Big Bang’s GD&TOP were hit with another ban, this time from MBC for their track, “Don’t Go Home“. The broadcasting network blacklisted the song on January 5th under the reason that the song was ‘unfit for public broadcast.’

This is the second ban this week for the duo, as it follows the ban of “Knock Out” from all three public broadcasting networks.

YG Entertainment representatives spoke with Star News and revealed, “We expected ‘Knock Out’ to be banned from the three networks, so we will be re-submitting the songs, but MBC banning ‘Don’t Go Home’ has come as a bit of a surprise to us.

They continued, “We’ve retorted that there is nothing wrong with the song, as it was even accepted by KBS and SBS. As much as it is hard to understand why MBC would find it unfit for broadcast, we believe that MBC has their own reasons, so we will respectfully re-submit it for an evaluation.”
When asked why they believed the song was banned, they answered, “We feel that T.O.P’s rap was a part of the problem, but we’d like for them to interpret the lyrics as is.  When we re-submit the song, we will not be editing any of the lyrics.”

T.O.P’s lyrics state:
I don’t like awkward settings
Why is the sound of the clock ticking so loud?
All I can hear is the sound of swallowing spit
Look baby, all I want is to greet the morning with you
A secret party for just us two before the night comes to an end
But you’re like Cinderella, you try to go home when the clock hits 12
Being alone makes the night so long
Call in to your parents, don’t try to act tough
S.O.S, advancing seems so far
Oh! wait a minute, why am I like this?
Am I drunk, I’m so dizzy, I’m falling asleep
.”

YG Entertainment’s fandom has been suffering internal troubles due to a fan division between Big Bang and 2NE1 fans.

Many Big Bang fans have recently been voicing their disappointment due to their belief that YG’s head man, Yang Hyun Suk, is “favoring 2NE1” over Big Bang. The internal conflict originated from when YG did not approve of and boycotted the selection process of the ‘Best Popular Song‘ award at the KBS ‘2010 Music Festival’ on December 30th, which resulted in GD&TOP being unable to perform on KBS2′s ‘Music Bank.’

On various community sites for Big Bang, fans have voiced out, “2NE1, a group that underwent the most active promotions last year out of YG artists, didn’t have the confidence to win the ‘Best Popular Song’ award, which is why they decided to not attend the show, no? This only resulted in G-Dragon and T.O.P being burdened by the resulting damages. Why does Yang Hyun Suk CEO only favor 2NE1?”

Yang Hyun Suk then wrote an entry on their official YGLIFE blog on December 30th, in what seemed to be a conscious reaction from this backlash. He stated, “The reason why YG decided to reduce broadcast schedules was for the consideration of the artists. 2NE1, for example, must wake up at 2 AM to prepare their hair and make up for their early morning broadcast rehearsal; if they have another schedule the day before, they would be going to the broadcasting building with barely any sleep.”

However, this statement only enflamed the Big Bang fandom. Fans have expressed, “You can take care of 2NE1 in whichever way you like, just let the Big Bang members have more broadcasting time,” and “Yang Hyun Suk has a tendency to only take care of artists who are doing well.”

The general viewpoint of these Big Bang fans is that, just like with the subsiding promotions of Se7en, Gummy, and 1TYM, Big Bang’s promotions has been pushed aside in favor of 2NE1’s.

– For being a 1 year blackjack (and turning to two this coming April) and 4 years being VIP, I’ve never experienced hearing this kind of bias treatment (in case of 2ne1’s career) and a bit of maltreatment (in case of BigBang’s career). I thought it was always BigBang who has a good way of promotions rather than 2ne1 pero mali pala ako. O.O Ang daming nasabi ni Mr. YG dito pero iisa lamang ang lumalabas eh! >< Halatang may pinapanigan na ang lolo! O.O

4 years na akong fan ng YG family nang dahil sa BigBang. pero itong case na ito, never been in my consent/knowledge na mangyayari at nangyayari ito. T____T Iniisip ko na nga lang, maybe nagsasabi nga ng totoo si Mr. YG. However, doubtful ang statement nya. >_< Nevermind! Ang importante na lang siguro sa ngayon ay ang magandang samahan at patas na treatment between the CEO and its artists. 🙂 Pero sana marealize naman ng mga taga-YG na halatang mas importante pa sa kanila yung mga “simisikat” kesa sa “sikat na”. >_< Wag naman sana! T____T
