tvN's 'SNL Korea 9' will no longer be airing live broadcasts.

On June 14, tvN revealed 'SNL Korea 9' will be aired live for the last time on July 8. Following a week break, episodes will be pre-recorded the day prior to airing, and pre-filmed episodes will be aired starting on July 22. It's said the change was made so the show can move along more smoothly.

In related news, Roy Kim is hosting the upcoming 'SNL Korea' episode on June 17.

    (smh) Not SNL anymore. I guess they're gonna have to start calling it "Saturday Night (Not) Live cheap knock off" now. It's bad enough that SNL here in America went downhill. Now these cowards are more interested in saving face and not offending anyone than being creative and relevant and... well... funny.

    I guess they didnt want to make it LIVE to that any mistakes or controversy can be edited off for broadcast, after all those "scandals" that happen on the show. some agency CEO may ask for their artiste parts to be Edited off if they feel was damaging to their image.

    Then it isn't SNL, and not just because it isn't live.

    Well if they moved it to another date, say Sunday, does it mean it cant be called Saturday night Live also? I guess, if you look at it that the NAME "Saturday Night Live" is a Brand Name and not because it has to Air on saturday, and at night and Live. then it has no impact. if you take it that SNL has to be ALWAYS on a Saturday, only air at NIGHT and LIVE broadcast. then you can think of it as an issue. I know some schools who name their school after a nearby street, and when they move to another area, some residents also complain, "Then they should be called XYZ Primary school if they aint on XYZ Street" but they cant change the name of the building or school just because it relocated.

    That's kinda my point. SNL is a brand... and this kinda action isn't the brand. (shrugs)

    Pretty much like the US version which hasn't been live for years.

    SNL does air live in the US. In the past, it only used to air live in Eastern and Central times while it was delayed for Mountain and Western times zones. But that changed earlier this year. I think that there might be a few pre-taped segments, but for the most part everything happens live.
