Increasing concern over idols’ dangerous work conditions


With the recent injury of SNSD’s Tiffany, industry representatives have been raising voices of concern over the dangerous conditions idol singers are forced to perform in.

The majority of idols perform elaborate choreography on slippery stages while wearing clothing that distracts and gets in the way of safety measures. Female idols are especially prone to injuries, as they usually perform in 10cm ‘kill heels,’ increasing the possibility of an injury occurring.

Not only that, but their jam packed schedules and frequent dance rehearsals leave no time for rest, straining their bodies to work under high levels of fatigue.

Park Sung Jin, the director of Wellton Hospital, commented, “Injuries such as desmorrhexis are increasing amongst the youth due to intense workouts and carelessness. It’s difficult to treat damaged ligaments, and recovery takes a long time, so it’s important that injuries don’t happen at a young age.”

‘I Love You’ MR-Removed version: Tae Yeon praised for her awesome singing ability


Recently, the MR-Removed version of Tae Yeon’s ‘I Love You’ (the OST for SBS drama ‘Athena’) videos have surfaced on online entertainment forum sites.

For those who are not familiar with the term, MR means Music Recorded. So, for MR-Removed videos, basically, the music is taken out from the video and all that can be heard is the artist’s actual vocal ability. This method has been used to evaluate the vocal abilities of artists such as SNSD, IU, Beast, Sistar, Tiara and other idol groups.

From the MR-removed video of ‘I Love You’, one could only come up with a conclusion that Tae Yeon’s singing ability is near-perfect as there is only a slight 1% of voice wavering and the difference between the normal and MR-removed video (in terms of singing) could hardly be detected. Composer of ‘I Love You’, Ahn Youngmin even praised Tae Yeon for her great singing ability.

Netizens who heard the MR-Removed version gave their praises to Tae Yeon:

-”Powerful singing ability”
-”How is it possible that such voice comes from someone with a kid-like face?”
-”This is a really good song. Superb singing ability”

Check out the MR-Removed version of ‘I Love You’ and be amazed!



Meanwhile, SNSD will be attending the TBS Japan Record Awards in Japan on December 30th.

PD of the program, Asano Sumi said, “While I was looking for suitable guests for the show, I came across SNSD’s promotional video and i immediately wanted them on the show”.

SNSD commented, “We are really happy as we received lots of love from the Japanese people for our appearance on the show”.

CNBLUE’s Yong Hwa composes a song for SNSD’s Seo Hyun


CNBLUE’s Yong Hwa made a surprise reveal of a song he composed for his virtual wife, SNSD’s Seo Hyun, on this week’s episode of MBC’s “We Got Married.”

The episode focused on more footage of the couple’s vacation trip and continued where they left off last week where the couple had been enjoying dinner after a busy day.

After finishing their meal, Yong Hwa stated, “I have something I’ve been preparing for Seo Hyun. It’s going to be one of the greatest hits of the season. Honestly, it’s a song about Seo Hyun. The song’s about something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but haven’t. It’s about ‘informal speech.’”

On the spot, he revealed a bit of the song’s melody and, as if too shy to reveal the chorus, he murmured a bit of the lyrics, further increasing the curiosity of the viewers and Seo Hyun alike.

Much anticipation is being put on how the song will turn out and what message the lyrics will contain.

SONEs~~~ Hello~~~~ ^^

Finally!! I am leaving a message on our official site!! I was a little late wasn’t I ^^….

When the members were leaving messages one by one on here when we started out ‘Hoot’ promotions I thought, it must be my turn soon~

and waited a bit but because of our busy schedule!.. I was a big mess ^^;

But I like it better now that I get to leave a message to everyone during this meaningful time~~~~

First of all!! My congratulat

ions to you!! Both SNSD and SONE joined their strengths and finally! We won a huge~ award!!!! +_+

*clap clap clap clap*~~~ <3>

SONEs must have been really busy since it’s nearly the end of the year…

So thank you all for participating in polls or SMS messaging ^^

It feels like each and every one of them kept building up.. and it ended up creating such a happy moment for us!

