Interview with …. Arab Sones

Girls’ Generation, aka SNSD, is undeniably one of the highly recognized and best-selling K-Pop girl groups in South Korea. Their 2009 hit bubblegum song Gee, gained them attraction in their homeland and beyond. They continued to sweep up the charts, win awards and release hit songs like Genie, Mr.Mr., Hoot, The Boys, Run Devil Run, and many more, with the help of their loyal fans, who go by Sones.

@Arabsone9 was created in July 8th 2014.

The reason why we created this account is that we wanted to communicate with all of Arab sones easily and translate SNSD’s news for them.

Since there’s a lot of Arab sones and a lot of people who love Girls’ Generation, we decided to create this account to let many people know more about them, to post every single new & update about the members and to support them of course!

@Arabsone9 is not just an account for us , can we say it’s our daily routine? we spend all the day long in the account. Even from this account the admins became so close to each other.

We even communicate with each other daily ! Like calling and chatting. Last but not least we hope to keep running this account for along time.

We want to make many people know this great girl group which is Girls’ Generation and enjoy their music just like we do!

http://melroth.com/?komp=tecnica-opzioni-binarie-30-minuti&d43=b2 Admin Fajer: There are many followers from so many different countries

But the most are from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and about the gender mostly are females without a specific ages because they are divided from teenagers to adults

here What made you become interested in Girls’ Generation and when would you say you first became a Sone?

click Admin Nourah: I saw SNSD for the first time in 2008 on korea tv channel , the channel was airing their songs so I liked them a lot and their singing abilities amazed me , so I started searching about them on YouTube I watched their first reality show called ( girls go to school ) and because of it I liked their personalities then officially I became a sone , SNSD is the first kpop group that I liked until now.

http://aronsonfence.com/?viosele=rencontres-yverdon-les-bains&686=05 Admin Rahaf Alj: I knew SNSD in 2009, but I wasn’t interested in Korean pop. After three years my friend told me about the korean pop and she showed me a video of korean band. Then I searched about korean pop in general. Then SNSD attracted me , so that’s how I became a Sone, and I really can’t wait to see them.

aplicaciones de android para conocer gente Admin Fajer: I’m a sone since 2011 , I was enjoying my time on YouTube watching random videos then suddenly I noticed their song gee I was curious about it but after I watched the music video I found myself searching more and more about them until I decided officially to become a sone !

Admin Rahaf Als: I became a sone after listening and watching to their song gee. When I watched it for the first time my love for them growing a lot since that moment and I’ll be a sone forever.

Although some members have left SM Entertainment to pursue other activities, you still share all the members’ news and updates with your followers. Why is that?

Admin Nourah: We became sone when SNSD used to have 9 members, we stayed with them days and years! We loved each member in special way.

We can’t hate any member for any reason!

Wether if one of them left the group to focus in her own life or to make her own solo we will still support her and we will update the all members news

And about the members who left SM recently they’re still in Girls’ Generation

What do you like most about Girls’ Generation?

We like everything about them , their performances , songs , fashions and personalities.

As a group they are perfect in many ways like their voices , their perfect vocals and the things that makes SNSD always special is their different concepts and their unique songs!

What we like the most is their strong relationship between them, especially when they gathered together to celebrate Sooyoung’s birthday together at Tiffany’s apartment even though the three members left the company.

What songs would you recommend for those who are new to the K-pop girl group?

Admin Nourah: Into the new world and All night

Admin Fajer: Lion Heart and Genie

Admin Rahaf Alj: Love is bitter and The boys

 

Any projects (posters, fan chants etc…) you worked on for the SM Town concert in Dubai that you can share with us?

Admin Nourah: Yes of course! We worked on a lot of projects for the SMTown concert in Dubai. Here are the projects that we prepared:
We gave 1 thousand small banners for the Sones, and of course we gave it to the other fans!
And we already gave 3 banners to Hyoyeon,Yoona and Taeyeon.
What was written on the small banners is
“Thank you for coming and making our dream come true“
We also made one huge banner , we wrote on it
“Stay together sailing into the new world, with you who made our life complete“.
The second project is the gifts for all the 8 members, we’ve already bought the gifts for each member from swarovski and the gifts contain Sone’s letters, and we are so happy that we gave them our gifts??.

What did you think of the SMTown concert and seeing the members live? How were you all feeling at the moment? 

