DJ DOC clarified that their newest song "Address Known" was not misogynistic, but aimed specifically at President Park Geun Hye. 

Originally, the trio was supposed to sing "Address Known" on stage at the candlelight protest on the 26th. However, a women's organization took issue with some of the lines in the song, and they could not stand on stage. DJ DOC said, "We were told by the people who organized the protest that we could not perform. 'Address Known' is a diss against President Park Geun Hye and the government administration, so it's disappointing that they saw it as misogynistic."

The problematic line was "Good by Miss Park senorita," and it was explained that 'Miss Park' is for President Park Geun Hye and stood for 'Mistake Park', and 'senorita' was used to talk about her political party 'Saenoori-dang' because they sounded similar in Korean.

Because they could not perform for the crowd, DJ DOC decided to participate in the protest by lighting their own candles to join the protest. The majority of protesters and netizens were disappointed and appalled that the lyrics could be even seen as misogynistic when the entire song was an obvious political commentary.

    it must be something lost in translation, right? I really don't get how anyone could think these lyrics are misogynistic.

    Those decrying these lyrics as being an example of misogyny need to brush up on their English (and Spanish, for that matter).  "Miss" is an honorific used to refer to an unmarried woman.  "Señorita" is the Spanish language equivalent.  These terms in of themselves are not expressions denoting misogyny.  At the very most, referring to a married woman as "Miss" could possibly be seen as slightly disrespectful.  Hardly an act of misogyny though.  This whole controversy seems rather odd.

    I guess I did assume what AKP quoted above were the actual lyrics, not the translated version of the lyrics. If the original are actually in Korean ignore my comment above.
