The interview with KBS 2 “Entertainment Weekly” aired on August 28th revealed the girls’ reactions on the showcase at Ariake Coliseum (August 25th) and also their experiences in Japan.
When asked about the reactions from the fans, Sooyoung answered,”We never thought that there were so many people coming to out showcase. Usually fans sit while waving their light sticks but to our surprise, everyone stood up, waving their light sticks and sang our songs(lyrics in Korean).”
On the difference between Korean and Japanese fans, Hyoyeon jokingly said,”language” and the girls burst into laughter. Yuri then replied,”We were amazed that some of the fans who came to see us dressed in our stage costume”. Tiffany made it simple by saying,”cosplay”.
The host then asked if the girls have experienced the effects of their popularity in Japan. Sooyoung answered,”Not long ago, not me but one of our members went to a supermarket.” Upon hearing Sooyoung’s statement, Sunny giggled, hinting that Sooyoung was actually referring to her. Sooyoung added,”She went to a convenience store and got spotted by fans. I heard that she kept denying that she’s a member of SNSD because she did not have make-up on at that moment.” Hyoyeon then explained the reason for going out without their make-up on by saying,”…because if we go out without make-up, no one would be able to recognize us.” Upon hearing that the girls burst into laughter.
Before the end of the interview, Yuri said that SNSD hope to tour the cities in Japan and spread their music to all over the country.
