Girls’ Generation-TTS chose Hyoyeon as the member whom they like to carry out their activities with.

On MBC ‘Beautiful Concert’ aired on May 22nd, Girls’ Generation-TTS performed ‘Twinkle’ and ‘Baby Steps’ and showed their wits in replying to questions directed at them by the MC.

In reply to MC of the show, Hong KyungMin’s question, “What was the reason for forming a unit consisting of 3 members out of the 9 members in Girls’ Generation?”, Taeyeon said, “The other members have their own acting activities. The three of us wanted to put more focus on music.”

After that Hong KyungMin asked, “If TaeTiSeo were to recruit one person into the unit, who would it be?”. Seohyun replied, “Probably it’s Hyoyeon. I think it will be great as Hyoyeon will be dancing while the three of us are singing.”

Tiffany added, “As Hyoyeon is participating in MBC ‘Dancing With The Stars 2′ recently, I think her Rumba dance would go well with our music”, expressing her admiration towards Hyoyeon’s dancing skill.

Girls’ Generation-TTS, who is currently promoting as a unit group, is enjoying huge success by topping various music programs – MBC Music Show Champion (Champion Song for 3 consecutive weeks), Mnet M!Countdown (no.1 for 2 consecutive weeks), KBS Music Bank K-Chart (no.1 for 2 consecutive weeks) and SBS Inkigayo (Mutizen Song for 2 consecutive weeks).

During the interview that took place after the photoshoot, Sooyoung talked about her first drama experience in tvN’s ‘The 3rd Hospital’. She revealed her anxiety and said, “My role Eu Jin does a lot of aegyo, but I’m a woman without any aegyo so it’s a difficulty to me.” She further explained, “Girls’ Generation members have no aegyo towards men, that’s why I can’t learn from them.” When asked about her life being a Girls’ Generation member, she said, “Thanks to members, my life is successful.

Happy SUNNY Day!

May 14, 2012

It’s 515 again! The bright SUNNY day has arrived. 23 years ago today, a cute and talented girl named Lee SoonKyu was born. Like her stage name, she is the sunshine and the energy pill to everyone around her and because of her, everyday is a sunny day in our hearts regardless of where we are and how the weather changes.

Whether it’s calling for punches or collar grabs, no one could resist her heart-melting excessive aegyo and her brighter-than-the-sun smiles. What makes her even cuter is her shy personality in real life. Deep within the playful girl that she is, Sunny has shown great maturity and determination in everything she does. Don’t mess up with this girl though. Maknae Seohyun once warned that her Sunny unnie looks scary when she’s angry.

Although small in stature, do not underestimate this cheerful girl as things that she can do and achieve would definitely wow you big time. Through KBS 2TV ‘Invincible Youth’ particularly, her variety talent and skills are well-acknowledged. Among the G8 members who were cast in season 1, Sunny is the only member to appear in the second season of the variety program. To fans, viewers and PD alike, Sunny’s contribution and experience to the program is hugely significant.

From catching chicken and fish to MC-ing for MTV Music Island, Sunny continues to impress through something she has never done before, a musical appearance. Alternating her role as Nurse Brenda in the musical ‘Catch Me If You Can’ with CSJH The Grace’s Dana and Choi WooRi, Sunny has once again proved that nothing could stop her from being an all-rounder. Even before her musical ended on May 12th, Sunny was nominated for ‘The Best Female Newcomer Award’ at ‘The 6th Musical Award’ for her role as Brenda in ‘Catch Me If You Can’. We hope that our Aegyo Queen would take home the award as it will definitely serves as an encouragement for her to advance further in the musical field.

Like other Girls’ Generation members such as YoonA, Jessica, Yuri and Sooyoung, it would be nice to see Sunny in a drama as well. As there is nothing this girl cannot do, We are pretty sure that she will pull it off excellently. Sunny’s energy, confidence, perseverance, hardwork and level of maturity on top of her irresistible aegyo have been the source of inspiration to all, not only her fellow Soshi sisters and SONEs. Therefore, It does not come as a surprise that SoonKyu is receiving lots of love and respect from everyone she has been working with. would like to take this opportunity to wish our beloved Lee SoonKyu a happy and blessed 23rd birthday. May all your dreams and wishes come true always. Thank you for being such an inspiration and also for your unconditional love towards SONEs. We love you too.

Happy 썬탄절 everyone!
