On February 22nd, Girls’ Generation took home two awards on the First Gaon Chart KPOP Awards show.

Girls’ Generation won the Oricon Chart Special Award for their chart topping first Japan album. While all the members were not in attendance, Yoona arrived from a previous schedule just in time to accept the award. Taeyeon, who was MC for the awards show, also said a few words thanking fans.

Gaon awarded albums by quarters of the year, and Girls’ Generation won the Album of the Year Award for the fourth quarter with “The Boys”. Yoona returned to the stage and thanked fans all around the world for their love and support, and also said that she missed her members. In a cute moment, Yoona complained that Taeyeon was too far away since she was at the MC podium off to the side of the stage, but both Taeyeon and Yoona still did their cheer “Right now, it’s Girls’ Generation!” along with the many fans in attendance.

Girls’ Generation had the highest selling album by a Korean artist on the Oricon chart in Japan and highest selling album on the Gaon chart in Korea in 2011.

A stylist for Girls’ Generation, Seo Sookyung, also won a Style Award for her work with “The Boys”.

Congratulations to Girls’ Generation on their wins! Check out the acceptance speeches below.
