Girls’ Generation – GALAXY SUPERNOVA PV Review

15 Sep


The Girls are back and bringing it from out of this world! Girls’ Generation have returned with an absolute belter of a J-pop tune that is going to be released on the 18th September 2013. Co-written by Junji Ishiwatari, who has previously worked with Superfly, alan, FT Island and SHINee, the song has an addictive chorus that’ll have you hooked from the first opening bars.

And while I could wax lyrical all day about how much I love the song, tonight I’m going to be reviewing the promotional video/music video for Galaxy Supernova. And I think the PV is an awesome accompaniment to the song.

SNSD - Galaxy Supernova PV Review

Nope, this isn't a remake of Gee!

Nope, this isn’t a remake of Gee!

The PV begins by referencing Girls’ Generation smash-hit, Gee where the band was decked out in jeans and white t-shirts. It quickly cuts to one of the style concepts – think a Gap advert meets 70s sci-fi and you’ll come close. The whole music video is set against an LED screen back drop which is very reminiscent to Justin Timberlake’s Rock Your Body.

It’s bright, flashy and in your face from the very start. All of the girls look flawless and the second outfit that they rock takes the retro sci-fi theme further and sees the group channel their best Betty Jetson looks.

SNSD - Galaxy Supernova PV Review

Flawless! The dance moves are on point. While the choreography looks deceptively simple, you can tell that it’s hard. The other thing is, of course, they never miss a beat. For me, SNSD (and any other SM Town artist), are absolute professionals. They don’t make mistakes. Ever. Not even a hair is out of place in this video!

Sooyoung – A star is born

The stand out performer in this music video is Sooyoung. She’s owning every frame like Angelina Jolie at the Oscars. Someone else taking centre stage? No worries! I’ll still steal the scene. Sunny giving her cutest aegyo? I will out fierce her and her new long hair. I am living for Sooyoung in this music video! Here are some of my favourite Sooyoung moments!

Everyone else is like, no no, look away - Sooyoung is staring you down.

Yes, bitches. Number 1.

Eat it.

Fierce! Sooyoung isn’t even my favourite member of Girls’ Generation but I have to admit that she is owning this music video like it was the juicest piece of bulgogi ever! I wave my white flag to you, Sooyoung, I wave it hard. (oT-T)尸

Highlights from the GALAXY SUPERNOVA music video

But that’s not to say that there aren’t also many other highlights. One of them is the crazy around the world dancing and the kicking parts. It’s generally awesome all round. But, for individual scene stealers, I present to you Jessica, Taeyon and Yuri.

Pew pew.

Pew pew.

Winking and pointing - too cute! ^^

Do you think Yuri could be a hand model if she ever quits SNSD?

Overall, I’m going to say this is an awesome PV from the girls – one of their best! They music videos are never crazy but with their styling, choreography, natural charm and absolute flawless delivery I can’t fault them. This is going right up there as one of my favourite SNSD songs so I salute you, galactic Girls’ Generation! Live long and prosper.

Girls’ Generation – I Got a Boy – Music Bank 4th January 2013 Review

13 Jan

The Girls are back! Girls’ Generation have returned with their infectious new song, I Got a Boy. Taken from their hit new album of the same name, I Got a Boy hit the top spot across all the music charts and became an All Kill instantly.

It’s been a while since the band had released a new Korean song so there was much anticipation for their new track and they didn’t fail to impress! Girls’ Generation have always been one of my favourite bands. They are flawless! They always bring their A game for every performance and I can never fault them.

Style & Staging

SNSD - I Got a Boy - Music Bank

I’m really enjoying SNSD’s style for their I Got a Boy promotions. I love the bubblegum pop colours that they’re using. It’s also really nice to see them bring a bit more edginess to their fashion. They’ve been rocking some fierce chic outfits recently – especially for their Japanese releases – but I’m really enjoying this more urban look.

But, as always, the girls give a little bit more for any S♥NE! Flaunting their toned stomachs was sizzling! SNSD hwaiting!

Overall rating for Style & Staging – 5 / 5 stars.


Whoa, where to start! The choreography for I Got a Boy is fierce! I think they’ve really stepped up their dancing skills for this song. I love their routines – Gee, Oh!, Genie are some of my favourite songs. I even learnt some of the Gee dance routine.

But I Got a Boy is taking it to the next level. It’s not just the dance routine, but also the whole staging and story that they tell. I Got a Boy has been criticised by some because the song has so many different elements. Just like the song, the dance routine is also made up of different dance elements – some cute moves (<3 Seohyun's aegyo) but also fierce dance moves.

Overall rating for Choreography – 5 / 5 stars.


Girls’ Generation are popular for their many charms – they can dance, perform, are charismatic and with some members have some of the most powerful vocals in K-pop. Taeyeon, Seohyun and Tiffany are all widely praised for their strong vocals.

