Jang Young Nam's 'F20' Receives Flak and Gets Postponed
Jang Young Nam's "F20," which is the second runner for KBS2's special drama television cinema, receives flak and criticisms after promoting the hatred of schizophrenia, resulting in the drama's postponement.
Broadcast giant KBS made the final decision not to air the drama special "F20" after receiving a petition against the drama's screening by the Blue House Nation.
The melodrama "F20" follows the story of Ae Ran (Jang Young Nam), who wants to hide her son's mental illness by moving into another apartment with another mother Kyung Hwa (Kim Jung Young), who also has a son suffering from the same illness.
The production team of "F20" introduced the drama with the intention to break the prejudice against schizophrenia, however, 16 organizations, including the Korea Center for Independent Living for Mental Disorders, found that the title "F20" itself is a disease code for schizophrenia, urging the screening to be stopped.
Although the special drama was not screened on the television, "F20" was released through the cinema on October 6 and through the online legal streaming platform wavve on October 15.
