The production team of the Korean BL, ‘The Eighth Sense’ have responded to the allegations of plagiarism regarding its logo.
‘The Eighth Sense’ is about Ji Hyun (played by rookie actor Oh Jun Taek), a small-town freshman in Seoul, who struggles to connect with others in the bustling city. Jae Won (played by actor Lim Ji Sub), who is returning from military service sparks mutual curiosity. They bond over surfing and share a kiss during a club trip. But Jae Won acts indifferent afterward. Is their connection just a fleeting or lifelong love?
The series garnered a positive response from viewers, who praised and thoroughly enjoyed the show (available internationally on Rakuten Viki and local streaming sites in Korea). However, fans have observed the identical resemblance between the series’ opening logo and the logo for K-Pop group INFINITE’s ‘The Chaser,’ which was released back in 2012.