Admin Nourah: The concert was really great and even SM Artists were so great on the stage, but we hoped for a group stage for SNSD. However, their solo stages were great too !
Their voices can’t be described so amazing and they’re so beautiful !
Before the concert day I met hyoyeon accidentally and I was able to give her our gifts and she smiled at me a lot, I really wanted to speak with her more but I was so nervous and shocked but just seeing her made me so happy , honestly I feel like its a dream I can’t believe that I was able to see and meet our girls , and its my second time seeing taeyeon but this time she was so close !??
Our girls are really pretty and it can’t be described in words

Have you worked on any other projects for Girls’ Generation? Do you collaborate with other Girl’s Generation accounts around the world and send gifts, display posters etc…?

Yes! Back on time when Taeyeon came to the UAE, we gave her a necklace made out of gold, but we couldn’t give her while she was in UAE, so we sent it to Korea, so we are not sure if she received it or not!

The second gift was for Taeyeon too. We made a food support for her comeback “Why” for her and her team.

We actually planned for a lot of projects for the whole members and the soloist members but we couldn’t do them for some reasons. Wait for us in future for a lot and bigger projects.

Is there anything that you’d like to add or share with readers?

Admin Rahaf Alj: First of all thank you for giving us the chance for being a part of this interview! Secondly, we would like to share our experience with you guys, seeing our favorite idols in real life was like a dream! We still can’t believe that we saw Girls Generation members in real life we were so happy to had that amazing experience!
Finally, we hope to see our favorite idols again in different Arab countries in future.
At the end we hope you enjoyed reading our interview and thank you so much for reading it!

Top things you need to know about BTS now

Bangtan Boys’ latest album, Love Yourself: Her, debuted at No. 7 on Billboard 200 album chart

Find out how this ARTIST is dominating international charts (and fans’ hearts)


At a glance, South Korean boy band Bangtan Boys (BTS) are the complete K-Pop package – they are multi-talented young men with good looks. The seven-member group has recently been conquering music charts, not only in Korea but also in the U.S. Their newly released album, Love Yourself: Her, debuted at No. 7 on Billboard 200 album chart, making it the highest-ranked album by a Korean artist. They also became the highest-charting K-Pop group to land on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart with their title track, DNA.

But, why are they so popular? Well, here’s what makes them stand out from others in the K-Pop industry:

  • They compose and produce socially-conscious music

BTS, who debuted under agency Big Hit Entertainment in 2013, decided to take on a non-traditional path in music.

“BTS ultimately stands out in K-Pop for their emphasis on singing about relatable and realistic topics,” says Jeff Benjamin, Billboard.com’s K-pop columnist.

The Korean artist tackles personal and controversial subjects – politics, loneliness, mental health, adolescence, even women’s empowerment – that resonated with fans all over the world.

“Listeners are not only finding a group that is entertaining and skilled, but someone who represents their voices in topics they aren’t seeing discussed in the media,” he adds.

Writer Taylor Glasby, a freelance K-Pop writer based in the U.K. who has tracked closely the group’s releases, says: “They’ve become excitingly diverse with their sound, bringing in everything from trap to rock to EDM, and as idols who help write and produce their own work, they know best how to use their talents for each track.”

  • They are K-Pop’s social media kings

BTS has a huge fan following and lively presence on social media, which made them the most retweeted artist last year. They were also named one of The 25 Most Influential People on the Internet in 2017 by TIME magazine. After their win at the Billboard Music Awards for Top Social Artist, previously won by pop sensation Justin Bieber six years in a row, BTS proved themselves as this year’s kings of social media in the fan-voted category.

The K-pop group regularly connect with fans through live broadcasts and web videos that feature behind-the-scenes clips of the group while travelling, rehearsing, performing and more.

“I like the way they’re always giving back to the fans and constantly interact with them in more ways than an ordinary artist-fan relationship,” says Admin Ren from BTS UAE, one of the biggest BTS fan Twitter accounts in the country.

  • They’ve got an ARMY of fans

BTS has legion of fans, known as A.R.M.Y. – Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth, and their Billboard win was due to devoted fans, who tweeted #BTSBBMAS more than 300 million times.

BTS UAE on Twitter created a mass request project with the help of A.R.M.Y.s in the UAE and others around the world by tweeting and requesting various UAE radio stations to play BTS’ title track, DNA. The song successfully aired on Virgin Radio Dubai and Radio 1 UAE, while Tag 91.1 played it as part of their reaction segment.

BTS’ new album was soon spotted on the UAE iTunes store after fans conducted a joint project with other international fanbases to make it available to listeners in the Middle East.

“After the news spread, DNA became the #1 track and their new album Love Yourself: Her topped the UAE iTunes charts,” says Admin Kim, the head admin of BTS UAE.
