EXO and Black Pink's new songs have been banned on KBS


According to KBS, the title of EXO's new song "LOTTO" indicates a specific market product, mostly likely referring to the lottery, and cannot be used on the station. In the case of Black Pink's "BOOMBAYAH", they pointed out that "Henny" becomes mentioned in the lyrics, a shortened term for the liquor 'Hennessey'. "BOOMBAYAH" furthermore contains inappropriate language that goes, "Middle finger up F".

In response to the ban, EXO will reportedly be using "Louder" as their promoting song instead of "LOTTO" on KBS as well as on MBC. Black Pink are also likely to adjust their lyrics to lift the ban.

KOREA BANNING SYSTEM STRIKES AGAIN

KBS being KBS.

But for Boombayah, in the SBS broadcast, didn't they change the lyrics for the FU pay me part?

Yes they did but KBS just doesn't want it so whatever...

"specific market product" is it not just a noun? It doesn't specify which lottery right?

Can't they sensor "innapropriate language"? How do you think 90% of rap songs are played on the radio? Kbs always does this shit.

Overacting in case of Black pink. Cheer up EXOLs, your oppas weren't deterred. You shouldn't be either.

I kinda get the EXO ban but.... it's overkill. BLACKPINK already adjusted the "F You Pay Me" line for SBS so it would only make sense that they would continue to promote it that way... There really wasn't a point to banning it, only to allow them to change the song lyrics and perform it anyway. Besides that, a bottle of soju is barely more than a dollar in a convenience store - do they REALLY think her saying "bottle full of henny" is gonna increase drinking - when the alcohol mentioned is hardly even available here? I swear, some of these broadcast companies are downright dramatic.

I'm 100% not surprised by Blackpink. I was actually surprised by the lyric being in the song at all (even though I love it!). Too bad it has to be adjusted but oh well.
