NCT 127 title track was banned by KBS Music Bank for the inclusion of the line “popping your head
like Kingsmen Chip”, which is heard about 45 seconds into the song. The group’s thumping hip-hop track failed to pass a lyric inspection due to this line which was deemed violent.
SM Entertainment issued a statement that to preserve the integrity and meaning of the song it has no intentions to change the lyrics in order to promote on KBS Music Bank.
The K-pop group will perform “0 Mile” at KBS Music Bank, while both songs will be promoted at other music shows.
