[Interview] SNSD’s Taeyeon Says Competition with 2NE1 is Enjoyable
One of the hottest issues in K-Pop these days is the comeback of Girls’ Generation (SNSD) and 2NE1.
Despite the fierce and tense competition expected between the two girl groups, SNSD’s Taeyeon revealed that the competition is ‘enjoyable.’
Having made its comeback through Mnet’s M Countdown on March 6, SNSD received much of the spotlight after performing Mr.Mr. and Wait a Minute.
Meeting with enews before the performance took place, Taeyeon talked about her thoughts on finally making a comeback and upcoming competition with 2NE1.
When asked about the upcoming competition with 2NE1, Taeyeon said, “Many people have been showing their interest in the competition. Personally, I think it’s really fun and enjoyable. Not only 2NE1 but many others, such as CN Blue, have made their comeback. I hope everyone can enjoy their performances.”
Taeyeon also said, “We don’t really stress about it (competition with 2NE1), since we both have very different colors. I’m just really happy to be promoting along with many other singers. I also hope that our fans will continue to support us.”
Putting priority on keeping SNSD together and showing it to the fans over competition with others, Taeyeon concluded, “Our basic goal is to keep the top place. But more important is to keep SNSD together, and showing our activities as a whole to fans.”
