More fans, you say ? Don’t they already have enough ? Well, just like Justin Bieber’s song “Never Say Never”, we too agree that there is never ever enough fans for our 9 beautiful ladies….

Recently, 2 well-known personalities in the entertainment industry expressed their admiration for our 9 ladies, both on television and the Web.

First up: Korean actor Jo Insung (apparently our SunnyBunny’s ideal guy ;)).

In the recent episode of MBC’s [Infinity Challenge] – “Jo Insung Comeback Work – What Happened in Misari”, the actor, who was on the show as a guest artiste, mentioned that: “I watch ‘IC’ regularly; I also saw Gil’s message on Twitter (‘Jo Insung, are you watching?’)”, effectively confirming the fact that he is a big fan of the show.

He eventually got his revenge for the Tweet from Gil by commenting: “If I were at this place, Gil would not be here right now”, generating laughter on the show’s set.

The actor then revealed that Girls’ Generation is his favourite K-Pop girl group, causing the 2 hosts, Ha Donghoon (HaHa) and Noh Hongchul, to be blue with jealousy, since they are both big fans themselves of Yoona and Yuri respectively.

Herewith attached is the videoclip-cut detailing the aforementioned banter during that episode of “Infinity Challenge”:

Next: A blog-post by Kenshi Hamamoto ( a well-known Japanese Indie singer).

Kenshi Hamamoto stated in his June 30th 2011 entry to his blog his extreme admiration for our angelic 9 ladies. I think he says it best in his own words:

“I started to have interest (in them) since last autumn” and “After watching Kara’s ‘Mister’ PV, I found it interesting so I checked on K-pop. I was immediately attracted by SNSD when I saw them. They have great songs and PVs. Although I had no interest in idols back then, it was the first time I got into it.”

He also wrote, “Yesterday I went to the concert that I was really looking forward to. Seeing their faces from a good distance and seat, my heart pounded with excitement. All 9 of them were beautiful. Even though I’m a fan of Taeyeon and Tiffany, all of them are good because everyone has their own unique characters. I think Hyoyeon’s live performance yesterday was better than what I’ve watched on videos.”

In addition, he added, “I changed my mind the moment solo stages started. What? These are female idols. I couldn’t believe they’re from Korea. The quality was really high, each member could also perform their solo choreographies and songs well. I was speechless when great performances just kept on coming up. So this is what we called flawless. What more can we demand from an idol group. I’m starting to feel sorry for calling them idols. They are more than just a female dance and vocal group.”

Lastly, he stated, “As someone who deals with music just like them, I even felt a little worried for myself looking at how much they have practiced. I couldn’t believe that 9 girls in the early 20s can do such great things. How much time they’ve spent to produce such choreographies and songs, how much energy and health they had sacrificed for their schedules, and how much stress they’ve undergone to strive in a foreign country, the answers to these questions are beyond my imaginations”.

He also added, “I respect all 9 of them. I think they have put in many times of others’ efforts into their years of hard work. I was also motivated by this. In the future I wish to watch more of SNSD’s live performances, they are great.”

Well, with 2 more well-known personalities now joining the ranks of SONES, it certainly looks like the 9 ladies are slowly, but surely, gaining the world one fan at a time.

SNSD Daebak !!!
