She highlighted the disparity between acting and singing, noting that while acting lines are part of a narrative and tend to be longer, songs sung by nine members of the group often left her feeling shortchanged.

“It’s short and improbable, so I couldn’t memorize it and it didn’t work out well,” she expressed.

Yuri recounted instances where both she and fellow member Hyoyeon were reprimanded for their difficulty in remembering lyrics, citing a particularly memorable episode during a live broadcast of ‘Love Request’ where she stumbled over the lyrics, substituting her own improvised lines out of nervousness.
