KBS Bans Park Ji Yoon’s “Beep” MV, Agency Responds
Broadcast station KBS has continued to ban music videos deemed unfit for broadcast.
On February 20, KBS announced the results of this week’s meeting regarding music videos that did not meet the censorship criteria. The three videos that failed to meet KBS’ standards, and were thus labelled unsuitable for broadcast, are Park Ji Yoon‘s “Beep,” Brown Eyed Soul‘s “Pass Me By,” and M.O.A‘s “I Will Call You.”
Park Ji Yoon’s agency Mystic89 revealed their stance on the issue to Sports Seoul, “We have heard the news and are aware of it. After holding an internal meeting, we decided to first re-edit the video and then request a deliberation.”
Due to the “excessive” ending credits of “Beep,” the video was judged unfit for broadcast by KBS. All of the staff members and celebrities that participated in producing the video are listed at the end of the video, but to meet KBS’ requirements, Park Ji Yoon’s agency has decided to edit the ending credits.
This is not the first time an artist has been criticized for excessive credits at the end of a music video. In 2012, Ulala Session‘s “Beautiful Night” was deemed unfit for broadcast for the same reason.
Just a few days ago, KBS announced their decision to ban Ga In‘s “Fxxk You” and Tae Jin Ah‘s version of Rain‘s “La Song” among others.
