On 2 April, Korean media outlet Dispatch broke a story about Kim Saeng-min harassing two female staff members at a party in 2008. One of the afflicted staff members received an apology in 2008, whilst the other spoke about trying to raise the issue, but being slowly pushed out of the program by other staff members, before she eventually quit her job as a staff member on the program.
Upon being contacted by Dispatch regarding the story, Kim Saeng-min apologized to the former staff member, and later released an official apology through his agency. He then withdrew from all of his current TV and radio programs, including Omniscient Interfering View.
During the 5 May broadcast, the show used a censored clip from MBC News coverage of the Sewol Ferry disaster with the headline "Lee Young-ja makes shocking confession while eating fish cakes". This sparked a controversy, as users of the controversial online community Ilbe had used the term "fish cakes" to refer to the victims of the Ferry disaster. Both the production staff and the MBC president immediately apologized, and launched an internal investigation of the issue. The program was temporarily halted, and went off-air for 7 weeks before returning to air on 30 June 2018.
During the 20 July broadcast, the show display a subtitle notice to alert the audiences that "the production team does not ask for money with the filming". During the recent production, someone has been masquerading as a supporter for money and the production is requesting to avoid, and be careful as the production crew will never ask for money.
