Big Bang is one of those Korean boy bands that I really like. There was even one time when Haru Haru was playing on my player for the nth time! I also liked their new album. I especially love their cover of Lee Moon Sae’s Sunset Glow (Red Sunset). It was also fun listening to Seung Ri’s Strong Baby — it was even featured on Perez Hilton’s blog.
I was reading asianfanatics earlier and D O L C E posted the following article:
Under the Commission of Youth Protection, Big Bang’s 2nd album ‘Remember’ has been labelled harmful for teenagers with the reason that the song ‘Strong Baby’ in the album contains inappropriate/suggestive lyrics.
From 6th March, Big Bang’s 2nd album ‘Remember’ will have the sticker ‘No Sales Allowed For Those Under 19′ labelled on the CD.
A YG Entertainment representative said, “We did not arrange for a new recording for a clean version of the supposed problematic song ‘Strong Baby’. We will just have to sell the CD with the sticker label on.”
As to whether this order will affect SeungRi’s solo activity, “This coming 1st March will be his last performance, hence we see that there shouldn’t be any hindrance to his solo activities.”
** some fans may find this sad, but its their rules and its part of their culture, so i think we have to respect this decision. the label doesn’t mean that you can not hear their songs, big bang still has a lot of other songs 😀
