However, if they want it, they should have to turn it on -- not the other way around. It should be OFF by default.
You have to know that this setting works exactly the other way around, meaning what you described is completely false. If you never had an LG TV in the past 10 years then it's understandable
From this post
: this setting actually works in a reverse way.
- if it's On: it doesn't touch the 23p/24p material and displays every frame on its 120Hz panel 5 times
- if it's Off: it results in judder by doing 2:3 pulldown with 23p/24p material -> getting 60p -> then doubling the framerate to reach 120Hz. It also increases the input lag this time. It can be used with 60Hz broadcast to do inverse-telecine to get 24p.
So, if you use 23/24p content then switch it On: meaning video fps will be untouched.

If you have Netflix, go to the 4minute mark of the movie RED where there is a slow panning shot.
At the end of the day the viewer has to chose between stutter or judder. The comprise is TrueMotion at low settings, but then you get into territory of soap opera effect and artifacts showing up, which is worse than the stutter.
I've gotten used to the stutter after a few weeks but certain shots like slow pans are still brutal.

I understand that it can be an issue for you. But my point is (and that's why I quoted MrKiller's reply above) that if you watch 23/24p content with it On for couple of months then your mind will get used to the technically correct setting (similarly if you watch calibrated screens for a while). I wouldn't watch anything anymore that has judder, after 15 years watching them (all LG TVs) without it
In summary, we have to distinguish between judder
: read through these 2 pages and watch those videos as well.
Rephrasing the tagline of After Earth
: Stutter is real, Judder is a choice.
So, it's disabled on purpose with certain contents: in this way the user can't set it to a technically incorrect way.
mentioned, it can have its own use cases but it's so rare that an average user won't need it ever.
Just try to use it with the On settings for couple of months after that you won't be able to go back to Off setting
