    I really love this kind of interviews especially the ever honest and candid Sooyoung. I always wondered if the girls feel insecure among themselves sometimes.. as for their parts in the group. It’s like everyone wants to contribute in a way to the group but on the other hand it can be quite stressful to the person.. the feeling of not contributing enough. And here we have Sooyoung who is not afraid to admit she had doubts about her position in the group, and express her dissatisfaction with the production of the second Japanese tour and, on numerous occassions (listen up SM), her lack of lines in songs.
    Seriously , this girl is beautiful inside out..and as a fan I couldn’t ask for more.
    Sooyoung Fighting!

    If I could tell any one thing to Sooyoung, it would be “Fear not!” about growing older.

    I’m 55, almost 56, and still don’t believe I’m older than my 30s (until I look in a mirror).

    There are things that I wish I did, and things that I regret doing. But, by and large, I’m happy with who I am. Sooyoung will be a beautiful woman through her whole life, and if she doesn’t have a “wild” life to look back on, she too will be happy.

    Im………so proud rite now. ;) Of Sooyoung, SNSD and myself. Why myself? Because im just so proud to be a Sone. Its stuff like this that makes me realise that i have every reason in the world to admire this group. What she said about the members starting families and whatnot was…….. touching. Mind you im a jaded 20 yr old dude whos a cynical skeptic. I dont say that kinda stuff often but something about them is just…. inspiring i guess. Stay happy and healthy ladies. ;)

    I love that they all cherish each other the way they are. The fact that they want to in some way, ‘stay together forever’, outside of ‘work’, and outside of the idol world, is very touching. Their bond & sisterhood is definitely strong. It makes this SONE’s heart very happy. ♥

    @ch0sshi ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ (that’s all i have to comment for the grateful-ness i’m feeling towards you.) jjang jjang jjang! :D
    thank God this angel is in SNSD. she’s going to be even of more help speaking in English once they start doing more activities in the U.S. and Europe. yes i’m sticking to my faith that these 9 lovely talented ladies ARE going to DOMINATE the world when the time comes. i’m so glad that SM is taking it real slow and careful with them, preparing them for the ULTIMATE battle. Soo-baby i hope that all you 9 ladies become “Ahjumma Generation” and staying strong by each other’s sides even when y’all have your own families. i’ll still be a “Ahjumma Sone” all the way baby. <3

    Really good at responding Sooyoung Unnie, since there’re 9 of u (a huge amount for idol) so it’s a little bit to give u a specific role in group, but as I know Girls’ Generation is meant to be 9, each 1 of u has different talent (not only those kkab activities but also the talent which the other can’t have). As a human, u 9 have different kinds of personality but isn’t perfect but u’re perfect when there’re 9 of u cos u complete each other weakness n also value each talent every well. If I have a daughter I want her just like u, think of family every moment. I really admire u guys for being really hard working, separated from family n went to find ur own dream in such a young age, I am also pity ur parents, they must feel really sad for not be able to cherish u guys n can’t help anything but cheering from the hearts for ur success, I found Tiffany Unnie is JJang, how a 14 years old girl knew what c want n dared to come to an unfamiliar country without knowing anyone? She’s wonderful, seeing her hard worker makes me try more n more for my future, I can’t understand ur celebrity life since mind n yours is completely different, m an architecture student, I also have so much hard time but I still need to face more, m better than u cos I have my freedom which I can do everything I want n no need to worry abt rumor or scandal, but m worse than u guys is “I dt have a single fan hahahhaha :D”
    May I have a request in name as a sone? I want u guys try to be a real artist not idol, cos nowadays ppl doesn’t give much value in the name as idol, nowadays whom is beautiful n is a celebrity will be called IDOL, u guys aren’t the same, u need to be an artist whom will make the ppl admire for ur real talents not ur beauty or famousness, for me an artist is whom know much abt music, example: know how to play much instruments, can compose the songs, art design, some celebrities make some hand-made as their habit n it becomes a kind of art, that’s artist… More n more idols are born now, n I dt even no how to recognize their face, oh god all are look the same.
    (sorry) someday ppl will start to forget u if u are just a group of girls who is sing, dance n act. Everybody does it, right? n since u have much members so it’ll be a little dangerous, u might understand, once u have done a very unique n acceptable ppl will pay more attention on u.
    Sorry if my words have sth wrong, as a sone i will remember u forever cos I dt love for ur beauty or cuteness but I love how u try, how u teach me through little words that u dt even remember which give me a deep meaning, i love ur friendship in group, i love ur kind-heart, n esp the way u play without worrying abt ur image (not like today idol, try to be cute, i hate so much)… This is for me but i can’t guarantee that the other think like me or not… Sorry if I make u feel bad with this comment, n my English isn’t good so sorry for some mistake, I really hope at least 1 of the member in SNSD will see this n think abt it… Love u forever SNSD.

    I really love Sooyoung’s interviews too because she is so mature with her responses and honest. I like what she said about her acting, like she wants to do a character who is self centered. I always wanted her to be a versatile actress and seeing how she succeeded with the brain tumor patient and the hopeless romantic, it will be a good step in her acting career. I hope the scripts she receives have that kind of role because I want to see her acting again very very soon. Like the end of this year ? XD.
    It’s true that because she is part of SNSD, she is able to get lead roles but even so, she tried as a trainee so you can’t really accuse her of taking the spoon set in the table by others (?) like some korean netizens accuse her. Moreover, she is grateful for her position and try the hardest and you can see that in the result, so you can’t really bash her :D
    And it’s cool to have a person as close as her family like her. Her mother really taught her well even though I feel bad for them because they didn’t want her to be a celebrity and with all scandals and hatred she received this year, it was surely hard for them seeing their precious daughter/sister being treated like trash. I really admire Sooyoung for being so strong. I have never thought that she was troubled by her position in the group and so, it’s nice to see that despite the struggle and insults, she overcame the difficulty and find her place as the MC/actress/and variety star/model of the group. I know that other members kind of hold the same position but I think Sooyoung is a bit better in these aeras. For example, she doesn’t only host music programs unlike Yuri and Tiffany (correct me if I am wrong) but awards ceremony, family programs, entertainments news, opening of film festival … That’s why I think her skills are better than other members. Plus, she has been aknowledged as a rookie actress so she doesn’t have to worry anymore about being useful to the group :D

    Anyway, Sooyoung fighting <3
    P.S She is so freakin' beautiful in these pictures. A true model :D I had to save all of these in my smartphone lol.

      Same here, love the photoshoot and love reading interviews of Sooyoung. Even though I am much older than her, I don’t think I would ever be able to structure my thoughts and answer these interview questions so well.

      Are you from NZ?
