It has been almost five years since Girls’ Generation made their debut but the girls confessed that they still feel nervous when they go on stage.
Jessica, Tiffany and Taeyeon participated in the recent recording of KBS 2TV’s ‘Happy Together Season 3′, which will be aired on May 10th. According to Jessica, when they first kicked off the promotional activities for ‘Hoot’ on three music programs, she made mistakes with the lyrics.
Jessica said that even though they have been performing many times, she still suffers from ‘stage nervousness’ and in fact, she feels even more nervous going on a small stage rather than a huge one.
Tiffany, who is currently promoting with Taeyeon and Seohyun as a subunit group TaeTiSeo, said that she could feel her hands and knees trembling while performing on stage. She also talked about how Taeyeon’s hands were shaking while holding the microphone during an interview which was carried out right after their performance. Taeyeon then stated that although Girls’ Generation has been active for almost 5 years, they still feel nervous.
In this episode of ‘Happy Together 3′, YoonA, the female lead in KBS 2TV’s ‘Love Rain’ made a surprise appearance much to the delight of the staff, comedians and guests on the show.
