Sooyoung looks back on her early twenties in recent 'GQ' pictorial & interview

Former Girls' Generation member Sooyoung was featured in the latest 'GQ' pictorial.

During the interview, Sooyoung looked back on her twenties and discussed her love for photography.

"I look at these younger idols who are promoting in their twenties, and I think to myself, 'you are so pretty during your early twenties,' even though I hadn't thought of it that way then," said Sooyoung. 

She continued: "Before turning thirty, I decided to hold a photo exhibit to celebrate my twenties. But, when I saw Linda McCartney's exhibition, I realized that I had a long way to go. For an exhibit that I would really like to do, I probably have to wait until my forties. The small things around me -- Girls' Generation members' lovely faces with no make-up, the lively scenes during our practice, Mom's face, Dad's hands -- I do not post these photos on SNS; instead, I hide them. One day, I will get to reveal them just as Linda had done."

Sooyoung, whose birthday is on February 10th, has held her photo exhibition last November, titled 'This-Star is Shining' ('this-star' could also be phonetically translated as 'farewell'.)

Check out the rest of the pictorial below!

"Former Girls' Generation member" - Isn't she still a member and only changed the company?

Based on what we know about how much SM loves people who chose to leave the company it's very hard to believe they would be interested in working with the three girls who did not renew their contracts.

You know what, when SNSD actually does something again, then I'll believe that, but not until.

Correct! She signed with Echo Global Group who said they were "pleased to be accompanied by Sooyoung, a leading Korean artist who "IS" (not was) a member of Girls' Generation." Thay also said that they will support her should GG's promotions start up again. So yes, she is still a member of SNSD. ^^

It is so true as someone who has now turned 26 - I look back when I was 20-24 & just think jesus I was so young & so much of what I was worried about has literally no effect on me now & I wish I enjoyed it more. I see my friends now who are younger & 22-23 who are freaking out that they might not have a job for a few months & how that will look on their resume & stressing about all this stuff that actually doesn't even matter. these idols are so pretty & youthful & they are spending it working nonstop & not having a life & having a normal youth taken from them & it unfortunately is now the "norm" for idols with fans screaming "bUt ThIs Is WhAt ThEy SiGnEd Up FoR, wHaT dId ThEy ExPeCt" & so I get what she is saying. It's these little moments you don't think of or don't realize when you're that young that you come to cherish & long for again when you're older. Being in your late 20's is NOTHING like being in your early 20's. Appreciate it you youngins!!!

Did she lose weight? her face is too pale also and this article is depressing, Sooyoung might be feeling melancholy and regret not resigning with SM

I don't know why she isn't acknowledged as SM's greatest beauty, but whatever.
