Girls’ Generation’s Yuri Solo Album
After being a part of Girls’ Generation for almost 12 years, Yuri finally decided to spread her wings and establish a career as a solo artist by releasing her first solo album The First Scene: The First Mini-Album on October 4th, 2018. Even though this is her first solo album, she has actually made a great achievement; her songs even entered the Billboard charts!
Even though The First Scene is considered to be Yuri’s first solo album, she has made some collaborations for certain songs on the album. Some of her fans thought that it was quite late for her agency to make Yuri release a solo album. This was because her fans were already waiting for her solo album to be released for a long time.
Nevertheless, Yuri proved that even though it was quite late, her fans won’t be disappointed with her solo album. Of course, her solo album is such a blast!
Right before the release of The First Scene, just like many other singers, she released some teasers for her album to announce its release. In her teaser, we can see her appearance in the title song “Into You.” In one part of the music video, Yuri is wearing a rainbow-colored dress, and she is looking very beautiful in that dress, with her hairstyle fitting perfectly with the whole scene.
There’s also another teaser that shows Girls’ Generation’s Yuri in a black dress. With the sunset as the background, Yuri is looking pretty sexy! No wonder, through all of those teasers, her fans were going crazy and excited over her solo album!

How About Girls’ Generation’s Yuri First Fan Meeting?
Finally, Girls’ Generation’s Yuri has made her first fan meeting! In the past few years, she had only held fan meetings with the rest of the members of Girls’ Generation. This time, for the first time, she held her first fan meeting by herself. But, do you know that Yuri actually hesitated about holding her first meeting, in the first place?
Obviously, Yuri is a member of the immensely popular girl group Girls’ Generation and she has quite a big number of fans. But it would seem that she herself, doesn’t think so and she was, in fact, afraid of not gathering enough people to hold her solo fan meeting compared to other members of the group. Her manager told her that the fans who will probably attend her solo fan meeting might not be as many as she has been expecting.
But eventually, Yuri believed in herself and also believed that she has a lot of fans who have been waiting for her solo career to begin so she should be alright, despite what her manager had told her. Of course, her manager’s statement hit the spotlight for Yuri’s fans.
So, What Actually Happened With Her Solo Fan Meeting?
Like we said previously, the manager of Girls’ Generation’s Yuri said that she shouldn’t be doing a fan meeting yet because he thought that the number of fans who would come to the fan meeting would be too small and he was very open about this issue.
He said, “It is always necessary to prepare for the meeting. Even more so if you are meeting someone you love. You’ll also make a lot of preparations when you go see someone you love. I may not know her better than you do. But I also trust her and cheer for her, just like you do.” Her manager shared his concerns regarding the issue through a post on his Instagram account.
But still, there were a lot of her fans who protested their argument about why Yuri shouldn’t hold her solo fan meeting earlier. Other than that, Girls’ Generation’s Yuri once revealed that she was quite nervous promoting her solo album alone, without the rest of Girls’ Generation members. Not only she was feeling nervous, but she also revealed that she missed them a lot.
