SBS Responds To Reports That “Master In The House” Was Plagiarized In China
SBS has issued a response to a recent controversy over a Chinese show having a similar format to “Master in the House.”
On March 30, Hunan Television aired “My Brilliant Masters,” an entertainment program in which four “disciples” spend three days and two nights with a “master” of a particular discipline and learn various things. The show stars actor Chu Ja Hyun‘s husband Yu Xiao Guang.
Following the broadcast, however, many began to accuse the program of plagiarism due to its similar format to SBS’s “Master in the House.”
On April 8, SBS responded, “We have never exported the ‘Master in the House’ format [to other countries]. We’re checking the contents of the broadcast and considering how to respond.”
