The Wonder Girls (minus Ye Eun) and Joo appeared in Episode 11 of MBC “Brain Battle”, expressing their displeasure with their boss, Park Jin Young.
When the MC of the show asked the girls, how many times did Park Jin Young make you feel upset or inferior, all five of the “So Hot” singers replied by admitting that there were several instances where they were hurt over JYP’s ruthless comments.
“When Park Jin Young is hungry, he gets really sharp with words,” Wonder Girls member, Yoo Bin stated. “While we were recording our new album, JYP who had not eaten yet scolded me for no reason. But as soon as he ate some tofu, he was kind and sweet to all of the other members. I was real hurt.”
“There was this one time when I came in wearing sunglasses, and JYP told me to take it off because the sunglasses were too tacky,” Sun Mi said. “But later, he had taken my sunglasses and was wearing them.
JYP’s ballad princess, Joo, even recollected a time when Park Jin Young commented on her recent weight gain. “He said, look at this fat, it feels like tofu,” JOO said. “And yeah, it hurt.”
So Hee expressed that because of the time difference between Seoul and New York, they were scolded many times by Park Jin Young for not doing a good job with their vocals whilst recording their “So Hot” mini album. But the reason was because they couldn’t get proper sleep on their return.
Meanwhile for Yoo Bin, whilst they were preparing for their new album album jacket photoshoot, she sent an email to Park Jin Young to confirm her clothing image concept. But she was instead rebuked for putting on weight.
After making their complaints public, all of them tried to remedy the situation, “Sajang-nim (boss), we love you”, displaying a heart to show their sincereity.
