Kim Boa started off by saying, “After a rehearsal for Inkigayo while I was walking down IU tapped my bottom.”
IU was asked why she did that, and she replied, “I don’t really cry much, and still haven’t cried when I received an award. However, when Kim Boa unni, who I spent very difficult trainee days with, had her debut, I cried. I was so proud of her, that is why I tapped her bottom.”
Then, IU stated, “It is so moving for me that I am now sitting next to Boa who I have spent trainee days, for such a signature SBS show as ‘Strong Heart.’” After she said that, IU broke into tears and she was joined by Kim Boa who cried as well.
