Smart Eye: The Trade Descriptions Ordinance! Beware of False or Misleading Trade Descriptions!
Salesperson: Let me introduce this Superb Entertainment Package to you! We have “Drama Series Channel” for Korean drama only.
“A Beauty…Actually” will be exclusively broadcasted to you!
Sign the 2-year contract and enjoy our discount on monthly fee! No more dilly-dallying!
Mom: Exclusive Korean drama? Okay! I will sign it!
Super: A week later…
Mom: What?
“A Beauty…Actually” is now on “Popular Soap Channel” only? That means I can’t watch it? But the salesman promised it was exclusive on “Drama Series Channel” when I signed the contract!
It’s a total deceit!
