Okay, I don't know much about Korean pop singers, but this is ridiculous. Apparently, this song called "Mirotic" by a band called DBSK is being considered "harmful and detrimental" to youths in Korea. The song is being banned from Korean tv or radio play before 10 PM, and the album will have stickers indicating that it's "unsuitable for people under 19 years old". On top of that, they will have to edit the lyrics to this song during live performances.

Want to know just how "inappropriate" these lyrics are? See for yourself (translation by Yumeko):


주문 (MIROTIC)

From the start, you were sweet and simply attracted to me
You'd stay always like that, you said when you first walked up to me
All the possibilities opened up Oh~

What is love? What! right now it is Red Ocean
I'm breaking my rules again. You know it's getting boring?
You do get hurt a little bit, it's all right Oh~

You want me, you've fallen for me, you're crazy for me
You can't break out, I got you~ Under my skin
You want me, you've fallen for me, you're crazy for me
You are my slave, I got you~ Under my skin

It nests in your head, the sharp stare
It's not me, my unmoving Chrome heart
This is your choice Oh~

Flowing through your veins running through you are millions of my Crystal
Finally, the end of the transformation
This must be love? Oh~

*Repeat

With a single kiss~ the day revitalizing~ a powerful pull
The second kiss, it sent a blow to your heart and it feels hot
Yeah~ I have you! You know you got it!
Yeah~ Come on! Come on! I got you- Under my skin

In your dreams i order you under my magic spell
You want to do it again, I got you~Under my skin
My devils ride, you now don't have a place to breathe
Let's have fun now that i have you~ Under my skin

*You want me, you've fallen for me, you're crazy for me
You can't break out, I got you~ Under my skin
You want me, you've fallen for me, you're crazy for me
You are my slave, I got you~ Under my skin


So while some of the lines may be a tiiiiny bit suggestive (and honestly a bit silly XD"), I do NOT think this song warrants such strict censorship. Not to mention I'm 100% for freedom of speech/expression and completely against censorship anyway. XD" But bias aside, this situation is utterly retarded. @_@

Speaking of Korean pop stars, has anyone else seen these epic pieces of brilliance? XDXD
