Parody of Chu Sarang on “Oot Cha Sa” Stirs Anger and Controversy

Although one may have no malice intention, certain boundaries should not be crossed. That seems to be the case for SBS’ comedy program, “Oot Cha Sa,” as one of the show’s corner seemed to have crossed the boundary between being humorous and being offensive.

On the January 10 broadcast of SBS’ “Oot Cha Sa” the comedy show introduced a new corner called ‘Cho Sarang,’ in which it followed characters ‘Cho Sung Hoon’ and his daughter ‘Cho Sarang.’ The new corner and the characters were obviously derived from Chu Sung Hoon and his daughter Chu Sarang, who currently star in the KBS variety show, “Superman Returns.”

Tablo recently posed for the fashion magazine Singles and shared stories about his “Superman Returns” experience.

When asked if it wasn’t hard for him to decide to reveal his daily life with his daughter on TV, Tablo answered, “I didn’t really have a big part in making that decision. After I broke my shoulder and was going to the surgery room, my manager told me about the program offer. But because I wasn’t in the right state of mind, I don’t even remember what I said. But Kang Hye Jung seemed to really enjoy the Chuseok special of ‘Superman Returns.’ So she told my manager, ‘If Tablo is going to do variety again sometime, I would like him to do something like that.’ So I think my manager listened to Hye Jung and made the decision.”
