Girls’ Generation talks about stalkers and stage wardrobe malfunctions on ‘Strong Heart’

November 16, 2011

On November 15th, part 2 of ‘Strong Heart’s Talk Selection Contest’ was aired. Girls’ Generation’s Yoona, Tiffany, Taeyeon and Yuri appeared as guests and they showed off their talking skills once again.

As the topic shifted to blood types, Yoona talked about her losing temper at a stalker outside their dorm, revealing her hot temper as a B-type person.

After touching on the previously discussed ‘Jessica’s stalker incident’, Yoona continued, “I’ve also met the man who peeped around in front of our dorm. As I saw him going up through the staircase while I took the lift, I lost my temper immediately, shut the door of our dorm and kept staring at the direction of the staircase.”

Finally, Yoona witnessed the man peeking silently and shouted at him before signaling for the man to go to her. Yoona continued explaining, “Because I suddenly lost my temper, I asked the man if he lived here, then told him that he should not be doing that (trespassing).”

Yoona then said, “However, after knowing more, he turned out to be a very nice fan of us so I wasn’t angry anymore.”

Besides that, Yoona also told the story of her becoming ‘Torn Yoona’.

Yoona said, “We had special stages during the Japan SMTown concert a few months ago. There was a dance step where I was required to collapse onto the floor with hands stretched and stand up again. The moment I sat down, there was a weird sound. Although I felt something weird, I could not check anything. So I started dancing cautiously.”

Yoona continued, “I was afraid that photos were taken, so I went to search for them. Fortunately, no photo caught the moment. I’m worried that as I said this, people who have the photos will upload it. I sincerely hope that people will not do it.”

Funnily, after hearing Yoona’s story, Yuri confessed that she also danced cautiously as she thought the same would happen to hers, making the studio burst into laughter.

Taeyeon also confessed, “I once had my stage costume torn at the side and the clothes stuck to the body as I perspired a lot. As I covered the area with my hand and continued singing, I couldn’t bear with it and said ‘Help me!’ into the mic.”

Girls’ Generation talks about diets and fried chickens on ‘Strong Heart’

November 9, 2011

On the episode of SBS’s Strong Heart aired on November 9th, Girls’ Generation members Yoona, Yuri, Tiffany and Taeyeon made an appearance as guests. According to AGB Nielsen Media Research Korea, the audience rating of that particular episode showed an increase of 2.2% compared to the previous week’s 9.9%.

During the episode, Yuri recalled a story about ordering fried chicken for supper after a call from Kara’s Goo Hara. Yuri said, “One day, we received a call from Goo Hara, who asked if the fried chicken brand we endorse is tasty. After the conversation, we felt hungry and decided to order chicken as supper.”

She continued, “We called the chicken shop and placed an order but we were told that it will take an hour. We called again, revealing that we are Girls’ Generation, and asked for faster delivery, but the shopkeeper hung up the call! So after a while, the members gathered and sang the CM song into the phone to convince the shopkeeper!” The studio burst into laughter at Yuri’s words.

On a different note, Yuri also explained the misconception about Girls’ Generation’s diet menu. She said, “Among all the rumors related to Girls’ Generation, the most ridiculous has to be the one that says we eat only 1,500 calories a day! It also says that we only have 9 broccolis and 1 sweet potato per meal. However, it seemed as though we have been eating more than 3,000 calories for each meal.”

She added, “Our manager oppa even said that our food expenditure is higher than Super Junior’s!”
