MOGEF bans songs by Dal Shabet, Miryo, Dynamic duo and more

The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family (MOGEF) is back again with another round of bans.

According to a report released on April 27th, the MOGEF has gone ahead and banned the music videos for Dal Shabet‘s “Hit U” and Miryo‘s “Dirty” for their use of violence, sexual imagery, and slang. Buga Kingz‘s “Don’t Go” was also banned for the use of violence.

Banned songs include Dynamic Duo‘s “Misunderstanding” and “Innocent Prisoner” for suggesting unwholesome dating and slang, while Dok2‘s “Stop Right There” was criticized for sexually suggestive expressions.

The ban on After School‘s “Funky Man” music video was actually lifted when the MOGEF initially banned the music video for sexually suggestive expressions, along with Orange Caramel‘s “Bangkok City“.

As reported previously, albums that include banned songs cannot be sold to minors, nor can they be planned on air before 10 p.m.
