Thanks for sharing haha, I bet the demand for this is extremely high. but this teaser was actually leaked out quite a while back
Yea but it was posted up by someone else and then it got removed.
woww a.m.a.z.i.n.g…. how many customes in this mv? I saw a bit michael jackson costumes here hehehe.
i thought the one with the bangs is yoona, turned out is yuri! kekekekek
who is the choreographer? From US too? the dance in the begining (2nd pic), is very familiar right? Most of hollywood films seems to use this choreography, i saw this in many action heroine movie, like suckerpunch, resident evil, kick ass, so close, and others. 😀
The Girls will definitely bring the boys out! *pointing to self*
boyS… *pointing to self also*

I made the silent scream!! Only for the SoShi!!!<3<3<3
Girls Bring The Boys Out!!! ♥ Oh yeah!!!
this teaser if converted to mp3 would be an awesome ringtone…
Yeah…bring it on.
Yuri with bangs? ME LIKE!!!
16 seconds of eye-popping visuals, dazzling sets, crisp dance moves and beautiful women in stunning attires? Oh my.
Great!!! The MV teaser released finally 😀
But what is the different between Korean and English verison?
Carefully listen to both (several times maybe). And you’ll notice that a korean part is translated/replaced by english lyrics, and another korean part is turned mute in the english version.
The 9 ladies look Stunning indeed in the teaser MVs 😉 !
I’m mesmerized already 😀 !!!
Looking forward to the next teaser MV :).
Is it Rino’s choreography too? I HOPE SO!!! o/
YURI IS SO AMAZING!!
MY YUL JJANG!!!!
It Just Too Amazing^^
nospazzingnospazzingnospazzingnospazzingnospazzing… i’m done.
In my eyes they went from cute > beautiful > sexy > fierce
Cant wait for the full m, this teaser sound a bit like gwen stefani hollaback girls… 😀
Looks good, only complaint is pointed towards SM for having the same old MV styles. Get a storyline already.

I really didn’t like the song part of the teaser to be honest…. And I wanted what was expected, which was an elegant choreography that wasn’t all about their legs and more about still being better in heavy dresses. But I guess I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up so high. Who would /actually/ ever think not showing their legs would be a /good/ idea? …
I agree, not that I hated the dance but I was really sick of looking at Koop groups wearing skimpy clothes and dancing suggestively I guess I wanted snsd to be different and wear long dresses so it doesn’t show their legs 😦
Agreed 100%, if they start going for the “skimpy clothes and dancing suggestively” image, then they lose the thing that sets them apart from the other kpop groups =/. I can see that their choreo is going for a western style, so I guess the costumes/choreo is trying to appeal to the US market?
i will support if snsd really want doing america market but at same time i don’t want snsd lose the identity as k-pop… don’t need copy other country…just do it they own style…if need change, do it little by little…but i like they as k-pop group…
Showing skin is for the appeal. But I agree. I very much prefer them cover up. They’re too good already to show skin, they don’t really need that to gather attention, their talents alone shines more than enough.
If anything showing skin will give people more reasons to talk bad about them. “These girls lack talents, so they capture people with their legs…especially “the boys”,” Yea, that kind of comment.
That, and showing legs doesn’t seperate them from the rest either. It’s too, normal?
Anyway, the song is OK from the 40 seconds I’ve listen so far. I still have faith in them.
I heard that rumor too. It said they would be dancing in short ballet dresses in some scenes, and burdensome Victorian dresses in others. The song was going to be an upbeat dance song, with influences from the sweet melodies European music boxes. It also said that the song would be about trying to break free from all the stereotypes and double-standards that are held against women. My hopes were so high!
I realized it wasn’t true when I saw the leaked version of this teaser last week. I’m still excited for their comeback, but the way that rumor was so detailed I thought it was true (especially since it came out the same day as Taeyeon’s teaser pic)
Yeah, that rumor made it seem so interesting. I was actually looking forward to that. The whole victorian, european music box, running down hallway with candles, etc. Dancing in dress using body and hand movement, it sounded really intriguing. Then they show the first teaser, them walking in the snow with long dressses and looking like ladies. Which matches the concept. And then with the leak teaser and on, the whole thing just went into a whole other route.
