Back in 2016, producer Brave Brothers featured as a guest on MBC‘s I Live Alone. Brave Brothers is the man behind some of K-Pop’s biggest hit songs such as, 4Minute‘s “What’s Your Name”, AOA‘s “Miniskirt” and “Like A Cat”, Sistar‘s “Ma Boy” and Sunmi‘s “Full Moon.” He is also the founder of Brave Entertainment and the mastermind behind the viral girl group, Brave Girls.

During his time on the show, a clip was shown to viewers of him chatting with the members of the girl group. The topic that was discussed was none other than dieting and the girls’ weights. The producer joins the girls in the practice room while the girl group was practicing for their song, “Deepened.”

It was to their response that the producer began his scolding session.

All of the members froze in place after hearing his statement and prepared themselves for what’s to come.

 You guys have to be in charge of dieting and trying to look your best for your promotions. I told you guys that you can eat what you want if you’re confident in how you look.

While his scolding started on off a harsher note, the producer reeled it back by expressing why he wants the girls to look the best they can.

You guys have to work harder to do your best. That’s the only way your efforts will be shown to the public. If the public feels touched, then that’s when they will show you guys the love.

The producer didn’t stop his speech there. He shared with Brave Girls the amount of work that goes behind the scenes so that they can look good.

There are dozens of people who work so that you guys can perform and promote. They stay up all night and work harder than you all. If you guys disappoint them, those people will lose the will to work because they won’t understand why they do what they do if you don’t put in your effort.

— Brave Brothers

Brave Brothers concluded his message for the girls by sharing his love for them.

You guys are my babies so it doesn’t matter to me because you guys are always pretty to me. So please, even if it’s just during your promotions, be careful about what you eat and just endure.
