Sooyoung, the next member to start connecting with fans through Instagram!

February 15, 2014

SONEs received a very special belated Valentine’s Day present today, in the form of Sooyoung’s Instagram account!

Sooyoung’s Instagram was first announced on Hyoyeon’s Instagram update when she welcomed her fellow member to the world of Instagram with a selca of the both of them.

Sooyoung has since posted one photo to the account and I am sure that we can look forward to more in the future!

With Sooyoung’s new Instagram account, this marks the seventh Girls’ Generation member who has a publicly-known social networking account on either Instagram, Weibo and Twitter.

Yoona and Tiffany-ah, when’s your turns? We’ll be waiting patiently until that day comes :)

Meanwhile, the girls are performing for the Macau leg of their world tour today at the Cotai Arena.

12 Reasons to Love Kim Hyoyeon!

September 21, 2013

In the second to last stop aboard the Soshi Express in 2013, we celebrate Miss Kim Hyoyeon’s birthday! The dorky, fun-loving, mischievous Hyoyeon is one of the laugh-inducing sources in the group and her one-of-a-kind personality and passionate attitude towards performing and dancing made her irreplaceable. Here’s 10 facts about Hyoyeon that you should know.

1. Kim Hyoyeon = Dancing Queen

You can’t call yourself a fan if you do not know that Hyoyeon is synonymous to a dance machine. She is THE dancing queen! If her series of dance performances on ‘Dancing with the Stars 2′ aren’t enough to convince you, I’m sure the hundreds or even thousands of videos in Youtube of her dancing will do the trick.

2. She rocks boy groups’ dances too!

Not only does she do well in various dances (pop, hip hop, dancesport, etc), she can very well beat boy groups at their own dances too! Check out this candid clip of her dancing to EXO’s ‘Growl’ during a broadcast radio show recently.

3. She’s athletic!

Look at her running and winning the race, leaving her group members in the dust without breaking a sweat! It is no wonder that Girls’ Generation members picked her as one of the most athletic in the group. Go Hyoyeon!

4. She has abs!

Anyone who has tried working out will know how hard it is to develop abs. Hyoyeon’s enviable abs only goes to show the hard work she has been putting in for practices and work outs over the years!

5. She’s a prankster and a troll!

Always the mood-maker in the group, she brings lots of laughter and energy with her trolling and pranks, often joined by her fellow chodings.

6. She’s funny!

She goes all out to be funny to the amazement and sometimes, horror of her group members! But no one can resist Hyoyeon’s humour (and crazy antics)! You’re the best!

7. She’s good with animals!

Well, in this case, she’s getting friendly with a donkey without a fear and what does donkey remind you of? Princess Fiona, of course! (Watch Intimate Note if you have no idea. Intimate Note is one of the most hilarious variety shows Girls’ Generation has ever taken part in!)

8. She’s violent!

Oh my god, what are you doing to your manager, Hyoyeon?

9. She’s not afraid to voice her thoughts!

Check out the video at 0:07 when Hyoyeon pointed out Yuri’s horrible singing!

10. She’s a gorgeous blonde!

Not everyone can pull off the blonde look but Hyoyeon managed to and she looks jaw-droppingly, knock-your-socks-off gorgeous!

11. She’s sexy too!

Okay, so she can be sexy in more ways than one without revealing much skin.

12. She has the most precious, heart-melting million-dollar smile :)

But of course, this hardly covers the tip of the iceberg to the wonderful person that is Kim Hyoyeon. And words will never be enough to describe this special and wonderful Dancing Queen and sunshine, who brightens up our lives.

With this, we wish Hyoyeon a very happy birthday!

Perhaps we will see more SNS accounts from the other members in the near future too? I know I for one will be utmostly delighted, won’t you?
