[News] 2PM’s Nichkhun gets edited out from MBC’s ‘Idol Star Olympics’
2PM‘s Nichkhun who has recently been involved in a car accident has unfortunately been edited out from MBC‘s ‘Idol Star Olympics‘.
Head producer Park Suk Won who directed MBC’s London Olympic Special ‘Idol Star Olympics’ informed SportsSeoul on July 25th, “Nichkhun had established a team with T-ara‘s Jiyeon to participate in a mixed-doubles match of ping pong. Because it is not a one-on-one game, we could not edit him out as we would have had to cut out the entire match.”
He explained, “For example, you can’t report a baseball game without including the pitcher. The game will be broadcasted as is, but Nichkhun’s individual interviews have all been edited out.”
“The program airs tonight (July 25th in Korea), and there wasn’t time so we stayed up all night editing,” he continued. “We will work to make sure it isn’t uncomfortable for the viewers to watch.”
Nichkhun who participated in the ‘Idol Star Olympics’ along with 100+ other idols reportedly did extremely well in the mixed-doubles match, and had drawn much attention ahead of the broadcast.
But it seems because of his recent accident, MBC has taken measures to edit Nichkhun out of the Olympic special to avoid controversy.
