    Have you seen the comments on the teaser board?  SONEs are actually spazzing wild over how great the teaser is thus far.  If anything, I think this is what SONEs deserve. They seem pleased and satisfied in the same way they were pleased and satisfied with Flower Power.  Why give them something that is beyond their standard? Also, I wouldn’t expect anything that is outside SM’s MV making capabilities.  New boxes over here, please.

    Not hating but… Tiffany’s part just cracks me up so bad. I saw a gif of it on tumblr and was like..”wtf is she staring at and why is she so stiff” 0:44 is where I just can’t help but laugh. I don’t really know what it is.. but she was just staring so blankly.. ahh I died. Not a fan of SNSD but I did like the dance version teaser.

  • happy_slip

    I think I’ll like this better than The Boys. It’s fun, they seem to be dancing “dancing” again if you know what I mean, and from the teasers it looks like they’re comfortable with the change their group has made this time around. No RDR/The Boys awkwardness thank goodness. I hope the actual song and music video continue emulating that.

    I’m on the fence with whether I should take the A-YO GG part seriously or not. I’m leaning more on not giving so much importance about it though, because when I did that the first time I saw the teasers this “new vibe” of theirs felt totally off. I’m taking this as a girlier version of what f(x) is doing and leave it at that. BTW, is it just me, or does anyone else find that their photo concept feels like a combination of f(x)’s Electric Shock and Super Junior’s Mr. Simple?

    So far, I think I’m skipping the drama MV and look forward to watching the dance version instead.

    The track in this teaser isn’t “I Got A Boy.” It’s some other track that’s part of their album.

    Oh and SM just released the dance version teaser with “I Got A Boy” on it. The song’s sounding okay, the styling is reminiscent of f(x) and 2NE1, but holy hell I’m just happy the choreography’s looking tight and strong and they’re actually dancing in sneakers.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LL4QDJLVFDT2RDIZYBALSE75JE angel29

      Thanks.  I just checked.  f(x), 2NE1 and 4Minute style circa 2009.  And GLAM also released a teaser which I saw earlier.  Same feel.  Hayi was styled similarly and YG’s new girl group might also have a funky concept, I’m guessing.  So likely this will be the feel of kpop for 2013?

  • http://twitter.com/nippaul10 P▲ul

    I Got a Boy is a song that tells us that SNSD also got that ‘swag’ which I can’t really see except whenever I see my lovely Hyoyeon. 

    • beatrice1234

      and yuri! :)

    • moua23

      Sorry SNSD has no swag. The girls are wayyy too nice/cute. But Hyoyeon maybe has like a tiny bit of swah, but like i said the teaser made me lol hard

  • beatrice1234

    I liked the drama teaser song. Maybe its because Im Korean and Ive always liked sweet songs like that but yeah… who knows what the actual mvs will be like. It seems like we’re always expecting the worst now because its coming from SM but the dance teaser really got my hopes up for their comeback! 

  • Chocho268

    The teaser for the dance version was fun but it had that ‘I’ve seen this type of concept before and it was done much better’ feel to it. The song was catchy but sounded a bit recycled, IMO. Also, the girls looked a bit awkward and unnatural except for Hyoyeon(this girl looks stunning lately!) and Yuri-these two really shined.

    Idk, so far I’m not too impressed. Maybe I’m just expecting too much from them seeing they’re the top female kpop group and all?

  • http://twitter.com/sebsobandsky Sabah

    I too am hoping for complete 180 degree twist when the real thing comes out.  If you look close enough, there’s already a hint that something might be brewing on the horizon BECAUSE it’s the same guy. I mean this guy is seven-timing the tight knit group that is SNSD!  Here’s hoping for some serious karma coming his way courtesy of sisterhood!

  • itsmysunshine

    Judging from the teasers that I’ve seen so far, I kinda like it. The MV looks so colorful, the song sounds catchy and the dance looks different. But again, I won’t put my hopes too high, because we know how SM can completely troll the fans. 

  • Streby

    Their styling looks very similar to f(x)’s general styling and even the teaser sounds a lot like the electro pop stuff f(x) is synonymous with, but whatever it is, it cant be worse than ‘The Boys’ where they didn’t even bring a single boy out.

