Eddy Kim’s newest track “Paldangdam” feat. Beenzino has been banned from MBC because of their inappropriate language. On February 26th, MBC stated that Eddy Kim’s newest track “Paldangdam” had some very inappropriate language in their lyrics. The word that triggered the MBC ban was the word “dam”.
The word “dam” in Korean means either river or ocean water, and it sounds like the word “damn” in English. MBC stated that Eddy Kim used the word “dam” in such a way that it carried the same meaning as the English word “damn”. The song is considered inappropriate to be aired on their station.
Eddy Kim may need to change his lyrics for the ban to be lifted, unfortunately. After having deleted the word “dam”, it seems that it will be difficult since its one of the most frequently used words in the song. It looks like Eddy Kim is faced with unexpected “dam” trouble.
