Se7en and SHINee’s new songs deemed inappropriate for broadcast by MBC, why?

Singers Se7en and SHINee’s new songs have been deemed as inappropriate for broadcast by MBC. MBC evaluation department has announced that Se7en ‘Money Can’t Buy Me Love’ and SHINee ‘Love Still Goes On’ are inappropriate for broadcast.

The reason for doing so is because in Se7en’s ‘Money Can’t Buy Me Love’, brand names like ‘Prada’, ‘Guess’ and ‘Gucci’ were mentioned. Same goes for SHINee ‘Love Goes On’ where ‘Facebook’ was mentioned in the song. The evaluation department consider this as indirect marketing for the brands.

It is known that the 2 singers will be editing the songs and resubmitting it for reevaluation by MBC. Similar case happened for Big Bang TOP ‘Turn It Up’ where the brand names ‘Louis Vuitton’ and ‘Dolce’ were mentioned in the song.
