Okay, I just had a huge meal (raisin bran cereal w/ 2% milk, banana, bagel with 1/3 fat vegetable cream cheese WITH pasteurized cheddar cheese. Mmm dairy.) so I’m comin down with a bit of the >>itis<< so… I’m just gonna copy and paste from Soshified. But I’m never too lazy for commentary 😀 Gotta add some of my flava just so I don’t feel like I’m completely lazy.jenyhands

First Interview:

It is currently the peak of SNSD. The first half of the year was dominated by the hit song ‘Gee’ and now ‘Tell Me Your Wish’ is becoming a hit and they’re hitting ‘consecutive home runs’

If ‘Gee’ had ‘Gee Gee Gee Gee~’ repeating endlessly in an addictive manner and was a hook song, then ‘Tell Me Your Wish’ is a euro-pop-like and trendy dance song with many elements, slightly different from a hook song. When the song was released, musicians said, “Compared to ‘Gee’, it lacks the ability to capture the public”, but it is a mere comment. Like ‘Gee’, after getting released, it became number 1 on various online&offline charts, showing the power of the 9 girls strongly.

Matching the powerful beat of the song, the performance outfits are military look jackets and hot pants, showing off a tough and sexy charm. In ‘Gee’, there were color skinny jeans, cautiously showing off the curves of the girls and this time, SNSD will wear refreshing outfits to match with the summer and with powerful stage performances, they will cause the hearts of male fans to flutter.

Then what are the wishes of the 9 girls that say, ‘I’m wanting to answer your wishes, Your goddess of fortune’ and ‘Tell Me Your Wish~’? Through this interview, we found out what their wishes were.


I want to have a SNSD concert. We haven’t had a SNSD concert yet. We want to have a stage just for us. All the fans will come to the concert just to see SNSD. Also, how content would we be if all of the staff worked only for us? To achieve that, a lot of hard work and preparation would be required, right? I want to achieve this dream within 2 years.

If you’ve been reading my past news-related posts, then you’ll notice that the girls have been mentioning concerts wherever they go. I think they’re telling us something. Then again, it seems to me that SM Ent never lets their girls do solo concerts in Korea. BoA, CSJH, Jang Ri In, SES, SNSD, Isak n JiYeon… Oh, but don’t let me crush your spirits ^^; just keep praying.


I want to master an instrument. Particularly the guitar. In the Japanese movie, ‘A Song To The Sun’, the sight of the lead female character, Yui, playing the guitar was very pretty. I also liked Yui’s song. When we do a concert, I want to show myself playing the guitar and singing. One more thing. I want to go on a cool vacation with all of my members

Oh snap! She watched Yui’s movie!


My wish is to not waste any time and live each day to the fullest. When we have a lot of schedules and I’m tired, I feel myself getting lazier. I don’t want to become a lazy person.

I seriously can’t believe anything she says here… Live life to the fullest doesn’t sound like Seobaby at all. Her getting lazy? But she’s so hard working!


If I were to move just one finger, I wish everything I wish for would come true. My most important wish right now? I want to lie down on a bed and sleep restfully. After schedules and practices are done and I return home, I can only sleep for 4 hours. I lack sleep.

I really…….. don’t know what to say about this. I feel like she’s telling me something that I must connect with my brain/theories. What’s up with mentioning the finger and talking about being in bed? Being tired and lacking sleep? D: Just tell Tiff “Not tonight, honey”.


I’m slightly ‘bad with directions’. I’m ‘direction-blind’. It’s been about 2 years since we’ve moved into Apkujeongdong and I still don’t know anything except the road to the house and the company. It’s uncomfortable. I wish a navigation appeared in my head. But thankfully, I’m not the only one bad with directions. Taeyeon’s also bad with directions like me. Hahaha.

Me too! I think it’s a problem when friends and family spoil you…


I want a time machine. If I had a time machine, I could go to any time period I wanted. The time period I really want to go to is back when I was in 5th grade. There’s someone I want to meet back then. Who it is, is a secret.

…For some reason, the only person I can think of is her mom. Well, Jessica too, but I won’t say it because it’d just take forever and a day to explain.


I want to share a stage with Chris Brown. His performance on stage is so cool. I want to nurture my skills to be like Chris Brown and do a dance performance with him on stage.

