Warning For Violating Broadcasting Laws Slapped On Seungri’s Salty Tour Episode With Sejeong

On top of making viewers (and Sejeong) uncomfortable, the episode has been slammed by the KCCC.

Broadcasting station tvN received an official warning from the Korean Communication Standards Commissions (KCCC) for violating gender equality regulations.

The warning was issued for a scene on Salty Tour where BIGBANG’s Seungri asked gugudan’s Sejeong to pour drink for the most attractive male cast member. Sejeong appeared to have been uncomfortable with the task but went ahead anyway for the broadcast.

Sejeong’s notable discomfort with the situation drew criticisms from viewers of the show, including Seungri fans.
