Jung So Min and Lee Joon's kiss scene in KBS 2TV weekend drama 'The Weird Father' is under review by the Korea Communications Standards Commission.


On the June 11 episode, a scene showed the producers demanding Byun Min Young (Jung So Min) to kiss Ahn Joong Hee (Lee Joon) on the cheeks and on the lips as he needed lip prints for filming.  


Many viewers found the scene uncomfortable and even named it sexual harassment as the two characters were forced to kiss at a workplace. Some viewers also filed complaints about the relationship between the two characters. Viewers are aware of the secret behind their births, however, Byun Min Young and Ahn Joong Hee believe they're stepsister and stepbrother in the drama.

The scene was ultimately sent to be reviewed by the Korea Communications Standards Commission.


In response to the complaints, Bae Kyung Soo CP of 'The Weird Father' also assured viewers with the statement, "In the drama, the two characters believe they're step-siblings, however, they will start dating in a normal relationship knowing they're unrelated and not step-siblings."

    Why so serious? It's just a drama. The real issue is why are they blurring knives, it is so obvious to us viewers that it is a KNIFE. What is the point of blurring it when guns are allowed SMH..

    one thing i wonder is that these forced intimacies are very popular in K-dramas. Especially when a girl is forced to do something intimate. The majority of the audience of basically any k-drama is female. So it's not hard to understand that sexual harassment of any kind is actually popular among them. Also, it's known that most women have or had sexual fantasies about getting raped or harassed. So what does this all mean? Is it some kind of frustration with society? Some morality difference between the government and the population? Or is it that the dramas portray events they can relate with so well? That would be very sad indeed...

    portraying sexual harassment is important... as long as it's in the right light. as long as it wasn't romanticized or something, i don't think it really matters.

    Leave it to netz to pop a vein over a make believe scene in a make believe drama.  I can only imagine if Game of Thrones was being aired in Korea.