I was hoping for unique-ness. But I guess that’s not happening. The 30 sec sample pretty much confirm that. It will be a dance music video, and that should be that. Oh well…but they’re still angels.
You know, this isn’t the first time SONEs get a bit upset on what they was expecting on the MV.
“Mr. TAXI” MV is even more confusing. How could a song with the world “TAXI” on the title don’t even show any TAXI on the MV? Even there was no TAXI-related storyline in it.
The “Bad Girl” MV is another case. The costume and coreography is fit with the concept, but the final MV looks so raw and unpolished. The camera angle used was so boring, there was no variation. I guess they are in hurry since the girls were busy held their Japan concerts these days.
For this album, I can say there is no correlation between the concept in the teaser pics and what was released in the MV. I don’t know why SM keep doing this. The concept they are offering is not solid enough.
I’m tired of this kind of MVs. No outdoor scene. No storyline. SM should do something new, something refreshing to keep us fascinated.
aye! I totally agree.. Sigh, ever wonder if there was a way to let SM know how we feel? But i bet they wouldn’t really listen either right?
Ah, but from reading the replies here it seems like we are the minority so… Oh well, one can hope i guess.
Minority or not, we love them just as much. We care and worry for them. So even if no one listens, it’s still good to let our voices be heard.
I am the only one hearing Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani? Teddy Riley closely followed the Eurythmics Sweet dreams for his Rania song, I am hoping his GG song doesn’t sound like Hollaback Girl for more than that rif.
Even if it does I’m going to be buying and spazzing over it, just sayin…..
OMFG!!! SNSD so hawt~~~ *nosebleed*
30sec preview on Amazon
I probably won’t be the first to mention it, but 30s teaser been posted by Amazon
Damn, Yoona 0_0
Damn! i can’t wait to hear the whole song and to see the whole MV. it’s gonna be on epic proportions!
Anyone else noticed Fany’s mistake during the teaser? cute fany fany tiffany xD
Great! Hollaback Girl suspicions put to rest, sounds good to me! Can’t wait to see the dance!
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t underwhelmed.
so ….. you’re excited then? hahaha?
WOOOOOW , IM SOOO EXCITED
(Finally) a teaser that musically truly catch my attention and more : got me obsessed.
Listening / watching both versions again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again & again …
They are beautiful
Music is beautiful
Dance moves are beautiful
Makeup is beautiful
Costumes are beautiful
I wish I would have not seen these teasers. I was doing fine but now I’m obsessed w/ October 19 as if it was my own birthday. Geez.

I can’t stop either. SM knows how to keep us wanting more.
I’m confused. Are the girls debuting in the US with this, or are they just releasing an english version for the non-korean fans? o_ô
They are pretty much debuting with this. Since it is afterall their first english cd in the US.
No, they’re not debuting in the US. This Album is more of a test on the English speaking market. They’ll probably decide whether or not to go through with a US debut depending on the results of this release. Besides, a slower transition into the US market will be more likely to work than if they just went for it.
SM is smart, they know that if they want to sell a product well, they have to create the desire for it first.
I’ve been corrected and taken to school twice. lol My apology, what I meant by saying debut, I am referring to the fact that it’s their first ever english song put into the us market. I didn’t mean it as a full on hardcore debut. My bad for not making it clear. Sorry.
They are not debuting in US with this i don’t think because they said that SNSD will not be doing any American activities other than the New York SMTown concert. Maybe they will in the future though
Right. Though by debuting I meant that it is their entrance song to the US. With it being their first english song of course. But if debuting means to promote, be on tv, etc, then yea, that’s not what I meant.
There’s a guy on youtube doing a giveaway for “The Boys’ album. Just thought I’d share with folks. Any opportunity is better than nothing, for those who truly can’t buy the cd at this time.
Just heard the 30 sec teaser from Amazon: Wow ! That song is Good 😉 !!!
Looking forward to the 19th of October now :D.
TAEYEON!! black+blonde=PINK!!!!!~ this thing is SUPA DUPA incredible!!!!

