KBS bans all of HOT's songs from broadcast due to Tony Ahn's illegal gambling


Article: [Exclusive] All of HOT's songs banned from broadcast by KBS... can't listen to 'Candy' anymore

Source
: Sports Seoul via Naver

Because Tony Ahn's illegal gambling, KBS determined that all related content/material will be banned from broadcast, including music videos and digital songs.

1. [+9,377, -284] Tony Ahn just did a team kill.. Should've been more careful.

2. [+7,090, -245] Now this is what you call a nuisance to the team tsk

3. [+5,658, -241] All because of Tony Ahn

4. [+5,459, -174] Imagine the guilt he feels

5. [+4,886, -153] Aigoo.. Tony-yah

6. [+1,692, -32] Why are broadcast companies so forgiving only to Jo Hyung Ki?

7. [+1,466, -64] This doesn't seem right... Those HOT albums aren't just Tony's, they're a group's work.

8. [+1,295, -71] Isn't this going a bit too far? ㅡㅡ

1. [+1,570, -61] Going too far ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1,299, -47] Why not ban MC the Max's songs too then?

3. [+1,177, -48] Holy, this is going too far, isn't it?

4. [+81, -4] They do nothing about the stripping girl groups but call a song like 'Candy' unfit for broadcast ㅋㅋ

5. [+61, -3] The doublestandards ㅋㅋㅋ Kim Jun Ho got a daesang even with a gambling history ㅋㅋ Not saying Tony Ahn did anything good but HOT songs aren't Tony's sole creations.. I don't get why the ban on all of them ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+61, -3] Yeah, as if banning an 18 year old song will help anything ㅋㅋ Do you not know what world we're living in? All of these songs can be searched up on the internet all over the world. If you're going to punish him, find another way ㅋㅋ

7. [+40, -2] This is really ridiculous. Those Stellar sl*ts should be banned, what is this decision making?

8. [+24, -2] The person committed the crime, not the song. What crime did the song commit to be banned 20 years into its life?

  2. is banning all of H.O.T's old songs supposed to make tony ahn reflect upon his mistakes?


    smh kbs lmao

    ReplyDelete
  3. Yeah, why is the rest of the group getting punished for one member's mistakes. Overkill.

    ReplyDelete
  4. how is this punishing tony ?

    ReplyDelete
  5. At comment number 7: Please everyone, refrain from calling them sluts and whores. I've seen plenty of comments slutshaming them when it's probably not even their faults for this concept. Blame the manegement and the industry for being so dirty and the general society for making sex sell. They are not sluts because of this concept, even if it's a tad too much. A slut means someone is sleeping with a lot of people, their concept is too much and might be too revealing but that is not what a slut is.


    TL;DR SLUT SHAMING IS NEVER GOOD

    ReplyDelete
  6. So mc the max doesn't get banned for doing something way worse but H.O.T does for just one member gambling lol whats logic

    ReplyDelete
  7. doesn't he have solo songs or smth so they don't have to ban HOT's songs

    THIS! So true. You might as well say that Tony should not appear for awhile for the issue to die down.

    They aren't sl*ts. You can't even tell if they are or not. It was a concept. A very bad concept.

    ReplyDelete
  14. logic is a foreign concept to korean media

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow KBS is reaching really far. I don't think many people rely on tv for music in this day and age, but if they're really desperate for that there is always MBC and SBS and other cable channels.


    Man, he must feel really guilty, talk about team kill.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I see no logic there.

  17. 7. [+40, -2] This is really ridiculous. Those Stellar sl*ts should be banned, what is this decision making?



    Slut-shaming again, knetz. Insinuating that girl groups are at fault when their company gives them 'sexy' concepts - even implying that 'sexy' concepts are bad at all.


    But I agree. This is going way too far on KBS's behalf.

    ReplyDelete
  18. that's what I was just thinking right now...wtf kbs

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL!
    At least he got to Bang Hyeri for a while.


