Yesterday, SNSD attended a “Surprise Blood Drive Event” organized by KBS.
Yoona, Tiffany, Taeyeon, Yuri, Hyoyeon and Sunny were on deck at the KBS Shin-Gwan TV Hall to help raise awareness for blood stock shortages across Korea.
Prior to the event the following was posted on the Girls’ Generation Official Facebook page:
Hello~ This is Girls’ Generation~ Have any of you ever donated blood?
In our country, every 7 seconds, 1 blood bag, 1 minute, 9 blood bags, every hour, 517 blood bags, and in a day, 12,377 bags are used~ And so they say there is a shortage~
So Girls’ Generation will be holding a “Surprise Blood Drive Event” with KBS on September 7th!

To those who take part in the “Surprise Blood Drive Event” with Girls’ Generation
There will be a memory presented to you that you will never forget, so we hope many people come~~~^^
By “taking part in and supporting” the event, the girls’ remained true to their word as they also donated blood on the day. Although this wouldn’t be the first time, as the members, as well as their fans, have donated blood in the past for various charitable causes.
Lucky fans who donated blood during this blood drive however, were able to meet the girls’ and receive autographed goodies:
Fany, Hyo and Yoong also paid a visit to a young patient at Korea University Ansan Hospital:

your so lucky you able to see them….
jae jung said:
yes they donate their blood one by one, hahaha. sunny and yuri is so skinny omG~
When I saw the term “surprise blood drive”… I thought of Dracula.
Did the girls really donate blood? Are the shorties really over 45kg? Do any of the girls not named Jessica really get over 4 hours of sleep on a typical night?
*recalls the last time I had an IV used on me in the hospital*
*remembers the discomfort experience*
Regardless of that, I’m very much willing to donate some blood. To say I’d do it for SNSD might be a bit too much, but at least they’ve inspired to help out those in need. =)
How I wish they’ll do the same thing when they come to Singapore next year ;).
I’m almost certain our Singapore National Blood Bank will have their hands full coping with the influx of donors (both SONEs and casual fans) on that day. The blood needs of our Singapore hospitals will be adequately fulfilled then 😀 !
I’m a regular blood donor, by the way, having donated 56 times to date.
Anyway, lucky K-SONEs indeed to have such random motivation (and fan freebies 🙂 !) to persuade them to give a part of themselves (literally) to help others in need.
Taeyeon’s reaction to the guy screaming out KIM TAEEEYEOOON!!!!! is brilliant.
i’m so happy they’re taking a part in a world health advocacy! 😀 i really wish i could donate blood to help as well, just turned 16 this year!
i wish they would come to the Philippines this year D:
but either way, I’m still gonna try my best to help donate! WOOH! =))
Oh my gosh, HyoYeon looks like a fricking goddess ♥
yes,I totally agree with you! Although she is not my bias, but I have to admit that she is so gorgeous!!!

I swear I won’t even feel the needle because I would be so overwhelmed by the presence of Soshi and their warm smiles. Take my blood please!
OMG they look so pretty especially Hyo! She looks like the sun and really is standing out:)
Taengoo and Fanyy same ring in the same finger (?) cof cof cof taeny ♥ . . .
Kimm Taeyooonn !!! i love reaction of tae is so cute xD
What if i was suffering and needed to be infused with Sunny’s blood to heal?! Omg, i think i’m gonna faint like right Now!! O.O
I’ve never given blood before but if snsd says we need it then I must gain courage and donate >.<
Darn that needle

feels bad, man

they did something really good by doing this.
some operations and injuries because of accidents needs a lot of blood.
specially when the patient is bleeding. of course there is the possibility to use a physiological NaCl solution to some extent but it can’t replace the need of blood.
