Girls’ Generation members have revealed their ranking of their faces without make-up (bare faces).
During the recent filming of KBS-2TV talk show ‘Hello’, Girls’ Generation revealed truths about their bare faces.
On that day, the MC asked, “Which member looks most different with and without make-up?” and the members gave their answers while saying “She’s pretty”.
However, Hyoyeon added, “I like my face after make-up”, making the entire studio burst into laughter. Upon hearing Hyoyeon’s unexpected answer, Girls’ Generation started their discussion on the topic of bare faces.
MC Lee Young-Ja said, “We have received information that Sunny looks different with and without make-up.” Sunny answered, “I have 2 modes, one being Girls’ Generation’s Sunny and another being Soonkyu.”
Sunny continued her story, “When the Soonkyu mode is on, my hair is tied backwards and even my members say that I look like a man.” She also revealed that members who live together with her were shocked.
Tiffany continued, “After getting her short haircut, Sunny looks more boyish now.”
This episode of ‘Hello’ will be aired on January 14th, 11.15pm KST.

Just under a fortnight after the release of their 4th full-length album ‘I Got A Boy’, Girls’ Generation has been placed under the spotlight in not only Korean media but international media as well. On January 11th, Girls’ Generation and their new song ‘I Got A Boy’ was featured in an article in the entertainment and music section of ‘TIME’, an American weekly news magazine, which is also one of the world’s largest circulated magazine of its kind.
In the article, an interview with Girls’ Generation’s U.S. marketing representative revealed some exciting news for fans – the girls will be releasing a version of ‘I Got A Boy’ with Interscope Records later this year as part of their first full-length American album!
At the forefront of the Kpop wave, it was also inevitable that Girls’ Generation, dubbed “K-pop megagroup” by the writer of the article, will be compared to the hugely successful ‘Gangnam Style’ by fellow Korean PSY but Jane Choi, the group’s marketing representative in the U.S., said, “I don’t think we’re at a disadvantage because we’re not as funny and the dance isn’t as easy to follow as the horsey dance.”
She also thinks that PSY’s success could be beneficial for Girls’ Generation. After all, he proved that unfamiliarity and the language barrier will not stop public interest in an artist.
The article also highlighted YouTube viewerships and how it helped to spread songs out to fan globally but it was also said that air play on radios plays a huge role in making music mainstream so it will be an important part of getting the group across to the public.
Besides TIME magazine, Girls’ Generation and their new album was also given exposure in other international media including Billboard.com, where a track-by-track review was written in an article published on January 4th, shortly after the release of the album.
Los Angeles Times also gave a review on the song and music video, while pointing out similarities and comparisons to other pop songs in the market.
Meanwhile, ‘I Got A Boy’ has been topping charts domestically and internationally. The song has also won Mnet’s M!Countdown on Thursday as well as KBS Music Bank’s K-Chart on Friday.
Having received their first win for ‘I Got A Boy’ on Mnet’s M!Countdown yesterday, Girls’ Generation did it again on Music Bank and brought home their second win for their new song!
‘I Got A Boy’ managed to beat PSY’s hit song ‘Gangnam Style’ with 15,955 points to 10,946 points to top KBS Music Bank’s K-Chart this week!
Besides performing ‘I Got A Boy’ on Music Bank, Girls’ Generation members Tiffany and Taeyeon also performed ‘유리아이 (Lost in Love)’, a duet included in their 4th album.

In a recent interview, Girls’ Generation was asked about their new comeback song – ‘I Got A Boy’. ‘I Got A Boy’ is an electronic dance song that combines pop, retro, urban genre. As the public listened to the song, most people thought it was ‘fresh’ or ‘unfamiliar’, so what do the members think?
They answered, “Since we are making a comeback after such a long time, we were troubled by the image that we should present this time. Although many people are still new to many things, in fact no matter which song we sing, a part of it definitely contains our style.” Taeyeon said, “As they listen, they will get used to it.” while Tiffany said, “Instead, if they are unable to understand the song the first time they listen, that will make them listen more.” To that, YoonA explained, “If you still find it difficult to understand, then please watch our performance.”
Without realizing it, it has been 6 years since Girls’ Generation’s debut. In these 6 years, other girl groups had their share of crises but it was smooth sailing for Girls’ Generation.
Yet, members did not agree with that. Sooyoung said, “Crises? Internally, we always have that. Every day, we encounter crises. It’s like, we are walking on a piece of ice. Also, how is it possible for a group with 9 girls to not have friction between them?”
To the question why there were no news reports of any friction, the girls revealed their method to solve problems. Hyoyeon said, “Usually, our talks that seem useless are actually useful. Even if we quarrel we will gradually solve it. We believe firmly in each other.” In fact, members of Girls’ Generation have known one another for an average of 10 years.
Girls’ Generation has also grown up to meet the legal drinking age. When asked to choose the member that drinks the most, they answered, “Our drinking capacity differs when drinking different types of alcohol. Among us, Sunny is a good drinker regardless of type of drink while Tiffany and Yoona are the members, whose cheeks do not flush after drinking.”
When they were asked if they were afraid of pictures being taken recently, they said, smiling, “That’s why we choose to stay at home instead of going out and we play games a lot.”
On the day when the interview was conducted, Sunye of Wonder Girls attended a wedding dress photoshoot. Her natural image led the topic of discussion to marriage.
Unexpectedly, Girls’ Generation stayed cool towards this where Taeyeon said, “If members want marriage, of course we will be supportive” and Seohyun added, “but that is possible only after our approval (of the opposite party).”
Tiffany said, “When members of Spice Girls gathered to watch the musical ‘Viva Forever’, we talked about marriage. We said, “By then, we also hope to gather, either bringing our husbands or going alone.”
Meanwhile, Girls’ Generation will be promoting ‘I Got A Boy’ in January in Korea and move on to their Arena Tour concert in Japan in February.
