Back in August, it was reported that SM Entertainment won the lawsuit they filed against the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family (MOGEF) for SM The Ballad‘s “Tomorrow…” off their debut album, ‘Miss You’.
To recap, the song had been labeled as “harmful media” by MOGEF back in January due to the lyrics containing the phrases, “So that I won’t miss you while [I’m] drunk”, and “I dream of you when I fall asleep drunk.” With the banning of the song, SM filed a lawsuit back in March and the court ruled in their favor in August.
After approximately fifty days since the ruling back in August, MOGEF has finally announced their official retraction on the ban for “Tomorrow”, stating, “Although, SM The Ballad’s ‘Miss You’ was deemed as harmful media by the youth protection agency, due to the result of the lawsuit by the SM Entertainment, and the court’s ruling – we are announcing [the retraction of the ban].”
SM Entertainment’s lawsuit against MOGEF and the court’s ruling has impacted many other singers who are also facing similar issues with their songs. Having come under fire for many decisions that they have made, MOGEF is currently preparing to implement new standards for judging of songs.
