A court on Friday ordered broadcaster MBC to correct its report on President Yoon Suk Yeol’s remarks caught on a hot mic during his visit to the United States in 2022.

The Seoul Western District Court issued the order in a lawsuit filed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs alleging that the video subtitle of MBC’s report on Yoon’s informal exchange with then Foreign Minister Park Jin in New York in September 2022 was incorrect.

Yoon’s remarks, which experts say are difficult to discern due to background noise, were subtitled by MBC to make it sound like the president was referring to U.S. President Joe Biden. Yoon’s office later clarified that he had made no mention of Biden, expressing concern about damaging the alliance with reports different from the facts.

The foreign ministry launched the lawsuit against MBC in December 2022 after failing to resolve the differences at the Press Arbitration Commission.

The court ruled that the host of MBC’s main evening newscast should read the correction statement related to Yoon’s remarks once at normal speed, with its title and text displayed on screen, as soon as the court’s correction order is finalized.

If the defendant does not fulfill the order, it will have to pay the plaintiff 1 million won ($760) a day after the due date expires, the court said. (Yonhap)