    Just laugh it off for a while and just keep moving.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't understand how banning HOT songs will do anything. But yet you have pedofiles running around. If KBS really wanted to ban something than just ban tony an himself like what MBC did

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is really going to far... Did KBS just get bored and want to start drama??

    ReplyDelete
  22. its obviously not meant as a punishment, kbs aren't exactly stupid, if fans wanted to hear the song they could get it else where. i'm guessing they got tired of having to pay SM/HOT every time they played the song and used the moment as a screening device

    ReplyDelete
  23. This is all they can do. LOL
    They can't stop their popularity from climbing.
    There is no such thing as negative publicity. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. 5. [+61, -3] The double standards ㅋㅋㅋ Kim Jun Ho got a daesang even with a
    gambling history ㅋㅋ Not saying Tony Ahn did anything good but HOT songs
    aren't Tony's sole creations
    .. I don't get why the ban on all of them
    ㅋㅋㅋ



    Exactly.


    Even if banning their songs from broadcast isn't a big deal since you can look up the songs online, it's the principle of the thing. If they're going to punish and entire group because of the actions of one member then they should treat all other groups the same way. But then again, this is KBS. Since when do they not show favoritism...

    ReplyDelete
  25. tony ahn doesn't need anymore publicity lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is really all they can do.
    They can't really stop H.O.T.'s continuing publicity because there is no such thing as negative publicity. LOL

  28. Makes me feel someone in KBS seems to approve of Lee Soo's existence and crimes.

    ReplyDelete
  29. There IS such a thing as negative publicity. The only people who say that "any and all press is good press" are publicists who are trying to keep their jobs after fucking up a press release.

  30. 2. [+1,299, -47] Why not ban MC the Max's songs too then?


    By far the most sensible statement so MC the Max can make a comeback but someone who has a bit of a spin on the Casino tables is given a lifetime ban.



    What bunch of dumb smocks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Quite right but he can't help it at this point.
    There is no turning back.
    He just has to keep moving and not let this affect his plans for the future.
    Only a blip in the radar for him I'm quite sure.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It annoys me how everyone else in the group has to suffer just because he fucked up ㄱ.ㄱ even more frustrating how they didn't take action against MC the Max. They both screwed up and maybe it's just me but hiring under aged prostitutes is a lot lot shadier than gambling. Laws regarding sexual harassment seems to be inexistent there

    ReplyDelete
  33. Can't argue with you there but for this celebrities case, its a good press nonetheless or its exposure that will make everyone remember him for a quite a long time.
    He and H O T will come back into the spotlight again.

    ReplyDelete
  34. They're not sluts, but their new concept is trashy as fuck. It's not empowering women when their concept is "I'll do anything for you oppa just tell me what to do!!" or whatever.

    ReplyDelete
  35. What's with the down votes? Everything you said was right lol.

    ReplyDelete
  36. KBS makes it seem like if they play "Candy" on their broadcasts viewers will start gambling.

    ReplyDelete
  37. stellar aren't sluts, they are being paid to pretend to be sluts, big difference.

    ReplyDelete
  38. most celebs with money have illegally gambled, they just haven't been caught


    yet.


    lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. Just because it's not empowering for women, doesn't mean that they're sluts or whores because I've seen so many comments calling them sluts and really "fucking whores" including the korean comment in the article.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I know right. Its an Asian thing.
    They all gamble trust me. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  41. those downvotes tho..
    lol salty fangirls don't play

  42. oh my god this is so dumb i dont know whether to laugh or cry. wtf are you gonna do about that mc max guy

  43. Hyeri won't give a shit.
    Girls Day's star is on the rise and it will only keep climbing but if they do ban her, that would be so funny. LOL


    GO Girls Day!

  44. He and Moon Hee Jun need to just stop already. We all loved H.O.T., but those days are already over. If he needs a gambling scandal to stay relevant, then it's time to walk away.

