Because our members use the same stylists, we share the same coats. There was once I wore clothes for a performance and in the pocket, there was 58,000 won that was crumpled up, placed together with a receipt... The receipt is for a pig trotters shop.. I took them ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It (money) is already mine~~ Must belong to a member~ I took it and bought delicious stuff~ Are our members listening now?
[ENG TRANS] Suzy Interview on Grazia magazine Sept Issue
Q: I can see that you can sing songs well with only basic instrumental accompaniment. A: I really love singing. During shows, I would always go first saying “I will sing” even though no one asks me to. *laughs* As a girl group member on stage, I do not have many chances to sing an entire song alone.
Q: Since you are now practicing pansori, your singing skills must have improved. A: Yes, it really helps. It doesn’t matter if I can do it or can’t do it. I really want to learn from a skillful mentor. I don’t care how the movie will fare, I have learned so many things in the process. *laughs*
Q: You keep humming as you do the photoshoot, which song do you like most recently? A: “Alone” by Dalchong. (takes out earpiece) Please listen to it once.
Q: “Suzy’s ballad song” feel is here. A: It’s worth it, right? I think I sang it for about 300 times today. *laughs*
Q: When people heard I am doing an interview with you, the guys around me said they wanted to come as well with their eyes real big. A: Haha, really?
Q:You knew it yourself right? You’re getting even prettier nowadays. A: Me? I’m on a diet recently but I couldn’t hold it in and ate rice cakes. *laughs* Maybe it’s the baby fats that I am losing. That’ why I am getting slender.
Q: What do you do the first thing you wake up? A: I would always look at the time. Since I can’t hear the alarm, so setting it will be useless.
Q: Are you living alone now? A: Yes, I am staying in the dormitory alone. It’s weird I can’t hear the alarm, so manager oppa will always call the house phone.
Q: Do you sleep a lot? A: No, I don’t. I don’t take naps too. If I wake up early in the morning, I can’t go back to sleep even if I do not have anything to do.
Q: What do you do at that point in time? A: Sing. *laughs*
Q: You will get chased out by neighbors *laughs* A: That’s why after I become of legal age, I really wanted to get a driver’s license. I want to turn the music full blast and drive. I practiced a lot too. I drive when I have time.
Q: How long have you been driving? A: It would be one year in the next two months.
Q: Yo are driving well now, right? A: I have been driving well since the beginning *laughs*
Q: You know how to change lanes well then? A: Yes, that’s the basic isn’t it?
Q: Do you have a route you really like? A: I will just drive and when the thought of going home comes to mind, I just go back. So the route I take every time is different.
Q: Do you have anything other than driving you want to do after becoming an adult? A: Having a cup of beer with my friends after finishing work, I love it the most.
Q: Do you like beer? A: As long as it’s alcohol, I will like it.
Q: Are you the type to have fried chicken with beer? A: No, I am not. I don’t really know how it taste.
Q: Which types of dishes do you like to go with beer? A: Taco wasabi. I like soups and something spicy. But if I eat those at night, I will swell the next day.
Q: What do you do before you sleep? A: I usually use the massaging machine for my legs and some exercises for my abdominal muscles. Just a little bit. And…I also like opening the fridge to take a look before going to bed.
Q: Why do you do that? A: Well…*laughs* It’s a habit. My mom will ask me every time why I do it.
Q: When do you need patience the most? A: Those days I feel like drinking beer. My lesson (pansori perhaps) ends around 1 am but I have to film a photoshoot the next day, so I have to endure the struggle.
Q: Then what about the times you want to play the most? There were such times at work right? A: I still feel that it’s tough even now. Especially when there is something delicious right in front of you! Things like pig trotter mom bought after going home from a day of filming. At that time, I have to fight with myself.
Q: You’re amazing. That’s what you do in this field , isn’t it? Times like “ah~ I don’t care anymore” don’t always come. A: I belong to those kind of people who don’t think too much before I do something. If I really want to do something, I will set my mind to it to succeed. There are also times when I just play without even sleeping. That’s when I feel like I am living a meaningful life.
Q: I am worried that you only do work but it’s good to hear. A: I usually come out and enjoy myself to regulate my life. By doing that, I feel more professional so it feels great. I don’t just think about good things, I also think about implications of my actions. If I do it this way, will it have a big impact? Do things when it’s time to do things, play when it’s time to play. I am trying hard to live a stress-free life.
Q: It took me 10 years in this industry to realized what you said, and it took you only 4 years. A: Ah really? It’s not really easy to put it into action. When you decided about something and put your heart into it, it is really important. When one’s mentality wavers about his decision, work might become meaningless in a moment.
Q: So the period of growth and success comes from overworking yourself too much. A: Yeah, and because of those times, I will benefit today. Looking back, I don’t really feel tired while working so hard. However today, if I work too hard, my body will give up. I have changed now. I will try to lead my life naturally.
Q: Do you feel blessed right now? A: I do, because I have what I wanted. If there is anyone I wanted to see, I can see the person right away. It becomes a memorable experience so I am enjoying it….but after thinking deeply, I am not happy these days.
Q: Why all of a sudden? A: I don’t know. I feel the happiness just disappears all of a sudden. You understand, right? AH, I’m having a headache all of a sudden.
Q: What are you afraid the most? A: Losing someone precious to me. I feel so happy because of them, that’s why I feel scared.
Q: Two years ago, you had your own world(way of thinking). And I heard your thoughts are quite more mature compared to others who are of your age.
S: Come to think of it, I have become more serious than before(laughs). Before, I get surprised whenever I look at my old diary. That time I was really full of “fighting”. But nowadays I tend to think more about this and that. That’s why before/when I do something, I become really timid. I feel like I will cause trouble, I feel like I’ll regret. There are just times where it’s really hard for me to decide.
Q: Suzy has been a trend lately, do you feel anxious? Or you just enjoy it.
S: I don’t know about being a trend(laughs). Anyways, it seems like I’m in. I won’t be able to continue receiving this much love all the time right? When else can I ever see this much love. Wherever I go, everyone does good(have good skills) so I have no choice but to do better. Honestly, I think that’s very dangerous. That’s why I tend to be more careful.
