'SNL Korea' has come under fire for making fun of an actress' suffering from breast cancer.

On the 3rd's broadcast, the comedy show parodied 'Immortal Song' in one of their segments. One of the comedians dressed as actress Um Aeng Ran, and during the performance when the word 'chest' came out, the comedian said in a ridiculous tone, "I don't have a chest to hold."

Actress Um Aeng Ran was diagnosed with 2nd stage breast cancer last year, and had to remove one breast because of the cancer. After during an interview, she had said, "I have no feeling under one arm. I feel sad, angry, and down after a part of my body was removed."

Many viewers were shocked that 'SNL Korea' could make fun of someone's illness and surgery as such, especially since the actress had revealed how the surgery had made her felt. The controversial skit comes only a week after 'SNL Korea's molestation controversy, and many believe that this skit, combined with last week's issue, is just further proof that the show is using comedy as an excuse to be vulgar, and that it needs to shut down.

Definitely shut this show down. Between the comedian groping those guys and this new controversy this show is a mockery and needs to be taken off the air permanently.

I have never commented on any SNL articles before but this is too much. My mother died because of cancer, my father is a cancer survivor. I took care of them while they were sick and it was no joke at all!! They have to deal with their fear, their pain, insecurities and it's very low to make jokes about them, even I as the caretaker were exhausted emotionally. Even though they lost a part of their body, cancer survivors are the strongest people I've ever met, both mentally and physically. None of them deserve this tasteless joke for what they've been through.

SNL Korea has gone to far . They need to be cancelled  shame on anyone that supports this show. They are dispicable to make fun of someone who has Cancer . They have no morals or smarts , anyone thinking Cancer is funny has never had to see a friend or loved one go through the horrrors of Cancer Treatment . Apparently SNL Korea thinks that some one vomiting constantly and continues pain and cannot eat or barely walk or even go the bathroom is funny? How disgusting SNL Korea is for laughing and making a joke of someones suffering from Cancer . My dad  and cousin and grandmother died from Cancer  and just a month ago my mom in law and last year my best friend died from Cancer . It is no joke what Cancer patients have to endure the pain . SNL Korea should be discontinued , between them molesting male idols and now this I hope it is cancelled  they have gone to far !
