110223 "SNSD's Luxurious Skin is... All Thanks To Soaking Our Bodies"

Has there ever been a make-up model that became such a hot topic? This is about the 6 SNSD members (excluding Taeyeon, Seohyun, and Yoona) that became the new spring models for Dior. Before the official announcement from Dior, there were many discussions amongst netizens for and against this on forums and on Twitter saying, "Do designer brands fit SNSD?", and, "Why can't idols do it?" There were also comments reading, "With all their samchon fans, would SNSD be able to target people in their own age group?" This was an aftershock for becoming a model for a well-known, foreign make-up brand, which had previously been modeled by the best actresses of the time.

We met the girls at a recent photoshoot. Unlike others responses, the actual girls seemed to be taking it well. "Isn't a model bettering the product's image all they should do?" (Hyoyeon) "Just because we become the model, doesn't mean we're telling our fans to buy it. There's no reason for a samchon fan to buy women's make-up just because of us." (Sunny) It seemed like the atmosphere was becoming heavy, but Jessica made a comment. "Oh my, people were saying that? Did you guys know about it? Did you?" Everyone burst out laughing at that moment. We got to listen to them talk about beauty and fashion.

"We risk our lives to use the bathroom first"

110221 "I Just Wanna Wish"; SNSD's "Tell Me Your Wish" Draft Version Revealed

Recently, an MP3 of SNSD’s track “I Just Wanna Wish” has recently surfaced on the net, sending fans into a frenzy. While the title may sound unfamiliar, it is in fact a song very well known to SNSD fans.

“I Just Wanna Wish” is a draft version of SNSD’s hit 2009 song “Tell Me Your Wish (Sowoneul Malhaebwa)” that was recorded and used for the girls’ practice sessions – however the song was quickly revised shortly before its release and “I Just Wanna Wish” became the “Tell Me Your Wish” we all know and love today.

While most of the song remains the same, the lyrics in the chorus of the draft version are different from those of the final version, with a more mature and sensual style. Another major difference between the two versions of the song is the bridge, that starts about two and half minutes into the song, right before Tiffany’s iconic “DJ, put it back on”. The bridge incorporates more harmonization and highlights Jessica’s clear and sultry voice through her ad-libs; it also retains the repetitive beat similar to those often used in “Tell Me Your Wish” remixes.

Have a listen for yourself and see if you can spot the differences;
