Biography

South Korea (2007 – present)

Girls’ Generation (Korean: 소녀시대; So Nyuh Shi Dae) (Japan: 少女時代; Shojo Jidai) is an eight-member South Korean girl group formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2007. They are also referred to as Soshi (소시) or SNSD by their fans, both abbreviated forms of the group’s Korean name.

They gained attention at the beginning of their career with songs such as “Into the New World”, “Kissing You” and “Baby Baby. ” However, it was not until 2009, they gained immense popularity with their hit single “Gee”, which, until 2012, held the record for being the longest running number one song on KBS Music Bank, having held the number one chart ranking for nine consecutive weeks. “Gee” was named ‘song of the decade’ by the Korean music site, Melon. The group solidified their place in the Korean music industry with their follow-up singles “Tell Me Your Wish (Genie),” “Run Devil Run,” and “Oh!.”

The group began a foray into the Japanese music scene in late 2010 under Nayutawave Records, a label part of Universal Music Group, with the Japanese remakes of their 2009 Korean hits “GENIE” and “Gee.” The group’s debut Japanese album, GIRLS’ GENERATION, released in June of 2011, is currently the highest selling album in Japan by a Korean group in Oricon history. It was certified Million by the RIAJ and made the group the second Korean artist to earn this achievement in Japan since Korean labelmate Boa’s “BEST OF SOUL” in 2005.
