During the press conference for her upcoming weekend drama A Man Who Sets The Table, Girls Generations Sooyoung shared how her own pre-debut struggles helped her with her role in the drama.
In the drama, Sooyoung will be taking on the role of Lee Ruri, a character who, like many young people in Korea, is a job seeker. She said, Before I debuted with Girls Generation, I auditioned for 100 different projects. I was a trainee for seven years before debuting [with Girls Generation] during my second year in high school. Since the concept of an expiration date exists with girl groups, there was a part of me that was concerned about my future, sharing how she reflected on her own experience to better portray her role.
