Kang Minkyung, Dongwoon's 'Udon' single deemed 'unfit' for broadcast


Davichi's Kang Minkyung and B2ST's Dongwoon recently collaborated for a winter duet called, 'Udon'. Many have wondered whether it would surpass the popularity of the summer hit song, 'Cold Noodles', which was released last year by SNSD's Jessica and comedianPark Myung Soo. However, it appears that they won't be able to find out, since the song failed to pass the broadcasting review. The producers, after a stunted appeal, decided to drop the review case. On December 20th, one producer spoke up about the decision to walk away from the review: "As soon as the recordings were done, we spoke to the broadcasters and came to the conclusion that the broadcasting review was not going to be in favor of 'Udon'. When the song was taken to the actual broadcasting company for a review, it was evaluated asbeing 'not suitable for broadcast to the public.'" The reason for the broadcaster's rejection was because they believed that the Korean word for 'udon',"galak noodles", should have been used instead of the Japanese term. The producer continued, "It was a big mistake on our part for not realizing that utilizing a term that is commonly used everyday would not pass the review. We realized that the term "galak noodles" would have been more preferred during the latter stages of production, but when we switched the word "udon" with "galak", it seemed rather strange and we thought that it would be difficult to convey the original meaning; and so, we just gave up." Although the producer tried to use the term "galak noodles" instead of "udon", the former term did not fit well into the song's melody as well as the original. Nevertheless, 'Udon' is currently receiving much love on the music charts. Source: OSEN via Nate
