BTS' New Songs Are Too Inappropriate To Perform On Music Programs

Fans of BTS have been in an outrage since KBS announced that their new song "DNA" alongside other artists were unfit to be broadcasted.

According to KBS on September 20th, "Pied Piper", "Go Go", and their two hidden tracks "Skit: Hesitation and Fear" and "Sea" have been deemed unfit for broadcast. "Pied Piper" talks about brands such as Twitter and 'V Live', while "Go Go" and "Sea" contain inappropriate language. The skit has lyrics that are beeped out, and could be confusing to the rules."

But BTS weren't the only artists to be given the red flag; iKON's Bobby and 2PM's Junho were also deemed unfit to perform for various reasons. Bobby's new song "Up" was banned due to its violent language and lyrics. Junho had it worse as he was penalized for a total of three songs.

"Nobody Else" and "Wow" were also deemed inappropriate because of inappropriate language, and "Run to You" was banned because of mentioning many specific brands by name. What do you think of KBS' strict broadcasting rules on some of our favorite artists?
