thanks a lot… now its Shouju JIDAi fever in JAPAN,,, ehehehehe go go go Girls,,, fighting.. hwaitaeng. heheheheh.. LOVE IT,,,, (^__^)
I LOVE THIS! The girls are getting more comfortable performing and singing in Japanese.
They look so lively and happy here.
I love their live performances of Gee.
I’m kinda worried though at taeng’s vocals. Since she has to sing high pitch alot, I’m afraid she might be straining her vocals.
Since taeng’s vocals has broader and rounder range. (check at 2:09 o the perf.)
Slowly charming their way into the hearts of the Japanese!!
Go girls, show them your talents.
Kpop rock in Japan… or shud i say SNSD totally cnquered Japan!!!! still i prefer the original language (korean)… SNSD fighting!!!
Oh no Sunny. We know you love jelly, but pudding…
Sorry, I can’t help but immediately think of WGM when I read that XD

Guys! This is the HD version of the clip! Enjoy! SOSHI FIGHTING!

Thanks for linking.
Updated on the post. 🙂
I’ve found that in their japanese tv appearances the “underrated” members are getting more coverage. Maybe this is because in Japan they don’t have so much of the preconceived notions of whose more popular and prettier, like a clean slate. Sooyoung really gets a chance to shine because of her language skills and I don’t think I’ve ever seen the camera focus on hyoyeon for such long periods of time, like during her jump in this gee performance. I love them all and like to see a bit of equality.

thats because the japanese camera crew knows how to capture a group unlike the korean ones who focus on individuals…
Thanks for the HD version of the interview :). Now if only we had some English subs to it ;).
They must have some seriously good in-ear monitors in Japan! None of the solos are even remotely out tune. And that can’t be only because of the girls’ vocal improvements, since there’s a marked difference even from the Taiwan concerts. It must be so awesome for them to actually hear themselves properly and be able to control their voices so well for once.
And also: It is SO noticable in both the Japanese Gee performances and in the Taiwan concerts how much Yoona’s vocals have improved! Her singing is so confident and crisp now!
lool it’s the gaki no tsukai chaps!!
I’m curious why the last several appearances on Japanese TV the girls have worn skinny jeans and not shorts. I wonder if SME want to try to cut down on the Japanese preoccupation of the girl’s legs and focus more on the girls actual talent? If that is the case then I commend SME. Or maybe I’m just over-analyzing again….
I think it’s definitely a strategic decision by SME/Universal to shift their attention away from the legs. They get asked about their legs in every TV appearance (except this one, shockingly) and it’s almost like they’re popular ONLY because of their legs. The girls are not comfortable with those perceptions and they truly have far more to offer than just beautiful legs.
In terms of sound, the Japanese broadcast stages definitely sound crisper than on Korean TV. I think the Japanese camera work has pros and cons. The best camera work so far was from NHK’s Music Japan. There’s still too much focus on legs, I’ve never seen a cameraman in Korean focus on Jessica from her toes up when she was saying the “My angels, and my girls” part. And the camera was zooming in and out unnecessarily in the final part of the chorus, and also focused on the girls in the wrong times and totally missed the group’s cascading dance and just focused on Hyo’s jump alone. I can’t say conclusively the camera work is better or worse than Korea’s. The stage is very pretty though, unfortunately the song was a shortened version while on MS and MJ they performed the full song.
Is it me or the girls look exceptionally gorgeous here. Princess Jess looked really cute when she forgot what to say in japanese, and counting her fingers :). The two hosts don’t want to spazz but you can tell when they were watching the VTR about the girls, they want to express all kinds of emotion but they ended up looking uncomfortable, lol! Anyways, it was a short performance, but this IS the performance I wanted to see of the girls. Really energetic, bright, with lots of aegyos…Yuri, doing that sexy pose was just really cute!
Woah ^^ they look so freaking gorgerous here ^^ Ice princess looks so warm and cute TTM ^^ Yuri is as sexy as ever and her expression was so cute ^^
I’ve been busy these days and didn’t get to watch it now it got removed. DDD;
Problem fixed. 🙂
In case you’re a late reader like me, & missed out on seeing their Gee performance before the video was deleted, here’s a working one:
Gaaah xD, I was super happy to be able to see more of Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, and Sunny! it really is rare to see them often during this live performances (unless its a fancame– and we don’t even have much of those). Yuri of course looked hot during her solo, love her!!
