Girls’ Generation’s Tifanny says that idols these days are ‘lazy’

Tiffany discussed her experiences in promoting the Girls’ Generation members for their 15th anniversary when she made an appearance as a special guest on the May 19 episode of “Radio Star.”

She said, “I went to a music program broadcast for the first time in a while. I went for the 15th-anniversary project for Girls’ Generation. We would dance diligently and work hard even though the camera was far away because we wanted to stand out even if we were dancing in the back of the stage.”

Tiffany continued to to explain, “But these days, there’s something called individual ‘fancam’ recording, so maybe that’s why idols are so lax (lazy). So when I saw it, I thought, ‘These kids are rehearsing so lazily’ and ‘Why are they doing it so half-heartedly?'”

“So I thought they were just doing sound check but then when you do sound checks, you need to make sure the breathing and positions are all correct,” she said.

“There were a lot of new things I experienced and thought (idols) were more lax. But you know? There’s a saying ‘First time, last time, every time'” she said, explaining her thoughts on how an idol should be on stage. She also shared her belief that an artist should give their best in every moment, even if it’s a rehearsal.
