Breaking news ! It seems the rumours circulating around actually has a grain of truth to it ;). SM Entertainment has officially announced the formation of the first Soshi sub-unit, comprising of one of our favourite “Royal Family” pairings (if you are a shipper, that is 😀 ), the Kims (i.e. Taeyeon, Tiffany and Seohyun), on the 19th of April 2012.
Officially called TaeTiSeo, this sub-group is already hard at work, their first mini-album release being scheduled for the 2nd of May 2012. Entitled “Twinkle”, it will feature songs by these 3 lovely ladies from SNSD, which are both attractive and easy on the ears :).
An official statement by SM Entertainment on the matter of the Soshi sub-unit formations states that: “Girls’ Generation’s subunit will feature the various talents of each Girls’ Generation member by changing the members of the unit according to the music and concept of each new subunit album. This subunit will aim to grab the attention of fans with all aspects of music, performance, and fashion styles.”
I don’t know about you, but I personally am looking forward to this new development in the 9 ladies’ professional career, as it will mean that, if in the future, the 9 are no longer officially together, we SONEs will still get to see some of them being active in the K-Pop music scene. SNSD Jjang !

I love Taeyeon, Jessica, and Seohyun, and want to see what they can do as a combo. This should be really exciting. BUT DON’T LET IT END THE POWER OF 9!!!

it says “This subunit will aim to grab the attention of fans with all aspects of music, performance, and fashion styles.” does that mean metalheads? if so cool cause i’m a metalhead
lols, was hoping the same thing :p an other song like devils cry (a full one this time) from Taeyeon would be awesome. :p
based on what was said up there im getting the feeling that twinkle is snsd’s subunit not just taeyeon,tiffany,seohyun im thinking that they are just gonna add 3 or 4 to the Unit when ever they get a cool song and decide who fits it more like later twinkle might be Jessica,sooyoung,sunny who knows that’s just my opinion
i think twinkle is the songs name…

Isn’t it redundant? Girl’s Day already has a song called “Twinkle Twinkle”…
Where the heck is jessica?!?
i believes it not end for snsd… it just for sub-unit, that to me…special project… like other member who have work as actress, musical or variety show… snsd always as 9…
Woot! YEAH! The kim family!!! I like it 😀
I laughed at the name though -_-‘ …….It’ll grow on me.
Amazing.. Kim Royal Family will release an album.. LOL.. Btw, yes, maybe someday these nine girls will not be together officially anymore but it’s scaring just to imagine that. LOL.. I hope they will be together forever..
Well they’re of to a good start with that picture!
4 seems like a better number than 3 (where’s Jessica????). But I hope Girls’ Generation will NEVER separate. SNSD Fighting!!!!!!!!!
i want my jessica 😦
Not really happy abt this sub-unit thing. Don’t know eventhough I liked the pairings…
yeah me too. i don’t know but…HAAAAAH. 😦 I was kinda hoping that if ever they will make a sub-unit, they will separate the lead vocals, but they are in one group. 😀
1st ever sub-unit frm SMent…xD i have high expectations…xD LET’S GO SOSHI LEt’S GO!! *clap clap* LET’S GO SOSHI LEt’S GO!! *clap clap*
they actually have other subunits in superjunior lol
My life is snsd said:
Is this end of snsd ?! 😢😢
this is so sad they should have turned it for a new album or mini ones well the sad part is theres no hyo and sunny 😦
personally i would prefer sunny get a break after her musical stint. shes in invincible youth, music island host and musical.. i would like her to rest though…
And I was thinking they would take Tiffany and Jessica to do an English sub-unit O.O
I’d be in for that. Actually i would love that it will be perfect since the other girls wont have to worry about remembering the english it causes less stress. but if they want to sing in english that’s even better.

