Orange Caramel’s “Catallena” MV Laughably Deemed Unsuitable for Broadcast


In the latest attempts to thwart the growing legion of the Cult of Caramel, KBS has stated that Orange Caramel’s music video for “Catallena” is not suitable for broadcast.

Because when one thinks of illicit material which could scar the minds of children, one immediately thinks of the polka dot wearing, aegyo-inspired dancing and general quirkiness of Orange Caramel. What kind of horrors is KBS trying to protect precious children from in “Catallena”? Apparently, the thought of eating Nana, Lizzy and Raina is too horrific for young minds to contemplate:

KBS explained that the music video made light of human life especially in its scenes where Orange Caramel is seen sitting on top of rice pretending to be sushi or struggling under plastic wrap.

Pledis Entertainment rep responded to various media outlets, “The scene in which the members are wrapped in plastic vinyl in the music video became an issue… We plan to edit out the controversial scene for reconsideration. For MBC and SBS, the video has passed and has been approved for all ages.”

Yes, “Catallena”, truly in the same league as Dexter or Hannibal when it comes to portraying human life in its most graphically depraved nature. For this is the kind of thing which a broadcast station must bravely stand against when trying to combat the terrifying and provocative agenda of the Cult of Caramel:

Not suitable for broadcast.

Not suitable for broadcast.






  1. That’s just dumb.

    1. It’s unfortunate but I think ‘Catallena’ is collateral damage in the Korean TV networks’ attempt to respond to public concerns over the recent spate of risque K-pop MVs and performances (see
      The most hilarious quote from the article:

      A Korean variety show even studied male viewers’ brainwaves when they watched such routines and concluded that their mental focus went down during that period, thereby providing circumstantial “evidence” for the ban.

      So yes, blame it on Korean guys who, like guys basically everywhere, get slack jawed when they watch hot girls on stage.

      1. recent? did they forget about Fin.K.L. era Kpop?

      2. Recent as in recent bunch of MVs. TV networks have been banning stuff forever. From Lee Hyori’s ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ (driving without a seat beat, I sh*t you not) to Rainbow’s ‘A’ (their Ab/Belly exposing dance move).
        All this has happened before, and all of it will happen again.

  2. i won’t mind. KBS stands for King of Banned Shit afterall.
