Host Shin Dong Yup represented the cast during the ending of the show. He said, "We're speaking to you now because we did not want anything to affect MAMAMOO negatively. On behalf of the cast, I apologize to everyone who was uncomfortable and disappointed during this past week. The actions were wrong, and so were our thoughts. We want to say that it's not one person's fault, but all our faults," referring to Lee Se Young.

Tak Jae Hoon added, "I sincerely extend an apology. I'm sorry," and Shin Dong Yup closed, "Your hearts must be heavy, but despite our sense of shame, we'll see you next week."

    i think a lot of them are truly sorry, but its like...???? don't they get that they need their jokes and material to be more careful after this kinda thing? the writers are the ones who should be fired. i think the show is still a good, funny show tho. maybe snl just needs a break where they really reconsider some staff members and let others go because some people working there i guess just keep making things worse

    Im sure the action was not scripted. Btw its the job of the Director to overseas everything incl the script. Since this was not the first time .. thats means its the mistake of all the staff who knew it was wrong n had the power to stop it but did nothing.

    Not even an apology is enough! Either cancel the show or investigate all of the staff members who were involved! Stop using Lee Se Young as a sheild SNL! Take responsibilities and man the fuck up! -_-

    exactly! when i saw the video, it is not just lee se young who did it. many comedians did that. so why just put blame on one person.

    Wow. After the apology comes reflection period (aka disappear from TV) to show sincerity. Be a man, SNL, be like Gil and NHC who reflected for 2 freaking years.

    Okay but it wasn't only B1A4, but also Infinite, Block B and likely others. They should apologize to all of their faces and the show should face consequences just like LSY is going through right now.
