Girls' Generation is undoubtedly named as the top girl group in South Korea. The girls have been dominating the industry for 10 years. Regarding the group's honorable position in the field, Sooyoung said, "I didn't realize how much this meant until about 2 years ago. We won the daesang as a girl group and went on world tours. I didn't know how big and difficult many of these accomplishments were. I just worked hard for what's given in front of me, went on stage, and busily worked. As we started individual promotions, I realized that the things I did as Girls' Generation are the worthiest of all the things I can do. I received an excessive amount of love compared to my talent. We were able to be together in the same boat because it was 8 of us."

Another girl group Wonder Girls also celebrated their 10th anniversary this year. Unfortunately, they've released their last goodbye track on the anniversary day for their disbandment. Sooyoung shared thoughts about Wonder Girls, and said, "I really admired Wonder Girls after seeing their transition into a band. I wondered if we could've gone through such changes and challenges after performing 10 years. I was curious about their change so I looked up all of their interviews. They were a good influence and we were good motivation for each other. As a fan, it's unfortunate (they've disbanded) but I'm still supporting them as a colleague."

Next, Sooyoung was asked about Girls' Generation's strengths. She answered, "We try to copy one another's good qualities. If one works hard then other members do too. It also gives a good influence (to all) when one does a good deed. Greeting others well is also our strength. Overall, we have a 'hungry mind' because we didn't become hits at once. We also know the importance of popularity."

Sports DongA then mentioned the departure of Jessica and commented that that must've been one of the toughest times for Girls' Generation. In response, Sooyoung quoted the famous line from drama 'Goblin', saying, "Because the weather was good, because the weather was bad and because the weather was good enough. I loved every moment of it."

Lastly, Sooyoung emphasized that all members of Girls' Generation have been highly looking forward to and are working hard for their 10th-anniversary album, which is scheduled to release this August.

I think her answer is very matured... Safe and not rubbing any salt to an old wound...

The crazy comments below are perfect examples of what mouth breathers sounds like in the wilderness. And to the left you'll see a species of rabid fangirls characterized by white, foamy substances produced from their mouth

what does that goblin comment even mean? can someone translate it to me? thanks!

At first i didn't get it either but someone explained it here.. So basically it means she appreciates everything they've been through all the memories they share, all the things they experienced even the bad ones..

Who cares. Jessica left so therefore it is 8 at the moment. Get the fuck over it

hiroonakamura kddicted Sunday, March 26, 2017

considering how snsd never talks about it, how can the media get over the huge issue?

BubblyFary hiroonakamura Monday, March 27, 2017

Exactly my thought

BubblyFary kddicted Monday, March 27, 2017

You could get over it then good for you.. but you don't force people to do so..

kddicted hiroonakamura Monday, March 27, 2017

Fair enough

kddicted BubblyFary Saturday, April 1, 2017

I'm not forcing people to do so, I'm just saying that it's been 2 years and Sooyoung shouldn't be getting bashed, it's probably sm who told snsd not to talk about her much

BubblyFary kddicted Sunday, April 2, 2017

Allright then..

ChanelOberlin kddicted Monday, April 10, 2017

im 100% its SM. Because Jessica was asked if she still keep contact with the members, and she said ''some'' so, its been 2 years, and Jess still talk to some of them...its obvious that SM is doin' all this.

I received an excessive amount of love compared to my talent. --- she must have saved her country in her previous life
