The Chosun Ilbo reports that after a Misuda panelist said that “short men are losers”, netizens got riled up and posted tons of internet comments. Some said that her comments must have provoked Kim Jong-il into having North Korean ships stray into Southern waters soon after the episode aired.
Japanese netizens apparently got all upset as well. She later apologized on her Cyworld page. Oh, and it seems the Chosun so fears a defamation lawsuit that it refused to identify the panelist and placed a mosaic over her image…. after it was broadcast all over the nation.
