Well, the 9 ladies of SNSD are certainly approaching the status of achieving true worldwide recognition. Their recent appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” and “Live With Kelly” during the Girls’ visit to the States to promote the international version of “The Boys” album was deemed news worthy enough to be featured in several countries’ television news channels; a credible feat indeed.
Here’s a brief line-up of the various TV news channels that featured this bit of news about our 9 ladies’ foray into the US music scene:
1) Malaysian news channel “NTV7″
2) Ukrainian news channel “News One Channel”
3) French television show “Morandini”
4) Italian entertainment channel “RAI 5″
5) Indonesian network channel “TransTV”
6) Spanish news channel “La Sexta”
(In fact, “La Sexta” even went so far as to feature several clips of the Girls’ performances and interviews in New York, music video clips and even a video clip that documented the 9 ladies’ visit to a Korean army camp. According to netizen mrotaik@twitter, the news clip actually stated that this is the first time that a South Korean pop group has appeared on a Spanish music chart :D).
The future aspirations of our favourite 9 ladies may actually have been unwittingly revealed during their recent interview by Japan’s “TBS News”, who travelled to New York to attend the press conference held by the Girls. Amid a series of questions posed, it was asked what the objectives of the Girls were, to which Tiffany jokingly replied ” World domination. Just kidding.”
Well, jokingly or not, our favourite 9 talented young ladies are slowly, but surely, achieving that dream of world domination in the music scene. SNSD Daebak !

Actually, the spanish notice in La Sexta wasn’t soshi-friendly at all. I’m happy they got featured at all, but it wasn’t a good notice. It’s obvious they think they’re commercial, but I hope we will see better notices of them in the future.
What did it say?
The spanish tv was really mean with the girls. They said THE BOYS song is “more of the same” (nothing special) and obviously they don’t know anything about K-POP, saying that “the girls are all about good looks and dance and nobody cares if they can sing or not”. Although they recongnized the girls’ sucess around the World.
I hope next time they make a better job investigating about the girls and K-POP in general before saying anything, I’m sure there are many angry SONEs in Spain thanks to this news.
that’s exactly what happened when SNSD’s 1st featured on one of news TVs in Indonesia (TVone)…(i think it was more than a year ago, Im not really sure)
“the girls are all about good looks and dance and nobody cares if they can sing or not”
it was the news about their 1st Asian tour… I guess general people tend to judge every pop singers like that, cause people just love stereotypes…it’s easier to accept than you have to dig deeper about who they are..
but the thing matter is our girls become bigger and bigger…we can’t avoid bad words about our girls, no matter how succed they are, no matter how great they are..there’s always people who hates, who loves, who cares, who don’t give a d*mn…n as SONE we just have to love n support our girl in positive ways as much as we can, right? ^.^

“La Sexta” didn’t say anything bad about SNSD AT ALL.
It was definitely good publicity that they were giving them in my opinion. The report was completely honest and factual, they acknowledged all of SNSD’s good traits such as their dancing, beautiful looks, charisma, and congratulated them on their success but let’s face it SNSD is an idol group. The main focus here is IMAGE not necessarily singing power, everyone knows that and all fans of KPOP are aware that idols aren’t necessarily the best singers out there. Anyhow, I’m so proud of the girls and hope that they keep getting more and more publicity!
THEY WERE FEATURED ON TRANS TV?!
Damn, I wish I’d seen that!!!!
keep dreaming …:D
it’s TransTV in Indonesia btw.. not only “Trans” but including TV 🙂
but they translated kelly’s words into something different…
“who hogs the mirror the most?”… became “who’s the most important member?” LOL
SNSD IS THE BEST FOREVER!!!!!
ALWAYS PROUD TO BE SONE!!!! ^_^
There were in a canadien News, but i can’t find it on youtube…
“The Boys” was played at a Dutch television show, last thursday 🙂 I was extremely excited and happy when I heard it
In the Spanish one, can someone tell me what Jess said after “we wish, I we have some……….”?
Wondering the same thing. Did anyone figure this out?
in the spanish news she is talking about how they wished the could have boyfriends… so she they looked at the manager who then responded NO! hahahahah

I’m so proud I could cry…. SNSD JJANG!!!
@Doowdoow WHEN?? Which channel?? Why didn’t I see it??
Wait…So watching the Spanish news, I see that there’s more to that interview where Jessica admits to Sisterly fighting. The girls are separated into two groups… no wonder Jessica did 99% of the talking in the Sisterly fighting video xD
Anyway, anyone have the whole interview?
wow they are doing the impossible i never thought the language barrier could be smashed to bits like this. Truely epic in the utmost epic proportion.
I am a proud Malaysian Sone.. ❤ Even the news reporter spoke highly of them.. XD

Next time, reporters should refer to SONEs for info
Not sure if that would be so great. There are so many who are like ‘ONLY SNSD!’ and I don’t think they would give the best picture of them. Sure, they could ask SONEs about some things, but remember, a journalist also likes to find something less good about them. They doesn’t only write good things about politicians, right? There is always some critique too.
Hey,they appeared in the Brazilian tv too…..I’m so proud!
Just watched La Sexta video, I believe they don’t like current “western pop” coz is boring, vulgar, its all about gangs, nudity, sex and drugs, so they felt the same when they watched The Boys – US/KR version, more of the same western pop. Anyway I’d love they keep making new songs using their own korean language, fan base is big and keep growing.
I just hope SM wont make the girls show more “meat” just to keep earning good money in America.
yeah i don’t want SM to cross that line between sexy and skanky either. It’ll be a real turn-off if that happens 😦
amazing SNSD !!!! keep on spirit Lady’s
When they get more famous along with more fans, I can finally say “Pshhh, I was their fan before they got famous.”
Aren’t they already? 😉
