On November 26th’s episode of ‘Invincible Youth 2‘, the girls of G8 discussed their stress factors in a small talk show led by maknaes Suzy and Jiyoung.

Hyoyeon confessed, “It’s really hard for me to pretend. I get really embarrassed when I have to pretend to be cute and pretty. I am really easygoing. As part of SNSD, it’s hard to be easygoing.”

She continued, “The other members are good at aegyo. When we monitor our performances, the ones who show aegyo get on camera the most. I try really hard to do it, but I can’t because it tickles my heart. I can act really suave and cool, but acting pretty and cute still tickles my heart.”

The documentary also showed the girl group’s past moments where viewers could directly see the difference between then and now.  Four years ago, SNSD were young girls who went to High School with light make-up.  Now they have matured into world class idols, befitting the title, “Asia’s number one girl group”.
