Despite the music video being released over a month ago, the English version of ‘The Boys’ is now publicly available on SNSD’s very own VEVO channel! Although both versions were unveiled at the same time on October 19 on the SMTOWN YouTube channel, the English one was blocked a few days after its release. Only until recently has it been made accessible to most counties on SNSD’s official VEVO channel.
So why make it available now? A possible reason is SNSD’s upcoming international maxi single which was said to be released on November 19. That was four days ago. Up to now, there has been no official statement regarding its delay, but if anything, the English version of ‘The Boys’ being made available on SNSD’s VEVO channel is some indication that it’s still to come. November 29 has been rumoured as its new release date.