    ReplyDelete
  45. They must like that sort of thing but not gambling.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I said something similar and got downvotes too.... DOES THIS MEAN THESE PEOPLE WANT THEM TO BE CALLED SLUTS?
    ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Weren't KBS the ones who wabted to ban Suju's SPY for the gun use so they were forced to delay the mv in order to change it? Or am I thinking of another one? OTL bad memory .-.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yes Tony committed a crime, but what did their songs do to deserve that? KBS's decision is too harsh.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Way to punish EVERYONE BUT Tony Ahn...good job KBS

    ReplyDelete
  50. Its not like he got caught on purpose.
    He just got caught and in this case, he might as well roll with the punches and take the publicity no matter what.

    ReplyDelete
  51. All those covers rookies and SMtown idols do can't air on KBS. It's kind of like KBS shooting themselves in the foot.

    ReplyDelete
  52. This is tony's doing, not HOT. So uh, why banned the group song??

    ReplyDelete
  53. Especially since Stellar didn't do anything illegal. I would not put them in the same category as Tony Ahn, who I wouldn't put in the same category as MC the Max and that murderer.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's hard for Asian society to differentiate between the two, because... it's not like it's required to have a slutty concept to become famous, is it? So why do it even though it'll cheapen the group's image?


    If they were going for a provocative concept, they should've opted to go with a song that has an actual message so the lack of clothing has an artistic purpose. Or something. Just... anything.

    ReplyDelete
  55. u can hear sung shiwon throwing a riot in front of the kbs building.

    ReplyDelete
  56. So does this mean idol groups can't preform H.O.T songs anymore? Damn, I love when people preform Candy, even if they can't preform as well as the orignals. But when is a cover ever better than the original?

    But seriously, what is the use of this? I cannot see any logic here except they're using him as an example and they're saying, "Look what we did to H.O.T and Tony - the #1 from the first gen. We can do it to you too."

    ReplyDelete
  57. Okay, I was totally in agreement with your comment until you decided to "define" a slut as "someone is sleeping with a lot of people". Like really? Gonna have to call you out on how hypocritical your comment became with that. That IS slut shaming.


    You know what a person who has sex with a lot of people is? They aren't a slut or a whore or a player. They are simply a person who has sex with a lot of people. And there ain't nothing wrong with that.


    And you wanna know what a slut is? A derogatory term.

    ReplyDelete
  58. 7. [+40, -2] This is really ridiculous. Those Stellar sl*ts should be banned, what is this decision making?



    stellar appearing randomly... operation successful.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I wonder if the old H.O.T fans will kick up a fuss though. They used to be ... crazy. But they've probably all settled down with families now.

    ReplyDelete
  60. So agree with the commebt about Jo Hyung Ki. It really irks me to see him on dramas!

    ReplyDelete
  61. So what the fuck did the other members of H.O.T do to deserve this? Did Tony write all of H.O.T's songs? I'm wondering how the owners of the songs are feeling about this whole thing. I don't think it will be a permanent ban, but still this seems a little extreme. H.O.T hasn't even released anything together in over a decade.

    ReplyDelete
  62. How about Shinhwa then? Wasn't Andy also took part int this gambling?

    ReplyDelete
  63. 4. [+81, -4] They do nothing about the stripping girl groups but call a song like 'Candy' unfit for broadcast ㅋㅋ

    Yeah because making a group change their choreography and clothes is doing nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  66. and they are still promoting as a group and have released albums in the last decade...i really don't get what KBS is thinking.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Ok, I'll edit my comment because it got on the wrong way, It was just a misunderstanding.

    ReplyDelete
  68. hate the crime not the person >_>

    ReplyDelete
  69. NB can you do a article on the transgender women who claims a idol group member used her.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Reminds me of a Rizzle Kicks' song when it says: "Damn right I'm a slut, but I'm a boy so it's all good" (he's critcising soceity in the whole song) and then "What's with a girl who likes sex? It's only wrong if it's not with you, so maybe you should get better in bed."

    People need to stop judge someone on the way they use their own body. It's theirs and they are free to use it as they wish.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Since they're banning people and things, I want Jo Hyung Ki banned.

