I had some business to take care of earlier *cough*4th of July get-together*cough* so I couldn’t make this earlier… But after the third or fourth time seeing this…Something’s come to my attention, as well as Cindy’s, and it’s just getting silly. So while joking with her earlier, she actually encouraged me to do it so here I am.
As all of you guys know, we love all our visitors and we love those who comment even more. And I’m not just saying this because WE NEED you guys to comment on our site. No, I’m saying this because I’m someone who has written for multiple blogs before, some bigger than others, and this is a routine thing to say. But our readers and those who comment is what makes the blog not only more interactive but a hell of a lot more fun as well. We at SNSDKOREAN are quite generous in what we say and what we allow others to say on the blog. If I’m not censoring myself, why should you? If you want to look like a creepo for SNSD, I’m not gonna stop you! If you want to hate on SNSD, I might even approve your comment! (I just won’t hesitate to say something back to you ^^) Hell, I’ve done it before.
We’ve all got something to say, why should anyone stop us?
What I’m trying to say is… if you don’t like me, my style, or whatever else I do on this blog… That’s fine. I don’t care. I seriously… don’t. I’m trying to have fun and entertain those who do. SNDSKOREAN may not be the biggest SNSD fansite, but we’re growing. Every day, we’re growing. And I’ve been through this process of growth before, especially when I worked under the more popular sites, and I have learned that each site gives off a sense of style. But what makes a site flourish is through the dedication of the writers but most of all, to stand their ground.
I feel like I can say this because I’ve worked for online news blogs before. My past work ranges from Ikkimashoi, to Shenyuepop, to Allkpop, and more. I’ve been offered jobs at other places, some with pay and some with benefits. And if you know anything about these news blogs, you’d know that they have a certain style to them. So of course, it’s natural that I use the same blog style that I’m used to, one that I’ve grown familiar with.
Mind you, I was just a kid when I worked at these places. I’m only a high school kid now, so honestly, these places are all I know. Well, okay, I lie. They’re not. But from what I do know, working with a team of people similar to me and with a boss similar to me, the style of blogging that I do is…well normal. At least it is to me.
So yes, I do sound like Allkpop (whatever that’s supposed to mean anyway). Yes, I know I come off as perverse. And? Have you BEEN to other sites before? Do you SEE what they say about other celebrities? If you don’t care about other celebrities, then do you see what they say about SNSD? All I know is, if I were to pick from what I’d be less disgusted by: reading how the author wants to do inappropriate things to nine girls OR reading how the author sees a situation and tries to make it humorous and entertaining… Well, I’d go for the latter, wouldn’t you? What I’m doing is participating in what people call “fanservice” anyway (well…’cept for JeNy of course.) and this is a BLOG/FANSITE dedicated to SNSD, written by FANS.
Another thing I want to say is… Kpop isn’t always interesting. In fact, if you took away all of the news, videos, and pictures I post… that’s all you’d have. ALL you’d have. And I don’t know about you, but I feel pretty much worthless if all I did for a site was gather up things here and there and post it. I’d like to at least make myself useful and DO something with what I’m given. So if that means that I have to make an ass out of myself, so be it.
Honestly, I feel the same way as the girls from SEOULBEATS do about the blog.
If you really must ignore me, that’s fine. I see in the amount of views my posts gets or even the amount of comments that I get… that I’m not doing too bad. I know there are more lovers than haters, and I appreciate that. But the reason for me writing all this is for you to know that I AM AWARE of what people think and I AM AWARE of what I’m doing may not be in some people’s liking. It’s not gonna stop me and it shouldn’t stop you from continuing to come to this site to read the other authors’ posts.
Because seriously, where else are you gonna find a blog as awesomeas as this one, dedicated to SNSD? ^^
Would you look at that? SLAVEEee just telling us how it is. I will definitely pick up what this blog is putting down.
As for the picture, I have an idea but I could be way offs.
urm…i don’t understand the sudden outburts…..did i miss something?? but i come here everyday..so i don’t think i missed anything…or did i??
You were at Ikkimashoi? Wow I think I actually remember that.
Anyways, I’m convinced. Will comment and check in more often. 😀
I don’t know about you guys, but I think it’s fair to say that Maria puts the most time and thought into her posts. Not only does she do it with a creative flair that I have yet to see anybody top, but also with the utmost BEST intentions for the girls and the blog. To think that she is trying to offend anybody is utterly ridiculous.
