‘Not so Little’ Sister

My girlfriend keep complaining about me how this blog is too ‘SNSD biased’. You all fellow SONE know what to do in this kind of situation right?

POST MORE ABOUT THE GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

Besides, what’s more appropriate than a post about soshi for the comeback stage of Imaginaction? Actually I already write a draft of this post since 2 months ago, but most of you know how busy I was these past few months, thanks to my newly earned job. Yes, I wrote this post at 28th June, celebrating the one and only Seo Joo Hyun 22nd birthday! Yayy!!!!

My Notebook Wallpaper. She's always a sight to behold between all my excel and word worksheet. :D

Hmmm, you all know to well about her already, since there are already heavy doses of admiration and compliment from me in this blog. So lets not go over that and go straight to the birthday wishes.

At first, just like the most male Seomates out there, I have this ‘ultra hyper delusion, which I want to have a girlfriend like seo hyun, and I’m gonna marry her one day. So I always look at her as unreachable crush, a destination, an idol, an unspoken love. But during these 2 years of k-pop infection, that feeling has changed. The ‘boy-girl love’ has transformed into a compassionate care (not that I know is this term exist). Watching her grow from one MV to another, from shy girl in Into the New World, to the shy gorgeus lady in Time Machine, I consider her like a little sister that I never had the chance to have. I’m really happy when she got an award, when she post a selca, and damn I was worried when I saw the sexy concept for I got a boy, more worried that she’ll get a role in a drama (I’m worried about the possibility of the cursed kissing scene), that feeling of anxiety you have as abig brother, watching his little sister keep growing and distant herself from you , a happy yet sad and lonely feeling.

Despite all that, You’re still and always will be the number 1 girl in the world Hyun. I start to eat vegetables, eat less junk food, always wear seatbelt, and apply many more upright lifestyle thanks to you. Whatever happens, I’ll support you till the end, whatever you;ll become,  A soshi, a generous cooking Mom, sweet potato farmer,  or a UN Secretary General. 😀

More of SooYoung and SeoHyun’s photos from ‘CeCi’ magazine’s March Issue

Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun and Sooyoung will be gracing the upcoming issue of ‘CeCi‘ magazine!

It will be the magazine’s March issue, and as Tommy Hilfiger’s new muses, here are SNSD’s lovely Seohyun and Sooyoung!



And the interview:


1. ‘I Got A Boy’ activities ended within a month’s time. What is your overall comment on it?
– It was the most fun album promotion up to now! Seems that those stages allowed me to enjoy and express myself freely. We exchanged eye contacts, changed gestures, the lyrics was interesting too… After taking off heels, I became a naughty girl.

2. You started the first concert of Japan tour last weekend, and is going around Japanese cities for the next 2 months.
– Comeback in January, and Japan tour in February, we are spending new year in an eventful way. Concert is where we always receive whole lot of energy, I look forward more to it in the future. (CECI: Fans in Korea will be sad.) Although the date isn’t fixed officially, we will perhaps meet Korean fans too at the concert!

3. Acting, stage performance, variety show… What is Seohyun’s next step?
– I want to try all. Because my life is still long. (laughs) Looking at Unnies’ challenges, I have my own dream too. If I can grab good chances, I want to try acting or musical.

4. I felt that Seohyun in TTS is stronger than SNSD’s Seohyun.
– Since it was the first unit activity, the burden was huge. But it was fun! As I stood on the stage, I had greater ambition. What’s amazing is that when we were 3, we missed the days with 9 members. And when we are 9, we also miss the stages with 3 members. Nothing can match the energy you have on a stage of 9, yet you can be wild and free when you have 3 members.

5. You are ‘disciplined maknae’ in SNSD, was your role in TTS different when you are with the 2 unnies?
– No, it’s the same. I’m always the maknae. Maknae who nags.

6. Some days ago you were said as the ‘maknae who drives unnies crazy’ in a show.
– They did that just for fun. Just like how they chit-chat usually. (CECI: Do they always make fun of each other?) Of course! Usually it’s even more serious. (laughs)


7. We want to hear your explanation of the ‘dining picture’ revealed some days ago.
– It’s a picture taken in our Japan dorm on Yuri unnie’s birthday. We dined together as a birthday party. I had a mask on in the picture and it’s quite embarrassing. At Japan, we stay in the same house and there were no individual activities, so we got closer. When we say let’s talk for 5 minutes, we always end up talking for 5 hours.

