Controversial comedians eye TV comeback

Comedian Tak Jae-hoon and Jang Dong-min announced their return to TV despite past controversies.

Cast members of the new Channel A entertainment program, “From Today! We Are C.G.B,” held a press conference on Friday at Digital Media City in Sangam-dong, western Seoul. The show centers on the college campus lives of the cast members.

Jang was recently the subject of criticism due to derogatory remarks he made concerning the children of divorced parents. His remarks cost him his spot on several TV shows.

“I am sorry for all the recent troubles I caused,” the comedian said in the press conference. “I would like to show a different side of myself in this show.”

The show will air on Saturdays at 11 p.m.
