Why You Should Stop Watching These Kpop YouTube Lyric Channels!

I wanted to talk about this on here because it's been blowing up on YouTube the past like month and I wasn't sure if people knew about it on here.

(At the very bottom I will list channels that do this and some safe channels you can watch, how to look out for these people who are ripping these artists off.)

Channels such as Jaeguchi, Zaty Farhani, and Lemonring (some of the most popular Kpop Lyric Channels) are stealing money from Kpop artists.

How so, you might ask, well for Jaeguchi it is slightly different than the other two. Jaeguchi is actually not an individual, it is technically a company behind the channel. There are a couple of people behind the channel who are making these videos. Most of the time the lyrics are inaccurate translations of the Korean lyrics. And here is the big kicker, they have a company behind them that is overriding the Copyright put on their videos by for example SM. For those of you that do not know about YouTube's copyright system I'll explain a bit.
1. As soon as your video is uploading it is flagged for any copyrighted material. So, when I post an NCT video, SM immediately claims it and places ADs on it. Therefore SM is making money off of my video. (In my case I do not have my channel monetized because I do not wish to make money off of these videos.) Therefore this would make my NCT video unmonetizable but otherwise fine to stay up on my channel because SM ismaking money off of it.
2. Most times a company will flag you for the music, however, in some cases they will get you for the Music Video which is a VISUAL copyright. Now this is important, a VISUAL copyright outweighs a MUSIC copyright. So, for example NCT 127's Kick It on my channel, SM claimed Kick It's Music Video instead of the song Kick It because the visual copyright is considered ABOVE the music.

This Is What You Should Be Seeing in A Lyric Video's Desciption if A Kpop Artist's Company is Claiming The Video like they should be:

(Note: This is taken from my Lyric Video for Jason Derulo, Lay, & NCT 127's 'Shut Up & Dance')

This is what you'd see on a channel like ZATY FARHANI's:

(Notice how additionally to SF9's 'Summer Breeze' there is another song claimed in the description. Meaning the artist of 'lost in your arms' is making half the revenue.)

ALSO, On JAEGUCHI'S Channel I noticed This:

(SM is not claiming Kick It, meaning they are not making money off of this video)

BUT, I Used 12 Seconds of Kick It in One of My Videos and This Appears in my Description:

(Yeah...so something has to be going on there!)


Okay back to Jaeguchi, the company behind them is somehow claiming that the videos they make are VISUALLY their's so therefore it outweigh's the MUSIC's copyright therefore allowing Jaeguchi to make a profit off of their videos. So, that means that for instance if Jaeguchi made an NCT 127 Punch lyric video SM would not be making money off of it.

Which is freaking ridiculous.

Now onto channels such as Zaty Farhani and Lemonring. They are doing it a different way. On these two channels you may notice that after the song is done there is still about a minute of content left at the end of their videos with some half-assed song that Zaty or Lemon has made themselves. They themselves are entering their songs into the YouTube copyright system and therefore when they upload these videos YouTube claims the songs therefore making it to where they can make half the revenue that the video makes. So, a dumbed down version of this:
If Zaty makes a Pentagon Dr. Bebe lyric video and Cube claims Dr. Bebe, Zaty is also claiming their minute song at the end. So, therefore Cube and Zaty are having to split what they make off the video whenever pretty much the entire video is not Zaty's content.

I just find this complete bullshit because there are idols who are not getting paid, who have to work part-time jobs in order to make money and here we have "SO CALLED FANS" stealing from them. It's absolute garbage!

Channels You Should Avoid if Possible:

Jyimina PJ (READ BELOW)
(Seems to have recently started doing it, check out how in their Kang Daniel 'Waves' Lyric video there are two songs claimed in the description, one being Daniel's and the other being a random ass song by an "Artist" named Yo2zing...well look what pops up whenever you type in Yo2zing into Google.)

