South Korea: TV bans sexy music video

Korea_JayPark-videoKorean television has banned K-pop star Jay Park’s latest music video due to its sexual imagery, The Korea Times reported.

The video for Park’s lead single, ‘You Know,’ from his new album features Park dancing with fellow K-pop star HyunA. South Korean monitors gave the video a 19+ parental advisory rating.

Though K-pop has been on the rise for several years after the government lifted bans on music in its democratic turn, artists still have to contend with the government’s vague regulations in its censorship system.