  • takasar1

    just like every other snsd song (or big bang, or suju song for that matter) it will probably be a hit yet after watching the dance teaser for what i presume is the title track i must say that i am still not impressed. the choreography is nothing special and chorus seems awfully generic. plus, what in the hell is up with the outfits?! i am sure someone else has re-visited that look before.

  • ersby

    I should be doubtful. I always find SNSD’s Korean albums a bit disappointing, I think that releasing an old video was a mistake, and I’m not hugely keen on the teaser ads BUT both “Twinkle” and “Girls’ Generation II” were really good albums. Hardly any filler, and they had a definite sound and a feeling that ran through them from start to finish. It felt like a complete body of work, and not a bunch of songs thrown together. I hope that this bodes well for this release.

    That’s because they have no identity as a group.  As individuals, plenty, that’s why I love the girls.  As a group, I dont listen to their songs besides the first time when watching the video.

  • http://twitter.com/Myrmicinae Brendicienta

    Since when you are too old to like your boyfriend to do cute cheesy stuff for you? 

    • worlddomination

      Heh. I know Im never too old for that ;) That teaser didnt bother me too much tbh. Most of the scenes looked like cheesy things you’d do on a date, whether youre 15 or 25. 

      • http://twitter.com/Myrmicinae Brendicienta

        Mi sisters boyfriend is 32, and he always invites her to dinner, buys her candies, and ennormous stuffed animals, and all those “chessy” things you see on this MV, and she loves it. I would love it, too, and I`m 26. 

    • wickedwondrous

      Agree. And it totally doesn’t automatically cheapen or go against a woman’s independence and individuality at all. I can be a highly independent and competent woman, who can think and make decisions for myself, and still enjoy my boyfriend being sweet to me. There are some powerful women who eschew those kinds of stuff because they think it undermines their independence. There are those who choose to be spoiled rotten by their other halves. It all boils down to preference–and the true independent, powerful women recognize that they have this choice. As long as they’re happy, right?

  • http://www.facebook.com/karheng279 Aaron Ho

    As much as I want SNSD to experiment on new concepts, finding a completely fresh new concepts that will fit all 9 members would be tough .Thus is why the recycled materials over and over again because it fits them well, given their wonderful track record.

    Personally I won’t mind the same generic stuff from SNSD as a whole every once in awhile, but I would really love to see more subunit actions like TTS which gives them more flexibility in exploring more wider range of concepts. Or even solo work like how KARA did. 

    One could only dream~~ 

  • a_woot

    Wow. Did the author even do research? It’s been stated before that the song used in the drama teaser IS NOT I Got A Boy and is another track off the album. I know most of SB writers aren’t super SONES but at least take the time to do basic research so you can avoid statements like “oh i hope i got a boy doesn’t sound like the song in the teaser. soooo not a new concept. same old snsd”. And I’m certain some album tracks will be their cutesy pop sound because that’s what’s familiar, can’t go about alienating old fans while trying to get new ones with new concepts. And SNSD have already been in the industry for 5 years, how many super new concepts can they go about trying WITHOUT seeming like they’re copying another group’s image/concept? In the world of kpop and netizens, getting too close to another group’s image/concept can result in backlash…and that’s not a risk some companies are willing to take, especially when their first priority is generating a profit.

    • Chuvuvee

      It doesn’t matter if the background music is the titled song “I Got a Boy” or not, the author was obviously critiquing the naivete and wide-eyed innocence they portrayed that are too old for them.

      • a_woot

        Oh wow. I must have been living under a rock for ages. When did innocence (wide-eyed or not) have an age limit?

        • Chuvuvee

          Don’t ask me. Ask the author. I was simply pointing out the point of this article.

  • Miyuki

    Honestly, after watching their dance teaser, I have to say their choreography is freaking awesome and their style is freaking horrible… They look like rookies. I’m so disappointed… ._.

  • http://twitter.com/kmi_chan Camille カミーユ

    I think what they did with TaeTiSo was a good idea, someone stated before that changing the entire concept might not fit all of them because they are 9 and they have different styles. This is why I would love to see more sub units, for example I really like what Hyohyeon did with maxstep (even though it wasn’t a SNSD sub unit) because it was fierce and powerful and it totally fit her.
    You’re right, SNSD are the queens of Kpop and they can sell whatever they want so why not make some changes and do some sub units.
    As said previously by a_woot, of course SM wants to make profit and don’t want to take a risk but seriously we’re talking about SNSD, I’m sure they’ll have millions of sones ready to stand for them even though they face criticism.
    In my opinion they could gain a lot of fans if they were changing their strategy because let’s face it : it’s getting more and more awkward seeing them acting like 15 yo teenager when they are all almost 24.

