KBS reveals "blacklist" of 18 banned entertainers

Was comedian Kim Mi-hwa on to something when she accused KBS of "blacklisting" certain people for political reasons?

According to KBS, there is no such thing as a political blacklist. However, the network revealed that it indeed bans a number of people who are deemed "unethical."

As of July this year, there are a total of 18 people who are prohibited from appearing on the network for various reasons ranging from using drugs to gambling, KBS announced Monday.

Among the names on the list are comedian Kwak Han-gu, who was convicted of vehicle theft in 2009 and singer Lee Sang-min, who was found running an illegal gambling website.

Illegal drug use is the most common reason for imposing the ban. Actor Ju Ji-hoon, actress Go Ho-kyung and model Ye Hak-young are among those who have been banned for being arrested for drug use.

Some of the unexpected names on the list include actors Lee Kyeong-yeong and Song Yeong-chang.

Lee was arrested for underage sex trafficking but was cleared of the charge in 2002. Song has appeared in several movies after serving a prison sentence for statutory rape.

He's a korean actor who's known for acting in "Antique Bakery" and also the k-drama "Goong". He was involved in a drug scandal last year, you can read more about that here: http://www.dramabeans.com/2009/05/drug-scandal-gets-joo-ji-hoon-banned-from-kbs/

He left earlier this year to do the mandatory service in the army that all Korean men do, so he'll be back in 2012.

I love how everyone's all "I miss Jihoon" and ignores the one guy who was arrested for UNDERAGE SEX TRAFFICKING and imprisoned for RAPE and is back making movies. Why the fuck is that guy still around!?
visual_jaeho 14th-Jul-2010 01:15 pm (UTC)
