SNSDs comeback on Inkigayo

SNSD are back on SBS Inkigayo, wearing stripe top and black leather hot pants (Show Show Show) and pink jackets and boots (Oh!). I guess everyone’s satisfied with today’s show as there’s no black screen throughout the performance. Yesterday on Music Core, some netizens commented that Sunny’s voice was a bit too cute but today, I guess her cuteness was just nice. i did not see any bandage on Yuri’s right knee today :) . I love Sone’s chants at the end. It was really loud and clear. Good job, fellow Sones! One thing that caught my attention was the cheer for Sooyoung was really loud. You can hear them scream when Sooyoung sang her parts. Anyway, here’s SNSD’s performance on Inkigayo today. Enjoy!!!

SNSD's powerful comeback on Music Core with Oh! and Show Show Show

SNSD's comeback stage on Music Core

SNSD basically set Music Core on fire with Show Show Show, followed by Oh! The atmosphere was great with Sones chanting to Oh! MC Yuri and MC Tiffany kept teasing the viewers with Oh! since the beginning of the show. We all know that Yuri injured her knew while filming ‘Invincible Youth’ and the bandage on her right knee can be clearly seen. However, I thought it blended quite well with the blue cheerleader outfit. I was quite worried for Yuri when I saw her jumping at the end of the performance, as she did in the MV. It must be really painful to jump like that with an injured knee. Sunny’s voice in the beginning was really cute…lol. Overall, I really love their performance on Music Core today and the head mics didn’t affect their singing at all. I was so pissed in the end when the screen just went blank but things like this happen sometimes.

Update 1:

The blank screen today might not be an accident afterall. It’s the attack of the dark soshis.

What happened in MBC about blank screen? Actually it was Dark Soshi who turned the power off. Believe it or not…

…and there’s more. Apparently, there’s an error free vid of today’s Oh! performance at Music Core.

MuCore #SNSD Oh! error-free video is up. But you gotta be a member at MBC website :(

I guess the no-blank-screen vid is this one!

Ticket Prices: Purple (480 RMB), Blue (680 RMB), Orange (880 RMB) and Green (1280 RMB)

Wow…look at the ticket prices! It’s ranging from US$69 to US$183 but I don’t mind spending that money if I were in Shanghai though because I know seeing SNSD’s live performance is a priceless experience. Obviously, those who are seating in the green seats have the chance to look at the girls up close. Who knows, they may even have the chance to shake hands with Soshis…lol.

After 2 days, Oh! is currently #1 on Melon, Bugs!, Mnet, Dosirak and Soribada! Netizens have different comments on the song but I love it and I play like maybe 50 times a day…lol. Anyway, the MV was released earlier today and I had a good laugh watching the MV. It was really cute and funny. By the way, the numbers on their shirts are their favorite numbers.The girls appeared in leather outfit with dark make-up in the end which sparked curiosity among netizens. SM Entertainment confirmed that it’s a teaser of a follow-up track that has yet to be released. Another hot hit track, perhaps? Anyway, I’ll leave it to your imagination. Enjoy!!!

10 minutes is all it takes for SNSD’s ‘Oh!’ to grabbed the #1 spot on online music chart, Monkey3. I have been playing ‘Oh!’ repeatedly (I lost count on the no. of times and it’s still playing as I’m typing now) and yes! it will be the song of the year. The chorus “Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! man i man i” is contagious! Due to the explosive comeback, there are always some jealous people who are always there to spoil the party. Who cares? We’re partying with ‘Oh!’ and to those jealous people out there, well, get a life! I couldn’t help but to check the online music charts such as Melon, Bugs!, Mnet, Soribada, etc as soon as i got off from work and WOW! ‘Oh!’ is now 4th on Bugs!. Hopefully, it will get into the other charts as well. I will keep clicking on the refresh button every hour to check on the progress…hee hee. My CD will arrive on the 4th of February, so, I’m really excited about the rest of the tracks in the album. For those who has not pre-order the album, you MUST do so, otherwise you’ll regret it! Every SNSD albums are really precious to me. Not only it has lots of pretty photos in there, it also makes you feel as if you’re buying more than just a CD. It’s like a collection kind of thing.

Sun Mi quits WG to focus on her studies

This is really shocking! I’m lost for words again but for a different reason this time. i never thought that this would happen to Wonder Girls at the time when they are doing so well in US. This is a sad news for Mimi’s fans but let’s continue to show our love and support to 4-D and hope everything goes well for her. Hope WonderFuls will give as much love and support to the new member, 17 year-old Lim who will be joining the Wonder Girls in March. This is JYP Entertainment’s official statement:

JYP Entertainment has announced that Mimi from the Wonder Girls has decided
to postpone her musical career to pursue an academic career.

Mimi, the rest of the Wonder Girls members, her family, and JYP Entertainment
have collectively decided to postpone her musical career for the time being.

JYP Entertainment said, “Mimi had a truly memorable, once in a lifetime
experience while living in the U.S. and touring over 50 cities. We support her
decision to pursue an academic career at this time. We will also support Mimi if
she chooses to return to singing after her academics are complete. In the
meantime, she plans to frequent JYP facilities and continue her dance and vocal

Mimi will remain with the Wonder Girls in the U.S., continuing with any scheduled
performances and activities until the end of February. As of March, she will return
to Korea and prepare to focus on her studies. JYP has named 17 year old Lim as
the newest member to the quintet. Lim has gone through extensive training at the
JYP Academy for three years and is fluent in four languages: English, Korean,
Mandarin and Cantonese.
