Can you believe it’s been this long already since one of the most iconic K-pop groups officially debuted? Nicknamed as the “Nation’s Girl Group” in South Korea, SNSD or Girls’ Generation rose to fame back in 2009 with their bubblegum pop single, “Gee,” which kickstarted the colourful skinny jeans trend. The K-pop group known for youthful and refreshing appeal went on to produce 10 albums, which included hits like “Genie” and “The Boys” that showed how they evolved and experimented with their personal and musical styles.
Still, it was only inevitable that the ladies would experience a few challenges in their long-standing career. Originally a nine-girl group, Girls’ Generation lost a sister with the departure of Jessica Jung in 2014. And in 2017, three more members decided not to renew their contracts with the group’s label SM Entertainment, prompting the creation of the Oh!GG subunit consisting of the remaining five members. However, their decision to pursue their own paths doesn’t mean the girl gang has totally left each other. Taeyeon, Yoona, Sooyoung, Seohyun, Tiffany, Yuri, Hyoyeon, and Yuri still remain as close as ever. They even reunited just last week for Tiffany’s birthday. As SNSD celebrates their 12th anniversary, let’s all see what the ladies are up to now.
