Korean netizens react to Kim Shin Young being replaced as the MC on 'National Singing Contest'

AKP STAFF

It was previously reported that Kim Shin Young was going to be replaced on 'National Singing Contest' by Nam Hee Suk

The news was met with controversy as it was seen as a decision made by KBS management, determining that a young female MC didn't fit with the demographic of the show, and is therefore leading to lower viewership ratings. 

In response, Korean netizens shared their opinion on the matter on a Korean online community

"Ugh so old-fashioned."

"That's Korea for you I guess.

"If that's the case why give it to her in the first place? Doing this all of a sudden, so ridiculous.

"She does such a good job though..."

"They should have just ended the show when Song Hae passed. What is this reasoning in the year 2024?
"What is this, the Joseon dynasty? Hahahahaha.

"Changing MCs like this really isn't going to do much, I feel."

"Maybe it's time to just end the program..."

"Old-fashioned people running these programs are the reason people are watching less TV.

"I knew something like this would happen."

"She's been doing well up to now, so what are they even saying. They should have just not cast her in the first place then."

"Let's see just how well they do after changing to a male MC." 

"So embarrassing." 

"Are they crazy? Isn't this lawsuit worthy?"
