Action taken against Kpop girl groups with overly sexy dances and outfits

23 February 2014 / 2 years 8 months ago

After a noisy start to the year with many controversies arising due to strong sexual concepts for the many girl groups that returned in January and February, the Korean Communications Standards Comission (KCSC) finally took some action.

It has been reported that the KCSC recently summoned the staff members of SBS‘ “Inkigayo,” KBS‘ “Music Bank” and MBC‘s “Show! Music Core” for a meeting.

According to Soompi, the issue of matter was in the sexy concepts for the many different girl groups such as Dal Shabet, Girl’s Day, AOA, Rainbow, Stellar and more.

The KCSC gave their stance on the issue of showing excess skin on broadcast and discussed future plans on how each of the music programs will address this matter.

The music programs have been inspecting each group, sometimes asking groups to change their outfits or choreography or even banning some groups from broadcast in the past.

The KCSC has strongly emphasized that the girl groups’ level of exposure is too much and that tighter regulations and restrictions need to be made.

Some have been saying that it is too late as many of those previously mentioned girl groups are wrapping up their promotions. However, it might be a stepping stone to prevent controversies from arising in the future.

Meanwhile, Stellar’s comeback stirred up the most recent controversy for their overly sexual marketing tactics.
