Restrictions imposed on dramas for 'unethical content'



A total of five dramas have received a warning from the Korea Communications Standards Commission

A general meeting was held on November 24th in order to impose restrictions against six different dramas from public broadcast and cable channels. The programs that received sanctions are MBC’s “Flames of Ambition,” “The Scarlet Letter,” SBS’s “Giant,” “CulTwo Show,” and KNN’s “Chase Scene Siren.”

“Flames of Ambition” received warnings for excessive scenes of violence, a scene with a hit-and-run, and other unethical content such as characters persuading others to rape the protagonist’s sister. The drama features stimulating scenes such as gangsters slapping and kicking Na Young (Shim Eun Kyung), Na Young asking neighborhood teens to rape her sister in order to become the new daughter-in-law of a wealthy family, and Na Young hitting her son’s birth mother with her car and running away.

“The Scarlet Letter” and “Giant” both received warnings for excessive scenes of violence and the broadcast of unethical content, while “Cultwo Show” was warned for vulgar language and the use of informal speech.

So basically all our korean dramas must be as sugarcoated about stalker teen girls going after the prince of her dreams who just also happens to fall head over heels for the dumb chick.
Ok deceive the public of girls into thinking every dark alley attempted rape or flasher will result in Kim HyunJoong saving you.


Put the age rating higher if you don't like it sheesh. `>.>`

and don't forget the main guy has to be mean to the girl and treat her like crap and of course she continues to like him and there has to be a second male lead who is extremely nice and would do anything for the girl, but in the end gets nothing.

Informal speech? In what context was this inappropriate? (Not a rhetorical question, I want details)
unf_mark 25th-Nov-2010 10:06 pm (UTC)
Probably the girl's crush's mum is a super duper important person, and the girl used the wrong style, cue crush's mum going apeshit.

Or something along those line...
dipropylene 25th-Nov-2010 09:43 pm (UTC)

I hate how the Korea media thinks that if you just ignore themes that have sex, violence, drugs, ect. then people will think they don't exist irl
