With the second season of Mnet's 'Produce 101' coming to a close, PD Ahn Joon Young sat down with OSEN for an exclusive interview discussing his experience working with singers, such as BoA and Kahi as well as describing their unique coaching methods.

When asked if BoA was a suitable choice as a producer, PD Ahn commented, "Personally, I think Ms. BoA is well cut-out for variety programs. I think it may have to do with the fact that she showed us such a charismatic appeal beforehand. Not only was she good at MCing, but I got to see her human side as well. She built a close bond with the trainees and monitored the program exceptionally well."

Producer Ahn also went on to describe the coaches' methods, saying, "Teacher Kahi was able to quickly grasp the tendencies of both male and female contestants since it was her second time being on the show. She was a lot stricter on the male contestants. Her honest comments were very helpful."

He continued, "As for teacher BoA, she is like a ferocious tiger. The students were afraid of her. I remember she told me one time, 'I am the second most hated person on this program. The first person is you.' However, she had a lot of affection for the trainees, so she was able to teach them on a harsher level. I was also touched when she practiced until late in the night with the trainees working on the choreography together."

It's mistranslation because in the original article, he meant Kwon Jaesung, not BoA when he was talking about helping the trainees with the choreo since he went to talk about all the teachers. He referred to Kwon Jaesung as teacher Kwon in the original article.

Boa is the second hated people? Are you sure? I think I like her way of strictness. Yeah.. She is really strict with Kahi but it is because they are really care about them. I think the only one that I don't like much is the one that choose the content.. 😑

She's not, it's a mistranslation since he was actually talking about Kwon Jaesung, not BoA

OoO.. But Jaesung is kind of nice.. I think? LoL.. And here I thought more people hate Kahi more because she is more strict.. Tbh I find all the trainers likeable.

Last year everyone was afraid of Kahi ... This year, a new monster arrived hahaha. Quick question though, Kahi was in charge of dancing and stage presence for the first season but BoA is also known for sharp dancing skills and stage presence. So what role did BoA play this season ? Was Kahi's role still the same or was the role given to BoA ?

BoA is mainly the host of the show. Kahi's role was the same as Season 1.. but i guess due to the fact that BoA is still actively promoting as a singer, she helps out whenever she can.

Omg, thanks so much ! Everything makes sense hahaha !

Fun fact: BoA used to be Kahi's boss. Kahi got her start as a back up dancer for BoA. She's in the "My Name" MV. :)

BoA is queen!! She's the best, the very professional type!! And Kahi too, she's kinda strict! Both are very talented!! Hope to see their collaboration! :)

BoA might be the only reason i would even consider watching produce 101

KN7x13st7 ThsDee Saturday, July 1, 2017

Kwon Jaesung said that to him, not BoA

Winston Tuesday, June 27, 2017

The first person is you. LOL, BoA got the latter part right, i think a lot of fans and viewers hated the PD for all the issues with the Season 2.

KN7x13st7 Winston Saturday, July 1, 2017

LOL it wasn't BoA who said this. He was actually talking about Kwon Jaesung. It's a mistranslation
