'City Fisher' decides to cancel recording due to the controversy surrounding Microdot's parents

misc.
Channel A's 'City Fisher' ultimately decided to cancel the recording.

According to Munhwa Ilbo's exclusive report on November 20, 'City Fisher' decided to postpone the Jeju Island special due to the ongoing controversy involving Microdot's parents. 

Initially, the producers and the cast were scheduled to film a special in Jeju Island from November 23-25. 


Currently, Microdots' parents are accused of borrowing hundreds of thousands of dollars from family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues back in 1999 and not returning the funds. Many netizens came forward with their claims. Ultimately, the police decided to reinvestigate the case and Microdot's parents are planning to return to Korea from New Zealand to resolve the issue.

Its the one thing that kind of sucks in korea, even though you arent responsible for your families actions, you still get shamed by the public because your related. I hope they clear it up, and microdot and sanchez wont be affected too much from it, especially their music career.

You can't really compare possible money scams with a mass shooter though.

This is really dumb, unless he also scammed ppl or was involved in some kind of way I don't see why they have to cancel the recording.

MICRODOT is *not* a *permanent* cast member of that K-TV Show. So, with the S.K 'Morality Police' cultural situation, I can see their logic in the cancellation. NOT saying that this is exactly a 'high road' of decision making though. More like, they asked 'Do we NEED to take the HEAT' in this situation. The answer seems to be a 'NO' on that (MICRODOT).

OTHER NATIONS have 'Morality Police' perceptions too ; NOT just S.KOREA. BUT, I would say that S.KOREA culture, in particular, seems to regard any *small* offense (MICRODOT, the son) as being a 'BIG DEAL' to make of it.