Wow after I watched this teaser I was surprised because they look hot but I was a little disturbed by the music only a little bit but overall the third teaser was great
OH MY GOD. GUYS. JESSICA IS THE ONE IN WHITE!! AND IT MAKES SENSE! SHE’S OUR ICE PRINCESS~ XD
oh gosh! Yuri in the 6th pic @@,
I’m so proud of yoona!!! Is she the one who sang 2nd? I hope they’ll sing this LIVE!!! hehe at last a SNSD song that I can easily sing with and understand! 😀 😀
oh my goddess !!! LOVE IT LOTS BABE ! LOVE ALL !!! CANT WAIT FOR THE MV !!! Actually compare to the different Ver. i prefer the ENGLISH cause its more balanced and smooth to that kind of tempo beat =DD love it !! Still cant wait ANY LONGER!!!!!
omg i didnt think the girls could get any hotter but O.O there it is… I can’t explain how excited i am im to the highest point of spazzivity. *grabs ice* T^T doesn’t work.
i cant understand their english.. except for Jess and Fany obviously. Loooove Sunny’s hair ..amazing

Yuri singing in english is pretty good… I guess Sooyoung is the worst speaking english. 😛
Sunny! I’m sure that’s Sunny’s voice =D
Taeyeon: Soon as I step on the scene I know that they’ll be watching me, (watching me).
Yoona: ima be the hottest in this spot there ain’t no stopping me, (stopping me).
Sunny: I know life is a mystery, I’m gonna make history, i’m taking this from the start
I think i lost my mind at that time
how could i left you? I only love you
i am really sorry
i could only cry
i think i lost my mind at that time
how could i left you? I really miss it, i miss you
please forgive me
i think i lost my mind..
Wow. it’s been one week since I haven’t saw them. it feels like a year!
totally miss them a lot! 😉
the teasers it just keeps on getting better! 😀
Way To Go Snsd!
I love this concept. Sunny’s English pronounciation is quite good, actually. From the English teaser I can only understand what she’s singing. The choreo looks hawttt & I kinda like the audio. Yuri taking centre stage with that leg movement melts my heart away ❤ SooFany looks so glamourous and princess like. OMG I'm gonna die.
OMG OMG OMG ! I am just speechless!
i think that their eyebrows are a bit too light
they would look better with darker eyebrows -.-
total awesomeness!!! ^_^

There are some people that are only complaining! Please, they are awesome so stop criticizing the girls so much.
Our jobs as sones is to support, no matter what.
Of course they’re showing a little more skin, they all are in their 20’s, they can’t be cute forever. It’s called growing up, for some that doesn’t know.
I think I have to correct you here …
Of course we are supporting the girls. But supporting doesn’t necessary means that we agree with everything about them no matter what and don’t show our own thoughts and opinions, including our criticism. That’s what a blind fan does. We give our thoughts because we care.
I don’t see any relation of being mature (in their 20s) and showing more skin. I’m just afraid that in order to appeal for U.S. market, our girls get sexier and sorry, wilder. I can’t imagine if our girls start to become some sort of sex symbol for U.S. fans, like may other artists there. They will lost the pure image they have built so far since their debut. The image that differs them from any other female performers and make most of us fall in love with them. I’d like to see them as lovely girls, not wild and sexy babes.
Growing up means that they should show us more of their talent, not their skin. I’m afraid people will start to look low on them if this trend keeps going.
Anyway, just my opinion. I’m sure some of us have the similar thoughts with me.
Similar thoughts with you? That would be me. I agree with what you said. We love them because they are loveable. They have worked so hard to get this far, if they stop being themselves now and change for some stupid western perspective who only love their woman slutty, then all that they’ve worked for would be meaningless. The old SNSD would be gone, losing to fame. If they lose themselves even deeper and forget their old fans, what would become of sone? Who love them dearly and support their every cd. All would be meaningless. SNSD deserve better, their fans deserve better. They don’t need to change.
Heck, showing skin was not my problem, we’ve all seen them do that with ‘Genie’. What I fear is them having to change to go far in the west. I wish them success, but I rather have them go far in the world by being themselves, no change. And if they don’t go far in the west, at least they fail for being themselves. Always go with dignity. That’s the SNSD we all grow and love, yes?
Just to make it clear before someone jump the gun on me, when I say they shouldn’t change for “some stupid western perspective” I am not referring to everyone, or the west in general, I am only targeting those who sits in the higher up, with one-sided perception on success, the ones who always want to put their view onto everyone to fit a specific image if they want to succeed.
