Suzy released the music video for her latest single "Sober" this week, and while people are obviously loving it, many are also pointing out how similar the song is to a famous American hit.

K-pop fans have been debating on social media about whether or not "Sober" sounds like Selena Gomez's "Bad Liar," which was released last year.

Both tracks share a similar minimalist instrumental and whispered vocal style, leading fans to argue over whether it's plagiarism, innocent inspiration, or whether the songs are even alike at all. 

Check out both songs below, and let us know if you they're similar or not!
