Wonho Reveals The Lyrics Of Song ‘Aint About You’ Was Originally Made More Explicit But Had To Change

Wonho Explained That He Personally Couldn’t Use Explicit Language Like The F Word In His Own Music Because Of The Korean Broadcasting Regulations Where He Was Promoting His Song.

Wonho recently revealed that his song “Ain’t About You,” featuring American singer Kiaara was originally composed with more explicit lyrics. “Aint About You” was released in 2021 on Wonho’s album “Love Synonym Pt.2: Right for Us” and contains two swear words, sh*t and p*ssed.

But in an interview with MTV, Wonho was asked if there was a song that boosted his confidence. Wonho explained that he personally cannot use explicit language like the F word in his own music due to Korean broadcasting regulations.

K-Pop idols often appear on music shows to promote their new music, so they can’t condemn in their lyrics. Even recently, several Bangta Boys aka BTS songs from their new album “Proof” were deemed unfit for music performances.

“You can’t put swear words in Korea because it won’t pass the broadcasting regulations,” Wonho said. The former MONSTA X member also revealed that “Ain’t About You” was originally meant to include the phrase “F*ck you”.

“In one of my songs, ‘Ain’t About You,’ the original lyrics included things like ‘F*ck you,'” Wonho exclaimed. To his dismay, the lyrics for the song were toned down. Wonho expressed his desire to release more raw songs where he can say whatever he wants. “Even though there was a raw version as well, we ended up holding it in. Seeing that made me want to make a song where I can say whatever I want to convey to the listener,” he added.

Similarly, girl group (G)I-DLE talked about prejudice against K-Pop idols using “bad words” in their lyrics. So, their song “TOMBOY” from their comeback album “I Never Die” which contains a beeping sound replaces “f*cking.” However, they released an explicit version on CD and recently performed it at The Seoul 2022 WATERBOMB Festival.
