These Girls’ Generation Members Once Got Into A 5-Year Fight Over A Burger

What started out as a harmless lunch soon turned into a 5-year grudge for Tiffany and Sooyoung.

Even the closest friends fight sometimes, and K-Pop idols are no exception. Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun once revealed that the group fought over lots of petty things in the past, just like old married couples.

That’s definitely true for Tiffany and Sooyoung, who once fought over something as petty as a burger and didn’t let it go for over 5 years!

On KBS Happy Together 3, Tiffany revealed the silly fight they got into way back in 2012.

The Girls’ Generation members were enjoying a filling lunch before their concert, and everyone ordered a burger except for Tiffany. When Tiffany saw how much Sooyoung was enjoying her burger, she couldn’t help but ask for a taste.

Sooyoung allowed Tiffany a bite and all was well… until Sooyoung noticed the big lipstick stain Tiffany left on her food!

Tiffany said that Sooyoung, who is sensitive about food, angrily told her not to leave her lipstick all over it. But Tiffany didn’t see the big deal.

What’s so bad about lipstick from a friend?


Even though Tiffany brushed off her upset at the time, she admitted she never forgot the incident, even 5 years later.

I was a little traumatized. I did feel really bad.


A month before their Happy Together 3 appearance in 2017, Sooyoung noticed that Tiffany became overly conscious about eating without leaving any marks. She reenacted the hilarious way Tiffany eats to keep her food makeup free.

One day, all those years later, Tiffany made a point of showing her food to Sooyoung and boasting about how she didn’t leave any lipstick marks. Sooyoung couldn’t believe it!

You’re unbelievable, you hold grudges for such a long time!


And there’s a good chance that Tiffany still remembers BurgerGate to this very day. Even after that, when Sooyoung offered Tiffany a sip of her milkshake on her Instagram Story, Tiffany hesitated and asked, “What if I get lipstick on it?”

But despite their silly arguments, Sooyoung and Tiffany are still the best of friends.

The pair warmed SONEs hearts last year when Sooyoung flew out to Los Angeles to sing “Into the New World” with Tiffany at her North American Lips on Lips Showcase Tour.

Sooyoung and Tiffany aren’t the only SM idols who have had ridiculous food fights—Super Junior’s Heechul and Eunhyuk once got into beef over an egg.

When Eunhyuk sneakily ate the egg from Heechul’s fried rice, Heechul got so enraged that he flipped the table and stormed off! Moral of the story? Don’t mess with your friends’ food.
