Hwayobi's Music Video Banned from KBS

2009/02/12 | 492 views | Permalink | Source

Ballad diva Hwayobi's music video for her new release, "Half", was ruled inappropriate for broadcasting by the KBS review board, said the musician's agency on Thursday.

Her representative said that the decision was rather unexpected, because all the questionable scenes were edited out. The music video supposedly contained some nudity and kissing scenes, which were cut out voluntarily prior to the review. The agency said it took special care to edit the video for public viewing, because KBS has already banned the music video of Seungri's "Strong Baby" from public waves. KBS officials said that the music video's overall ambience was the issue, not specific scenes. Video will be edited again and submitted for another round of ruling by KBS. Korea's other two main TV stations, MBC and SBS, had given an okay to the same video.

Meanwhile, Hwayobi's new title song, "Half", was opened to the public on February 5. It is now steadily climbing up the music charts.