GASP! Hyoyeon-ah! Please >>perform this<<! Even if you don’t perform it like that, PLEASE at least show your >>R&B dance skills<< again. PLEASE. Hmm or maybe a nice little hip hop dance from >>wall to wall.<< I just wanna see you krump ittttt. OH~ and if Bow Wow comes, PLEASE dance to >>this song<<….Can I choreograph please? Damn, this brings back my dancing days. “Only thing that keeps me up, when I’m feelin’ down. I don’t know ’bout you, but I gotta keep mines around. Cus I done look, I done search and it’s hard to find, another shorty like mine. Baby yes I’m~ addicted to how we kick it.” *sings*


I wish I didn’t have morning sleep. I don’t have much night sleep and it’s hard for me to wake up in the mornings. If I wake up early in the mornings, I often doze off.

Surriously. Just take some of Yuri’s stash, Yoona.


There’s a 2 year difference between my oppa and I, who is currently in the army, and I wish he’d finish his duty safely and be discharged from the army. Oppa is like a friend and a parent to me, existing as support. Currently, he’s serving in the air force and has 1 year left. I hope he’d get discharged quickly, get a good job, and get married so I can get a nephew.

Her brother. It’s her brother. Get to the last sentence. Don’t panic fanboys.

Second Interview:

On the day when I met SNSD, first member who caught my eyes was Sooyoung. With Sooyoung’s sudden hairstyle change from having a long hair to short hair, Sooyoung’s new hairstyle accentuated her height; her eye-make ups captures your attention. Sooyoung’s briskness may seem like she is tomboyish. However, as soon as the interview began, Sooyoung, with her sharp character, actively participated the interview session. Tiffany would be sad if she was the second best for being bright and active. From the moment I met her, no matter what kind of questions I asked her, she kept smiling brightly. I can’t imagine how much she practiced for her to lose her voice, but this didn’t stop her from throwing out some jokes to enlighten the mood, portraying her outstanding optimism.

Although ice princess Jessica is composed, she is actually an active member. She is serious and clever, but I was surprised how beautiful her laughter was when I mentioned “Naengmyun” (Song by Myungcadrive [Park Myungsoo + Jessica sang for infinity challenge]). Because of this kind of spontaneous dramatic moment, I am pretty sure that she receives lots of attention. Hyoyeon’s charm is explosive on stage, but when you see her in person, she is calm and quiet. It was difficult to hide the fact that she is a dancer because she utilized body language first when she was explaining things.

Man, I just love it when I’m right about my KPSD positions and I don’t even have a >>crystal ball!<< I don’t even have to say anything because Jessica and TaeYeon already do it for me.

Although Taeyeon is the leader of the group, I can sense that she tries to avoid interview questions unless she thinks that it’s necessary for her to step in. Instead of answering interview questions, she was holding a portable mini fan for Sooyoung’s neck and she was fixing Tiffany’s skewed tie; she was taking care of other members like a mom. On the other hand, Sunny was dangling her feet back and forth, while sitting on a high chair, like a kid; she was so cute. When I asked Sunny some questions, her answers really impressed me. Asked where Heechul’s shoes was, Sunny answered, “Are you talking about Soonkyu’s shoes? Well I wore it since Heechul oppa asked me to…”

It seemed like most of the other quiet members were concentrating on something. Yoona was laughing hard at other member’s answer, but she suddenly became shy when I asked her some questions. Instead of answering my question, she was busy playing around with the portable mini fan. Yuri was humming, ‘Tell Me Your Wish’, as she watched their own performance on the camcorder. Finally, Seohyun was listening attentively to her unnies’ response to my interview questions on the other end, while she enjoyed fanning herself with a chick-shaped fan. Throughout the interview, Seohyun was elegant. During the break, she started chewing something. When I approached her, she was holding a handful of Kangnaengyi (Korean popcorn). She said, “We eat this often because we like it”. She resembled a bunny when she smiled. Then I joked, “Hahaha, Maknaengyi is eating Kannaengyi” (pun). If someone were to ask me what my wish is, I would wish for becoming a lovely girl like them. When they are not on stage, it feels like SNSD is in my reach, yet they are not; SNSD’s existence is truly dazzling.

YoonYul….they’re so weird<3
