5 Korean Programs Netizens Believe Should Shut Down For The Sake of Idols

Every year during the late summer and early fall, idols are required to participate in MBC‘s Idol Star Athletic Championships with many getting injured in the process and thus resulting a lot of criticism from netizens.

But it’s not only the Idol Star Athletic Championships that netizens aren’t happy with as this year, many have shown their distaste for the long-running virtual couple variety show We Got Married, citing that the show has lost its pizzazz and is doing more hurt to the image of the celebrities starring.

These two shows are just those of more that netizens have recently cited as television programs who should be shut down for the sake of both idols and celebrities alike.
