The cable channel IHQ’s love entertainment ‘Eden’ is causing controversy by configuring the broadcast with the cohabitation setting of the performers.
In the second episode of ‘Eden’, which was broadcast on the 21st, the female performer who became the first mission winner was given the benefit of ‘the right to allocate a bed’. The production team suggested a rule that the capacity of each room in the dormitory should be 2-3 people and that the opposite sex should be assigned to the room.
A male performer became so enraged that he took off the microphone after learning about these rules and protested to the production team, “I want to pack up and go home.” After a while, the excitement subsided, but the performer pointed out, “If I had told you in advance that there may be mixed marriages and that there is a certain level of quality, I may not have appeared at all.”
The production team said, “I thought about such a conversational thing to see what kind of conversation could happen at night”, “Because a man and a woman sleep in the same bed (room) (only looking at their eyes), this is the part that can make you excited”, “I really like it I want to see the crunchy image of people who go to sleep when they slept,” he explained.
The male performer who protested said, “It was uncomfortable. It was nice to be able to talk a little more (in the bedroom), but rather, I didn’t want to sleep with the person I liked,” he said.
‘Eden’ aired for the first time on the 14th. It is a composition in which four men and four women each appear to find the person they like. There were a lot of exposure and skinship scenes, and from the first episode, it was engulfed in sensationalism.
At the production presentation earlier, the production team said, “Compared to other dating programs, the night is longer than the day. It’s not that they didn’t worry about the level.” He said, “It wasn’t something the production team could intervene for the cast members to touch each other without hesitation. We proceeded in accordance with the deliberation rules.”
‘Eden’ is being aired at 15-year-olds instead of 19-year-olds, which are not available for viewing by youth. For broadcasting, the broadcasting company determines the rating through voluntary deliberation.
In ‘Eden’, it was known that one of the cast members was sentenced to 6 months in prison, 2 years of probation, and 120 hours of community service for violent crimes.
