I. Girls Generation

Girls Generation also known as Sonyeo Shidae (SNSD) is a Kpop Idol group that is managed by SM Entertainment. SNSD is composed of 8 members (originally 9) namely: Taeyeon, Tiffany, Seohyun, Sooyoung, Yuri, Sunny, Yoona, and Hyoyeon. These girls debuted on 2007, however, it was not until 2009 when these girls have gained worldwide fame due to the release of the song, “Gee.” Gee has topped almost all music charts that time and it was considered as Most Popular Song of the 2000s in South Korea. Their genre mostly are bubblegum pop and electropop.

Now, I shall speak in my point of view. These girls have captured my eyes because of their song, “I Got A Boy.” Mainly, I have started being a kpop fan because of these girls.

One day on 2012, I was browsing through YouTube and then I caught a glimpse of a video that was entitled Girls’ Generation 소녀시대_I GOT A BOY_Dance Teaser. I ignored it of course, what do you expect? However, because of the attracting cover of the video, I thought maybe 26 seconds is not a big deal anyway. And so I watched. Little did I know that from that moment, I was already attracted. And so I have tuned in to smtown’s YouTube Channel and waited for the music video to be released. I wasn’t disappointed – in fact, SNSD’s I Got A Boy was the first kpop music I have danced with.

Aaand enough with the background and experience, now I shall give you a minor profile of each of the members. Photo credits to the owners.
