TVXQ modified the lyrics of "Before U Go" to pass MBC's standards


SM Entertainment has decided to modify the lyrics to TVXQ's newest song, "Before U Go" in order to pass the rigid broadcast standards upheld by MBC. The song is the title track for TVXQ's repackaged "Keep Your Head Down" album. It's only been a couple of days since TVXQ released their new song, but fans already noticed a change in the lyrics during its premiere broadcast through MBC Radio. The original lyrics, "I was a stupid fool who couldn't even take care of you", was modified to "I was stupid and couldn't even take care of you." SM Entertainment made an official clarification on this matter on March 18th, as they stated, "MBC's Radio and TV were considering rejecting the song for broadcast because of the lyrics. This is why we changed 'stupid fool' to just 'stupid'." Though MBC held some concerns about the lyrics, it's said that SBS and KBS had no problems with them at all, and thus allowed the song to pass their standards test. This change will mean that TVXQ will have to sing the modified version of the song on MBC's "Music Core", while they sing the original version on KBS's "Music Bank" and SBS's "Inkigayo".
