In regards to the group JYJ’s song [Pierrot], which was banned by KBS citing the reason that it specifically attacks a particular person, KBS President said, “They may submit a request for a reexamination anytime.”

On the afternoon of the 4th, during a parliamentary inspection of the Committee for Culture, Sports, Tourism & Broadcasting Communication, Jun Byung Hun (Democratic Party), a member of the National Assembly, questioned KBS President Kim In Kyu and asked, “JYJ’s [Pierrot] is banned because the lyrics ‘PSM’ is targeted at a specific person. What is the standard of consideration?”

President Kim said, “According to the deliberation committee, the lyrics ‘PSM’ in JYJ’s [Pierrot] are problematic as it points to a specific person” and “Although JYJ’s side has said that ‘PSM’ stands for ‘Professional Success Music’, it doesn’t match when the lyrics are looked in their entirety.”

He also added, “JYJ may submit a request for a reexamination any time.”

To this, Congressman Jun asked in return, “Is KBS the spokesperson for Mr Lee Soo Man?” and “Why do you refuse to believe the person who wrote the song? Why do you have to interpret ‘PSM’ as referring to Mr Lee Soo Man?”President Kim said in replied, “The members of the deliberation committee judged that it is likened to that given name” and “I will request that the deliberation committee be more open to flexible interpretations.”

The other day, on 28 September, KBS announced the results for the review of JYJ’s album through their website and judged that the songs [Pierrot] and [Mission] were banned as they contained “lyrics that were personal attacks”.

KBS had explained that the song [Pierrot] resulted in being banned because it suggested “personal attacks to an individual” and that it showed a personal grudge towards a particular individual as the lyrics “‘P.S.M’ obviously represents ‘President, Lee Soo Man’”.
