Q & A::
Q: What can you tell us about 눈물이 흘러 (Love Don’t Hurt)?
A: It’s a different style then she has done before. It’s a style that she is the most comfortable with. The English version about loving someone, and telling them that love doesn’t have to hurt. The Korean version is saying that she’s hurt enough, and wants to stop this, and love shouldn’t hurt. According to Shannon the meaning behind the Korean version is the exact opposite of the meaning behind the English version.

The English version features Amber Liu. She released the Korean and English version together, because she was curious about how they would be received. The general consensus was that the Korean version sounded more young, and the English version sounded more mature.

Q: Yes or No? I feel that I am older than 25? Why?
A: Yes. She is 20 yrs. old in Korean age (19 internationally), but feels she is mentally, and physically older than 25. Physically, because of all the body pain she has from years of dancing. Mentally, because she believes that at a certain age after puberty your experiences define your maturity, and she has experienced much more than most others her age.

Q: What is your Ideal type?
A: She says she doesn’t have a ‘type’. However, she wants someone who is understanding about her being a perfectionist, and someone who is willing to talk about their emotions and how they feel in the moment when problems occur. She would prefer someone older than her, because she need someone with the same maturity level. If the person is not friendly, or outgoing it’s an immediate turnoff for her.
