Before “SNL Korea,” the international trio gained rising popularity on Korean entertainment shows. Corbineau is currently engaged in a popular reality show “Roommate Season 2” on SBS.

Otani built an acting-entertainment career through the film “Roaring Currents” (2014) and MBC’s entertainment show “I Live Alone.” Snoeks also gained high popularity through the television talk show “Abnormal Summit,” currently airing on JTBC.

The trio will join the Saturday show starting Oct. 25 at 9.50 p.m.
