Girls’ Generation members Yuri and Hyoyeon made guest appearances on the latest episode of Amazing Saturday and as they usually do, they brought endless laughter onto the show. It was during their time on the variety program that the girls talked about Yuri’s famous on-stage mistake. The topic was brought up when Yuri began discussing how her and Hyoyeon are famous for not memorizing their lyrics.

The Girls’ Generation member further elaborated that it is not on purpose, but rather because the girl group has so many songs!

It’s because Girls’ Generation has so many songs. There’s a lot of songs so instead of lyrical delivery, we perform with excitement and energy.

It was here where SHINee‘s Key, who is a fixed cast member of the show decided to poke fun at his label mate and bring up a legendary memory from the past regarding her lyric memorization.

Key: There’s a legendary moment from the past.
Yuri: There was a legendary moment!
Key: No about you!
Yuri: About Me?
Key: Yeah it was a live performance

Upon Key’s mention of the past, the three Girls’ Generation members immediately knew what performance he was referring to and could not hold in their laughter!

The performance in question was back in Girls’ Generation’s earlier days when the group was performing their song “Honey” on Love Request. It was during their live performance that Yuri completely forgot her lyrics and instead of singing, hummed along to the melody of the song!

While Yuri completely acknowledged her adorable mistake from the past, she explained something that made the situation even funnier.

Me forgetting my lyrics isn’t the most important part. Taeyeon’s facial expression was captured because she was behind me.

She then shared with the studio that Taeyeon’s face was the most expressive she had ever seen.

Yuri concluded the story by sharing she really didn’t have any thoughts in her head at the time of the performance, which aligned perfectly with the song’s lyrics.

I really had zero thoughts in my mind.
