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.

Wow, MOGEF, you're so speedy and responsive! Right on task, aren't you?

My thoughts on this: The Korean Ministry that banned this had grounds to do so.. they were right. Even though I'm not a T-ara fan, I'm glad this only happened now because if it had happened during the promotion period it would have been really sad for the girls, considering they worked their butts off for this MV. At least they had time to show the fruits of their labor (despite the message the video conveys--after all they're not the one to blame for it).

I dislike censorship, but tbh, this is no great loss. That mv was a big ol' narrative mess.
