Big Girl Group, SNSD !!
Girls’ Generation (Hangul: 소녀시대; RR: Sonyeo Sidae), also known as SNSD, is a South Korean girl group formed by S.M. Entertainment. The group is composed of eight members: Taeyeon, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, and Seohyun. Originally a nine-piece group, Jessica later departed from the group in September of 2014. Girls’ Generation debuted in 2007 with their Korean eponymous debut album.
Though the album gained some attention, it was not until 2009 that the group rose to fame with the single Gee, which claimed the top spot on KBS’s Music Bank for a record-breaking nine consecutive weeks, and was named the most popular song of the 2000s in South Korea by Melon. Girls’ Generation further consolidated their popularity in the South Korean music scene with their follow-up singles Tell Me Your Wish (Genie), Oh!, and Run Devil Run, which were released in mid-2009 and early 2010.
Girls’ Generation’s signature music styles is characterized as electropop and bubblegum pop, although they have varied their sound widely, incorporating various genres including hip hop, R&B, and EDM. They have sold over 4.4 million albums and 30 million digital singles, as of 2012. The group’s immense popularity in their native country South Korea has earned them numerous accolades and the titles “The Nation’s Singers” and “The Nation’s Girl Group”.
Girls’ Generation is also deemed one of the prominent figures of the Korean Wave, and one of the most popular K-pop acts internationally. They are the first Asian girl group to achieve five music videos with over 100 million views on YouTube: Gee, I Got a Boy, The Boys, Mr. Taxi, and Oh!. In Japan, they became the first non-Japanese girl group to have three number-one albums on the Japanese Oricon Albums Chart, and their three Japanese concert tours attracted a record-breaking 550,000 spectators, more than any other Korean girl group.
