Sunny Hill’s "Prayer" MV Banned from TV Networks
Sunny Hill released the music video for their latest single “Prayer” on August 5th, but fans won’t be able to see it on TV. The video has been criticized for scenes depicting the abuse of a mutant.
Both KBS and MBC determined the music video to be unsuitable for viewing, specifically pointing at a scene where a syringe is inserted into a mutant’s head to draw blood. Other scenes causing controversy included Misung and Janghyun chasing after the mutant and shooting at him with a tranquilizer gun, as well as a scene where a jar is shown containing the mutant’s ear, alluding to his death.
As the song is sorrowful itself, Loen Entertainment believes the video fits this atmosphere. They are currently debating whether or not to resubmit the video for evaluation.
A representative also said, “We hope people will stop picking apart the scenes, but rather look at the video as a whole.”
