A televised clash between a South Korean kickboxing star and three Japanese comedians was supposed to be a bit of a laugh, but it ended up being anything but for the female fighter.
Known as 'Beautiful Fighter' to her fans, South Korean kickboxing star Lim Su-Jeong went on Japanese TV show 'Flames Sports Competition' to take on the men in what was supposed to be a â€˜mockâ€™ fight.
But instead Lim was beaten and seriously injured by the men, with the incident causing outrage in South Korea.
The three comedians were all wearing helmets and protective gear, while Lim wore just gloves.
But what is perhaps worse is that the comedians â€“ Toshiaki Kasuga, Hiroshi Shinagawa and Koji Imada are said to have backgrounds in martial arts as they kicked Lim down "as skillfully as pros."
Lim and her management team are reported to have demanded an apology from the showâ€™s producers while some have speculated that the comedians failed to hold back due to ongoing tension between Korea and Japan.
Whatever the case, there can be no excuse for such disgusting incident.
