Block B, Kpop boy band known for songs like “Jackpot” and “Very Good,” also had their genitals grabbed when they appeared on SNL Korea. And there’s video to prove it.

This new video is very similar to videos that showed B1A4 and INFINITE receiving the same treatment when they appeared on SNL Korea.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, SNL Korea provoked the anger of B1A4 and INIFINITE fans when videos surfaced online showing their idols getting their privates grabbed by female staff members at SNL.

Kpop fans reacted to the Block B video with the same disgust that they did with the B1A4 and INFINITE videos. Lots of them are making the point that if these idols were women then this would never have happened.
@Koreaboo IDOLS ARE HUMANS!! treat them with respect! they give us so much.

@Koreaboo Sexual Assault isn’t something that should be taken LIGHTLY. They should be fired and even charged or sued.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, B1A4 received an apology for their treatment from SNL Korea. However, INFINITE was not mentioned. There was also no mention of Block B in the apology.
Here’s what the apology said, as translated by The Kpop Herald.
“Hello, this is ‘SNL Korea’. We apologize to the B1A4 members and their fans about the violent actions against the hosts B1A4 in the video that was released on Facebook on the 26th. It was an unfitting action toward the hosts, and we will be careful that this does not happen again. We apologize once again to B1A4 members and their fans.”
This isn’t the first time that SNL Korea has come under fire for its “comedic” decisions.
As All Kpop reports, when Korean television host and entertainer Eric Nam was asked to portray Gandhi in a skit, he declined, stating that he did not want to make fun of the historical figure. They also asked him to depict an openly gay Korean celebrity but he declined to do that as well and instead offered his own ideas for how to make the skit funny.

There’s no word yet on whether SNL plans to respond to the news of this new groping video popping up or if they will issue apologies to INFINITE and Block B. There have been claims that all male guest hosts are groped in a similar fashion so there’s a chance that more videos can surface in the coming weeks.
