An indonesian version of "Man from the stars" has turned out to be a case of plagiarism .
A representative of SBS contents hub , which is responsible for managing the publication rights of Man from the stars revealed "the drama has not been made after acquiring the legal publishing rights. It can be considered to be a plagiarized version."
The indonesian drama Kau yang berasal dari bintang has been under heat for the striking similiarities between the drama and SBS Man from the stars .
According to a chinese media outlet , the setting and story are nearly identical to Man from the stars .
The first episode aired on 28 on RCTI .
"We are curently in talks with another Indonesian company regarding the official publishing rights , but this drama has begun airing. We are looking for a way to take action against the drama." SBS continued .

My opinion :
Actually i was upset when i was googling about this . Especially with nikita willy fansbase statement about the copyrights and license kau yang berasal dari bintang on twitter . And when nikita willy RT thats statement i think shes like "yes they right! RCTI was bought the license and the copyrights of man from the stars." And that was annoying for me .
To be honest , i dont like anything about plagiarism like SNSD X Cherrybelle , Super Junior X SM*SH , and other .
Dont mean to judge , but i just feel like ummm how can they compare SNSD with cherrybelle ? Cherrybelle plagiarism SNSD concept (music video , costum , etc)
And they can stay calm and said like "who is snsd? We dont know them" but the fact is they like snsd and they know them but just act like they original .
I hate it !
Please just be creative! You dont need to copy the other !
