SNSD's Sooyoung - "I'm so into the campus life"

(Seoul=Yonhap News) Lee Eunjung reporter = "I feel as free as when I went to school. Being a celebrity while going to school on campus made me happy."

In March, Sooyoung was accepted to JoongAng University for Acting. She expressed how much fun she was having on campus while promoting "Tell Me Your Wish" with SNSD in this interview.

Sooyoung said, "Although it's fun studying your favourite drama, everytime I go to school, I feel free." She also said, "I ride the subway and buses and I also go eat in the student cafeteria. People never say 'Isn't that SNSD's Sooyoung' and it made me feel more comfortable to walk around."

Tiffany said, "Sooyoung attends school regularly" and revealed, "She doesn't even sleep, but she studies for her exams."

Thanks to attending school faithfully, Sooyoung was also able to make many new friends.

The members said, "Out of our members, nobody really meets and talks on the phone with their friends so we were jealous of Sooyoung" They laughed by saying, "There have been times when we were in the car, she talked for so long on the phone with her friends that out of jealousy, we yelled at her to 'be quiet'."

So Nyuh Shi Dae's Yoona, "I'm disappointed at my acting rather than the viewers' rating of 'Cinderella Man'"

Yoona who transformed into an actress through MBC drama 'Cinderella Man' expressed her disappointment of her acting rather than the viewers' rating.

Yoona who just recently finished working with 'Cinderella Man' revealed her thoughts of her period as an actress during the interview with MyDaily. Yoona had received much love from her role as Saebyuk in the KBS daily drama 'You are My Destiny' even before 'Cinderella Man'.

Yoona stated, "The filming for 'You are My Destiny' lasted a long time, but the filming for 'Cinderella Man' seemed like it ended too quickly. It doesn't feel like I filmed and it all flew by like a dream". Unlike the usual half year filming for typical daily dramas, the filming for 'Cinderella Man' was short experience with big impact.

To the question of, "Aren't you disappointed about the rating", Yoona replied, "The only disappointment that I have is about my acting". Yoona also stated, "It was really nice filming with such wonderful oppas and unni. It's still a surprise to me that I know such people" as she revealed the importance of meeting new people through this drama.

Yoona will be showing off her appeals once again not as an actress but as a singer with the release of So Nyuh Shi Dae's 2nd mini album on the coming 29th.

'Lonely DJ' So Nyuh Shi Dae Taeyeon, "It is a bit difficult after Kangin left but..."

So Nyuh Shi Dae's Taeyeon who has been left alone on her radio show that she has been working together with Super Junior's Kangin expressed her disappointment on his leave as well as her mind set on creating a radio show with her own distinct color.

Taeyeon has been protecting the radio booth alone for over a month since Kangin stepped down from the FM4U 'Kangin Taeyeon's Chinhan Chingoo'. Taeyeon stated during her interview with MyDaily, that she will probably DJ for the radio show by herself for a while and wants to steer to program to have her distinct color.

Taeyeon expressed her sadness as she stated, "It's really lonely after Kangin stepped down. There were lots of things to laugh about when I was working with Kangin". She also revealed her difficulties when she stated, "It's very physically tiring because I have to carry on two hours worth of radio by myself".

However Taeyeon also showed an optimistic side by saying, "It's nice to be able to make it into my own style". She also stated that the program changed, "As the DJ changed, the guest that appeared on the show and the atmosphere of the show also changed" and also "The basis of the program remained the same but the style of songs that play have changed".

SNSD's Jessica - "The Park Myungsoo and MyungSica collaboration was fun"

[MyDaily = Lim Eerang reporter] Gag man Park Myungsoo had a duet collaboration with SNSD's Jessica. Jessica told us her feelings about singing with him.

Jessica did a collaboration with Park Myungsoo and MyungSica participated on MBC's 'Infinity Challenge - Olympic Duet Music Program'. MyungSica made an appearance through the song "Nengmyun (Cold Noodles)", a song by E-TRIBE that also made SNSD's 'Gee'. With their duet, they are competing with the best like Yoo Jaesuk and Yoon Mirae-TigerJK, Jung Joonha and After School, Jung Hyungdon and Epik High, Noh Hongchul and No Brain, Junjin and Lee Junghyun, Gil and Yoon Dohyun Band.

