Did Lady Gaga Plagiarize Korean Girl Group SNSD?

Did Lady Gaga Plagiarize Korean Girl Group SNSD?
Christopher Victorio/OC Weekly

And we thought she just plagiarized Madonna's "Express Yourself." This YouTube clip juxtaposes Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and South Korean girl group Girls Generation/SNSD's "Be Happy"--and they sound almost exactly the same. SNSD's "Be Happy" was taken down two pitches for this comparison. Listen after the jump.
Release Dates:
"Born This Way" (single), released Feb. 11, 2011
"Be Happy" (from Oh! album), released Jan. 28, 2010
