KBS announcer Kang Seung-hwa (left), who said “blessing” for a woman’s unwanted pregnancy, apologized directly, and the controversy still hasn’t subsided.
On the morning of the 9th, Kang Seung-hwa, announcer, said, “I have something to tell you about the remarks at the corner of ‘Lee In-cheol’s Mock Court’ yesterday at the opening of KBS2’s ‘Good Morning Korea Live’ part 1. She was in a position to convey her husband’s position in the corner. In the process of conveying his position, he could not understand the heart of his wife, who had an unwanted child. As a host, I sincerely apologize for the unrefined and excessive remarks.”
On the previous day, KBS2’s ‘Good Morning Korea Live’ and ‘Lee In-cheol’s Mock Court’ corner showed the story of a pregnant woman who agreed to live as a ‘dink family’ (a dual-income couple who intentionally do not have children while leading a normal married life). My husband had lied that he had had a vasectomy for 10 years, and he was disappointed with the lying husband and was thinking of divorce.
Announcer Kang Seung-hwa, who saw this, said to his wife talking about divorce, “There are many people who have difficulties because they can’t have children, isn’t it a blessing? Divorce is very inconvenient.”
Attorney Lee In-cheol said, “My husband made two mistakes. The first is that she lied that she had a vasectomy, and the second is that she is responsible for the negligence of the state.” “A wife can become pregnant at any time, but she was not careful. ” stated the position.
Immediately after Kang Seung-hwa’s remarks, criticisms about this decreased, and a petition was also posted on the KBS Viewers’ Rights Center asking for Kang Seung-hwa’s resignation.
In the petition titled ‘Please get off the announcer who said it was a blessing to a woman with an unwanted pregnancy,’ the petitioner said, “A Dink couple who had had a vasectomy for 10 years had a child, and found out that it is in the story of her husband lying. The announcer said, ‘I think I loved my wife a lot’, ‘It’s not a scam’, ‘It’s a celebration’, etc. It is absolutely impossible for KBS, a public broadcaster, to make remarks against the perpetrators.”
“It is a crime to deceive a wife into making her pregnant by lying about the agreed non-birth. I don’t want to see anyone on the show who says there’s no problem with this,” said Kang Seung-hwa, an announcer.
Even with the apology of announcer Kang Seung-hwa, the petition, which had reached 3,000 people as of 5:00 pm the previous day, has now surpassed 5,865 people (as of 1:30 pm on the 9th).
If more than 1,000 people agree for a month, the person in charge must respond directly, while KBS is said to be still in the process of arranging an official position.
