The employees of MBC who are on strike, alongside a representative, stated in a news report that “‘Infinity Challenge’ will air normally until this September 2. The filmed material we have so far is only for this week’s broadcast.”   ‘I Live Alone’ is suffering from the same situation with no new content filmed or available past September 1st.
Viewers are concerned and wonder if the shows will simply take a small leave of absence, replay old episodes or be canceled altogether. According to various media outlets and reporters providing coverage on the situation, a vote cast by the MBC branch of the  National Media Labor Union  this past August 29, 93.2% of participating MBC employees said yes to launching a mass general strike in September, meaning every employee will cease to carry out their duties without leaving any working hands behind for necessary labor.
