Korean song gets censored on US Radio

A Blackjack, who goes by the YouTube username Azarathsflamee, was caught off-guard recently when she heard her jam 2NE1's "I Am the Best" blasting on a US radio station. She wasn't caught off-guard because of the novelty of hearing 2NE1 on an American radio station but because the song was censored.


As hardcore and intense as 2NE1's electro tune "I Am the Best" is, K-Pop fans know that it's not a song that has a reason to be censored. In the clip above, Azarathsflamee explains, however, that the radio station bleeps out the song's "nae-ga"s and "nee-ga"s in some places, while in other places it weirdly leaves the "nae-ga"s and "nee-ga"s alone.

I guess censoring the "nae-ga"s and "nee-ga"s--which mean "I" and "you" respectively in Korean--kind of makes sense, since these words can sound like a very provocative term to unfamiliar ears . But hey, at least keep the editing consistent!



2NE1's "I Am the Best" was heard playing on a Boston radio station called AMP Radio 103.3. Although the video states that the song was heard on the 28th, AMP Radio only lists 2NE1's song on their October 27th playlist as shown below.



User Azarathsflamee ends the video by asking her viewers in subtitles, "Should or shouldn't they have edited it?" As great as it is to hear K-Pop on foreign radio, some radio stations might feel that some K-Pop songs need to be edited for those unfamiliar with the Korean language. At the same time, "naega" and "nega" are actually harmless words in Korean, and treating them as if they're provocative terms might be misrepresenting the language and the songs themselves.

K-Pop fans, what do you think?

Re: Korean song gets censored on US Radio

Such controversies about similiar sounding words happen not only with foreign words, but with English words too.

Re: Korean song gets censored on US Radio

The article lacks interest if it does not explain what the words may sound like. Not many people have the patience I showed to suffer through the video from the bimbo in the car.

I can only assume such a written explanation was censored.

I was going to give the example of how someone in New York lost his job because in a budget meeting he said that the upcoming budget would be niggardly.
But the post above already gives that example of political correctness gone crazy.
I think it was concluded that some people may not be familiar with the meaning of the word and might be offended. Therefore the person who used the word must be fired for offending those people who did not know enough English.

Re: Korean song gets censored on US Radio

I'm not a K-Pop fan but if the entire song is in Korean, then that "censorship" seems like more PCism gone mad.
