Knock Out banned on KBS, SBS & MBC



GD&TOP’s third title track, “Knock Out“, has been banned from all three public broadcasting networks.

KBS, MBC, and SBS stated that the reason for the ban was because the title and lyrics used slang, which they believed would damage the national psyche. The song itself has been popular on music charts, and news of the song’s ban quickly became a controversy amongst fans and netizens alike. The majority are of the belief that the ban is “ridiculous and out of line.”

One netizen commented, “TV dramas are allowed to show adultery, violence, swears, and even sexual abuse. I cannot understand why they would say that the expressions used in ‘Knock Out’ is a problem.”

Representatives of YG Entertainment commented, “The song has already been released to the public, and we cannot edit the title or the song just because the public broadcast networks ban it. We won’t be editing anything that damages the original meaning of the song.”

G-Dragon had previously revealed that he drew inspiration for the song’s Korean title, ‘Bbeokigayo,’ from the MBC drama, “My Name is Kim Sam Soon“, since it was an expression used by the leading character.

GD&TOP has decided to jump over their triple track promotion by promoting an additional two songs, making it a total of five tracks they will be promoting this cycle.
