Rainbow’s ab dance banned from public broadcast

The “ab dance” from girl group Rainbow has received a warning from broadcast companies for its sexually suggestive nature.

With the promotion of their new title track, “A”, Rainbow has showed off a new “ab dance” along with their performance in which the members slowly lift up their shirts to expose their stomach. Their choreography recently received a warning for its sexual nature from broadcast companies.

Rainbow’s agency spoke with Star News on the 8th and revealed, “We are no longer allowed to show this choreography on broadcasts. We will be making the appropriate changes.”

The banning of Rainbow’s choreography shows the recent stricter standards that are being placed by broadcast companies. Frequent checks and criticisms are being made about girl group outfits and any sexually suggestive material.

Representatives of SBS Inkigayo have been contacting agencies of girl groups and requesting that they limit excessive exposure.

Netizens left comments such as “Why is it okay for boys to rip shirts off? Don’t let male idols wear wife beaters as well then,” “They’ve been broadcast this whole time, why all of a sudden?” and “But that’s the reason I’ve been watching music programs lately...”

MC Mong has "given up" on Dalmatian + his letter to their fans before debut

 News-EN Reporter Lee Uhn Hyuk

As the producer of the new idol group, MC Mong (real name Shin Dong Hyun), has raised a white flag in surrender to the uncontrollable mischievous Dalmatians.

On the 7th, the first airing of M.Net's "Dalmatian's Manager Goes on Strike" will reveal deep meaningful stories about how MC Mong has "given up" on Dalmatian.

MC Mong has provided Dalmatian with an outdoor terrace in addition to their expensively furnished 5-star accommodation, and has even served meat dishes everyday. However, due to Dalmatian's out of control nature, MC Mong decided to harden his heart and gave up the role of being Dalmatian's producer, let alone their manager.

Consisting of 6 members, Dalmtian has recklessly surged forward with their motto "Let's create our own path our own way!", going against all common sense public relations practices, and has plunged into their own method of PR.

As their first mission, they decided to personally hand a flower to AV star, Aoi Sora, who has recently visited Korea, in order to create a topic for discussion. When Aoi Sora arrived at the airport, they bum-rushed her like a human-bomb. They even ended up wrestling aggressively with Aoi Sora's bodyguards who sensed that something was wrong.

This day, Aoi Sora has ignored the disapproval of her bodyguards, and although Dalmatian's aggressive/scary bum-rush surprised her, she has shown interest in Dalmatian by asking "Who is Dalmatian" through her personal Twitter.
