110318 MBC Discontent About TVXQ’s New Song Lyrics, ‘Know This (Before You Go)’ Underwent Lyrics Modification
TVXQ’s repackaged album title track ‘Know This (Before You Go)’ has been going through lyrics modification.
TVXQ released their repackaged album of ‘Why (Keep Your Head Down)’ on last March 16th, announcing a brand new title song ‘Know This (Before You Go)’. This album title track is out the SMP boundary, unlike their previous hit ‘Why’ as it’s highly influenced by R&B style.
However after the album release, the song was announced in MBC Radio with a slight different lyrics. The lyrics part “So stupid was I, an idiot who couldn’t even protect you” was modified by replacing word ‘idiot’ to be ‘like a fool’.
SM Entertainment side clarified the news to Newsen on the 18th, “According to MBC radio and TV standard, the lyrics is not appropriate, thus we changed word ‘idiot’ to ‘like a fool’.” Yet SBS and KBS passed the song without any problem.
Therefore TVXQ is expected to perform their new song ‘Know This (Before You Go)’ in MBC ‘Show! Music Core’ with the revised lyrics version, meanwhile for the rest KBS 2TV ‘Music Bank’ and SBS ‘Inkigayo’, the group will sing the original lyrics. TVXQ has finished the pre-recording of their debut performance of ‘Know This (Before You Go) original version at KBS 2TV ‘Music Bank’ on today the 18th.
As soon as ‘Know This (Before You Go)’ was out, the album went to top the album sales daily real time chart of Hanteo, showing the power of highly popular group TVXQ.
