S MAGAZINE - AUGUST 2007

Posted Image Posted Image TAEYEON
They said that SNSD will be a group that not only sings, but will also be working in acting and MCing. If you can pick an area you want to work in?
First of all, we're planning to work hard as SNSD. Later on, if given the opportunity, I would like to try acting in a Sitcom or DJing.

What was your first impression of YoonA?

She looked like a gorgeous angel.

I am ______(Describe yourself in 5 words)
Sweet and refreshing.

Out of the SNSD members, if you can choose something you would like to learn from a member?
It's really hard to choose from a single member because everyone has their own individual character and many good things about them. But if I had to choose one, I would choose Sunny. Even when she is tired, Sunny's peculiar smile and the way she cares for others never goes away, and I would like to learn this from her.

Is there a dream you wish to come true?
Winning this year's New Artist Award!

What was the hardest part of being a trainee?
Living away from my family was the hardest part. Because of that, it took me a while to adjust. I also talked with my parents everyday too. Nowadays, we talk even more by doing video-calling. However, I'm very happy now because spending time with my members feels like I'm spending time with my family since it's comfortable and fun.

Besides music and acting, is there any other interests you have?
I like to play games. I've been hooked onto Nintendo and Cellphone games lately. The game I liked the most is definitely 'Rollercoaster Tycoon'.

Who's your role model?
My role model is my mother.

Lastly, would you like to say what you'll be prepared to do from now on?
Just like our name Girls Generation states, I would like to make our country a Girl's Generation. Moving out to Asia and even more out to the world and make the entire world Girl's Generation. We'll be showing our charm of active, fresh, cute image so please continue loving us more.

They said that SNSD will be a group that not only sings, but will also be working in acting and MCing. If you can pick an area you want to work in?
I would like to switch between singing and acting. Besides singing, I think I'll be appearing more as an actress as well.

What was your first impression of SeoHyun?
I remember her to be very quiet and introversive. At that time I was very young too, but SeoHyun was even younger. SeoHyun back in grade 5 was very cute.

I am ______ (Describe yourself in 5 words)
Person that cries a lot.

Is there a dream you wish to come true?
For SNSD to receive the New Artist Award this year.

What is something that makes you happy?
I really enjoy talking with the people I like. Lately, everyday has been fun because I'm able to spend time together with my members and talk about many things together.

Fall is known as the reading season, is there any books you would like to recommend?
I have a very indecisive personality and there are many times I am troubled for not being able to decide on something. Recently, I read a book called and it has helped me a lot. If you read the book and follow the system stated in the book, I think it'll be useful for people that have an indecisive personality like mine.

Actress Yoona vs Singer Yoona vs Model Yoona. What's the title you like the most?
It's really hard to choose one. All of them are an area I would like to do and feel greedy for.

Lastly, would you like to say what you'll be prepared to do from now on?
Please continue looking out for SNSD. I will be trying my best in both the drama and with SNSD. Yoona, the girl with a diverse charm, is trying her best so please cheer me on. Please keep a lot of interest in SNSD's Yoona and <2 Outs in the bottom of the 9th>'s JooYoung.

The youngest of SoNyeoShiDae's 9 person , SeoHyun. "If there's a good point being the youngest, the older sisters will be having a lovable sensation. And if we look inside the older sisters, I've got more chance to learn many things, I think that's the good point. Because I'm the youngest, when the time I have to do something difficult comes, sometimes I feel tired. But I like being the youngest(LAUGH)." Actually Most of SeoHyun's personality is formed by the end of shooting.
SeoHyeon, who worry about the answers of the interview, rushed to the older sisters to ask for help.

Before making a debut, performing with all the Seniors and famous singers in real program,
I hope we do so. So we have to put all our efforts(LAUGH).

Sleep for 10 minutes, get up, what did you do after the event?
Before sleep for 10 minutes, I write a diary. Finding out what happened in that day, fixing the point, you can think again, a positive fact. And then, in the morning, when you wake up, make a big smile. my parents used to start their day by laughing, that day they said that I would feel better if I tried it.

Bright and upbeat.

Dream, Is there anything you want to achieve?

I want SoNyeoShiDae become the best newcomer in year 2007! A newcomer outside can't receive the award even once. So that's why I'm greedy(LAUGH). Again, to men, women, and children, it would be great if SoNyeoShiDae received more love and interest. It would be great also if all of you personally have lots of love to Sunny.

Favourite Motto

Everyday is sunnyday! It means full of confidence, my favourite motto.

Lastly,preparation for the future in a single word

"First, I cut my hair short. I cut 40 cm, even though I regret it, I tried to change in order to show a good appearance." Tiffany made a consistent smile in the beginning and the end.
Maybe you want to know Tiffany's reaction when she's reading a post related to herself in the official website.

For some reason I get the feeling Taeyeon is only snappy with Tiffany... xD

I'm a bit surprised with Yoona's answers, I didn't think she would be an indecisive person nor someone who cries a lot... But now that I think about it it does fit her a little.
