The production team behind the YouTube content for KBS's "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook" has recently released an apology for causing discomfort to Brave Girls, as well as the fans. Keep on reading to know what happened.
Brave Girls Guests on "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook" + Answers Questions from Fans
On March 19, Brave Girls appeared as guests on KBS's "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook." This was the first time that Yuna, Minyoung, Eunji, and Yoojung performed on the show as a four-member group. The program usually shares behind-the-scenes content following the appearances of idol groups.
Later that day, the program uploaded a behind-the-scenes video featuring Brave Girls. In the video, the members answered questions sent by fans. However, the show's recent Q&A segment was under fire when a rude question was asked to one of the Brave Girls members, specifically to Yuna.
Yuna was asked if she thinks that she is already an "ahjumma," since she is about to be 30 years old. The term "ahjumma" refers to a married or middle-aged woman, and is sometimes translated to "aunt," although it does not actually refer to a relative.
While Brave Girls Yuna laughed it off and responded to the question positively, fans were angered by the fact that the production team of "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook" let such a rude question get through.
Upon learning the situation, KBS edited out that part and apologized to the girl group and the fans. Their apology can be seen at the beginning of the behind-the-scenes video.

The team once again apologized for causing discomfort to Brave Girls and the viewers and remarked that they will pay more attention and take more caution in producing content in the future.
