The Lottery Commission of the Ministry of Strategy and Finance has taken issue with the prank as it decreases public confidence in the lottery system. On April 7, the commission stated, "After commissioning an advisor, it's hard to say whether the 'New Yang Nam Show' has committed a serious legal violation against lottery law. However, it's easy to see the controversy of the lottery after the broadcast, and the content of the broadcast has been judged to be detrimental to the reliability of lottery tickets."

The commission continued that the lottery must be secure and transparent in the public eye, and the Broadcasting Communication Deliberation Committee has been contacted several times concerning the 'New Yang Nam Show' prank.

Stay tuned for updates.

Yeah probably would have been smarter to have invented a fake lottery for the purpose of the prank. I'm pretty sure in the majority of other countries the TV stations would never use someone elsees product in a prank without gaining permission first.

What I've gathered from the comments is that upwards of 90% of people commenting just read the title and decided that was enough information to make a bunch of wild assumptions and complain about them. If you ever catch yourself being guilty of that, please do yourself and everyone else a favor and kill yourself.

If you ever find yourself telling someone else to kill themselves for any reason, please do yourself and everyone else a favor and rethink your actions.

So she really didn't win anything? Wow... that is harsh. Making the poor girl think that she has won a nice amount of money! just to be told that it`s not for real? I know you can buy fake lottery cards... and give them to people as a joke, to make them think they have won something! but personally.. i don't think these kind of jokes are funny.

Why should you even have any confidence in lottery tickets, lottery is luck not something you should be confident in.

seems kind of irrelevant considering 1. there's no evidence Hyeri or her company made a complaint, 2. the article says absolutely nothing about how the "prank" affected Hyeri, and 3. there's been no mention about what "people" said about this
