11 K-Pop Dances That Were Banned For Being Too Sexy

Vibrato

Most of the big broadcasting companies in Korea (MBC, KBS, SBS) have strict standards on what dance moves make it on stage — especially KBS. Being sexy is great, but the dance moves for these songs were banned from broadcast for being too provocative, and groups were forced to change their choreography to be allowed on stage.

Were the bans justified? You be the judge.
