As expected, the recording for future episodes of the SBS Sunday variety show “Running Man” was canceled this week. Recording for the show normally takes place on Monday and Tuesday, but filming for the entertainment oriented program was deemed inappropriate and difficult in the current situation.
Filming for next week is also uncertain as the ferry disaster continues to grip the nation, according to SBS reps. The April 20 broadcast of “Running Man” was canceled, with the coming Sunday’s broadcast still up in the air. It is likely that all variety programs will continue to be suspended for the coming weeks. So far, only KBS has confirmed the suspension of variety show programming for this week.
