Soshi are standing tall in Japan for Christmas

November 30, 2010

As we briefly mentioned yesterday, a huge image of SNSD was put up on a cylindrical-shape shopping mall in Shibuya, Tokyo’s shopping haven.

As the Christmas season is just around the corner, SNSD and ‘SHIBUYA 109‘ joined hands to present a Christmas collaboration entitled “109 Girls’ Generation Xmas“. SNSD appeared as the models for the large illumination image decorating the facade of the cylindrical building. From November 30th to December 25th (about a month), the girls’ large image with colorful background would be up for display.

To light up the mood for this coming Christmas season, SNSD adopted the ‘Line Dance‘ concept, showcasing their charm, fashion sense and stylishness. AS SNSD‘s songs, dance and fashion are hot topics in Japan, the Christmas collaboration between SNSD and ‘SHIBUYA 109‘ would definitely catch the attention of citizens in Tokyo’s shopping haven, especially female fans who aspire to be a star.

From the translation of a Japanese article, here’s what the girls have to say about the collaboration:

We, SNSD (Girls’ Generation), appear on the “SHIBUY109″‘s cylinder which represents a symbol of Shibuya and girls’ fashion.

We are really happy because Shibuya is our favorite town where we often go shopping!

I find some mysterious(?) coincidence in this collabo with “09″ (pronounced as “maru kyu” in Japanese), because the number of our members is also nine.

Wishing you a joyful and gorgeous Christmas, we paid a particular care for fashion and filmed along with the “line dance” concept.

Come to see us here!
We wish you a Merry Christmas!


“Right Now, Psy’s Generation”

November 29, 2010

Psy is one happy man!

The man who was enlisted twice in the army is well known for his unique and energetic stage performance. On SBS Inkigayo aired on November 28th, his performance was even more special, with the support of 8 pretty angels, doing the arrow dance at the end of his performance, “Right Now”.

After his performance, Psy updated his me2day with a new post entitled, “므..훗!!! ( ̄▽ ̄)” and attached a group photo of himself and SNSD members.

Psy’s adoration for SNSD is not something new. Once, he was asked about his favorite girlgroup while he was serving in the army. Psy replied, “SNSD is a religion in the army”. He also mentioned that Yuri is his favorite member in SNSD.

With that photo, Psy could go around and boast “Jigeumun Psyshidae!”
