[NEWS] SM Entertainment Artists Barred from KBS Music Bank Indefinitely

BoA, DBSK, SHINee, etc. will not be appearing on KBS Music Bank indefinitely after SM Entertainment was served with a notice from KBS this month. This apparently was because of DBSK's no-show at KBS Gayo Daechuk last year. (2008)

DBSK was in Japan for the final 2 days of 2008 as they had to attend the TBS Japan Record Awards and the 59th Kohaku Uta Gassen 2008 respectively and thus couldn’t attend KBS and MBC gayo festivals. But in the process, there was a breakdown in communications between SM Entertainment and KBS resulting in Shinee, Super Junior, etc missing KBS Gayo Daechuk as well.

Competition was fierce to get singers to appear at the year-end gayo festivals for the 3 respective major broadcasters, SBS, KBS and MBC. KBS was probably incensed to see BoA and DBSK appearing at Festival S (SBS gayo festival) but not appearing at theirs. As a form of punishment, KBS has thus decided to prohibit SM artistes from appearing on Music Bank indefinitely.

The worst hit SM artists at the moment must be SNSD who made their comeback recently with their Gee mini-album. They were originally scheduled to make a grand comeback on Music Bank on 9th January. But it was shelved at the very last moment on 8th January and the girls had to make their comeback a day later instead on Music Core M! Countdown, leaving them with only Music Core and Inkigayo.

The ban was initially dismissed by SM Entertainment who said that the girls wanted more time to prepare and so their Music Bank comeback was delayed to 16th January. But it was strange that they would say that since it was only a day later before they would appear on Music Core. But fans didn’t make too much fuss over it since Shinee was on the 9th January episode of Music Bank. But after seeing SHINee and SNSD missing from the 16th January Music Bank line-up, the ban looks like it’s being enforced by KBS.

In an interview with a Music Bank PD, “Currently, SM Entertainment artistes are only barred from appearing on KBS Music Bank. It will not affect their apperrances on other shows on the KBS network. The ban is indefinite.”

There were also talks that TaeYeon of SNSD was actually considered by KBS to take over from the outgoing Seo In Young as the MC of Music Bank. But the ban effectively puts an end to that and announcer Park Eun Young will take over Seo In Young instead from today’s episode onwards.

Ooh~ this sucks..what the hell. -__-
Was KBS that mad the guys couldn't make it?
Hello! They had to be at another show in Japan.
Give them a break? Japan is basically their 2nd home.
Yet KBS goes and bans all SM artists.
That's hardly fair. =.=
Poor SM people...~
Although I personally do not like SNSD, this sucks for them as well.
Just when they're about to make a comeback, they're banned from appearing on
the show. Sad, eh?

[INFO] Korean Cassiopeian's Views on 'MIROTIC' Chinese Version

칩 대위창민 - Chinese is really ... ... very difficult. If it's Japanese, we are still able to hum along, but for Chinese, how are we going to sing it?! China people are really amazing ... ...

샤옹샤옹 - The lyrics is going to be banned again, it's even more powerful than Japan and Korea versions.

티 아라나 - They used English for the rap part ... ... The lyrics is very poetic, even though i have done lots of practices, i still unable to sing along, i wish to listen to the full version of the Chinese version ... ...

슈퍼리어 - I've read abit of it and why is it so funny? (PS: This fan had read the Chinese words in accordance with Korean.)

티오에쵸 - The rap part is all in English, but the lyrics is very meaningful ... ...촵 웃김 - Lyrics ... ... It totally give me a very deep impression ... ... If the boys are able to sing it openly like this in our country with this kind of lyrics, that would be great.

샤쵸롭한 촵호제 - Chinese version ... ... The pronunciation is very tough. The lyrics totally fits the intentions ... ... Will the lyrics being banned? Wow ... ... Please reveal it as soon as possible ... ... Chinese version is so amazing ... ... Extremely powerful ... ...

날라리YJ - It's so tough ... ... The pronunciation is full of passion, awwwww ... ... The notes are even more able to draw people ... ...

Spellbound - The rap is in English ... ... The lyrics is terrific ... ... It totally makes people obey unconditionally.

BADA - Ah ... ... It's really awesome.

씨앗 - Chinese lyric version ... ... Woo Wow ... ...

퍼 플리쉬 - So the pronunciation of "Na" is actually means "那(that)", i still thought that why are there so many "I" in the lyrics. (In Korean, "I" is pronunced as "NA")

설잎녹차 - Just as expected, the lyrics ... ...

쓰나 - The rap part seems to have the same meaning as Sara Corner's Under My Skin.

콩 깍지 - Chinese lyrics version, woo wow ... ... To compare ours with the Chinese lyrics, ours is so much weaker, if the boys are able to sing it openly in our country with such lyrics, that would be great, hehe.

촹촹하고화샤하게 - The Chinese lyrics is more able to emphasize on the bad boy feel.

완콩 - Chinese lyrics ... ... Absolutely mystical.

깜별 - Totally speechless ... ...

쵸 레로 - The lyrics for the rap part ... ... At first i still thought that it would be in Chinese, but it turn out to be in English.

Lell - Oh, the rap part is not in Chinese, the Chinese version really have the feel of Spell, when i first listen to it, nothing is more charm than this.

팔랑개비 - Compare with korean, the expression is even more undisguised. It totally give me the feeling that they are trying to smash the Youth Association up ... ...1

뿐짓동방 - It had expressed as if there is some spell on it, totally seems to have open sexual ... ...

쁘띠 - Let me conquer you ... ... Come on come on ... ...

JJ의이쁜이 - What a addictive lyrics ... ... When i saw "Hug" this word in the lyrics, it remind me of Hug Chinese version.

Yah...i love it. Love their responses. xD
Personally, I still love the korean version better but this has
a correct feeling to it. The japanese one to me was a little weird. x]
This just totally shows that the guys don't give a crap about
the Youth Committee in Korea. XD They're still using 'under my skin~'
which sounds so much better than freaking...'under my sky'.
Wth kinda line is that for lyrics? It doesn't even make sense with the song.
Could've at least used 'under my spell'? -__-
People sometimes just piss me off for the most stupid reasons. lol
don't mind my views on things. x]
Well, dbsk, you guys keep doing what you're doing and cassi will support.
I can guarantee you that. ♥

[NEWS] DBSK's 4th Album, 'MIROTIC' Breaks Through the Half-A-Million Mark

DBSK//TVXQ 4th album MIROTIC through the half-million mark.
Star News Article January 8, 2009 08:52

[MTStarNews] The Youth Protection Committee classified DBSK's 4th album MIROTIC as harmful for the youth, but 100 days after the said album was released it has already reached 500,000 sales.

On the 8th, DBSK's agency SMEntertainment said, "Since DBSK's MIROTIC album was released September 26 last year until January 6 it has been sold online 167,697 copies, from off-line 335,140 copies amounting to after 103 days a total of 502,837 copies" they revealed.

This 2008 (the MIROTIC) album is among the all-time record-high sold. Not since Kim Gu Mo's 2003 8th album (Hestory) of 520,000copies has there ever been another artist that sold over 500,000.

DBSK's album November last year was branded as having harmful lyrics by the Youth Protection Committee, but as if to mock the decision, album sales are increasing more and the phenomenon finally led through the breakthrough of the half a million mark.

Meanwhile, DBSK is scheduled to have the 3-day (February 20-22), "TVXQ THE 3rd ASIA TOUR CONCERT-MIROTIC" at the Seoul Olympic Gymnastics Stadium.
