Netizens have found something else to complain about. Recently, an online community is abuzz with a conspiracy theory that the female guests on SBS's variety program, 'Running Man,' are unable to wear their seat belts appropriately because of the Broadcasting Standards Commission.

The netizens claim, "Because the female celebrities are wary of the Broadcasting Standards Commission and [worry that] their breasts [will] stand out because of the seat belts, they are unable to properly wear their seat belts. Because of this sexual controversy, their safety is at risk." The netizens are claiming that the female guests wear the seat belts lower rather than letting the strap fall naturally and diagonally down their torso because it would accentuate their chest and might offend the Broadcasting Standards Commission. Screenshots were taken of Seolhyun, Bomi, and Song Ji Hyo wearing the seat belts as such.
However, the Broadcasting Standards Commission addressed this odd controversy with, "There's no exact content regarding the method of wearing a seat belt; we only have a rule that they must comply with the traffic safety laws and have a law-abiding mentality. If anything, them not wearing their seat belts properly could go against the traffic safety laws," concluding that the claim this was the commission's fault was unreasonable.
A portion of netizens wondered, "I can't understand why in the world are you arguing the pros and cons regarding scenes like this?" criticizing the netizens who even brought something up like this and publicized it in the first place.
