National broadcaster KBS announced Wednesday that Big Bang‘s lead track “Fxxk It” from their most recent album “Made” will not be permitted to air, as the lyrics have been deemed inappropriate.

According to the announcement, KBS’ music review panel had flagged “Fxxk It” as inappropriate for broadcast due to its lyrics.

The word in particular that was flagged was “yangachi,” which translates to “thug” or “scumbag.” KBS flagged the term as slang and too vulgar for broadcast.

In response, YG Entertainment said, “We will not be reviewing the song,” asserting that they will not change the lyrics to be more broadcast-friendly.
