B2ST’s lawsuit against the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family comes to a close
Allkpop previously reported that B2ST and Cube Entertainment were filing a lawsuit against theMinistry of Gender Equality and Family for banning the song “Rainy Days,” from their 1st official album as “harmful media.”
It seems that the parties involved were able to come to a conclusion as Cube Entertainment stated,“Last month on the 25th at Seoul’s administrative court of justice, the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family was given a suspension of their decision that [the song] was harmful to minors, and on the 5th, the court passed the suspension request.” Seoul’s court of justice commented, “In order to solve the loss experienced by the plaintiff, we decided that a quick decision was needed.”
The song “Rainy Days” was originally banned in July for the lyrics, “You must be drunk, I think this is a good time to stop,” as the Ministry claimed it would encourage minors to drink alcohol. Cube Entertainment will be dropping their lawsuit against the Ministry as the ban against the song is being suspended.
