Korea Communications Standards Commission (shortened hereby to the KCSC) has taken advised action in regards to having recommended for administrative guidance and legal sanctions; in connections to the subject of Park Yuchun’s sexual assault controversy that was aired on MBC ‘PD Journal’.
The KCSC introduced MBC ‘PD Journal’ on its item after holding the 25th Broadcast Deliberation Subcommittee special meeting in the main conference room of its broadcast hall in Mok-dong, Yangcheon-gu, Seoul in the afternoon of July 20th.
On this day the KCSC pointed out: “They launched a broadcast that lost its poise after overlooking the early stage where there were no concrete facts established when they aired Park Yuchun case,” and, “The program’s method of progress also led its broadcast, thinking the man to be guilty. This was a treatment that was against the balance”.
Following, they added, “The[/Park Yuchun’s] agency disclosed their reason through an email to ‘PD Journal’ side about an interview would be impossible, but it is as though they ignored the contact and thus it is a problem that they put out their broadcast,” in regards to ‘PD Journal’ side had not been contact by the agency.
The KCSC explained the reason for their recommended suggestions: “It was a subject worth airing but there is a problem with the production crew when they filled it with specific contents [from an ongoing investigation] therein”.
