On July 22nd, Hyoyeon and her partner Kim Hyungsuk won first place on “Dancing with the Stars II”, on an episode which showed six teams performing live for the seventh time. The mission for the day was “My Story”, in which the contestants expressed their life stories in dancing.
On that day, Hyoyeon visited the SM Entertainment practice room thinking about her seven years as a trainee and expressed gratitude towards her parents for looking out for her. She thanked them by saying, “I wasn’t sure if I was a good dancer, but my father discovered my talent and suggested I become a singer.”
Furthermore, when she was asked what Girls’ Generation means to her, she replied with a big smile, “Girls’ Generation isn’t like a treasure to me, but a ‘miracle’. I’m still amazed that I’m part of Girls’ Generation.”
However, Hyoyeon also has a lot of worries because there are nine members. When she was asked what are some things that burden her by being part of Girls’ Generation, she replied, “How I can be recognized. It’s hard to have the name ‘Hyoyeon’ publicized in Girls’ Generation.”
She showed more willpower by saying, “I’m glad I can get recognized through ‘Dancing with the Stars II’. I’ll work harder.”
This episode also featured Hyoyeon’s audition clip, in which she showed powerful locking dance moves in her childhood, along with clips of senior artists talking about “Dancing Queen Hyoyeon”.
When Shinhwa’s Lee Minwoo was asked in an interview which girl group he looked upon the most, he replied, “I’m a Girls’ Generation fan, and I always had an interest in Hyoyeon because she danced so well, thinking she could be the next BoA. I’m glad she accomplished her dream.”
Super Junior’s Eunhyuk, who Hyoyeon shared her trainee days with, said, “Hyoyeon danced so well among 100 trainees and stood out the most. I also went to Hyoyeon to learn to dance.”
Unfortunately, Hyoyeon was unable to perform live on “Dancing with the Stars II” due to promotions for “PAPARAZZI” in Japan, but won first place with a pre-recorded segment which showed a combination of her powerful locking and the cha-cha-cha. The Kim Kayoung and Kim Kangsan team sadly was eliminated.
In the recently unveiled list of winners for the MTV Video Music Awards Japan 2012 (MTV VMAJ 2012), Girls’ Generation, also known as Shoujo Jidai in Japan, won the ‘Best Album of the Year’ award for their first Japanese album ‘Girls’ Generation’ among big name nominees Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Juju and fellow K-pop girl group KARA.
In addition to this award, Girls’ Generation were also nominated for the ‘Best Video of the Year’ award, which eventually went to EXILE for their song ‘Rising Sun’.
The group’s first full-length Japanese album ‘Girls’ Generation’ was released in June last year and is still recording high sales with the album certified ‘Million’ by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) earlier this month, which makes them the second Korean artist to have achieved the ‘Million’ certification after their senior BoA’s ‘Best of Soul’ compilation album more than seven years ago.
Girls’ Generation were no strangers to the MTV VMAJ awards as they won two out of three nominations last year, namely the ‘Best Group Video’ and ‘Best Karaokee! Song’ awards for the Japanese remake of their hit single ‘Genie’, where they beat Black Eyed Peas, Linkin Park, Avril Lavigne, Justin Bieber, Ikimono-gakari and w-inds for the awards.
The awards represent the success of the group in Japan, who had made their debut in the country only less than two years ago in August 2010, and their upcoming release ‘Paparazzi’ has already gotten huge support and response from Japanese and international fans alike. The group has also kicked off their promotional activities for ‘Paparazzi’ on TV Asahi’s ‘Music Station’ on Friday.
