Music Bank tries to censor KARA

KARA may face some censorship by KBS ‘Music Bank‘.

With recent concerns about the sexual nature of of KARA’s new song, there may be another road block along the way for the group. On the 23rd, a representative of ‘Music Bank’ stated, “If we feel the need, we will ask for either the clothes or the dance to be changed.”

The girl group just recently released the MV for their new track, “Pandora“. However, one of their dance moves where they remove their jackets to reveal their backs had become a controversial. Their outfits were short and tight, comparable to a swimming suit, and the way they revealed the backs of their nude colored shirts gave off the illusion of a backless outfit.

The girls performed the choreography at their showcase on August 22nd. Though the outfits may seem innocent enough by themselves, there are a total of 3 instances where the girl group takes off their jackets during the song, and it may not be appropriate for their upcoming KBS2 ‘Music Bank’ comeback stage.

A representative at ‘Music Bank’ stated, “We are more conservative than other broadcasting companies about the nature of clothes and dances, not just for KARA but for all groups. This is because of our broadcast is rated for those 15 years and older. And as much as this has become an issue, we will ask for changes to be made if we feel [the dance] pushes the limitations.”

The rep continued, “We will make our decision after seeing the choreography in person.”

Music Bank is known to strictly regulate racier performances that are not actually based on the song, and even request outfit adjustments during rehearsals. In the past, 4minute and Rania were both asked to change their choreography because of moves that required the girls to spread their legs, and even KARA’s label mate Rainbow was once censored for their ‘bellybutton dance’.

But what do you think? Is KARA’s new dance too provocative? Or is it just an expression of their style?

since when showing your back is....I'm not going to ask because it's not worth it. it's Korea and that's enough.
the dance is freaking perfect in all levels and if they can't take the perfection Kara is, too bad for them but don't stop us from enjoying the awesomeness it is!

I got banned from an LJ community for arguing that showing your shoulders is not risque. There are whack people in the west who think so.

i don't see it as being any more provocative than half of the other groups, but whatever.

i think he should probably cease and desist but not b/c it's provocative...

Honestly, seeing Leeteuk or Eunhyuk half-naked in any disturbs me on all levels XD

I don't get Korea and their obsessive censorship.

Is showing your back going to turn all the kids watching into serial killers?
