Before After canceled due to disputes

捲入裝修糾紛 「全能住宅改造王」停播

· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

Hosted by entertainer George Tokoro, Japan’s long-running TV program “Before After” was responsible for the renovation of hundreds of old houses during its 14-year run. Originally, the program was going to make changes to its format next year, but then the TV station suddenly announced it was to cancel the show.

由藝人所喬治主持的日本長壽節目「全能住宅改造王」,播出十四年,幫不少老屋重新裝修大變身。該節目原定明年改版,但電視台卻臨時喊卡。

Apart from difficulty finding construction companies to participate in the show, the program’s surprise cancelation apparently resulted from a number of disputes over house renovations. The station, unable to pay compensation of 29 million yen (NT$7.9 million), was left with no option but to cancel.

據傳,該節目突然收攤,除了建商難找外,還捲入多起裝修糾紛。電視台無力負擔日幣兩千九百萬(約新台幣七百九十萬)賠償費,迫使節目宣布結束。

“Before After” was one of the most popular Japanese reality TV shows in Taiwan, and could count President Tsai Ing-wen as one of its fans. Inspired by the show, the Hsinchu City Government launched a similar house remodeling project in September this year, encouraging owners of houses over 20 years old to apply for subsidies.

「改造王」是台灣人最喜歡的日本節目之一,也是蔡英文總統最愛看的實境節目。受到該節目的啟發,新竹市政府今年九月推出類似的改造計劃,鼓勵二十年以上的老屋變身,提出申請改裝補助。
