Jessica recently sat down for an interview where she shared touching comments about Girls’ Generation, after debuting with the group 10 years ago.
When asked what Girls’ Generation means to her, Jessica replied, “A precious relationship, something precious, which I spent my youth together with? We went through everything together, including difficult and good moments and more. I think it was a really beautiful period for me that I cannot erase.”
As Girls’ Generation and Jessica recently celebrated their 10th debut anniversary on August 5, Jessica also talked about how she feels to have reached the big milestone.
Jessica first said time has gone by so fast she hadn’t even thought about it being her 10th anniversary. “It was only when my fans told me that I thought, ‘That’s right, this year is my 10th anniversary.’ I feel proud of myself too for reaching my 10th anniversary.”
Jessica’s fans celebrated her anniversary on the big screen in Times Square in New York, and Jessica expressed her thanks for the event. “I think that now that I’m promoting on my own, fans do more support events for me,” she said. “I was really surprised.”
She added, “It gave me strength, and made me want to release my new album faster.”
Jessica was also asked if she’d listened to Girls’ Generation’s new comeback album, which was released to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
“I haven’t been able to listen to the whole album, but I saw a music video clip,” she said. “I think it came out in a way that suits them, and expresses their own unique colors.”
Girls’ Generation’s debut track “Into the New World” has become a classic song, and was a hot topic last year when trainees performed it on “Produce 101.” There’s even currently a drama of the same name.
When asked how she feels about the song, Jessica replied, “It’s a really happy song. A song that I cherish. I saw some buses on my way to the hair salon today, and they were ‘Into the New World’ filming buses. I’m happy. Because it’s a precious song.”
Jessica will be releasing her third mini album entitled “My Decade” on August 9, featuring the title track “Summer Storm.” Check out her teasers here!
