Kim Samuel's solo debut is one of the year's most anticipated releases, but it's just hit a slight snag.

According to Naver, two songs from his upcoming mini-album, Sixteen, have been banned by broadcast network KBS for using brand names in the lyrics. Title track "Sixteen" says "Insta," referring to Instagram, while b-side "123" mentions "Ferrari."

Luckily for fans, Samuel has plans to edit the lyrics to "Sixteen" so he'll be able to perform it on KBS without any issues.

Samuel's first mini-album will be released on August 2. Are you excited?
