—About their performance at the famous Los Angeles Staples Center

BoA: Ever since I heard about it, I’ve been really excited. It’s the first time we are able to perform together at a place like this, so it makes me all the more happy.

Kangta: When I was performing with my group H.O.T we weren’t given this chance, so I’m happy I get to stand on this wonderful stage with my juniors. I’m nervous and worried, but more than that I’m looking forward to it and am happy I can perform her.

—The fact most in the audience are not Korean-American’s, it seems this has a big significance.

Yunho: We are able to make our culture widely known. Still, the fact that various people from different countries have an interest (in us), makes me very happy.

Leeteuk: I feel very happy and honored. Since there are fans all over the world cheering for us, from now on I feel like I need to do my best even more.

—How did you feel about meeting the fans at the airport?

Changmin: I honestly wasn’t expecting it.I could even see the crowd of people who came to see us from a distance. Our languages are different. Since they don’t really have a chance to get to know us, I was really surprised, but I was also grateful that they came to welcome us.

Onew: I was concerned and thought to myself, “I wonder what it will be like when we arrive in America”, but (when we arrived) I was happy that so many fans came to see us. I hope they continue cheering for us after this too.

—SNSD has just completed a successful debut in Japan, but do you plan on advancing to America?

Tiffany: I want to do activities in America as well. Personally, I also want to try acting. I have various anticipations for overseas activities. I feel that music is a common language throughout the world.

Siwon: All of us have a dream that, if given the chance, we would like to try advancing to America.
