The fan meeting, which was held at Best Buy in NYC’s Union Square on February 2nd, drew around 1,300 fans, causing the surrounding area to fall into confusion. The crowd was so huge that the NYPD were called in and concerns for safety resulted in the store getting shut down.
According to the group’s agency, SM Entertainment, a Best Buy official was quoted as saying, “This is the first time we had to shut down the store for safety reasons since Lady Gaga“.
In related news, Girls’ Generation made their U.S. network TV debut through performances on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman‘ and ‘Live! With Kelly‘. The girl group will continue their American promotional blitz with a ‘meet and greet’ event, held with promoters, broadcasters, and famous DJs.
During a recent recording for jTBC’s “Girls’ Generation and Dangerous Boys”, roughhousing between Kim Hwehoon and Park Kyunggyu eventually became a quarrel, leading to a court trial to solve the dispute. On that day, Yoona served as a witness and stated, “I’m usually really playful, but because of this, I get into trouble with my members.” She then revealed an incident in a waiting room at a music program.
Yoona explained, “All of the members were tired and sleeping in the waiting room when I started talking to them with a voice full of aegyo(cuteness). At that moment, Sunny unnie threatened, ‘I’m going to push you down from the stairs.’” Sunny was taken aback by Yoona’s statement and said that Yuri also got mad. However, it was said that Yuri denied this by saying, “I don’t remember,” making Sunny feel even more awkward.
This episode of “Girls’ Generation and Dangerous Boys” is scheduled to air on February 5th at 7:30PM KST.

During the recent recording of JTBC’s ‘SNSD and the Dangerous Boys’, the Girls’ Generation members and the boys took to court the incident where an argument broke out in the boys’ dorm involving Kim Hwehoon and Park Kyungkyu. Yoona, who was also present at this hearing, unexpectedly revealed incidents that had happened within their group in order to support the boys’ case.
Yoona confessed to have gotten into trouble with some of her group members due to her playfulness and pranks going overboard by adding, “I have also been punished due to my prank on the members.”.
She spoke out about this one incident where they were all in the waiting room at a music program and because they were all tired most of the members had fallen asleep. But Yoona, being the playful type that she is, picked the wrong time to start throwing her aegyo to her unnies, and after a while when she didn’t stop, Yoona finally hit Sunny’s last nerve. Sunny had then exploded at Yoona threatening her that she will ‘seriously push her down the stairs’.
Surprised at Yoona’s sudden confession, Sunny rebutted that she wasn’t the only one, and spoke out that Yuri had also gotten angry at Yoona and was saying bad things that time as well. Hearing this, Yuri pretended she didn’t know anything which made Sunny lost for words in a difficult position.
Yoona also revealed that, although Seohyun doesn’t play any pranks on the other members, she does tend to say things straight to your face. For example, when the members go eat fast food, Seohyun would tell them, “If you eat a lot of fast food, you’re going to die”.
The court trial about the playful argument between Kim Hwehoon and Park Kyungkyu, and Yoona’s confession about Girls’ Generation members will all be revealed on February 5th at 7.30pm on JTBC’s ‘SNSD and the Dangerous Boys’.
