KBS bans song from Tae-yang, Crush



Broadcaster KBS yesterday stated that the intro track of Tae-yang’s latest studio album “Rise” cannot be aired as it contains disturbing language.

“In the second week of June, there were four tracks that did not pass the KBS review,” noted the broadcaster, pointing out that Tae-yang and R&B artist Crush were on that list.On the other hand, Crush, a newcomer R&B musician from the local hip-hop music label Amoeba Culture, was not given a pass for his song “Give It To Me” because of the vivid depiction of sexual intercourse on the track.

As a broadcaster, KBS observes strict set of codes to regulate the content the station airs. In February, Ga-in’s “Fxxk U” and Orange Caramel’s “Catallena” were banned by KBS. The broadcaster explained that the former emphasized sexual imagery too much while the latter promoted sexism in the entertainment industry.