After already finishing recording, Jessica said in her MyDaily interview, "Through E-TRIBE, Park Myungsoo asked for me as a favour. It was fun." She started expressing her feelings about her experiences of doing a duet with Park Myungsoo. Because the song was not broadcasted, she couldn't say anything about the results of the music industry, but once the song was broadcasted, the sound would be resolved.

"When the 'Infinity Challenge' members did a parody of SNSD, Park Myungsoo wore my blue hat and pretended to be me", said Jessica, "I think that's the reason why he asked me to do a duet with him" she concluded.

"It was fun", she said, remembering that time of recording. "Because of me, Park Myungsoo's style of singing was very clean. Park Myungsoo went and matched with me", she said with a thankful heart. In closing, Jessica gave us more of an expectation and said, "Because of the fun lyrics and adlibs (you will like it very much)".

So Nyuh Shi Dae's title song 'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)' of their 2nd mini album was released at 10 AM on the 22nd through various music web sites. So Nyuh Shi Dae brought along the 'Gee' Syndrome during the first half of the year and their comeback was the hottest topic of discussion in the music industry of this summer.

In the middle of all this discussion, many musical personnel are surprised at the release of 'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)'. The reason is simple. So Nyuh Shi Dae has strayed from their hook style song that has been dominating the music industry for the past 2~3 years.

'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)' that will follow up on 'Gee' Syndrome has a fantastic intro that played smoothly into the bright and refreshing chorus defining it as a trendy dance song. The meaning of the song is that the girls of So Nyuh Shi Dae will become 'Goddess of Luck' to supply energy to all those who are exhausted or depressed due to their busy schedule and loss of courage and passion.

'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)' has a repeating chorus but it clearly differs from other hook style songs. So Nyuh Shi Dae straying away from the hook style with their comeback means that they are challenging the majority. The possibility that So Nyuh Shi Dae will create and introduce a new trend into the music industry is a topic of interest.

Most people thought that So Nyuh Shi Dae will be making a stable comeback rather than an adventurous one. Most expected that a they were going to show a transformation in a stable setting with promised success rather than a risky adventure.

However So Nyuh Shi Dae overturned all of these views. 'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)' does has it's basis as a trendy pop dance song, but it definitely has fresh sound that was not easy to come by in Korea. Also, just considering the fact that So Nyuh Shi Dae went against the majority of the hook style is enough to an interesting fact by itself.

It is still too early to determine level of success that So Nyuh Shi Dae faces to the listeners that are accustomed to the hook style songs. However the response on the first day of the release is nothing but positive. So Nyuh Shi Dae's title song 'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)' of their 2nd mini album was released at 10 AM on the 22nd through various music web sites. 'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)' shot up the real time charts as soon as the release and soon dominated the charts by proudly rising up to #1 spot. It is also #1 on search engines as well. It is foreseen that So Nyuh Shi Dae who possess powerful fans will no doubt dominate other girl groups on not just album sales but other aspects as well.

The attention is leaning towards the possibility of So Nyuh Shi Dae transforming the music industry from the hook style that is currently dominating the mass of the listeners.

So Nyuh Shi Dae's company SM Entertainment representative stated during the interview with Newsen on the 22nd that, "The album was prepared with the intention to introduce new and various styles of music to the listeners" and "We wanted to show the improvements of the girls after 'Gee' and the results of that quest is 'Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)'".


The ‘SM vs YG’ outrage on the internet

YG TV, which takes fans into behind the scenes and upclose and personal with the YG artistes and Yang Hyun Seok himself, started to air on 2nd July.

While music fans rejoiced with this new reality programme, one part of the netizens are angry over a part of the show which had showed Big Bang members’ response when they were watching Inkigayo and Super Junior had won Mutizen on the show.

Netizens cut out the part of the episode where Big Bang were watching 2NE1 performing on SBS Inkigayo and Super Junior were announced the winner on the show.

