Netizen's Post Photos of Chinese Broadcasters Copying This Korean TV Show Program

Usually copying is a form of flattery, but in this case, it is just down right plagiarism. Netizens are in a complete uproar over this Chinese broadcasting program for taking this hit Korean TV programs concept as their own.

The show is notorious for having wild stage sets and rap battles, showcasing some rough and tough rappers as well as featuring some familiar faces, such as Jay Park and San E, exclusively as judges. The show is already in its sixth season.
