As usual, KBS is on a banning spree!

The broadcasting company reviewed BTS's recently dropped special album, 'Young Forever,' and then revealed the results on May 4, ultimately judging six songs to be unfit for broadcast: "Whalien 52," "Converse High," "Dope," "Ma City," "Hold Me Tight," and "Intro: HwaYangYeonHwa."

SEE ALSO: BTS achieve their goal to enter Billboard's 'Hot 100' with 'DNA'!

The reasons were that "Whalien 52," "Dope," and "Hold Me Tight" had vulgarities and curses in the lyrics while "Converse High" and "Ma City" mentioned brands in the lryics. "Intro: HwaYangYeonHwa" had curses and included the line "scared retard," which KBS deemed inappropriate out of concern for offending disabled people.

Although they banned those songs, it appears that this won't affect BTS's promotions as their title song is "Fire," which was deemed appropriate for broadcast.

I really appreciate that they deemed the ableist line inappropriate (despite my unending love for Yoongi) but I'll probably never understand Hold Me Tight being deemed unfit. Whalien 52, as well.. *sigh* Ah well..

I'm a little bit late to post this but here:Converse High, Ma City - brand names yeah Whalien 52 - "oh f*ck that" Hold Me Tight - "shit"Intro HYYH - "god damn it" Dope - "All of you are so weak, such losers, crybabies and idiots."  idk why they didn't find this offensive earlier when they were promoting back then since they just sang it on stage as per usualbut anyway, it's not like they're going to promote these songs on music shows so chill ya'll :) it's not going to affect anything. so let's just calm down, cheer up & continue giving love to the boys!

As far as I recall the lyrics for Dope were somewhat altered in their broadcast appearances last year, which would suggest that they weren't deemed appropriate even back then.

yeah only once or twice, but if you watch them often, most of the times they performed with their original lyrics! even in mubank which is under KBS

"Whalien 52," "Converse High," "Dope," "Ma City," "Hold Me Tight," and "Intro: HwaYangYeonHwa." if they think these songs need to banned.. than should bann some other songs of other groups... freaking things... they just cant see bts winning... I hope all the other big companys go to fail... still bts fighting... saranhey
