1. [+770, -7] I'm sick and tired of it, I haven't watched TV in 9 years because of it

2. [+562, -86] Sick and tired. It's a joke that people like Kang Ho Dong, Yoo Jae Suk, and Lee Young Ja are still dominating the TV shows and earning hundreds of thousands an episode.. We have got to clean out the broadcast industry..

3. [+599, -170] I threw out my TV, I'm just sick of it. Sick of seeing celebrities acting up everywhere. Ham So Won and her young husband. Lee Hwi Jae's family. Park Narae and her 'I Live Alone' crew. Kang Ho Dong, Kim Ho Chul. Lee Sang Min. All they do is eat all day like pigs. And finally, all the male trot singers who are on TV all day long. Can't stand Jang Min Ho. So sick of all the trot songs being milked over and over. Then Rain, Lee Hyori, and Yoo Jae Suk. SIck of them too. I'm already tired of having to stay home all the time but these variety shows aren't helping either.

4. [+219, -4] Too many of these reality shows have also been proven to be fake as well

5. [+216, -8] These shows may feel real but they're all staged anyway

6. [+179, -1] I don't know when this all started but it's become the norm to watch celebrities joking on one TV show, watch their private home lives on another TV show, tetc... On my days off, I'm basically watching celebrities all day on TV. It's much more fun to just throw on a documentary or watch animal planet.

7. [+119, -0] I just change the channel when it's about a celebrity's private life again. Why should I care about their life?

8. [+102, -0] When you flip through the channels, you see celebrities raising their kids, cooking, singing trot, auditioning.. now you even see them on the morning weather channel. All the same content, just different faces. 

9. [+100, -5] Tired of Yoo Jae Suk, Kang Ho Dong, Park Myung Soo, Lee Hyori... These are people who were famous back when I was a teenager and yet TV shows are still milking them for 20 years. Why aren't we discovering new talents? Why are we letting the same people milk the system for decades? And please stop with the shows with cameras in celebrity houses. It's all so staged and fake.

10. [+81, -0] This article hit the nail on the head. All the TV shows lately seem to be about everything celebrities do except when they're asleep. All just vehicles for more PPL and ads.

11. [+59, -0] Once someone becomes a celebrity, they try and drag all their family into it, up to their distant cousins, and then try to pass their fame down to their children... This just feels wrong, especially when starving actors can never get the same opportunities just because they don't come from such families. We need to make sure a proper audition system is set up so that this doesn't get abused.

12. [+30, -0] It's basically become a celebrity's playground. They're on every TV show touring restaurants, passing jokes, playing games, raising their children, all the while making millions along the way. Why watch that?