Netizens claimed that they heard the responses from the boys:

  • “Oh my”
  • “What the, SM”

The cut here:

The whole section of the episode starting from around 0.19:

This caused an outrage on the internet with posts titled ‘YG puts SM down’ etc with hot debate going on.

The responses by the netizens were really getting out of hands, there were the agitated SM artistes supporters writing the really mean and outragious comments and there were the VIPs who were apologising.

For me it didn’t seemed like Big Bang was trying to put Super Junior down but were merely disappointed with 2NE1 not getting an award.

The reason why I’m posting this is I hope this stupid ‘war’ between the SM and YG supporters will not start amongst the non-Korean kpoppers community.



So Nyeo Shi Dae ‘Tell Me Your Wish’ UCC video gets overwhelming response

A group in Korea called Sorea, which aims to promote and trendinise Korea’s traditional music, did a parody on So Nyeo Shi Dae’s recent hit ‘Tell Me Your Wish’. And their UCC video is circulating on the internet and had gained much interests from the netizens for such an unique parody.

They also did parodies on Big Bang, 2NE1 and Super Junior’s music.


Maybe it was the modification of archangel politician (R.I.P.), maybe it was the ambiance from the riled up crowd, or maybe it was the Gods informing the girls they meliorate mend their diversion up or there’s a strategy to blackball someone at Music Bank… Either way, there was an happening that dispatched a some to the hospital, including SHINee’s Onew. Hope he’s okay! If he comes backwards with a newborn countenance this instance >:| then I undergo this was staged.

It happened during SNSD’s encore where conception of the initiate lapse soured and it startled everyone.

[07.19.09] SNSD wins Mutizen Song Award at Inkigayo for the second consecutive week, "Taeyeon shows her cute wink of joy"

Nation's girl group, SNSD, conquered Inkigayo with their 2nd win in consecutive weeks.

SNSD won the Mutizen Song Award, which represents the No. 1 song on the 19th of July at the live broadcast of SBS Inkigayo with the title track "Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)" from their second mini-album. For the second consecutive week, SNSD has won the Mutizen Song Award following their win on the 12th of July.

Following the No.1 place at the "Music Bank" K-Charts on the 10th and with sweeping "Inkigayo" too, they showcased the "nation's girl group"-like power.

SNSD said: "We are thankful to just have the opportunity to perform onstage. We want to say thank you, especially to the fans. We love you."

On this day, SNSD shook the hearts of Korea's men with their "Hacky Sack dance" and "Beautiful legs dance", and with an attractive dance, song and performance, they caught the viewer's attentions. It was a performance where you could easily understand the reason why the SNSD syndrome has hit South Korea so hard.

Especially with improvements in the dance and stage after several performances, SNSD showed us to the fullest, why they have achieved the spot for South Korea's best girl group.

Different from the times when SNSD swept the music industry with "Gee", they're showing a more mature side now which attracts attention among the audience and viewers. SNSD is making the hearts of all the male fans flutter with the "Hacky Sack dance"/"Beautiful legs dance" performances using their smooth leg lines. The general point is that they got more mature compared to "Gee".

Taeyeon you have a solo part towards the end of the song. During the performance, are you nervous?
Taeyeon: Yes, I do get nervous. Since my solo part is sort of the climax of the song, people naturally pay more attention to that part, which means I have to sing it well. However, I don’t do something in particular to overcome my nervousness. Instead, I just sing it the way I feel it should be sang.

“We go over every moves, from moving our hands to standing in certain way.”

It must be difficult to sing and dance at the same time. Moreover, you guys are dancing in heels, how do you guys take care of your feet? (laughs)
Tiffany: It’s physically tiring. But we don’t do something in particular to take care of our feet. Well, does pedicure count? (laughs) Even though it’s tiring to dance in heels, we are used to it; heels became pretty much our companion? (laughs)

Although the dance isn’t that hard, you guys have to synchronize every move. Wasn’t that difficult?
Hyoyeon: Yes it was difficult. In fact, when we are on stage, it is very obvious if someone does something else. So we go over every move meticulously to make sure we are in sync.
Jessica: This time we paid more attention to our looks or feelings. It was easier for us to be in sync when all of us got the feel for the dance.

