For Girls' Generation member Taeyeon, stardom and fame came much later. The singer did not dream of becoming a part of a band. When she was in the second grade, her only ambition was to enter an agency and build a music career later.
Taeyeon, 26, revealed snippets of her personal journey on "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook," which was held Friday, Feb. 19, 2016. The night was dazzling for fans, as the singer delivered a powerful performance of her songs "Rain" and "Gemini."
The K-pop star said that her relationship with SM Entertainment goes back a long way, to the time when she was just a kid, Allkpop reports. Taeyeon said that she simply auditioned at the best youth selection contest and was chosen to be part of SM Entertainment, one of Korea's biggest entertainment companies.
The "Lion Heart" singer's humility was visible when she spoke about her celebrity status. "Because everyone is looking only at me, I am extremely nervous and feel burdened. I can't think of anything to say when there's a camera."
The SNSD member added that she promoted her latest album, "I" on "Sketchbook" because she really wanted to meet Hee Yeol. The singer made an aegyo and said," I wanted to see Hee Yeol oppa"
At the point, Hee Yeol jokingly added, "If you're a woman, you definitely would want to."
