It’s been announced that promotions for “Bubble Pop“, the hit summer track from 4minute’s HyunA, have been concluded prematurely.
According to a notice issued on August 4th by the Korea Broadcasting and Communications Review Committee (KCC), HyunA’s choreography and outfits for “Bubble Pop” were deemed to be ‘too sexually suggestive’, both in its music video and stage performances.
In response, Cube Entertainment has decided to conclude HyunA’s performances, who was supposed to participate in this week’s recordings for KBS 2TV’s ‘Music Bank‘, MBC’s ‘Show! Music Core‘, andSBS’s ‘Inkigayo‘.
A representative from Cube Entertainment stated, “The KCC called the music show PDs to discuss whether it was possible to change HyunA’s choreography. However, it was too short of a notice. Also, considering how the dance itself is a major element of her performance, there would have been no point to altering it.”
HyunA’s music video for “Bubble Pop” has also come under fire. Although it’s become a sensation overseas, garnering over 10 million views on YouTube alone, the KCC has stated that the music video should no longer air, citing that it was too suggestive and stimulating for public broadcast.
Consequently, HyunA will now move onto her follow-up promotions for “Just Follow“.
