mwah, of  every album at least one song gets banned, save more modest groups like April. Put in one "Chanel"or "Gucci" and at least one broadcasting company will ban your song (looking at you kbs)

For the people who are curious, what they mean by "words that are too similar to cursing" they mean play on words; it's like how they also banned Dalshabet's "Joker" because the pronunciation sounds like a korean curse word. It's not unusual for LE to add those sort of play on words in her songs tho, she did the same with "L.I.E" but it went unnoticed lmao

OK, i'm finna ask the same question that Chris Tucker had asked in that '90s cult classic, "Friday".  What kind of shit is that?  That's it.  This is definitely why I am truly frustrated entirely with KBS' very strict censorship because they are really just notorious for banning songs for all the silly, lame and incredibly stupid reasons in the whole wide world.  Man, her song did not, I repeat, DID NOT have any actual cursing in the song at all, period.  And as a matter of fact, i'm sure that they didn't EVEN looked very close enough at the lyrics just to see that they aren't any American curse words at all.  So, with that being said, i'm calling on KBS to just VERY SOON dumb down a whole lot on their censorship and not even bother banning any songs from broadcast at all UNLESS they do have real actual problematic lyrics condoning illegal and risky behavior of any kind as well as violence of any kind including domestic violence towards women.  And other actual problematic content like that as well.  So, I hope that KBS will get their shit together after this AND I also hope that the KCC can throw those strict music show regulations right out of the door in addition to that.  Just saying, ya'll.

Best part of album season: which broadcaster is going to be pressed first?

Words are "too similar" to cursing, but aren't actually cursing? What fuckery is this?

Chrysantheneum centen Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Well, I say duck instead f "the F word"a lot of times when with family to curse but also not to curse, if you know what I mean

centen Chrysantheneum Wednesday, April 5, 2017

But should saying "duck" get it banned? Everyone under the sun knows what you mean but that doesn't mean you actually said something inappropriate.

It's the thought that counts
