Girls’ Day openly talked about issues and hardships the group has been facing since the beginning.  Girls’ Day met with ‘Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook’ and was asked, "Your team name is Girl's Day. Do you like this team name? It sounds like a name that was made without much thought." Minah shared, "We are extremely satisfied. When we first came up with the name, Girl's Day..." Sojin revealed the other names they were almost called, "If you think about the other possible names, Girl's Day is the best... Ice Cream... Diamond...." Minah added they were almost named by the days of the week, "Using Monday, Tuesday, etc. in English... Since our name has the word, day, we were going to use [the names] Wednes Sojin, Thurs Minah..." MC Yoo Hee Yeol joked, "Mon Hyeri sounds good."

The girls were asked to share their thoughts on rival groups such as SISTAR and missA, "To be honest, we were determined that if we rise slowly, we will feel and learn a lot, but we had a lot of emotional distress. We heard that singers follow their [song] titles. Our debut song is 'Tilt My Head'. But we really tilted our heads as we got pushed back... SISTAR's debut song is 'Push Push', and they really pushed [ahead].  Miss A's is 'Bad Girl Good Girl', and they became a 'good girl'."

Yura shared her thoughts on the difficulties of being in a girl group, "Diet. I wanted to eat before too, but I was afraid that my tummy would stick out." When asked what she'd like to eat most, she shared, "Meat, chicken, and dahk galbi tang [spicy chicken]." Sojin also said, "Should I be really honest? Girl groups should be cute and fresh just when you look at them, but I turn thirty years old in a year." MC Yoo Hee Yeol joked in shock, "I thought you looked only around twenty-nine years old." Sojin explained, "I try to make my dongsengs do the cutesy stuff up front, and to follow their energy, I have to try three or four times harder."

Hyeri spoke briefly about her dreams, "Even after time goes by, we want people to look back on this generation and think, 'This generation was Girl's Day.'" Sojin added, "If you think about that time, it was fin.K.L. Something like that. We want to be that kind of group."
