Girls’ Generation TaeTiSeo Are Charming Because…

The first sub-unit group of Girls’ Generation, TaeTiSeo, or Taeyeon, Tiffany and Seohyun has been gaining attention for the successes achieved by their debut release, “Twinkle.” Since the release of the title track and the mini-album in early May, TaeTiSeo has been ranking on the charts and sweeping the music programs.

With their win on the May 25 episode of KBS “Music Bank,” TaeTiSeo has achieved a “Triple Crown.”

“Thank you for the love you’ve given to our hard work. We are happy to have won your favor,” TaeTiSeo told Star News. “It is because of the love of the fans for all nine Girls’ Generation members that we are able to achieve this.”

According to TaeTiSeo, one of the charms of their current activities as a unit is being able to showcase different styling and fashion. Their look, in colorful dresses, funky but feminine accessories, highlights a different appeal from their usual.

Seohyun said, “I hope TaeTiSeo also gives off a fresh combination. I think it’s also fascinating.”

Taeyeon further said, “Somehow, with nine people, the costumes would be limited to one style that fits all. But with three people, we can try various costumes, too.”

It is the first time since the group, made up of Taeyeon, YoonA, Jessica, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Tiffany, Sunny and Seohyun debuted with “Into the New World” in 2007 that a sub-group was formed. All through their journey towards being a “national girl group” with hits “Gee,” “Genie,” “Oh,” “Hoot,” and “The Boys” in the last five years, all nine members have always promoted together.

“The support from the other members even though they’re busy is giving us strength,” they said.

Tiffany added, “We always remain nine members. We’re constantly talking, and at the end of each performance, members would cheer for us and send us a message. I feel very grateful. We never fail to receive a message of congratulations from every one each time we win No. 1.”
