The South Korean girl group, Shoujo Jidai (SNSD), continue to produce quality and catchy dance tunes which are a big hit in Japan. All members have style, movement, beauty, and of course, voices to match all their other attributes.
Shoujo Jidai consist of nine members and Taeyeon, Tiffany, Yuri, Jessica, Hyoyeon, Sunny, Sooyoung, Seohyun and Yoona all appear to be not only in love with their trade but more important, it appears that they are genuinely close and this adds to the energy of their performances and videos.
It is great to see South Korean culture and influence growing in Japan and the same applies to the growing influence of Japanese culture in South Korea.
The younger generation and modern technology is breaking down old barriers which have hindered the region for too long. Therefore, groups like Shoujo Jidai are achieving what politicians failed to do.
Turning back to their music style then clearly they have “a buzz” and “natural energy” and if you listen to “Mr. Taxi” and are lucky enough to see the video; then it is abundantly clear to why they are so popular in Japan.
Shoujo Jidai have an energy which is rare in such large groups but they can pull it off because of stylish movements, nice vocals which relate to the lyrics, get up and go energy and all pocketed into ladies with energy and features that would melt the hearts of many.
Mr. Taxi, Genie and Run Devil Run are three tunes which appeal to the ear quickly and with the high octane nature of life in mega cities like Busan, Osaka, Tokyo, and Seoul, respectively; then this group can relate to their captive market and throughout South Korea and Japan they are very popular.
Shoujo Jidai will start The 1st Japan Arena Tour on May 31 and it will end on July 17 this year. They will perform ten times and visit Osaka, Saitama, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagoya and Fukuoka.
Their fans clearly can’t wait and this tour will add to their growing popularity in Japan and long may it continue.
