“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 oppas or manager oppas…if they’re not in SNSD, 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 SNSD.”
- Kim Taeyeon (Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio, 13th January 2009).
If it wasn’t for those friends, the amount of love that I’m receiving right now as a member of SNSD, I could never have received that if I’m alone.”
- Kwon Yuri (Invincible Youth Ep.1, 2009)
“During these nine months, as we had our break time, I think we grew to know each other better…And during this time, so many things happened and we grew more mature and learned to truly love and care for each other.”
- Jessica Jung (Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio, 13th January 2009).
“To my precious members, who I hope to be with forever, I love you and thank you so much.”
- Choi Sooyoung (Melon Music Award, 16th Dec 2009)
“I truly have nothing but gratitude for my unnies. I’m just so thankful and I really can’t say anything other than just thank you.”
- Seo Juhyun (Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio, 13th January 2009)
“Every single member is so precious to me and like family to me..I may joke around with them a lot but I can’t talk seriously with them..because it’s awkward for me. But on the inside, I really do think of each one of you so much and I want you all to know that.”
- Kim Hyoyeon (Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio, 13th January 2009).
“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.”
-Lee Soonkyu (Taeyeon’s Chin Chin Radio, 13th January 2009).
