[News] 140806 KBS deems songs by JYJ, HyunA, and Yenny (HA:TFELT) unfit for broadcast


KBS has deemed songs by JYJ, HyunA, Yenny (HA:TFELT), and more as unfit for broadcast.

According to KBS on August 6, 14 songs failed to satisfy the broadcast network’s rules and regulations in terms of content. Among those were “Back Seat” from JYJ’s second album ‘Just Us’, “Blacklist” and “French Kiss” from HyunA’s ‘A Talk’, and HA:TFELT’s “Bond” from her solo debut album.

The reasons given for the songs being branded as unsuitable for broadcast include the sexually suggestive nature of “Back Seat” (specifically the line “Put you on my back seat”), the line “Do it” in HyunA’s “French Kiss”, the inappropriate language and curse words in “Blacklist”, and the expression “God damn” in Yenny’s “Bond”.

KBS also banned rock band Unchained’s “Paris” and “Talebearing” and Rose Garden’s “You’re Not My Style”, citing the lyrics as harmful to the mental development of juveniles.

yunhoghanaI think I learned more from the children in Africa than they learned from me.”

U-Know Yunho attended the press conference of KBS’ ’2013 Road Of Hope’ program that was held in Yeoido and said, “I left with the determination to create great memories with the children I was set to meet.”

He continued to add, “I learned about what the children need most. Solving hunger is more important than curing illnesses for them, and they all have a sadness in them that can only be born from experience,” and “I realized that things I take for granted aren’t always available in the opposite side of the world.”

Near the end of his speech, U-Know Yunho stated, “Although I went on this journey to do something for the children, I came back with so many dreams that they gave me.”

The special ’2013 Road of Hope’ program will follow top stars like Lee Bo Young, Park Sang Won, U-Know Yunho and Kim Mi Suk as they travel to impoverished countries to give hope to the children who live there.

Meanwhile, the heartwarming stories will begin airing every Saturday at 5:30pm on KBS1 from the 16th of November.

[News] 121230 KBS K-pop Festival’s Sound System Exposes The Vocal Talents of Idols, ‘Forced MR Removal’

[News] 121230 KBS K-pop Festival’s Sound System Exposes The Vocal Talents of Idols, ‘Forced MR Removal’

The KBS K-pop Festival’s honest sound system has exposed the vocal talents of K-pop idols.

KBS 2TV’s ‘K-pop Festival’ was aired on the 28th of December and was graced by singers who shined in 2012. They sang their biggest hit of 2012 and also got together for collaboration performances that exuded a completely different charm than usual.

However, aside from the dance numbers, the performances of the attending idol singers fell below expectations and were disappointing. As the entire concert was performed live, their embarrassing vocal talent, or lack thereof, was exposed. The sound of singers struggling to catch their breath could be heard through the microphones, and there were some idols who couldn’t sing at all because they were out of breath. There were also idols who lip-synced and relied on the AR of their songs, making the entire ordeal awkward for those who were watching.

The only people who survived the exposure were 2AM, K. Will, Hyorin, Ailee, SHINee, Noeul and TVXQ. Hyorin showcased her vocal talent through a sexy performance, as well as during her collaboration number of the guitarist Park Joo Won. SHINee and TVXQ gave perfect performances as they sang so well to extremely difficult choreography that it made one wonder if they were actually singing live or lip-synching.

Meanwhile, netizens left comments on various online community sites as they were watching the performances. Most of the netizens picked up on KBS’ sound system and the singers’ vocal talent. They left comments such as, “KBS’ K-Pop Festival’s sound system has no mercy. A forced MR removal”, “The singers vocal talents are exposed. It’s embarrassing to listen to”, “This shows who has talent and who doesn’t”, “It must be embarrassing for the singers. How will they perform live”, “I can hear their voices so well. I can easily tell who can’t sing”, “Is today a MR removal special?” and “Forced live performances.”

[TRANS] 121224 Choikang Changmin To Work With Kang Ho Dong On His New KBS Variety Show

[TRANS] 121224 Choikang Changmin To Work With Kang Ho Dong On His New KBS Variety Show

– His first regular appearance on a variety show since making his debut 8 years ago

– High expectations for him to become ‘the 2nd Lee Seung Gi’

TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin (24, Shim Changmin) has become ‘Kang Ho Dong’s New Man’.

According to broadcasting representatives, Choikang Changmin will be working with Kang Ho Dong on his return to KBS variety shows. This will be the first time that Choikang Changmin makes a regular appearance on a variety show. Since making his debut as a member of TVXQ in 2004, Choikang Changmin has been focusing on his activities as a singer for the past eight years.

It has been found that the production team have high expectations for Choikang Changmin’s addition to the show.

Choikang Changmin has not revealed much of his true personality on broadcasted TV shows aside from his image as a singer. He has not tapped into his potential in variety shows yet. Though his image as a model student is strong, close friends of Choikang Changmin have stated that he is famous for being a ‘character full of mischief’. He laughs a lot too. Many are curious to see if Choikang Changmin will be revealing his ‘lacking’ charm in this new variety show. There are broadcasting representatives who are banking on Choikang Changmin becoming ‘the 2nd Lee Seung Gi’.

