I repeatedly made modifications while recording each track. It’s the first time that I recorded my song these many times. I wanted my album to be perfect.
Meanwhile, Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany shared her thoughts via a phone call with Taeyeon during the broadcast :
I originally didn’t cry but I burst into tears right after I heard Taeyeon’s song. It’s because I know how much effort she put into the album. I’m so grateful to listen to her great songs
Along with the new album release, the talented singer also dropped the music video for I at noon on October 7 via her official website and SMTOWN’s official YouTube channel.
