Paek Ji Yeon"s Talk Show Disappointing

Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation(MBC)'s new talk show 'White Night with Paek Ji Yeon' disappointed its audience.
MBC avowed that this talk show will be a high quality program, far from the usual star oriented entertainment program, when it launched three weeks ago.
However the audience have found no difference from other talk shows. The third show broadcasted on May 24 was about the Miss Korea Contest, which Paek also hosted. But we could find neither fresh style nor insightful stories on it and even Miss Paek looked more like a star than a former MBC News anchor.
The staff said, 'The program hasn't settled on its format yet.' Without serious effort, the audience is likely to see another meaningless entertainment program.
