On "Yoo Quiz on the Block," Taeyeon shocked viewers when she revealed she had ran away as a trainee from SM Entertainment once!
Although Taeyeon is very prominent for having one of the best vocals in the industry, her life as a trainee wasn't all sunshines and rainbows.
According to Taeyeon, she recalled how difficult it was for her to go on a diet during her time as a trainee. Although Taeyeon has a slim figure now and doesn't go on a diet or exercise, she explains that she was chubbier than everyone else when she was just a trainee.
Besides having to go on a diet, she also had to maintain her vocals, which was "hard to do," says Taeyeon.
Having to balance the pressures of being a trainee on top of dieting, Taeyeon couldn't take it much longer that she decided to leave SM Entertainment.