Hyoyeon, you have a special solo dance. While you were practicing for your solo, did you focus on certain parts? Also, did you referred to certain musicians or dancers for your solo dance?
Hyoyeon: I like this kind of dance. Honestly, the concept of the song wasn’t hard for me to handle. However, it’s sort of uncomfortable for me to move my arms freely because of my outfit. Besides that, I try my best to accentuate looks or my body lines. I want to be like Beyonce; she has the best looks and facial expressions. When it comes to strength or energy, I think Chris Brown is the best.

Hyoyeon: I want to be like Beyonce, having looks and facial expressions.
Yuri: Since my skin is dark, just consider me as a sexy person.

With sexier outfits and the dance…people say Yuri is especially sexy. Do you realize this kind of change yourself?
Yuri: Uh, I’m not sexy. Hahahah. With my new hairstyle and my dark skin color, I think I might have been portraying that kind of image. Honestly, I thought about it; since the concept of the song and the song itself is really different, I needed to show people something new. In terms of singing and facial expression, I try to do something different from ‘Gee’.

Seohyun, even though you are the maknae, you finish the song {referring to her salute at the end}. How do you feel?
Sunny: Every time I see her doing that, I feel proud of our maknae.
Seohyun: When I watched myself doing that on TV, I realized the way I held my hand up was sort of bent. So I was like, ‘Oh no what do I do…’, then I stood in front of the mirror and started experimenting, ‘Should I do it like this?’
I still think it’s awkward.

I can see that unnies really take care of you, Seohyun. When I watched your nickname is Kkukkukgyi (someone who holds everything it in) and you have plenty of other nicknames…your unnies did secret camera (korean version of punk’d) for you.
Yuri: We did secret camera for her because it was her birthday. But you know ‘Maknae on top’. (Maknae is the boss).
Sunny: Out of all of us, Seohyun is so jjang (best).

By the way, do you really not eat any fast food?
Seohyun: I don’t really like it. Well it’s not like I never eat it, but I heard if you eat fast food often, stuff accumulates in your body.

“For our very own concert, I hope all tickets are sold”

Tiffany: Because I have never seen a baby this close, it’s hard for me.
Yoona: Since I was comfortable even when cameras were rolling, I couldn’t help but be myself.

Starting with 3rd episode for , there won’t be an emcee for it. How was it?
Taeyeon: Instead of following the script, we actually enjoyed improvising, as if we were just being ourselves at dorm…very comfortable.

Tiffany, it seems like you have a hard time with a baby.
Tiffany: I actually don’t have a younger sibling. If I was the youngest member of the group, I think I can do better. But it’s just so hard for me and I don’t know what to do. Don’t get the idea that I don’t like babies, it’s just I never had a chance to be around with babies often.

Yoona you were busy with filming dramas. Lately, I have been seeing interesting side of you. It feels like you’re a boy…an elementary school kid.
Yoona:Oh really?
Sunny: You are exactly right! Hahahah.
Jessica: Usually, that’s how she is.
Hyoyeon: She is very an easy-going person.
Yoona: Since I was comfortable even when cameras were on, I couldn’t help but be

You guys have gained explosive popularity with Gee. Also, thanks to frequent appearance on variety shows, your group is well known. Is this burdensome? On the other hand, there are myriad amounts of rumors and troublesome articles about your group.
Jessica: We think it happens because that shows how people are interested in us. Actually, often times, we appreciate this kind of attention.

How do you guys deal with stress?
Jessica: I’m sure other members are thinking the same thing but I would like to go on a vacation with just SNSD. However, we haven’t gone on a vacation after our previous promotion activities. Someday, I would definitely like to go on a vacation with SNSD.

Sooyoung: Honestly, it’s ok if we don’t get 1st place.
Seohyun: It’s important for everyone to be healthy.

I’m sure people already asked this kind of a question, but do you guys have a wish?
Sooyoung: This is our wish; that is, to have our own concert…with all tickets sold out! (laughs)
Tiffany: We always had this kind of a question…that is our wish.
Sunny: I bet you, Maknae’s wish is for everyone to be not sick.
Seohyun: Yup, it’s important for everyone to be healthy.

