On the February 28th episode of SBS ‘Strong Heart‘, Seohyun remarked, “We were aware of how huge this show was in America, enough for member Tiffany who grew up in the States to cry after we received the invitation to perform. But in the beginning, we had discussions of not going through with it.”
“It’s a tremendous show, but we didn’t think we would be able to put on our best performance, so we were going to decline,” she said. “Because the Letterman Show is a talk show, the stage is extremely small. Not all of us could fit and we didn’t think we could properly perform.”
The second reason Girls’ Generation wanted to decline was because of the music. The version of “The Boys” that Americans are accustomed to is not the original Girls’ Generation version, but the club remix version with a feature by rapper Snoop Dogg.
“After discussions with the staff members, we decided to go through with the show after they enlarged the stage for us a little bit, and we prepared really hard,” Seohyun continued.
‘Strong Heart’ then played the clip of the girls’ performance, and the studio sent a warm round of applause to the Girls’ Generation members.
