Taeyeon told the unreleased story of why she ran away from home because of dieting.
On September 1, the 121st episode of tvN’s reality show “Yoo Quiz On The Block” was aired starring 8 members of Girls’ Generation (Taeyeon, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, and Seohyun).
During the show, Taeyeon revealed the untold story of her running away from home because she was so tired of the harsh training.
Being asked if there was any time that she thought of giving up on her debut completely, she took a moment to think and replied, “I wanted to get caught. I didn’t mean to drop my dream entirely.”
Taeyeon later explained, “I suddenly remember a story. Back then, I used to be chubbier than my other friends. Dieting was really exhausted. I had to get slimmer in order to sing so things wouldn’t work if I looked fat like that. Therefore, I got angry at myself and ran away from home.”
Seohyun, the youngest member, also recalled the past story of how she had to struggle to manage her body figure: “During the debut days, I had to go on a diet, and the managers didn’t let me eat anything. Therefore, I remembered that I had to hide my chocolate and eat secretly.”
