JTBC aired a new episode of 'Sleeping with the Boss' on September 26, featuring FNC artists, such as AOA and F.T Island, with their agency's CEO, Han Sung Ho.
AOA's ChoA said, "Because we're on a program with our CEO as the focus, I wanted to say nice things, but to tell the truth, we don't know the CEO very well. If things don't go well, we do not exchange words," causing laughter and chaos on set with this revelation that he ignored them when they were not popular.
Chanmi further revealed, "He only learned our names after we finished 'Miniskirt' [promotions]." ChoA continued, "He eats meals so often with CNBLUE and F.T Island, but he ate only once with us." Yuna added, "We ate with him for the first time not too long ago."
As Juniel was also on the show, Kim Gu Ra asked her if she had eaten with the CEO to which she denied having ever shared a meal. The CEO said in his defense, "When it comes to female celebrities like girl groups or Juniel, even when we're recording, it's a bit awkward, so we don't meet up privately. It's also uncomfortable for them when I ask to eat together."
He was again taken aback by ChoA's protest as she denied this. She continued, "He was really not buying us a meal; one day, the members were like, 'This isn't right,' so on a rainy day, we left a message on his car, 'CEO, we want to eat octopus. Please buy us octopus,' so that was how we ate together for the first time."
FNC actor Hong Sung Hyuk backed up the girls, saying he was not spoken to by the CEO until after his drama 'Jang Bo Ri is Here!' took off, so he did suspect what ChoA was saying about Han Sung Ho was correct.
