On an episode of cable channel OnStyle‘s 'Lee Hyori’s X Unni,' girl group SPICA‘s member Kim Bo Hyung revealed why she was dropped from group 2NE1.
During the show, Lee Hyori asked, “Do you know why you did not make 2NE1? Don’t you think there are members in 2NE1 who can’t sing as well as you?”
Kim Bo Hyung could not answer these questions, reports Soompi.
When Lee Hyori asked if she left YG because she was told to, Kim Bo Kyung answered, “I was alone in the office when CEO Yang Hyun Suk came in.
"He said that it wasn’t because I didn’t have what it takes, but because my color was different than that of 2NE1. I sat alone in the training room, and he came in and stayed with me to cheer for me.”
Fans that saw this episode commented, “I didn’t even know that she was a YG trainee,” and “I think Yang Hyun Suk was right.”
