Korea’s strongest girl group is finally coming to Japan this summer!!
They’re pretty like Barbie dolls with their beautiful and radiant long legs, men and women of all ages love these 9 angels. It really seems to be a girls’ generation -----.

Our password is, “Right now, it’s Girls’ Generation!”

—In Korea you guys well known for being fashion leaders, what is a noteworthy fashion item for this summer?

Taeyeon: Because sleeveless shirts and mini bottoms increase in the summer, I think it’s fun to wear vintage bracelets on ones arms and legs.

Hyoyeon: Wear simple clothes with big accessories is a big point. It’s cute to layer several bracelets and wear wrist watches .

Tiffany: This year I’ve noticed floral printed one piece dresses and airy long dresses. It seems their really popular in my neighborhood too.

Sunny: Of course short shorts are in! Short shorts are really popular among the SNSD members right now.

Sooyoung: Oh, yes! Long shirts are also stylish to wear.

Jessica: Plaid shirts are also good.

Seohyun: If you add comfortable strappy shoes, then you’ve already perfectly completed SNSD’s summer style.

—In addition to short shorts, what’s also popular among the members currently?

Seohyun: We watch the TV. We monitor our performances on programs.

Yoona: In June, we were all watching the World Cup. It was really exciting!

Hyoyeon: Another thing that’s popular is fruits. We love them and we’re always preparing them on location.

Yuri: Since it’s summer, we often eat shaved ice (snow-cones) and ice cream!

—You’re going to perform your Showcase concert at Ariake Coliseum (August 25th). What did you think when you found out you would be debuting in Japan?

Sooyoung: I’ve already lived in Japan before. I love Japanese food, so I was really happy.

Sunny: It’s going to be a new challenge. At first I worried with things like, “Will this turn out well?” But now I’m really looking forward to it!

Yuri: I felt in only one word, “Fight!” (Note: Fight/Faito is a Japanese version of Fighting/Hwaiting!) Because I’m together with the members, I have more anticipation than anxiety.

Yoona: I’m naturally worried about language. So, I had better do my best and study more Japanese.

—How are you studying Japanese?

Taeyeon: I’ve been interested in Japanese culture since middle school and I studied Japanese a little bit. My favorite word is….”Yatta”!? (Note: Yatta means “Hooray” or literally “I did it!”)

Hyoyeon: Right now, we’re all getting lessons through our office, and we are also studying by listening to Japanese songs and watching Japanese dramas.

Tiffany: Because I like Miyazaki Hayao’s works, I am studying by watching animes like “My Neighbor Totoro”. But, I’m still a beginner….

Yoona: I can’t really participate in the lessons at the office very much. So, I’ll tell you in the future. My favorite Japanese is “Doki doki” and “Arigatou gozaimasu”. (Note: “Doki Doki” is the sound of your heart beating and “arigatou gozaimasu” means “Thank you.”)

Jessica: I like the standard phrase “Aishiteru”. (Note: “Aishiteru” means “I love you”.) I also like the way “Chotto zutsu” sounds, it’s cute. (Note: “Chotto zutsu” means “A little bit”.)

Sunny: Weeell, this is a question but, is it true that you can hold a conversation with just the 2 words “Doumo” and “Douzo”? (Note: Doumo and Douzo have a lot of different meanings.)

—Yes, you could say that, nice discovery (Haha). Everyone, do you guys have a favorite J-POP song and Karaoke song that you’re particularly good at?

Jessica: Mika Nakashima’s “Yuki no Hana”!

Tiffany: A senpai from my company, BoA’s “Possibility”. (Note: Senpai is the same as Sunbae.) In addition to that, I also like m-flo, I have all of their albums.

Lastly, please tell us your goal for Japan.

Taeyeon: I want to quickly let everyone in Japan hear, see and feel SNSD’s music and stage performances. Please look forward to us!

Yuri: I’ll work hard so fans fill up the big venues. Everyone, let’s have fun this summer!

It's basically just a magazine about K-POP girl groups, it has things like this, it has Japanese translations of songs, Japanese letters so they can sing the songs in Korean, tips on how to do their choreography, pictures, articles on the Korean entertainment system, etc etc... XD

I love how they have an SNSD fashion look for
each season lol! Sooyoung's answer for wanting to go to
Japan has to do with food of course.
They sound excited to go but I hope they don't stay too long.
Thanks for sharing!!

Miyazaki is a god, all of his movies are great, good story line/beautifully animated. It really makes me happy to hear that Tiffany is a fan/is watching his movies to learn the language.

I also love how Taeyeon's favorite word is YATTA!!! its my favorite Japanese word too XD

Gahhh! I cannot wait to hear them speak in Japanese. They're so cute choosing their favourite japanese words, some of which are my favourite to say too. It's so exciting to see them starting to promote in Japan, hopefully we see more of these articles soon once they debut. SNSD faito!

Yay, it's korea's strongest girl groups haha. Their fashion tips
are seriously in line with what they usually wear. Sooyoung
and her long shirts and hyo with her bold/big accessories.
Of course Baby would watch TV to monitor their performances haha.
Can't wait to be hearing taeyeon's yatta and sunny's response to
the question about japanese is cute <3
