Animal rights organizations are strongly opposing tvN's new variety show 'Food Diary'.
On June 1, various animal rights organizations came together and announced,
"On May 30, the new variety show, 'Food Diary', which aims to become a new kind of experimental program, aired its first episode. From the first episode, an excessive amount of chicks were born in order to show the process of them becoming dak-bokkeum-tang (spicy chicken dish), and three dogs were used as props on the farm. Animal rights organizations strongly criticize the 'Food Diary' producers' intentions of growing and killing their own chickens and demand the end of 'Food Diary'."
The organization continued, "The program claimed their intentions are to show the process of how the food we eat come to our table but the chicken we eat in dak-bokkeum-tang are factory-grown. Therefore, it is not realistic."
Prior to this, netizens also questioned the moral standpoint of growing your own chicken for consumption.
