Did anyone notice that Sunny is no longer a blondie?
…and the Best Rookie Award goes to………S/Mileage
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 (sportsseoul.com 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.
SNSD and Big Bang will be attending Japan’s most prestigious year-end music award ceremony, the 52nd Japan Record Award on December 30th.
SNSD who made an entrance to the Japanese music industry in September this year, will be eyeing for the Best New Artist Award at the prestigious award ceremony. The winner of the Best New Artist Award will be chosen from the 4 winners of New Artist Award namely SNSD, ICONIQ, Kikuchi Madoka and S/Mileage.
Star News was told, “SNSD will be attending this year’s Japan Record Award. On the same day, KBS Music Festival will be held. Most likely, they will be flying back to Korea for KBS Music Festival right after the Japan Record Award”.
Like previous editions, The Japan Record Award, organized by Japan Composer’s Association will be aired LIVE by TBS, a Japanese broadcasting station.
