Brave blocks ads even if I turn off the brave shield

Description of the issue: There is a Korean education webpage called “Megastudy”. They provide educational videos to their customers. Since Megastudy really afraid of copying their contents, they have a very complex anit-copy program that blocked by Brave. (So I can’t watch their videos if I turn on the brave shield.) There is no ads on Megastudy and I understand it is too hard for Brave developers not to block their video but only ads (if you want to solve this problem, you should understand Korean language, educational system and pay more than 500$ for watching their video to check your job operated well.), so I just had turned off the Brave shield on Megastudy since last brave major update(ver91). But, after last update, Brave start to block Megastudy’s contents even though I turned off the Brave shild. I tried to delete or allow cookies and do other else that may be help to solve this problem, but nothing does work. Exact URL of the website in question: http://www.megastudy.net Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave

You can see there is a number on brave shield even if the shield turned off. The number increases when I start a video but I can’t capture them because Megastudy uses anti-capture program. Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no) yes Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off? Nope Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no): Does the site work as expected when using Chrome? Not at all Brave version (check About Brave ): 1.25.70 Chromium: 91.0.4472.77 (공식 빌드) (64비트) 공식 빌드 = Official build 64비트=64-bit
