It was recently revealed that Hyuna had lost up to 5 kg (11 pounds) to reach a weight of 39 kg (89 pounds) for her latest comeback track, “Bubble Pop!”.
An agency representative stated, “Hyuna (164cm) was normally around 42-44 kg, but she went down to 39 kg due to stress and exhaustive training for her second solo promotions.”
Although she threw in a lot of hard work, Hyuna’s “Bubble Pop!” promotions was forced to conclude prematurely as the Korea Broadcasting and Communications Review Committee (KCC) ruled that Hyuna’s choreography and outfits were “too sexually suggestive” for public broadcast.
“I wish they had viewed the performances as just performances. K-Pop is quickly trending around the world and this, along with the limits to its genre, may lead to restrictions in freedom of expression.” said her agency. Other representatives of the popular music industry also added, “We can’t understand why her song suddenly became an issue when it was in the middle of its promotions.”
Meanwhile, it was announced that on August 10th, the PDs of the three public music programs will be given a chance to express their own opinions about the issue of sexually provocative material on music shows with the committee members of the KCC.
“On the 10th, we will be exchanging opinions with broadcast representatives regarding this matter. PDs and other broadcasting staff are also allowed to participate; who will represent the companies is solely up to the choice of each. Instead of actively taking part in the discussion, people can also choose to send in written documents of their opinions. There is no obligation to participate.”
