"I've heard a lot of people say that a producer suits them better. Among the comments left by a fan, there's something that sticks in my mind: 'Tiffany produces Tiffany's character.' I heard this while I was a singer, and even though I was an actress, I liked Tiffany Young's character. “I believe that if we keep making it, we will be able to have fun doing it for a long time like we do now.”

Tiffany Young, a member of the group Girls' Generation and an actress, met with Ten Asia at a cafe located in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 26th and told general stories about her activities in the entertainment industry, including Disney+'s 'Uncle Samsik'. Tiffany Young, who is famous for her beautiful eye smile, spread a smile that shines brighter than jewels and a lively energy to the reporters throughout the interview, making them naturally cheer for her. Tiffany Young boasted a fresh and fresh charm that made it hard to believe that it was her 18th debut anniversary.

'Uncle Samsik' is a passionate story about Song Kang-ho, the uncle of Samsik, who always feeds Samshik three meals a day even during the war, and Byun Yo-han (Kim San), an elite young man who wanted to create a country where everyone eats well and lives well, trying to achieve their dream together in a time of chaos.

In the play, Tiffany Young plays the role of Rachel Jeong, the director of the Albright Foundation. Rachel Jeong is the person leading the foundation's business. He met Kim San, who dreamed of a national reconstruction project in Korea, and began to take interest in his goal.

Tiffany Young expressed her meaningful feelings, saying, "It's still a dream-like time. I've said hello to people in the music, brand, and fashion fields, but this is my second time in acting. I'm having a happy and grateful time."

He said he was happy to participate in 'Uncle Three' and said, "I didn't just analyze Rachel's character itself. I studied all the characters very hard and analyzed their relationships a lot. After looking at the characters I analyzed, the director approached Rachel with a unique idea. “They praised me for making it feel more three-dimensional,” he said proudly.

"I studied senior Song Kang-ho's script diligently, but I was amazed when I saw him actually act. After filming, I always carried my bag like a student and stayed in front of the monitor until the end. I wondered when I would get another opportunity like this. Senior Song Kang-ho was shining and beautiful on set. Yes.

Tiffany Young and Song Kang-ho share a common relationship. He expressed his fanaticism by saying, "I was more nervous because we were in the same company. I always prepared thoroughly. I am such a fan that I have seen all of my senior's works. While preparing for the audition for two weeks, I watched one work a day." He then joked, "I have senior Song Kang-ho's number, but I've never contacted him. It's still very difficult. I just watched at the scene and observed diligently."

When asked what kind of compliment he received from Song Kang-ho, he said, "He said that my body's rhythm and movement were good. He complimented me by saying that it felt like I was dancing to the sound, so doing music and dancing was a great help in playing the role of Rachel. “I felt like it was done,” he said.

Tiffany Young is always the first to arrive on set. He said positively, "Then senior Song Kang-ho came early and watched all the scenes and scenes. Although I was so nervous that I couldn't breathe, I was able to act with energy."

Why is Tiffany Young so diligent? He smiled, saying, "There is something I experienced through life in the theater while preparing for 'Chicago'. If you become familiar with the props and sets, you receive energy from them as well. If you arrive early, you can also get the seat closest to the monitor."

"After Girls' Generation's 10th debut anniversary, I went to the United States to study. I wanted to live the life of a leading artist, not something someone told me to do. I wanted to pour my passion into the stories I chose. Works called 'Uncle Samsik' and 'Rachel'. The character of Iran was entirely my own choice, and it was a good opportunity in many ways, and I was happy while acting.”

Rachel Jeong's original plan was Jane Birkin. Tiffany Young said, "I tried to give off an intelligent, first lady-like feel. I did a lot of character research, but I didn't personally prepare much in the visual aspect. Since there was a separate stylist in charge, I trusted and followed what the craftsmen in each field had prepared. I only acted. “I just focused on it,” he said.

Tiffany Young also said that she received a lot of support from Girls' Generation members. He said, "The members praised me, saying that the eyes of Rachel, the 'youngest son of a chaebol family', and Rachel, the uncle of Samshik, have changed a lot. It was an honor to work with Song Joong-ki and Lee Sung-min from the first work, but in the next work, it's Song Kang-ho and Byun Yo-han. “I was surprised and the members were also amazed,” he said, drawing attention.

"I changed my name to Tiffany Young when I transitioned to becoming a singer-songwriter. I wanted to take the middle name of my real name, Hwang Mi-young. Although 'Young' (YOUNG) means young, it also has a strong meaning of an eternal spirit. Overseas Even when I was working, I wanted to maintain the identity of a K artist, so when people asked me why I had ‘Young’ in my name, I tried to explain that ‘Miyoung’ was my original name.”

Tiffany Young, whom I met in the interview, was witty, energetic, and smart. It looked like he would do well in entertainment programs as well. However, Tiffany Young honestly confessed with a smile, "I have no intention of doing entertainment. I need work to make the story interesting. I don't tend to speak well without work."

Tiffany Young boasted of her extraordinary acting will, saying, “I can play either a villain or an adulterous woman.” He emphasized, "Instead, there must be a character's own reason to cheer for the role."

“I really like movies. I’ve done music, musicals, and dramas, so all that’s left is movies. (Laughs)”

Tiffany Young, who rose to the top of the music industry with Girls' Generation, revealed that she is currently auditioning hard to get a role in her 18th year since her debut. Is Tiffany Young really a passionate and bright artist?

“When I was in my 20s, I think I thought negatively about 20 hours a day for about 20 hours a day. Now that I’m in my 30s, I spend about 2 hours a day (laughs). I try not to do that as much as possible. I get energy by moving when I’m worried. I love action. “As much as I love acting, I have to move my body to be able to move the hearts of the viewers.”

Tiffany Young showed her motivation, saying, "I always lived with the mindset of a member of the national team while I was a member of Girls' Generation. I did my best in everything I did, to the point where I gave 1000%. From now on, I am ready to give my best at 2000%." He then expressed his affection, saying, "I feel that through Girls' Generation, I am now able to face the field with a healthy attitude and heart as an actor."

“As Tiffany, a member of Girls’ Generation who is celebrating its 17th anniversary, I want to still hear people say ‘As expected of Girls’ Generation’ this year. “If until now, we were ‘Girls’ Generation that you can trust and listen to,’ I hope that now that we are working on projects, we will become ‘Girls’ Generation that you can trust and see.’”
