Actress Shin Se Kyung discussed her friendship with members of Girls’ Generation on June 9th’s broadcast of KBS2‘s ‘Entertainment Relay‘.
The star sat down for an interview to discuss her surprise transformation into a singer, and mentioned that the song she loves to sing most is by Girls’ Generation.
She added, “Some of the Girls’ Generation members are my friends. I go to the same university as Sooyoung so we were already friends, and I got closer to Yuri unni after we both worked together in the drama ‘Fashion King‘.”
When asked if she met with the members a lot, Shin Se Kyung answered honestly, “Since they’re part of a global girl group, [they don’t have much] time to meet up.”
A hilarious photo compilation comparing Girls‘ Generation members to internet memes had fans and netizens laughing.
The photo above was recently posted on a Korean online community bulletin with the title, “9GAG Girls’ Generation“. (9GAG is a popular social media website in which users upload comical images).
The released photo humorously features members Yuri, Hyoyeon, Taeyeon, Sooyoung, and Tiffany next to frequently used internet memes, leaving people laughing over the similarities in their expressions.
Netizens who saw the photo commented, “They look exactly the same“, “The 9GAG synchronization is daebak“, “Girls’ Generation even has cartoon doppelgangers“.
The DVD cover drama “Fashion King,” starring Shin Se Kyung and Yoo Ah In, has been attracting a lot of attention online after a photo circulated several internet communities.
Based on the fact that “Fashion King” has yet to be broadcast in China, many are speculating that the DVD is a bootleg copy of the series. However, what really grabbed netizens’ eyes was the photo of cast. While the drama’s four main leads are Shin Se Kyung, Yoo Ah In, Kwon Yuri (Girls’ Generation), and Lee Jae Hoon, the DVD cover replaced Shin Se Kyung with Seohyun from GIrls’ Generation.
Netizens commented, “Girls’ Generation dominates,” “Poor Shin Se Kyung,” “Girls’ Generation is more well known internationally than Shin Se Kyung, lol,” and more.
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.”
