South Korea’s MBC news has replaced their news anchor, Moon Ji-ae after enormous pressure from public. Moon Ji-ae was criticised for laughing at the end of live news on Jan 7.

Frankly, it was just a small giggle (video below)… it was inappropriate but not bad enough to cost her the job if it was happening on a common day. Unfortunately though, the headline of the day was a warehouse blast that killed 40 in Icheon; the public was critical of the laughing incident because of the circumstances.

MBC spokesperson has responded that they won’t be reinstating Moon Ji-ae in near future for the news anchor post. Her works on other shows are however not affected at the moment.
