TV personality Kim Sae Rom under regulatory scrutiny for her careless remark


TV personality Kim Sae Rom is under review by the Korea Communications Standards Commission for making a slip of the tongue during her home shopping show.

On January 26th, it was reported that there was an official complaint filed against Kim Sae Rom for her careless remark. According to HeraldPOP, the Korea Communications Standards Commission commented "The filed complaint needs to be reviewed so it is unclear at the moment whether she will be sanctioned. We need more time." 

Previously on January 23rd, Kim Sae Rom appeared on a home shopping show which was programmed at the same time as the SBS' 'Unanswered Questions'. During the show, Kim Sae Rom stated, "Is the 'Unanswered question' show over? is it over? That's not what matters right now," emphasizing that the product she was selling was more important than the show. However, on that same day, 'Unanswered questions' was broadcasting the follow-up story of Jungin, the child who was abused by her adoptive parents to death, causing public outrage.

Kim Sae Rom posted a lengthy apology on her Instagram and GS Home Shopping CEO, Kim Ho Sung also apologized on his official Instagram account on the 24th, however, the case seems yet to be settled.

Even if she didn't knew the topic of that day, she shouldn't make that remark on other people show . Just stick to script and joke in appropriate amount.. but don't ever pick on other show or channel.. You can't say "It's okay, she didn't know.." because picking on someone else show in other show is considered rude doesn't matter if the show is even variety show... Even the international fans know that korean celebrity didn't allow to speak about other show on another show unless it broadcast on the same company.. Wait, not only korean artist, but other countries artist as well.. it's call manners..

Even if the show wasn't featuring the story on Jungin, I would be really annoyed if I was the director and producer and found out someone was talking down on my show like that. She should've just stuck to the script if she can't say nice things.
