Controversy[edit]

On August 31, 2009, Korean broadcaster KBS banned the playing of the song "Anjullae" (안줄래 "Won't Give You") because of inappropriate lyrics, specifically the following line: "오늘부터 너 한테 나 안줄래 / 이제 다신 내 맘 전부 안줄래 / 이젠 다시 너한테는 안 줄래", which roughly translates to "Starting from today, I won’t give myself to you. Now, I will never give you my entire heart. Now, I won’t ever give myself to you." In response, Cube Entertainment stated, "The lyrics for "Anjullae" is about the pure feelings of a girl to a guy. We are very disappointed that the lyrics were deemed inappropriate."
