Running Man Gary's new music video is too hot for TV
Rapper and star of the hit variety show Running Man, Gary Kang released a new music video for his song "Shower Later" this week, and it's been causing quite the scandal. Korea's public network SBS has declared that they will not be airing the video on their channel due to its highly sexual content, but with over 1 million views on YouTube since its release 3 days ago, it doesn't look like the song will suffer in popularity.
The images in the video are quite graphic and depict scantily clad women performing very sexually suggestive acts. SBS commented, "The lyrics include some provocative phrases and other vulgar language. We've decided that it could be a negative influence on teenagers, so we've decided not to air it."
Netizens are commenting that "Shower Later" is unlike any Korean music video ever produced before, and have expressed their shock at seeing Gary in this light. You can judge the video for yourself, but be warned that it may contain images inappropriate for some viewers and is probably not safe for work:
I can't help but wonder if poor Gary made this video as a jealous retribution for Running Man costar and famed crush Song Ji Hyo flirting and laughing with Choi Jin Hyuk on the set of the new drama Emergency Couple.
Poor Gary doesn't look so poor anymore, though! However, it looks like even he had some shy moments during the making of.
What do you think of Gary's new video? Should it be banned from Korean TV? Has it changed your impression of Gary's character on Running Man?
