Oh noes! Naked News Korea may be “harmful to teenagers”

Filed under: censorship, television — extrakorea @ 2:14 am

Normally, when I see a headline like “Topless News Channel Under Official Scrutiny,” off-color jokes begin to coalesce in my mind. But … oh no! …

The Korea Communications Standards Commission is monitoring Naked News, a topless channel launched here on May 23, it said Monday.

The commission has asked experts to review whether the service is harmful to teenagers and plans to take strict punitive measures if it disobeys relevant regulations.

Leave Naked News alone! Just leave it alone!

  1. Please, I had a day off recently, turned on the TV in the afternoon and saw topless women in the moves they were showing. Naked News—especially the Korean version, which from what I gather will just be topless—is no different than what’s already on TV. Hell, there is no simulated rape (I assume), which means it’s a little healthier than what you find after 10 pm on all the channels.

  2. Harmful for teenagers? How can a couple of nipples be harmful to teenagers?
