I think I’ve learned to put myself first since I started acting. I’ve done a lot of thinking. After continually asking myself, ‘What do I need now?’ and finding my own answers, I feel I’ve learned to look after myself better. This has made me value myself more, and it’s helped me a great deal. – Jisoo
Ten years ago, I used to practice using Lady Gaga’s music, so of course it was a great honor to collaborate with her. But somehow, it seemed more like we had become friends and decided it would be nice to work together. And when performing at Coachella, I wasn’t really aware of how large the stage was or how much the audience was enjoying the show, because I was preoccupied with completing the performance without any mistakes. While other members said, ‘JISOO! There were so many people out there. This is so exciting!’ I just gasped for breath and replied, ‘I wasn’t aware. I was just focusing on the people in the front row. I was in a daze.’ I still don’t feel very different, so it’s no wonder that I haven’t changed much. That’s probably why people around me say I’m still the same as I was before my debut – Jisoo