Channels That Aren't Profiting Off of Kpop Artists (as of now):

Yankat (No longer active but their channel still has some older lyric videos you can watch)

NCT President & Council Intro [+ CMTY Plans]
Hello everyone, it's your NCT President. Today I wanted to share with you the plans the team and I have made for this term! There are currently 8 of us on the council and I've decided to split them up into Units (as NCT does.) So we have 4 Units in total and here they are: 127 Unit: The 127 unit is lead by the NCT 127 CMTY President and my fellow NCT editor @QueenPandaBunny. Myself, @QueenyCrossGene and @Yugykookie97 are also in this unit to promote the boys! The boys in this unit they'll be posting for are Taeil, Johnny, Taeyong, Yuta, Doyoung, Jaehyun, WinWin, Jungwoo, Mark, and Haechan. Dream Unit: The Dream Unit is lead by editor @MaeLyn, myself and @Starbell808 are also in this unit to help promote the boys! The boys in this unit that they'll be posting for (until they graduate) are Renjun, Jeno, Jaemin, Haechan, Chenle, and Jisung. NCT Dream has no president so it is still an interest but I thought I'd list the link here for you to follow the interest! WayV Unit: The WayV Unit is lead by the WayV CMTY President and fellow NCT editor @kpopfan88. Myself and @MelissaGarza are also in this unit to promote the boys! The boys in this unit are Kun, Ten, WinWin, Xiaojun, Lucas, Hendery, and Yangyang. U Unit: As to not restrict any of my editors from posting for their biases if their bias isn't in the unit they are representing I made the U Unit open for every editor. So every editor can post for any member in NCT! NCT U has no president so it is still an interest but I thought I'd list the link here for you to follow the interest! - If you haven't joined the NCT CMTY yet you can do so by clicking here! - I made these units up so that all the NCT members have a chance to get posted for. I feel like this gives an equal chance to all the members to be given a chance to shine and I thought it was a perfect way for the NCT 127 and WayV CMTYs to connect with the main NCT CMTY. - Also at this time if you'd like to be added to our taglist (or removed) please do let me know!! - NCTzen Council: @Halsyeon @MaeLyn @QueenPandaBunny @QueenyCrossGene @MelissaGarza @kpopfan88 @Starbell808 @Yugykookie97 NCTzen: @SimplyAwkward @IsoldaPazo @OppasManBun @jademarie4567 @Karinamiramda81 @bapastro @PrincessUnicorn @JohnEvans @ElanorKriegel @sukkyongwanser @KenyaMendoza @ParkKyungSoon @vkookie47 @simpsonsamantha @KpopIsPleasing @rocklv @Candy02 @kpopayisyen @samcorsam @dalenalw @Tiffiedannie If you'd like to be tagged or untagged please let us know!
BTS Fire and WTF Is Tropical House?
Alright y'all, we're going to talk about a topic that affects each and every one of us: TROPICAL HOUSE. It's a subgenre of house music that is influenced by instruments such as steel drums usually used in Jamaican, Cuban, etc music. It's been getting more and more popularity these days but I was still surprised to hear it in at BTS song! It is most noticeable in Rap Mon's part at 2:15. That awesome sound in the back? That's classic Tropical House music! Here are some more examples if you dig that sound: Jeremih - Don't Tell 'Em Thanks to @Lizzeh for reminding me about this awesome example!!!! Justin Bieber - Sorry & What Do You Mean Beibs made his comeback completely backed by this music. It sounds fresh, fun, and you CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT. Kygo - Stay Often referenced as the king of the rebirth of TropHouse, Kygo is your go-to DJ if you want nothing but Tropical House in your ears. Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are รœ Now This was the song that really brought the sound to mainstream recently. Those "dolphin sounds" or however you choose to describe it...yup, TropHouse. Fifth Harmony - Worth It & Work It's leaking into the girl group pop scene too with Fifth Harmony using an almost 8-bit take on Trop-Pop. Still groovy. Jamie XX - Loud Places And then we have Jamie XX that combines his smooth sleepy sounds from the XX with the catchy pop of Tropical House. Needless to say, it was love at first listen. Even though it has existed for a long time (and the influences that inspired existed looooooooooong before) I'm glad to hear more of it now in mainstream music! Enjoy!
