As I took part of the weekend off to pretend to have a life and get sleep, MBC apparently fucked up. They posted up an official apology on Twitter for their drama ‘Man Who Dies To Live‘ for misrepresenting Islamic and Arabic culture.

The apology explained their position … sorta.
“Our intent was not to maliciously distort of comically depict Islamic or Arabic culture. We apologize for causing concern with our inappropriate depiction,” officials said, issuing the apology in Korean, English and Arabic.
So that didn’t go over well either.
I haven’t seen the drama yet, but just from the pictures I’ve seen, I … uh, I think I get the idea.
