Yang Hyun Suk and BoA's comments toward Kim Se Jung during her appearance on SBS 'K-Pop Star 2' is drawing attention. 

Before her fame through 'Produce 101', IOI, and Gugudan, Kim Se Jung tried out for the second season of 'K-Pop Star' in 2012. At the time, the representatives from YG and SM Entertainment had contrasting comments about the idol.

After watching Kim Se Jung's performance, BoA commented, "I'm not sure how to train her. I will give up casting."

On the other hand, Yang Hyun Suk stated, "She lacked understanding of the song but her breathing was good. With a little bit of care and training, I think she'll become a great singer." Ultimately, Yang Hyun Suk saved Kim Se Jung from elimination and cast her in YG. 

Netizens, amazed by Yang Hyun Suk's ability to recognize stardom, are currently leaving comments such as, "Wow, daebak", "You have to admit Papa YG has good eyes", "Eagle eye", and more.

ppl say all this crap about yg but hes actually smarter what y'all think. he produced so many legends after all. even tho he can be obnoxious sometimes, we should give him some credit. he can see things a lot of other ppl cant. im so glad for yg entertainment <3

Maybe he should take over KFC after all!

why are people suddenly experts on vocals and apparently know everything about boa?? boa is hella talented, unique, and popular. she came out on kpop star bc lee sooman trusted her ?? and the other trainees under her during the time she was judging did fairly well. like mentioned in the article, sm/jyp/yg style are very different and i can easily see why sejung might not be sm style.

I mean a situation similar to this happened between him and JYP over Yuju so this isn't surprising

Boa is so overrated. If you deny this fact than so are you lmao. People call her this 'natural beauty' when she's clearly gotten a nose job. Her songs are bland to say the least and her vocals are mediocre to say the most. The only reason she's at the place she is today is because of her connections with important people in the industry. Like how does she even satisfy the reqs to judge. Then again.. miley cyrus judges on the voice so I guess it doesn't take much...

Opened Japan to KPop. First foreign artist since WW2 to top Japan's Oricon. Consistently charts with every release. Sells out concert venues for mutinight engagements regardless of how long she was away. The people she mentored on this show regularly beat those mentored by the two more experienced judges. Vocals are unique, far from mediocre. NappyTabs (multi-award winning choreographers and originators or the lyrical hip hop style) stated that she was the best dancer she'd ever worked with. Has had at LEAST one song on each album since her second one that she wrote and/or composed. All you've proven here is that you killed a LOT of brain cells back when you were sniffing glue.

Oh yeah, also THE Queen of KPop. A title she EARNED.

you know the other comment had got me doubting boa but your comment restored my love for her x

No hate on Boa... But being a veteran singer doesn't mean you're good at finding talent and seeing things others don't. YG has a good eye for recognizing talent.

obv YG= talent, sm= do you look good enough

galaxyifan ellazh12 Saturday, January 21, 2017

suuuuure thing suuuure

taemint93 ellazh12 Saturday, January 21, 2017

SM is getting to vocal+visual sweaty :))) Do you even know how many talented artists there are in SM?? You obviously don't if you have the audacity to write this lol

Halaquinn Saturday, January 21, 2017

say he is an asshole a jerk whatever u  want... but can't deny that he has a keen eye for talent .. That's why all the members in YG boygroups and girlgroups are super talented
