Akdong Musician’s “Galaxy” Ruled Unfit for Broadcast by KBS
KBS has been on a roll lately.
On April 16, it was revealed that KBS banned one of Akdong Musician’s songs, “Galaxy,” from the duo’s debut album “Play.” The reasoning was that the lyrics of the song include the word ‘galaxy’ a total of nine times, which could potentially lead listeners to think that it is an endorsement for the Samsung brand of the same name. MBC and SBS, however, did not find a problem with the song.
Upon receiving the results of the song review, YG Entertainment said that they will not be changing the lyrics for KBS broadcast.
KBS recently also banned songs by Crayon Pop, Mad Clown, and rookie Eddy Kim.