I don’t want them to separate !!! 😦
yaa its like suju…
difficult to together on one song
A double edged news.. the Kims are here!! Taenyseo 🙂 But I miss Sica and her voice.. I wonder how the tracks will go.. SoShi hwaiting! 🙂
Michael Sternestedt said:
if they do a little sub unit project that sounds great
but i worry this is the beginning of the end of SNSD though
that will happen anyway one day but not too soon i hope
cant wait anymore.. 2nd May come fast… wana see them promoting again.. its not the end of snsd. SNSD is forever…
im excited for this. i’m happy my seobaby include in the sub-unit, but eventhough it wasn’t, i would still happy too. i like the concept photo, but taeyeon style looks so…weird. sorry. XS too bad that SM chose ‘TaetiSeo’ over ‘TaeNyHyun’ or ‘SeoTaeNy’ huhu… but i’ll go with it 🙂
I love this new sub-unit. Yes, it might take a bit of time to get used to but Girls Generation are not going to break up anytime soon. Just because they have a sub-unit, doesn’t mean the power 9 of nine has been demolished. There are other groups who have a number of sub-units and they’re still together. So don’t worry SONES!!! We support our girls no matter what!
SNSD AND TAETISEO FIGHTING! 😀 😀
woah woah, im excited but sad too because not all of the 9 girls are together… but im still gonna support them ofcourse! go TaenySeo! ❤ according to what SM said there wont just be one sub-unit because its all based on the music and concept they are doing ? i just hope it wont be the end of me seeing them as 9 together they are best with all 9 members, forever power of 9!
Oh my gawd. It’s good. GG Sub-units! 😀
Ownage in K-POP? 😀
Honestly, i’m shocked & feel sad.. that’s like no more “The Power Of 9 ” for me.. what the………
I don’t care who are the members of sub-unit, whenever i read “sub-unit”, those words tighten my chest.. >__<
My 3 best together 😀 it’s paradise 😥 i’m crying of happyness 😀
Didn’t Tiffany said SNSD wasn’t a sub-unit last time? Facepalm
This is pretty epic stuff! 😀
Maybe they will make 2 more units with the reamaning members?
I’m so deeply against the decision SM Entertainment made. I was never a fan of Super Junior’s sub-units. It’s just confusing and unnecessary. For me, it has to be the Power of Nine, Nine Angels. Not a third.
God, I absolutely hate this. It’ll just push back Girls’ Generation’s promotions as a whole. It’ll make the girls more tired considering they’ll be working on the sub-unit and the actual group constantly.
If SM wants to draw in more people, just make a new group. People should accommodate to Girls’ Generation, not vise versa. You don’t like the music they make as a whole? Go listen to another group. What will happen if a certain line-up of a sub-unit gets a lot of attention? (Which I’m sure will happen, our girls are too talented) New fans will be attracted to THAT sub-unit and not GG as a whole, since it won’t be the same musical style.
Something that upsets me intensively as well is how SM can’t just focus on one thing at once. The girls recently made their debut in the US which drew a considerable amount of attention, not as much as I would like, but it did. SM should be focusing on THAT project before launching a new one.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to support my girls regardless of anything since they deserve the success. But it’s just concerning, I’m scared about the direction GG will take.
I’m totally agree with your opinion actually i thought with the promotions they did in America, GG starting a new expansion movement but they all together, this is totally unexpected and it could be a great decision or maybe a total disaster.. We´ll see, but to be honest i don´t like the idea it all..
I totally agreeeeee!!! This is sooo unexpected!!!
Well, we are not the ones holding them right? Imo, I will just support SoShi to my extent, that is the only thing I can do, I do not have any political power in me anyway.
SoShi hwaiting :3

Honestly, I’m quite anxious and nervous with SNSD’s sub group… They’ll be like super junior and I’m scared that they might also end up having a lot of stress and they might be too much exhausted and all worn-out like SuJu 😦 ohhh I hope SM TOWN won’t pressure SNSD too much Huhu my poor SoShi. Let’s all pray guys (: ❤ So Nyuh Shi Dae Hwaiting!!
yaa don’t split them
I’ve been a J-Pop enthusiast before becoming a dedicated Sone, and i’ve seen many Japanese idol Group doing this sub-unit thingy, and i don’t see any failure or false movement in that. Even though we love all nine girls, each and every Sone have their own member bias, and sub unit is a super effective way to draw loyal fans (with specific bias), just like what i.d.m said in the comment above “my 3 best together, its paradise”, and newcomers alike. It’s a common occurrence in Asia Entertainment Industry. And this is nowhere near the end of Girls Generation..trust me…
Also, a sub unit performance are usually done between the promotion of the Main unit, in K-pop, maybe it’s between Goodbye stage and the next Comeback stage. So, isn’t it a good thing to see our girls more frequently? It does mean more job and performance to do, which lead to more training and busy schedule, but Our girls are doing it for us Sone, let’s be grateful for that!
this probably means theyre going to make other sub units with the other members, and if they are I totally dont think they should put 3lead vocalists together, it should be more like 1 vocal and 2 sub vocal so it’ll balance. Unless if this is like super junior kry
Taeyeon is a MAIN vocalist, Fany and Hyun are lead vocalists so its perfect.
I smell troubles with many SONES in the future…
I’m very disappointed. Not in this announcement, but by the reaction of SONEs.
This is not the end. ‘Right now,from now on and forever’, remember? Shouldn’t we support the girls in whatever they do? That’s what fans are for. Don’t get all riled up just because they’re doing something different. I am very excited and can’t wait to see what this trio will produce 😀
Forever it’s Girls’ Generation. Even if they disband, they will always be one in our hearts… SNSD HWAITAENG! Twinkle HWAITAENG!
Yeah, you’re right. Totally agree with you. They’ll always together, forever. SNSD FIGHTING!!!
HERMIONE LOVE said:
Cool! It’s like Super Junior K.R.Y.
yaa,,,, it will make they dificult together on stage
SM have to do this for the girls, for their future. GG cant dance forever, so the girls mush have something to do with their specialty, TaeNyHyun is the top three in singing, Sica i think SM have something too for, but they have to be patient because Sunny still busy because sunny can be her partner…and i dont worry about Sunny future, she is “daebak” she is good in everything. YoonYul in drama and SooYoung will follow to..
but for HyoYeon i still cant see, hope she will found something with variety and MC…
I don’t like it. sub group is not good.
they become popular not together anymore.
maybe it will make soshi apart each other and dificult to be one on stage and their feelings are not the same anymore. maybe one by one member will apart… like ss501 super junior, and afterschool
yeah… it will make sones split too.
they must say. “where is jessica” or “oh sunny not there” or “why just 3″… and bla…bla
I hope what happened in the other group did not occur to them.
Cool. Can’t wait to see this.
Everyone,is just a sub-unit,don t worry that SNSD Will seperate or what,they will never seperate,and also,Just support our girls ,don t worry if Jessica or Sunny is not there,or like.”Huh?why 3 only?”
woah! there are sooo many comments!!! 😀 I don’t even understand their sub-unit thing yet. 😀 I want SNSD to be always performing as 9. But a changed should be good too, I hope. 🙂 I HOPE THIS SUB-UNIT STUFF IS NOT PERMANENT. :((((
“…will feature the various talents of each Girls’ Generation member by changing the members of the unit according to the music and concept of each new subunit album.” – So, is there going to be only ONE sub-unit? And the members of this sub-unit will not be permanent and will change? And is twinkle the name of the song or the sub-unit’s name?
This is so confusing.
The girls’ Wiki page is very updated haha. too many comments from me hahaha 😀

