Bohyung is now a part of B2M Entertainment's five-member girl group SPICA, but way back when she was a trainee under YG Entertainment.

During her time as training under the tutelage of Yang Hyun Suk, Bohyung was in the running to be included as a member of the wildly popular girl group 2NE1.

However, she revealed that she was eventually cut from the group (which was still in the planning process at the time) and eventually left the YG label altogether.

When asked why she thinks she was ultimately removed from the 2NE1 lineup, Bohyung responded, "I think I didn't have enough swag."

She reflected on her conversation with the CEO many years ago explaining, "I was sitting alone in the practice room when Yang Hyun Suk came to me. It wasn't that I was short on talent, but he explained to me that my color was different."

But just because she was cut from 2NE1 did not mean she was forced out of the company completely. "He told me not to cry and to keep working hard. He supported me. I was a trainee for about a year after that," Bohyung reflected.

And while the singer never debuted under YG Entertainment, she did find her own path and fame elsewhere.

In 2012 Bohyung and her group SPICA made their official debut with the song "Russian Roulette."