  • http://twitter.com/Similaresoldofa Mauro Zapata

    Come on, it’s SNSD, so they’ll be surprising us with something unexpected, even though it might not be what the author of the entry wants to see (that is, a MissA independendent women like concept). I agree it’d be great to see them stick with the TTS approach, but there’s no way to be sure that’s what SM want’s for them. That being said, I still believe it’s going to be somewhat different from previous “cute side” releases.

    • Chuvuvee

      Umm, why would it’s being SNSD mean that there will being something unexpected? I thought it’s clear that they usually stick to their aegyo comfort zone.

      • http://twitter.com/Similaresoldofa Mauro Zapata

        That was just wishful thinking, still i don’t find it hard for them to come with some solid come back that doesn’t rely solely on aegyo moments.

  • moua23

    The song sounds ok, but after the boys, ill lower my expectations. Can i just say I LMAO through the whole dance teasers. They look so awkward! And theyre tryibg wayyyy too hard, even though i think theyre too old to do cute stuff they should never attempt the “gangster” concept, because it doesnt suit them at all. Oh gosh i have a feeling they will have “raps” tooo. Nonononono. The choreo looks good but groups like F(x) or Miss A should’ve gotten it, they can pull it off better because surprise all of the members cab dance excluding Suzy, but all seriousness 4/9 of SNSD can dance, wrong choreo for this group. Nonetheless Ill be waiting to see, i wont hold back my laughter, cricticsm, and praises. But this article, i love it, describes my like/dislike of SM and SNSD.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/XF6O76UTFBPUYUXR6LSYEX6QYE Tommy

      Suzy can dance better than half the girls in KPOP. But she’s just not up there with Fei, Min, and Jia which make her look like she can’t dance.

  • k_db

    Judging from the Dance Teaser, The song wont be my cup of tea.

    But… SM teasers are SM teasers, The teaser and actual song are likely not cut from the same clothe.

  • VividlyLivid

    Again, feeling like I’m in the minority here…
    I think this entire concept is different than what we’ve seen from them before. Really, the last time we saw something this colorful and pop-y was with Gee and Oh. I Got A Boy doesn’t sound like bubblegum pop judging from the teaser, in my opinion. It basically just seems like everyone’s harping on the fact that this will be a regurgitated GG song instead of the concept. Both are equally important, but come on.
    Though I do agree that the drama teaser was a bit infantile, it doesn’t bother me. The Boys wasn’t infantile, at least not the title track. So I won’t complain about having a dash of baby GG.

  • Jasper_SB

    I still think the concept would have been better suited for a SNSD subgroup a la TaeTiSeo. I’d imagine there’d be MUCH less complaints if only the likes of Hyoyeon, Yuri, and Sooyoung were to work with this concept.

    And I just realized that SNSD is probably the only group I wouldn’t mind a dubstep break from. Not because they’d be able to integrate it properly, but because it’ll likely come with a Hyoyeon dance break which I could certainly use more of. 

  • 271828

    I’m waiting for the plot twist that is the faceless man is gay. I had my doubts when he was drinking tea with Yoona but seriously what straight guy knows how to paint nails/likes his nails to be painted?
    Or maybe the guy is actually a girl.
    Seriously though, my only wish for this song is for AYO GG to be the only thing Tiffany says. Stick to singing please! SNSD used to be the only popular group with no rapping which is why I loved them but now….

  • severely

    I think you’re overstating their power. SM has the ability to make SNSD break new ground… if that’s what SM did. SM — who I appreciate for what they do, as they are very good at it — makes solid, inoffensive groups that make music that caters to the current music tastes. SNSD, themselves, are not in a position to break new ground unless SM decides to deviate from their current standard. And SM has always taken a “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude.

    That being said, SM pretty famously doesn’t use the actual title track in their teasers for their title track.

