Following him, presenter Choi Soo-young, with her proficient Japanese, shared, “Japan is a very meaningful place for me. It’s a place where my first challenge in life began. At the age of 12, I debuted as a singer in Japan. The three years of activities in Japan became something precious that can’t be changed. That challenge made me who I am today.“
She added, “In 2002, the challenge in Japan fostered my dream of becoming a singer. In 2007, the challenge as Girls’ Generation made me experience the best moments of my life. And now, I’m continuing another challenge as actress Choi Soo-young. When you take on a new challenge, you face a ‘bias’ that you have to overcome. The moment we jump over that hurdle and prove the real ‘me’! I believe that we change and mature even more.”
