Tiffany of Girls’ Generation recently updated her Instagram with a heartfelt message to her fans about the #DebtToo scandal that she had to face.
Tiffany’s father was accused of scamming 35 million won in 2007, and never paying it all back. He only offered a mere 2 million out of the 35 million he borrowed, and apparently, has been living a life of crime.
Tiffany eventually released an official apology statement, clarifying that she knew her father had mismanaged his finances multiple times. She had assisted him in the beginning but eventually cut off ties nearly a decade ago.
After the dust had settled, Tiffany is back on her feet, getting ready to release brand new music to the world. But first, she uploaded a message on Instagram explaining her thoughts behind the scandal.
“Recently having to address some of the most painful personal struggles in my life about my family had made me realize how important they were into what makes me, ME.”
She recognized that although it was very difficult, the challenges made her grow as an individual. She believes it will eventually become a rewarding experience later on.
“It has let me channel ALL of myself honestly into my art while writing this upcoming EP. Its been a time to really open up some wounds & heal… to find a way to accept & grow.
There has almost never been peace when creating in my life, but the art created during that struggle has always been the most truthful & rewarding experiences. Those songs are the ones that have given me peace.”
She hopes it will be an inspiration to everyone who are also going through a dark time in their lives.
“I hope this song becomes the soundtrack to YOUR moments in need of love & light. And that no matter what you are going through its okay. Embrace hope every single second & remember that no matter how much you just wanna give up, hold on until that moment of strength shows up & you feel BORN AGAIN.”
She concluded her message by revealing that her new single ‘BORN AGAIN’ will drop on the 24th!
“Excited to announce the first single off my upcoming EP, BORN AGAIN coming to you 1.24.2019 🖤 stay tuned.”
