Girls’ Generation members answered fan mail on the Japan Mobile Fansite recently.  Check out what the girls had to say below.


Q: Yuri, when you are down and have no energy, what do you do?
A: I wear cute training wear and exercise! I’m contemplating if there is something interesting lately. Music! Composing songs!? I’m trying to find something new. Does anyone know something interesting?!

Q: What is your happiest moment?
A: When I discover something new! When I go on a trip.

Q: Isn’t it hard to dance in heels?
A: It’s tremendously difficult. But I don’t mind. (laughs)

Q: Explain us how to apply make-up in order to look cute with natural make-up like Soshi.

Q: Jessica who sleeps well, lately do you have enough sleep?
A: Lately…I don’t sleep so much (T_T)

Q: What is the favorite thing you bought in Japan?
A: Make-up tools, being able to apply make-up by myself is very useful and I use it a lot.

Q: What is your feeling after finishing the Japan Tour?
A: While doing 14 performances and enjoying the stages, we didn’t only become one with the audience, we learned a lot that nobody will understand if they don’t experience it directly.
While touring around I feel like I was able to grow a lot. I’m happy that I also got a bit better in Japanese. But I’m still not that good yet…From now on I will put more and more effort in showing everyone an amazing performance.