If readers can’t understand that, then I suggest 1 of 2 measures:
1. Grow a pair, and while you’re at it, a sense of humor
2. G_ _O (As Maria so eloquently put it, please read between the lines)
Maria, if it’s any consolation, your posts and comments ALWAYS brighten up or add to my day and fail to dissapoint. It’s so awesome to work with you in contributing to the growth of this humble blog. Keep up the great work!
“Because seriously, where else are you gonna find a blog as awesome as this one, dedicated to SNSD? ^^”
So agreed…have always been around this blog for sometime because it’s…nicest
i’m new here, but i find your blog interesting and informative. not like the others. it’s more nicer than i think!
“just keep up the good work!” GB! 0_@
I visit your blog everyday,every other 10 minutes but I have a short attention span so I don’t comment on the entries
I support you!!!
this site the second thing i check everyday right after soshified for pms (does this make me sound like i have no life…..yup yup it does!! *hide*)
always love the post by everyone here!!!
keep up the good work, and BE FREE!!!
Just keep things going the way they are now, guys 🙂 I like the family-like atmosphere that you guys create, it just down right fun and comfortable in here.
And of course, Maria/Slave, you are an important part of this place, you and your JeNy craze xD…
keep it going =) we love you!

you’ll have the support of a JeNy shipper ‘ere (:
damn, considering that you’re much younger than me, you have done quite a lot of writing out there!
but i agree with Niki (2nd comment), did something happen that prompted this post?
yeaa..what happened? i also come here everyday and did i miss out on something too? =/
thanks for what you do!
PD: SNSD HWAITHING!!!::^^
I like the blog, don’t really understand some of your little fan stories, but I don’t mind. The cpu drain of all those gifs really slows down the computer for about 20 seconds.
I mainly hit the blog to see the latest info on GG. I like how sometimes you pick up videos or news faster than akp or sometimes those other sites don’t bother reporting at all.
Keep up the work.
and fanservice is what drives this whole idol thing so….moarrr plz.
you totally don’t come off as perverse.
but then that’s probably because I’m more perverted.
lol. you are totally right Maria. this blog is awesome because of it’s style and having many different authors to contribute. i love how each post has a bit of a different style but you all mix it in sometimes. and i love your “fan service” as well. ^_^
Maria, you knows I love your theories ❤
The pic… I'm not sure about why you chose it, but I see all the right PAIRINGS!
Haha I remember that our top OTPs is exactly the same — TaeSun – HyoHyun – YoonSooRi – JeNy –and there’s even YoonSic for me too! :]
i forgot how but i have bumped into this website by chance and i havent comment at all (sorry ^^).
just wanna drop by and say that your post about JeNy always cracks me up and you have a great sense of humour, so stay strong and don’t give up.
Can i ask, which member of SNSD did plastic surgery?
Err… well, there are rumors that Sunny got plastic surgery and Yuri might have gotten double eyelid surgery. But that’s about it… rumors.
thats it? awesome!! i feared it was more, but hearing only 2 rumors is ^_^
Although i do not comment a lot i must say as others here that i really style of the entries in this blog.
Plus i’m always in favor of fangirling and humouristic posts .
Maria, you’re like one of my fave blog writers. ❤
You know what, I visit this blog more often now because of you.
Keep up the good job!
All those JeNy theories so fun to read! 🙂
continue to support the girls!!
i think i don’t mind pervertedness if i know it comes from a girl– call me sexist, call me feminist but i get kinda bothered when guys talk about “all the things they’d do” to our girls… it just reminds me of creepy ahjussi fans and blegh 😛
anyways i am SO glad i came across this blog. i used to follow soshistalker but that things been shut down for so long.
i love lovelove this blog. and mostly cause of you maria XD
and hey, you’ve got quite a few comments on this post, no?
btw, I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU CHOSE THAT PIC. please tell??? please???!!! ^^
at first i like this place for it required none registration.
then there is this dorky reliable news+entertainment with nice creativity posted.
snsdkorea + slave are berry-berry amajing .
i’m very thanksfull
this site is 9 outoff 9
yeah, maria i want to thank you firstly for this amazing website. eventhough its not No.1 most visited or most popular snsd website , i think it does it job very well, easy to keep up and very “fan friendly”
and as for your posts i think they are great and i am sure there are a lot out there who appreciate your efforts as well. yeah. some dont really leave comments probably because , well thats their personality i guess.