    ReplyDelete
  72. that's completey insane ! they should be able to make teh difference between a personal issue and music or else a lot of good music would have been banned if we follow their logic.
    South-Korea's industry sometimes is just so messed-up.
    and i agree with some of the comments. How come people like Jo Hyung Ki are able to MC on a broadcast channel then ?

    it seems so hypocrite.

    ReplyDelete
  73. hum...it depends on the crime.

    ReplyDelete
  74. NB has a surge of people who freely use the downvote button and think of it as a way to invalidate someone's opinion.
    But the more downvotes on the slut comments probably don't like Stellar. Don't ask why, I have no idea. Jealousy and annoyance maybe? Idk.

    ReplyDelete
  75. This just seems ridiculous...like if all N'Sync songs were banned because Chris Kirkpatrick had too many outstanding parking tickets...ㅡ_ㅡ. A person who is no longer a member of a disbanded group should not have that much sway over whether or not a song gets airtime or gets used by others on broadcast.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I think logic is a foreign concept to the whole legal system of Korean.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Woah. What happened? I'd search but I'm on the phone with crappy internet. I hate hurricanes.

    ReplyDelete
  78. used her ? what do you mean by that ?

    ReplyDelete
  79. I think logic is a foreign concept to pretty much the whole west too.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Tony is no longer under SM Entertainment. SM Entertainment have the rights to all of H.O.Ts songs(please do correct me if i'm mistaken about that)...so I'm just waiting for SME to be vocal about this ban being ridiculous. I hope we get a statement/press release from SM's people.

    ReplyDelete
  81. i'm surprised that gifs of shiwon aren't all over this comment section yet tbh

    ReplyDelete
  82. This is utterly bullshit!
    Why the fuck would they even do this?
    Like K-netz are saying: those songs belong to the GROUP, NOT Tony. They shouldnt blame the entire group for something that just 1 member did.

    ReplyDelete
  83. WOW! That's without a DOUBT going too far.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I edited away that part of my comment, wrote it too fast + misunderstanding, sorry! ^^

    ReplyDelete
  85. "7. [+40, -2] This is really ridiculous. Those Stellar sl*ts should be banned, what is this decision making? "


    Here's a big 凸 to whoever write and/or support this statement! I know that Stellar's MV is way overboard but you have no rights to call them a s!ut. How would you feel if someone uses this word to describe your daughter or wife? Think twice before you write such a brainless comment! Shame on you guys!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Maybe the whole world.
    Well, at least in west they never ban a song just because the writer/ singer committed in a crime. I give them credit for that.

  88. So they won't ban someone who prostitute 15-16 years old, a man who killed a woman and tried to hide the body but they will ban someone who gambled from the broadcast. what kind of f**cking logic is this.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Sexy concepts sucks. That's why you are getting downvoted.

    ReplyDelete
  90. 8. [+24, -2] The person committed the crime, not the song. What crime did the song commit to be banned 20 years into its life?

    This! The songs just turned of age. What would all the other songs in its year think of them? (≧y≦*)Seriously, this is so stupid. What does banning songs gonna do?

    ReplyDelete
  91. isn't this a bit extreme? lol what does the song(an old song and a groups work) have to do with him? banning all HIS future activities isn't unreasonable. I just don't see the reasoning behind this at all...

    ReplyDelete
  92. What a strange ban. Were HOT songs even really being used on KBS? It sounds like someone would cover one once in a while. Why even bring this up, KBS?

    ReplyDelete
  93. This is from akp.

    "A transgender woman hereby called A recently uploaded a message on Facebook, revealing details of mistreatment from a male idol group member hereby called B. According to A, B had joined an existing idol group as a new member back in November.

    On February 11, A wrote, "I know that this will be like spitting back into my face, but as I can no longer take it, I am going to self-destruct."According to this message, A and B had lived together as more than just friends before the latter debuted in an idol group. A insisted that she helped him out in various ways, including financial support. However, B betrayed her by meeting other girlfriends just like how he previously betrayed his girlfriends before dating A.

