Hunan Television recently announced on their official Weibo page, "Hunan Television's new variety program 'Dearly Accommodations' will air this coming October. It is scheduled to air on Saturdays at 10 p.m.'"
According to the description, 'Dearly Accommodations' revolves around two couples running guest houses where viewers will get to observe the lives of two different couples.
Other celebrities are set to make appearances on the program as the couples interact with guests and show off their family-style cooking skills. It has a similar format to 'Hyori's Bed & Breakfast' reality series.
Upon hearing the news, Chinese netizens and other affiliates voiced their opinions opposing the variety program. This isn't the first time the broadcasting station was hit with such an issue. Previously, the station was ridiculed for plagiarizing other Korean programs like tvN's 'Three Meals a Day' and 'Youn's Kitchen'.
Netizens expressed, "This is clearly 'Hyori's Bed & Breakfast," and posted comments critiquing the series on Hunan Television's social media page.
A Chinese media outlet stated, "This most likely is not Hunan Television's first time plagiarizing nor will it be their last," and criticized the station's approach of trying to copy other programs as a whole.
