With the group's debut date just around the corner, GP Basic has been gaining an explosive amount of attention from many, specifically due to their such young age. Besides Janey who currently attends elementary school, all members are merely middle school students. Although their overall concept of "youth" is pretty fresh for K-pop industry, it seems like many people are worried about what's awaiting the girls. Some believe that dressing prepubescent girls in tight pants and high heels is ethically wrong and should not be attempted. There is also a problem for GP Basic's appearance on various music programs, since a handful of them require parental guidance for those under 15. The shows include KBS Music Bank, MBC Show! Music Core, and SBS Inkigayo. If all three shows ban young kids from even viewing the show, how will they be able to perform in the show? About this question, Korea Communications Standards Commission declared, "The group's appearance itself will not be a problem, but it is definitely inappropriate. Their choreography and wardrobe will be the main factor on our banning decision." I just can't wait to see the girls' first performance...
