Girls’ Generation: “Debuting in America still feels like a dream”

February 7, 2012

Girls’ Generation, who had recently made a successful advancement into the American music market, expressed their feelings through a recent interview.

On February 6th, Girls’ Generation members Taeyeon, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon and Seohyun appeared on JTBC’s ‘News 10’ segment ‘Dispatch Interview’.

Sooyoung revealed, “The members all sat together to watch our first appearance on American TV. Even while watching ourselves on TV, we still couldn’t believe what we were seeing, what we had done. And even now we still don’t.”

Seohyun continued, “Even though we were amazed at what we were seeing, we could still point out our mistakes during that performance. So we said to ourselves that we had to make sure to do better next time.”

On January 31st and February 1st, Girls’ Generation became the first Korean artist to appear on the American talk shows CBS’s ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ and ABC’s ‘Live! with Kelly’.

After appearing on these popular talk shows, media around the world began to focus on these girls. America’s famous media news provider, Wall Street Journal, even published an article about the girls’ success and about their future potential.

As soon as the girls returned to Korea, they held a short interview with JTBC’s reporters talking about their visit to America. Taeyeon confessed, “Surprisingly a lot of people recognized us while we were there. Not long ago while we were in Paris, quite a few people had recognized us when we were just looking around the Eiffel Tower. That was pretty amazing too.”

She continued, “It didn’t make us believe that it was because we were popular, but it just made us think that a lot of people must have watched our performance on the show.”

Sooyoung also expressed their hope to perform on bigger stages. “We hope that one day we will be able to perform at music award shows in America, such as the AMA or the EMMYs.”

Lastly, they talked about their wish of having their own private plane. “Not long ago some photos of us resting in the plane were released on a tabloid. If we had our own private plane, then we could rest in peace without having to worry about anything.” They also mentioned, “Also, in order to do a world tour, it would be nice to have our own private plane for that too.”

Jessica met up with her pre-debut vocal trainer, Kim JoHan once again.

During the recording of JTBC’s ‘Girls’ Generation and Dangerous Boys’ which will be aired on January 29th, Girls’ Generation carried out the outdoor classes prepared for their mentees.

For the sake of her student, Goo JiSoo who aspires to be a singer, Jessica had arranged a meeting with Kim JoHan to conduct a vocal test for JiSoo. As soon as Jessica met Kim JoHan, she gave her teacher a warm hug, showing their close friendship and expressing her pleasure to see him once again. Jessica then introduced Kim JoHan, who was also Taeyeon’s vocal trainer, to JiSoo.

In front of Kim JoHan, JiSoo performed Lee Juk’s ‘I’m So Fortunate’ and received some comments and tips from the talented singer. Judging by JiSoo’s singing ability, Kim JoHan believes that JiSoo has the potential to be a singer.

To determine JiSoo’s vocal range, a vocalization test was conducted. As the test progressed, JiSoo who could not hit the high note stopped abruptly. Jessica then encouraged JiSoo by saying, “Do not stop at this part. At first, I could not do it too but as I practiced continously, I managed to hit the high notes,” sharing her experiences like a senior to a junior artist.

In addition to that, Jessica also showed her firm singing ability and her unique charm by performing the OST of ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Part of Your World’ in the presence of JiSoo and Kim JoHan.

Besides Jessica, Sunny had also arranged a meeting with Dynamic Duo for her mentee, Kim SungHwan who wants to be a hip-hop musician. Seohyun, on the other hand, took Kim HoiHoon who has no ambition to a special place for various meaningful outdoor class activities.

Girls’ Generation mentors Dangerous Boys with concern and sincerity

January 19, 2012

Seohyun: “You shouldn’t live like that!”

Tiffany: “A promise isn’t something that you should try to keep; it’s something that you must keep.”

Through the new show ‘SNSD and the Dangerous Boys’, which is being aired through the new broadcasting channel JTBC, viewers are able to see Girls’ Generation fulfilling their responsibilities as mentors at very high standards. At times, the girls can be harsh and upfront mentors and at other times, they can be the soft and encouraging elder sisters. But either way, the girls’ heartfelt concern towards the five troublesome boys can be felt.

Up until now, Girls’ Generation has shown a lot of their various talents and bright personalities through singing, acting, musicals and more, without a peaceful day to rest. However, through this program, more of the girls’ personalities and characteristics were shown to the point, where even the fans were surprised that the girls’ had a side of them like this, which gathered even more attention from the viewers.

Instead of mentoring the boys as Girls’ Generation, each member carried out their roles as mentors by approaching the boys as themselves and not as top celebrities by just being as they were with their real personalities. And by doing so, some of the girls even created characters for themselves, such as, ‘Hot-headed Seohyun’, ‘Mommy Taeyeon’ and ‘Strict Tiffany’.

Even when the cameras are not running and they are not filming, the girls continue to keep in touch with their assigned mentee, and even with their busy schedules, they always find the time to talk with the boys and send them words of encouragement and advice. In particular, the text messages that were sent between Taeyeon and her mentee was broadcasted on one of the episodes which gathered a lot of attention, as well as envy from the fans.

Although the girls are an icon that most of youth looks up to, heartfelt concern and sincerity has to be included during this mentoring process or it would have never made an impact on the boys. So putting the entertainment and program aside, it is because of their true concern and strong sense of duty to help improve the lifestyle of these boys, that the boys themselves find hope and the will to change for their own good.

‘SNSD and the Dangerous Boys’ airs every Sunday at 7.30pm.
