Korea’s largest broadcasting station, KBS is demanding that the lyrics for Seungri’s first solo effort, “Strong Baby” be changed if he wants to perform on their music programs. Specifically, they find the word, “crack” as inappropriate. And ajusshis at KBS want the word changed to “clap,” which in English can mean one of two things: the verb to “clap” or a venereal disease. And if the pronunciation is bad, then the word “clap” can sound like “crab” which again can mean one of 2 things: the delicious crustacean or another std (which is not delicious). Or worse still, a slight mis-pronunciation can turn the word into “crap” again means 1 of 2 things, a strong expression akin to “sh*t” or a slang for the #2 deed.

So we would like to suggest to KBS to just keep the word “crack.” Besides, Seungri has already performed the G-dragon written song on MBC and SBS.

What’s the big deal?

lol didn't they want to change "crack" b/c they thought it refered to the drug?? xD
at least "clap" isnt as bad as when they made DBSK change "under my skin" to "under my sky"... that didnt even make sense :T

as i said on another website about the whole changing of the words...well ill just cut and paste cause i summed it up pretty good.


ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!?! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!! THIS IS SERIOUS FREAKING CRAZY!! WHY THE HELL SHOULD THEY CHANGE THE SONG JUST BEACUSE THEY SAY CRACK?!?!? Not even talking about fans, but to me this isnt right to Seungri. I feel that because there is so much censoring going on, that it is limiting the capabilities of musicians and lyricists. I mean now everyone is going to be writing songs and being paranoid if they can even go and perform them on certain shows. I think this is a serious problem and really it IS going to affect music as we know it.

Now its not fair to the musicians and performers, but it is also not fair to the fans. The people who are going to watch a show because of a performer, are watching it for the performer. More likely than not they have already heard the original song. Now if they didnt like it, then they wouldnt tune in. So really you are just pissing off the fans.

KBS GET THE STICK OUT OF YOUR ASS!! YG I am very disappointed with how the situation has been handled.

okay. this is stupid. First, it's DBSK's 'Mirotic' and Rain's 'Rainism'. Now they decide to pick on 'Strong Baby'.

'Crack' fits the song. D:

what i can't stop laughing about is that out of all the things the song is
talking about, KBS decides to pick on the 'crack crack' part. wow.
random much, KBS?

ridiculous yes, but at least it's just for when Seungri performs on KBS.
it's not like they had to go back and re-release the song in the "clean" version.

mirotic was "Under My Skin" to "understand my sky" changed, now they want the "I Got You" to "I chose you" convert and now "crack". why they don´t write the lyrics for the stars, too.

ya u r totally right, but i guess US culture n asia is different lol...even in my country,,they will ban anything that they think will bring harm too teenager.. just have to accept that asia is asia ..that's all..my personal opinion.."crack" is nothing ..it just a word..i thought the song is banned because of MV but its turn out because of CRACK...what a crap!!...i rather listen to "quack" in stead of "clap".
