I met Georgia Murray at The Peak’s Performance Boot Camp back in August. A South Korean documentary company heard about her and flew to BC to shoot this for the Korean edition of Elle magazine. (Scroll down for the article. It’s in Korean, so I have no idea what it says.)
How did this happen? Theft. Plagiarism. Scandal. Jail time. Georgia explained it to me this way:
I was first discovered by Korean fans when my original song, “We’ll Never Know,” was stolen off my Myspace page and presented to Hyori Lee, Korea’s biggest K-pop star.
The song, renamed “Swing,” was the lead single off Hyori’s 4th studio album and ended up going #1 in South Korea for several weeks before it was pulled from the shelves once the plagiarism story leaked.
The case was settled out of court and I am now the credited writer for the #1 hit song and our fan base continues to grow in Korea. The producer that stole my song went to jail for a year. They don’t mess around in Korea!
Here’s the proper verison of the song by Georgia herself.
