News via soompi.com

SBSs survivor format reality show  Law of the Jungle  is swept up in yet another controversy and this time, its because one of the shows cast members was caught holding a cigarette during broadcast.

Airing footage of someone holding a cigarette without a mosaic or blur is a problem but the bigger issue is that the particular scene where Oh Jong Hyuk was seen with a cigarette was when the cast members were trying to make a fire from scratch. This led viewers to think, If someone is able to smoke a cigarette, why couldnt they make a fire, causing doubts over the authenticity of the program to rise up once again.

On August 4, the Law of the Jungle staff made an official statement through the SBS homepage by saying, Airing the footage of a cast member holding a cigarette on the August 2 broadcast was an accident. This is an editing mistake and we give our deepest apologies to the viewers, and We will be more careful so this doesnt happen again.
