Hint: one of them look something like this:
There’s been quite a few rumors regarding SNSD activities/shows lately, so let’s get through them. Keep in mind that these are still unconfirmed and are rumors only.
1. [Rumor] MBC Sunday Show to launch SNSD segment in June2. [Rumor] Jessica and Tiffany might be CF models of Study Book ‘Red Pen(빨간펜)’
1. I’m not sure if this is the new MBC show featuring SNSD mentioned a bit earlier, or if this just another show that thought our girls were awesome and doing a segment on them would rake in the viewers. Either way, it looks like we may get some sort of show (or at least a part of one) featuring soshi by MBC in the near future.
2. What’s Study Book ‘Red Pen’? I can’t say for sure on this one either, but it appears to be a tutoring or academic counseling service (If anybody could clarify, please do). All I can say is JeTi! <33
And of course, the last rumor being possible promotions in Japan in the very near future. Although no plans have been officially announced, the girls have been dropping us hints about Japan here and there lately so this one appears to hold a certain degree of likelihood. Nobody’s sure whether or not the girls will be staying in Japan for a long duration or if they’ll do a hit and run sort of thing. This rumor semi-conflicts with previous rumors about the MBC show if the girls are staying in Japan for a period of time.
There’s various aspects to consider regarding this rumor that has concerned many SONEs:
- Korean market is very competitive, especially with so many girl groups in the recent years. If SNSD leaves for a while, somebody else may take the top spot after soshi has worked so hard to achieve what they’ve accomplished.
- They’ll be even further away from their families than before and we already know how much the girls miss home.
- The girls will have to re-debut again, starting from scratch in a foreign country. Their support definitely won’t be what they have in Korea and they’ll have to work hard to be successful. I personally think they’ll do just fine as they’re already topping Japan’s Korean music sales and also supported by several Japanese artists in the industry. Oh, and their infectious personalities will certainly help.
- No shows featuring our girls. This means no MuBank, MuCore, Inkigayo, WGM, Win Win, IY, FO2, or Happy Birthday. It also means no guest appearances on Star King, Star Golden Bell, Strong Heart, etc. We’ll have an empty time slot in our daily lives that we just won’t know what to do with anymore. =[
It looks like our girls will take their first step in dominating Asia soon, but the questions when and for how long will the girls be away have many people anxious about the rumor. Keep in mind though, it’s not all bad if our girls go overseas. They’ll get the chance to grow not only as artists, but also as 9 very ordinary girls. If I recall correctly, they get a bigger share of the money from album sales if they’re successful in a foreign market. There will also be lots of opportunities for them to explore and we’ll get to see them on different shows. It will, however, be a bit different than what we’re used to.
Many have compared SNSD as being the ‘next DBSK’ due to their similar rise in popularity and expectations for success in Japan. However, despite all prominence attached to the name DBSK/TXVQ, soshi is not the next anyone. They are, and always will be, the first and only Girls’ Generation.

Wish they wouldn’t be OUT~ for long.
Wish for their good health. :3
I don’t really know what to think about Japan… I mean, going abroad definitely helped DBSK grow as artists, they’re not considered just idols there and it’s good. So if SM hands it well, we’re going to be hella proud of our girls in the future. But… I’m going to miss them like hell. Even if they start appearing on Japanese TV shows, it’s not gonna be the same. Way too many things are going to be different. So… idk. If they’re planning longer promotions, I hope that this is what the girls want, not just SM.
It would be stupid to make the girls stay in japan for a long time for the reasons the writer said cuz if anything were to go wrong in japan it would be bad for sm not to metion they lose money if the girls are in less shows then they are now.

No i dont want snsd to go to japan !!
I dun want to miss all the shows~~
Whatever snsd do’s , I will continue to support ❤
oh my god NO!
when WG left for America, i had SNSD to fill in the void.
and now i love them sooooo much, i think i would die if i didn’t get to see them promote in Korea. 😦
i hope they are more popular in Japan than WG was in the US because when they came….umm nobody cared
my life will get bored like i used to have when i don’t know soshi T^T
please sme…… just let the girls stays in korea^^ pweeease~
i hope those just rumors that won’t be come true………
tell me that freaking japan thing isnt going to be true!!!
NO WAY! SME! dont leave my girls in japan!!!!! ><
i dont even care about they are going to be the next tvxq to be so high popularity in japan! the only thing i care is the girls' feelings!!! i dont want them to be sad leaving korea & their family,friends behind….
& i dont want them to be the next tvxq,suju or h.o.t…if sme get what i mean….
they are the 1st & only snsd. ❤ always.
Gosh, if they’re gonna go to Japan, I hope SM won’t leave them stranded there like DBSK. They spent more time in Japan then they did in Korea. ):
i say no to japan localisation… i dont mind them flying once in a while to promote, have fansign and concert but not to stay there. please SM dont do this T_T
alas. bad news outweighs the good news.
tapping into the jap market is indeed lucrative as it is risky. If the worst comes, then let’s just hope YUI gets to meet SNSD ❤
Please do a “hit & run” for Japan promos!!!
i want my girls to stay in Korea!! T__T
oth….if promoting in japan will open doors for them to collab with big names like M-Flo, Crystal Kay and Namie Amuro…….~~♥♥♥ that would be major awesome. I’d definitely want Tae to mentor under Crystal Kay!
oh no! i’m gonna cry~ =(
i really hope it’s going to be a hit and run kinda thing..
Let’s just wish that SNSD will do well in Japan and won’t end up like CSJH =[
Watashi-tachi wa, Shou jo Ji dai desu!
i think it’s pretty much what greeentee said, most fans are worried that the girls will loose their number 1 position in korea. at first i didn’t like the japan promotions for that reason as well, but then i figured it was a bit of selfish thinking. if anything, going overseas will help to prevent the girls from getting overexposed. plus, it may be fun to see them start all over again, kinda nostalgic ya know? but with waay much less insane ass anti sentiment -_-
At the very least, we should try not to bemoan that it’s the end of the world, cuz you know, groups and their popularity always wax and wane, and soshi is no different, so just enjoy the different experiences they’ll be in. Besides, i’m pretty sure the girls are excited as hell to expand overseas, and like it or not, as much as everyone wants to arm chair manage their favorite groups, the entertainment companies, especially SME, know a HELL of a lot more than us (well, MOST entertainment companies…you know the ones i’m talking about ^^)
zomg its pooltides. i’ve lurked your fanfics before. =D
you are definitely correct about the positives in expanding, and i think my writing had a bit more of a negative tone than what i had wanted. =/
although i’ll agree that most of the time SME knows what its doing.. i would probably disagree that it knows more than some fanbases as a whole in certain situations. sometimes an outside perspective is needed. ^^
trudat. they’re already pretty huge in Korea, and it’s good to get out of their comfort zones for once. Though I can expect comparisons with Morning Musume if this goes through. I’ve seen concerts from JE boy groups, and they’re pretty epic if you ask me. Tokyo Dome is no joke, really. DBSK’s Japan tour concert was also better in comparison to their previous ones. I would also like to think that the possibility of Japan promotions would open up the doors to international fame, and hopefully, a world tour! (SEA pls)
i don’t think we will be missing them much, maybe Korean sones would, since they’re used to seeing them on the streets or on stage. And hey, give Yoona and Hyoyeon a chance. Let them meet Takuya Kimura 😛

