Dangerous reality series Star Diving Show Splash! has been cancelled due to safety concerns after yet another celebrity participant incurred injuries, a spokesman confirms to IdolWow!.
MBC announced the decision today, September 12, after comedian Lee Bong Won struck his face during the show’s training sessions and consequently had to leave.
The show has been stirring sizeable controversy regarding the safety of its cast members. Actress Clara, singer IVY, TV presenter Sam Hammington, Super Junior’s Kangin and actor Lee Hoon were already among the casualties to have sustained injuries prior to 50-year-old Lee. Hammington is still wearing a neck brace after sustaining neck injuries during a previous taping.
