On June 14, various media outlets reported that SBS 'Laws of the Jungle' has recently filed a compensation claim against SM Entertainment for Super Junior Kangin's DUI arrest. However, SBS responded to the reports with denial.

According to Sports Chosun, an SBS representative stated, "The recent reports stating that SBS is preparing to file a compensation claim against SM Entertainment is false. It is also not true that SBS are asking Kangin to take responsibility for damages toward 'Laws of the Jungle' following his DUI controversy." 

Meanwhile, Kangin has been continuously edited out of 'Laws of the Jungle in Papua New Guinea'.

IF there was any compensation, I think it would have been done behind the scenes. SBS and SM seem to have a pretty good business relationship and it was, more than likely, done between them as soon as the problem happened.

Law of The Jungle is a co-produce between SBS and SM C&C if I am not mistaken.

Wasn't it there choice to omit him from the episode he was meant to be featured in? It wouldn't make sense for them to be able to sue unless they paid for the airline ticket which is probably nothing for celebrities to pay.

Really AKP?

At least he will face consequences in the show, Sm is going to keep him out of legal trouble for sure.

Too bad SM is probably too influential for SBS to pick a fight with over small matters such as more unnecessary editing works.  Props to the editing team.

too bad. I don't envy the editors, I bet they had a hard time to edit him out without ruining the show. all my respect to them

I still don't get it why Law of the jungle had to do that because is just a show that people like to watch and enjoy end of the day and why you have to leave one member out just because they done something wrong. In thiw world no one is perfect and you can just show only people that don't do bad thing to put on air, is just not right and what if someone did something bad and hide from it and it should be show good and bad people so young can see it and look up too, rather then hide it and only show the good things and also do you guys had feeling? You maybe don't it a big deal but to other who had problem may feel it and how they can learn and change but there no support but just keep have had and bi remove from every show. Know each country had their own law but sometime we all need to think for other things and feel because at the end every do make mistake and no one is perfect unless you try to hard to be one which end up you just like one of us.

it's call contracts, schedules, dates of filming, syndicates and money. That's all that the television is and because of the reckless stupidity of one member all of that comes to a risk of falling down. I don't feel sorry for him since he did it

If Kang In is still on the show, its kinda like promoting "hey I can fuck up and nothing happend, so can you". It is to prevent celebrities do the same thing.

NeonPink Noneperfect Wednesday, June 15, 2016

if it would have been his first time I would agree with you, but he didn't learned the lesson, he didn't even apologize, so I can't agree with you.

What out of this all I have been hearing from some people amounts to "it's just a DUI". ::shrugs:: generations have changed I guess.

ygbad_boy RoAnon9935 Wednesday, June 15, 2016

don't know about changed but definitely more idiotic and/or moronic

bestrc Wednesday, June 15, 2016

they should...those editors deserve major overtime pay.  But SM is too powerful to piss off.

ygbad_boy bestrc Wednesday, June 15, 2016

given the fact the editors are underappreciated in the biz, I'd take my chances suing him or SM.

themightymoron ygbad_boy Wednesday, June 15, 2016

exactly, storytelling through video editing is a thing no one really pay attention to, but actually a very hard craft.

ygbad_boy themightymoron Wednesday, June 15, 2016

I feel ya. My uncle and two of my closest friends are editors and they're truly underappreciated along with writers and sound mixers and editors.

lulzbrooks bestrc Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Well since they're paid by salary I doubt it.. maybe a bigger bonus later on?? Anyways those editors in Korean broadcasting stations are usually the same as the director/producers (PD) and they will eventually become (if they're not presently) even more senior in their roles. If you mess with them they may never call upon celebrities within the same company.

watching this whole thing is like watching a line of dominos falling... a very long line Imay add...
