Singer BoA revealed the hierarchy system within SM Entertainment.

On the May 29th episode of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Win Win‘, BoA talked about how she was selected to be a judge representing SM on SBSK-Pop Star‘.

One day during a company dinner, Chairman Lee Soo Man remarked that it would be nice if I were to be the SM judge on ‘K-Pop Star’,” she said. “At first, I was dumbfounded.

Within SM, I rank third after Yoo Young Jin (songwriter / producer), and Kang Ta,” she continued, admitting that the idea of representing SM was “a little intimidating.”

Aesthetically speaking, he thought it would be better for me to join the judging panel, instead of Kang Ta who is a male,” she said with a smile.

When asked why the Chairman himself did not join the panel, she answered, “I think the long filming hours would have been hard for him at his age,” letting out a laugh.

To be honest, I’m not sure why. He said he would think about it, but he became busy with something else in the meantime,” BoA explained.

Member Kim Boa of girl group SPICA revealed her past photo surprising everyone on the latest episode of ‘Strong Heart‘.

On the May 29th broadcast of SBS TV‘s ‘Strong Heart’, Boa remarked, “Netizens were suspicious that I had undergone a whole lot of plastic surgery.”

“Of course I did get a little bit of work done, but I worked really hard and lost a lot of weight too,” she continued and subtly circled her nose area with her fingers to hint at the place she had touched up with surgery.

The singer’s past photo was then revealed, and the guests could not hide their shock upon seeing the photo of a Boa who looked to be much chubbier than her former self.

“It’s apparent that you really did work hard,” they said in addition to “You look like a student who did really well in her studies,” to which Boa responded, “Yeah I hear that a lot.”

Boa’s good friend IU also remarked that she was surprised upon seeing Boa’s older photos as she had believed that Boa had always been long and thin, not realizing that Boa’s current figure had come from much hard work and sweat.
