Sexually suggestive scenes at 2PM's concert

2010/08/05 Source

Six-member 2PM once again proved itself one of the most popular groups with their smashing success at their first independent concert last weekend.

However, some lewd moments during the concert became the center of controversy afterwards. "They went too far to stress their 'beast-idol' image", commented a female netizen who was at the concert.

Many complaints targeted obscene gestures during the song "Tired of Waiting". Each of the members paired up with a scantily dressed dancer and in the middle of the song, they mimicked sexual actions while the female dancers were lying down. Also, the dancers looked as if they were kissing various body parts of the members every now and then.

One might expect then that there might have been some restrictions on the audience's age in order to perform such inappropriate moves. Yet the age limit was preposterously low. The website of eBay Auction, which was exclusively in charge of the ticket sales, rated the concert "ages eight and over".

The Korea Media Rating Board claims to take little responsibility. "The board is not required to pre-rate performances such as concerts", said an official on the board. According to the board, the only concerts that are rated beforehand are those by international celebrities visiting Korea.

JYP Entertainment, 2PM's agency, has remained silent. It has not made any official statement. JYP seems to plan to stick to its original repertory for 2PM's concert in Busan. "I'm very excited for the concert in Busan!!! Hehe", posted Nick Khun, a member of 2PM, on Twitter Wednesday.

While JYP remains adamant, netizens are currently petitioning for necessary regulations online at Daum Agora's petition board. A total of 2,959 netizens have signed the petitions as of now.

"너무 야한 2PM 콘서트"

지난 주말 성황리에 공연을 마친 2PM 첫콘서트의 선전성 논란이 한창이다.

2PM멤버들은 "기다리다 지친다" 공연중 망사의상으로 등장한 백댄서들과 짝을 이뤄 무대를 꾸미는 과정에서 지나친 신체접촉과 성적인 묘사 등으로 공연후 네티즌들의 질책을 받고 있다.

관객들이 18세 이상 관람가라고 생각할만한 공연이 있었던 콘서트는 티켓 독점판매를 하고 있는 옥션 홈페이지에 "8세 이상"이라는 터무늬 없는 관람등급으로 기재 되어 있다.

이에 대해 영상물등급위원회에서는 " 콘서트 등 공연에 대해서는 사전 심의를 하지 않는다"며 "해외 스타들의 내한공연일 경우에만 영등위가 나서 등급을 정한다" 고 밝혔다.

JYP에선 아무런 공식입장을 밝히지 않았지만, 어제 2PM멤버 닉쿤이 트위터에 "I'm very excited for the concert in Busan!!! Hehe" 라고 쓴 점을 미루어 보아 향후 있을 2PM의 부산 콘서트 역시 같은 레퍼토리로 진행되는것이 아니냐는 의견이 제기되고 있다.

소속사와 주최측에 대응하기 위해 다음 아고라 게시판에는 네티즌이 청원의 목소리를 높이고 있다.
