While singer Kim Ho-joong, who was sent to trial on charges of drunk driving and hit-and-run, disappeared from the three terrestrial broadcasters, his content is being streamed on Netflix.

If you check Netflix on the 26th, the documentary 'Meeting with the Wind: Kim Ho-jung's Season', which features Kim Ho-jung's national tour concert in documentary format, is streaming.

This is contrary to the fact that Kim Ho-joong was removed from most broadcasts, including the three domestic terrestrial broadcasters. Accordingly, it is pointed out that Netflix is focusing only on generating profits without considering domestic sentiment.

Previously, the three terrestrial broadcasters, including KBS, MBC, and SBS, deleted Kim Ho-joong's appearance. There are concerns that Kim Ho-joong, who has caused social controversy, may harm public sentiment if he appears on broadcast.

KBS 2TV entertainment program ‘The Boss’s Ears Are Donkey Ears’, KBS 2TV entertainment program ‘New Released Pyeon Restaurant’, KBS 2TV ‘Lunar New Year Special Jinseong Big Show BOK Korea’, MBC entertainment program ‘Save Holmes’, MBC entertainment program ‘An’ ‘It’s a Good Thing to Fight’ etc. deleted Kim Ho-joong’s appearance. SBS also discontinued the replay service that aired four years ago following the latest appearance of 'My Little Old Boy'.

KBS also held a Broadcasting Appearance Regulation Review Committee on the 29th of last month and decided to 'temporarily suspend broadcast appearances' against Kim Ho-joong, who caused social controversy by drunken hit-and-run. KBS said, "Although before the court's ruling, singer Kim Ho-joong has caused serious social controversy with repeated lies regarding a drunk driving accident, and petitions have been received from many viewers requesting that he be banned from appearing on broadcasts, so we have decided to 'temporarily suspend his appearances'." explained. He added, “We plan to adjust the level of regulation again in the future according to the court’s first trial ruling.”

Meanwhile, Kim Ho-jung crossed the center line on a road in Apgujeong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul at around 11:40 pm on the 9th of last month and ran away after colliding with a taxi on the opposite side. After the accident, a manager instead of Kim Ho-jung changed Kim Ho-jung's clothes and appeared at the police station, confessing on his behalf that he had driven the car, and another manager damaged the black box memory card of Kim Ho-jung's car.

Lee Gwang-deuk, the representative of the agency, later falsely explained, "Kim Ho-joong never drank and was unable to deal with the accident due to panic disorder, and he was the one who instigated the proxy's surrender," arousing public outrage. During this process, circumstances and evidence were revealed that Kim Ho-joong not only did not hesitate to act intimidatingly, such as instigating the agency's youngest manager to surrender on his behalf, but also systematically concealed crimes with the agency's representative.
