Following the announcement of some Stateside promotions for “The Boys,” it’s been revealed that Girls’ Generation has made an appearance on the Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart, which includes “the week’s top-selling albums by new or developing acts.”
“The Boys” currently sits at #22 as a debut track for Girls’ Generation. The album is also asterisked for having the greatest airplay and sales gains this week.
In addition to the Heatseekers Albums appearance, “The Boys’ also placed 2nd on Billboard’s World Albums chart. Even without any formal promotions for their album in the U.S., Girls’ Generations is rapidly climbing the charts and gaining recognition.
Although it isn’t an appearance on the main chart for Billboard, breaking out into any of the charts is a feat worthy of recognition. Other than when SM Town came to New York City and sold out Madison Square Garden, along with an exclusive interview for MTV K, the girls haven’t done many promotions for their U.S. debut album. With these accomplishments and a unexpected slew of promotions in the United States coming up this week, U.S. SONE’s have a lot to look forward to and cheer about.

A post that was written at some point in the past by the older brother of Girls’ Generation member Taeyeon has drawn attention.
The post entitled “Taeyeon’s Older Brother’s Photo, Handsome Gentleman” was posted on an online community site’s message board along with photos.
In the photos, Taeyeon’s elder brother Kim Jiwoong, who is 25 years old, is shown to have very distinct facial features and shows a cuteness similar to his sister. A message was also left for Taeyeon.
He wrote a heartwarming message that read, “Ever since I got into middle school, you were already mature and, at least in thought, you were like the eldest sister of the house, determined and professional. Even when you were living far away on your own, you always had a stoic and level-headed mindset that always made me bow my head to you (editors note: in respect).”
He continued, “My confidence in you is at 200%. You are my little sister, so I believe that you will do well. Your family is always standing by your side. I love you.”
Netizens commented, “Taeyeon’s brother has a soft spot for his little sister. I am jealous of Taeyeon for having such a brother and of Jiwoong for having such a sister,” and “As expected, Taeyeon has always been a well-mannered girl from the start. I am very jealous of the siblings’ relationship.”
