tvN’s upcoming entertainment show “Ramyeon Kkondae Summer Camp” has been postponed indefinitely after one of its guest stars, webtoonist Joo Ho-Min, filed a criminal complaint against his son’s special education teacher for child abuse.
tvN producers issued a statement today, announcing that the first episode slated for Friday has been canceled, “‘Ramyeon Kkondae Summer Camp’ will not air on Aug. 4 as it was planned,” the statement said. “It has been postponed indefinitely.”
The incident currently making rounds took place in September. According to reports, the webtoonist’s son assaulted his classmates and removed his clothes to expose himself to female peers. However, Joo alleged that the teacher committed child abuse when they dealt with the situation. Joo filed a criminal complaint against the teacher after he hid a recording device in his son’s bag and recorded the teacher allegedly abusing his son.
Since the news broke, the webtoonist and the show have been criticized. Joo also appeared as a panel member on a pre-recorded SBS’ true crime “Kkokkomu” episode on July 27. SBS has been on the receiving end of complaints from viewers.
Aside from Joo, “Ramyeon Kkondae Summer Camp” was set to star fellow webtoon creators Kim Poong and Lee Mal-nyeon, YouTubers HeeBab, Pani Bottle, and Kwak Joon-bin, famous for his YouTube channel KwakTube.