    She wrote, "Saying he needed to sign a contract with the idol group's agency, he borrowed money and then one-sidedly cut off all contact with me. After getting acell phone under my name, he did not settle the utility charges . . .
    Even while he was with me, he had many lovers. In addition, he would alternate between siding with different parties to fool around with people. The current you is a public enemy. Are you a sociopath by any chance?

    Despite everything, you had soothed me, but all my love and sympathy has now disappeared. I no longer feel any fidelity towards B. I feel no duty to protect him . . . I can reveal all the text messages, SNS, and more that I've shared with B. I will become the biggest obstacle in your future from now on."



    I am curious to see who k netizens suspect the male idol is.

  96. Actor and comedian Jo Hyung Ki who frequents variety shows these days with his image as a funny old man is known as “Killer Jo” because of the crime he committed back in 1991. He killed a woman in her 30s while driving under the influence of alcohol. What makes his case much more serious than it already is, is the fact that he took the dead body and dumped it somewhere else
    in an attempt to conceal his crime – ironically, he was caught red
    handed because he fell asleep in the car right beside where he hid the
    body. He served one year before being released, and his case is
    one of the landmark cases that law students come across in their studies
    as a drunk driving murderer being released after one year which remains
    highly controversial till this day. He began appearing in dramas right
    after he was released.

  98. Unfortunately it's not news to hear that cash transactions are more important than a human life. Killers, rapists and violent criminals get a slap on the wrist but a thief or fraudster will get 10 years in jail.

    Not to say that theft is a victimless crime but criminals get a harsher punishment for money crimes than physically violent crimes. This isn't unique to Korea either though, so will likely never change, unfortunately....

  101. Well if they did that normal people would think of why they said that and then if there is no basis yell back. so your argument could use work. its like when someone commits a crime and we cant call them a bad person because their parents would feel even worse.

  108. Of course it's gonna make Tony reflect. How can bring down his group like this. Getting in a scandal like this during their crucial time is unforgivable. The company should just kick him out and replace him with Kim Jong Kook.

  118. Nah. Actually 凸 is a Chinese character, not a symbol. Anyways, it's just wrong to call someone a s!ut just because of that controversial mv. The word is simply to offensive.

  119. I bet he was turning his ring on his finger, waiting for the right time to strike

  120. What I want to know is if their going to ban
    Shinwha too because of Andy

    ReplyDelete
  121. The problem is that contemporary Korean governments are too scared of making their legal system and national police force tougher, because they think it'll somehow make them look similar to the military-background dictators in the past.


    Real irony is that the police and even military were far more active and efficient in fighting crime back then.

  122. Plot twist: He kills everyone at KBS bet they'll regret not doing it then haha (Not really calling harm to others just a joke)

    ReplyDelete
  123. they were both involved in gambling but I'm guessing the severity is different hence they didn't take such extreme punishment on Andy & Shinhwa (yet?)

    Nonetheless, this banning of H.O.T. songs because of Tony is really over the top to me too

    ReplyDelete
  124. According to him, he went to a pimp, asked for an underage girl, and paid to have sex with her. According to everyone else, he raped an underaged victim of human trafficking.

  125. Wanna elaborate more? What's the issue with the guy from Code V???

    ReplyDelete
  126. Dumb double standards. Why only H.O.T then? Why not crack down on any of the other celebrities who have broken the law?

  131. not Hara's fault that he murdered a poor woman.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Lee Soogeun, Tony An and Tak Jaehoon have been temporarily banned from appearing on MBC, whereas Boom, Andy and Yang Sehyung have been placed under summary indictment. However if the committee decides upon banning them permanently, then they will never be able to appear on MBC again.

    ReplyDelete
  133. gambling with money outside of the law is whats illegal.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I hope they would not do that. Andy's case is not worse than Tony Ah.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I think korean's law says whatever types of gambling, it is illegal action. Even you did it online or in real life.

  136. lol@ the Stellar comment. surprised no one mentioned T-ara

    ReplyDelete
  137. I might not be familiar with Korea's standards/laws/culture but this... I always understood the army dodging controversies but how does gambling meets stricter laws and punishment than encouraging prostitution of minors and rape?

