KBS bans Akdong Musician’s ‘Galaxy’ song for indirectly promoting Samsung’s product?
After looking into the popular album, KBS concluded Akdong Musician’s Galaxy unfit to be played on broadcast.
On April 16, KBS revealed the newly banned songs, which included Akdong Musician’s Galaxy from its first album Play.
The reasoning was due to the word ‘galaxy’ being repeated a total of nine times. KBS said that the song could be misunderstood as a commercial song for Samsung’s smartphone Galaxy series.
The other songs on the album were deemed fine.

Akdong Musician heads over to Japan to film ‘Give Love’ Music Video!
The sibling duo AKDONG MUSICIAN (AKMU) who brought a sensation to the music world this spring is said to have left for Japan urgently in the morning of April 14. All the attention is on AKMU as no YG artists were scheduled to perform in Japan at the beginning of the week. So what was the reason for their departure?
According OSEN’s report, AKMU’s reason for going to Japan was to film the music video of “GIVE LOVE.” Keeping in mind YANG’s usual audacious promotional methods, this is nothing new. He is keeping the promise of letting the public choose the final title track, and immediately chose a foreign location for filming the music video.
It is unconventional and unprecedented to film all three title songs’ music videos in such a grand scale for a newly debuted artist. Considering that entertainment agencies invest hundreds of million won on one music video, once can assume the power of YG’s vigorous promotions.
This is also a proof of YANG’s affection for the duo. According to YG’s personnel, YANG personally came up with the idea to let the fans decide the final title songs, and also decided to send AKMU to Japan for music video filming.
