SNSD who transformed into lovely spies following the “Retro Power” concept for the new mini album “Hoot” have received interest from various parties, especially with the release of the title track “Hoot” which took the Korean music industry by storm immediately after it was unveiled by securing the no.1 spot on major online real-time music charts.
Prior to the release of title track “Hoot” via various music sites at 10.00am KST on October 25th, teaser MV and photos which were released earlier have increased the expectation and anticipation towards the 3rd mini album.
As soon as it was unveiled, “Hoot” had surpassed songs from the likes of 2PM, Psy, Supreme Team and SG Wannabe in terms of online real-time chart ranking where it secured the no.1 spot on Monkey3, Melon and Soribada. Such achievement is an early indication that “Hoot” has a huge potential to take the country’s music scene by storm.

10 minutes is all it takes for SNSD’s ‘Oh!’ to grabbed the #1 spot on online music chart, Monkey3. I have been playing ‘Oh!’ repeatedly (I lost count on the no. of times and it’s still playing as I’m typing now) and yes! it will be the song of the year. The chorus “Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! man i man i” is contagious! Due to the explosive comeback, there are always some jealous people who are always there to spoil the party. Who cares? We’re partying with ‘Oh!’ and to those jealous people out there, well, get a life! I couldn’t help but to check the online music charts such as Melon, Bugs!, Mnet, Soribada, etc as soon as i got off from work and WOW! ‘Oh!’ is now 4th on Bugs!. Hopefully, it will get into the other charts as well. I will keep clicking on the refresh button every hour to check on the progress…hee hee. My CD will arrive on the 4th of February, so, I’m really excited about the rest of the tracks in the album. For those who has not pre-order the album, you MUST do so, otherwise you’ll regret it! Every SNSD albums are really precious to me. Not only it has lots of pretty photos in there, it also makes you feel as if you’re buying more than just a CD. It’s like a collection kind of thing.
