Comedienne Hong Hyun Hee Directly Responds To Sam Hammingtons Comment About Blackface Controversy

In response to Sam Hammingtons angry post regarding the recent blackface skit on SBSs Comedy Hunter, comedienne Hong Hyun Hee shared some of her own thoughts on the situation.

On April 21, Hong Hyun Hee, who appeared as the main character of the controversial skit, posted a message on her Facebook, saying, Sam HammingtonI was going to say this to you through text, but I decided to post this online because you said things in a problematic way. You made a generalization that I was belittling African Americans just by the way I dressed up, but that means [silly] characters like Young Gu and Maeng Gu would be making fun of autistic children. There also used to be a Korean comedy act called Dark Performance that received love for a really long time. Was that making fun of African Americans as well?

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Cherry Blossoms, Again"

Jang Beom-june was the leading singer/songwriter for Busker Busker, an independent rock band from Cheonan. Today he...still writes and performs music, just as a solo artist. Jang Beom-june owes his presence in South Korean musical culture largely to one song- "Cherry Blossom Ending" which appears every spring in the South Korean music charts. But aside from that, Jang Beom-june also writes and performs other songs. Sometimes he even does covers.

And that's pretty much it. "Cherry Blossoms, Again" was financed in part by MBC, so this is a documentary in the television mold, where the focus is on being purely informational rather than making any kind of grander artistic or philosophical point. Jang Beom-june lives a normal life. Apparently he's even married with a daughter. The wife we never get to see, even if Jang Beom-june begs her to come home early at one point.
