Published Categorized as Kpop

BLACKPINK’s “Pink Venom” has been excluded from KBS’s “Music Bank,” but why?

On September 5, various music industry experts said the latest release from the group was excluded from the music show after KBS deemed it unfit for broadcast based on their standards.

The reason?

The song includes ‘brand name’ in the lyrics, thus, it was deemed unfit for broadcast. It is said the track violated article 46 of the broadcast standard such as including a brand name in the lyrics.  

YG has chosen not to rewrite or petition the song for consideration.

By the way, this is not the first BLACKPINK song that was deemed unfit for broadcast by KBS. Previously, KBS music video review also banned BLACKPINK “Kill This Love” music video because it violates traffic laws. They also previously banned “Boombaya” for the words “F U Pay me.”

It is known that KBS is extremely strict with its broadcasting laws.

What do you think of this?
