Blackpink’s new music video Kill This Love banned from TV after Rose is seen driving without a seat belt
According to an article of South China Morning Post, South Korean media reports said television station KBS banned the K-pop girl band’s new video for violating the country’s Road Traffic Act. Photo cards of Blackpink members with bruised faces also angered fans as they looked to have glorified physical abuse
Blackpink (Hangul: 블랙핑크; stylized as BLACKPINK or BLΛƆKPIИK) is a South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment, consisting of four members: Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa.
The rising K-pop girl band have landed in hot water over the music video for their recent worldwide hit Kill This Love as well as controversial photos released alongside their new album.
South China Morning Post also added that KBS did not explain why it had imposed the ban, but the reports pointed out that band member Rose was seen driving without wearing a seat belt. The music videos for Park Bom’s 4:44, Kim Donghan’s Focus and Jo Jung-min’s Ready Q have also been banned by KBS.
Meanwhile, photos cards of the Blackpink members with bruised faces issued with the “Kill This Love” album have sparked a debate among fans over whether they glorify physical abuse or conversely raise awareness about the issue. Several tweets about the photos also questioned whether any form of abuse should be used for “aesthetic” purposes.
Regarding the controversy, songwriter Bekuh Boom, who helped compose the album, expressed her opinion on Instagram. “It’s unfortunate that people are trying to turn the song and it’s meaning into something negative… It was not written about domestic abuse, however, there are many forms of abuse in relationships and if you are a person that has experienced any of them I hope that this song empowers you and touches your heart.”
