Announcer Park Eun Ji, who was originally a weather forecaster, commented on the portrayal of the occupation on SBS's 'Incarnation of Jealousy' through Gong Hyo Jin's character.  Already one weather forecaster on a major broadcasting company relayed complaints about it.  


Park Eun Ji was a bit more easygoing, writing on her Instagram, "First broadcast of 'Incarnation of Jealousy'!  I come out too~  I play announcer Park Jin!  But weather forecasters don't wear butt pads.  I never wore them.  It's probably just for fun, right?  I come out briefly, so search for me."


SEE ALSO: Nam Tae Hyun says he had a meal recently with WINNER members and considers them family



Regarding the controversy around the degrading portrayal of weather forecasters, the show said, "We have no intention whatsoever to criticize the occupation of weather forecasters.  The character is portrayed dramatically because it's a drama.  We wish you would simply view it as a drama."

    Okay. I also thought like "what?! is it really like that in the real life?!?" after watching the drama..but, come on, this is just drama . just like the drama representative said it's just drama and the character potrayed dramatically because IT'S DRAMA. P.s: I believe weather forecaster is part of news and also an anchor (not like this drama potrayed). But, I love this drama and have nothing to complaint XD

    It's different if they're using demographics which are already thought of negatively, and are progressing negative stereotypes. This... this is such a weird thing to be so angry about.