And I apologize for using word such as “slutty”, but I am not calling any specifics, only throwing it out there to those who may find sense in what I’m trying to say.
Am I the only person who doesn’t see any more skin than they normally show? Yes, there’s short shorts, but the girls have been wearing them since Gee. I really don’t see what the problem is. They weren’t sluts then, and they aren’t now.
I didn’t say it was a problem. I was in fear of a problem. I never said they are slutty either. Then or now.
everyone’s talking about tae’s pink extensions, but didn’t you notice that sooyougng has purple extensions? eh eh =)
anyway, i seriously can’t wait for the MV.
LoL xD why are people fighting about their legs and skins? haha 😀
Seems like you just prove to us that you really do care about the girls.
But it really doesn’t matter if they show off their legs, the one thing that is needed to see is how they sing and perform.
what do performers do? they sing and dance right 😉
what do models do? they show off of their skins.
so which do you prefer to see them as a performer or model? 🙂
look, all of us have our own opinion.
But the girls are not being controlled by SMent, they have their own minds and will, so they are the ones that decides or suggest things to them.
Don’t worry if someone will really criticize them, just because of this. Just remember we are one.
Just kindly look at the bright side, and be optimistic. 😉
“the girls are not being controlled by SMent, they have their own minds and will, so they are the ones that decides or suggest things to them.”
Is that a fact, or wishful thinking? 😀
“Just remember we are one.”
And we are one, which is “one” reason why I fear seperation. Which could happen if the girls change in order to appeal to the west music industry. The fanbase would split in two. Notice I said “if”.
But like you, I still have faith. Or try my best to. I’ll be hopeful. 🙂
I love them. And to answer your question, they can be singer, model, actress or whichever, I’ll support them, just as long as they remain true to themselves to the end. They have character, and that’s the major reason why I love them.
“If you’re still Girls’ Generation in the next lifetime, I will still be a S♥NE.”
Just like this statement. 😉
for me, I will be forever a Sone. 🙂
I really like your faith to them. That is really the way to support them. Believe in them.
I can assure you that they won’t separate. 😉
‘Cause a promise, is a promise. hehe 😀
oh yeah, one thing. about the fact and wishful thinking,
It is a fact. 😉 haha. SMent can only manage them, not able to control their passion and determination. 😀
Fair enough. I believe you. I’ll believe in them. SNSD forever in my heart. 🙂
I’m SUPER excited that SNSD is making a comeback in Korea, it means more music and MVs to spazz over! And it’ll honestly be interesting to see how they fair out in the American and European charts with their English version of the Boys. So far I really like the chorus part! Ehh I will admit though, Yoona doesn’t sound like Yoona at all in the 30sec audio teaser -_-… based on her 4minute solo performance she doesn’t sound like she has good English pronunciations at all. And this is one of the main reasons why I’m iffy about having SNSD tackle the American music industry, only because of their thick accents. If they can’t pronounce English well then they’re going to sound weird singing in English, or sound fake. I know Tiffany is awesome in English, and I think Jessica has good English pronunciations too (though I sense more accent in her’s compared to Tiffany’s), but other than those two I’m not sure about the rest. I’ve heard Taeyeon sing English songs and sound great, so I’m not to worried about her, and Yuri’s IF solo audio wasn’t bad either, so we’ll see. Finger’s crossed that SNSD does beyond WELL this year!!
Hey! Nobody saw how Music Bank totally confused seohyun with yuri?!?!
First i’d like to say that…My girls’ are freakn’ HOT!…..but of course they are.
So after some thought, I think I’ll also chime in about this English pronunciantion topic. Or actually, not about that but something more relevant.
To me, it seems that English pronunciation, although it is an important matter for a foreign group releasing an US album, seems secondary to the actual issue. I myself can’t really hear what they are saying in most English POP songs anyways and lyrics in rap and hip-hop are also always “re-inventing” grammar and pronunciation of English.
