Trivia: Girls' Generation

  • The Danza
    • Sooyoung and Yuri starred in the TV show Unstoppable Marriage as two boy-crazy high school girls named... Sooyoung and Yuri.
    • The other members later made a cameo as "Bul Gwang Dong’s 7 Princesses".
  • Development Hell - The full music video for Beep Beep was supposedly going to be released in late May 2013. They released it in early December 2013 instead.
  • Easter Egg - In "I Got A Boy" when Jessica says "Don't stop, let's bring it back to 140", she means it. The song does go back to 140, not only in bpmnote , but it also goes back to the 1:40 segment in the mp3 file (only in the song itself, not in your music player).

  • One of Us
    • It was revealed that Seohyun has a stash of manga in their vehicle's trunk. She once tried to hide it from an interviewer.
    • Additionally, it appears that Sunny and Taeyeon watch Attack on Titan.
  • The Pete Best - Twelve different SM trainees were part of the various project groups leading up to the 9 member group. Most notable are Soyeon from T-ara and Chanmi from Coed School/5dolls.
  • Promoted Fanboy - Gender-inverted
    • Tiffany. She was a big fan of Kim Hyun Joong (the leader) of SS501 back when she was still a trainee (check out her pre-debut Q&A here). On an episode of the now-defuct Korean TV show Star Golden Bell, SNSD got to guest-star with the members of SS 501 themselves. And when the host conducted a survey in which the members of SS 501 picked the most popular / their favorite SNSD member, they picked Tiffany. (That includes Mr. Kim Hyun Joong). After that, Kim Hyun Joong stated that he looks up Tiffany on the internet. Fangirling from her side most likely ensued.
    • Sunny also had a fangirl moment when her idol Lee Bumsoo (a famous Korean actor) became SNSD's acting teacher on Horror Movie Factory.
    • In MTV Lifestyle, we have Seohyun's own fangirl moment when she visited the Keroro dubbing studio. She even got to dub Keroro's voice!
  • Scully Box - The girls range in height from 155 cm (Sunny) to 170 cm (Sooyoung). While there's not much they can do about the massive differences whilst performing, photoshoots are another matter, and often result in the employment of these. See here and here.
  • What Could Have Been
    • Prior to their debut, SNSD went through several line-up changes. SM planned to have 11 girls in the group, one of which was Soyeon of T-ara. The group would be A LOT different today had they gone through with this. Read more on the roster history here
    • During their time as trainees in SM, their group's name was "YeoDan Team".note  The name "Super Girls" was preferred by the press and the netizens.
