Alleged Quran Verse Removed In New CL 'MTBD' Video On 2NE1 YouTube Channel: Korea Muslim Federation Demands Formal YG Apology

Alleged Quran Verse Removed In New CL 'MTBD' Video On 2NE1 YouTube Channel: Korea Muslim Federation Demands Formal YG Apology

Alleged Quran Verse Removed In New CL 'MTBD' Video On 2NE1 YouTube Channel: Korea Muslim Federation Demands Formal YG Apology (Photo : Twitter) As the controversy surrounding 2NE1 leader CL"s solo song "MTBD" continues, a new video has been uploaded with the alleged Quran verse removed.

For those who are not aware, some fans (Muslim or otherwise) have noticed a background portion of CL"s "MTBD" that sound similar a Quran verse, and a lot of backlash and media attention has been cast over the song.

In particular, a YouTube video uploaded on the official 2NE1 channel showing a live performance of "MTBD" has drawn heavy attention because observers could hear the alleged Quran verse very distinctly.

"Muslims find this song to be a severe insult and are demanding for the agency to take action including quickly removing it or editing the entire song, and apologizing to Muslims," says a formal complaint from the Korea Muslim Federation.

"In the case that they don"t comply to the demand, we will take action with the Muslims around the world who find this to be a serious matter."

Since the eruption of alleged death threats and backlash, the "MTBD" live performance video has been removed and a new video with altered background music has been uploaded.

"I"m glad that YG decided to remove the offensive part," writes Victoria Quinn on YouTube.

"People shouldn"t overreact and call Muslism oversensitive because of this. If you aren"t Muslim (which I also am not) you have no right to dictate what is and what isn"t offensive to them. The same goes for any race or religion for that matter."

This, however, does not indicate whether the newly released "Crush" album will be re-released due to the controversy, or if the release will remain as is with the unaltered "MTBD" track.

'Harlem Shake' Video Gets Millions of YouTube Views, Thousands Film Themselves Doing 'The Harlem Shake' [VIDEO]

'Harlem Shake' Video Gets Millions of YouTube Views, Thousands Film Themselves Doing 'The Harlem Shake' [VIDEO]

Thousands of people are making YouTube dance videos to the song "The Harlem Shake, "

'Harlem Shake' Video Gets Millions of YouTube Views, Thousands Film Themselves Doing 'The Harlem Shake' [VIDEO] The original Harlem Shake video was shot in a dorm room.Thousands of amateur dance videos to the song "The Harlem Shake" by Brooklyn trap and bass artist and producer Baauer have flooded YouTube in the last two weeks, with some clips receiving millions of views.

As of 10 a.m. Friday morning, over 5,000 "Harlem Shake" videos had been posted to the website in the last 12 hours.

The original 31-second video for the song, entitled "The Harlem Shake v1 (TSCS Original)" earned nearly 8 million views since YouTube user TheSunnyCoastSkate posted the dorm room dance video on February 2.

An early copycat version by user hiimrawn called "Harlem Shake v3 (office version)" that takes place in, you guessed it, an office, has earned over 10 million YouTube views. That video is also 31 seconds long.

The "Harlem Shake" video has even inspired copycat videos from such diverse fans as the Norwegian Army, "The Today Show" hosts and Jon Stewart. There is also a popular internet MEME.

But how do you do the Harlem Shake?

It's not really a dance, well there was a dance with the same name that Sisqo started in Harlem in the 1980s, but that has nothing to do with this "Harlem Shake."

To make your own "Harlem Shake" video, you need one friend to wear a mask and dance like no one's watching for 15 seconds, while you and the rest of your friends pretend not to notice.

When you hear the phrase "do the Harlem Shake," everybody dances.

Think the finale of "Napoleon Dynamite" or that little girl's moves from "Little Miss Sunshine."

You just did "The Harlem Shake."

Check out the dorm room video that started it all: the original "Harlem Shake" YouTube clip:

Trailer for Ha Ji Won's Ping Pong Film Korea

Ha Ji Won’s upcoming ping pong film “Korea” released a trailer. “Korea” is about the 1991 World Ping Pong Championship and the first North-South Korean team. In the film Ha Ji Won portrays the 1991 World Ping Pong Championship gold medalist Hyun Jung Hwa while Bae Doo Na portrays the North Korean teammate Lee Boon Hee. Ha Ji Won actually received private lessons from Hyun Jung Hwa in 2011. Hyun Jung Hwa is currently an executive member of the Korea Table Tennis Association.

Trailer for Ha Ji Won's Ping Pong Film Korea

The movie trailer for “Korea” is unique because it does not focus so much on the movie but on the actual ping pong player Hyun Jung Hwa.

Hyun Jung Hwa says in the beginning of the trailer “I was 22 in Korean age. Lee Boon Hee was one year older than me. Our team was made up of college age athletes. We were very young but we felt a lot of responsibility. We had to train hard and do our best.”

She continues “Although we spent 46 days together, the only memories I have is training. I felt like I should have tried to be closer, and I should have been better to her. I regret not being able to do those things.”

The trailer ends with clips of Ha Ji Won and Bae Doo Na playing ping pong.
