i was actually shocked at how well taeyeon’s purpose did in terms of sales. Best day 1 sales on hanteo by any female act, first kpop female soloist to reach top 5 (peaked at #2) on itunes US, second fastest real-time all-kill in 2019, album by female kpop soloist with most #1 on itunes (18) etc. i really did not think she had this kind of reach, especially internationally, but god am i happy people are supporting her. She really deserves it.
what’s the deal with everyone and their mother claiming they ‘almost were a member of girls’ generation’ ?? with the exception of stella who was originally supposed to be the visual, and the girl (whose name i don’t remember) who was supposed to be the maknae instead of seohyun, none of them are being truthful, and i’m totally living for the members dragging them. being a trainee during the same time as the members doesn’t make you an almost-member lol
