Seoul — It was reported that Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon confessed that she once ran away due to the difficulty of dieting while she was a trainee.

The popular girl group made a group guest appearance on the Sept 1 broadcast of tvN’s variety show You Quiz on the Block. 

During the show, Taeyeon shared the story from back in her trainee days. She was asked if she ever thought of giving up before debuting as a singer, as reported by Allkpop.

According to the singer, “I wanted someone to hold onto me. I didn’t want to let go of everything. I suddenly remembered this, but back then, I was chubbier than the others.

Dieting was so difficult. I had to sing, but they would tell me that my body had to be skinny too. But [losing weight] didn’t happen easily. As a result, I got so angry and frustrated that I went back to my home.”
