Girls’ Generation‘s Seohyun recently brought fans to laughter with her realization of how young rookie artists are these days.
Seohyun shared, “I realized that it’s been a long time since my debut. While fulfilling my MC duties on a music show, I realize that while I look at rookie artists each week. I am Girls’ Generation’s maknae, and as I watch other groups have ’96ers, I think to myself, ‘so there are people born in ’96.’ But in the past when other seniors asked me of my age and I replied, ‘I’m ’91′, I realize that this is how the seniors must have felt.”
Sooyoung shared, “As the number of rookies increase, I know their team names, but there are some members’ names that I don’t know. When we debuted, we couldn’t understand why people thought we were all similar. We are all so different. But I understand now.”
When asked if they no longer consider themselves a girl group now that they are in their 20s, Taeyeon stated, “We still don’t have any members who got married or gave birth to a child, so we are still girls”, to which Sooyoung added, “Rather than giving the meaning of ‘Girls’ Generation’, now it feels like we have become one.”
