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

    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.
