Numerous new songs by various artist have been recently deemed unsuitable for broadcast by KBS.
On July 27th, KBS considered HyunA‘s track “Do It!” inappropriate due to its profane language with lines like “I’m a b**ch.”
Heize‘s track “No Way” and “Underwater” also failed the network’s standards for having lyrics like “I don’t really give a f**k now” and indecent Korean slang.
Miss A‘s Fei‘s “Sweet Sexy Fei” was banned for including a brand name, “Coco Chanel,” in its lyrics.
Despite Beenzino‘s request for reconsideration, his comeback track “January” featuring Yang Dong Geun was banned once again due to the reference of the company name “Facebook.”
