Among news of Girls’ Generation’s upcoming Japanese album, a British newspaper, “The Guardian”, has published an article on Girls’ Generation and K-Pop. The article talks about Girls’ Generation releasing an all-English album in the future, as well as the possibility of a successful entry into the Western music market.

Excerpts from the article are shown below and the full article can be viewed here.

“Girls’ Generation, a nine-member Korean girl group who had racked up millions of sales throughout east Asia long before Psy made ‘air’ horseriding socially acceptable, are poised to release their first album recorded entirely in English.”

Tentatively due for release next year by Lady Gaga’s label, Interscope, the album will mark the group’s first serious effort to court English-speaking music fans.”

“Industry experts say the group’s brand of electropop and brilliantly produced videos will ease them into unfamiliar markets outside Asia. ‘Girls’ Generation totally fit the bill’, said Mio Scobie, overseas editor of US Weekly Magazine. ‘They produce feelgood beats, instantly memorable choruses and, as I’m sure people have already noticed, they’re stunning.'”
