Tiffany opened up about her solo career, Girls' Generation, new solo release, and more with 'Paper'.
In light of Tiffany's new solo release "Over My Skin", 'Paper' took the time to chat with the idol on her new start in the U.S.
"Over My Skin" is Tiffany's very first solo promotions since leaving SM Entertainment. To the question, "This is being done without SM Entertainment. What is that like?", Tiffany answered, "Being in SM, I think, was probably the most intense, greatest and most educational thing that I have done. SM. has a cult following. I love SM. I love the artists. I was such a fan, which made me want to go into that label. Being a part of it and being able to create, hands-on, starting in 2011 — just the whole crafting of it. I would love people to look at me and say, 'Wow, she's very creative.' 'Girls' Generation was so polished that it took time for anybody to really consider us, uh... craftsmen. Now we're 10- years in, and they're like, 'Oh dang, Girls' Generation is holding it down!' The art spoke for itself. I believe in that."
Another question mentioned BTS and Black Pink and asked if SM ever considered Girls' Generation to enter the Western market. Tiffany replied, "It happened so suddenly," and added, "The internet isn't the same as when we were starting."
She also stated, "The senior artists at SM really paved the way for what Girls' Generation became. There was a whole generation of girl bands and boy bands when we were really active that created this platform for the younger artists to bloom. You watch BTS, you watch Black Pink — it's undeniable. They're visually stunning. Now, people are really understanding the craftsmanship to K-Pop. It's a lot of work."