    IDK. I think you’re reading too much into it. Especially since the dance teaser that followed the drama teaser isn’t cutesy at all.

  • asianromance

    I wish the title was “I got a man” instead of “i got a boy”.  I hope the overly sweet teaser is being ironic.  In real life, I think you can be cute and do cute-coupley things at age 25 and get shy at simple gestures of affection without coming off like a middle-schooler.  Lessen the pink and give the girls some more real-life appropriate clothes.  In real life, these girls would be going on their dates after a morning spent doing their laundry and picking up groceries. 

  • samlun100

    PLEASE NO MORE CUTE AND INNOCENT CONCEPT FOR SNSD.
    They did that for so long and should move on to become more like women in their 20s.
    They’re no longer teenagers to act cute and innocent.
    I hope “I got a boy” will not disappoint me. And please Tiffany, do not rap.

  • wickedwondrous

    But that’s just the teaser. SM has a history of churning out teasers that are very different from the actual product being “teased.” I don’t think you can judge the message they are trying to portray based on a minute-long sample of a music video superimposed with a background song (which is, admittedly, cute) that’s not even the actual song for which said scenes were filmed. It’s just taking everything out of context. We don’t even know the lyrics of the song, or the context of the scenes. I think it’d be more prudent to wait for the actual single and music video to drop before forming any opinions on just what SNSD’s message is with their comeback song.

    I have respect for Girls Generation, being that their one of the main reasons and inspirations behind other girl groups, I however have never been a fan of theirs, for the simple reason that I, like the author find their image “too cheeleader”. I understand they have roles too play, but I just can’t take them seriously. NO disrespect, I know their fandoms are tenacious, I like girl groups like 2NE1 and BEG. They have edge, GG are cute, but maybe that’s the point.

  • shannie4888

    This article was amazing. I feel the exact way about SNSD. I know that they live in Korea and the cute, innocent thing works, but they need to have a concept that is mature. It doesn’t have to be risque, but SNSD has the power to really stand out. They are the number 1 girl group in Kpop by miles, so show us how you plan to really keep that title . They are also venturing out into the international market, where they’ll have to lose most of the nauseatingly cute shtick. 

    This is the time to try out a more fierce, yet sexy concept in preparation for stepping out of their comfort zone (Asia) and into the US market. This is why I really despise SM’s marketing tactics. You have rookies taking chances and YG has always given his idols an edge, yet here SM stands in this little bubble or a brightly lit room, regurgitating the same concepts over and over again because they know that it’s safe. 

    Groundbreakers need to take risks. People like this stand the test of time. I’m happy for SNSD and I really like the girls, but they need to be able to stretch their wings without worrying that they’ll fall. This is the only way for them to keep reinventing themselves with each new comeback. I shouldn’t judge based on the teaser, so I’ll just say that I hope this is not overly cute. I hope it’s filled with fun and flair, and that those cute gestures were mostly in the teaser. A little cuteness here or there, but a video chock full of them is not gonna cut it for me.

    • http://ofstrangersensibilities.blogspot.com Joy Of Stranger Sensibilities

      I understand the need for aegyo but Japan has kawaii culture too, yet you see a substantially more mature concept for SNSD’s promotions there. I think a better explanation would be the comparatively lukewarm reception ‘The Boys’ had compared to the overwhelming popularity of their cutesier hits ‘Oh’ and ‘Gee’. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/marshmellowbelly Christina Xu

    go look at their newest teser. they aren’t really that cute anymore.( though jessica and her cat ears are there and i saw some cute motions in there. -_-) i think sm went and chose a funky concept for snsd. and the dance seems to have a bit of tutting and some hip hop styles incorporated to it. thus snsd is driving towards a bit more mature and sexy concept, but still remains fresh in a way. i like it, becuase it shows that you don’t really “dark” or wear darker colored clothing to be sexy. (but i agree with you i don’t like the story teaser D:)
    i think snsd is going a bit out of their comfort zone in terms of the newest teaser, seeing how their choreography style seems more complex and difficult compared to gee and genie, and the boys. snsd seems to be developing their dancing skills a bit more.
    The clothing style is REALLY different for girls generation O.O seeing as how their previous
    clothes weren’t as daring as these. gee and genie, oh, paparazzi, mr. taxi, didn’t have such complex styles incorporated into the outifts themselves and were simple, which is snsd’s trademark. the boys went a bit out of what snsd usually wears, but the designs weren’t complex.
    i got a boy is ENTIRELY different from what snsd usually presents.
    they have heavy embellishments on their clothing, and wear much more masculine clothing,(compared to what i saw before.) becuase i saw lots of sweatpants, t shirts, jackets, and hats. (sunny with her motherf***ckers hat) and the clothes themselves are more daring compared to clothes in say gee or the boys.
    so i’d say snsd is starting to step out and move forward.

