The Minyeodeului Suda Video Clip

Do read Oranckay's post about all of this.

I'm sure everyone is well aware of the controversy caused by the KBS2 program "Minyeodeului Suda", when, during a performance by an African-American woman, comedian Cheon Myeong-hun pranced around the stage wearing a rasta wig and began chanting “sikameos, sikameos,”, which, as the Marmot tells us, is a reference to a black-face routine made famous by another Korean comedian. For those not in the know, The Marmot's post about it can be found here, while the Metropolitician's reaction (with many links to his previous posts putting the event in context) can be found here. He also has a petition demanding an apology from the network which can be signed here.

I tracked down the program on emule and edited it down to the essential 1:12 clip showing the performance of the song and uploaded it to Youtube. Here it is (you'll need to turn the sound up, for some reason):
