How to celebrate 10 years: SNSD vows to perform harder.
It has been a decade since Korean girl group SNSD debuted. Over the past 10 years, they garnered huge success as an eight-piece and as individual artists, doing concert tours, endorsements shoots, and even acting in dramas.
To celebrate their milestone, it seems that SNSD is planning a busy year, with group and solo projects, K-Pop Herald reports.
One of the main vocalists of the group, Taeyeon unveiled on Thursday a teaser video of her new track 'I Got Love,' hinting at her new release, four months after she dropped her last single '11:11.' The song will be part of her first full-length album, said her agency S.M. Entertainment.
She has shown her capabilities as a solo singer with her chart-sweeping tracks which include drama soundtracks such as 'If,' 'Can You Hear Me,' 'I' and 'Rain.'
The youngest of the group, Seohyun, also released some solo material with her first album 'Don't Say No' last January. The album showcased Seohyun's versatility as a musician, with her penning six of the seven tracks on the album.
The girls have been active in acting, too. Yoona starred on the recent spy action film 'Confidential Assignment' which attracted over seven million domestic viewers. The next stop in her acting career is MBC's upcoming drama, 'The King Loves', which will also star Im Si-wan and Hong Jong-hyun.
Yuri currently stars on SBS' crime thriller 'Defendant' as public attorney Seo Eun-hye. The drama is leading in viewership ratings for its time slot, tallying 22.2 percent for the most recent episode.
SNSD also hinted at a group release. Though details have not yet been disclosed, the members frequently talk about the group's tenth anniversary on TV shows, indicating that they are working on something.
'I wish we (SNSD) could get the Grand Prize at the end-of-year music awards in commemoration of our [tenth anniversary],' Sooyoung said on JTBC's 'We Will Eat Well'.
