On May 14th, Girls’ Generation members Taeyeon, Tiffany and Seohyun appeared on KBS 2TV’s “Hello”, in which the three showed off their variety skills, revealing a couple of unknown tidbits about each other in the process.

In the episode, Taeyeon’s interest in basic comedy was brought to light when she burst into laughter at MC Shin Dongyup’s comment, “I didn’t fart”, when he introduced the story of Ga Jungdae, a man who is accused of “things” because he can’t smell.

Ga Jundgae, who says he “has trouble living an ordinary life” because he cannot smell the foulest of things, mentioned that he doesn’t shower because he can’t smell himself, but “other people feel uncomfortable” because of his smell. This prompted comments from the MCs about farts throughout the program and brought attention to Taeyeon, who laughed every time the word was mentioned. Tiffany showed Taeyeon’s love for basic comedy by saying, “If you talk about farts, Taeyeon will continue to laugh. She likes dirty topics in particular.” Taeyeon herself added, while laughing, “Out of fart stories, poop farts are the funniest,” causing the entire studio to erupt with laughter.

Continuing with the foul-smelling theme, some of the world’s foulest-smelling food was prepared, causing pandemonium in the studio. Foods such as fermented tofu from China, and surströmming, a type of soured herring from Sweden, were tasted by the MCs, stunning them, but the smell proved too much for Tiffany. She stated, “I’m sensitive when it comes to smells, so I would like to ask for deodorizer,” before leaving the set with a scrunched up face to the top of the slide, saying that she couldn’t take the smell anymore. Ga Jungdae, however, when tasting the food, simply said it was salty, completely unbothered by the smell.

After trying some of the smelly food, Lee Youngja introduced a story titled “Girlfriend Who Gained 30kg From Eating Bread”, which led to questions on the highly-talked about “Girls’ Generation Diet Menu”. After Lee Youngja shook her head, stating that she “just can’t understand that”, Tiffany replied that the girls themselves were just as surprised. The menu, which listed eight cherry tomatoes and six strawberries, was completely dismissed by Tiffany, who said that Girls’ Generation “can’t promote if [we] eat like that.” When asked about their favourite foods, Taeyeon replied that Tiffany is “crazy for unagi”, a freshwater eel, causing Tiffany to laugh shyly.
