Lee Honey,

Lee Honey talked about her teenage years.

She made a speech in front of 200 or so audiences on the OnStyle TV show "Get It Beauty".

She said, "Enjoy your outrageous teen years. I think I went through it for a long time. I went to the same school as my mother and sister and even played the same instrument. I always had a wall in front of me and I couldn"t avoid it even if I could help it".

"I even left home when I was a teen to become a backup dancer. I was punished a lot. I learned taekwondo, golf, scuba diving, opera and more, and yet I was still the ugly duckling of the family".

"That was a major nutritive element for me. What I want to tell you is, you have to know yourself for yourself".

Kahi Given Sudden Reminder of Her Past as BoA’s Backup Dancer Singer and former After School leader Kahi was given an unexpected reminder of how she made her start in the music industry as a backup dancer for singer BoA on the final episode of Mnet’s “Beatles Code 3D.”

As part of the show, aired on May 6, the program’s hosts revealed two photographs of Kahi, captured from the TV debut of BoA’s “Valenti,” a single released in 2002. The shocked singer saw the funny side eventually, but at first seemed quite embarrassed by the pictures. “They look so ugly!” she cried, and then later joked that she looked a little “like Eddy Kim” in the photos.

The former After School star got her big break when she was spotted dancing as a back dancer by BoA’s manager at the time. Twelve years later, that same manager is now in charge of Kahi’s solo career.

Kahi was then asked about how she felt after meeting BoA after she too became a singer. To this, she replied, “BoA told me she was so happy I was doing well. Her kind words brought tears to my eyes.”

K-Pop Crossover: The Cast Of 'The Bachelor' Acts As 2NE1's Backup Dancers In Monday's Episode (Photo : Facebook) K-Pop Crossover: The Cast Of 'The Bachelor' Acts As 2NE1's Backup Dancers In Monday's Episode (Photo : courtesy of ABC) 2NE1 got some very high-profile backup singers recently.

At a recent performance, filmed for Monday"s episode of the reality show "The Bachelor," six members of the reality show"s cast served as 2NE1"s dancers, after learning the choreography for the song "I Am The Best" directly from the four band members.

The episode features this season"s bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis and six of his 13 potential fiancées taking in the sights in Seoul.

"Six [cast members of "The Bachelor"] go on an outrageous escapade better known as a Korean Craze, including singing karaoke, going for a river tour on swan-shaped pedal boats and enduring a fish pedicure," an ABC press release from Tuesday announced.

"However, things get ugly when one woman tries to steal too much time with Juan Pablo. And to make things more interesting, the Bachelor, with his daughter uppermost in his mind, decides that night to take a step back and not kiss anyone. One woman goes in for a kiss and is rejected."

But for the six other cast members asked to perform onstage with 2NE1, the experience was anything but a vacation.

"K-Pop superstars 2NE1 put Juan Pablo and six of the women through their paces, teaching them a choreographed routine to one of their chart-topping hits," the network release added.

"[Cast member] Kat steals the spotlight with her professional dance moves, while Nikki struggles to keep up and fit in. Then the group drops a bombshell--Juan Pablo and the six beautiful women will perform as background dancers during a concert in front of a live audience."

Requests for comment from the producers of "The Bachelor" and 2NE1"s record label, YG Entertainment, regarding the group"s appearance were not immediately responded to. A spokeswoman for ABC declined to comment.

This season"s bachelor found himself in hot water after telling TV Page writer Sean Daly on Friday that he was opposed to the idea of a gay or bisexual central character on a subsequent season of the reality show.

"I don"t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV," Galavis said at a party ABC execs held to promote "The Bachelor" in Pasadena, Calif.

The former Venezuelan soccer star added that gay people are "more pervert[ed] in a sense."

According to Time Magazine"s Melissa Locker, Galavis later apologized, blaming his comments on his bad English skills.

The bachelor claimed he meant to say "gay people are more affectionate and intense."
