Seohyun is a goddess! ❤
Wow!!! Thanks for the updated, really want to have the chance to join the concert!!! Please kindly consider HK!!! There are lots of SONEs here 🙂
About Mr.Taxi Korean Ver, If you listen carefully, the music is a bit different too. i dunno how to put it, but it’s a bit…softer? it’s not as loud or as energetic as the Jap ver. The sound of the synths are different too (the music’s synth is more louder than the original, you can clearly hear it throughout the song. Whereas in the Jap ver the bass sound is louder). Dunno, i guess it’s just me anyway lol..
Anyways…Thank you thank you a BIG thank you to the SK staffs for bringing us awesome updates and infos ^^
oh dear…. i really hope they dont use mr taxi as the lead song in their comeback, cos i will need a lot more listens to the song to like it. translating a song written for another language usually doesnt end up well…
@rush The audio track has been edited to silence out the background noises and fan screaming. This has led to some accusations that this is a lipsync but I doubt so. It’s two different effects altogether. Either way, the Korean version sounds nice, just needs some getting used to, but it’s very good. Still, after a month of hearing SNSD in live performances, it suddenly felt weird to hear something like this that doesn’t have the sound of spazzing SONEs lol
Seohyun so charisma, sexy, pretty and cuteeee! ❤
Mr Taxi KOR VER! finally! but i still prefer JAP VER afterall.. but still daebak!! definitely will slowly get use to it 🙂
thanks alot of the updates! i hope the girls do hav enough rest and gets recharged for tmr's concert!
JIGUEMEN, SO NYUH SHI DAE. APURODO, SO NYUH SHI DAE. YEONGWONHEE, SO NYUH SHI DAE ! ❤
they didn’t give comment about hyoyeon performance so unfair!!!!
In Japan: “Tokyo, Seoul London New York!”
In Seoul: “Seoul, Tokyo London New York!”
Is it just me, or does the Korean version of “Mr. Taxi” have less of a cinematic impact than the Japanese version? In fact, I think later versions (done in a different language) of any song pale in comparison to the original one.
*Less of a cinematic impact due to the changed lyrics.
I totally agree. The first versions always seem better.
THANKS for updating 😀
i love snsdkorean ❤
ahh i wanna go to the concert so badly
Does anyone know if the Girls sang any new songs from their Japanese album (in the original Japanese language)? In other words, apart from the new solo stages, how was the set list different since their last solo concert in February 2010. (There’s Run Devil Run, Echo, Hoot, My Best Friend…. etc.)
tbh, korean ver. of “Mr. Taxi” sounded odd. it also didn’t sound as strong nor catchy as the japanese version either. i seriously hope SM will not make this their comeback single (i’m alright w/ fillers) but no “Mr. Taxi” as a korean comeback.

thanks for the update.
all I could say is “What a great concert” so cool!
wow i love the korean ver. of mr. taxi
i am so envy them…..XD
SNSD, fighting! ^^
Mr Taxi in korean! I like japanese version better because they sounded more sharp 🙂 but neverless fan service to korean fans! That picture on the top really bugs me!!! I really love the pose and I think they got all the members in the right position but YoonA and Yuri. Yuri not so much, but I wish she swapped spots with Seohyun because next to SooYoung, Yuri didn’t look so hot…. and Yoona!! Why that weird spot?
Yoona should have been in:
a). the middle of fany and sica or
b). between yuri and sunny
c). next to taeyeon
Otherwise, it would have been the perfect pose!
SONEs fans in Korea, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, China, France, and god knows what other countries they had solo concerts in, are way way way superior than SONEs in Los Angeles. We had a gathering for SNSD a while ago, not even enough seats for 500 ppl, and more were showing up hoping SM Entertainment would understand if SNSD had solo concerts, they’d be sold out in a day. Guess I’ll go back to my hole and watch youtubes like always.
Btw, do not mention the SM Tour.. that consisted of 10 groups in which 8 of them I can care less about and not wanting to spend $180 on it.
