'Running Man' sanctioned for broadcasting a 'sexually harassing' scene

SBS' 'Running Man' is sanctioned for broadcasting an inappropriate scene. 

On December 12, the Korea Communications Standards Commission issued a "legal sanction" to 'Running Man' for a dangerous scene concerning sexual harassment. KCSC also plans to submit the issue for a discussion in the plenary session. 

Back on the August 26th episode, Lee Kwang Soo pulled down Kim Jong Kook's pants. Kim Jong Kook's lower half was blurred out but his underwear was exposed at the scene. In reaction to the exposure, Noh Sa Yeon commented, "I missed it. I'm so unlucky." The caption also referred to the front location of his exposure as an "Unexpected ideal spot." 

KCSC found the scene problematic and stated, "Even though it's an incident that happened during a game on a variety show, they broadcasted what could've been considered sexual harassment without any filters." It continued, "Despite KCSC's criticism on the issue, the program did not take proper action and continuously violated the regulations. They seem to have no willingness to improve."

In July, 'Running Man' received an official warning from KCSC for vulgar language.

I just want to add something. They are targeting a show that once led the the Hallyu Wave. This show shook the world everywhere they go. And now they are treating them like shit.

I've seen guys being "pantsed" on a lot of korean variety shows. It's practically a staple on RM all these years. Is it bc you could see his underwear? They've done much worse to KJK in the past (he was stripped naked).

If they did it to a girl people would be very upset for her.

It’s because it would have been a man doing it to a woman. If it was a woman doing it to another woman and having a laugh like these two guys were then nobody would care either.

God no. A woman being humilaiated in this way would be a HUGE issue in Korea even if a toddler innocently did it.

This type of thing has happened so many times before in this show. Everyone who watches this show knows how close everyone are, esp LKW and KJK, they do these types of things (pranks/gags) to each other nearly episode per episode. It's suspicious how they're just putting it to light now? I mean in a big bang episode, they literally took off his boxers at some point so he was naked underwater?? Yet nobody put up a fuss ... All I'm saying is if KJK had or has a problem with it, then he would've voiced it out to the production team for this episode or the many other episodes where they've pulled similar pranks on him.

Why is he doing that to another man? Pulling down someones pants is so juvenile and inappropriate.

Just SHUT the goddamn show!!!

What about the Physical Harassment LKS been receiving for the past 9 years???

They've been doing a lot to LKS but they were all quite. And this incident happened months ago and they are just doing something just now? I mean, what the F???!
It's better to close RUNNING MAN! It's no fun anymore anyway.

to bitchfangirl: 1st of all they have never did that to a female. They treat them with such care so shut the fuck up with that. Now if KJK don’t complain then it shouldn’t be this serious. There’s only 3 people on the show that that’s done to to an extent, LKS, YJS and KJK. They aren’t complaining so everyone else needs to take a fucking chill pill!! Lil pussies!!!😡😡😡🤬🤬

"Despite KCSC's criticism on the issue, the program did not take proper action and continuously violated the regulations. They seem to have no willingness to improve."


SBS has been adamant on closing/ending Running man despite it's enormous contribution to SBS itself. This variety show literally put the entire SBS out of it deficit, they tried to end it before but they got criticized for being ungrateful, but now i think they are trying to do it in another way..

During early RM started back then, these kind of things already happened a lot. They got penalty and have to go home with hot pants. And these happened to Kim ByungMan in Law of The Jungle before, when his friend came and pull down Byungman's pants and showed his butt, he didn't even wear inner pants and they just blurred it out and still broadcasted. Was there any complaint or warning given to them too? Correct me if I'm wrong.

What she said was just a little inappropriate for this show considering the viewers but I don't think it's a full on sexual harrassment

Makes me laugh since it's not the first time this type of incident happens on variety. 1N2D has also had such incidents. Should they also sanction Law of the jungle for people in their underwear? This is why there is editing in these shows. This is not a story.

Oh come the motherfucking flying fuck on, man. How did they fucking think that there was some sexual harassment during that scene as there actually was no physical contact of a sexual nature towards Kim Jong Kook at all? I just don't get it. I really just don't fucking get it. Fuck the overly strict KCSC for all of this crazy bullshit, man. It just makes me so fucking glad that i'm always living in the United States where they always have actual censorship over violence, gore and other inappropriate content.

I do agree. They need to stop sexual harassment and honestly, their physical punishments too such as being whipped on the butt, forehead flicks, etc. I don't like those stuff. I feel like it shows kids that it's ok to play that way with their friends too but really it's not even cool.
