AOA were one of the guests on the May 20 airing of 'Sketchbook.' One of the highlights of the interview was when Chanmi gave more details on when she ran away a couple years back. The girls also talked about their obscure days, and how things changed when they finally became popular. 

Chanmi said, "Puberty hit me during 'Short Hair' promotions. I ran away because I thought that this is not the right path for me. I was so thankful when Jimin came to find me." A sympathetic Yoo Hee Yeol advised the girls, "Because you're still young, it can be that you don't really know [what you want to do], and since you guys might be lacking [in certain areas], you should rely on one another."

AOA also mentioned that it's been five years since they debuted and talked about their troubled beginnings. ChoA said jokingly, "Two out of the five years, it was like we didn't exist. We didn't do so well," bringing laughter. Mina added, "At the time AOA debuted, 80 other girl groups debuted. In a week since our debut, there were already more junior artists."

Now that they're one of the most popular groups in K-Pop, the AOA members revealed that their 'status' within FNC has changed. Seolhyun explained that after "Short Skirt," the company started showing a greater interest in them and that they even got to have a meal with the CEO. She said, "He memorized all of our names," and Hyejeong added, "After 'Short Hair,' we did sixty events in one month." ChoA joked, "After 'Heart Attack,' Seolhyun started popping up everywhere on the streets."

Why don't they talk how fnc media play works? And how they try hard to cry on their channel? And who is seolhyun's sponsor? We want to all that!

Sponsor doesn't have a boss. He IS the boss.

AOA has got to be one of the few groups in Kpop where majority of the members can sing live stably. Seolhyun surprised me, especially! It's such a shame controversies happened to them because I really love AOA and their songs :( I hope their new song gets a lot of love from fans despite what's happened lately. AOA, good luck! Fighting~
