BTS to Release Song Considered Too ‘Inappropriate’ for Broadcast
The Bangtan Boys — also known as the unstoppable South Korean squad, BTS — are ruffling some executive feathers.
According to a news report today (Feb. 8), "Outro: Wings," a song from the group's forthcoming Wings repackage, You Never Walk Alone, has been officially deemed unfit for broadcast by KBS.
The group's agency, Big Hit Entertainment, reportedly only submitted "Blood Sweat & Tears" and "21st Century Girl" for consideration upon the release of Wings last year. Still, the label "have decided not to edit the lyrics for reevaluation and that promotions for the new album will be centered on the title track," Soompi explains.
AllKPop reports that one of the lines causing the controversy — "Bastard, don't get scared" — was deemed unfit by the broadcasting station, plus "curses as well as vulgar slang." (Laughably tame by Western standards!)
No doubt, the "controversial" news will only make their loyal fans (the A.R.M.Y.) support the song even more.
Listen to the oh-so-scandalous "Wings: Interlude" below, ahead of the release of "Outro: Wings" on February 13 with You Never Walk Alone.
