ABSTRACT

The article examined how the military regime, led by the Park Chung-hee regime and Chun Doo-hwan regime, influenced popular music by the regime's desire and oppression. In particular, the term "Choice" and "Exclusion" were used as part of the military’s repressive rule and as a strategy to differentiate itself from the military’s perspective, using the terms "Choice" and "Exclusion" depending on the nature of the military’s authoritarian regimes, contrary to the trend of existing research. The review of banning pop music under the military regime here is an example of a fusion study in which the military regime systemizes banned songs and oppresses the public with freedom of understanding and expression, but on the other hand, it has shown concurrency as a role of seeking to maintain the military's regime and tyrannize it. First, the banned songs under the military regime were mostly performed during the Park Chung-hee regime, which ruled out the creativity and legitimacy of those who made and sang songs, as they were performed by the ruling party’s desire for power or violence. Second, the lifting of the banned song under the military regime was made only after the military regime surrendered to the national uprising, in that the song was made in line with the trend of the June 1987 uprising. After all, the fact that there were many banned songs in terms of wind speed rather than in terms of public security was a sign that the military regime was severely oppressed by the public, socially and culturally.
