Jang Jin Compares Diablo 3 to Chanel Handbags on ′SNLK′

In the first episode, Jang Jin compared the game Diablo 3 to a Chanel handbag, the designer brand item coveted by women.

He said, "They say that Diablo 3 rewrote gaming history just 24 hours after its release. I understand that there will be many women who don′t understand why Diablo is so popular. Just imagine that Chanel hadn′t been releasing bags for 12 years but then suddenly decided to release one."

He also pointed his finger at research results that showed people worry about the most trivial things.

Jang Jin said, "There was a recent study that said skinny jeans can hurt nerves in the body. I′m always scared when they say that our daily lives can be so dangerous. I′ve just decided to look at it this way. Our average life spans have actually increased from when we used to wear wide bell-bottoms or loose pants," drawing applause from the audience.

The first episode of the show′s second season featured Oh Ji Ho. He showed a side to himself never seen before through exaggerated acting and slapstick comedy.

TvN′s SNLK is the Korean version of America′s Saturday Night Live, which has been enjoying immense popularity for the past 37 years on NBC.
