A men’s rights activist group called Man of Korea filed an injunction against the Korean pop song “Be Ambitious,” by Dal Shabet. The group takes issue with lyrics “are about a woman who’s thirsty for sex.”
“She’s very sexual in revealing that she can’t take it anymore (without sex) and is annoyed at her boyfriend who ‘wastes’ time by talking all night instead of having sex,” they complain. “The lyrics talk about seducing a man to have sex with her by wearing short skirts… The lyrics make it sound like women can’t go on without sex. Also, it can induce sexual assault from the youth by planting the wrong influence about women and sex…”
Earlier this year, the same men’s rights group tried to ban another song by a female Korean pop singer. Baek Ji-young’s “Good Boy” song “berates men” and “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.”
So, another country has to deal with a political groups comprised of straight men complaining about their so-called oppression. Am I supposed to be relieved or sad?
