Is it reality or scripted? Well, it appears to be the latter to an extent after some of the scripts for SBS Good Sunday Family Outing reality program was uploaded to the internet by netizens and becoming a hot topic of discussion.
The December issue of the in-house magazine for the Korean TV and Radio Writers Association had apparently published the scripts for Family Outing episode which had Park Hae Jin as guest. The scripts were highly detailed to the point that it not only had lines for each cast member, but also included the specific game settings, how each member address each other, their reactions, expressions, positioning, etc. The detailed script seems to be making a mockery of the reality setting that the program was set out to be from the beginning.
Netizens were split at this latest finding. Some though that this was a reality program. But they were really disappointed to know that it was actually going according to script. But others felt that even if its a reality program, a base script is needed for things to flow, so it’s not really important.
When quizzed, the Family Outing PD expressed, “The scripts are just basic guidelines for the members and also for the program to flow smoothly. Whatever happens in the process is purely up to their own imagination.”