yeah thanks a lot and keep it up! 🙂
Yes, I’ve never been more happy with this release 🙂
To all those asking WHAT prompted this: just know it wasn’t a single person, there’s been multiple comments over time, some nice/ some bitter, where they stated that this blog was like “allkpop”, too perverted, tainting our girls image, etc. I, at first, could stand the comments because it didn’t seem like a majority of people but then the number of these comments started growing and I told maria, “hey release some statement, tell em to shut up”. And now, if anyone leaves ANYMORE of those comments, ping em back to this nice post. 🙂
First off, like Maria had stated, we do enjoy the comments. Hell we love em. We got commenters who we love seeing writing from everday, y’all are more entertaining than my ass will ever be. So thank you for that.
To be honest, when this style of writing first emerged from Maria, I was worried about how the response would be, but seeing MOST of the response has been positive, I know that any random haters won’t affect the blog at all. Some of you are probably questioning what kind of “boss lady” lets this kind of writer loose on their site. Well hell..if I didn’t, I don’t even want to know how low my viewings are for the blog. When I was running this one man show all by myself, it was hard to ever have to site reach 1,000 views in a day. So yeah, I don’t regret my decision (sike what am i talking about?! jk :] ).
Like tAnk’s comment, this blog is just frickin awesome cause we’re all so chill and relaxed it. We all critizcize the girls, we’re honest, we’re not like the crazy fans who go “WHAT? 0MFG? U DONT LIKE DiS?!”…no joke i’ve received retarded comments like that. We got this friendly atmosphere runnin here.
Enough with my long statement, if anyone is still gonna continue hatin’, that’s fine. Be fair to the other awesome authors and read their stuff, but just remember, I ain’t firin nobody for a long time comin.
…and don’t anyone mention cindria. 🙂
ps. LOVE TO YULTI PEOPLE. GOD.
SEOULBEATS is freakin awesome. how hilarious can these girls get? seriously people, check em out for kpop news.

i thought Maria was the Lady Boss, since she’s the most frequent poster (not hinting any biased views here). but it makes sense that you are, since the site is named after your username. oh well. now that everything’s clarified, i hope to see more posts by other authors as well! less pressure on maria i guess?
i think we all try to contribute as often. im more of the news lady lol.
ok! thanks to snsdkorean for the clear up! i thought i missed something major till i visited the “questions? comments? request?” section. i see your point!
well i’m not much of a Jeny nor Yulsic fan that’s why i don’t comment much. i’m got a feeling that this is turning out to be a pro-don movement! hahaha…not that i have anything against the don. My biasness are all channeled towards Taeyeon, so if she’s mentioned, i’ll be there. (all my past comments are pretty obvious.)
I do respect your(slave303) work and the effort you put into contributing and making this site more lively and enjoyable. Everyone’s got their own style in doing the things they love and if you solely conformed to other ppl demands, i bet you wouldn’t have the drive to continue as you did. So keep on doing the things you love in your own way but always remember to take a step back to review your work as a whole. Do take in other ppl’s views and comments but never lose your unique-touch and personality along the way. Because in this world, there’s only one slave303. 🙂
I apologize for the super long ramblings and thank you for reading them. I’ll now go back to lurking & spazzing bout Taeyeon.
Thanks for the love guys. SERIOUSLY. I didn’t think I’d get a response like this, especially on a post so long, talking only about myself and the blog xD But I love it. And I love you guys! Seriously! Thanks so much.
I’m sure if I were PMSing, you’d get a few tears. but Soshimmy, you were so close!
Okay, I don’t want to single anybody out and reply to only a few people so I end my thank yous here.
And yes, the Boss Lady is right. There weren’t TOO many comments, but the comments itself that were what pushed me to write this. You can’t tell a writer to stop! That’s like telling Lupe Fiasco to stop rapping! It’s just not gonna happen!
TO ALL OUR READERS: Keep reading!
TO ALL THOSE WHO TAKE THE TIME TO COMMENT: Keep doing it ^^
P.S. LONG LIVE JENY! Lol I’m just kidding. I just wanted to be an ass again so Cindy can miss me ❤
YES YES YES YES!
