►►SNSD’s big wish for 2011?
There is nobody that dares to block the way of ‘national girl group’ SNSD. Following the previous year, SNSD has once again taken ‘This Year’s Star Daesang’. They also took ‘This Year’s Artist Award’. But for 2011, what is the girls’ biggest wish?
This past year, SNSD released one hit after another starting with ‘Oh!’, onto ‘Run Devil Run’ and ‘Hoot’. They also made their Hallyu advancement with their debut in Japan back in August.
On the 25th, they looked like they could not believe it when they were informed of winning the awards. Although they have grown into great stars that have taken over Asia, they were shy, cute girls off stage. We heard the thoughts of the ‘9 girls’ who had an impressive year.
(8) Yoo Jae Suk, Kim Tae Won, Lee Kyung Kyu, Kim Hye Soo, Kim Nam Joo, Lee Bum Soo, Yoon Jong Shin, Kang Dong Won, Big Bang, BEAST, Ha Ji Won, Shin Se Kyung, Song Joong Ki, 2NE1, Supreme, Jung Yong Hwa, Kang Ho Dong, KARA, Park Jin Young, Jung Bo Suk, Nam Ja Eui Ja Kyuk, Moon Geun Young, Park Kallin, Miss A, Han Hyo Joo, MoDeun KulGoRub.

▲You were chosen for the star daesang. How do you feel?
Jessica=(while cheering) Yeah~!
Seohyun=I can’t believe it.
Sunny=We can’t believe that we were chosen for such a meaningful award, despite us being such young ‘girls’.
▲You earned lots of love this year. What do you think is main reason behind your popularity?
Taeyeon=I think [the public] sees our everchanging concepts on stage as being fresh. After seeing our changed appearances, they also anticipate what our next concept will be.
Seohyun=They see us slowly growing up and maturing positively. I think they watch how happy we are on stage during a performance, and feel that same happiness with us.
▲It was a hectic year. What was the most memorable moment?
Jessica=Our first performance at our Japan showcase is the most memorable.
Taeyeon=That’s right. It was a fresh feeling. How could fans know and cheer for us like that in a country that we were going to for the first time? I still can’t believe it when thinking about it now.
Seohyun=Being able to set a new record in a new place was also a factor that made the team members get closer.
Sooyoung=For me, it was when Tiffany was out of the group due to her injury. It was the first time a member left her place for such a long time. I think we were able to realize just how much we love one another after Tiffany’s absence.
Tiffany=I was also very thankful for my members worrying about me. I was able to feel many new things. I don’t want to get hurt or sick from now on.
▲Do you have any plans for 2011?
Seohyun=We had an ‘Asia tour’ this year. It was another special feeling meeting with fans outside of Korea. In order to meet with even more fans overseas, we want to have a world tour. We want to become a boastful SNSD that spreads knowledge on Korea.
Taeyeon=We want to greet everybody with nothing but good news. Please don’t forget that 2011 will also be ‘girls’ generation’.
