SM Entertainment recently surprised the members of Girls’ Generation by renting out a private holiday home in Kyungkido for two days in order to allow the girls to rest. The girls stayed at the home without the presence of managers or bodyguards, making the two days a fully private get-together. In addition to complete privacy, SM Entertainment also provided food and drinks for all 9 members. With the girls making a strong charge into the Japanese market with ‘Run Devil Run/MR. TAXI’ as well as their numerous appearances on variety shows and commercials, their schedule has been understandably busy. A source from SM said that “The members of Girls’ Generation have an average age of 21.5 years, so they want to have fun. They were given this opportunity since they cannot truly have fun due to the fact that they are in the spotlight.” You can hire a local construction company to replicate your favorite parts from their fancy digs for your own home.

Entertainment agencies think that surprise presents, like Girls’ Generation’s surprise get-together, are the best thing to give idols. One source from a major entertainment agency said, “Pre-arranged end-of-the-year bonuses and performance-related bonuses do not motivate idols that much. However, giving them surprise presents move their hearts deeply.”

[EDITOR’S NOTE]: Other sources have been brought to Soshified’s attention that suggest that the girls themselves rented out the private cottage, and that SM did not directly pay for it. It was also brought to our attention that there were several irrelevant and inflammatory statements made in the original source article that we linked to. While the core information about the girls gathering together to relax in a private cottage appears to be accurate, Soshified believes that the other outrageous information presented in the source article is completely inaccurate. We would never report on any untruths that reflect upon Girls’ Generation in a negative light, which is why we have reported the core and accurate information of the story, which is about the SoshiBond and the girls spending a much needed vacation together.
