On Radio Star, she was asked, "Does Seohyun still eat a lot of sweet potatoes?"

Kyuhyun answered instead and said, "I know Seohyun eats a lot.  Once we went overseas, and Seohyun got caught by customs.  We were all worried.  She even paid 300,000 KRW (approximately $280 USD) in fines.  It was all because of cherry tomatoes."

Seohyun explained, "To be honest, I packed it to eat as a snack on the airplane.  On the customs forms, you have to check that you have food, but I checked 'no' and fell asleep.  I forgot that I had tomatoes in my bag.  The security dogs smelled it, so I got caught.  I got blacklisted, so every time I go to America, they check if I have tomatoes or other food.  I think you stay on that list for a couple of years or something."
