KBS Bans All H.O.T Songs Due to Tony’s Gambling Issue

On February 14, KBS announced that Tony has been banned from appearing on KBS programs due to his involvement in a recent gambling issue, where he illegally bet 400 million won on English Professional Soccer Games.

With this new ban, any video or voice files of the singer will not be played on the station, which includes all H.O.T songs since the group debuted in 1996.

“It’s not just H.O.T, but also the songs of Tak Jae Hoon and Roora, which Ko Young Wook was part of,” explained KBS.

KBS added that after the court verdict on the gambling case, the station maybe reconsider its decision.