Something like this.. requires a lot of interest and love…

SONEs… You must love us a lot don’t you????????????????????? kekekekekekekekekeke

Us SNSD also congratulated ourselves, hugged, laughed, cried^^…We were all really happy~~~

One regretful part was our Fany.. wasn’t with us together,

But she’s working really hard to get better in case the people around her get worried for her ^^

She monitors the members ve~ry o

bjectively as well ^^ Tiff-manager kekeke

Even though she wasn’t with us there, she was very noisy during our celebration~ We had a good time ^^

We’re real when we’re together as nine members kekeke

Anyway! I think it’s good to have people who are becoming more important to us and have people we can depend on~~

Both SONEs and our SNSD ^^

SNSD eye 500k sales in Japan before year ends


SNSD who had just debuted in Japan in September 2010, are expecting to hit the 500,000 copies mark in terms of albums and DVD sales in Japan.

According to Oricon, SNSD who released 2 singles and a DVD, recorded a total sales of 318,736 as of December 9th. The DVD entitled ‘Girls’ Generation Torai – Commemorative Edition – New Beginning of Girls’ Generation‘ sold 81,034 copies as of the date mentioned, while First Japanese Debut Single ‘Genie’ which was released on September 8th, recorded sales of 112,724 copies. 2nd Debut Single ‘Gee‘ which was unveiled on October 20th added 124,978 copies to the tally.

The DVD still manages to fetch sales of about 2,142 copies in the 17th week of it’s release and it was ranked 6th based on Oricon Weekly Chart released on December 6th. Based on the Singles Weekly Chart (December 6th), ‘Genie’ and ‘Gee’ sold 2201 copies (13th week) and 4155 copies (7th week) respectively.

In addition to these, the Japanese edition of ‘Hoot’ which will be released on December 22nd is expected to boost SNSD’s annual sales in Japan and thus, surpassing the 500,000 copies mark. Japanese edition of ‘Hoot’ which comes in Regular Edition, Limited Pressing Edition and First Press Limited Edition is expected to fetch better sales than singles. With that, the goal of exceeding 100,000 copies for every music release will soon be realized.

Interview with the Disk Daesang winner


After ‘The 25th Golden Disk Awards‘ ceremony, our girls were interviewed by IS (일간스포츠). Here are the contents of the interview:

Reporter: What came to your mind when SNSD was announced as the Daesang winner?

SNSD: We were still in a shock. It feels like a dream. It was very much beyond our expectation as we only wish to enjoy the moments with our fans. Winning such a grand award…we felt thrilled and scared at the same time. We will never forget the moment when ‘Golden Disk Daesang SNSD’ were announced.

Reporter: The award, expected?

SNSD: Not at all. In fact, due to our anxiety, we seemed to make a lot of mistakes while performing on stage today. Usually before we get on stage, we will put our hands together and shout ‘Right Now, SNSD‘ followed by ‘Hwaiting‘ but today, everything just seems to be very hectic and we didn’t get to do it. So, while we were sitting around the table, instead of using our hands, we put our feet together and did the slogan.

Reporter: You girls must be missing Tiffany very much. At every winning speech, you mentioned Tiffany’s name.

SNSD: On the stage, SNSD will only be complete when there are all 9 of us. Because of her knee injury, the void left by Tiffany is huge. We thought about Tiffany a lot every time we receive the awards. It’s such a pity she couldn’t be here with us today.

Reporter: After receiving the ‘Newcomers’ Award’ in 2007, there seems to be some kind of a bond between SNSD and Golden Disk Awards.

SNSD: We are really grateful for the acknowledgements. The fact that the awards were decided based on the actual album and music sales made winning these awards more meaningful. All these will not be possible without our caring fans whom we are so thankful for.

Reporter: How about things that you will always remember during your trainee days?

SNSD: To be artists, we spent 4-6 years as trainees. As we looked back, we realized that our parents were very worried about us then. After becoming a singer, the most glorious moment is when we were able to stand on the stage, the feeling is really great. We would like to thank our teacher, Mr. Lee Soo Man who made our dreams come true.

Reporter: Any words for your ahjussi (uncle) fans?

SNSD: We know they cheer for us like their own little sisters or nieces. As to not disappoint them, we will always try to give our best.

Reporter: Today, are you girls going to throw a party to celebrate the win?

SNSD: Really! Today, we never thought that we would receive the daesang. Not only us, but our family – BoA sunbae-nim, Super Junior sunbae-nims and SHINee, received many awards today so there will be a big feast. The party will be prepared by our agency, we have no idea about it. We will have to talk about it.

Reporter: What is your goal for the future?

SNSD: At this moment of glory, we have none but if there must be something that we should wish for, we truly hope that the 9 members of SNSD will always be together to the end.
