On the June 16 airing of 'Happy Together,' Brown Eyed Girls' JeA confessed that guys have contacted her more often while appearing on 'Produce 101.' 


The singer revealed, "I got a lot of calls [from men] during 'Produce 101.' They would just call me out of nowhere and say stuff like, 'I [like] Im Na Young.' There were celebrities among them as well." JeA exploded, "Like, what do you want me to do about it?" bringing a bout of laughter.

She continued, "They would ask me about ['Produce 101' contestants'] personalities and if they like grown men. I have no idea why they would ask me something like that. It's not like they have a chance. And the age gap [between the guys and the 'Produce 101' contestants] was big, too."

    these old guys wanted to use her as a middle hand in these lousy "sponsorship"  deals that exists in the korean entertainment world. Im glad she said no.

    It's fucking disgusting how (mostly the korean) fans get upset when a girlgroup member gets a legit boyfriend but no one seems to care that many of them are some gross industry official or sponsor's sexbunny at some point and getting a chance to be an idol often involves spreading your legs....

    Lol is she being naive? This is how sponsorship works in the entertainment industry and I'm willing to bet at least a good number of the girls in Produce 101 have or have had such relationships especially since it was revealed that some of the girls are from companies that aren't even legally registered.

    Why would she be naive? I'm pretty sure she knew what those dudes were up to. That's why she said, "What do you want me to do about it?" and "It's not like they have a chance". Was she suppose to say, "Yeh. Those guys were interested in 'sponsoring'".
