SNSD’s Sooyoung recently said, “I auditioned seventy times to be an actress before I debuted as a singer, but I failed them all.”
On September 20, the lifestyle magazine First Look released a pictorial of Sooyoung along with an interview with her.
Currently appearing in tvN’s drama series The 3rd Hospital, Sooyoung said in the interview, “I was nervous about debuting as an actress at first, but I could focus on acting as time went by.”
