Popular variety show from South Korea, SBS‘s “Running Man“, have admitted to accusations of plagiarism involving Fuji TV‘s “VS Arashi“. The accusations emerged from the Dec 6th broadcast of Running Man where it featured very similar games from VS Arashi like the korokoro viking and the ping-pong game.
As the responsible TV station, SBS made an apology for the controversy as well as the show’s PD who said that they will improve the production to prevent similar recurrence in the future.
Frankly, I think that the Johnny-wotas and anti-whatever are in the same side for once. haha. Anyway, I enjoy both shows so it’s no big deal for me. However, I’m guessing that even “korokoro viking” is copyrighted so one must pay before you copy their game, it’s all about the money. XD
