KBS bans Orange Caramel’s newest video
Last week, the band’s agency, Pledis Entertainment, told local media that KBS notified the company that the new music video failed to pass the broadcaster’s inspection.
KBS pointed out that featuring the three singers — Nana, Raina and Lizzy — on a plastic pack of sushi may belittle human rights.
Orange Caramel’s fans showed a mixed response to the news. While some people said the broadcaster went too far and is limiting creativity, others noted that depicting the three members as sushi on a table could reinforce sexism in the entertainment industry.
Pledis said that it will remove certain parts of the video and ask for another review from KBS.
Meanwhile, KBS also stated that Ga-in’s “Fxxk U” cannot be aired due to provocative words in the lyrics.
