The truth of the matter is the ratings were lower than they expected. If it was at least 20%, they would have told the celebrities to suck it up and made up some story about them improving the safety regulations.

7.6% ratings is not good enough for them to justify celebrities getting hurt. Also, SM doesn't want their name attached to something that ranks that low with five of their people on the show.

i think the difference between the us and korean diving show is that there are huge fan bases for the idols in the show and they become terrifying if their precious "oppas" get hurt. (exo album)

I think wipeout is more dangerous than this, but anyway, I really will miss this show.
