An old video of a hilarious conversation between the members of Girls’ Generation has been becoming popular amongst fans.
In the video, which was taken during a past photoshoot for a fashion brand, Yoona was caught making a hilarious joke on Taeyeon.
While Yoona was checking Taeyeon’s clothes and making sure it looked good for the photoshoot, she jokingly dissed the leader’s body by saying, “So flat“.
Seohyun, who was next to the two, bursted into laughter, while Taeyeon seemed surprised at first by Yoona’s sudden diss but started giggling as well. The video showcased the girls’ close friendship, as they could comfortably make jokes about each other.
After viewing the video, fans commented, “Yoona’s ‘sexual’ joke causes Taeyeon to have a mental breakdown!“, “It seems like the two are really close friends!“, “Know thyself“, and ”I don’t think Yoona should be saying that…”.
Girls’ Generation has won the ‘Best Album of the Year‘ category at MTV Video Music Awards Japan for their self-titled debut Japanese album, ‘Girls’ Generation’.
They beat out Lady Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way‘, KARA‘s ‘Super Girl‘, Coldplay‘s ‘Mylo Xyloto‘, andJuju‘s ‘You‘ in this star packed category. This album was recently certified “Million” by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (or ‘RIAJ’), for moving more than one million copies.
Congratulations to Girls’ Generation!
On June 7th, the sounds of Girls’ Generation’s Yuri, Jessica, Sooyoung, and Seohyun’s laughter would not end in Cheongdam-dong. For the photoshoot for the July issue of “@star1″, they arrived an hour early at the hair and beauty shop, Soonsoo. Looking at the girls wearing hair rollers while getting their makeup done and chatting was just “twinkle, twinkle”. After hearing that Girls’ Generation usually likes eating yummy foods while chatting or shopping, I got an idea and decided this photoshoot’s concept would be “Girls’ Generation’s Fun Outing”.
On the day of the shoot, the girls had their own individual schedules, as well as the launching event for their collaborative perfume “GiRL” with 10 Corso Como that evening, so time was not on our side. Also, there was a heat wave in Cheongdam-dong, and fans were everywhere, and we had to change the course of direction and cue sheets constantly throughout the shoot because of the crowding fans. It was an overall difficult situation that was about to make the staff’s mentality collapse. However, unlike the staff, the girls were relaxed, saying, “It’s nice being able to shoot outdoors, getting natural lighting after shooting in studios all the time.”
The first cut was done in a bakery/cafe. As soon as she stepped into the bakery, Seohyun kept saying, “Oh my, it’s really nice,” and, even when nobody told her to, she started choosing pretty desserts and bread. She took a seat with Sooyoung at the Nocheon Cafe and started conversing with her. They acted so natural that you couldn’t tell if it was a photoshoot or their everyday life. Once outside the cafe, we shot photos of Sooyoung taking a walk with the Golden Retriever, “Aki”, and Bichon Frisé, “Bbyong”. “I normally like dogs, and have three dogs at home.” She looked loveable, kicking her feet, not knowing what to do, because she was so happy after seeing the dogs. Going on, we captured Yuri, Jessica, Sooyoung, and Seohyun’s natural appearances shopping while walking to and from 10 Corso Como and Tory Burch. “We couldn’t even think about it now because of our busy schedules, but we enjoy shopping in Cheongdam-dong with our members or friends when we don’t have any schedules.”
Like their words, they picked out pretty clothes for one another and smelled their own “GiRL” perfume scents. They looked like real sisters having fun. In between shoots, Seohyun would be absorbed in picking books from the book corner. Yuri, who said, “I usually like reading and listening to music at cafes,” enjoyed the peaceful sunlight at Noncheon Cafe. Known for her exceptional aesthetic senses, Jessica looked like she realized that time was flying because she was busy viewing drawings in the opera gallery. Despite the photoshoot starting in the morning along with the hot weather, we were able to complete the shoot thanks to the girls not frowning once but acting professional by smiling from start to finish. Girls’ Generation’s Yuri, Jessica, Sooyoung, and Seohyun’s hearts are just as pretty as their loveable faces. I want to take this spot to sincerely thank the girls.