Hit and run plz snsd go to japan for a month do well then get your ass’s back to korea. I get VERY uneasy when kpop groups/people go to japan, reason being they don’t comeback. so all i have to say is if snsd goes to japan just promote for a short while get back to korea and do what you always have.
HOpe they better come back from Japan and not stay there!
OMG NO 😦 If ever they will have promotional activities at Japan, I hope that they won’t stay that long! 😦
if they do go overseas, we will miss them a lot but they would also have a chance to shine even more. maybe they should a hit-and-run. promote in japan but not too long because it IS true that when they’re gone, another girl group can…yeah. of course they’ll always be #1 in our hearts though <333
If SNSD gets a taste of the freedom of promoting in Japan, they might end up wanting out of SM too. It’s much less hectic over there.
It looks like Japan promotions are pretty much inevitable, considering SM is losing grip on their two biggest boy groups right now and they’re always in want of some more moolah..
Let’s just hope they do well.

“They are, and always will be, the first and only Girls’ Generation.”
so very very very true
wow i am surprised tat they are moving into the jap market so fast with 2 albums excluding all those mini album…
though i hope they can still further estab their fame here for maybe another 1 yr before they can hit into Jap market… but then it’s always gd to venture into diff direction..
Just hope SME will handle it properly and not end it up like DBSk…
I think it’s pretty worthwhile to let SNSD go and try venturing out in the Japan music market. First of all, SNSD are already topping the charts in Japan, which means they do have support there.
SM might try letting them do some sort of small scale promotions to test the waters at Japan, before deciding to jump over to Japan to do full scale promotions.
It’s pretty dangerous if they just let the girls go straight into the Japan market, and if they don’t get the results, they might also lose their Number 1 Girl Group spot in Korea too.
all I can say is, “all the best for the girls”… ^^
Et une promotion en France, c’est possible ?^^
I mean f(x) once went to France (it was at Cannes if I remember well), so why not…
La France aime SNSD !!
ohphew…I almost thought the japan was gonna release another SNSD girl group.
why go to japan? nothing really big happens there. just otakus and gravure idols.
Japan has lots to offer. The industry isn’t as hectic, and it’s also a foreign market which helps increase the popularity of SNSD in Asia overall. Because of the tie with anime/OST, it also exposes SNSD to the international crowd interested in Japanese culture but not Kpop. Japan also has amazing artists such as m-flo, angela aki, yuna ito, etc. =)
you missed out YUI 😦
she’s in etc. rule of 3.
emm…ahhhhhhhhh……..idk what to say…
As much as I luv SNSD, it’s unrealistic to try to do what DBSK did in Japan. DBSK is the greatest ever and that’s why they succeed.
you should also note that DBSK didn’t debut as the greatest ever. It was due to sound promotions, talent, blood, sweat, tears, and all that jazz, that they succeeded in the music industry. same goes to any other groups, be it male or female. So tell me, what is unrealistic? There are many other arguments that are for SNSD, and many others for DBSK as well, but what I’m saying is, Japan is not unrealistic.
You saying “DBSK is the greatest ever and that’s why they succeed.” made no sense.
OMG! The Japan thing is COOL AND ALL. But I don’t want some girl group like 2NE1, or T-ara to take the TOP SPOT like Girls Generation has now!
I don’t want it to happen to them just like what happen to WonderGirls.
Plus without their guest appearances, and MCs, and musical, I don’t think I can live! D’:
It will be epic if SNSD appear on hey!x3 music champ !
Japan is a huge market and thats where alot of money is at, i think snsd should do it, yes i know they willl leave korea, but they cannot always just stay there when they are so huge all over Asia, it would help them alot more.
although im very happy that they will be promoting at Japan but at the same time, im very sad!!!
i dont what i would do on my leisure time without watching Soshi in variety shows!!
but if promoting in Japan is going to be a very good step, what can i say??
but i hope the girls dont stay long there, i will miss them on K-variety shows….
No, please don’t go to Japan. There are more downsides. Thanks for the news (rumors).
