Saturday Night Live… in South Korea!

January 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

SNL in Korea?! Is the American brand of comedy and satire translatable into the Korean context?

While it’s only a few episodes in, viewer ratings have been pretty solid so far, although general consensus is that the first show was good, the second show… not as good.

If you’ve seen the show, what do you think? And if you haven’t… do you think it will be a success?

I haven’t seen an episode yet but will loop back here and post my thoughts if I do.
