In 2017, Tiffany Young departed from SM Entertainment to pursue her career as a solo artist in America. For a seasoned professional in the Korean music industry to pack up and leave for a career in the west was a risky move. In her new documentary, Mi Young’s Diary, Chapter 1: Lips on Lips, Tiffany dives into what made her make the decision.
Tiffany admits that since the beginning of her career as a member of Girls’ Generation she always wanted to be a solo artist.
Unsurprisingly, she credits her Girls’ Generation sister for giving her the push that she needed to finally make the jump. Her members encouraged her to embark on her own so that she could tell her story and come into her own as a solo artist and as a woman.
When I spoke to my bandmates, my sisters, … they had supported me and loved me from day one and told me ‘we are so excited for you to share your full story.’ And with that support, it got me moving.

She shares a clip of her and Sooyoung on set of Tiffany’s music video, and she says that with Sooyoung’s presence she felt “whole”.
Girls’ Generation’s bond has been tried and true over the 10 years that the girls have been together as a group, and their unwavering love and support of each other is heartwarming.
According to tweets from Tiffany, this documentary is the first installment in an as-of-yet unplanned docuseries that will follow her life.
this series will be limited , each chapter will follow new chapters in my life so we can stay on this journey together. the next one may come in a year, who knows? It depends on where life takes us ❤️😊
