Sister's Slam Dunk (Hangul언니들의 슬램덩크; RREonnideurui Seullaemdeongkeu) is a South Korean reality show that aired every Friday on KBS 2TV from April 8 to December 2, 2016. The show's first season featured an all-female cast consisting of Ra Mi-ran, Kim Sook, Hong Jin-kyung, Min Hyo-rin, Jessi and Tiffany, and followed their attempts at fulfilling each cast member's dream using a budget of ₩2,196,000 or approximately $2,000.[1]

Shoot! Shoot!, Hello! We are Unnies!", with an emphasis on the basketball shooting motion while saying "Shoot". Their official fandom object is a denim-colored balloon.

Controversy[edit]

On August 14, 2016, (the day before Korean Liberation Day), Tiffany posted photos on Instagram and, a day later, onto Snapchat that included the current Japanese flag and the Rising Sun design which was part of a Snapchat geo-filter respectively while performing in Tokyo as a part of SM Town Live World Tour V. Although she had taken down her Snapchat post within minutes after posting, she faced substantial criticism, and she deleted the Instagram images soon after as well.[15] The program received an outpouring of complaints demanding for the show to remove Tiffany. On August 18, 2016, the program announced that after discussing the situation with S.M. Entertainment, the decision to withdraw was reached. The official statement reads: "As a result of the discussion, we have the final decision for Tiffany to leave the show, in consideration of what we agree to be the effect that the controversy had on the country's sentiments."[16] However, in December 2016, Tiffany reunited with the other cast members at the 15th KBS Entertainment Awards, where they opened the ceremony by performing "Shut Up".[17]