    Why not ban MC the Max ? This is the biggest question out there. KBS always seemed so fkn shady.

    ReplyDelete
  138. and don't forget jo hyung ki/killer jo & ryu si won/ryucifer.
    And recently, Ryu Siwon was found guilty for assaulting & spying on his ex-wife. Ryucifer+woman beater=best combo

    ReplyDelete
  139. wow...that was serious crime...or murder...

    ReplyDelete
  140. + Ryu Si Won too.
    He killed a bystander in the 90's but avoid jail time by settling with the victim's family. If that to ancient, he also found guilty last year for assaulting & spying on his ex-wife.

  161. It's all about money, dummies. KBS is a government channel. If people started to gamble overseas in large numbers, the Korean government would lose revenue. So this is why they have done this.

  168. I didn't judge the whole country, I just talked about the legislation.



    Just so you know, my conclusion did not come from some k-netizen comments and random information.


    Have a nice day!

    ReplyDelete
  169. In all honesty though, South Korea's legal system is pretty piss-poor when it comes to punishing figures in the entertainment industry. There's boatloads of examples such as;


    . The men who sexually abused actress Jang Jayeon. Few if any got actually serious punishments


    . Jo Hyunki, only served a year in prison after running down a woman with his car while drunk and even tried to hide the body.


    . OPW Ent's CEO getting just 6 years of prison after multiple rapes, including minors as well as forcing others to do the same.


    . Ryu Siwon - aside from being a jackass to his partner, he also has blood on his hands yet did not serve time in jail because he 'financially settled' things with the victim's family


    . Lee Soo Man didn't even serve his jail sentence despite being convicted of fraud, only to be pardoned by the president - not to mention he was on Interpol's Wanted List while on the run.


    The list is endless. Heck, an ent. industry figure doing that sort of crap in the 70s and 80s would have led to being tortured and beaten half to death by the police.


    If you're talking about I-fans judging Korea as a country based off K-net comments though, then we're in agreement.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Okay, not only he committed manslaughter, but... Did he really try to dump the body? Are you serious? That's insane, only people fucked in their minds would do something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  171. it happened a while ago, i'm sure he got kicked out the group. I don't follow them either but yeah they were kinda popular don't know what happened to them. He's such a shitty person.

    ReplyDelete
  172. That's why they were very untrustworthy. Its all about the $$$
    No wonder YG gives no fk about them and never goes on their fkn shows lol

    ReplyDelete
  173. You Shouldn't Do ThatFebruary 13, 2014 at 11:05 PM

    He would have gotten away with it, but he was so drunk that he fell asleep in his car next to where he hid the body. Fun Fact: He didn't even become an "entertainer" until AFTER his 1 year in prison.

    ReplyDelete
  174. You Shouldn't Do ThatFebruary 13, 2014 at 11:08 PM

    And even though there was audio evidence that he hit his ex-wife and threatened to have her killed the prosecution was more concerned about the tracking devices. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  175. to be fair, it's only one member in each group, H.O.T. and MC The Max. But yeah, MC The Max doing worse thing. Gambler vs. Sex offender.

    ReplyDelete
  176. You Shouldn't Do ThatFebruary 13, 2014 at 11:14 PM

    It's practically law that you can't become an Idol unless you can sing, rap and dance Candy from start to finish. There isn't a male Idol group in all of South Korea that doesn't have video footage of at least member performing the song. KBS is ruining all future idols!

  177. SM is not happy. They want their royalties.

    ReplyDelete
  178. All gambling is illegal in South Korea. Even the casinos that do exist are only open to foreign visitors. So basically any kind of gambling, including online, can result in a hefty fine or even jail time. Obviously that's harder to monitor, but some do get caught.

    The lottery is the only exception, but even that is closely monitored. I was also told that it's illegal for South Koreans who travel travel to other countries to gamble there too. I guess it's just a SK thing, like how alcohol is a banned substance in some countries but isn't in others.

    ReplyDelete
  179. sorry, but what's the difference ?

  180. This so much.
