Girls’ Generation’s English version of “The Boys” was originally released on October 19th, 2011 on SMTOWN’s YouTube channel. Soon after the release, the video was blocked due to the girls getting their own official VEVO channel on YouTube. On November 22nd, 2011, the video was unblocked for public view.



Due to the different languages, the angle shots in the English version differed slightly in comparison to the Korean version. The solo shots were adjusted accordingly to the language.  The main chorus was, for the most part, unchanged.

The Korean version of “The Boys” has been a huge success, with close to twenty million views since its release one month ago. The Japanese versions of “Gee”, “Genie”, “MR. TAXI”, and “Run Devil Run” are also uploaded onto their VEVO channel.

Meanwhile, the  maxi single that was planned to be released on November 19th has been delayed. However, there has been no official announcement from SM Entertainment. Stay tuned to Soshified for the latest information.
