Jung Hyung Don had to do “husband test” in SNSD’s dorm

The first episode with the new couple Jung Hyung Don and So Nyuh Shi Dae’s Kim Taeyeon on MBC’s “Sunday Sunday Night”’s popular show “We Got Married” will be revealed soon.

After Jung Hyung Don got his mission to go and find his new bride, he was been taken to the SNSD dorm to successfully complete his mission.

At first, Jung Hyung Don didn’t know his bride would be much younger than him but then he realized it after he had arrived at SNSD’s dorm and all 8 members welcomed him. When he knew that his bride would be a SNSD member, he was embarrassed and his face got red.

SNSD and Jung Hyung Don spend the whole day together. Jung Hyung Don’s mission was to find his new bride among the members but the SNSD members wanted to test him first – to see if he would be a good husband or not.

Jung Hyung Don wanted to show that he wasn’t lazy or selfish in the past – but in the end, he got tired of SNSD’s “husband test” and broke down.

Although he spent the whole day searching for his new bride, he didn’t notice her and thus disappointed the staff with his behaviour.

After revealing his bride, they had to choose whether they wanted the marriage or not.

Jung Hyung Don’s and SNSD’s Taeyeon’s first episode will be broadcasted on the 25th, at 6 pm in the “WGM New Year Special”.

Popular Girl group SNSD’s KBS 2TV “Music Bank” appearance has been cancelled.

SNSD was supposed to appear in the live KBS 2TV music program “Music Bank” on the 16th. However, just like what happened on the 9th, SNSD won’t be able to appear on “Music Bank”

KBS 2TV “Music Bank”’s staff informed Moneytoday StarNews that “As per KBS’s rules, it will be hard to see SNSD on Music Bank for a while.”

Rumors rose up that other SM Entertainment artists will have a hard time appearing on “Music Bank” as well due to arguments concerning the last year’s December 30th “2008 KBS Gayo Celebration”

After SNSD didn’t appear on the 9th, however, both sides (SM Ent. and MuBank) said that there are no hard feelings and that “SNSD delayed their stage on MuBank to prepare so they can have a better performance on the 16th.”

In reality, SM artist SHINee appeared on MuBank on the 2nd and the 9th, thus proving the hard feeling between SM and KBS wrong.

But since SNSD’s appearance was cancelled for two weeks, many in the music industry are saying that KBS still has hard feelings against SM for not letting some of their artists perform in the “2008 KBS Gayo Celebration” and is therefore not letting SNSD perform on MuBank for a while.

“I recently visited the U.S. to see my parents but I was surprised by the mood there. It really seems like our economy isn’t good. It doesn’t feel like the new year and people look very tired. For those of you going to work and studying for exams, listen to our song and cheer up!” (Tiffany)

SNSD recently made a comeback with their song “Himnae (Way to Go)” to give strength to those who need it. On the thirteenth when I met SNSD, they said, “Long time no see!” and laughed. It’s been nine months since I saw the nine girls have been together. Yoona, who has been acting in the drama You Are My Destiny, which topped of a view of 40%, Taeyeon, who has worked on the OST for the drama Beethoven Virus and aired for the radio, and Sooyoung who has been working on her movie, have all been busy during the time.

Coming back with their mini-album Gee, they say that “through this long time of hard work, they will be performing for a while”. The fans are also on fire. After the album release, the internet has brought SNSD to the top and their dances on broadcasting television has also brought tons of excitement.

Most of the fans seem to be many males aging from 20 to 30. They attend SNSD’s concerts even while going to work.

“I like how they think very cutely of us. That’s why I think it’s not necessary for us to go through some sexy makeover. Just as we don’t want any scandals we like this teenage image we have.” (Sooyoung)

Although it seems hard to all live together, Jessica thinks that “because we know each other well and care for each other” they “cry with each other and sometimes go out to the sea for air or go to the movies together”.

Tiffany said, “Although it looks like we get jealous of the members that get successful, we always encourage each other.” She thinks that because of the long time that they’ve been together, the way they talk is almost the same as well.

They looked proud coming back in their tight skinny jeans with a white t-shirt.

Sooyoung and Yoona are still looking ahead towards college, and Seohyun, the only 19 year old left, is surpassed by all the other members in their 20s. We asked them about how they felt of their age.

