Gigi Leung denies involvement in plagiarism case

March 30 – Gigi Leung’s representative recently issued a statement regarding the recent plagiarism incident in her music video for “Stop and Breathe.”

As reported by Mingpao, earlier this week, a group of artists and creators, Chloeography Project, took to social media to accuse the creators of the music video of copying their 2018 work titled “Maybe Tomorrow,” claiming that they never authorized any party to use their image concept.

They also shared a few comparison shots to show the similarities between the music video and their previous works. In one, Gigi stands in front of a giant silver ball, while in another, said giant ball is rolling in the middle of the road.

In response to the allegations, Gigi’s camp stated that Gigi was invited to sing the song and shoot the music video to promote a positive message of decompression and emotional relief through the feeling of one’s own breathing.

“As for the MV, Gigi did not participate in the creative part, and the further processing of the MV will be handed over to the ‘Stop and Breathe’ team. We will do our best to cooperate if necessary,” the statement added.

The music video has already been removed from YouTube and other platforms.

It’s worth noting that the music video was directed by director Steve Yuen, who said he is currently in communication with the band, reaching out to Chloeography Project regarding the issue.
