Har har, what I do to get people’s attention. Don’t deny it; you were interested
Yes, as these girls get older, they WILL be the next generation of MILFS; “MILFS Generation” if you will. Is that really such a bad thing?
But seriously, I don’t know why the girls are worried about the aging process, and how old age will only bring with it a fading away of interest. If you ask me, people have the mistaken notion of contrasting youth with maturity, and how the 2 are mutually exclusive.
Not so, if you ask me.
Yes, these girls aren’t getting any younger, but have they matured? I respond with a resounding Hellyeah! I still think that their music retains a freshness and youth that is coupled with more mature musical sensibilities; otherwise, their music would just continue to remain static, with no sense of musical adventure or growth. To put it in layman’s terms, they’re the shit.
In a totally unrelated point, the responses the girls gave to this parallel universe without SNSD is pretty interesting and definitely speaks to their individual characters. Check it.
They’ve become sexy. They’ve become mature. They’ve become ladies. When So Nyuh Shi Dae’s (Taeyeon, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Tiffany, Jessica, Seohyun, Yoona, Sunny) 2nd mini album cover was released through the internet, the transformation of So Nyuh Shi Dae has heated up the online discussion boards.
It was because the refreshing and cute ‘national younger sisters’ So Nyuh Shi Dae has shown a 180 degree change in their appearance. However the So Nyuh Shi Dae that I got to meet still had their pure and youthful personality. They were ‘girls’ in everything they did, from joking with one another or laughing at a bug flying across the room.
Heated response to the online release of 2nd Mini Album
Complete transformation from the ‘national younger sisters’
“Sexy isn’t really a word that fits us. Even thought we have become a bit more mature than we have been. If ‘Gee’ was a song that was sung by a 20 year old girl, you can think of ‘Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)’ as a song that a 21 year old girl sings.”
‘Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)’ is a song that has a mystical intro and a refreshing chorus that fits So Nyuh Shi Dae’s image perfectly. There is an adult like feel in the melody, but if one listens to the lyrics ‘Tell me your wish! Tell me the small dream in your heart! Picture your perfect love in your mind, then look at me’ they can really feel as if the young girls are secretly whispering their dreams to each other.
“That’s right! The bright choreography and outfits match our concept perfectly. Putting on thick makeup and wearing high heels to act like adults doesn’t go well with So Nyuh Shi Dae. So we think that this song is perfect for our current age. It’s a song that matches girls that are moving on to the age of an adult. You will be able to feel what we’re saying when you see us singing the song. (chuckle)”
One and a half years since debut… Worried about their image as they age
Doing their best to provide a youthful and girl-like performance
The girls that have debuted for almost one and a half years now have a new problem that ‘does not really fit them’. The problem is aging. Taeyeon who was constantly playing around with the So Nyuh Shi Dae’s 1st album during the interview stated, “It is a bit sad to see us growing out of our youth”. Sooyoung and Yoona also nodded their head in agreement to this statement.
“We always say things like ‘This was the good times’ when we look at our 1st album. We really looked youthful back then. Sometimes we are worried that we might not be called the ‘national younger sisters’ as we grow up.”
So they want to really show their ‘girlishness’ through passionate performances before it’s too late. They are giving it their all for the performances that can not be done if not done now. They aren’t greedy for songs that make them seem mature. It’s because they will naturally move on to more mature songs as time passes.
“We each have different preferences in our music. However we are not interested in singing songs that we enjoy singing or listening to. Because we can’t sing our girlish songs if we don’t sing them now.”
In So Nyuh Shi Dae that includes girls that range from 18 to 21 in age, there is an unusual ‘mother inlaw’. And that is none other than the maknae, Seohyun. She cares for what each ones of the unnies eat, how they exercise as well as what they wear, she is always caring for their health. When all the other members pointed to Seohyun as ‘So Nyuh Shi Dae’s teacher’, Seohyun shook her head and blushed.
“Tiffany really likes coffee but she is always telling her to stop drinking coffee because it is unhealthy for her. When she sees other members eating junk food, she stares with a worried expression and tells them to stop eating them. Saying that we will die at an early age if we eat things like that. She is the ‘teacher of So Nyuh Shi Dae’. (chuckle)”

▶ What would everyone be if So Nyuh Shi Dae weren’t singers?
Taeyeon: An announcer. I always had a dream of becoming an announcer. I’m always jealous of the MBC announcers that I see while I DJ.

Hyoyeon: A fashion designer. I’m interested in sketching in pen, enough to go around collecting different types of pens.
