From what i know, the best support they could have is from one another; the synergy involved in the group is important as it holds them together, the next best thing is the ever-growing support from their fans. Being able to meet parents once a month is considered very lucky for these young and well-known performers. Quoting from an exclusive interview hosted by Snsdkorean with SNSD’s Taeyeon’s Mum, when being asked how often does she meets Taeyeon, she replied, “Sometimes once a month, but TaeYeon is so busy sometimes that it’s not possible. If I do, it’s 2 hours at the most, just to change the bedsheet covers or to have a small chat.” Idols in Korea definitely enjoy the benefits of being famous, but think about how much they have to sacrifice in order to reach where they are today.
