KBS responds to reports of 'Hello Counselor' coming to an end


On August 17, representatives from KBS2 responded to earlier reports claiming that the broadcasting station's signature program 'Hello Counselor' would be coming to an end after 9 years. 

KBS told news outlets, "The reports that 'Hello Counselor' will be ending are false. We are currently considering various readjustments and changes." 

Previously, reports claimed that 'Hello Counselor' would be coming to an end some time in late September or early October. However, it seems more likely that the program will go on a break for a short while, in order to implement changes.

I don't hate the show, but I definitely hate the way they handle some of the more severe problems and issues on the show. There are people that come on there with some legitimately unhealthy issues and coping mechanisms, and the manner in which they are handled is so inappropriate at times. I definitely don't believe that there is any ill-intent on the part of the hosts by any means, but they need to hire licensed professionals to handle some of the deeper issues for which people come on the show. Many of them have gotten either unhealthy or pointless advice which certainly won't help the problems, and in some cases could very well exacerbate them.

Some of the stories the families share on Hello Counselor are beyond shocking.

The show needs serious fundamental changes if they hope to provide any benefit to families seeking help with their problems. It just seems exploitative the way things are now.