Whilst I Got a Boy is more of a dance song, we still get to hear some pretty impressive vocals from Taeyeon, she has such a strong voice!

SNSD Hoot Inkigayo Win!

7 Nov

SNSD continue to shoot down the competition with their infectious new song, Hoot. Inkigayo has always been my favourite music show – I tend to think of it as the most prestigious as well so whenever an act wins an Inkigayo Mutizen I’m like whoa! Congratulations! Check out SNSD’s winning performance:

SNSD Hoot Music Bank Win

6 Nov

SNSD continue their promotions of their third mini-album, Hoot, with a win on Music Bank’s K-chart. The battle was closely fought with a lot of hot competition from bands like 2PM and 2AM but the most popular girl group in Asia continue to dominate with their come back! Can these girls do anything wrong? Seohyun is especially pretty ^_^ <3

SNSD – Gee Japanese MV Teaser

K-pop Workout Playlist!

14 Jul

So, I’ve not actually started my new exercise regime just yet but it’s definitely in the pipeline. I was meant to start last week but I caught a virus and was at home resting for two days. It was not pretty. Since then, I’ve not really had the time to start but I did wear my new trainers for the first time on Saturday – they gave me a blister! I was not impressed! These teething problems are to be expected though.

I’m approaching this exercise stuff from an easy going point of view – I want to do it for fun, not as a complete lifestyle change. I like carbs far too much to give them up (especially cake, I can’t imagine a life without cake; sometimes I’ll just have cake for dinner). Part of my relaxed approach is to have a fun workout playlist to listen to. I spent some time the other day creating what I think will be the perfect playlist – and it’s all K-pop songs! Hurrah!

K-pop Workout Playlist:

1. SNSD – Run Devil Run*
2. T-ara – I Go Crazy Because of You
3. Park Bom – You and I
4. Chae Yeon – Shake
5. SNSD – Girls’ Generation
6. T-ara – Bo Peep Bo Peep
7. Wonder Girls – 2 Different Tears (Korean Version)
8. Sandara – Kiss
9. SNSD – Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)
10. IVY – Touch Me
11. T-ara & Supernova – TTL Listen 2
12. SNSD – Gee

* = power song

I think it’s a pretty good playlist for working out. It’s got a lot of fast paced songs with lots of thumping, hard beats to really encourage you to push that bit further! A couple of songs are a bit slower, but they have really strong choruses. Like Park Bom’s You & I is a slower, mid-tempo ballad but all the emotion is going to spurn me on! The power song, SNSD’s Run Devil Run, is the song I’m going to listen to to give me a bit of a boost! At the moment it’s first to place but we’ll see how it goes.

Hopefully I’ll get to go on a run soon and this playlist will help me concentrate and focus. Jia you!


I know I’ve not actually posted this post yet but I have gone on a run! I’ve gone on two with varying degrees of success. I’m not try to run too hard and stress myself out or injure myself so when I run I take a lot of breaks and walk a lot too. The first one I ran with my friend who runs often and is very health conscious and he gave me lots of tips. The second run was hampered by my agonising hay fever which meant I couldn’t breathe properly and everyone knows breathing properly is crucial when doing exercise. However, the playlist worked really well! I did have to chuckle to myself though – Run Devil Run whilst running? The irony is not lost on me. I’ve not yet had a chance to run again but I might try to go tonight! Jia you! Cheer me on ;_; It’s far too much hardwork!

SNSD – Girls’ Generation 2010 Remix!

30 Apr

SNSD were, for a long time, my greatest K-pop love. When the world was going Wonder Girls crazy, I always loved SNSD – particularly for their song Girls’ Generation. A cover of Lee Seung-chul’s original, the 2007 hit catapulted the girls to fame in Korea. For some reason, the West fell in love with the Wonder Girls and not SNSD (despite SNSD achieving greater sales than the Wonder Girls). I guess it was the super catchy Tell Me dance phenomena.

SNSD’s version has been remixed for a new Lee Seung-chul best of remix album and… I quite like it! I think the reason why I fell in love with SNSD was because Girls’ Generation had such a strong 80s sound (being a cover of an 80s song and all). I love 80s music – I love it more than modern pop music so I really loved Girls’ Generation. This remix is great because it stays true to the original sound whilst also making it sound contemporary. Check out the song below~

SNSD – Run Devil Run MV

17 Mar

After teasing their fans with the previews of Run Devil Run, the SNSD girls have just released the mv! I love the mv, it’s so slick and the all look amazing. These girls are definitely at the top of the pack at the moment, even though I fly the flag for T-ara. A lot of girl groups are coming back strong (T-ara, Kara, After School, f(x)) but SNSD stand head and shoulders above them all. Check out their music video:

SNSD – Run Devil Run Released!

17 Mar

SM’s darlings, SNSD, have released the audio for the new song, Run Devil Run. No doubt this will be a mega hit!
