After representatives of Britney Spears made allegations of plagiarism against Lee Hyori, fresh doubts have been cast on much of singer’s previous work, including her college master’s degree thesis. Members of the soon-to-be-renamed Hwang Woo-Suk Center for Academic Ethics have begun a review of her work, and they have found some unsettling inconsistencies.
Professor Jaesoo Lee explains, “We did find it a bit odd that her thesis was printed on a dusty copy of Annalen Der Physik and dated 1916. Furthermore, why did she hand in a physics paper as a master’s thesis for a degree in Pottery? Most people hand in pots.” Suspicions have also been raised about Lee Hyori’s 2003 book, “The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin.” Lee responded to the allegations in her own words, “Oops, I didn’t do it again. I am that innocent.”
