Sooyoung Reveals Girls’ Generation Will Release Studio Album For Upcoming Comeback + Talks About Boyfriend Jung Kyung Ho And Advice For Juniors
On the July 4 broadcast of tvN Story’s variety talk show “Take Care of Me This Week” (literal title), Sooyoung joined hosts Sung Dong Il and Go Chang Suk to visit the set of “Mr. Sunshine” and explore various foods and drinks.
During the episode, Sooyoung confessed, “What I realized in life is that…the money I earned before my 30s was not my money. I think the money I earned before my 30s was just luck. The money I earned after turning 30 has begun to feel very valuable.”
She continued, “To my juniors too, I want to recommend becoming financially and emotionally independent from your surroundings a bit earlier, at a slightly younger age. That’s because when you promote in the entertainment industry from a young age, you don’t know what independence is, you don’t know who you are, and time just flies by. That’s why you really have to take time for yourself.”
Later, the trio talked about how Korean actors were gradually being spotlighted in Hollywood. Sooyoung noted that Go Chang Suk has the right gaze for romance dramas and Sung Dong Il asked him, “If you receive [a casting offer] for a romance, are you going to be able to shave?” Go Chang Suk made everyone laugh as he replied, “I could shave all the hair on my body.”
Sooyoung then interjected, “No, you can’t shave. This is [your] charm,” revealing that her ideal type is someone with facial hair. Referring to Sooyoung’s long-term boyfriend Jung Kyung Ho, Sung Dong Il chimed in, “The person I know doesn’t have facial hair.” Sooyoung wittingly responded with a laugh, “Don’t they usually go opposite [from your ideal type]?”
Eventually, Sung Dong Il asked Sooyoung how many years it’s been since Girls’ Generation’s last comeback. Sooyoung replied, “We’re returning for the first time in five years with a full-length album,” confirming that the group will release a studio album next month!
