On SNSD’s new reality show, “Girls’ Generation and Dangerous Boys”, the girls are tasked with mentoring five troubled teenagers from different areas of Korea, hoping to solve their problems and see positive change in their characters. The first episode aired on Sunday, December 18th.
On this first episode, SNSD and viewers alike were introduced to the five ‘dangerous’ boys. They are: Hwang Yonghyun who doesn’t pay attention in class, talks back to teachers and constantly lies, Park Kyungkyu who isn’t on speaking terms with either of his parents and is known for being violent (but despite all that wants to change), tall and timid Kim Seonghwan who is passionate about music but careless about everything else, Kim Hwehoon who messes around day and night without any purpose or goals in life, and Goo Jisoo whose sleepy smile, deep voice and immaculate school uniform could fool you into thinking he’s a good kid.
Although not the worst of the worst, especially when compared to what would be considered dangerous in the West, the boys are still restless youths who come from troubled backgrounds and have difficulties of their own. Their crimes range from run-ins with the law to drinking and smoking to sleeping in class, but what they all share is an indifferent, I-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude. They don’t seem to think they’re extraordinary or special, they think life is easy, they do as they please, they’re devoid of any hopes or dreams; they’re living life aimlessly. Ultimately, they need guidance, and that’s where SNSD comes in.
Admittedly, I wasn’t expecting much from this show when it was first announced, but the pilot episode left me pleasantly surprised. The selected boys, who seem to be willing to accept change, offer up an interesting dynamic to the nine members of SNSD. The lighthearted atmosphere yet serious nature of the show was also very engaging. Whether or not the girls can cut to the core of the boys’ problems remains speculation, but there’s no doubt that they are eager to help these kids turn their lives around. This show just might work because the boys also want to get their lives back on track.
According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, the very first broadcast of the show recorded the highest national viewership rating (1.299%) among the four general program channels of the day. Let’s hope the show continues to draw in a large viewership and that the girls can successfully help the boys start anew.
Thaenks to taenacity for the speedy subs.

Yea, i wasnt expecting much from this show either. but I’m curious to watch it now after seeing a clip with Seohyun getting mad at one kid.lol

i want to mean tiffany’s musical is going to be excellent.
I think Sunny has the best student because when all the other kids went to go smoke he said he doesnt also he’s not as bad
I think Jessica has fallen for Jisoo, lmao
just my opinion.. but does this show even make any sense? why would teenage BOYS let any WOMAN tell them what to do with their lives? sure, they are SNSD, but last time i checked, society-wise it’s majorly common in south korea for a man to be in charge of the decision making and not the woman. to me this is just hypocrite media whoring on the channel’s end. SNSD would be better off having some vacation.
Actually the show is not about “teenage BOYS letting any WOMAN telling them what to do with their lives”, in the end “The Boys” still have the final decision to their lives, the “Girls” are there to guide them not to order them what to do and hopefully give some positive influence for the sake of their lives.
since when did boys listen to women? let alone “TEENAGE BOYS”? this show has no point. it’s a sob story that SMENT believes will “improve” SNSD’s image. REALITY CHECK. if “reality tv” was real, our world would be more screwed up than it already is.
After I watched the first part I really afraid of SNSD getting hurt inside the show as few of them seem like just want wasting their time for their whole life.
Hmm…I love Seohyun, but….I don’t know, I think her and Taeyeon could have created a more comfortable atmosphere or a better job in general. There’s Seohyun almost lecturing him (in my opinion) and talking about herself, which may seem a little high-and-mighty; then there’s Taeyeon seeming not to really do anything although she said she’s good with disobedient kids but I didn’t get a good impression from their Mentor-ee’s reaction. In the end, it could’ve been the cuts that were aired too. Overall, I think all the other groups did fairly well by listening and creating a welcoming atmosphere, though Yuri and Sica’s group kinda worry me too (dang, those two girls are too distracted from their Mentor-ee’s good looks!!). Props to HyoYoona and Sunny!!
Yeah, I agree with you. If you want to get on the kid’s good side, you can’t judge him from the get go and you shouldn’t talk down to him, which unfortunately was what Seohyun was doing. I know she means well, but this is where I think her inflexibility might hinder her actually helping. On the other hand, Sunny’s approach – reserving all judgments, talking to him like a person, letting him speak for himself – was amazing and seemed to be much more effective.
I don’t think Seohyun was talking down to him. By using herself as an example, I think her intention was to show him that it is possible to achieve anything, rather than to tell him off. The problem is that the public doesn’t regard her as a normal girl, even though she may feel that way. Thus, her comparison ended up seeming more like her just being all high-and-mighty.
The only way this mentoring is going to work, is if the girls take the step down off the pedestals we have put them on. Let’s face it, even with all the god given talents they have, if it wasn’t for all the hard work they put in, they wouldn’t be where they are today. I beleive that this is what they need to show to the boys and it might explain why they are entering them into Street Jam.
It certainly wasn’t her intention to talk down to him but I feel that’s the way it came off. I felt she was a little insensitive in a naive sort of way. By that I mean I don’t think she realised the way in which she was talking to him. You’re right in that in order for this to work, they have to demonstrate to the boys that hard work, that giving a shit and putting in the effort, does pay off. In the end, this show is a great opportunity for both the boys and the girls to change their outlooks in life, if not significantly then at least in the slightest.

