SBS Responds To Reports Of Banning Jung Joon Young, Seungri, And Choi Jong Hoon
On April 12, it was reported that the three involved in the ongoing chatroom controversy have been banned from appearing on any SBS shows. Later that day, a source from SBS made a statement regarding the reports.
The source stated, “As there is concern regarding blacklisting, there has been no official internal discussion on appearance restrictions or bans. However, the directors personally devote themselves to making judgments, so they are implicitly refraining from casting celebrities that have invoked public criticism.”
The source continued, “In this current situation to be honest, there are no directors that would cast these celebrities right away. At a certain point, if a producer believes that a celebrity has had sufficient self-reflection and wants to cast the celebrity, then the committee can discuss and make a decision on the appearance.”
Previously, MBC banned Jung Joon Young and temporarily restricted Seungri and Choi Jong Hoon from appearing on the network’s broadcasts. KBS also temporarily restricted the three from appearing on any shows associated with the network.
