It’s just a hiccup

August 24, 2011


Recently a video entitled ‘SNSD’s 3rd Album Demo Song Leaked’ emerged on YouTube. The demo song mentioned is none other than ‘HikkUp’ composed by Andrew Jackson and it was registered in SNSD’s list of songs with the Korea Music Copyright Association. The demo song was discovered by fans from Andrew Jackson’s MySpace site.

In response to this, SM Entertainment clarified, “This song will not be included in SNSD’s upcoming domestic album and it is not confirmed whether there is a plan to release it in the future”.

Upon the request of SM Entertainment, the video has been removed from YouTube. Due to growing anticipation and interest about SNSD’s upcoming comeback, of which the details have not been confirmed, fans have been looking and searching for information about overseas composers through Social Networking Services (SNS).
