Seohyun shares how she managed to stay out of controversies for 12 years


Seohyun talked about how she never got stirred up in a controversy. 

In an interview with 'GQ,' Seohyun is asked how she was able to maintain a good image without any trouble for the past 12 years. The idol actress replied, "Ever since I was young, I thought, 'I'm the maknae of Girls' Generation. I cannot ruin this,' and 'I'm this kind of person so I need to keep the rules.'"

She continued, "But I gradually relaxed once I realized that I can do well myself without being so concerned about the rules."

Seohyun also shared how she relieves stress. She said, "I hit the punch machine, go shooting, or go for rides on convertibles when I get stressed. I want to ride convertibles even when I become a grandma."

More of Seohyun's interview and photos can be found in 'GQ.'

Seo's probably the one idol that would surprise me the most if she ever got into a scandal... altho I suppose that squeaky clean image would be a nice cover story haha

Anyway, now I have this image of a 80 y. old Seohyun in huge sunglasses driving around in a convertible with three poodles on the backseat.

I mean, I'm not saying she didn't work hard and keep her nose to the proverbial grindstone, because every single member of Girls Generation both past and present did just that. However, I also think it helped that she had an overbearing and controlling company that probably made her sign a huge laundry list of obligations and regulations in her contract that would basically keep her out of the business if she messed anything up. Case in point, Jessica Jung- why do you think we've never heard anything solid from her in terms of an actual complaint about her previous time at SM? Not saying this to open up that can of worms again (as everyone has their opinion on that dark time for SNSD), but there are clearly things she'd like to say that even now, legally, she can't. So I think part of it was Seohyun looking forward to the future, and another aspect was definitely her company keeping her under their metaphorical thumb while she was there.
