Best Rookie Award Announcement + Acceptance Speech
You seem to have good team-work. What do the other members mean to you?
JISOO: We’ve been together and relied on each other for such a long time, so we just can’t live without the others. Every one of our team is so important. I wanna be with them for my entire life.
JENNIE: We’ve spent more time together than with our own families, so we’re like real sisters in our everyday lives. I feel as if we’re close friends who became one team, rather than we’re bound as a team by somebody else.
LISA: Every one of our team has different strengths, so we talk about good things about each other.
ROSÉ: As the four of us are all different, we make up for the other’s weaknesses, while trusting and recognizing each other as well.
