Comedian Hwang Hyun Hee goes under fire for asking if TVXQ are coming back as a 5-member group

Comedian Hwang Hyun Hee is under fire for his comments about TVXQ.

He was on CeLuv.TV's 'Issue Clock' on March 14 as an MC, introducing the idols who will be coming back in March. TVXQ was one of them, and Hwang Hyun Hee asked, "Are all five TVXQ members coming out?" The other MC, flustered, asked, "Are you asking seriously?"

He then responded, "Isn't TVXQ 5 members?" When he was told that TVXQ was a duo, he corrected himself to say that the two TVXQ members were coming back.

Fans were angry at the comment, since TVXQ have been a duo since 2009. Viewers pointed out, "How can an MC about celebrity news not know basic entertainment information?", and pointed out that his wording implied that he in fact knew that JYJ had left TVXQ, and that he was attempting to be funny.

What do you think about his comments?