“SNSD’s dream is my dream. I hope SNSD will be able to spread throughout the world.” (Taeyeon)

“I hope this year will be successful. If I can, I also want to continue acting.” (Yoona)

“Although everyone makes mistakes, I don’t want to turn back and look at my 20s and see things I’ll regret.” (Jessica)

“I want to become the top dancer who’s learned dancing from foreign countries. Same with singing. I’m very greedy aren’t I?” (Hyoyeon)

“I want the people who’ve grown up watching us to say in ten years that they want to live like us!” (Yuri)

“I want to experience the world and live hard. I also want to know how to get over mistakes and errors as well.” (Sunny)

“Even though there was a 1st there was no 1st”

Within 9 days of their comeback, So Nyuh Shi Dae reached the top of Music Bank.

So Nyuh Shi Dae’s mini album title song “Gee” took first on Music Bank’s K-chart which is aired live on KBS 2TV on the 16th. Their rise to the top of public program charts within 10 days of coming back showed off their immense amount of popularity they are garnering.

But So Nyuh Shi Dae was not present at the concert. For 2 weeks straight, So Nyuh Shi Dae has been unable to attend Music Bank and has even become the center of controversy. Although the broadcasting co. and SM Ent. are not disclosing much information, associates are saying that the reason for the no shows is due to bad feelings between the two.

There has been much disappoinment because So Nyuh Shi Dae – which has been taking the music scene by storm in 2009 – is stuck in the middle of this. Because of this unnecessary conflict, So Nyuh Shi Dae along with their fans have been unable to attend. It is a time where we all wish there is some compromise between the broadcasting co. and SM.

So Nyuh Shi Dae was originally planning on making their Music Bank comeback on the 9th, but fans had become suspicious with the sudden cancelling of that plan. From then on, many people have begun to predict that the reason was due to disagreements between KBS and SM Entertainment.

There had been positive talk by SM associates about So Nyuh Shi Dae performing at Music Bank on the 16th, but once again, the performance has been cancelled.

In response to this KBS people stated that, “So Nyuh Shi Dae is unable to perform due to undisclosed reasons.” People are beginning to say, “that it will be hard to see So Nyuh Shi Dae come out in Music Bank for a whole.”

So Nyeo Shi Dae has rose up to their 1st #1 spot on KBS Music Bank.

But after 2 weeks, still no comeback stages from the girls on the show, proving discord rumours right.

Their comeback song ‘Gee’ was at #1 position on the KChart on the show aired on 16th January, beating Baek Ji Young’s ‘Like Being hit’ and K Will’s ‘Love 119′.

But what was a shame was that So Nyeo Shi Dae did not perform on the show. It was followed up on 16th January that their appearance on the show has been cancelled as they “won’t be able to perform on Music Bank”.

A Music Bank representative said, “Following KBS’ rules, it will be hard to see So Nyeo Shi Dae on Music Bank for a while.”

Rumors have it that SM Entertainment artistes will have a hard time appearing on Music Bank too. This was said to be due to the incident relating to 2008 KBS Gayo DaeJeon on 30th December, that SM Entertainment had not allowed its artistes to perfom on it.

But both sides have denied any discord between them. SHINee appeared on Music Bank on 2nd and 9th January to prove any rumours of discord wrong.

It is rarely the case that we see So Nyeo Shi Dae missing their comeback for 2 weeks, perhaps the rumours are indeed true.

Meanwhile, the girls are having a strong comeback with catchy song ‘Gee’ and its cute ‘crab leg’ and ‘perfume’ dance.

Wonder Girls – Girls’ Generation – Kara, The Factors Behind Their Popularity?

Leading of the rush of idol girl-groups, the Wonder Girls, Girls’ Generation (SNSD), and Kara, have each honestly revealed the contributing factors to their popularity.

Rising up as ‘National Little Sisters’ after their consecutive hits , , and , the Wonder Girls noted their ‘5 person, 5 colors’ individuality as the leading factor in their popularity. The member’s distinctive personalities are appealing because they correspond to the varying tastes of fans.

The Wonder Girls stated, “If you look at the fans, it seems as though they like one member while disliking four out of five of us. It’s because all five of us have different personalities.”

Moreover, they used anime metaphors to explain, “If you look at ‘Sailor Moon,’ isn’t there always one character you prefer among Sailor Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, and Venus? Looking at ‘Wedding Peach’ too, you’re bound to like one character more out of Peach, Lily, Daisy. ”

In addition to their ‘5 person, 5 colors’, the Wonder Girls also picked their ‘Non-celebrity-like familiarity’ as their personal charm.

Girls’ Generation, who returned after nine months to sweep both the on and off-line music charts with their comeback, pointed to their bright and wholesome charm as the primary factor in their popularity.

Girls’ Generation offered a rather mature analysis, stating, “It seems like people like the image of girls who look like they’re running around laughing in a thick meadow.” Fans feel happier and gain strength from seeing the members’ individual colors on top of this wholesome and lively charm.

