Girls’ Generation’s new song, “Genie,” drew mixed reactions
after the girl group unveiled the song for the first time at Music Bank of KBS-TV Friday evening.

The members of Girls’ Generation, attired in marine uniforms,
danced, making big leg movements.

Many Internet users reacted positively to the song,
saying it was unique, charming and nice.
But some other Internet users downplayed the new song,
alleging that it was made in a hurry.

Dosirak.com 1st place
Mnet.com 1st place
Bugsmusic.com 1st place

Nate Ringtone 1st place

Girls’ Generation plans to release its new mini album
containing the flagship song and five other songs Monday.

Girls’ Generation has been shining in the local music market
since its debut in 2007 with a string of success:
“Into the World,” “Girls’ Generation,” “Kissing You,” “Baby Baby,” and “Gee.”

Its members include Yoona, Tiffany, Yuri, Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, Seohyun, Taeyeon, Jessica and Sunny.

Yeah it felt hurried to me too… I mean Etude <- come on! It sounds like a song they didn’t use for the Girls Generation Album. The dance for Genie was the FIRST time I’ve ever seen the girls out of sync… but we definitely CANNOT underestimate the power of 9! Look at all their #1 on the online charts! I have good feelings about this! And who knows, maybe there’ll be a winner in one of those 4 other songs!
