Netizens have found something else to complain about.  Recently, an online community is abuzz with a conspiracy theory that the female guests on SBS's variety program, 'Running Man,' are unable to wear their seat belts appropriately because of the Broadcasting Standards Commission.

The netizens claim, "Because the female celebrities are wary of the Broadcasting Standards Commission and [worry that] their breasts [will] stand out because of the seat belts, they are unable to properly wear their seat belts.  Because of this sexual controversy, their safety is at risk."  The netizens are claiming that the female guests wear the seat belts lower rather than letting the strap fall naturally and diagonally down their torso because it would accentuate their chest and might offend the Broadcasting Standards Commission.  Screenshots were taken of Seolhyun, Bomi, and Song Ji Hyo wearing the seat belts as such.

However, the Broadcasting Standards Commission addressed this odd controversy with, "There's no exact content regarding the method of wearing a seat belt; we only have a rule that they must comply with the traffic safety laws and have a law-abiding mentality. If anything, them not wearing their seat belts properly could go against the traffic safety laws," concluding that the claim this was the commission's fault was unreasonable.

A portion of netizens wondered, "I can't understand why in the world are you arguing the pros and cons regarding scenes like this?" criticizing the netizens who even brought something up like this and publicized it in the first place.

What do you make of this strange issue?

Some people feel uncomfortable with the seat belt across their chest. I know that I do and usually wear my seat belt like that but I understand that it is a safety issue.

i dont think it has anythingg to do with regulations. it's more to do with them thinking it either looks better this way or that they think they will be sexualized if they wear if the correct way. sad state of mind

I find it unreasonable for such controversy. If you just were to think in the other point of view, such controversy wont happen. For a female, letting the seat belt drop naturally is uncomfortable as we cant move around. I also cant totally disagree with the fact some female wear seat belts that way is due to they worry that their breasts stand out. But to blame it on the law, it is rediculous. If it is the law, should not the men do the same for fair treatment as such way may hurt other part of the body?

Hopefully the airbag will protect these women from smashing their faces on the dashboard or windshield upon a front end impact, since their shoulder is not restrained properly. For once, I agree with the criticism.