8. In the previous interview with Ceci you said that you want to experience more new stuffs, are you doing that now?
– Although I did not do it because I was busy, I enjoyed life. My skills to be mischievous improved and I’m getting more mischievous towards unnies. When I’m stressed I tend to want to rest or be free, recently I came to comprehend the way to enjoy while doing work. Back then I tried had to enjoy, but recently it got more natural. ‘Ah, I’m actually enjoying it’, I will be surprised by this. Unnies also tell me often that I have changed.

9. You are 23 years old now. Do you feel that you are a real adult (society person) now?
– After debut, I always feel that ‘I look forward to next year’, as I do this, I did not have a sense of time at all.  When we went to music programmes in the past it’s natural that we see 14-15 sunbaes (seniors), but this time, we saw no more than 4-5 sunbaes. At times like this, I will be surprised.

10. Now, SNSD is one of the ’14-15 sunbaes’ to your juniors.
– That’s why. And we are the really aged ones among them… (laughs)

11. Is there something that you will never want to lose not as Seohyun, but Seo Juhyun?
– I want to be Seo Juhyun who does something stubbornly when she says ‘let’s do it’. Ah, and people think that I’m a very ‘textbook’ type of person, I’m not. There are many ‘free’ sides of me. It’s something different between Seohyun and Seo Ju-hyun. I hope that Seohyun can become more like Seo Juhyun. And I’m moving towards that direction.

12. It’ll be March soon. When spring comes, what do you wish to do?
– Go for a drive. I obtained my driving license when I was 21. (CECI: Then you have to own an open car?) I guess so. But it’s okay if it’s a truck!

Day 17: Bittersweet

Seventeen again..

Al-Qariah is finished, now moving on to Al-Adiyat (war Horse)

Sucsessfully maintained a succession of 5 days mandatory prayer..three more days before a guaranteed place in Heaven (wait, where did i hear this before?) :p

Tarawih prayer also maintained at a steady pace, though still not everyday…


Now for the blogging part, Just a few hours ago, a very sweet, yet quite bitter news approached me. Yes, as you can see in the post below, SNSD is coming to Indonesia as a part of SM Town world tour, next September. It is one hell of a good news of course, for my goddess to step her feet in my country..

So this is the country where my fan who keeps post a blog about me lives…

But i don’t think i can make it to Jakarta…as unemployed as i am, i can’t afford the ticket…Based on empirical research on previous L’arc~en~ciel concert, to to rip a concert to its maximum sensation, you have to be in the best class available, purely because of the distance to the stage. When you’re in festival, you just can’t differentiate wether it’s SNSD or just the background dancer performing on the stage, and the big screen is your only hope. And i don’t want to stand for nearly 8 hours to see my idol performing on screen..i can do it back home..

The other reason is, it’s not the girl’s concert, it’s SM TOWN’s..and i’m not willing to sell my PS3 for Siwon, or Boa, or Yunho, and the other group…So for now, i just hope that the concert will be a blast, and SM decide to hold the girl’s concert some months later..^_^…

SNSD Korean

It’s now: Girl’s Generation!

Quote of the Day: “If you want everything, you’ll end up with nothing” -Lulu-

Happy Birthday Seo Joo Hyun! Saranghae!!

Disclaimer: This is a re-blogged post from SNSD Korean.com, all credits goes to “steve” as the author of this post.

Today is #SeoDay.


Birthdays are meaningful celebrations that many of us take for granted. They are a lot more than just a day where we receive gifts or hear praises. They mark a milestone in a person’s life, acknowledging the fact that we have lived another year, hopefully having achieved greater things.

Yet Birthdays also serve another important function. They separate one year from the next, allowing us to capture our lives into tiny slices that come together to create a greater whole – our life as individuals. When you think back on your last year, you remember who you met, what you did, the memories that defined that particular slice.

For the last five years, SONEs have watched Seohyun grow before our eyes. We have witnessed five slices of her life. Today on her 22nd Birthday, it seems appropriate to look back on these five years and to see how far our maknae has come.

 The First Slice – Seohyun Age 17

When Girls’ Generation first debuted in 2007, there were certain roles that each members were given. For Seohyun, she was handed the title of maknae, and on the surface, no one in Girls’ Generation could have fit the role any better (Sorry Sunny).

Seohyun was the definition of cute, a young girl who was obsessed with Keroro, loved school, and was awkwardly shy around others. She was the girl who pirouetted and danced with the paper airplane in Into The New World. Innocent, charming, and unique were words that seemed like an appropriate description of our maknae at the time.

During their debut year, Seohyun sat down for an interview with MTV Television and revealed a wish that she would go on to fulfill as time passed.

My first dream would be to work hard and turn everything into a Girls’ Generation.

In a candid talk with her fellow members, the maknae shared a rather meaningful and personal thought that gave us our first glimpse into the deep complexities that were already lying dormant underneath our innocent maknae. Something that would be a re-occuring theme as years passed – the fact that Seohyun has a maturity that surpasses her age.

My classmates study really hard, so I feel like I should too, but they were saying ‘You don’t have too,’ ‘Aren’t you busy?’ ‘Just give up you have another way.’ But I don’t think that’s right. There is no reason for me to give up. I didn’t quit high school.

Truly inspirational.

The Second Slice – Seohyun Age 18

For SONEs, mid 2008 to mid 2009 was a roller coaster ride of emotions. It was a year where we learned to appreciate the girls more than ever. At the beginning, the girls excelled with individual promotions with Yuri & Sooyoung landing roles in a Korean sitcom, Unstoppable Marriage, and Yoona starring in her first leading role in You Are My Destiny, winning actress and popularity awards.

On the other hand, this was also a time where Girls’ Generation went on their infamous 8-month hiatus. This time wasn’t easy for the members. Many of them had to stay in the dorm while others worked late into the night and made a name for themselves in the industry. Girls’ Generation did not release any new songs as nine, but that didn’t mean that it wasn’t a valuable year of growth. They learned through inactivity just how valuable it was to be able to promote together as a group. As the old saying goes, sometimes you have to be unemployed to appreciate work.

Which was exactly what happened when they reached star studded popularity through Gee, claiming first place on Music Bank for nine-consecutive weeks, selling hundreds of thousands of albums, capturing triple crowns and becoming true hallyu stars.

As a result they started appearing on shows like Horror Movie Factory, Star Golden Bell, and others – showcasing their variety skills and personalities for more interested audiences.

Naturally Seohyun got more comfortable with the cameras as time passed, and the girl who once needed encouragement to make impersonations on a radio show, started to get comfortable in her own skin. We witnessed as she became more open and candid about her thoughts and feelings, and saw her logical nature arise as she confronted her unnies on variety shows like Intimate Note. Her serious personality and disinterest in boys garnered attention, and she began to form a place in the mind of SONEs as The 4-dimensional one. Some fans even called her robotic, but this was just an awkward stage in her personal growth where she was still discovering what she wanted.

The Third Slice – Seohyun Age 19

This evolution continued to happen after her 19th birthday with the release of their mini-album Genie. Fans always joked about her seriousness as a maknae, her disinterest in boys, but this was a year where she also learned how to show off her humorous side. Let’s not forget her cameo on We Got Married as Taeyeon’s & Hyungdon’s father. Of course, this was also when she lectured Hyungdon about the vileness of hamburgers, and the dire long term consequences of ingesting them.

Yet there were also meaningful moments on Hello Baby when the girl’s fooled Seohyun on her own birthday with a hidden camera prank that brought her to tears. It was a way for them to teach her not to take things so seriously. Perhaps it was the cameras, but surely the members also played a role in helping her develop into a more fun loving person, no longer the only child, she found herself with 8 older sisters. This was also the year where she started her virtual marriage on We Got Married.

