The four MCs of the JTBC variety show “Witch Hunt” responded to negative online comments towards the show on the 100th special episode which aired on July 10. The first part of the show was titled “I Can Hear You Swearing“, in which the MCs read the malicious comments and responded with their thoughts.
One comment said, “‘Witch Hunt’ is still broadcasting?” and Sung Si Kyung said, “I don’t know what this means. Why would he write it? I don’t think he actually hates us.”
Shin Dong Yeop said, “Maybe he feels that we’ve fallen into a rut. Maybe he wants more sensational gossip.”
Another comment said that the episodes are fabricated. Heo Ji Woong said, “I have never even thought about this. The stories we deal with on air are very different from the stories that you see on other TV programs.”
Shin Dong Yeop said, “I heard that there are many stories that are too scandalous for TV. Those stories don’t get aired directly, since they would be censored, but the producers of our show sometimes have to change the stories a bit to make it suitable for broadcasting.” Yoo Se Yoon said, “Then I guess our show is fabricated,” bringing laughter into the studio.
