'The Show' staff is making the following statmenet on the Christmas video.
First, we sincerely apologize about hurting our program's two MCs Wooshin and Somi because of an unexpected controversy. And we are also sorry for troubling viewers who love 'The Show'.
The video was filmed from Somi's manager's phone at 'The Show' staff's request. 'The Show' staff were not present during the filming, but managers from both labels were present. Not only did we check if the filming was okay with the two MCs, but they also did a rehearsal beforehand and filmed without problems. The final product was also monitored by both parties before we received and uploaded it.
If you watch the video, you can see that the MCs are standing apart from each other. The problematic scene that cast a shadow on Somi's tie happened when Somi ducked her head so she wouldn't be out of the frame which coincided with Wooshin moving his hand while he was explaining, so it looked like one happened because of another. However, they definitely had physical distance between them, which we confirmed again through female managers on Somi's side, as well as staff. There was a misunderstanding because of the angle of the filming. We state again that there was no physical contact.
We are sorry for troubling you by not realizing that the video could have had misunderstandings. Wooshin and Somi always are considerate of each other during filming, and we are sad that this misunderstanding happened.
We sincerely apologize once again for the pain the two MCs received that was caused by the staff's thoughtless response, and we also apologize to the viewers of 'The Show' who was troubled by this event.
Hopefully this clears up misunderstandings!
