SNSD 


I’m not digging SNSD’s Japanese singles lately. I liked Mr. Taxi (+ several songs from their first Japanese album) and their ballads, but Paparazzi and the new song Flower Power aren’t doing it for me.

I was cautiously optimistic after seeing the concept photos, but I don’t even like the outfits in the video. I mean, I like Yoon-a’s “normal”/fancy outfit that flashes by a couple of times, but the “stewardess” outfits look really cheap imo (more like “sexy nurse at Halloween”).

The good points about this video is that Yoon-a and Yu-ri look great. Especially Yoon-a, but she’s getting most time on screen I think.

I saw a comment on youtube about the lyrics, but I don’t know if I should write it here. It’s one of those things that can’t be unheard :lol: .

I hope their Korean comeback will be nothing like this, to he honest.

CeCi Korea just posted this picture of Seo-hyun on their Facebook page.

Unbelievably pretty :shock: .

 
G-Star Raw Japan

SNSD are modelling for the clothing brand G-Star Raw in their Japanese ads. Today G-Star posted a high-res picture of one of their ads featuring SNSD. It looks a bit like a more mature version of their Gee Jeans and T-shirt look :) .

Note: the image is kind of big (4650×3288, 5.7 MB)

 

For no particular reason, here’s a picture of Tae-yeon from an LG 3D TV promotion :3

Earlier today both Tae-yeon and Seo-hyun posted on Girls’ Generation’s official site wishing S♡NE a happy Chuseok. Tae-yeon with pictures of her dressed in hanbok and Seo-hyun with pictures from her CeCi shoot.

It’s funny how different the messages are. Seo-hyun being very formal and Tae-yeon starting with “뿌잉뿌잉” (bbuing bbuing) :lol: . Tae-yeon looks so cute in hanbok, doing aegyo for the fans. Seo-hyun looks flawless.

I was spazzing so hard when I first heard that Tae-yeon was going to sing a song on the soundtrack for To the Beautiful you (아름다운 그대에게). I kind of like Tae-yeon (fun game: try to locate the biggest understatement in this post :) ) and I like all of her drama soundtrack songs. She really is the queen of drama soundtracks. The song is called Closer (가까이) and was first heard at the end of episode 5. It’s a really nice ballad. I like the whole soundtrack, but Closer and Stand Up are the best songs, imo.

The video clip is from Tae-yeon’s performance of the song at Inkigayo. I wish I were there! >_< Look how close to the stage everyone is standing.

As for the drama, I’ve watched 12 episodes so far. While the plot is a bit uneven, I like this drama a lot. I’ve been rooting for Eun-gyeol since the beginning, but I’ve had the feeling from the start that it won’t end the way I would like. I’m glad he decided to do what he did in episode 11, though (차은결 파이팅!). The last episodes will air next week. How will it end?! :)

 
Tae-yeon UFO September 2012

Tae-yeon updated her UFO (Korean site where fans can send questions to and get answers from K-Pop stars) picture.

So cute!

She also posted these pictures on the official Girls’ Generation site (SMTown):

Oh, hey! 1000th post.

 

SNSD’s latest Japanese music video was released last Monday. It’s a nice, but perhaps a bit generic sounding, ballad. The music video is basically just showing off the beauty of the girls. I don’t mind at all :) .

Tae-yeon looks amazing as per usual. There is some kind of colour clash with the pink background though. Tiffany also shines. Yoon-a’s figure looks amajing! I’m not too fond of Sunny’s outfit, but I love her laugh :) .

The single will be released on the 26th and I’ve heard something about there being an up tempo song on that single too, which might get its own music video. I can’t remember where I heard it though, so take it with a grain of salt.

 

This is what I ordered for this summer as far as K-Pop (and J-Pop) items go.

I’ve stopped ordering “album + poster” packages, since I already have loads of posters that I don’t have up on the walls. But I couldn’t resist the poster for IU’s latest single Spring of a Twenty Year Old. I’ve wanted an IU poster for a while and I’ve kind of regretted not asking if I could buy one that was on display in a music store in Seoul. It fit in a frame I had lying around too, so that’s a plus. … Continue reading

 

SNSD’s next Japanese single Paparazzi will be released on June 27th. Today a teaser for the song and music video was shown on Japanese morning TV. SM also uploaded a teaser to their youtube channel:

You don’t get to hear much at all in the youtube teaser, really. In the clip from Japanese TV (below) you hear a bit more and you can also see more of their outfits. I’m sure more teasers will follow :) .

Not sure what to think about the “ooh-la-la-la” part, but the beat sounds pretty nice.
