Male rights group, Man of Korea, insists on ban of Baek Jiyoung's new song "Good Boy"
Having protests and disagreements over derogatory lyrics and song messages is not a new occurance. However, this could very well be one of the few times where it is actually a male rights group complaining about being berated.
"Good Boy," featuring Yong Juhyung of BEAST, is the title track of Baek Jiyoung's newest album "Good Boy" that was released on May 17th.
Male rights group, Man of Korea, has filed an injunction over Baek Jiyoung's newest single "Good Boy." The reason behind their request for the ban is that the song berates males and implies that they are "stupid."
They placed an official statement on the organization's website stating, "The song contains lyrics that portray a relationship in which a female is older and suggests that her boyfriend is as stupid as a dog and needs to be tamed. In one part of the song, the way that the boyfriend talks back is likened to barking and biting the owner. The song berates men."
The male rights group went on with the argument stating, "Some people will claim that it’s an expression and that everyone is entitled to freedom of expression. But would it be an issue if the genders in the song were reversed?"
What are your thoughts? Does Man of Korea have a case, or are they simply over thinking the song?
