Girls’ Generation once again proved what they are capable of.
The team’s first subgroup ‘TaeTiSeo‘ seized several #1 trophies on a number of different music programs, and will be wrapping up promotions with a final performance on the June 3rd broadcast ofSBS ‘Inkigayo‘.
With their hit song “Twinkle“, the girls secured #1 K-Chart wins for three consecutive weeks on SBS ‘Inkigayo’, KBS ‘Music Bank‘, Mnet ‘M! Countdown‘, and MBC Music‘s ‘Show! Champion‘. Though there have been many unit groups to grace the K-Pop scene, this is the first time a unit group has earned a triple-crown and secured a #1 win on each previously mentioned music program.
“Twinkle” which was released back April 30th proved that it had staying power, as it remained at the #3 spot on major Korean music site Melon as of May 31st KST.
After debuting as a unit group, the girls were acknowledged for their explosive vocal talent that they couldn’t properly display before with 9-member group Girls’ Generation. An insider from their agency SM Entertainment remarked, “I think TaeTiSeo was able to last a long while because with their subgroup promotions, the girls have been acknowledged for their music, their choreography, and their visuals.”
TaeTiSeo who admitted that they shook with nervous jitters for their first unit group performance remarked, “With Girls’ Generation, the charismatic choreography was extremely important, but I think with [unit] promotions, we were able to focus mainly on our vocals. Our company has been extremely supportive, and the other members joked that they were jealous.”
