The girl band Dalshabet’s latest video ‘Hey Mr. Joker’ was banned in televisions across South Korea. The song starts as – “Hey Mr Joker, why are you shaking me up….”
The innocent sounding lyrics sounds quite different in the ears of the Korean audience.
In Korea, the word “joker” is written â€œì¡°ì»¤,â€ and is pronounced “Joh-kuh.”
The word “joh” in Korean is a man’s penis. That is not all, “kuh” means ‘big’ in Korean.
Now, when the word together is no longer as innocent as it sounds. When the girls sing the lyrics “Joker, I want it, I am out of breath, baby good night,” it has a whole new meaning to the Korean audience.
With concerns of sexual references in its lyrics of the song, KBS has banned the song in Korea.
