‘Hello Baby’ producer explains why B1A4 was selected for Season 6
Boy group B1A4 was recently selected to be the new parents on season 6 of KBS JOY‘s ‘Hello Baby‘.
At a press conference for the show that took place on July 24th, producer Lim Yong Hyun explained why B1A4 was selected for the program, stating, “B1A4 is a boy group that consists of members who come from a rural area [as opposed to Seoul], and the show will not only follow the established format of the care and growth of the children, but also unveil the members’ journey into Seoul and the road they took to become Hallyu stars. I hope that everyone will look forward to the growth and development of the children, as well as the growth of the members. With this thought, I believed they would be a perfect fit for the role.”
Lim continued confidently, “All of the previous idol groups appeared on ‘Hello Baby’ when they were in the process of reaching the next important step in their career. The program became a helpful boost in that goal. I’m not bragging, but I do have pride when it comes to the show. Each of the groups have grown a lot more since appearing on the program.”
“B1A4 is in a similar situation,” Lim added. “They are in the middle of preparing for their promotions in Japan, and they have much potential to become bigger Hallyu stars. They are well-known in Korea, and we casted them because we look forward to high viewer ratings. I’ve watched B1A4′s music video and I liked it. I’m content with our choice.”
B1A4 also commented on their selection as the next group for the show, “We’ve watched many sunbae idol groups on the show and it seemed like a lot of fun. All of our members love kids. We may not become dads in the near feature, but we will definitely approach the show with father-like hearts.”
Meanwhile, ‘Hello Baby’ first aired in 2009 and featured artists such as Girls’ Generation, SHINee, T-ara, Super Junior, SISTAR, MBLAQ, and more.
‘Hello Baby’ season 6 will begin airing on July 25th.
