*freaks out in happiness*… MC YulTi is back! … (for a day) 🙂
For those who have been waiting for the “Hoot” Album Japan vers., they have finally been released today. 4 versions –‘Normal Edition’, ‘Limited Edition’ (ALBUM + DVD), ‘Limited Pressing’ (ALBUM + DVD), and ‘Deluxe First Press Limited Edition’ (ALBUM + DVD) — ranging from about $22.25-47.99, are ready to be bought in stores or shipped out.
The album consists of 11 Korean tracks (the 5 tracks from the original ‘Hoot’ mini album plus 6 bonus tracks from former SNSD’s albums –‘Hoot’, ‘Mistake’, ‘My Best Friend’, ‘Wake Up’, ‘Snowy Wish’, ‘Gee’, ‘Genie’, ‘Oh!’, ‘Run Devil Run’, “Show! Show! Show!’, ‘Be Happy’) and although you might be thinking we have already heard them and the Japan vers. might be
redunkulously overpriced, the album exclusively includes a DVD with the girls’ ‘Hoot’ music clip/mv & ‘Premium Show Case Live in Ariake Colosseum 2010.08.25’. The fact that there is an exclusive DVD has many Sones hyped up, especially Japanese Sones.

Korea Gallup confirms SNSD (Girls’ Generation) as “Singer of The Year” and two of their songs, Hoot and Oh!, also ranked as 1st and 2nd “The Most Popular Song in 2010” respectively. This is a huge feat because, as you may already know, Gallup is a professional research company which polls often referenced in the mass media as a reliable and objective measure of public opinion. That’s right, public opinion. The survey involved 3,401 random male and female citizens, aged 13 and above. SNSD ranked as #1 in almost all age group category except for the 60+ citizens.
Talk about domination, they win by a quite large margin too. This survey confirms SNSD’s popularity in general public of South Korea. No wonder that the girls now earned the name of “the Nation’s Group” (국민가수 [Gukmin Gasoo], which is more like “the Nation’s Singer”) an upgrade from their previous “the Nation’s Girl Group” title.
Here’s the statistics for the Popular Song ranking: Continue reading
