I’ve only seen their promotion video once on Youtube and I was knocked out! If you understand the specialty of each member, it will not get in the way with the other members.

Everyone has the feel of being a lead.”  He mentions his admiration of the girls and how they embody the spirit of “all for one and one for all”.

Girls’ Generation Mentioned in IGN Dance Central 2 Review

IGN is one of the biggest video game websites in the world, and it just so happens, one of their main editors is a SONE.  Ryan Clements reviewed Dance Central 2 for XBOX360 this week, and despite a glowing review and a 9.0/10 score, he found one thing missing in this otherwise fantastic game.  There was a severe lack of Soshi!  As Mr. Clements writes in the review, “Also, Dance Central 2 could have used some Girls’ Generation choreography. Just saying.”  Who can blame him?  Dance games are perfect for Girls’ Generation with all their amazing choreography.  You just know the “arrow dance” would be incredibly fun in a game like Dance Central.  I wonder how many new SONEs Mr. Clements created this week with that review.

SONE Picture/Video of the Week

The teaser images for Girls’ Generation’s 3rd album “The Boys” created quite a stir when they were released.  The girls had such varying and unique styles.  This inspired one of Soshified’s members, JadeFalcon, to sit down and draw each member’s teaser image using pencil.  The drawings came out incredibly well with so much detail.  One of my favorite aspects of the drawings is Yoona’s crown, where you can see the sparkles from the jewels.  JadeFalcon said it took roughly three hours per drawing.  That’s quite the dedication!  I’m always amazed at the different ways SONEs show their love for the girls.  These drawings show that love in a unique and talented way.  Check out the rest of JadeFalcon’s drawings of “The Boys” teaser images here.
