Here we go again. On August 5th, the Ministry of Gender Equality and Familycame out with a list of four more songs that were banned on grounds of being ‘harmful media to the youth.’

The music video for TVXQ’s “Before U Go“, Kim Hyun Joong’s “Please“, Homme’s “Still Eating Well“, and DJ DOC’s “Tonight” were added to the list of the new bans. As with previous bans, the reasoning lies in the mentioning of alcohol and other ‘hazardous content’, as well as the use of violence.

 

Kim Hyun Joong’s “Please” was banned for two lines that said, “Because I’m drunk”and “Between the spread of the cigarette smoke.”

The music video for “Before U Go” was banned for fear of promoting violence and gambling. Representatives of SM Entertainment retorted, “We have submitted material to refute their decision.”

As previously revealed, albums containing banned songs are not available for sale to minors under the age of 19 and cannot be played on raido or TV before 10 PM.
