B1A4 addressed the recent apologies from 'SNL Korea' and cast member Lee Se Young after fans expressed outrage at the group's mistreatment.  Videos had popped up of the boys being grabbed by the genitalia by some of the female comedians.


Regarding the apologies, WM Entertainment stated on November 28, "We find it regretful that such an unexpected issue such as this arose before the boys' comeback.  However, we received sufficient apologies from Lee Se Young and the SNL production crew, so we want to focus a bit more on their comeback promotions because it's their first studio album in a long time.  We will show a better image through their 'A Lie' promotions.  We apologize because it seems like we concerned a lot of people though that was not our intention. The agency will be more careful so that something like this does not happen again."

Do you believe the issue has now been resolved or there still are problematic issues about the whole thing?

    I don't think any of this would take away and overshadow their Comeback. If anything I think this would be a good boost to their Comeback. It would draw fans to them and their Supportive Fans I think makes The Boys feel happy and glad they have the Fans sticking up for them and fighting for them. I just hope the Boys are okay and not traumatised by it. But I guess they want to put this behind them and go positive from this day forward. I still think SNL is getting off the hook too easy.

    i think it was a big shock for them, but at this point they want to focus people on their music and their comeback. i mean, its important to discuss these issues of course but we gotta remember the whole reason they were on the show. lets stay positive and be cheering them on with their comeback!!!!

    I get that there's an element of their culture about not causing controversy, but when someone attacks you, they're the ones responsible, full stop.

    I don't think they should be apologizing for being the victim. I mean I understand they want things to quiet down and focus on their actual music but whoever wrote this is kind of enabling victim-blaming.

    If B1A4 and their company accept the apology that's fine with me, but I want SNL Korea to apologize to every boy group that was assaulted and embarrassed by these perverted and shameful women, until then I do not consider this issue resolved.

    Definitely the person who wrote this didnt got his nuts grab forcefully.  An apology after you got sexually assaulted, lets see how you the one from the agency will feel. These joung man werent protected and has to keep working after this.      The show must go on!!!!Hopefully something will happen to correct this conduct with other agency that really care about their artists, this one just throw the towel!
