Rapper New Champ said on social media about Noel’s lyrics of “Ganggangganggang,” “The May 18 Gwangju incident and the military era are shameful and heartbreaking history.” He pointed out that the phrase, “Fliky Bang would have been tortured in the military era because the father, who can be the stem of the stem, is a vested interest and power, is a phrase that kills both the victims, including the real deceased, and the people who are awake.”
