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.
