This week, MBC will once again be replaying past footage instead of the normal episode of 'I Live Alone', which airs every Friday at 10:50 pm KST.
This is a result of MBC's ongoing strike which began on September 4. Numerous variety programs haven't aired their normal schedule. Popular titles like 'I Live Alone', 'Infinity Challenge' 'Mask King' and 'Radio Star' have all broadcasted special episodes.
And out of all, viewers of 'I Live Alone' are expressing much anger on the issue as the last episode before the strike left them hanging with Kim Chung Jae's highly anticipated visit to comedian Park Narae's Narae Bar.
Netizens commented, "When can I see Mr. Chung Jae again?" "How long will this strike last?" "Such a fiasco because of MBC's CEO, how lovely," "Can't they just air whatever they filmed before going on strike?"
However, the majority are showing support for the general strike and hoping this will become an opportunity for MBC to fix its many internal conflicts.
