So Nyuh Shi Dae/SNSD/Girl’s Generation

Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD, the acronym of So Nyeo Si Dae,a nine member South Korean girl group formed in 2007 by SM Entertainment. The members include (in order of official announcement) Yoona, Tiffany, Yuri, Hyoyeon, Sooyoung, Seohyun, Taeyeon, Jessica, and Sunny.

Pre-debut

The members were professionally trained primarily in singing and dancing, while some members were also selected to be trained in acting and modeling. Many of the members already had made names for themselves in the Korean entertainment industry through their participation in magazine ads, television commercials, and small television appearances. For nearly two years, Korean websites speculated about which of the female SM Entertainment trainees would be placed into the group. Before the official release of the group name, Girls’ Generation, it was rumored that the group would be named “Super Girls” after their so-called counterpart, Super Junior.

Debut and first album

On July 19, 2007, Girls’ Generation had their first performance on M.NET’S M!Countdown. Although this performance was never broadcast on television, many videos were shot by fans and uploaded onto the internet. The song the girls performed was called “다시 만난 세계 (Into the New World)”, which ended up being their first single.

On August 2, 2007, the single “다시 만난 세계 (Into the new world)” was released. This single included two other songs, “Beginning” and “Perfect For You (소원)”. An instrumental of “Into the new world” is also included.

The group began promoting the single soon after its release. On August 5, 2007, Girls’ Generation made their debut performance on SBS’s Popular Songs, performing their first single. Although it was their first televised performance, it was lip-synched, making netizens doubt their live performance capabilities. A few days later, on August 11, Girls’ Generation did their first live performance on MBC’s Show! Music Core, which was met with mixed reviews. The day after, the group performed live for the second time on KBS’s Music Bank. This performance also had mixed reviews by netizens. Despite this, on October 11, 2007, Girls’ Generation won first place with their popular song, “Into the new world” in M!Countdown, beating Lee Seung Gi by a couple of votes.

After a short break, their first full album was released on November 1, with the lead single “소녀시대 (Girls’ Generation)”, a cover of Lee Seung Chul’s hit. Promotion for the single started in early November. Marked by cutesy dance routines and vocals, “Girls’ Generation” was a hit for the group, and the album has sold 56,804 copies to date, placing 12th in the year-end charts. In January 2008, Girls’ Generation began promoting their second single, “Kissing You”. The music video featured Donghae from Super Junior.

Documentary

Girls’ Generation’s documentary Girls’ Generation Goes to School (소녀…학교에 가다) began airing on July 27, 2007 on M.NET. There were a total of nine episodes, with seven focused on their performances, one “behind-the-scenes” look at the girls’ world, and the last being a bonus episode of the girls performing at Sunny’s high-school. Another show, broadcasted on MTV Korea, shows each of the girls at home.

The group has also joined FM Radio Station Popular Songs 106.1, which is hosted by Park Joon Hyung.
