Notes on K-Pop Re-Edit: Tiffany Young Revels In Being A 'Woman, Woman, Woman' After Growing Up As One of K-pop's Most Popular Girls'
One of the most important conversations I've ever had
This is the third edition of my rewrite and re-edit series, where I look at stories I previously wrote or edited. The first one featured a SHINee interview from KCON 2016, and my second was an interview with GOT7 also from that year. This time, I’m taking a new look at the original draft of the full interview I submitted, a very special, but little-read interview from 2019 with Tiffany Young of Girls’ Generation.
I wrote this for The IDKPop Snapchat channel’s Women Rising segment, and it didn’t get widely shared so I’ve always wanted to highlight it again. My edits here will be minimal, but hopefully insightful.
“I’m happy that I did, because there’s this thing that you learn all the rules to break them. For me, it was learning all the rules to create new ones.” -Tiffany Young
You can read the original published version here, via a YouTube video I’m very grateful for.
Because this is a series I launched with the intent to show some of my work process and editorial know-how, I have decided to make it only available at the moment for paid subscribers as I consider it my IP of sorts. The SHINee interview re-edit will stay available for free for all, but all future ones will be paywalled. I ask that you please keep all the content behind the paywall, as paid subscribers make Notes on K-pop possible.
If it is impossible to support Notes on K-pop at this time but you’d like access to the re-edit, please let me know and I’ll share it with you personally and ask you similarly don’t share it elsewhere.
