[K-POP] KBS : Bans MC Mong, Shin Jung Hwan, Kim Sung Min, and Crown J

KBS has banned four entertainers from appearing on the channel.  MC Mong, Shin Jung Hwan, Kim Sung Min, and Crown J are all under controversy for immoral or illegal behavior.

KBS held a council meeting on December 8 to discuss the restriction of the entertainers’ appearances on TV.  They made the decision to ban all four of them.  They announced the ban on December 10.

The entertainers have come under fire from the public for various reasons.  MC Mong is currently undergoing trial for evading his mandatory two-year military service.  Shin Jung Hwan has been charged with illegal gambling overseas, although he has since fled the country.  Kim Sung Min and Crown J have both been charged for drug use.

A member of the KBS council said it was possible that the ban could be lifted sometime in the future.  “We decided to ban all those entertainers because they could ruin the reliability of broadcasting. If someone is acquitted or has enough time for self-restraint and self-reflection, we can lift the ban,” he stated.

With these four names, KBS has now banned a total of 22 entertainers from appearing on the channel.

  1. as much money and pop culture exposer that kim, sung min has made for kbs and the other korean stations a band should not be applied. a persons personal issues should be dealt with personally. i really like watching kim sung min weather in a drama or a tv show. making mistake is not just an actors problem and the station should support and help their employees. i am not saying what he did is right but it may be a problem that both the network and kim sung min can work out together. It may even help others that have a drug problem, allowing “regular” common people to seek the help and support they need.
