The lovable oldest unnie Victoria of f(x), who has made their comeback with their second album title track "First Wisdom Tooth (Rum Pum Pum Pum)." She entrusted her body to cozy knits instead of intense electronic beats.

 

"I normally enjoy wearing boxy knits. They give me a cozy and comfortable feeling. So rather than layering several of them together, I prefer to slip on just one that's really thick."

 

"Because the ocean was right next to my hometown of Qingdao, there were no rivers. So when I first came to Korea, I found the Han River and the several bridges to be the most fascinating. After that, the taxis you could pay for with cards."

 

"What I liked best about doing We Got Married was being able to use filming as an excuse to go sightseeing in various places in Seoul. And with handsome Nichkhun-shi! Both of our Korean pronunciations were awkward, but as we went on our dates our Korean really improved a lot."

 

"I'm planning to go visit my home in Qingdao during the Chuseok holiday. If I were to have an extended vacation, I want to go visit London. And shop for Acne Mouton jumpers too."

 

THE FIRST TIME...

 

The "first" becomes a special and important memory to everyone. As expected, it is the same for f(x)'s Victoria, who has just finished up short but intense promotional activities for their second album title track "First Wisdom Tooth (Rum Pum Pum Pum)." The "first" moments this lovable woman can't forget!

 

First love

My first love was a friend from dance school who was in the same class as me. That friend confessed first, but to be honest I secretly had a crush on him for five years. We've remained good friends even now and occasionally contact each other. If I were to express the memory of my first love through taste, then I think I'll say that it was very sweet and slightly sour. Of course, there was also a taste of bitterness. It remains as a precious memory all the more because I really liked him innocently. As I become older year by year, I feel that love is becoming more and more complicated

 

First impression

Among the members the first person I met is Sulli, who was my roommate. She laughed brightly as she welcomed me, but at that time I barely knew how to speak Korean so I just laughed awkwardly. Krystal resembles Girls' Generation's Yoona sunbae a lot so for a while I got them confused. Luna was really kind, and Amber was like a mischievous little brother. Because I was the oldest among the trainees I worried about not fitting in well with the other trainees, but I was very grateful because they all treated me politely.

 

First debut stage

To be precise it was on September 5th, 2009. I still remember it clearly because I was literally in a state of mental shock. The intro choreography for "LA chA TA" was suddenly modified at dawn. You don't know how nervous I was while on stage in case I made a mistake with the choreography. Additionally, my parents who came from China in order to watch my debut stage were sitting in the very front. It would have been nice if I could have enjoyed the performance a little more, there's a lot of regret left.

 

First acting

Although I'm promoting as part of f(x) now, originally I came to Korea with the dream of becoming an actress. My first project was the Chinese drama When Love Walked In, which was filmed last year. It was about three cool men looking for the lost granddaughter of a rich family. Should I say it's like the Chinese version of My Princess? This is a secret, but there were several NGs due to my pronunciation being awkward, maybe because I was speaking Chinese for the first time in a while. (laughter) If the opportunity arises, I want to do a youth drama like School with similar aged friends. I like candy characters who stand out like Geum Jandi from Boys Over Flowers too.

Thanks for translating the whole interview!

 

I'm really surprised to learn that the intro choreography for f(x)'s debut stage was changed at dawn... wow. It was such a strong performance and they pulled it off with so little time. Looking forward to more of Victoria's acting in the future~

Wow, 0wonhee, thank you so much for translating this interview! This is seriously interesting to know :o


As I become older year by year, I feel that love is becoming more and more complicated


I can't agree more. It seems like she has lots of experience to be able to say something like this. I dearly wish that none of them hurt her.

Among the members the first person I met is Sulli, who was my roommate. She laughed brightly as she welcomed me, but at that time I barely knew how to speak Korean so I just laughed awkwardly.


idkwhy but I can sooo imagine this situation. It must have been really cute despite all the awkwardness ><

Because I was the oldest among the trainees I worried about not fitting in well with the other trainees, but I was very grateful because they all treated me politely.

I never really considered her age to be something that was "different" ever since her trainee days... It's amazing when you consider how much she sacrificed to be a part of this group.

The intro choreography for "LA chA TA" was suddenly modified at dawn. You don't know how nervous I was while on stage in case I made a mistake with the choreography.

Whaaaa---??? But it looked so well rehearsed! I wonder why it was suddenly changed at dawn o_o for rookies, too!

Additionally, my parents who came from China in order to watch my debut stage were sitting in the very front. It would have been nice if I could have enjoyed the performance a little more, there's a lot of regret left.


It's so touching that her parents came all the way from Qingdao. I still think it was a wonderful performance. Great job, Victoria <3

I came to Korea with the dream of becoming an actress.


This I didn't know o_o I always assumed she has always wanted to be a dancer since she has danced ever since she was little. I didn't know she wanted to act that bad. I genuinely hope that she will get another acting job soon. Go Go Go!

Once again, thank you so much 0wonhee! You're the best n__n

Thanks so much for the translations!!

Victoria is such a sweet and down to earth woman :)

 

And yeah, I agree with the others. 

The LaChaTa performance seemed like it was like that from the beginning.

It came out really really really well!!

This further shows how they truly deserve the title of "Asia's Top Pop Dance Group". 

f(x) Hwaiting!! :D

WGM was her way of sight-seeing! LOL Victoria

 

I read something about Vic being intended for acting when she joined SM but, it's nice to get a confirmation. I wish SM will allow her to pursue it since the other members are booking roles.
