On April 19, SBS posted clips of the 188th episode of Comedy Hunter on YouTube. However, one clip in particular received more attention.
The video, which featured the segment Legend Match (tentative title), contained a description that said Hong Hyun Hees failed makeup – How are we expected to bear it? In the sketch, Hong Hyun Hee plays a character who is preparing for a comedian performance test despite her fathers disapproval. When her mother brings her out to see him, Hong Hyun Hee appears in blackface. While previous episodes of the sketch usually feature the comedienne wearing silly outfits such as a cyclops costume, this weeks segment shocked international fans for its portrayal.
