Wonder Girls' new album 'Why So Lonely' is facing trouble even before its official release. 

According to Star News on June 22, one of the tracks in Wonder Girls' new album titled "Sweet & Easy" was deemed inappropriate for broadcast by KBS. The reason is due to the lyrics that mention a specific brand. Fortunately, their other new songs "Why So Lonely" and "To The Beautiful You" are permitted for broadcast.

Only in Korea is it wrong to mention a brand name or a word that's used as a brand name in songs.

ok but the brand can take legal action against kbs, so obviously they should be careful about this...

Why do they ban songs that include the use of a brand again?

Because it is like advertisement for the brand. KBS doesn't want to do free advertising for another company.

not only that, legally the brand can sue kbs for using its name without consent.

but there are times when KBS ban songs that don't mention a brand but a word just happens to be one that a brand uses, e.g. f(x)'s Red Light (banned because of the word caterpillar) and AKMU's Galaxy (banned because of the word galaxy).

Rather, the current advertisers on KBS will sue them for displaying the product of a competitor.

No. Nonono. Wonder girls used to be an admirable group that wasnt about sexy, it was a group i was so proud of. "U know wonder girls? Yah theyre from korea, where im from" but now... theyve gone so low. So so low. Its not their fault i guess. In the entertainment industry, sex sells and they r probs just tting to match that. But... but.. i cant help but be disappointed in their "comebacks" dont hate me, but ur plenty allowed to disagree.

It was banned because They mentioned a brand name, not because of sexual content. Did you read the article?

They are still admirable and they do mature and chic sexy not trashy sexy and as someone said above this was not because it was too sexy

Yah i get that but they seem to be trying to hard to be sexy. The comeback they had a while ago had me shocked by how sexual it was
