The songs that has been judged harmful by the Commission on Youth Protection is,

GD&TOP - "Intro," “Don’t Go Home” and “What Do You Want Me to Do?”
Lee Hyun - “Curse“
Beige - “I Can’t Drink“
Navi - “Today, I Am“
Seeya - “Heels” and “I Still Like You”
Dok2 - “21st Century Traveler,” “Hip Hop” and “I Won’t Lose.”

Various songs by Mighty Mouth and G-Masta were also criticized for their use of slang.

According to CYP these songs contain slangs and/or provocative lyrics.

    Korea is so strict with this kind of stuff T-T
    hehe~ I am actually listening to "Don't Go Home" right now.
    Yay!!! For owning the GD&TOP album...and being under 19 XD

    I can understand why they ban some stuff though...some music can get a little...graphic? I suppose you could say. They want to protect the integrity of their youth, it is understandable.

    I can kinda understand where they're coming from here, i've seen some of TOP's stuff... but they are going a BIT too far lol it's just music and compare it to American stuff and this is nothing. NOTHING.

    South Korea is not America (or Europe), fortunately! They're doing the right thing :)

    omg , why ?

  • Posted by asianobsessed · 107,487 Jpops · 171 shares · 5 years ago  

    They play worse stuff on the RADIO in the US. Seriously.. this is ridiculous.. I can understand having a age restriction, but 19? That's a little obsessive.

  • Posted by saranghaeReita1988 · 191 Jpops · 5 years ago  

    I agree, american music is MUCH worse. I don't see why they are saying they are harmful... I think they rock.... That's that.

  • Posted by nyappyxgoxmimi · 15,695 Jpops · 4 shares · 5 years ago  

    Oh come on, there is WAY worse American songs.
    I mean I even listen to them. Heehee. Sorry.
    These songs aren't all bad. I think it's sort of going overboard but ah well, there's nothing much we can do about it.
    Hopefully Korea loosens up a bit.
