G-Dragon and TOP recently released their latest music video for their single, “Knock Out”, just a little over a day ago. Now it has been confirmed that the boys will not be able to perform their newest song on the major Korean broadcast television networks KBS, MBC, and SBS. The reasoning was that the song’s lyrics contained slang that could hurt the Korean citizens’ psyche. Some of the American slang words in the song include “swag” and “bling”. YG has already come out saying that would not change the title of the song as a result of this banning, and furthermore, would not want to alter the original meaning of the song. The song’s title comes from the catchphrase used by the leading character in the MBC drama “My Name is Kim Sam Soon”.  Netizens have argued how television dramas feature much worse ideas, such as violence and curse words in the shows. How do you feel about this ban? Do you think the networks are wrong in this case?
