“Being healthy is definitely my biggest wish. I got a cast three times this year. I hurt my wrist while filming Dream Team, hurt my ankle while getting ready for the concert. This time, the ligament on my knee was torn. I poured in everything preparing for the ‘Hoot’ album, but I was disappointed in myself for making all the effort come to nothing.
On the other hand, I really wanted to go back on stage, so it was a chance for me to realize the importance of my work. When I was discouraged, the members told me, “When you get on stage after a while, your eyes will pour out passion” and comforted me. The fans also said SNSD has to have 9 members no matter what, and gave us their love. I was touched by their love. While I was injured, I studied Japanese as well. I was scolded so many times by Sooyoung for not being able to speak, but now I get complimented.”
