Certainly, in life, there are some things that are one of a kind and there’s really nothing else quite like it. We all have to agree that SoShi Bond is one of those things.
Though SoShi Bond is sometimes used when we’re talking about two or more members interacting with each other, SoShi Bond usually refers to when our girls are together as 9; the moment they’re in harmony and become one. It’s something that only our girls have and it makes them stand out from others.
We know Girls’ Generation is not just a group of 9 girls, they’re more than that. They’re more than co-workers and beyond best friends. They’re like a family. They look out for each other, they depend on each other, and more importantly, they complete each other. If you think about it, each member has her different charms, strengths, and weaknesses. When they’re together, they’re able to balance out and make up for each other’s flaws. There’s Jessica’s gentleness to make up for Yuri’s toughness, Hyoyeon’s quirkiness to make up for maknae’s inflexibility, Sooyoung’s long legs to make up for Sunny’s shortness, Yoona’s innocence to make up for Taeyeon’s byuntaeness, Tiffany’s wildness to make up for Jessica’s calmness, and vice versa.
When we talk about the SoShi Bond they have, nothing is on par with its strength. Its strength is beyond imagination. It’s stronger than any chemical or ionic bond; it’s unbreakable. Many of us see other groups out there and we see them lose a member, gain a member, or even break up, but our girls are an exception. Through thick and thin, our girls have stuck together and persevered for almost 4 years now. Whatever they encounter, whether it is difficulties or joy, they have overcome and shared it together. Yoona once said, “Happiness is doubled when you share them together and sadness is halved when you share them together.” For Girls’ Generation, happiness is always nonupled and sadness is divided into nine-folds. It’s a beautiful fact we can’t deny.
Additionally, nothing is quite like SoShi Bond’s impact. It’s the reason behind our girls’ success today. If there’s no teamwork or chemistry in a group, you’re probably bound to fail, but our girls have both good chemistry and teamwork entailed in their bond. With their talented and dedicated team, they’re able to work together to deliver results and we have witness them ourselves–setting a record with 9 consecutive wins on Music Bank, being the first-ever Korean girl group to top the Oricon Chart on the day of original album release, grabbing the top of the Oricon Weekly Album Chart with a total of 232,000 copies sold in its first week of release, being the first-ever Korean girl group to be certified “Double Platinium” with 500,000 copies of their 1st Japanese album sold, etc.
Sooyoung pointed out before that only together as 9 was she able to come this far in her career and accomplish so much; “I did have some hard times back then [in Japan]. When I was there, I took the underground trains. If I wanted to be on a TV show, I had to go in advance to meet the producers and audition for them. Now, our schedule just fills up by itself. When we arrive at the airport, there are cars waiting for us. So when I went [to Japan] this time, I felt humbled. What I couldn’t do back then has become possible because I’m together with these eight.”
We can also say that SoShi Bond is the reason why our girls have fans of an exceptional multitude today as well. Many have been drawn to Girls’ Generation solely because of their bond. Every time we see SoShi Bond, we can’t help but find it admirable, right? It’s beautiful. It warms our hearts. It elicits our emotions. It makes our day. And we like this about our girls.
It’s something that keeps our girls together and is both precious to SONES and them.
“…If there’s one thing that won’t change, it’s the fact that from the beginning to the end SNSD was “one” with 9 members” – SNSD
“I don’t think SNSD as a group will ever be broken apart. Even if after many years have gone by. Even after we get married.” – Taeyeon
“I wish SNSD’s way down can be more beautiful than anyone else’s and that we will enjoy what we have right now. I wish we would all do things with a positive mind.” – Jessica
“For me, each of SNSD members is like my own body. If one gets hurts or hears bad things from someone else, it hurts me and pains me even more. And you know, it’s impossible for only good things to happen to someone, so there will always be difficult and hurtful times; but during these times, I’m thankful that we’re each other’s supports and each other’s strength. I hope in the future, we’ll continue to lean on each other and be strong for each other. Also, when we need encouragement, we’ll continue to look for each other too.” – Sunny
“In a family, we encounter happiness but also sadness, or good things but also bad things. However, let’s be together forever until the end.” – Tiffany
“The nine of us being together is more important than anything else.” – Hyoyeon
“We can only shine brightest as SNSD when SNSD stands on one stage as nine.” – Yuri
“Like a mirror, I look right into their eyes, and they reflect me.” – Sooyoung
“Nine different people gathered and became like a family. To me, it is a very meaningful tie.” – Yoona
“We firmly believe in the power of unity and feel that it is easier to get pass hardships and challenges as a team. This gels us and keeps us strong.” – Seohyun
For me, I’m proud to be a SONE because of the SoShi Bond our girls have. It never ceases to amaze me; 9 girls becoming one. To celebrate for our girls’ 4th anniversary coming up, I made a tribute to SoShi Bond.
I hope Girls’ Generation will continue to persevere for a long time ❤

Over these years our Girl’s have been so strong. I love their bond! I’m so happy to have them in my life! I love your post!
God, this article is amazing Joyce!!! The soshibond is indeed something incredible, and I think that Sones are very fortunate to have the chance to learn from and understand it. While doing so, we only come to love the Nine even more.
Really loved how you ended it with a quote from each member~~ 😀 Awesome way to begin my day! xD
Whenever they have those moments it makes me wanna cry. (Tears of joy, of course!) Because what they share is something so real, so unbreakable, so beautiful that us, as S♥NES, can feel it too. They are role models. They are heroes. They are inspirations. They deserve nothing less than what they are recieving. Soshi Bond jjang !

BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN post, Joyce 😀 😀 😀 !!!
You’ve certainly hit the essence of the “Soshibond Effect” on its proverbial “head” ;).
GOOD JOB !!!
(By the way, I LOVE the way you added the individual quotes at the end of the post to close the article. Well Done !)
thw ‘FIve years curse’, SNSD will definitely stay strong for more than 5years… im not saying this because i hoped for it, its because i analysed it based on their bonds.. 🙂 their bonds with each other is undefeatable…<3<3
I was almost tearing up on the quotes and during the ending of the video.
What’s with all these cheesy post lately?
SNSD debuted in August 5th so all the “cheesy” post is to celebrate their 4th anniversary.
Congrats girls! Keep on holding strong!
Don’t worry Oneul, we’re going to post news as well. These posts are just stickied, hence why they are on top.
it’s amazing how the 9 girls become 1!
soshi bond.. it’s 1 of the reason i love our soshi girls!
but i don’t know how many reason that made me love the girls so much!
our soshi girls just amazing!! soshi jjang!!
I don’t know if it’s because I just woke up and my mind’s all groggy but your post really moved me. You describe their bond in the most concise and compelling way, and then you go on to include individual quotes that leave me in tears, and then you go even further with that video at the end. Damn you. Beautiful post! Their bond is extraordinary.
soshi bond….admire them so much!
really touching! i want them to be successful always in the future!
SNSD, fighting! ^^
I agree. You’d think with a group this big at least one girl would have walked out during those four years but instead they’ve stuck around.
SNSD are my 9 genies said:
“Sooyoung’s long legs to make up for Sunny’s shortness”
lol, I don’t know why but I burst up laughing at this part ^^
anyways, another well-written article 🙂 seriously, I think this blog has the best posts about the girls!
I love Soshi bond…That’s one of the reasons why I love them.
I feel amazed and warmed to see them love and care for each other.
It’s just so beautiful. Thank you for the awesome post.

There is a Non Physical Consciousness Entity who call themselves the Collective of Nine, and they reside in Sixth Density. “We are infinity with nine Angelic sections at the front of each piece of triangular shaped infinity.”
When the Collective of Nine was asked the question “Why do I feel instant and strong connections in consciousness to some people?” Their reply: “These are the individuals from your soul grouping. They vibrate on the same frequency as you and embody similar consciousness levels. The stronger this feeling is the more significant that person is to be in your life. The meeting with that person will have been laid out in your incarnate blueprint. Meaning it is “destiny” or “fate” that brought you together.”
Well, I believe that just like the Collective of Nine in non physical, SNSD is a collective of nine in physical reality.
Wonder Girls and Kara are actually quite close friends with SNSD. Especially Nicole and Hara from Kara, and Sun Mi from Wonder Girls. Sun Mi really adores Taeyeon and raves a lot about her to her own group. Lol.
These 3 biggest girl groups in K pop are probably from the same consciousness grouping when they incarnated into physical reality. There is a harmony in the way they each work to spread the hallyu wave together to the world, even though they are supposed to be “rival girl groups”. There is a certain bond between the three groups. Many people come to know about K pop and SNSD most directly because of Wonder Girls and Kara.
SNSD is a soul grouping themselves, with possible super-grouping with Kara and and Wonder Girls.

9 means . . . . Exist for 99 years minimum .
A beautifully written, sentimental post detailing SNSD’s journey as a cohesive unit of inspiration for all of us. Even after 4 long, exhausting yet exciting years together, it appears they will persist for posterity’s sake.
~~What a beautifully written post!~~
I almost ended up crying while studying in school.
The way SOSHI BOND draws strength from each member and stay unbreakeable is a sign that they will have many more years to go.. such is the awesomeness of their bond. Wishing them to stay together forever and continue shining for everyone. ~~HAPPY 4TH ANNIVERSARY SNSD!!!~~

HAPPY 4TH ANNIVERSARY TO SNSD!!! SOSHI BOND FTW!!!
Beautifully written, took the words right out of my mouth about how I feel about these nine incredible girls. Great FMV, and I like how Born To Be A Lady has become something of an unofficial theme song for the girls and their 4th anniversary.
Happy 4th anniversary, and thanks for all the great memories, looking forward to more in the future!
HAPPY 4TH ANNIVERSARY TO SNSD AND ALL SONES
I like it, especially the quotes of each member. . .
So touching (it made me almost cry T__T)
Snsd really means a lot to me 🙂
well, 9 is the perfect number…
take any number divisible by 9 and add it’s parts together, you get 9
54…..5 + 4=9
27…..2 + 7=9
Soshi is PERFECT!
