BoA Explains Why Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon Is The Leader Of GOT The Beat

There were two specific reasons.

In a recent Look Me Up interview with 1theK Originals, legendary K-Pop soloist BoA searched her name on the internet and debunked or confirmed some internet facts about herself.

BoA also found herself talking about SM Entertainment‘s supergroup GOT the Beat, which she is a member of alongside fellow artists Taeyeon and Hyoyeon from Girls’ Generation, Seulgi and Wendy from Red Velvet, and Karina and Winter from aespa.

Some fans assumed BoA would be the group’s leader due to her seniority and experience, but it was revealed that it was Taeyeon! BoA explained that she had asked Taeyeon to be the team leader since she had more experience being in a group and leading Girls’ Generation.

Being a 2nd generation idol, Taeyeon might also have an easier time mediating between BoA, a 1st generation idol, and the Red Velvet and aespa members, who are 3rd and 4th generation idols, respectively.

BoA also clarified that the age gap between her and Taeyeon is only 3 years, although some might assume it’s more since they debuted almost 7 years apart.

Watch the whole Look Me Up interview with BoA below. She talks about why she asked Taeyeon to lead GOT the Beat at the 4:09 mark.
