With Girls’ Generation’s 10th anniversary approaching, the feels really hit you. To say they’ve come so far since their debut days is an understatement. I remember during high school when I first started stanning our girls, people around me would say they won’t be big and they’ll disband soon because of the ‘5 year idol group curse’. The girls proved haters wrong and have become an undisputed legend in the music industry with their longevity and success. Being the first girl group to bring massive success in an era that was dominated by males, dominating album sales and chart rankings both nationally and worldwide, setting a record with 9 consecutive wins with “Gee”, being the only girl group to win the prestigious Daesung award 3 times in a row, appearing on popular American TV Talk Shows—The Late Show with David Letterman and Live! With Kelly, turning heads when they won “Video of the Year” Youtube Awards in 2013, and not to mention ranking 4th on the list of “The Highest Grossing Girl Group Concert Tours of All Time” after TLC, Destiny’s Child, and Spice Girls.
As one of the most watched and shared videos on Youtube this year, “I Got a Boy” has been nominated for ‘Video of the Year’ at the YouTube Music Awards. This is petty cool since IGAB is running up against music videos of top stars like One Direction, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, etc.
The winner(s) will be announced on November 3 so help VOTE now! You can vote by sharing the video directly from the youtube page [so from this actual post, you have to click on the video to link you to the youtube page or click here.

MNet’s twitter sub-account (@Mnet_Dancing9) dedicated to providing updates, news and content on their new dance survival show ‘Dancing 9‘ recently released a short BTS video of our cute and bubbly mushroom on the studio set, giving support to Hyoyeon and impliedly, Yuri as well.
If you haven’t had your daily dose of Tiffany’s smile, here’s your chance now!
Tip: Play it in HD.
The leader-maknae duo Taeyeon & Seohyun have both reprised their roles as Margot and Edith, respectively, in the to-be-released Korean version of Despicable Me 2 (the Korean title is Superbad 2). A short video was recently released of the two members doing the voice-acting for the animated characters and asking fans to look forward to the film.
Ain’t that just the darned cutest thing? *~*
Recently, Taeyeon, Tiffany and Sunny headed to L.A as invitees to the L.A Dodgers vs Cincinnati Reds game. As a celebration of Korea Day, Taeyeon performed the Korean national anthem, “”Aegukga (Patriotic Song/Song of Patriotism)” while Tiffany sang the American national anthem, “Star-Spangled Banner“. The opening pitch of the game was thrown by Sunny.
Sunny’s pitch has received a thumbs up from fans (because any pitch is better than a JeTi pitch) while Taeyeon and Tiffany both received praise for the performances, with Korean netizens noting how well they did. The event has been one of high public interest; when it was announced the three girls would be in L.A singing the national anthem earlier this month, the search phrase “Taeyeon Tiffany Sunny L.A Dodgers” became the number one most searched in a matter of hours on popular korean portal Naver.
Tiffany’s epic fan-service (she’s so nice TT__TT):
snsdkorean has been a little dead for the last two weeks (sorry! >.<), but a heavenly angel by the name of Tiffany Hwang has resurrected us with the sheer power of her beauty! Our regular updates will resume starting now with the BTS videos and video-cover from Tiffany’s recent photoshoot with CeCi magazine, enjoy!
PS, the song in the first video is “Sunshine Avenue” by Moth & The Flame
In order to promote their upcoming show, Dancing9, M.Net’s youtube channel has been releasing videos showing the reactions of Hyoyeon and Yuri to some of the performances on the show. This one, released a couple days ago, took fans by surprise as it shows Yuri becoming emotional while watching contestants dance.
Damn onions… T_T
SM’s newest solo act, Henry, whom you might also remember as one of the M-members of Super Junior, has collaborated with genius Seohyun to perform a special duet of his song, “Trap“. Like Seohyun, Henry can play the piano, violin and guitar, and has been learning instruments from a young age. The two are definitely super talented and the duet is really beautiful to listen to.
Everybody go thumb it up and watch it 100 times so that SM knows we like it and gives us more! WHY AREN’T INSTRUMENTAL PERFORMANCES A REGULAR THING??
