KBS recently ruled some of rapper Mad Clown and singer Eddy Kim’s songs unfit for broadcast.
Mad Clown’s “Gum,” “Kkeng Cost,” and “Stalker,” and Eddy Kim’s “Slow Dance” were banned.
Mad Clown’s “Gum” was banned because the lyrics include the brand name ‘Mercedes,’ and “Kkeng Cost” because the title and lyrics include the word ‘kkeng cost,’ a slang expression referring to someone overplaying an injury for money. His song “Stalker” was banned for its slew of heavy profanity, both in Korean and English.
The ruling for Mad Clown’s “The Scent of Skin” was temporarily postponed due to the absence of one of the judges. That leaves one song from Mad Clown’s new mini album that is currently allowed on KBS: his title track “Without You” featuring Hyorin

There is a major upset on top of the chart this week. Veteran male soloist Lim Chang Jung’s “Ordinary Song” is anything but ordinary as it moves up 20 big spots and leaps over many top idol artists to No. 1 this week. “Ordinary Song” just edged out last week’s No. 1 2NE1’s “Come Back Home” by four points. Congratulations to him.
Lim started his singing career in 1995, and reached a peak in the early 2000′s. Nearly all his album title songs reached No. 1 on the chart back then. He abruptly quit singing after releasing his 10th album in 2003 to focus on his acting career. In 2009 Lim came back to the music scene and released his 11th album. He regained a lot of popularity last year with the song “About Me.”
“Ordinary Song” is the title track of Lim Chang Jung’s 12th album, his first full length album in nearly five years
