PSY - New Music Clip Banned by Korean TV Station
Since his hit single Gangnam Style, Korean singer PSY is well-known around the world. That means that his follow-up single Gentleman is similarly successful. The clicks on Youtube rise and the TV stations have good ratings with the airings of the official video for the song. In that clip, PSY makes a lot of practical jokes and that prompted the biggest South Korean TV station, KBS, to ban the music video from its schedule.
The reason for that can be found right at the beginning where PSY kicks away a traffic cone. KBS argues that they can't air the video because that would be similar to call for actions of disorderly conduct. The public could get motivated by that. Furthermore, a Korean politician complained about the library scene in which PSY plays pranks on visitors by waving his farts in their direction. The politician fears that the video could make such a behavior popular and cause libraries to become places in which silence is no longer secured, making learning there impossible.
PSY's management had little to say about the issue but made clear that the music video will not be altered in any way in order to make an airing on KSB possible.