So the actual issue is of that of an “ASIAN” artist on the American pop music scene. Because you know what…there haven’t been any. Any to have really mattered. Sure there are Asian-American members of a band (a couple in Linkin’ Park) but no solo artist nor a group where the majority is Asian, Asian-American or Asian mixed-race. The reasoning behind this (discrimination?, lack of signature “Asian” sound?, too small a minority to influence the market?) have been discussed in newspaper and magazine articles. Personally, I believe that this “lack of a signature “Asian” sound” argument is the least relevant when most white artists are doing African-American music (R&B, Blues, Soul, Hip-hop…etc..). Is there really a “white” twist to their music? I guess in some areas yes but mostly no. Even heavy metal, mostly considered “white” music, wouldn’t be where it is today without Jimmy Hendrix’s revolutionary innovations on the electric guitar and blues in general. Take that heavy metal skin heads! Yes, your music can also thank a genius African-American.
In the US, although African-Americans were the minority, they were the originators of music genres. And white Americans could be popular copying black music, just because they were the majority. And they were “Cool” for it.
The fact is that Asian-Americans in the US have not been able to creat a place for themselves in the music industry from the inside, although they have been prominent in classical music and are slowly gaining presence in movies, tv and sports. The subjective opininon is that they are not “Cool” and the objective evaluation is that they are not “marketable”, at least not in POP music. They can’t rely on the Asian-American population to sell records because it is just too small to be profitable. They need cross-ver appeal. Plenty of Asians have shown their singing prowess on American Idol, but non make it to the latter rounds and non are every signed.
So how does SNSD fit into this picture? Well, they are not artists trying to make it up the US system from the inside as Asian-Americans. They are a very successful foreign artist that come from the Asian music industry where they are already famous and celebrated. Let’s say like Ichiro for baseball.
The criticism of their pronunciation is only going to be a lower-level reflection of the bigger issue of what the American audience think of them as an artist and their music. If they think they are cool, their lack in accent-free English will be looked as something just to be expected. Of course there is a limit to how much can be forgiven but I think the girls did a fine job in the short clips I’ve heard.
We’ll have to see, but I believe that they should approach the US just like how they approached Japan. Which I think is what they’re doing. As a foreign POP girl band ROYALTY instead of a newby trying to enter a market bottom up. The latter method is just asking for an enormous uphill battle. Show them why the majority of the world already thinks that they are the epitome of Cool and that the US should catch up to the rest of the world with one of the greatest things to ever happen to POP music.
It looks like SM and Interscope is going to test the waters by releasing this single without any planned activities and aggresive marketing. We can only speculate what the reception will be but hopefully it will be positive.
I guess we’ll see in the coming months!
We’ve all heard the Girls at their solo concerts doing English language songs with admirable pronunciation, so I don’t think pronunciation for listener comprehension is a huge concern.
Pop singers here in the U.S. get grief for being artificial, for just being hired guns for songwriters and producers who put words in their mouth. But at least poor Britney can understand what she is singing! I don’t know how Americans would react to hear SNSD sing in English, but then some(?) most(?) members unable to understand and answer a question in English. “They are just mouthing words?!?” I could hear people say. And i think that is why the voices in the teaser feel a little flat to me. It has that metallic pronunciation that fails to convey emotion (but of course, this is not a ballad). And that is why Tiffany singing in English is really a treat, because she conveys emotions so well.
But it is only a teaser, so I remind myself. Lastly, to put you in a good mood, here is how far they have come: Here is all nine singing Santa Baby in English on Dec. 31, 2009. (You may notice a related video of Yoona singing “Like a Virgin” but that is best not watched.)
Imho, i think for them to have long term success in the US, they need to hire someone OTHER THAN Teddy Riley to produce their music. The key is being original and true to themselves as artists. e.g. Bruno Mars…
Not trying to beat down on Teddy, but i just can’t see his music really being so original in the US market now. Also, the only people who know themselves the best are SNSD themselves! xD
I am looking forward to the new album though.. haha
how i wish taeyeon has a normal regular hair, doesn’t matter short or long….her image is getting unhealthier every minute…unhappy with the way she turns out to be….kim taengooo…Y????
I’m not really sure what you mean by her image being unhealthy…
The only change I see is that she’s growing a bit older, skinnier and her hair isn’t as always smooth as before, but what else? I’m her bias so maybe I’m blind, please enlighten.
All I see is an angel in front of me…lol
ok, maybe I do see one thing unhealthy about her. she makes my heart stop every now and then…sorry.
