Psy's 'Gentleman' video banned in South Korea

TV network executives in South Korea have banned pop sensation Psy's new 'Gentleman' video, in which he is seen destroying public property.

The rapper's follow-up to global chart buster 'Gangnam Style' opens with the star strolling down a street and kicking over a traffic cone and continues with the hitmaker tormenting beautiful women in a series of pranks, reported Huffington Post.

The cone sequences have offended channel chiefs at Kbs, who insist they amount to the destruction of public property, and they are refusing to air the clip for fear of negatively influencing youngsters to do the same.

Psy's managers have accepted the ban after refusing to edit the video for the network, but the snub appears to have just boosted the promo's popularity online.

'Gentleman' smashed online records with almost 19 million Youtube views within 24 hours of its release.

'Gentleman' has since racked up over 144 million views in its first five days online, but it still has a long way to go before matching the success of 'Gangnam Style', which became the first pop clip to ever reach one billion views.
