It seems like instead of giving laughter to every viewers, “Saturday Night Live” Korea made a big mistake that angers a lot of Girls Generation fans! Read on!
Fans of Korean girl group Girls Generation took one of SNL Korea comedy sketch episode as a very serious matter as the show boldly burned and stepped on the girl’s photos and albums on national TV.
According to Allkpop, on the show’s October 10 episode, SNL Korea tried to put some comedy out of the music industry’s two rival girl group, SNSD and Wonder Girls.
Based on the report, the show created an episode called “The 5th Army President” where the “I Feel You” singers, WG, acted as military generals who obtained their authority due their popularity among soldiers.
Following the other skits from the comedians, the actors of that certain episode were then shown happily listening to SNSD’s songs until one of the soldiers found them. After that scene, the soldiers can be seen crying their hearts out because their beloved group’s photos and albums were thrown on the ground. The soldier-in-charge even stepped and burned the items as they viewed it as a possible threat under the fictional Wonder Girls military.
Though there were viewers who found it hilariously funny, All K-Pop reported that many of SNSD’s fans (SONES) expressed their anger over the episode as it seems like SNL were saying that the only reason why “I Gotta Boy” singers got the throne from WG was only because the latter left for America.
In return, SNL Korea receives protest from SONES:
