Girls’ Generation has been around for ten years. That’s a lot of videos to track down, and I’m not even sure some of them are available or good quality! Since these profiles are geared towards newer fans, I’ve decided to just include their appearances since 2015. They did a lot of variety shows while promoting “Party” and “Lion Heart,” and I think it’s a good place to start getting to know the group. Many members have also been regular cast members of variety shows, and those are listed under their individual profiles.
None of these videos are mine; they belong to their respective networks or channels. The subs are also not mine. They are either done by the network itself or a fan.
REALITY SHOWS – If you’re interested on searching for any of SNSD’s old reality shows, you can try to look up the following:
*Girls’ Generation Goes to School (MNET, 2007) – I think this is a pre-debut series.
*MTV Girls’ Generation (SBS MTV, 2007) – Each episode focuses on a different member.
*Factory Girl (MNET, 2008) – Inspired by The Devil Wears Prada, this show features the members interning at Elle Girl Korea.
