September 28, 2010


After having a great time with their families during the Chuseok holidays, the girls are flying over to Japan again soon.

On September 28th, a representative of SM Entertainment told Money Today Star News, “SNSD members
are now in Korea. They will be leaving for Japan in early October.”

For the Chuseok Holidays, the girls were back in Korea and after about 10 days’ rest, they will be preparing for their activities in Japan again.

The representative added, “SNSD went to Japan earlier this month for the promotional activities of their debut
single “Genie” and this time, they will be promoting their second single “Gee” which will be released on October 20th. Prior to the release of “Gee”, the girls will be traveling back and forth to Korea and Japan in order to fulfill their schedule.”

Looks like the girls will be having a hectic schedule ahead of them again in October. On top of their activities in Japan and Korea, the girls will be having the Into The New World Concert in Taiwan on October 16th and 17th, followed by the Korean Pop Night Concert 2010 in Singapore on October 23rd. We hope that the girls are taking enough rest while they’re in Korea now.

When members are chatting Yuri suddenly says “You guys are too lovable to me~ You want me to be there with some rice cakes?”
Yuri after WGM last Saturday: “Unnie made Kimchee pancakes while watching you on the show~” and takes pic of the kimchee pancakes and sends it to Seohyun

Seohyun is jealous of Yonghwa and Ueno?

September 25, 2010


On MBC’s “We Got Married” aired on September 26th, Seohyun put on a smiling face during the meet-up with Juri Ueno but she might be feeling otherwise inside. After Ueno left, the ‘mildang (a push-pull/’playing games’ situation for two persons interested in each other)’ started.

Yonghwa committed a serious mistake when she taught Ueno the word “Oppa”. Although Yonghwa did it jokingly, Seohyun gave him a cold stare. However, she still put on a smiling face. The couple and Juri Ueno then had a nice conversation while enjoying the meals prepared by Seohyun. Yonghwa taught Ueno some Korean greetings and words such as “daebak”, “massisseoyo”, etc.

The ‘cold’ atmosphere subsided. Yonghwa then suggested that Ueno and him should take a photo for remembrance and he asked Seohyun to take the photos of them together. There was awkwardness in Seohyun’s expressions but still, she did not show any sign of anger. The photos taken by Seohyun were blurry. The MCs thought that Seohyun must have done it on purpose because of her jealousy towards Yonghwa and Ueno.

After Ueno left, Seohyun said, “She’s your ideal woman. It was great, right?” Yonghwa replied calmly, “Yes, she’s my ideal type. It was just perfect. Are you jealous?”  Seohyun replied, “No. I’m not. I’m not like SOMEONE.” So, the ‘mildang’ between the couple started.

Yonghwa launched a counter-attack by saying, “I’m sorry,  Seohyun. You must be missing Tamaki Hiroshi (her ideal man).” Seohyun replied, “So….” and then requested to meet up with him. Yonghwa then added, “Meet Johnny Depp (another ideal man of hers) and cook some steaks together.”

On the show, the couple also talked about their birthdays which are only 6 days apart (Seohyun’s is on June 28th while Yonghwa’s is on June 22nd). To commemorate their birthdays, Yonghwa suggested that they should go for an outing.

Is Seohyun starting to feel something for Yonghwa? Make sure you catch the upcoming episodes of “We Got Married”

September 24, 2010


The main theme for MBC’s Chuseok Special Program “Feel-Good Day” aired on September 24th, was “Korean idol is conquering the world”and the did at the SM Town Live 10 World Tour Concert in LA and Shanghai.

After a successful performance in LA, SM Town artists heated up the stage in Shanghai on September 11th. On this program, we get to see some funny and exciting footages of our girls.


Hyoyeon, Sunny and YoonA were seen sitting in the waiting room enjoying a delicious meal. Hyoyeon said, “Eating makes us happy. I’m worried that my tummy would bulge out before i go onto the stage but I need to eat as it gives me the  energy to perform.”

A production staff then asked, “There will also be a meal after performing?”. To this, Hyoyeon answered “yes” with a funny expression. Sunny and YoonA also put aside their worries (for their bodies) and enjoy the sumptuous meal.