Aa! Great Beauty, Another challenge and another story of SNSD yea ^^ , very nice – look likes the moon shines with a new beautiful light. My Love, your story always remind me to ‘One Piece’ ( J-manga ), a great adventure, 9 the dreams challenger travel through tears and sadness with smile and happiness, together because the different, they sail beyond the cloud & fight together – rise and fall but they won’t lose their dream, the nakama is always #1. Now you half way to the dream, maybe in ‘OP’ you’re at sabaody archipelago this time. One more step to Shinsekai, The New World – global lv. Separates way that must be taken, to gain more experience and discover own self, The sadness and the emptiness because can’t be together with other. Even it is so painful, The tears & heart must not fall and broken, because the promised already made. One day, I know, you’ll sail together again ^^ to the New World – global lv.
Sub-unit help SNSD to mastered their ability and with the rolling system as SM said, the bonuses experience is reach to unknown Lv, maybe one of the family member have a chance unlock her new skills or special ability. Thank to SM, please take good care of Great Beauty and her precious family SNSD.

What a beautiful world. The Dreams – continues through the air and continues to anywhere as long as you’re strong. Turn the ears to the sound inside my heart and listen the song of the wind that blow from the sea of your heart, Please don’t worry My Love, I hear you, I hear your song – your beautiful voice ^^ Great Beauty Fighting! SNSD jjang!
Subunits are normal for any group. It’s not a big deal, some of y’all need to chill. Subunit is no worse or better than a solo song on an OST. So, whatever.
Better question is, what kind of song is it going to be. With these three, a ballad would make sense, but given the appearance of their concept, looks like it’ll be something pop-y or something a touch Gaga or artsy pop style.
is that the end already ? they are not in the same group anymore. they won’t be called girl generation anymore because of that sub-unit method they are using . huhuhuhuhu ;'(((
I really hope that what they said abt switching around the members of the sub unit are true…I wanna see all the girls, not single 3 out and concentrate on those sole 3. I wanna see interaction between the different members. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Kim Family ((: but I don’t wanna leave the rest of the girls out…
It’s so sad to see snsd in sub unit I thought they will always be 9 I thought snsd= beyond 9 they’re cool because of they’re 9 ,I really fell disappointed because of the née
so sad, i think most likely this is beginning of an end for SNSD otherwise, they wouldn’t make this sub-unit…I remember Yoona said she’d like to persue acting after snsd and Jessica said she’d like to give modeling a go. I hope they won’t end so soon, SNSD has only been active for 4-5 years. They could accomplish so much more, stay together girls. Power of 9 for World domination! Hwaiting!
I DONT LIKE THEM…WHERE IS MY JESSICA…..WHEN HER ALBUM WILL COME OUT…I WANT TO HEAR JESSICA VOICE…BUT ONLY HJWAITING FOR TAEYEON.
i think it is all good for now, maybe they are indeed preparing something for the 9 girls like a special album. Let’s just say that this is just their appetizer to get us fans up jumping and at the same time a little worried/excited. I’m sure sunny, jessica and the rest of the group will be joining them after their own respective works are done. Though they may not stall all together in the future i know they will occasionally do some activities together but still as a big fan of these beautiful and talented girls, I really want them to stay as one for ever because they do compliment and at the same time cover the weakness of their other members. I love SNSD for ever hope you guys will stay as one FIGHTING!!!!!!! and I hope I could go to south korea for a month and just tour and watch your concerts!!!! hehehe
I dont like the new sub units
I like to see them perform as a whole
I hope they take away the sub units
