KBS has announced the list of recently released songs that failed to satisfy the broadcast company’s criteria.
According to the results revealed on August 6, the banned songs include JYJ‘s “Just Us” and “Back Seat” from their second album, HyunA‘s “Blacklist” and “French Kiss” from her third solo album, and HA:TFELT‘s “Bond” from her first solo album. Overall, 14 tracks were deemed unsuitable for broadcast.
The lyrics of JYJ’s “Back Seat” were considered to be sexually suggestive, with the line “Put you on my back seat” referring to a possible relationship between a man and a woman. HyunA’s “French Kiss” did not make the cut due to the expression “Do it,” which could be considered risqué.
“Blacklist” by HyunA was criticized for the use of swear words and inappropriate language, and HA:TFELT (Ye Eun)’s “Bond” was banned due to the English expression “God damn.”
In addition, KBS disapproved of the lyrics included in rock band Unchained‘s songs “Paris” and “Talebearing” as well as Rose Garden‘s “You’re Not My Style.” The songs were considered harmful for the mental development of teens.
