The Korea Communications Standards Commission to Give 'It's Okay to Not Be Okay' Legal Sanctions for Including Slander, Genitalization, and Sexual Harassment

  • 27 Aug

The Korea Communications Standards Commission (KCSC) has submitted the tvN drama 'It's Okay to Not Be Okay' to the plenary session with the opinion of judicial sanctions.


According to reports, the Broadcasting Review Subcommittee of the KCSC revealed that the recently ended drama 'It's Okay to Not Be Okay' has been submitted to the plenary session with the opinion that the drama portrayed contents of slander, male genitalization, sexual harassment, justification of sexual harassment, and explicit verbal abuse.

A rep from the KCSC revealed, "The broadcasting content has possibly focused on the libido on non-sexual objects that symbolize the sex organs and justify sexual harassment. It shows the production team's lack of gender sensitivity. The excessive verbal abuse that is used in the drama that is aired during the youth viewing protection time has inevitably led to court sanctions."


If it's deemed that the drama has indeed violated the standards, penalties or court sanction will be finalized at a plenary session consisting of all nine members of the review committee upon the recommendation of the subcommittee.
