Having been part of the series since the very start, the Produce trainer was asked which contestant stood out the most for her and remains unforgettable all throughout the show’s four-season run.

“At first, Bae Jin Young seemed very dispirited to the point that he couldn’t even hold his head up,” she pointed out after citing the former Wanna One member as her answer. “Since I’m in the same agency as him, I got angry seeing him like that so I scolded him even harder,” the rapper also confessed.

Bae Jin Young ended up debuting in the show’s project group Wanna One, whose success story remains unparalleled despite only being together for one and a half years.
