The return of Black Soshi

April 9, 2011

At 3.00pm Japan Local Time, Run Devil Run PV was aired on Japan’s Space Shower TV. A day before the teaser of the PV was aired on a Japanese show, along with a 1-2 seconds of the much anticipated ‘Mr.Taxi’.

How does Mr. Taxi sound like? Apparently, it was aired around the same time as the Run Devil Run PV but the broadcast was through FM Port 79.0 FM Niigata. So, our friends in Japan might have heard the song and hopefully, we might get to hear it soon as well.

Here’s a screen capture of the schedule on FM Port 79.0 FM Niigata’s website.

SNSD Japanese Debut Single cover sporting Black Soshi?

August 19, 2010

My first impression of the newly revealed cover was that it looks RDR-ish. The girls in all black with white background. Since the title is “GENIE”, I guess most people would expect to see Navy uniforms..haha.

Nonetheless, the girls look lovely and sexy as usual and I’m already using the image above as my wallpaper. It’s a nice concept, although rather unexpected. I have a hard time looking for Sunny though…hahaha. Sunny, you look very different in here because you’re super pretty in there! I’m such a fanboy!

The making of 'Run Devil Run' MV and interviews on Y-Star

March 22, 2010

Lol…I love the part where Taeyeon commented that her necklace looks like marshmallows. Jessica said that she looks like an angry person if she stays still without expression. The two maknaes, yoong and off the dorky version of the ‘Run Devil Run’ (4:13 – 4:24). It’s always fun to see their interviews. They can never hide their dorky Look at taeng at the end of the clip – whew~~ what a relief.

SNSD in all black for Inkigayo

SNSD made their comeback to Inkigayo with ‘Run Devil Run’ (RDR). Clad in the black outfits they wore in RDR MV, the girls were the last to perform, just before the Mutizen Song result announcement. The girls were not in their best condition and at times look rather uncomfortable. Probably they are still feeling tired after the filming of a CF at Jeju Island. Looks like their hectic schedules are affecting them again. Take care, Soshi! Anyway, this week’s Mutizen Song Award went to T-ara’s ‘Crazy Because of You’.

Defining Black Soshi

Black Soshi is not color dependant

Black Soshi is not color dependant

Naturally, when a person hears the word ‘black’, he/she would naturally relate to something visible. Well, this is not the case with Black Soshi. Although we’ve seen SNSD in black outfits, black nail polish, black heels, etc in ‘Run Devil Run’ MV, the Black Soshi concept is actually color-independent. As explained by Taeyeon, SNSD are not trying to portray the concept of Black Soshi with their black outfit but rather, it’s the image and aura that they are trying to portray. Thus, the color of the outfit is really insignificant as far as the concept is concern. For their Music Bank performance on the 19th or March, the girls dressed in all white. In fact, the white outfits are also featured in their MV. Does this mean, we may be seeing other colors as well for ‘Run Devil Run’ performances? I’m sure it’ll be interesting to see them in different colors for RDR.

Whos that sexy lady?

Who's that sexy lady?

After the cover of the repackaged 2nd album was released, there has been a lot of comments and speculation about the tall, sexy girl with long hair in tight black outfit on the cover. Some netizens thought that the girl is a combination of SNSD members. Great imagination though. However there are some who got it right. The girl on the cover is none other than YoonA with her sexy and matured new look, as confirmed by SM Entertainment. I guess the reason they put her on the cover is because among all the Soshi members, YoonA’s transformation from her cute and innocent style to the sexy and matured Black Soshi is the most obvious.

SNSD appeared in white today and performed ‘Run Devil Run’ for the first time on Music Bank. ‘Oh!’ has dropped to 4th place. There was a bit of confusion on this week’s K-Chart winner when the result screen clearly showed T-ara won but the MCs announced Kara as the winner. Well, the MC got it right as Kara is the actual winner.
