this is dumb sure mirotic is meant to be sexy
but i dont think it should be banned i mean think about the US music industry
if they were suppose to ban any song with explicit meaning then most of all the songs in the US
would be all ban...god ppl need to take a chill pill or something
banning the song...i take a bet they arent banning any US songs that are playing around the world with
inappropriate meaning

MIROTIC Among Others Deemed Inappropriate for Youths
After judging that Rain’s Rainism was harmful and detrimental to youths last week, the Commission of Youth Protection has acted again by labelling DBSK’s Mirotic, Solbi’s Do It Do It, etc in the same category as Rainism. This has created an uproar once again in Korea which takes effect this week.

According to sources, the Commission of Youth Protection usually examines around 100 songs every month to see if they are harmful or detrimental to youths in Korea. But this is the first time that their scope is targeted specifically towards popular mainstream singers in Korea right now. In the last month, among the 110 songs that they have examined, 32 of them were Korean songs which was a new record in recent years. The reason for banning Mirotic was the same as Rainism in that part of the lyrics were inappropriate.

The ruling will come into effect from 4th December with the song being banned from playing on tv or radio before 10pm. The Mirotic album will have stickers affixed to them that indicates “unsuitable for people under 19 years old”. The song lyrics will have to be modified if they are going to perform this during concerts or events. Action will be taken if any of the above are flouted.

Although affected singers and their companies have expressed that they will adhere to the ruling, they can’t fathom the reasoning behind the ban.

Industry critics feel that this will only heap more misery on the already suffering music industry. And one wonders if the “19-only” stickers restricting the sale of affected albums will actually have any effect. DBSK for example are already done with promoting Mirotic and are actually in the midst of promoting their follow-up song Wrong Number. With album sales already exceeding 300,000, it also means that most of their fans have already gotten the album already.

A Disney-friendly Korean music industry in future? Hope not.

It isn't their fault the lyrics are like that! the Composer wrote it like that, Heck even Sarah Conner sings it with the exact same lyrics and all... Well at least we still can have our 'Mirotic' b/c of Japan, YAY for JAPAN!

there`s a diffirence between the 2 lyrics i think Sarah`s one was alot worse I guess Jp Dont Mind cause if they Do they would`ve banned the American Songs




thanks for the info but i gotta say i agree about Rainisim : its not Suitable for minors
i`m going to read the Mirotic translation w\o listening to the song so i can understand why they said Red Sea & Crystall mean .....
but it wont effect if they change the lyrics a bit hopefully they wont banned Epik high songs
But Solbi`s DO it Do it : the Title Gave me a reason for thinking that its inappropriate
