The girl band Girls Generation has been formed in 2007. But they started to have a real success in 2009. At that time, they really started to become the most appreciated girl band in Korea and then started to have a lot of success in Japan as well. Today, they became a girl group considered as a model for all the others and they are definitely adored in Korea. They won the respect in the music industry because of their talent and their colourful music. They also have strong choreography which are always nice to watch. They are now known all around the world and it sounds normal as they are the pride of their nation.
It’s really nice to see that all the members are still in the band, they are still all together and seem to have a good friendship. They are thankful to their fans and don’t miss a chance to show their love to them. They are 9 members, it’s quite a lot, and it’s probably hard to have a part of the spotlight for all of them, but they seem satisfied with what they have. First member of course, the leader and main vocalist Taeyeon, she seems to be calm and mature. Yuri, a vocalist and lead dancer seems very quiet. Yoona, also a vocalist and lead dancer. Seohyun who is the youngest and also the lead vocalist. The other lead vocalist is Tiffany who can also speak english very well and has a lot of charisma. Hyoyeon who is the main dancer and vocalist, but can also rap. Another lead dancer and vocalist is Sooyoung. Sunny, a lead vocalist and last but not least, Jessica who is speaking English very well too, she is the other main vocalist.
They have made a lot of releases in Korea but also in Japan. As usual, we will only mention the Korean discography. Their first release was in 2007 with a full length album „Girls Generation“. After that, they waited until 2009 to release two mini albums „Gee“ and „Tell me your wish“. After that year and the success that was starting pretty well, they started to be more active. In 2010, they released first a full length album „Oh!“ and a mini album „hoot“. In 2011, a new full length album was out „the boys“, same name as the famous hit song. That’s when they started to include rap in their songs and got a very good response for it. In 2012, they were very active in Japan and made a lot of Japanese releases during that year. And of course, they recently came back with a new full length album „I got a boy“ this year 2013.
We can clearly see an evolution in their music. At first, they didn’t put any rap part in their songs, it was maybe also a bit too cute and girlie. But after a few years, they really started to improve their music, they integrated rap and the sound was way better. They became original and started to show their difference more and more. Now they have their sound, their style and we cannot miss when it’s Girls Generation who is playing. It’s always nice to see a real evolution, you need to improve all the time and that’s what they do, that’s why we like them. Even though, they don’t particularly need support as they are known all over the world, Japako Music wants to still show it’s support to Girls Generation and keep on promoting them anyway for their amazing music. Even though, a lot of you probably know about Girls Generation, if you didn’t check them out already then do, if you do know them, you can just enjoy listening to them once again by checking our selection of music videos!
