Most Popular Song Award: Oh!

It’s a super busy day for the girls!

December 30, 2010

On December 30th, SNSD will be traveling back and forth between Korea and Japan as they will be attending the year-end events in the 2 countries. This is indeed the proof that SNSD are currently enjoying huge popularity in both countries.

The girls departed for Japan last night ( mentioned ‘this morning’, which is wrong) and they will be attending the ‘Japan Record Awards’ which will be televised LIVE on TBS. ‘The 52nd Japan Record Awards‘ is an annual award ceremony organized by Composers Association of Japan and SNSD have been nominated for the Best Rookie Award.

After the award ceremony (probably after Best Rookie Award is announced), the girls will be taking an express plane ride to Korea where they will be performing at the ‘2010 KBS Song Festival‘. According to the list of performances released by KBS, SNSD will only be performing in the second half of the show. For this year’s festival, SNSD are set to grace the stage with ‘Run Devil Run‘ and then followed by ‘Oh!‘. For the ‘Most Popular Song Award’, SNSD who have released 3 powerful hits, ‘Oh!’, ‘Run Devil Run’ and ‘Hoot’ are seen strong contenders.

A representative of SM Entertainment said, “Due to SNSD’s outstanding achievements successful promotional activities in both Korea and Japan this year, there have been great interest and demands for SNSD to attend the year-end special music programs in the two countries. In order to meet and spend more memorable time with fans, we have decided to charter a private plane in view of the members’ safety, convenience and urgency”.

The chartered plane is rumored to be a luxurious Gulfstream G550 private business jet owned by Japanese airline company, EXCEL Airways. The 13-seater plane will be flying the 9 girls along with their manager and 3 staff directly from Haneda to Seoul.

The overlapping schedules are indeed adding more burden to their already-hectic schedules and the girls ought to be praised for their willingness and determination to attend both events. We hope that the girls would have plenty of rest once the year-end events are over.
