Tiffany's singing career started when she debuted as a member of Girls' Generation in 2007. The group gained many followers due to the succession of hits around the world. The members of Girls' Generation signed with other agencies when their SM Entertainment contract ended in 2017. == Tiffany was busy doing promotion in the US. She was the 1st Korean to win a Best Solo Breakout at the 2019 iHeart Radio Music Awards. She could not believe when she received the award. Winning motivated her to work harder. Tiffany said, "I could feel that there was a reaction and interest to my U.S. promotions when I went to the awards show. I think I was able to be the first Korean to win this award all because of K-pop. I think they're taking an interest in me as K-pop is being loved all over the world. Every time I go to a performance, interview, or awards show, they call me 'K-pop Girls' Generation's Tiffany.' It also makes me want to do better. I think it's great and feels so proud when I see juniors spreading K-pop all over the world. I'm always cheering for all of you." Tiffany shared that she keeps in touch with the rest of the members. They always talk in a group chatroom. She said that they treat each other like family. All the members are supporting one another when it comes to promotions. She jokingly said that whenever they miss each other, they post photos saying that they should eat together next time. The members are busy with their promotions so they could not plan for a group activity together. Tiffany is still hoping and waiting for the right time when they will all have a group reunion. All the members feel the same way. Tiffany was only 18 years old when she debuted and she turned 30 this year. Tiffany said, "It was a time where I worked really hard. I was able to get to where I am today because I loved my dream and passion and improved one step at a time. If I didn't have a love for my dream, I wouldn't have been able to get to where I am right now. I was also able to grow because I had my members who are my family, and I was able to do a better job." Tiffany explained that she felt something changed when she turned 30. She said that she became more mature to know what she really wants in life. She wanted people to find comfort and relate to music. She wanted everyone to use music as a way of healing. Tiffany spends her time preparing and studying her music. Tiffany wanted to become the best version of herself for her loving fans. She wanted to express genuine gratitude for the support and trust that she received from her fans.
