Samuel Kims debut song Sixteen will not be broadcast on KBS because of a copyright infringement in the lyrics.
On July 26, KBS released the results of their month-long review of new songs for broadcasting approval. Out of 266 songs reviewed, eight were deemed unfit for broadcast.
Samuel Kims title song Sixteen, from his upcoming debut mini album of the same name, was included on this list. KBS explained the rejection of the song by citing the inclusion of Instagram in the lyrics. Additionally, another one of his songs included on the mini album, 123, was also flagged due to its mention of the car brand Ferrari. His representatives stated that they planned to resubmit the song for consideration after modifying the lyrics.
Jay Parks and N.Flyings newest releases were also included on KBSs list of songs unfit for broadcast.
Jay Parks song Yacht was flagged by KBS due to the inclusion of brand names and drug references in his lyrics. The song includes a line sung in English that says, Youre my dope Im so high.
N.Flying was cited for both R U Ready and Disorganized, which were set to be included on the bands new upcoming album. According to KBS, these songs contained slang and curse words that would be inappropriate for broadcasting.
Meanwhile, Samuel Kim will be making his solo debut on August 2.