    i have high hopes with this comeback.especially the dance routine. after all, NappyTabs choreographed it. For those of you who dont know they’re renowned hip hop choreographers from so you think you can dance. It should’ve costed SM a bucketload of money to work with them. They make amazing dance routines.try and look it up. even if the concept is still a little bit too cute for a hiphop routine but i think the dance version is gonna make up for it though.

    oh GG is actually my first encounter to kpop. Really digging the cutesy era Oh and Gee. I appreciated they tried being more mature. Still accepted the Run Devil Run dark soshi concept. But immediately turn down with “the boys”. It just weird. I think they can try the TTS concept. It fun, cute but not over, and quite sassy for more mature image. Just burn the prom dress with leather legging please. The funky gangsta thing imo just really weird for SNSD. WTH with Sunny’s motherf**ker’s hat?? You ain’t any G-Dragon yo!! If SM really do their usual pattern as for the teaser is not actually tease you and you’ll get completely different for the real one. I hope I can expect the comeback will go well. And I really hope Tiffany won’t rap. Just because you speak English doesn’t mean you can rap for sake

    Agreed. Though Korean culture tends to be more conservative, I think this is pushing it a bit far. Unfortunately, although the previews aren’t 100% reflective of what appears in the MV, a majority of what is in the previews does show up SOMEWHERE in the MV, which saddens me because it seems SM is still clinging to the cute concept to play it safe.

    Disappointing, but I can’t exactly say I’m surprised.

    That being said, I absolutely hated Dancing Queen and I Got a Boy. Maybe I’ve come to expect a lot of them, but I would hope that a video called Dancing Queen would, at the very least, have some distinctive dance move, if not a great dance in general. They had the running move in RDR, the crab walk in Gee, the driving thing in Mr Taxi and the legs in Genie, but Dancing Queen’s dance had nothing memorable about it. I also kept thinking of Duffy, and the whole bubblegum pop version of Mercy didn’t work for me. Maybe it’s just me. :

    For both videos, it was like they cloned Hyuna into nine girls. The outfits… I think they tried to go for a cross between cute and sexy, and ended up with colourful, tacky and cheap. The best part of Dancing Queen was when they were all in white tees and jeans. Did they really make it look like Taeyeon had her red undies peeking out in I Got A Boy? Was that necessary?

    Bah, I’m probably going to be branded a hater for this. Gonna get a drink before I get crucified with, “NOBODY CARES WHAT YOU THINK,” etc.

    Well “I Got a Boy” has been released and I’m not impressed with the song. I’ve been slacking off on listening to the album, but I’ll give it a shot. I can’t wait for Seoulbeats critique of the song. My fingers are in anticipation of replying.

    This song is a mess. It’s like 5 different songs cut and pasted together with audacity. And yes that mini-army of chicks are OVER the age of 21 (in regular years Korean years, hell even dog years). Shouldn’t they be singing about a MAN and not a boy?

    I honestly don’t mind the cutesy concept for SNSD. I wish they’d release stuff that was similar to their Into the New World and Oh! albums. Their new tracks are some sort of weird mish-mash between trying to be hardcore/sexy/edgy and cute. It does not work. And they should stop trying to rap because that’s just not them. I liked how they’re one of the few groups out there that didn’t have a designated rapper, but now it seems like they have 3 or 4 who aren’t exactly great. And no matter how hard they try, they will never have as much swag as someone like CL or even, dare I say, HyunA. 

    I did like Twinkle, though. That was a good way to mix it up for them and they should do a similar concept for the entire group if they’re looking for a way to be more mature.

    I’ll be waiting for an entire review of I Got a Boy from SB. It’s a pretty mediocre album in my opinion, possibly worse than The Boys which I thought was random enough.
