IOI will become hosts for 'SNL Korea' season 7!


On April 26, producer Kwon Sung Wook confirmed the news, and stated that he'd already held a meeting with the rookie girl group. He also commented, "The members' charms and talents were much greater than I'd expected. Next week's 'SNL Korea' is going to be a bit different than the usual. Since they are young girls mostly in their 10s, we are working to show their cute and bright image. We will make sure they only walk the flower path."

'SNL Korea' is known for its honest and provocative humor. The sweet image of IOI opposes the show's concept, but many fans are looking forward to their appearance, nonetheless. The episode hosted by IOI is scheduled to air on May 7!


Are you excited to see IOI on 'SNL Korea'?

    I love that IOI is gaining more and more popularity, but is it just me that feels like their entertainment is literally accepting all & any offers? Starting with that one alcohol commercial to endless photoshoots and upcoming entertainment shows... And now SNL Korea? Um. I love these girls and would appreciate it if they weren't a) overworked and b) sexualized. Yes, I know that SNL Korea will try to keep their girly, cute image but still... Somi is literally 15 (international age).

    Well, to put this in a much better way, I know that the seven other members are under the Korean age of nineteen, especially Pinky, who WON'T be underage for long because she'll be the international age of eighteen and the domestic Korean age of nineteen this December.  So anyway, since there are only four adult members in the group, i'm pretty sure that the show will make sure that the group's cute, lively, bubbly and bright image will be showcased well in order to avoid any possible controversies later on.  So um, yeah, we really don't need to worry about that.

If they dare to mess with nation producer, they better get the consequences. Seriously though. Don't ever think to mess with minors. We won't hold our wrath at all.

    I don't really like the idea of them going on SNL, well because it's SNL. I hope they can keep it clean at least for I0I because the humor, IMO, isn't good or appropriate for anyone, much less minors :/

    Hmm no, I'm not happy about it, SNL is always involved in a controversy. Well good luck, fighting IOI.
