On July 22nd, Hyoyeon and her partner Kim Hyungsuk won first place on “Dancing with the Stars II”, on an episode which showed six teams performing live for the seventh time. The mission for the day was “My Story”, in which the contestants expressed their life stories in dancing.
On that day, Hyoyeon visited the SM Entertainment practice room thinking about her seven years as a trainee and expressed gratitude towards her parents for looking out for her. She thanked them by saying, “I wasn’t sure if I was a good dancer, but my father discovered my talent and suggested I become a singer.”
Furthermore, when she was asked what Girls’ Generation means to her, she replied with a big smile, “Girls’ Generation isn’t like a treasure to me, but a ‘miracle’. I’m still amazed that I’m part of Girls’ Generation.”
However, Hyoyeon also has a lot of worries because there are nine members. When she was asked what are some things that burden her by being part of Girls’ Generation, she replied, “How I can be recognized. It’s hard to have the name ‘Hyoyeon’ publicized in Girls’ Generation.”
She showed more willpower by saying, “I’m glad I can get recognized through ‘Dancing with the Stars II’. I’ll work harder.”
This episode also featured Hyoyeon’s audition clip, in which she showed powerful locking dance moves in her childhood, along with clips of senior artists talking about “Dancing Queen Hyoyeon”.
When Shinhwa’s Lee Minwoo was asked in an interview which girl group he looked upon the most, he replied, “I’m a Girls’ Generation fan, and I always had an interest in Hyoyeon because she danced so well, thinking she could be the next BoA. I’m glad she accomplished her dream.”
Super Junior’s Eunhyuk, who Hyoyeon shared her trainee days with, said, “Hyoyeon danced so well among 100 trainees and stood out the most. I also went to Hyoyeon to learn to dance.”
Unfortunately, Hyoyeon was unable to perform live on “Dancing with the Stars II” due to promotions for “PAPARAZZI” in Japan, but won first place with a pre-recorded segment which showed a combination of her powerful locking and the cha-cha-cha. The Kim Kayoung and Kim Kangsan team sadly was eliminated.
On the June 22nd’s episode of MBC’s ‘Dancing With The Stars 2′, Hyoyeon’s audition videos, as well as testimonies by her seniors will be revealed.
During the interview with the program’s production staff recently, Shinhwa’s Lee Minwoo was asked if there is a girl group that he pays most attention to and he said, “I’m a fan of Girls’ Generation and Hyoyeon particularly, as she is really good at dancing since she was young, I thought of her as the second BoA. Therefore, I’ve been paying attention to her with great interest.” He added, “It’s good to see that Hyoyeon is now living her dream.”
Besides Lee Minwoo, Super Junior’s Eunhyuk who went through his trainee days along with Hyoyeon said, “As Hyoyeon is really good at dancing since she was still a trainee, she stood out among the 100 trainees. I too, looked for Hyoyeon and learned dancing from her,” acknowledging Hyoyeon’s dancing ability.

On this day, Hyoyeon revealed, “It’s very hard to act. I squirm when I act cute and pretty.” She also added, “I was more easy-going. But after becoming part of Girls’ Generation, I didn’t think it was right to keep it that way.”
She continued with, “When I monitor our appearances, the members who do aegyo (to act cutely) on air come out the most. I tried gritting my teeth and doing it but I couldn’t because I was nervous.” She also added that, “Now I can act cool, but acting cute and pretty makes me feel nervous.”

Jessica answered, "I've fought with Hyoyeon before. I really almost got hit by her. She was sitting in the front seat and I was at the back, when she started to criticize me. So I criticized her back."
The MC then asked, "When you fight, do you say things that can't be broadcasted?" Jessica said, "Like I mentioned, criticisms," making everyone burst out in laughter.
The MC went on to ask more specifically, "Do you curse?" Jessica emphasized, "Just criticisms," making everyone laugh again.
