On September 9, PD Kim Tae Ho of MBCs Infinite Challenge posted an apology on his personal Twitter account in lieu of the MBC producers strike that has resulted in cancellations of variety shows.
He wrote, The Infinite Challenge broadcast for today, September 9, will be substituted with the History and Hip Hop special. I sincerely apologize to the viewers. If you watch the film Criminal Conspiracy, you will understand why Infinite Challenge stopped and why MBC is on strike. We will return as an improved program. Thank you.