You know how you guys have won 1st place nine times in a row with 'Gee'? Do you wish that you guys will win 1st place ten times in a row with 'Tell Me Your Wish'?
Sooyoung: Winning 1st place nine times in a row was truly a miracle for us. I guess that’s why you think that’s now our standard. It wasn’t just us; it was because staff was there to support us. I think it was really difficult for that to happen. I hope you don’t think our standard is to win nine weeks in a row. Honestly, it’s ok if we don’t get 1st place for even a week.

Really? (laughs)
Jessica: It’s more important to show people our hard work.
Tiffany: Yes, we mean it. We just love the fact that all of us can be on stage. We will always work hard!

On the other hand, other members also commented by saying, "They can sing and dance well, so that's why we like SHINee."

Tiffany continued saying "I set my cell phone alarm as SHINee's song, 'Noona You're So Pretty'. Whenever I hear this song in the morning, it automatically makes me want to say "Yes~ Goodmorning~" and helps me to start a refreshing morning" and attracted people’s attention.

Group SNSD's pride was restored as 'baby mothers'.

SNSD is carrying out its role as a lifesaver for KBS joy, the cable channel. This is because the childcare experience variety program 'SNSD's Hello Baby' is receiving high viewer ratings.

KBS joy's staff comments, "Considering that many self-created KBS joy programs weren't doing too well in terms of view ratings, SNSD is definitely a lifesaver."

Recently, KBS joy's viewer ratings averaged about 0.1%. However, 'SNSD's Hello Baby' rated at about 1%, despite its broadcasting time being tuesday nights. This is considered a great success for a cable channel.

KBS joy's most watched program was the re-run of KBS 2TV's '1 Night, 2 Days'. However, SNSD's childcare experience program is the first program to beat the ratings of '1 Night 2 Days' re-runs.

Considering MBC's 'Cheer Up' with SNSD only had viewer ratings of about 2~3%, cable channel KBS joy's 'SNSD's Hello Baby' have completely restored their pride.

Staff comments, "members of SNSD experiencing childcare and appealing their frank candidness is impacting the viewer ratings greatly". He continues, "this result was expected. We knew good viewer ratings were guranteed since the recording of the first episode. SNSD's self controlled atmosphere, witty comments, their maturity, and their honest love for the baby gave us a confident start. This show will absorb SNSD fans and many other groups of viewers."

Girls' Generation tells us their challenges, dreams and misunderstandings.

"It's SNSD's time these days isn't it?"

From 'Gee' to 'Genie' they produced a two-in-a-row homerun.
In trendy terms, SNSD is the bomb.

However, the girls' answers was of the unexpected.

"SNSD still has a long way to go. We still have much more to show you."

What more could they show us? SNSD rose above expectations. They did not just
remain as a pretty girls' singing group, but they conducted a trend in song and
fashion. Their first product was 'Gee.' The addicting song became a textbook
answer for other vocal artists, and their primary coloured skinny jeans led a new
fashion code on the streets.

SNSD yet again attempted a new transformation. Through 'Genie' they threw away
repetitive choruses and their cute skinny jeans. Instead they reintroduced
themselves through Euro dance and a refreshing marine military appeal.

"We don't want to dwell on trends. We wanted to create a new trend. That's why we
got rid of the addiction song and took off our skinny jeans. We wanted to escape
from our own trend and recreate a new one."

They want to show us more, and do more. Their satisfaction of 'SNSD' is far from

◆ Challenge - Create a trend

Through 'Gee,' 'SNSD' created a trend exceeding imaginations. 'Gee' was more
than just an addictive ear tingling song. Their vivid skinny jeans, vintage t-shirts,
vocals, dances all became the latest craze. Many parodies of 'Gee' were born and
the streets flooded with fluorescent skinny jeans.

What would the new album be like. After getting rid of the addictive style, the
market was half in doubt. This was because the entire public was into the current
trend 'Hook song' (addictive song). However, SNSD dressed up the media pop
dance style with 'electronica.' When other idol groups were hesitant to transform,
SNSD expanded their domain of style.

