SHINee member JongHyun who tragically passed away not too long ago apparently had an album in the works. The album, titled 'Artist / Poet' was released recently posthumously.

One of the songs included in the album titled 'Rewind' has been deemed inappropriate to put on broadcast. The reason? Because the lyrics contain the Japanese language.

However, this isn't the first time K-Pop music has faced censorship because of containing the Japanese language within the lyrics. Girl group Crayon Pop's song 'Uh-ee', Block B  P.O's 'Mens' Night', and Pentagon's 'Cool Rap' have also faced the same censorship as well.

The censorship lingers as a dark reminder that the already grudge-ridden diplomatic relationship between South Korea and Japan still has long ways to go.

It is, in fact, really not about the use of Japanese, but rather the lyrics that openly express sex drive through "on fours, on the floor" etc

Which song do you mean?
Because it's not Rewind. It has no such lyrics.
