'SNL Korea' Pokes Fun At EXO's Sasaeng Fans
By Staff Writer | October 06, 2013 08:28 PM EDT
One of the hottest groups in K-Pop these days is twelve-member boy band EXO. Even though they only debuted last year, they have quickly become one of the most dominant groups in the genre - and naturally with all that fame comes, for better or worse, a very large fanbase.

When EXO is not climbing to the top of the music charts, making their rounds of music programs and promoting their new songs, they are constantly in battle with their incredibly over-zealous fans.
A hot topic of controversy for the past several months, EXO has seen their fans do some pretty whacky things in an attempt to get closer to the idols' personal lives.
From getting themselves banned from live tapings of Inkigayo, to breaking and entering and even crashing weddings, it seems like some members of the EXO fandom will stop at nothing to stalk and invade the personal lives of their beloved stars.
And in the long-standing tradition of Saturday Night Live, the show's cast members take hot issues such as this, and turn them into poignant, and hilarious, social commentary for the entertainment of everyone.
This weekend's episode of SNL Korea did just that, poking fun at EXO's sasaeng (stalker) fans.
In the skit, the actors donned Smurf costumes and when a singer by the name of "XO" came to the Smurf village to perform at a wedding, a crazed fan with a camera knocked over the bride injuring her and went on to assault another wedding guest, thus ruining the ceremony.
Obviously a sensitive issue for the real-life bride and groom, as well as Baekhyun and the other EXO members, feelings are pretty mixed among netizens and fans as to the appropriateness of the parody.
Yes, it is a sensitive matter, but isn't that the point of SNL?
Take a look at the clip of the show below and let us know what you think in the comments section.
