    When Girls' Generation was in Jeju Island for the SBS Super Concert Wonderful Jeju, an e-mail interview was conducted with the girls by Malaysia's "The Star" newspaper. Along with the scan of the newspaper article, the interview has been attached.

    The Star: 2010 was a very good year for Girls' Generation. How are you going to top that?

    Taeyeon: I'm not sure how we will prepare our concept for our performance, but we will never disappoint our fans.
    Yuri: Many fans like our style. We will come back with a perfect stage which is full of SNSD magnetism.
    Sooyoung: We always try to show fans a mature and varied performance. We hope they will love our new album, Mr Taxi (released in Japan last month).

    The Star: People always accuse Asians of copy­ing the West in music but when Lady Gaga released her single, Born This Way, recent­ly, she was accused of plagiarising your Be Happy by your international fans. What does this say about the growth of K-pop?

    Taeyeon: Yes, many people throughout the world are interested in Korean pop music. But it is more important how K-pop applies to various styles rather than just being copied in other countries.
    Yuri: There’s a craze for popular Korean cultures in many Asian countries because Korean pop music is a successful com­bination of the old and new.
    Sooyoung: It is inevitable to refer to western music because it was developed earlier than Korean music. However, K-pop also reinterprets its style well.
    Seohyun: Recently, Korean pop music has become successful in the western market. I think it is because there are so many singers who work hard at it. That’s why it’s getting popular with foreigner audiences.
    Sunny: Because of the growth of Korean pop music, many fans can easily get the experience. So we will try to put up better performances for our fans.
    Yoona: I would like to show our music to fans from other countries. We are supposed to go to Japan next.

    The Star: Fans love your style. Can you recom­mend any Korean fashion lines or shops for Malaysian fans who want follow your style?

    Taeyeon: I would like to introduce Myung Dong as a great place for youngsters’ culture.
    Yuri: There are many famous places, but I would like to suggest Rodeo Street, Sinsadong garosugil.
    Sooyoung: We also read many fashion magazines to find the best fashion.
