K-Pop: Girls’ Generation (소녀시대)

Sunday, August 5, 2012

In celebration of one of my favorite K-Pop group’s five-year anniversary, I decided that the first K-Pop group I would introduce is Girls’ Generation (소녀시대) aka SNSD (the abbreviation of their Korean name). Any K-Pop fan will know who they are and may or may not be a fan. But for those who do not know who they are here is a quick and simple introduction to the leaders of K-Pop.
SNSD debuted on August 5, 2007 with the song “Into the New World.” They are a group of nine girls whose names are: Taeyeon (태연), Tiffany (티파니), Hyoyeon (효연), Seohyun (서현), Sunny (써니), Jessica (제시카), Sooyoung (수영), Yuri (유리), and Yoona (윤아). Over the last five years they grew to become one of Korea’s top K-Pop group becoming the leaders of the Hallyu (한류) wave.
They found huge success in 2009 with their hit single “Gee.” Since then the popularity of SNSD has only continued to grow one album after the other. Their popularity also expanded overseas and after dominating the music scene in Korea they officially began their activities in Japan in 2011. They released their Japanese album that was met with great success proving they truly are the leaders of K-Pop. They have also released their single “The Boys” in English for the US market in January 2012. SNSD’s most recent activities were their unit promotion “TaeTiSeo” and release of their newest Japanese single “Paparazzi.” 
I definitely recommend you listen to their music and for more information on SNSD, feel free to use Google or check out soshified and snsdkorean (because that is what the internet is for lol ^.~) 



Ps. Some songs i recommend include: Gee, Twinkle, Love Sick, Sunflower, Be Happy, Tell Me Your Wish, My Best Friend, Run Devil Run (or just listen to all their songs)
