-When you guys received the grand prize at the Golden Disk Award, you guys all cried a lot, right?

“We pretty much didn’t go to any of award ceremonies in 2008. That year, we had to watch award ceremonies on TV. That reminds me of our sadness. We grew a lot in a year and I never expected us to win the grand prize”. (Yoona)

-Which member is the funniest?

“Usually, Tiffany is the funniest member. If Tiffany can do it the way she would with us, then her sense of humor would be funny on TV, but that’s not the case”. (Sooyoung)

-Even though you guys are young, aren’t you guys worry about becoming older?

“When that happens, we will use our secret weapon, Maknae Seohyun. We’ll use her to reduce our average age, right? When f(x)’s member Sullie comes to our waiting room with her pigtails, we would straighten our hair. We just couldn’t stand having the same pigtails”. (Tiffany)

– Aren’t you guys upset that SM launched f(x)

“Since we are singers, we wonder if we lost a good song or dance to them; but it’s not like we are competing with them”. (Sooyoung)

-Which female singer sunbae(senior) do you like?

“Lee Hyori unnie and BoA sunbaenim. Recently, Tiffany was on SBS’ Family Outing. Whenever Lee Hyori sunbaenim messed up and ended up getting the punishments, she wanted to face the punishments with Tiffany. Initially, I didn’t like it but I think she did that so Tiffany would get more screen time. I became thankful for her”. (Sooyoung)

-Unlike Super Junior who do unit promotions frequently, you guys always go on stage with all nine members, right?

“If one member is absent, then we have to practice again. Even if they’re sick, we helped them get up and held hands to practice together”. (Taeyeon)

-You guys were on that baby-sitting program, who was the best?

“Hyoyeon was the best one. Sunny was good at taking care of the baby as well, since she has a nephew/niece. Sooyoung has sort of a dark face so babies tend to avoid her at first”. (Tiffany)

-Which member will get married first?

“Sooyoung and Tiffany are praying hard for their future spouse. Both of their dream is to be a good wife and wise mother. Sooyoung said if she meets the right man, then she wants to get married as soon as possible. For Tiffany, she is good at taking care of herself”. (Taeyeon)

-It isn’t easy for female celebrities to find the right guy. We don’t have that much time and it is hard for us to discern their heart. There is a high possibility for us to fall in love easily, if they were to help us during our hard times.

“I’m into Gosu from ‘Will it Snow for Christmas?’ Like housewives, I get into the drama so I end up crying often”. (Sooyoung)

-You guys are frequently asked out by many male celebrities, right?

“What Taeyeon has disclosed on that show was a long time ago, during our debut days. There is no secret among us. Since we are all close with each other, they have a hard time approaching us. Unnie, hook us up”. (Sooyoung)

-All the good guys I know are gone now. There are about 180 girls who have asked me to hook them up with guys”.

“If we weren’t celebrities, then we would be around sophomore to senior in college. Since we are always with girls, I think we lost the sense of dating”. (Taeyeon)

-Were you guys ever upset over twisted news articles?

“Not really. We got a good laugh from Jessica and Tiffany when they asked us about if the phrase ‘Crowned with six awards’ was good a thing or a bad thing on this one article”. (Hyoyeon)

-As people have a higher interest in you guys, you guys have to be careful with words, right?

“Yes, it’s not easy for us to be honest. When people ask us questions, we would hesitate, and think once more before we speak. If we are not careful with our words, someone might get offended”. (Tiffany)

-As a SNSD member, what are some of the things you have gained and lost?

“We have gained precious eight friends. On the other hand, we have lost many of our school friends. Living with our new family, SNSD members, it is also unfortunate that we have to live far away from our parents”. (Taeyeon)

-Who is good at showing love?

“Hyoyeon is blunt so she doesn’t say ‘I love you’ often. When Jessica gets angry, she becomes a cry baby; tears help relieve one’s stress. For Seohyun, she tends to hold it in then blow up later. For Tiffany and Sunny, they don’t really cry”. (Taeyeon)

-How do you guys decide on who will give the winning speech?

“It depends on members’ conditions and that day. There are times when a member pushes another member to the front and ends up talking for the group”. (Sooyoung)

-Recently, that incident where Seohyun’s face was covered by a logo became the hot topic.

“When we saw that, we laughed so hard. It wasn’t intentional. Tiffany went through the same thing long time ago. When the camera is on, there is no way to find out which spot is the good one. Lately, we have been making Seohyun sit in the middle”. (Sooyoung)

-Are you guys jealous when you see a member gets to film a CF by themselves?

“Actually, we tell them to treat us dinner or something; since they filmed a CF. We would tease each other if we don’t bring back free stuff from the CF filming, like cereal boxes or cosmetic products”. (Jessica)

-What are SNSD’s future plans?

“Although popularity has ups and downs, I hope our attitude won’t change. We want to have the attitude of being one. If there is a member who is falling behind, then I hope to see other members who are going ahead help them get up”. (Hyoyeon)
