So, this is a story that I have heard on TV from a famous Korean comedian when he was first starting out in the entertainment business. I do not remember the comedian's name but only the story.
A well known comedian, lets call him Steve was telling a story about his rookie days on trying to break into the entertainment industry.
He took a job as a reporter for a small production company and one of his assignments was to go to a Japanese high school where it was reported that many students commit suicide in a well
behind the school.
Since it was a small production company, they could only afford to send Steve and the cameraman/director. They went to the school early Saturday morning so they would not disturb the students.
Upon arrival, Steve felt uneasy and had a feeling that he was being watched. Every instinct and gut feeling told him to get out of there.
But because it was his first gig, he decided to exhibit professionalism and fearlessness.
He pushed forward and completed his report on the well. Upon completion, the cameraman/director told Steve, "We need more footage.
Why don't you go down in the well and I will record you speaking from down there? We can tie a rope around you so that you won't fall in."
It was at this moment, all professionalism went out the window and Steve said "No. I am not going down there!".
They argued for over 10 min until Steve had enough and decided to return to his hotel room.
The next morning, on their flight back to Korea, Steve was still quite angry and shaken. He asked the cameraman/director, "Don't you think you were a bit harsh asking me to go down there?"
To which the cameraman/director replied, "What are you talking about? I never asked you to go down there..."
He had no recollection of that conversation whatsoever.
