Producer of SBS 'K-Pop Star' says BoA's departure from the show was the greatest difficulty

ProducerPark Sung Hoonof SBS'K-Pop Star' sat down for an interview with Sports Chosun.

The long-running competition series recently came to an end with its 6th season that was branded as "The Last Chance." Park Sung Hoon PD, who took charge of 'K-Pop Star' since season 1, shared about the ups and downs of the program.

When asked about the struggles he faced while working the show, Park PD named BoA's departure as the greatest difficulty of all.

He explained, "The most difficult time was when BoA left the show due to her schedule and Yoo Hee Yeoljoined in replacement. But that moment was also an opportunity. The BIG 3 labels, SM, YG, and JYP, played a critical role in the program so at first I was worried a lot and thought of it as a crisis. However, as you saw, we overcame it after Yoo Hee Yeol joined and moved one step forward."

Lastly, Park PD was asked if the 'K-Pop Star' series is truly over. He answered, "Many asked me that. I feel like the reason so many ask that question is because it's too early to end the series. I appreciate the attention but currently, I don't have any plans (for additional seasons). I don't think we would be able to decide on it first unless we come to the point where the viewers really want it. The destiny of all programs and broadcast are in the viewers hands..."
