Kim’s proposal seemed very romantic and it certainly had the result he intended, as far as his relationship was concerned. However, millions of viewers were angry because Kim used the public airwave for private use.
Angry viewers left notes on the show’s Internet bulletin board. Some said that the couple’s kiss was inappropriate because the show aired at prime time on a Sunday. Others said that the couple treated the viewers like their bridesmaids.
Kim finally surrendered, and posted a note on his girlfriend’s Web site, saying it was all his fault. “I take all the blame,” Kim wrote. “Please do not attack my girlfriend.”
