Get ready to celebrate your brand new year with Girls’ Generation!
The girls will be making a comeback very soon with their fourth album ‘I Got A Boy’ on January 1st and fans are buzzing with excitement having waited 15 months since their last Korean album ‘The Boys’!
Prior to the album, a song ‘Dancing Queen’ was pre-released on December 21st along with its music video.

Check out the music video and don’t forget to support the song on iTunes and Korean online music sites such as MelOn, Bugs!, Mnet, Olleh Music and Soribada.
Meanwhile, a teaser of the new album was included at the end of the music video and the official Girls’ Generation website has been updated with the theme of the new album ‘I Got A Boy’. Teaser images of Hyoyeon were also released today, making fans anticipate their comeback more than ever.

In the video clip, Yuri said, “Hello, this is Girls Generation’s Yuri. I am the second member to be greeting everyone after Taeyeon. It’s nice to see you. Have you seen our music video for ‘Dancing Queen’ that was released not too long ago? I don’t know if it’s because we’re seeing ourselves from then for the first time in a while, but memories started coming back to me; it felt new and unusual. And so, I came here today to teach everyone to enjoy the ‘Dancing Queen’ music video 100 times more. I’m going to be teaching you this cat dance. You can follow along with the cat dance, which is the main point of ‘Dancing Queen’, by making a cat paw-like shape, and move like this, like a cat trying to act cute. It’s really easy, right? Along with ‘Dancing Queen’, please continue to give ‘I Got A Boy’ and our new album lots and lots of love. Thank you!”
