[Update] Taeyeon - 'W Korea' Magazine, 2017 August Issue
❓Qn: What came to mind the most while working on this album?
💙 Taeyeon: First of all, it felt difficult to express a point within a short part. It may be because I’ve had solo activities. Until recently, I did this and that alone and carried an entire song.
❓Aren’t you a veteran when it comes to showing your charms in a short part divided among many?
💙Taeyeon: I don’t think I have a unique tone. So expressing a short part with impact is still not easy. While recording, I worried a lot about how to match the flow of the members.
❓Of the members, you were the first to start your solo activities. Your first solo song ‘I’ was good, and every time you released a song, the reaction was hot. What did you gain through your solo activities?
💙Taeyeon: I learned that I need to be more detailed. Since everyone is looking just at me. When I’m with SNSD, even if we don’t set it ahead of time, there is a role and charm that each person is naturally responsible for, but I needed to show all of that alone.
❓If you’d had any desire for leadership musically, it must have be settled a bit by now.
💙Taeyeon: I actually let go of leadership, and tend to match and comply to the best of my ability. When I’m solo, I can express myself best when I’m comfortable. Within the team, I can’t be the only comfortable person, so I try to match as much as possible. But as a basis, rather than giving big opinions, when various experts in their field provide help, listening to their thoughts well is comfortable for me and I like it. This time, it was good to listen to what they thought of SNSD’s 10th anniversary.
