WINNER recently made a comeback with the release of their hit song "Island," but fans won't be seeing it performed on any KBS broadcast anytime soon.

According to a new report from XSports News, KBS announced that "Island" is unfit for broadcast due to the song's lyrics. It is reported that KBS banned the song because it contains “language about sexual relations between men and women or homosexuality, obscene content.” 

The lyrics that were the issue were reportedly “Just like a cocktail, shake it, I want to mix with you on the sofa.”

As for WINNER's second new single, "LOVE ME LOVE ME," it has been approved by KBS and will be performed by the group on broadcasts.
