Girls’ Generation member Sunny is the latest idol to rock the cover of the fashion publication The Star Magazine. Lee Soon Kyu, known professionally as Sunny, is an American singer and actress currently based in South Korea. She debuted as a member of girl group Girls' Generation in August 2007, who went on to be one of the best-selling artists in South Korea and one of South Korea's most popular girl groups worldwide. Apart from her group's activities, Sunny has participated in numerous side projects including original soundtracks, television variety shows, musical acting and radio hosting.
In her interview, Sunny also talked about the possibility of Girls' Generation's comeback, which industry insiders say will be coming this summer, as well as her opinions on several of her fellow girl groups deciding to part ways. She was first asked about her plans in her 30's, and responded, "Because the delivery of the lyrics is important when singing ballads, a group with a lot of members should not perform ballads, is the general saying. However, I still want to show a ballad performance." On Girls' Generation's possible comeback, she simply said, "You can expect a new album from Girls' Generation within the year."
When asked about some of her fellow girl groups disbanding as of late, Sunny commented, "It's lonely, and disappointing. [The other girls groups and we] shared our worries with one another, and I found them admirable when they won #1 and rejoiced. However, since each of the members have their own passion for music, I am anticipating what kind of solo images they'll show us."