The KBS Variety Sector has stated that it is in the final stages of preparing the new show, calling in celebrities such as Choikang Changmin to make appearances. Set to begin airing mid-January of 2013, the show is currently preparing to start filming at the beginning of the new year.

The concept of Kang Ho Dong’s new KBS variety show has yet to be revealed. Though there are rumors that it will be a talk show, the production company is keeping silent on the details of the show. The KBS Variety Sector has revealed that they are planning to air Kang Ho Dong’s new program on Saturdays. A representative stated, “Kang Ho Dong’s new program is being kept a secret,” and “We’re making sure it stays this way because the wrong information during the preparation process could start the show off on the wrong foot.”

[TRANS] 121128 Will The Doors Of Broadcasting Companies Open For JYJ? “Discussions Are Needed”

[TRANS] 121128 Will The Doors Of Broadcasting Companies Open For JYJ? “Discussions Are Needed”

Will the doors of broadcasting companies open for JYJ, who have been locked in a legal battle with their former agency SM Entertainment?

Following the announcement on the 28th that SM Entertainment and JYJ reached an agreement after three years locked in a legal battle, many are curious to see if this will lead to an appearance in broadcasted TV shows by JYJ.

According to legal circles, SM and the three members of JYJ reached an agreement that all contracts signed by the two parties had effectively ended on the 31st of July, 2009. All relevant lawsuits were to be dropped, and neither party would interfere with the opposite party’s future activities.

With the end of the lawsuit, new possibilities have opened up for the three members of JYJ in the entertainment industry. When JYJ began their individual activities, they weren’t able to appear on TV shows run by the three main broadcasting companies due to their lawsuit with SM. Though Park Yoochun and Kim Jaejoong have been making appearances on TV through dramas, they have not been able to appear on music programs or awards shows since releasing their albums.

For example, in May of 2011, KBS explained the reason why JYJ were not to appear on variety shows such as ‘Music Bank’ when they stated, “JYJ’s lawsuit has not ended with their former agency. It is normal for us to wait and refrain from casting celebrities who are locked in legal battles, as their appearance on TV shows may influence the results of their lawsuits.”

Now that an agreement has ended the lawsuit, the spotlight has shifted to the three main broadcasting companies. Many are curious to see if the end of the lawsuit that has freed JYJ from restrictions will give them the chance to appear on music programs or variety shows.

Regarding this, Jeon Jin Guk, the director of KBS’ variety sector, stated in a phone conversation with OSEN that, “We heard the news through an article. I believe the details of our stance on the issue will be solidified through further discussion,” and “I don’t believe there will be any reason for us to refrain from allowing JYJ to appear on KBS TV shows if their lawsuit has come to a complete end, as that was the reason for our actions.”

MBC’s Won Mak Sik stated, “Though the lawsuit between the two parties has ended, we believe it is a problem that requires time to observe the situation.” Another representative of MBC’s variety sector explained, “We have not yet discussed the possibilities of JYJ appearing on music programs and variety shows,” and “This is an issue that must be considered by the entire variety sector.”

PD Park Seung Min of SBS’ ‘Inkigayo’ gave a short statement of, “This is an issue for the entire variety sector to discuss. I can’t say much because there hasn’t been any discussion as of now.”

NEWS 111004 KBS President “JYJ” May Request For Reexamination of Banned Song

[News] 111004 KBS President “JYJ May Request For Reexamination For Banned Song [Pierrot]


In regards to the group JYJ’s song [Pierrot], which was banned by KBS citing the reason that it specifically attacks a particular person, KBS President said, “They may submit a request for a reexamination anytime.”

On the afternoon of the 4th, during a paliamentary inspection of the Committee for Culture, Sports, Tourism & Broadcasting Communication, Jun Byung Hun (Democratic Party), a member of the National Assembly, questioned KBS President Kim In Kyu and asked, “JYJ’s [Pierrot] is banned because the lyrics ‘PSM’ is targeted at a specific person. What is the standard of consideration?”

President Kim said, “According to the deliberation committee, the lyrics ‘PSM’ in JYJ’s [Pierrot] are problematic as it points to a specific person” and “Although JYJ’s side has said that ‘PSM’ stands for ‘Professional Success Music’, it doesn’t match when the lyrics are looked in their entirety.”

He also added, “JYJ may submit a request for a reexamination any time.”

To this, Congressman Jun asked in return, “Is KBS the spokesperson for Mr Lee Soo Man?” and “Why do you refuse to believe the person who wrote the song? Why do you have to interpret ‘PSM’ as refering to Mr Lee Soo Man?” President Kim said in replied, “The members of the deliberation committee judged that it is likened to that given name” and “I will request that the deliberation committee be more open to flexible interpretations.”

The other day, on 28 September, KBS announced the results for the review of JYJ’s album through their website and judged that the songs [Pierrot] and [Mission] were banned as they contained “lyrics that were personal attacks”.

KBS had explained that the song [Pierrot] resulted in being banned because it suggested “personal attacks to an individual” and that it showed a personal grudge towards a particular individual as the lyrics “‘P.S.M’ obviously represents ‘President, Lee Soo Man’”.
