101231 SNSD; callused feet and a total wreck

To SNSD, 2010 was just spectacular. The name 'Girls' Generation' is not just a girl group's name, but a trend now. It is a waste of time talking about fashion and cultural trends without mentioning them. Their popularity already went across the border long ago. After a month and a half of their debut in Japan, they took over the Oricon chart in their first attempt and are now going back and forth like it's their home.

SNSD has also shown their great power in Korea, winning the 'Disk Daesang' at the 2010 Golden Disk Awards, and also won the best awards at the Melon Awards and at KBS Gayo Dae Chukjae. Like they've shouted early in their debut, right now definitely is Girls' Generation. "This year has been the happiest, but now we feel great responsibility and pressure with the name, SNSD. We worry about how great we need to be to stay where we are today. We looked back at the happy times of 2010 with the girls and listened to their New Year wishes.
-Did you guys have an after party after winning the Golden Disk Daesang?

"We couldn't do anything big because we were busy. We ate pork belly at a barbecue restaurant and talked about this and that. We were happy that we won the award, but the pressure became bigger as well. We thought about why we are loved. We recently feel that it is so much harder to stay where we are, and because we're SNSD, we can't just do anything; the only way is to show great performances that fit our name." (Taeyeon)

-Tiffany wasn't at the scene due to the leg injury? Did you watch it on TV by yourself?
