Super Junior-D&E, controversy over new song 'disparaging women'
While the group Super Junior-D&E was embroiled in controversy over the title of their new song, they eventually bowed down.

On the 16th, the agency Odd Entertainment said through Super Junior-D&E's official SNS, "We were aware of the issues and opinions regarding this album's title song 'GGB' and held an internal meeting with the artist."

He continued, “There was absolutely no intention to use it in a negative sense, as expressed by fans.” In addition, "We have discussed various methods, but since almost all parts of the album production have already been completed, there are restrictions on changes. Therefore, after collecting various opinions from artists and internally, we have decided to cancel all music broadcast activities scheduled after Balhae. “It was decided,” he said.

Lastly, he added, "We would like to express our apologies to the fans who have been waiting with excitement for this comeback. And we would like to express our gratitude once again to the fans who always support us from the bottom of our hearts."

Super Junior-D&E will release their 5th mini album '606 (SIX ZERO SIX)' at 6 PM on the 26th. However, fans continued to point out the name of the new song, 'GGB'. This is because negative public opinion was formed as it was said that it was a derogatory term for girls. Accordingly, the agency expressed its position and decided to cancel the music broadcast.
