Cable channel tvN’s comedy show “Saturday Night Live Korea 8” apologized Sunday to boy band B1A4 on behalf of the show’s hosts who had allegedly sexually harassed the boy band’s members.

“We recognize that (some of our hosts) misbehaved with our guests,” read a statement posted on the official Facebook page of the show. “We would like to apologize to B1A4 and its fans for causing concern over abusive actions.”

The show and its female hosts have been under fire since a clip posted Saturday, titled “Behind-the-Story of Casting B1A4,” showed B1A4 members being put in an awkward position.
