This past weekend SNL Korea parodied Counter-Strike and featured appearances from top StarCraft players.
Tipster Landon points out that there's a reason why Hong and Lim are appearing together in this faux Counter-Strike set against the Imjin War, which was the Japanese invasion of Korea in the late 16th century.
This is a word play of sorts as the two players used to be called "Lim-JinRok" and were great rivals. Imjin, Lim-jin, geddit?
The message at the end is a clear reference to all the political nonsense going on recently in South Korea regarding gaming.
This isn't the first time YellOw appeared on SNL. He was in a previous SNL Korea skit, which you can watch below. It's a prequel of sorts to this latest sketch.
