“Between people who truly care and love each other, there are times when you don’t need to say anything at all.
Those emotions are hard to express with words. Things like ‘I love you’ and ‘Thank you’…you don’t really need to say those words.”
— Taeyeon (2009, Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio)
“For me, each one of our SNSD members is like my body.
If one gets hurt or hears bad things from someone else, it hurts me and pains me even more.
It’s impossible for only good things to happen to someone and so there were difficult times and hurtful times.
But during those times, I’m so thankful that we were each other’s strength and each other’s support.”
— Sunny (2009, Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio)
“When we are performing “Way To Go”, there’s a part in the choreography that says ‘Fighting!’ as everyone comes together.

“During these nine months, we really held on, guided, and pushed each other. And I’m so happy that we were able to have those precious times together.
We’ve been through so much together so let’s leap together even stronger now. And… I love you.”
— Yuri (2009, Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio)
“When there are hurtful times and sad times, I’ve come to find that there is no one else but these nine people here.
Even really close friends or managers… if they’re not in Girls’ Generation, no one really knows and understands.
There were so many times like that and I wish that there will be no more times of hurt and sadness that brings us to tears… I love you, our Girls’ Generation.”
— Taeyeon (2009, Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio)
“To my precious members, who I hope to be with forever, I love you and thank you so much.”

— Taeyeon (2011, KBS’s Girls’ Generation Star Life Theater)
