A favorite variety program was reprimanded by the South Korean Broadcasting Censorship Committee because it was considered to show irreverent action in the show. The show is Knowing Brothers episodes which broadcasted by JTBC. Taken from Kmazing.org The Broadcast Censorship Committee (South Korea’s broadcast censorship agency) gave the warning on December 22. The reason, Knowing Brother episodes again displays sexual harassment on the female guests who were present as well as fellow members of the program.
The warning was delivered by the Broadcasting Censorship Committee on December 22, on the basis of the existence of disrespectful attitudes towards female guests sexually on several occasions. Not only that, this warning was also given because Knowing Brothers episodes are often considered to use bad words. Reporting on Koreaboo, a member of the Committee named Ha Nam Shin stated the reason they gave a strong rebuke to the program on this pay television channel which was fronted by Kang Ho Dong and Super Junior Heechul.
“This program is a variety comedy program but also occupies a level of popularity that can compete with non-cabel programs (unpaid channels). This means that events also have to maintain their class level which reflects popularity and on this basis we decided to issue a warning,” Another committee member added, “On the 7th, I only paid attention to the use of language and improper actions so we had to issue warnings, but then realized that they had also objectified women sexually.” The things that were intended were scenes where Min Kyung Hoon presented Jun So Min with a bra made of paper cups. And there are also impolite words that are used like “You’re very feminine” and “Are you gay?” as well as other harsh words used at the event also mentioned as a problem. While more than 4 episodes have been observed to have these errors and there have been 37 complaints submitted by viewers. Read more on https://kmazing.org