“It’s most impressive when fans say they gained strength during tough times after seeing a Girls’ Generation clip,” stated Girls’ Generation. “They seem to see the bright side out of seeing us genuinely enjoy the work we do.”

On the other hand, Kara, who is quickly coming up with the release of their second mini-album and the title song , selected their ‘team’s quality for looking natural and lively rather than doll-like prettiness’ as a factor in their popularity.

Kara’s hopes for the future were also revealed. “After undergoing a change in members, we increased our recognition with our first mini-album . Now with it seems like we’ve found our own color. We want to be remembered for being natural and lively while being comfortable and easy-going.”

The colors they’ve recently shown on broadcast TV stem from their desire to be seen not as an idol group but as comfortable and easy-going.

The Wonder Girls’ distinct personalities, Girls’ Generation’s bright and wholesome charm, and comfortable and natural Kara—the fascinating battle between the ‘3 shades of charm’ will continue to draw the attention of fans.

SNSD, who has changed from inexperienced girls to girls growing slightly into womanhood, has started their group activities on the 7th with their mini-album ‘Gee’. The interest in them was reflected as soon as they had their comeback as they swept all the online and offline charts, showing their popularity.

“We are happy that the response has been positive, as we prepared really hard. Since in our debut we could only show our cute side, this time we want to show a different image. We put all our efforts to give our fans a more comfortable and familiar side.” (Taeyeon)

Made by E-TRIBE, author of Lee hyori’s U-Go-Girl, the title song, “Gee”, is a fast and lively dance song about the cute circumstances of a girl in love for the first time.

In the mini-album we can find 5 different songs, each one with their own color and style. ‘Way to Go” is a punk-rock song with a cheerful meaning. ‘Dear Mom” is a pop-ballad song about the feelings of a daughter towards her mother.

“We wanted to return with a perfect album. Unfortunately it took more time than expected. I think that through these five songs we are able to show you a diversity of colors and genres. Music that give a SNSD vibe, just like our songs.” (Tiffany)

“I cried while singing ‘Dear Mom’. I started thinking about my mom, who worries and takes care me. Thinking about those times when I couldn’t talk properly to her because of my busy schedule, I felt really sorry. Not only us, but daughters all over the world would feel the same.” (Sunny)

Last April SNSD stopped their group performances and started their individual activities. Taeyeon was active as a solo singer and as a DJ, and Yoona met the audience as an actress. Last fall, all members worked as fashion magazine editors in the cable channel Mnet reality show ‘Factory Girl’. At that time, the girls were really excited to be chosen. Sooyoung ,who has a lot of interest in fashion, worked specially hard.

“Really, if I didn’t turn into a singer this would be the kind of job I would want to do. I was really happy to have the chance to experience it.” (Sooyoung)

“The pages we edited as ‘Elle Girls’ were actually published. As a result, we developed a strong sense of responsibility.” (Sunny)

The members’ experience as intern editors was shown in their new album. With colorful skinny jeans and body-fitting t-shirts, this fresh image is becoming a trend with people in their late teens and early twenties. This style was the result of all members’ opinions and ideas.

“We saw many fashion shows while working as fashion magazine editors. Therefore we had the chance to see the items that would become popular the next season. It seemed that many people were using clothes with a simple style. This album is inspired by the many ideas we learned while working there.”(Tiffany)

It’s been so long since we performed as a group, and everyone is overflowing with energy. Without doubt, our plan this year is to perform all year together.”After the promotions for this album ends, we have plans for another mini-album. This year all members are going to be together. During the long wait for our comeback we learned the importance of being together in the same stage. Please look forward to our performance.” (SNSD)

“All they did was wear white tee with jeans…”
SNSD is taking over 2009’s early music industry as well as fashion.

SNSD, who cameback with their new mini album ‘Gee’, is becoming a trendsetter. SNSD’s clothing, skinny jeans and white t-shirts are on the rise in the fashion industry.

Recently, skinny jeans is the trend in fashion. It is on the rise again similar to the rise that ‘leggings’ had last year.

Also, the clothes that SNSD members wore in the album jacket and comeback stage are receiving a lot of attention. Last year, SNSD got a lot of attention with the school look. Now, they are showing a mature side with white t-shirt and jeans.

Also, SNSD’s “crab-leg dance” is famous. Some others are mistaking it for “dog-leg dance” because of the mis-pronounciation.

The title song “Gee” is already at the top. The english exclamation “Gee” is a R&B pop dance song made by E-Tribe who made Lee Hyori’s “U-Go-Girl.” “Gee”’s music video recorded over 1 million views after one day, and topped all offline charts and is taking over the entire music industry.
