소녀시대 So Nyuh Shi Dae/Girls Generation

How did I end up fan-boying?

Simple answer is this: Yes they are beautiful. Yes they can sing. Yes they can dance. Yes they are absolutely hilarious (individually and collectively). But what really appeals to me are their group dynamics and the individuality of each personality within it. Its hitherto something I haven’t seen much in a group of talented entertainers.

By way of introduction, Girls Generation or “So Nyuh Shi Dae” (SNSD for short) is NINE member girl band from South Korea who debut in 2007. Mainly of pop influence, with some ballads tossed in, lately they are venturing into the dance genre. All of them are quite young, around the 18-20 are range. Larger than life in Korea, their popularity is expanding throught Asia and now for the rest of the world.

I found out about them whilst looking up more info about the Wonder Girls. I think the first song I heard was “Kissing You” and I thought to myself, “how weird is this lollipop dance thing?” That is the start of this love affair. Its my housemate’s fault. I’d have been oblivious to the fact otherwise.

To be honest, their songs are quite catchy with some cool dance routines and they act quite cute (sexy too!), but nothing special. I think the passion started after watching the documentary of their debut “Girls Go To School” and the individual MTV episodes on each member. It was then that I started to have a bigger affection for the girls.Each of them are special in their own way (I can talk about them some time else) and together the richness of their personalities are overwhelming.

I am not one for fanboying mainstream bands, but these girls are special and I want to put them on that pantheon. I qualifiy to be in the “oppa (older brother)” fanbase hence my wish to cheer them on quietly with dignity, support them and protect them.

So…right now, its So Nyuh Shi Dae!

Cheerio and hwaiting!
