Produce 101’s Mentor, Bae Yoon-jung, Shared About Her Viral Comment Towards IOI’s Former Member, Kim Sohye
Bae Yoon-jung is known as a choreographer that mostly creates the dance moves for girl-groups. Bae Yoon-jung appeared as the guest star on ‘Radio Star’ on August 15th, 2018, and shared the true story of her comment to Kim Sohye when she was training to be an idol on Produce 101.
The choreographer asked Kim Sohye, “Sohye-ah, do you want to become a singer?” and her comment went viral, even becoming the most famous meme of Produce 101 Season 1, because of all of Kim Sohye’s struggles during practice.
Bae Yoon-jung expressed the true story behind her viral comment, “I was just really curious if she (Kim Sohye) was able to complete the missions because it seemed that she couldn’t dance or sing. I was really curious to ask her but I ended up like I was criticizing her.”
Kim Sohye received plenty of criticism from the mentors and viewers for being unable to keep up with the other participants, but at the beginning of the clip above, Bae Yoon-jung was shocked to see how much of an improvement Kim Sohye’s made in her dancing skills, and the next time Kim Sohye’s group performed in front of Bae Yoon-jung, the trainer ended up crying when she saw how much Kim Sohye’s ability had improved, and complimented the trainee on how hard she must have practiced to developed herself.
Bae Yoon-jung then continued, “I cried after watching Kim Sohye dance in the next day after I said that to her. Kim Sohye has practiced all night and people think I was acted and poke my eyes to made myself cry for the filming but it wasn’t true. I cried for real in fact that she improved overnight and practiced in late hours to showed that she has worked hard. I was very proud to see that Kim Sohye finally became one of the final member and debuted as I.O.I”
