Entertainment CEO's are known to be somewhat harsh on their trainees and artists, but it seems that FNC Entertainment's president might be among one of the toughest. The members of AOA made a guest appearance on SBS' "Choi Hwa Jung's Power Time", where DJ Choi Hwa Jung stated, "Your CEO's discriminatory treatment is (in)famous."

The members of AOA replied, "It's only now our CEO knows our names." to which ChoA added, "It's because our group has so many members."

Choi Hwa Jung asked what their CEO would label them before being able to memorize their names. AOA shared that their nicknames were given from their first impressions at their auditions, Mina said, "I was a shopping model before so I was called 'shopping mall'." Yuna said, "I played the keyboard and sang at my audition. So I was called 'keyboard playing child'." Maknae Chanmi was simply called 'maknae', and Hyejeong, who had once been a cheerleader, was called 'cheerleader.'
