A new talk show that discusses current issues in society with a different view, “Into Sunday Night,” may have been off to a wrong start. They followed JaeBum to Seattle, which caused another ruckus with the netizens.
The producers of the show went to Seattle to try to meet JaeBum and see how he was doing. They went into Korean stores, asked Korean residents, and even went to JaeBum’s church to find out where he lives.
The producers finally found JaeBum’s house, and got to talk to his father and brother. His father stated that it would be hard for an interview, as JaeBum’s family does not want him to become an issue in Korea again.
After another long search, the producers found where JaeBum dances with his friends. When JaeBum found the camera, he hid behind his friend and simply apologized and left immediately. Feeling uncomfortable for what happened, JaeBum sent a 2PM album to where the producers were staying in. Inside the album, he wrote, “I can’t say anything as of right now. I’m sorry that you have come so far to meet me.” This made viewers feel bad for his fears for publicity.
The problem started after the clip of the search. One of the professors on the panel asked, “What happened to him?” after long discussion of the prior situation. He had no knowledge whatsoever of the situation. The viewers complained greatly due to this.
After the show, the viewers were disappointed for the host’s carelessness and the producer’s filming (searching all over the place without permission). They considered this as a invasion of privacy. The viewers and netizens asked for an apology and to stop the show entirely.
