During their discussion, BoA suddenly mentioned that she judged Lee Seunghoon over ten years ago. In 2011, Lee Seunghoon started his music career by competing in the first season of the audition program K-Pop Star. BoA was one of the judges for the show.

Twelve years later, Lee Seunghoon and BoA were on the same television program, and now he was advising BoA. Finding this situation fascinating, BoA reminded everyone of how the two first met.

Twelve years ago, he was a kid getting judged by me!

But [BoA] nuna tried to get me eliminated. She doesn’t have an eye for it.

Then BoA had a comeback that had them squealing with laughter.

Hey, but can I tell you something? The person who wanted to eliminate you the most was Yang Hyun Suk.

As a member of WINNER, Lee Seunghoon is currently under YG Entertainment, which means his boss is Yang Hyun Suk. Finding out the CEO of his label wanted him eliminated, Lee Seunghoon quickly thought of a comeback for the comeback.

Nuna, did you know? He still wants to eliminate me.

— Lee Seunghoon

As they all laughed, Kang Seungyoon hopped in on the joke, saying Lee Seunghoon was even now “hanging on by a thread.” And Lee Seunghoon continued by saying he has managed to stay put despite his CEO “wanting him gone.”

Lee Seunghoon truly knows how to shine and make people laugh on reality television shows—from K-Pop Star to this hilarious moment with his sunbae twelve years later.
