"Racket Boys" production team apologizes over negative depiction of Indonesian badminton team

The production team of SBS's ongoing TV series "Racket Boys" apologized Thursday over its negative portrayal of the Indonesian badminton team and audience.

The apology came three days after the network aired the fifth episode of the drama, which featured a Korean badminton player heading for Jakarta, Indonesia's capital, to compete against a local player. In the episode, a Korean coach surnamed Fang ― played by Ahn Nae-sang ― grumbled that the Indonesian staff deliberately did not provide a proper space for his player to practice and criticized the Indonesian audience for "cheering at their opponent's mistakes" during their game.

The scenes drew the ire of many Indonesian viewers, who say the drama belittled Indonesians.

"It's really disappointing," an internet user commented on SBS's Instagram. "We Indonesian fans never mock other countries. Please clarify what Fang said."

Controversy rises after film about murder of N.K. leader's brother denied art film status




A U.S. documentary film about the murder of the North Korean leader's brother Kim Jong-nam has come into the spotlight as the South Korean film authority refused to give the work the status of an art movie.

Directed and produced by Ryan White, "Assassins" follows the two women who killed Kim by using toxic chemicals at the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2017.

Kim was the eldest son of deceased North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and the half-brother of Jong-un, the incumbent leader of the reclusive country.

The 104-minute documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, one of the world's largest independent film festivals, last year.
