The word ‘Halloween’ is expected to become an eternal taboo word in the broadcast world. Broadcasters have presented viewers with special contents related to Halloween every year, but this year they are trying to erase its traces by discarding or deleting broadcasts with Halloween-related content.
Recent broadcasts with Halloween specials and Halloween costumes have stopped their rerun services and VODs, and all the footages are being edited.
(T/n: article talks about example of shows that edited out their Halloween-related contents such as 1N2D, Hong Kim Coin, etc.)
A broadcasting official predicted, “Halloween-related programs, and events are not expected to be produced or held not only this year but going forward too in Korea.”
