BoA reveals her first impression of Yang Hyun Suk
On the May 29th episode of KBS2 TV‘s ‘Win Win‘, BoA, who was on the judging panel of SBS‘ ‘K-Pop Star‘, revealed her first impressions of fellow judges J.Y. Park and Yang Hyun Suk.
BoA revealed, “I saw J.Y. Park and Yang Hyun Suk for the first time during the first recording of ‘K-Pop Star’. J.Y. Park told me to call him ‘oppa’, but Yang Hyun Suk told me to call him ‘President’, which made me feel a bit uncomfortable… But after President Yang Hyun Suk came late to a recording, I couldn’t help but ask him, ‘Can’t you come a little earlier?’, and I began to comfortably call him ‘oppa’ after that incident.”
She also commented on her nickname “sharp tongue”, which was given to her because of her critiques on the reality program: “My personality is usually very straightforward. Even when I work, I can’t [say things pleasantly]. After I became a judge, I tried to say things in a feminine way, but my [real] personality eventually came out.”

BoA shared, “When I was in the [final year] of elementary school, I attended a dance competition at a local department store with one of my older brothers who was an active b-boy at the time.
