Mario's 'Damage' (ft. ☆Spica's☆ Boa) ruled unfit for broadcast

Mario’s “Damage,” the rapper’s first song in two years, has been ruled unfit for broadcast by KBS.

KBS said, “In the lyrics, ‘Like a retard, I miss you after time has passed’ could potentially have a negative psychological effect on the disabled, so we ruled the song unfit.”

The song, released on April 29, was composed by Kim Chang Rak, and tells the story of a man who regrets letting someone go well after the fact. Mario’s unique voice is well-matched by the talented vocal from girl group Spica, Kim Boa.

In the KBS rulings for the last week of April, out of 122 songs, 116 passed and six were ruled unfit for broadcast.



[lyrics]I’m doing this because I think I will die if you’re not here

My confession to you after grabbing you as you were turning away
It was a little childish but I asked to spend our futures together
I thought we would last forever back then
Avoiding trouble by saying I love you
Giving excuses of being busy when it got lazy
Trying to be understanding due to the familiarity
Pretending to be a victim whenever a difficult situation came along

Our replies became just as short as our shortened phone conversations
Even when you cried because there were no answers after fighting all night, I was numb
From some point, we were upset with each other
Even when we were next to each other, we didn’t face each other
Frustrated, I put an end to the love that I started
The words of breaking up that I spit out of anger are now chaining my ankles
Time passes and like an idiot, I’m missing you

I said it was over and pretended to be cool with a smile
I thought I would be okay after time passed
But why am I the one who’s hurting?
You’re the one who shed tears over the last goodbye
But why am I the one who’s hurting?

After you left, damage
At first, it was good without you, my days were comfortable
After you left, damage
I didn’t know I’d be like this, I thought I did the right thing

From some point, my laughter turned into sighs
When you started picking up my calls with an annoyed voice
I couldn’t say anything as tears welled up at your cold voice
Then you got annoyed that I was crying again
Even our fights grew strengthless at some point
And the reason for us to meet was just out of a pointless sense of obligation

An emotional tug-of-war
A dangerous tightrope walking
It always repeats, me getting angry, you not saying anything

As a result of our fights, I tried to say something a bit harsher than before
Foreshadowing our breakup
The only thing that builds up is unhappiness, I feel your anxiety
As I see you like that, the pressure increases
Yeah, I was so young back then
My young love lacked so much
My lacking love hurt you (it made you leave)
Now I’m asking you to come back, as I sell my longing for you

I said it was over and pretended to be cool with a smile
I thought I would be okay after time passed
But why am I the one who’s hurting?
You’re the one who shed tears over the last goodbye
But why am I the one who’s hurting?

After you left, damage
At first, it was good without you, my days were comfortable
After you left, damage
I didn’t know I’d be like this, I thought I did the right thing

Thank you, thank you for being bad till the end
Thank you for being pathetic
Because you made the memories of me loving
Someone like you, someone so bad like you
Go away

After you left, damage
At first, it was good without you, my days were comfortable
After you left, damage
I didn’t know I’d be like this, I thought I did the right thing


note: that line in hangul is "병신처럼 시간이 지나 너를 그리워 하네"; popgasa translated "병신" as "idiot" but it means "retard/cripple". I believe Mario used it as a metaphor and not as a derogatory term nor was he being ableist, but as one of my friends pointed out, "with the sewol ferry accident hanging overhead, disability is probably more of a sensitive topic than it would be any other time". SBS also banned it, and Mario's not changing the lyrics so I doubt we'll see this performed live when music shows resume. pity because I would've loved to see Boa on stage...

High possibility of EXO to comeback with "Overdose" next week



EXO may finally be coming back next week with their long awaited “Overdose”.

Many fans had been waiting for EXO’s comeback with “Overdose” on the 21st of April, however due to the sudden tragedy of the Sewol ferry capsizing with 476 passengers on board, most of them high school students, their comeback had to be delayed for a long time as the situation got worse and death tolls increased.

Its been 84 Years since Op's Done a Vixx Post: Get Beauty Like Vixx



It really has been a while since we've had any thing vixx news related, but anyway, I really like this show (Get It Beauty) and I watch some of the old clips of it on youtube. I wish there were groups of subbers that would sub some of the fashion and beauty shows from SK, those are really interesting. I also watch Get It Style, just wish it were sub as well and that the whole episodes would be put on onstyle youtube channel. And for anyone wondering who the male that are getting the make-up done they are the group Speed.
