Producer Kim Tae Ho of Infinity Challenge apologized for the controversy that surrounded the attitudes of the audience in the Haha vs. Hong Chul special.

On January 29, PD Kim tweeted, ‘Whatever was pointed out about the attitudes of the audience that differed depending on whether they won or lost during the Haha vs. Hong Chul episode… actually went by unnoticed by the producers and hosts at the scene.’

He added, ‘We were just sorry that we didn’t get to return your love as much as we would’ve liked to because we prepared that event in order to thank our viewers.’

Previously on the same day, netizens had started debating over the content of an account written by a member of the audience who had been at the event that day. 3,400 viewers had been invited to the Haha vs. Hong Chul event that took place on January 19 in Seoul, and those who guessed correctly the winners for all of the 10 competitions were awarded a car as a prize.

A member of the audience uploaded a post that stated a few people cursed and shouted at the members onstage in their eagerness to win the car and ruined the experience, and netizens who read this account criticized the audience for acting in such a way.

PD Kim stated, "Those who came in for the event probably wanted to join in the filming for Infinity Challenge more than anything else. Some could’ve been aggressive in expressing their sadness at having been eliminated, but that would be our fault, because we prepared how the competition would take place, made them inconveniently have to change seats and feel the sadness of being eliminated."

He added, "The energy you sent them that day touched the hearts of the Infinity Challenge members. Haha and Hong Chul have learned, contrary to your concerns, that friends shouldn’t fight, and are getting along as good friends; no, hyung (big brother) and dongseng (little brother)."
