Girls' Generation's Sooyoung shared her debut story on 'Taxi'.


On the May 18 episode, Sooyoung revealed, "I actually debuted in Japan first. Not a lot of people know but there was a popular Japanese audition program titled Asayan's 'Korea Japan Ultra Idol Duo Audition' similar to 'K-Pop Star' and 'Superstar K'."

She continued, "During the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan, they were holding an audition for a South Korea/Japan idol group and I was selected. Out of the 15,000 contestants, I was the one to debut. I promoted for more than 3 years (as a member of Route θ)."

    i remembered watching the duo in some shows back then.. so when she debuted with GG i heard about this and it surprised me that one of the duo girls was her.. also that she's a BoA hoobae.. ^^ because i'm such a big fan of BoA's but never knew they were from the same company..

    Proud of her for winning that competition at such a young age, and debuting in a foreign country when she was only 13 years old, she had to speak and sing a foreign language, and learn the culture, and stay overseas. Brave and smart and hardworking, even at such a young age.  If anyone should be a role model for girls, she would be one.