A Lupe Fiasco mention from someone other than me. There is a change of the winds toward positivity here on this blog
Please take your bow whenever you see fit. And I’m still stumped over the picture choice, although I must say, iacus’ theory is pretty plausible…
Don’t let other people’s negativity affect the person you are.
Without you on this site and all of your JeNy theories, I would have never love JeNy this much as I do now. And we here at SNSDKOREAN are different from other blogs. We give people the news about snsd with flavors and personalities rahter than giving people the boring news.
Haha also!! Without maria there won’t be CindRia!! Haha!
I hope u feel better maria!
sigh, late as always to the hot topics lol. I don’t frequent or comment here as often as I’d want to, but let me tell you that snsdkorean and its writers are some of the main reasons I can stay up to date and in love with SNSD! so thank you for addressing this issue, and any issues that come, but also telling it like it is. you are a creative writer and more people enjoy your sense of humor than dislike, lots lots more people. you have a talent of continually making me laugh and shocked all at the same time haha. as always, thanks everyone here for all the effort and keep up the good work. snsdkorean ftw!
I just have to say that even though i don´t comment on your blog i really like it, you make simple news funny and entertainment; seriously you guys always make me laugh so keep up the good work and hopefully i will comment more, take care.
I certainly don’t visit this site 24/7, but it’s my main source of (completely biased) SNSD news xD
I’ll attempt to comment more =] YOU GUYS DESERVE THE ATTENTIONNNNN
I see, only sunny and yuri did plastic surgery.. SNSD fighting~
well i basically stalk this site for update of the girls haha. and i didn’t really notice the pervy stuff. that is what soshified’s fanfics does to you. darn the fanfics that i read haha. but yea continue with the posts dear. it’s all good. and yeah i am too lazy to comment.
I’m from Chile, Latinamerica, a country so far away from Korea that I wanted to thank you for this blog, because thanks to this site I feel closer to this girls that always make my day (: no matter what. And that simple thing, can make me feel happier even if my life in many moments it seems to suck so bad.
I’m sorry for my shitty english, but it really means a lot to me.
Thank u again,
I’m still on vacation right now so I can’t leave bunches of comments or anything (like I would even if I was free. . . ) but I wanted to leave a comment here at least.
The writing style here is fine. This blog reads exactly like the personalities of the writers who make it, a bunch of hormone crazed sexually confused teenage girls.
But seriously you guys sound nothing like allkpop. They’re grating and annoying attention seeking dumbasses in every way and you (all of you) are genuine and funny.
The reason Slave chose that picture is because Tiffany is standing right behind Jessica and you can’t see what her left hand is doing.
OMG!! are you serious??? *stumped*
i’m late :[
but i’d like to put my two cents in.
maria’s posts are always dope & they make me giggle all the time.
she puts a lot of effort into writing them and i really respect her.
& all readers should respect her and her work.
with regards to the comments, no one is obligated, but it would be nice to see more people comment on posts.
i mean, it keeps the blog going and it motivates post-ers to write more & better.
I come here everyday to read interesting blogs. I like it here better then soshified because on soshified if i even criticize the littlest thing on the sbox i get bashed. Same thing always happens on youtube. Thank you guys for keeping it real.

I know that besides the lovely members that Maria blogs with, she talks to me sometimes about what she wants to post. I’m sitting there reading about her ideas before she posts them, and then she drags the post into our conversation, and I’m forced to painfully read.
Haha, kidding. But, if I’m ever gone for a few days, I come straight here to catch up on my SNSD news. Forget everyone else, this is all I need. Because, honestly, it is more fun to read about, and I can make weird jokes back.
So, to Maria (and the rest of the crew), I love you guys! =D
Oh, but I am sorry, sorry. Yulsic distracted me in your picture, so I don’t see Jeny. And, you seriously need to make that evidence post.
Wow, I never knew that my post, apart from others of course, would make you say a statement like that.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOOOOVE SooYoungie, er I mean—-this site and I’m not hatin’ either. Plus, I don’t think you meant to offend anyone here. (btw, soshimmy I have a pair XD )
Basically, I have the same sentiments as to what janeberryblue and iacus said. I understand that you have a certain style that you like to do here, it just so happened that some aspects of it aren’t my cup of tea. That’s all.
I prefer SNSD’s image as cute and innocent, and others here like different ones. No worries. If you got offended at some things I said then my bad.
Continue to write, and what Niki said, do take in others’ comments and opinions.
