T-ara's Lovey Dovey MV BANNED due to violence, criminal acts, harmful businesses, suicide, and drugs



Korea’s government has deemed T-ara’s music video as harmful.

On March 30, according to Korea′s Ministry of Public Administration and Security, the Commission on Youth Protection, under the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family (MOGEF), ruled T-ara’s music video for their hit song Lovey-Dovey as harmful to underage youths.

At issue were the music video’s scenes involving violence, criminal acts, suicide, harmful businesses and harmful drugs.

In these cases where such a judgment is laid, the album containing the song in question must clearly be marked as restricted to minors and be barred from being sold to those under 19 years of age.

If the decision is not followed, the producing company, distribution company and seller may all be slapped with fines. No word yet from T-ara’s agency if they will appeal the ruling.

Uh..? Considering they're not even promoting this any more i'm sure this isn't going to hurt anyone. So in other words, not pressed.

Seriously though? Gender Equality, and Family under one...I fucking can't.

If the issue is with the video, what's the relation to the song/album being restricted?

The video is basically a short thriller so I don't necessarily see the problem with it receiving a rating.

Pretty sure they're banning the drama version not the thriller version. Or both :o But all the things listed were from the drama version.

"T-ara's Lovey Dovey MV BANNED due to violence, criminal acts, harmful businesses, suicide, and drugs"

And let's be honest, anyone who didn't see this coming...
didn't a BEAST song get banned just for mentioning alcohol?

On Rainy Days .... but Cube sued and won so the ban was lifted!
ashiva 3rd-Apr-2012 05:38 pm (UTC)
Huh? Did they find something from the lyrics too since usually they don't ban the album (unless it contains MV) even if they ban the MV.
