Pop star Lee Hyo-ri's composer arrested over plagiarism
By Kim Eun-jung
SEOUL, Sept. 14 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean composer suspected of selling copied songs to pop singer Lee Hyo-ri was arrested Tuesday over fraud and business interference, prosecutors said.

Bahnus, whose real name is Lee Jae-yong, was sued by singer Lee's agency in June for selling seven songs allegedly plagiarized from foreign musicians' songs for 29 million won (US$24,000). The songs were used on Lee's latest album released in April.
