Welcome to another edition of SB Week in Review! Heres all the news you might have missed this week.

Laughing Legend MatchHong Hyun-hee officially apologized for the much criticized black-face sketch aired on the SBS show last week. The show has already apologized for the skit, but it all seems to be too little, too late especially with celebrities like Sam Okyere commenting on the offensive nature of the skit.

The woman who accused actor Uhm Tae-woong of sexual assault has been sentenced to two and half years in prison, following the judges ruling that the sex between Uhm and the massage parlor worker was consensual. The owner of the massage parlor was also charged with prostitution, blackmail, and filming with a hidden camera. Following the original accusations, Uhm Tae-woong paid a 1 million won fine last November for soliciting prostitution.

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another edition of SB Week in Review! Heres your news:

InfiniteWoohyun revealed that a shoulder injury sustained during the 2014 ISAC is permanent, with the damaged cartilage expected to result in pain in later life. There are many tales of injury caused by ISAC, but to hear of the consequences of this particular injury is especially saddening.

BulldokHyeongeun has left the group, citing health reasons. The rapper, who had gained attention for her performance on Produce 101, had recently been involved in a controversy involving BTS, where she was accused of not using the appropriate honorifics when talking about the senior group during a livestream. BTS fans were also unimpressed by claims, relayed by Hyeongeuns friend, that V had athletes foot or similar foot-related health issue due to his choice of footwear. Some have speculated that this was the reason behind Hyeongeuns departure, while others claim the health reason is legitimate.
