It happens again. Korea Broadcasting System (KBS) has again banned BTS songs from broadcasting on their network. This time, KBS banned one of the primary songs from BTS Jimin solo album, FACE. And it was the one of which BTS RM had participated in the composing process. So, which song did they ban and why did KBS deem the song to be unfit for broadcast? Here’s a complete discussion for you.
KBS Banned One of Primary Songs from BTS Jimin Solo Album, FACE
Korea Broadcasting System, commonly known as KBS, is one of the oldest and largest broadcasting networks in South Korea. As the nation’s primary broadcasting system, KBS has been extremely famous for its strictness and persistence in applying rules in the South Korean entertainment industry.
In the previous discussions, we have seen how KBS carry out its policy without mercy against South Korean artists. The broadcasting network had previously banned 6 South Korean artists, prohibiting their appearance on any of its programs due to various scandals and controversies.
KBS has also banned songs of prominent South Korean artists, including BTS and BLACKPINK, multiple times before due to various reasons.
This time, the broadcasting police is back with more action. With the recent release of BTS Jimin solo album FACE, KBS has banned one of the primary songs and deemed them unfit for broadcast.
Which Songs and WHY?
So, which songs from BTS Jimin solo album KBS banned? And what are the reasons?
Xports News reported on March 22 that KBS received 3 songs from BTS Jimin solo album, FACE, for an official review. The three songs submitted to KBS were: Face-off, Like Crazy, and Alone.
The result of the careful deliberation and review revealed that KBS banned one of these primary songs from BTS Jimin solos album: Face-off. According to the report, KBS banned Face-off because it contains lyrics with negative slang, curse words, and inappropriate expressions.
It is truly unfortunate because Face-off was the primary song in which Jimin had personally participated in the production process. It was also the first track on BTS Jimin solo album, and one of the amazing songs that BTS RM composed for Jimin.
While it is indeed unfortunate that KBS has once again banned BTS songs from broadcasting on their network, you can still enjoy listening to Jimin’s angelic voice through various music platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music.
Therefore, prepare yourself for BTS Jimin solo album release on March 24! Meanwhile, let’s rewatch Jimin’s amazing performance in his dance practice footage of Set Me Free Pt.2 and enjoy its secret facts!
