Yoo Jae-seok’s Show Forced To Pay Money And Delete Scenes Due To Copyright Infringement

On October 22nd, the Seoul Central District Court ruled in favor of graffiti artist Shim Chan-yang in a lawsuit against MBC and PD Kim Tae-ho of the Yoo Jae-seok’s variety show “Hangout With Yoo.” The court ordered the defendants to pay 5 million won each to Shim and remove the scenes with his work from the broadcast. Otherwise, the broadcast will not be terminated.

The court ruled that the painting used as the background of the stage in the broadcast were of copyright infringement because the importance of the work and the exposure time was not small.

In particular, producer Kim Tae-ho and MBC rented a gallery cafe in Seoul in 2020 during the formation of the mixed group “SSAK3” with Yoo Jae-seok, Lee Hyo-ri, and Rain as members for the show. Shim’s large graffiti work was hung in the cafe, and the work was exposed for about 3 minutes and 30 seconds without the permission of writer Shim, the copyright holder, which led to a civil lawsuit.

Currently, the video in which the work appeared is still released online sites, including YouTube.
