We reported that live music program SBS Inkigayo would be canceled due to an unfortunate event in Korea where a naval ship was sunk. As many people suspected, most shows announced that they would not be aired this week. However, one of the shows that will air on television as scheduled is Family Outing.
So far, five shows have been reported not to air as planned. Most of these shows are similar to Inkigayo where the program is aired live or has already been recorded a few hours earlier.
However, SBS announced that Family Outing will be airing as scheduled and relayed their condolences to the families of the navy soldiers lost at sea.
Though it may not seem appropriate at first, there’s nothing wrong with the regular airing of the show. Yes, an unfortunate event has occurred, but you know what they say: laughter is the best medicine.
