Naked News Update: "'Naked News' Shuts Up Shop

Earlier, I wrote of a new Naked News Channel in Korea. Well, according to the Chosun Ilbo, it is no more:
"The Korean version of the topless TV franchise "Naked News," which was launched on June 23, declared a halt of service on Thursday" ("'Naked News' Shuts Up Shop" : Chosun Ilbo).
Interestingly, the article reports that "Sources in the industry say management decided to pull out as the channel has [had] just 30,000 paid subscribers." Perhaps, once the country unifies, the country will be large enough to support eccentric businesses such as these.
