Sadly, most of the time, the idols have to go along with music and concepts handed to them by their companies. Eventually, if the idols do well, they get a chance to write and release their own music, but that takes a while. In the mean time, these idols relayed honestly that some of their very own songs failed to impress them - at least on the first lesson.
Which songs do you agree were not all that great? At least at first.
Taeyeon - MULTIPLE Girls' Generation songs
She's known for a "jinx" in which if she doesn't like the song, the song always does well.
Dasom - "I Like That"
She admitted on 'Sketchbook' that upon first hearing the song, she did not "like that," but it grew on her thanks to the choreography. Welcome to k-pop Dasom.
Wonder Girls - "Tell Me"
J.Y. Park revealed that the girl group was immensely against the hit song that set them off to fame.
miss A - "Good Girl Bad Girl"
Turns out miss A vehemently opposed their debut song, which went on to do really well. Listen to the man.
Soyu - "Shake It"
Soyu said that following "Touch My Body," this song seemed bland in comparison, but it grew on her, too.
Stellar - "Fool"
Stellar thought the song was a bit bland, but the agency pushed for them to try something different from the sexy concepts… before going back to it when this song failed.
