“Running Man” Receives Warning for Airing Chinese Swear Word


The popular SBS variety show “Running Man” has received a warning from the Korea Communications Standards Commission.

On July 14, “Running Man” aired its “Asian Dream Cup Race” and during the show, footage of f(x)‘s Sulli saying a Chinese swear word was broadcast.

After the audio was aired, the Korea Communications Standards Commission stated on August 6, “We will be issuing a warning against ‘Running Man.’ However, this is not a legal action.”

Previously, the “Running Man” staff explained, “Sulli was just imitating a word she heard from someone at the time. She didn’t even know what the word meant. It was an editing mistake on our part.”
