Rapper Jessi recently made an appearance on the comedy variety show SNL Korea. Saturday Night Live Korea is a South Korean late-night live television sketch comedy and variety television program broadcast on general service cable channel tvN. It is adapted from the long-running American TV show Saturday Night Live on NBC. The weekly program premiered on December 3, 2011, and airs on Saturdays at 23:00. It concluded its fifth season on November 29, 2014.
Actor Son Ho Joon appeared as a rookie variety show star, filming in an amazon with three women who are introduced as natives of the area. Though Son Ho Joon doubted their authenticity, the VJ urged the actor to continue with the filming and look as natural as possible.
Filled with doubt, Son Ho Joon accepts the challenge and lets the three women greet him by rubbing their noses against his, and feed him with their fingers, all in hopes of making the scene look natural on film.
Later, Jessi appears on set and is introduced as a guest for the program earning jealous looks from the three native women, Son Ho Joon and Jessi exchange friendly greetings where Son Ho Joon first gushes, "I'm a fan." Jessi then replied back shyly, "I'm also a fan. You're so good looking."
As the episode progressed, one of the three women gets overly jealous seeing Jessi and Son Ho Joon at a close proximity with each other and proceeds to grab Jessi by the throat out of spite. In response to the outrageous situation, Jessi shouts back at the native woman and parodies her famous line from 'Unpretty Rapstar.' She says, "Oppa move out of my way. Wait, shut up! Listen to me you ugly."
