It should be a time to celebrate the release and success of Jonghyun‘s final album, “Poet｜Artist”.
But Korean TV network KBS has offended fans around the world by confirming they have banned the use of the track “Rewind” from all shows, including radio.
The bizarre move was made due to the use of “One, two, three. One more time” in Japanese. Due due tense history with Japan, KBS do not include any Japanese content on their network.
“Rewind” was originally a song performed at Jonghyun’s solo concert, The Letter in 2017.
Despite their efforts to dampen the day, the late SHINee idol’s album is continuing to be a huge success around the world.
“Poet｜Artist” topped the domestic and worldwide album charts in the US, knocking out the likes of Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran.
