Amid the controversy over the fact that Park In-cheol, who appeared in ‘Master in the House’, lied on the broadcast, the production crew delivered an apology.
On the 14th, the production crew of SBS entertainment program ‘Master in the House’ posted their official position on the official website VOD regarding the controversy with CEO Park In-cheol.
First of all, the production crew bowed their head, saying, “We sincerely apologize to the Pandora TV officials and viewers for the fact that they were on the broadcast without having to check some of the remarks of the performers in detail.”
“In order to prevent further misunderstandings, the part was edited on the VOD service. We apologize once again to the people concerned and viewers who felt uncomfortable with this incident. In the future, we will be more careful in the production of the program so that this does not happen again.”
‘Master in the House’, broadcast on the 6th, was decorated as a’special meeting with a good company CEO’, and PowerfulX CEO Park In-cheol appeared. In the broadcast that day, CEO Park said, “I co-founded Pandora TV, first coined the idea for a video advertisement in 15 seconds, and received an offer to take over for 160 billion won from Google.”
However, afterwards, Pandora TV said, “Pandora TV was founded by CEO Kim Kyung-ik in 1999, and the video service started in October 2004. When I created the advertising business headquarters in May 2006, I joined Park In-cheol as Managing Director and worked for about 1 year and 8 months, and I am not a co-founder.” In addition, video advertisements were already released before Park In-cheol joined the company, and there was no fact that they had received an offer from Google.
As the controversy grew, CEO Park In-cheol posted an apology on his Facebook and PowerfulX homepage, saying, “I deeply apologize for causing concern to the viewers, SBS officials, and the cast members who have joined us.”
Regarding what was revealed even as a co-founder, CEO Park explained, “It means that we expanded our business together in earnest in the early days, rather than being a member of the first year of founding.” In addition, he explained, “It was a story that came from the process of meetings with various companies, but it was not the part that went to the specific acquisition process.”
