S Cawaii! Magazine Interview - DEC 2020

What Message Does Taeyeon Want To Convey To Women?

Taeyeon is becoming more beautiful inside and out. She spares no effort to appear beautiful before her fans and continues to evolve as an artist. Meanwhile, in the aftermath of a tragic event in her life, what is the message that she wants to convey?

S Cawaii: 
In the new song '#GirlsSpkOut', featuring Chanmina, the message seems to be that "speaking your mind and showing your true self will have a positive impact on your life’.

I believe that whenever we do anything in this life, in this world, it's very important to know yourself very well. And I think that the most important thing is to love yourself and to treasure yourself. Over the last few years, people who were very important to me passed away. I feel like everyone living in this world has forgotten the idea that "my existence is important’, so I wanted to convey that "everyone is important". I've had strong feelings lately that loving yourself and believing in yourself is crucial.

S Cawaii: 
This is your second mini-album in Japan. Please tell us about an episode in the process of making it.

There were many times when I felt like it was my first album in Japan. I felt like a different person while recording each song, because of all the different genres. I think I made a good effort to properly deliver the expression of each song. It was the first time I've had a dance song as the first single, and it was my first collaboration. Each time I make a new album, what I always try to do is make better music and show better performances. My goal is to build on my previous experience and continue singing songs that listeners can relate to.

S Cawaii: 
This time, your collaboration with Japanese artists Chanmina and eill is a hot topic. Please tell us how you came to collaborate with them, and what you enjoyed about the music video shoot.

When I listened to "#GirlsSpkOut" for the first time, I consulted with the staff and told them that I thought a collaboration might be good. Working with other artists is not very common for me. I think there were mutual synergies with this collaboration, and working with Chanmina gave me a lot of good energy and motivation. I was surprised when Chanmina told me that she'd attended Girls’ Generation concerts.

Taeyeon says, "Self-improvement is difficult, but I believe it's the first step towards self-confidence." For 3 December 2020's "S Cawaii! Body Revolution" issue, we also interviewed Taeyeon about how she maintains her style and beauty. Please check out the magazine!


The Secret of Taeyeon's Beauty


Q1. S CAWAII: During these coronavirus times, have there been any changes in your emotions or lifestyle?


TAEYEON: At home I take care of my skin, watch movies, and write a diary. Even when I'm staying at home, I always feel so busy that I never have enough time. I feel like I've become better friends with my dog Zero. And I'm very sad that I was unable to have a Japan tour, which I'd been preparing to do before Corona. I want to see you all on stage soon.


Q2. S CAWAII: Please tell us what you do to stay beautiful.


TAEYEON: I love healthy salads! And as much as I love salads, I love sweets too. So I wake up early every day to eat what I like to eat, and make sure to do aerobics for an hour. I work out as much as I eat.


Q3. S CAWAII: How do you maintain your great sense of style?


TAEYEON: I make sure that anything I wear looks good on me. For example, I try to keep from eating or exercising too much. And I try not to lose my fundamental and natural qualities. We often think about ourselves in this way while looking in the mirror, you know?


Q4. S CAWAII: You've done a lot of filming in your career. Please tell us the secrets of taking beautiful photographs and selfies.


TAEYEON: I think it's important to know yourself well. And to take a lot of pictures! I personally don't like using apps, because I don't want to use unnatural filters. So usually I take photos without those kinds of apps. Recently, my smile feels a bit unnatural, so I take photos with no facial expression. I hope I'll be able to laugh more often...
