The ladies of KARA recently made their comeback with Pandora, and released their MV on August 21st. Coming back with a more sensual and mature image, their music video features a catchy melody and sexy choreography. However, their choreography seems to be a bit too sexy for KBS‘ Music Bank.
On August 23rd, a representative for Music Bank stated, “If we feel the need, we will ask for either the clothes or the dance to be changed.”
In the music video, you can see the members of KARA in outfits featuring tight shorts and jackets. Parts of their choreography requires them to take off their jackets. The most controversial instance, is around the 1:27 mark of the video, where they turn around and remove their jackets, exposing their backs. At their comeback showcase on the 22nd, they were seen performing Pandora with nude colored shirts, but the color gives off an illusion of a backless outfit.
A representative for Music Bank continues, “We are more conservative than other broadcasting companies about the nature of clothes and dances, not just for KARA but for all groups. This is because of our broadcast is rated for those 15 years and older. And as much as this has become an issue, we will ask for changes to be made if we feel the dance pushes the limitations.”
“We will make our decision after seeing the choreography in person,” they concluded.
In the past, Rania, 4Minute, and Rainbow have been censored by Music Bank as well, due to provocative choreography.
