Girls’ Generation 7th Anniversary Donation Drive for the Korea Retinitis Pigmentosa Society (KRPS)

April 13, 2014

August 5th, 2014 will mark an incredible seven-year journey for not only Girls’ Generations but also for the fans, who were with them, regardless of when you have become part of those who will always stand strong besides the girls.

In conjunction with the upcoming Girls’ Generation’s 7th anniversary, a group of SONEs from across multiple countries, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and more, have come together to organize a donation drive for a charity cause that is closely related to the girls.

Throughout the years, the girls have been rained upon with love and gifts from fans everywhere. This year, we would like to call upon your kindness and your charitable hearts to channel some of these money into donations out of goodwill and love for a good cause.

I believe most SONEs are familiar with the organization Korea Retinitis Pigmentosa Society (KRPS), not only because the girls’ were ambassadors for it. Sooyoung’s father is the chairperson of KRPS, who is also unfortunately a victim of this ailment.

KRPS is a charity organization that works to provide retinitis pigmentosa patients with updated medical information, to help and console patients about the disease and to slow its progression. Its assistance range from educating the patients about the disease to funding for medical researches for this field of disease.

In a recent interview in SBS’s ‘Healing Camp’, Sooyoung’s dad wrote a touching letter to his daughter and the rest of the girls. Part of the letter mentioned the help from the girls and SONEs to KRPS.

“To my loving daughter Sooyoung and my 9 pretty daughters,

… I want to share good news with you today. Through the support of your members and the donations of fans overseas, we were able to form a team to help treat blind patients in Korea. To my daughters, be the light and hope to shine onto darkness and ones to pour endlessly to those who aren’t fortunate as Healing Generation. Let’s keep going forever.”

Healing Camp EP 132 – SNSD [2014.03.17] (en) 5/5 by soshisubs

While it is not wrong to send the girls gifts of love from your heart, it would be very meaningful for us to donate to charity to help the less fortunate. If you think that the girls have in one way or another brought light and hope into your lives as they did for mine, let’s do our parts and try to bring this sense of light and hope forward into others’ lives.

A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated because everything counts when it comes to charity. Check out the website for the 7th anniversary donation for details for your respective countries.

Donors are entitled to send in a message for a message book to Girls’ Generation, which will be created and handed to the girls. Do send us your messages of encouragement and love!

Thank you in advance for any contributions. Please do send us any questions that you have at, tweet us at SNSD7th@twitter or check out the website for more information.

The professionalism of the artists performing and dancing powerfully on stage despite the rain received praises and much love from the fans who were also watching faithfully and without falter in the rain, clad mostly in ponchos and raincoats.

In the 4-hour concert extravaganza, members of Girls’ Generation performed a total of 11 songs including collaborations with other artists. The songs they performed during the concert were:

The artists expressed their excitement to be performing in an SMTown concert for the first time in Singapore and they felt that The Float was a really special choice of a venue because of the beautiful view as well as performing on a stage above water.

When asked about the backstage atmosphere, Victoria said that SMTown seniors and juniors mingle and chat in the rare opportunity to hang out together while having fun and they cheer each other on between performances. She also enjoys the last song in the concert, ‘Hope’ where everyone of the SMTown family goes on stage to sing and greet the fans.

Meanwhile, Seohyun was concerned when asked about her opinions of fans who queued up early for the concert. She was grateful for all the fans who turned up for the concert despite not having performed many times in Singapore. As for those who have been waiting for a week, she was really worried about their health because of the rain. With that, she expressed their determination to perform to their very best to repay their fans.

Meanwhile, the SMTown family are currently in Bangkok, Thailand, having left Singapore a day after the concert to perform for the next SMTOWN concert on November 25th.

More photos from the press conference by media will be uploaded soon.
