On the September 20 broadcast of MBC's television show 'Radio Star', Baek Z Young appeared as a guest.
When the hosts claimed that Baek Z Young was Bang Si-hyuk's muse, her response was, "Was I?"
"I wouldn't say that I was his muse, but we did work together for a long time.", she resumed, "He contributed to many of my albums as a songwriter. I once personally visited Bang Si-hyuk and asked him to write a ballad for me, since I knew how talented he was after working together on previous projects. That's how the track 'Like Being Shot by a Bullet' was created. 'My Ear's Candy' is also his work. He wrote so many of my songs, title tracks or not.", she said.
"I called him up one day and asked him to write some songs for my next album, but he turned me down this time.", she recalled, adding that he gave such a reasonable and straightforward explanation for his refusal.
Then, Baek Z Young stated that she came to figure out what the project he mentioned was.
"Not so long after, BTS made their debut.", as she said, everyone in the studio gasped in astonishment.
"Wait. 'Like Being Shot by a Bullet' and Bulletproof Boys (BTS)? Is it possible that your song inspired the name of the group?", the comedian asked.
Baek Z Young nodded and responded, "I know, right? I wondered why the group's name had to be Bulletproof Boys."
When asked if she ever regretted not trying harder to get Bang Si-hyuk to work with her again, after the producer and BTS achieved phenomenal success, the singer firmly said, "I don't have that kind of regret at all."
