NCT 127 will not perform "Cherry Bomb" on Music Bank (SM denied to modify the lyrics)

NCT 127 will not perform its new title song on KBS' "Music Bank".

KBS has recently condemned the boy group's new song "Cherry Bomb", stating "Some parts of the lyrics describe an act of violence". The lyrics were "Hit the head, pop" and "Burst you head". Well, it's not the first time for KBS to make a ridiculous decision, and some of k-pop singers had to modify their lyrics to perform their songs on "Music Bank".

However, this time, SM Entertainment denied to modify the lyrics of "Cherry Bomb" because SM thought the worth of the song could be damaged if they change the original lyrics. Instead, NCT 127 will perform "0mile" on "Music Bank".

And of course, NCT 127 will perform "Cheery Bomb" on various other music chart shows including "M Countdown" and "Inkigayo".