Send those guys to the military so that they will learn discipline and get an education.
and then give SNSD the vacation they really deserves so that they can recharge there energy and have some quality time with there families and friends. just my two cents.
what those guys do isnt good but there are guys that are much worse
i work in a really bad neighborhood where they sell drugs and shoot each other.
If SNSD ever showed up there i should ask them to leave immidiately sick of worry for there safety.
I think they still cant go to the military since they have not finished high school. But yes the Girls really need serious time out and sadly they wont have enough until the new year ends.
i don’t think it matters whether you graduate high school. if you’re screwed up, they throw you into the army to “fix your crappy personality”.
Oh my, that guy has a boner with Yoona and Hyoyeon. Well, I can’t blame him 😀
This is going to be interesting indeed 😆 !
Let’s just hope the ends justify the means and the 5 “boys” really change for the better, because, frankly speaking, the 9 ladies really need a vacation more than mentoring these youths ;).
(Our favourite ladies need the rest time 🙂 !)
Finally Parts 4 and 5 are released :D, i’ve watched most of it, Sunny seems very pro approaching him even though she’s by herself :). Seohyun looks like she’s gonna murder someone LOL!
LOL at 17:00 part 4 the guy with the school uniform starts smoking! Didn’t he say he would stop…
It seems like when they’re with SNSD they will try to be on their best behavior, but when their not they will be “dangerous boys” again… sigh, good luck girls it’s gonna be hard.
Oh and btw i became a SONE about 1 month ago and just wanna say: thank you SNSDkorean, for everything your my #1 trusted snsd website , better than Allkpop even if it’s really popular…
Sorry it was 13:30 – 15:00.
Initially I was a bit doubtful over the concept of the program. But now that I hv watched the pilot episode, I just can’t wait for the next episode. The girls are all just so funny especially Jessica. I am so jealous all of the 5 boys. Being able to get about so close up with SNSD!
After watching the first episode, I’m really looking forward to this series. I think many people, me included, were initially just too hung up on the title (which isn’t even a true translation of the Korean meaning). The girls and guys will no doubt learn from this experience, more or less. I’m glad the producers also decided to include professions to help guide them.
I have watched the show. And overall, I agree that the boys are indeed need help and guidance.
All of the girls lead the boys quite well. But I don’t think Seohyun’s approach is correct.
In my opinion, she shouldn’t talk down to the boys and critic him straight.
She also shouldn’t compare her life with that boy. It’s completely different.
The boy would feel down and feel verbally abused. I think Taeyeon also feel burdened by Seohyun’s questions for the boy.
But I know Seohyun’s intention is to make the boy realize his misconduct and behavior.
This only episode 1. I will definitely anticipate the next episode.
i’m sure the photo shows how “DANGEROUS” those boys are… -.- trying so hard to get viewers and try to create some sob story to “move” the hearts of the audience…. can’t we have a legitimate SNSD SHOW not some dumb reality TV crap….god….
You’re so supportive!
I wanna be a bad boy too TAT.
n being mentored by Girls >///<

1.299 %? isn’t that still small?
it’s the whole nation which is actually a pretty decent amount. when normally viewer ratings are only including one city like Seoul and maybe the other programs are really unpopular….
the boys need guide and attention….. i believes snsd will give they best to them…open they heart about life and love…. than the boys need take care themself…..
wow i actually like this show. just being with the girls and the fun atmosphere should atleast make them feel bad for their decisions and could actually help them in some way.
Is this for real?!
Sounds like a disaster for a show even if SNSD is included.
surprisingly, i must say that this show did very well after seeing its first episode in contrast to what i thought its going to be. im really looking forward to the series and hope that the show will get more fun for the whole cast and us, viewers :))
when will the next episode be aired?
or when will you upload another video? I’m really curious. wow jjang!
When they were looking at the clips of the boys’ life, Seohyun seemed pretty mad at Yonghyun.
Please upload the next episode!
OMO, Maknae is really serious! This was actually pretty good!
this is a new concept– i don’t know if it’ll be effective in the long run because i think these boys need mentors that are more relatable than 9 out-of-this-world goddesses, but the girls have hearts of gold so we’ll see what happens. i love how absolutely dorky yulsic are (but that was expected)… and even mama seohyun’s ways were to be expected (since that’s how she always lectures her unnies), but who really blew me away was our one and only SUNNY BUNNY! she was so personable and genuine and despite being a superstar– so friggin down to earth. can’t wait til the next ep!

looking forward to the next episode kekekekekke its was fun watching it in the middle of the show ^_^ thanks for posting
I found it pretty amusing. Gotta love Seohyun–she’s so principled and disciplined and you KNOW she just can’t relate to kids who seem aimless and without any ambition. It’ll be a real eye-opening experience to her. But I love Seohyun for how she is, because I was like her growing up.
I’m willing to go astray if SNSD is willing to mentor me.
I love Sooyoung’s english!
Yoona and Hyoyeon are really relaxed haha.. They picked the right boy
Very little of Sunny in this ep~
Seohyun was mostly talking to Taeyeon IMO
lol most of these kids would be considered normal in the States. I love how serious Seohyun is throughout the entire process and seemed shock at every little rude action or comment from the boys. The others do seem to find the boys image to be misbehaved kids, but Seohyun seem to jump a little for every bad action by the “dangerous boys.” Although Seohyun is the best student role model from the girl group, she.might not be the best influence for the boys. I think there would be a major gap in understanding and appreciation between her and the boys. Out of all the girls, the best mentor might be Hyoyeon because of her honest demeanor and understanding of playing a role that is not comfortable for her. All the boys seem wanting to find a place to belong due to their situations. Hyoyeon would be able to connect well with most of them since she is like the tomboy in the cutesy girl’s generation. (not saying Hyoyeon is not cute because tomboys are very cute.)