"The members really like to try and challenge themselves in new things. We are
always in the pursuit of something new. We have more fun challenging ourselves
than following trends. It was like that creating the 'Genie' album. We wanted to
show you a more developed and evolved SNSD. The trend was 'Hook songs' but
we ultimately avoided it." - Kim Taeyeon.

It was definitely a new trial. They threw away the 'Cute•Petite•Innocent' set. Instead
they introduced a heavy electric tune, defining themselves from other idol groups.
It was the intention of showing a higher level of maturity.

It was the same with style. They dressed themselves in thigh exposing uniform
skirts. It was the new combination of military and cosplay. They also presented
themselves with a sexy new 'Hacky sack' choreography to show off their delicate
leg lines.

The challenge was another happiness for 'SNSD.' They experienced this through
'Gee.' Who would have thought the repetitive melody would be addicting instead of
annoying? The bright skinny jeans could have been thought to be an unrefined
look, instead it swept the nation.

The nine girls of 'SNSD' said in unison that they were not afraid to construct
another trend.

"Truth be told, when we were active with 'Gee' we weren't exercising a trend. It was
just music, clothes and unstylish. But we tried it and it became a craze. It's the
same with 'Genie.' The music and style may be strange at first but we are show
you will enjoy it." - Hwang Miyoung, Choi Sooyoung, Jung Sooyeon

◆ Misunderstanding - Tell it through performance

'SNSD' is not loved by everyone. There exists those who glare at 'SNSD.' This is
evident by the growing number of rumours, gossip and criticism. It was the same
with this new album. From the Japanese album cover incident, to the swear word
incident, 'SNSD' had to endure these pains.

The album cover incident did not blow over easily even after modifying the images.
Many misunderstood people commented if this had something to do with Japanese

The nine members did not cry over this, but prepared themselves for a formal
answer to the incidents.

"We found out that from the responses that many people have a close eye on us.
We prepare ourselves to present a good performance rather than be distressed. A
performer talks to the audience through her performance." - Kim Taeyeon

Each of the members have troubles through their individual activities. The way that
the members talk on television programs also created misunderstandings of being
ill mannered and rude. Even from their young trainee days they are surrounded by
misunderstandings of being 'contained.'

What is the actual truth? "The time for jealousy is long gone."

"There is a time when we can have individual activity. Jealousy? Sure at first, but
not now. We get a lot of misunderstandings on TV shows since we talk quite
truthfully and honestly. We're just lively youths. And being 'contained?' there is
word about that since we were trained from an early age. We are just being careful
with our actions, it's not like we are like goldfish in a bowl." - Jung Sooyeon, Kwon

◆ Dreams - Overseas activity

The new album's title song is 'Genie, Tell Me Your Wish.' It has the underlying
concept that the 'Genies' of the lamp will fulfil your wish. Then what are SNSD's
real wishes? They want their new album to be a success, but on a larger scale they
want to be active internationally.

Their first wish is the new album's success. They do have a slight burden of doing
better than 'Gee.' They wish to break their record of nine week first place rating on
music charts.

"It's true we felt pressure to do much better than before. So we worked hard to
present an improved song, style and dance. We have confidence in 'Tell Me Your
Wish.' We wish the fans would respond with vigour." - Kim Hyoyeon, Seo Joohyun,
Im Yoona

If their short time goal is for album success, then their long time goal is to be
internationally active. They do envy the idol groups overseas such as 'Wonder
Girls' and 'DBSK.' But they say they are in the stage of preparing things one by

"Since the eldest son and daughter are out (Sooyoung expressed Boa and
DBSK's overseas activity in this way) we really want to be on the big stage. But I
don't think it's our time. We need to be more educated about the language and
culture first. But we believe that our bright and cheerful feel will bring responses
everywhere." - Kwon Yuri, Kim Taeyeon, Choi Sooyoung

'SNSD' dream of becoming trend leaders. When they laugh and play they are
surely just youthful girls. But when they dream of Asia and the world they are no
longer little girls. SNSD say they still have a long way to go because they have
much more to accomplish.
