SBS' 'Return' may have to change its ratings

The Korea Communications Standards Commission may be ordering 'Return' to increase its ratings.

Currently, the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama is rated at PG-15. However, the first two episodes featured drug usage, self-harm (cutting), adultery, murder, and more. KCSC will be evaluating whether or not the show had broken Article 25 (on ethics), Article 26 (respecting life), Article 27 (maintaining class), Article 36 (on violence), and Article 44 (expropriation level).

Article 30, on gender equality, is also being considered because women were used in the episodes under situations of sexual violence, sexual harassment, prostitution, and domestic violence, just to portray the personalities of four of the male characters. A committee member said, "This happened because of [demand for] high ratings. Putting all these scenes in the first two episodes is noise marketing to get attention. The episodes are rerun on Sunday afternoon, meaning children and adolescents can be exposed to this."

What do you think will happen to the drama?