The Fourth Slice – Seohyun Age 20

For Seohyun, this was the year where she really started to stand out. It started with Seohyun being paired with fellow hallyu star Jung Yonghwa from CN Blue on We Got Married. This was where she really started capturing fans as they got an in-depth glimpse into her personality. She wasn’t robotic like everyone thought, she had a caring and innocent personality. She had a warm heart, and while she nagged and worried about things, it was clear how pure she really was. Her love for sweet potatoes became a hot issue over the course of the years and in the show, prompting Yonghwa to buy her an entire field. Fans gradually fell in love with the aptly named Goguma Couple, because of their contrasting personalities. Seohyun was the mature maknae with the love for childish things and health products and Yonghwa was the choding rocker that wanted piggyback rides. It was interesting to watch the two interact, and share personal tidbits about their thoughts on life and love.

But this year was also significant because Seohyun really became one of the more central members in Girls’ Generation when they debuted with the Hoot concept in late 2010. She was always one of the main vocals, but this time the spotlight really centered around her, in which she got her own solo with the James Bond spy concept. She oozed with sex appeal, and this was when SONEs around the world started to realize that SeoBB was starting to become Seolady.

The Fifth Slice – Seohyun Age 21

In many ways, this past year was perhaps the most significant one for her on a personal and professional level. It all started with The Boys, in late 2011 – an album that really helped Girls’ Generation reach a new level of success as they debuted internationally.

Seohyun showcased fierceness and charisma during their The Boys promotions – a stark contrast from the girl from Into the New World. She was no longer a modest rookie, or a shy maknae – instead she was a maknae that was worthy of admiration because of her capability to do almost anything and succeed.

At the 2011 MAMA awards, Seohyun stunned SONEs everywhere with her beauty – making us realize that she was now more confident with her body. Fans were pleasantly surprised by her transformation, from the baby of the group to another one of the girls. She started ruining bias lists, transforming more SONEs into Seomates.

Seohyun continued to shine on variety shows, appearing on Strong Heart where she shared her experience of meeting her personal hero Ban-Ki Moon – The UN Secretary General. Her admiration for him displayed a maturity beyond her years, and she talked about her personal dreams of wanting to make the world a better place. She was recently appointed the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN 2012 expo in Yeosu and continues to get involved with philanthropic activities as a member of Girls’ Generation.

She identified her ideal type on The Beatles Code, picking a man with values and morals over one with looks. On Kangta’s Pasta E Basta, Taeyeon even revealed that Seohyun wanted to start meeting boys. She impressed with her intellect on Million Dollar Quiz Show, being the first idol to answer all the questions correctly winning the prestigious prize.

As an artist, Seohyun showcased her dynamic vocals more this year than any other year. With a sub-unit group in TaeTiSeo, she captured award show trophies and gained recognition for her individual talents. She sang an OST track for Yuri’s drama, Fashion King, and even did a collaboration with Korean ballad singer Yoon Gun, making it a busy year for her professionally. However, fans were delighted to see and hear more sides of her. All this was really just a culmination of her hard work and determination to make everything into a “Girls’ Generation.”

A New Slice…

As Seohyun turns 22 years old, it marks another year – another slice in the cake that will become her life.  As SONEs we have the luxury of getting a brief glimpse into her accomplishments and can watch her as she matures into a lady. But if there’s one theme that we’ve seen from the past five years it’s that you should never doubt what the maknae is capable of. Because there’s one thing that hasn’t changed since Seohyun’s debut – the determination to achieve her dreams.

For everyone here at SNSD Korean:

Happy 22nd Birthday to Girls’ Generation Seohyun!

Now for a few sentences from me: Aside from being my ideal woman, and the idol that i worshiped, I also consider Hyun as a very very distant little sister that i never have. It makes me happy seeing how she grows up into a fine lady, but it kinda sad at the same time, knowing that she’s becoming more and more mature (just like a parents feeling when their kids start to turn into rebellious teenager..kekekeke). Any way, happy birthday Seo hyun, oppa always wish you all the best in the world, hope you always surrounded by love and care from your family and 8 sisters, stay healthy, keep your straight and law abiding personality, and thanks for always be there whenever i need a boost of spirit. Hwaiting!
