"Saturday Night Live" is one of America's hottest comedy shows, and many people can admit that. South Korea took its own twist and launched "Saturday Night Live Korea" around a decade ago and received praise, and it is still one of the hottest comedy shows in South Korea!
The beauty of SNL is the fact that most of the segments aired are skits, and they can be centered around pretty much any topic the star wants to cover! Most recently, it has been centered around trending memes among the "MZ generation" (referring to millennials and generation-z), and viewers have loved the shorts that have been recently airing!
Another unique characteristic of SNL Korea is that it is only aired through Coupang Korea -- a streaming platform, so there is much more freedom of speech on these shows, something that is harder to see on traditional television.
