IZ*ONE's track 'We're in Love, Right?' deemed unfit for broadcast by KBS

IZ*ONE
IZ*ONE's new track "We're in Love, Right?" has been banned by KBS.

'Produce 48' project group IZ*ONE released "We're in Love, Right?" as part of their debut album 'COLOR*IZ', which featured "La Vie En Rose" as the title track. However, on October 31, KBS revealed the censorship committee has deemed "We're in Love, Right?" unfit for broadcast on the network.

KBS stated, "The lyrics conflict with other broadcast regulations, and all the lyrics are in Japanese." "We're in Love, Right?" was written by the producer of Japanese girl group AKB48Akimoto Yasushi, and it was revealed through IZ*ONE's debut showcase on the 29th.

is that why i had to hear the korean version of GG's mr.taxi, instead of the japanese one, when the japanese ver. is clearly better! Really grow up, what if american shows said korean idol could perform their song unless they were in english.

I think Japan does the same thing, only allowing Japanese language which is why there are different versions :)

Not true. Japan don't have any type of censorship like Korea. Censorship on KBS (national TV) is just awful and a joke - really what other free-democratic-country does something like that? I am fully aware of history between Korea and Japan, but I am form Poland and people here were killed for speaking Polish and were forced to speak German and Russian during World Wars and occupancies and still there's no problem like that even t.A.T.u and Tokio Hotel were once one of the most popular artist in Poland.

Agree with you..because they only thought that they only the one suffered by Japanese..there is still other WWII countries that being suffered,their great2 grandfather being chopped head off,bodies everywhere on the beach..The Old Survivor even said "The best way to work towards the future, is to learn from the past."
“They should do whatever they can to avoid war, because to live in peace is a blessing. That’s all I would say to them.” but us here new generation of the world,create a War..

They banned Orange Caramel for being in a plastic wrapper dressed as seafood, serously KBS needs to get out of the 1850's and join the rest of the world.

Imagine how Sakura, Nako and Hitomi would feel when they were told that the song is ban because it has japanese lyrics =.= It's sad that IZ*ONE is a Korean-Japanese girl group when there is still political issues going on between Japan and Korea, making it really awkward. I hope they won't be affected too much.

Yes.

They ban some songs because a single word is in Japanese. This isn't a new thing, is been happening for years.

I do believe Japan shows do the same thing if it's not Japanese though.

That's just a whole lotta bullshit right there. And that's why it's such a very good thing that all of the other major TV and radio stations all across South Korea are a whole lot more relaxed than the Korean BANNING System. This is some bullshit, man.

These brainiacs should've thought about all of this before the damn show started. They were fine with Japanese/Korean crossover then..... Unfair


Now it's all only about the Kpop....... Simply money stunt this has become PER USUAL and I feel for the Japanese taken for a ride...


Then again I do believe Japan music shows have the same thing not allowing Kpop with Hangul over there?

KBS literally bans everything so I'm not even bothered or surprised. They are literally the biggest cry baby and pussies on the planet besides Azaelia Banks, T-Swizzle, CNN, Dispatch and TMZ. KBS literally, LITERALLY bans everything.
