Due to the intense interest surrounding a supposed “leaked demo” of SNSD’s new single, representatives of SM Entertainmentwere forced to release a statement in order to clarify the issue.
Recently, a video was posted on YouTube under the caption “SNSD 3rd full album demo song leaked“. Netizens discovered that a song called “Hiccup“ by Andrew Jackson was listed under SNSD’s name on the Korea Music Copyright Association website. It led them to visit Andrew Jackson’s MySpace page, and after hearing the track, fans began to believe that SNSD’s demo song had indeed been leaked.
A SM Entertainment representative explained, “This song will not be included in the album that SNSD will be releasing in Korea soon. The future of this song has not yet been confirmed.”
In the end, the supposed ‘leaked demo’ was only a track buoyed up by speculation and rumors. At this time, the video has been erased at SM’s request.
