Comedian Lee Se Young will be taking a break from her position on 'SNL Korea 8'. 


On December 1, the producers of 'SNL Korea 8' announced, "After carrying out a deep discussion with Lee Se Young, we decided to respect her decision to take some time off for reflection. As a result, Lee Se Young will be taking a break from 'SNL Korea 8'."

Lee Se Young's departure is a direct consequence of the show's recent sexual harassment controversy involving male idols. Some of the latest reports also claimed that she may be facing police investigation in the near future.

    Why is she the only one being punished? Because one video showed her celebrating and saying "I got them all!" PRETTY SURE we saw multiple women from the cast engaging in the very same activity as her in more than one of the videos. SNL is still trying to sweep this under the rug with minimal damage, which is complete bullsh*t. The only reason they're only punishing her is because people are getting a bit more heated about her in that one video for saying what she said (I believe it was the one with Infinite, but I can't remember for certain and I honestly don't want to watch any of them again because I feel so sorry for the young men involved). But all the people involved should suffer consequences, including anyone (male OR female) who helped to orchestrate it or just stood by and did nothing. In my opinion, they're all guilty by association, either by directly engaging in the sexual assault or by standing by and laughing as their colleagues did it. Time for an overhaul SNL Korea!

    I distinctly recall from the video there were MULTIPLE women doing the crotch grabbing. Not just lee se young. So why is she the only one facing the consequences? Seems unfair to me. Also, is this not a sexual assault case? Why was she JUST let go?

    I think it's because people are getting so mad at her specifically for the one video where she celebrated and yelled something like "I got them all!" referring to the fact that she was able to touch all the idols. I don't agree with it at all, I think it's absolute crap because EVERYONE who did this should be put on hiatus, or if we had our way, fired for what they've done/been doing for some time now.
