Mario’s “Damage,” the rapper’s first song in two years, has been ruled unfit for broadcast by KBS.
KBS said, “In the lyrics, ‘Like a retard, I miss you after time has passed’ could potentially have a negative psychological effect on the disabled, so we ruled the song unfit.”
The song, released on April 29, was composed by Kim Chang Rak, and tells the story of a man who regrets letting someone go well after the fact. Mario’s unique voice is well-matched by the talented vocal from girl group Spica, Kim Boa.
In the KBS rulings for the last week of April, out of 122 songs, 116 passed and six were ruled unfit for broadcast.
Soompiers, what do you think? Was this ruling justified?
