The show, titled 'Namwon Sangsa (short for Male Vitality Increasing Company)', will be MCed by Shin Dong Yup, Kim Jun Ho, and Jang Dong Min. In a call to look for people to be guests on the show, the show says, "Men who have been oppressed by women, rise up! Male territory will start to increase with 'Namwon Sangsa'." It promises to help men who haven't been able to 'sleep comfortably' because of strong women recharge their energy.
Some of the requirements include, on top of having an XY chromosome, men who "want to take revenge on women", men who want to "live the romanticized male life", men who have "injured male souls", and more.
Of course, the program was met with intense fury not just among women but disbelieving men, who couldn't believe what was happening, especially in a country that was as strongly dominated by males as Korea is. Jang Dong Min, being one of the MCs, merely adds salt to the wound, as he had once had to step away from the entertainment industry because of his misogynistic words.
In an attempt to placate some of the anger, XTM said, "It's a program to support men who are exhausted by this generation, and it was planned to help understand men and also foster understanding between men and women. We think the expressions that we used to try to humorously deliver the message of the program caused some misunderstanding. We will be more careful in planning so we could create a program that can be resonated with."
The show is programmed to air in April.
