Boy band Big Bang leader G-Dragon, recently promoting his first solo album, has been voted the most overrated singer-songwriter.

According to a week-long online poll carried out on over 15,000 people starting September 22 on portal website dcinside.com, 52.6 percent of respondents said the 21-year-old was the most overrated.

G-Dragon has been widely recognized as a prominent songwriter since his debut, composing several of Big Bang’s hit songs and his own recent solo single “Heartbreaker” which remained atop music charts for over a month.

However, Sony ATV and the singer’s agency YG Entertainment have been in a dispute over Sony’s claim that G-Dragon plagiarized Flo Rida’s “Right Round”, leaving fans confused and in heated debate over the accusation.

Singer and producer Park Jin-young, founder and CEO of JYP Entertainment, followed in second place, receiving 6.8 percent of the votes.

Park has a number of hit songs and discovered some of Korea’s most popular singers including Asian pop sensation Rain and the Wonder Girls. But he was also at the center of controversy in the past for his seemingly sexually explicit lyrics and accusations of plagiarism.

Member Lee Min-woo of six-member boy band Shinhwa came in third with 6.5 percent of the votes.
