Girls’ Generation (SNSD) is one of the most popular girl groups in Korea and has an extremely large fan base both domestically and internationally. They have fans from all age groups – teens all the way to uncle fans. Uncle fan is a colloquial term to describe a fan that is over thirty years old. Since the beginning of K-pop, dedicated fans showered their favorite celebrities with various fan letters and gifts to show their appreciation for all the celebs’ hard works. It’s no secret that as one of Korea’s most loved celebrities, the girls of Girls’ Generation receive bucket loads of fan gifts. It’s been roughly two months since SNSD’s Jessica’s 22nd birthday, and photos of birthday gifts from her fans of all age groups have surfaced on a SNSD fan site, and she’s received some amazing, albeit extravagant, gifts since her debut.
Below are just some of her birthday gifts!
A MIDI master keyboard + various accessories
ULTRASONE Natural Surround Sound Headphones
Designer flat shoes
Photobook titled “Special day for JESSICA~” with various writings from fans
Olympus camera with a 17mm viewfinder as well two lenses: 17mm lens & 14-42mm lens
Chanel and other luxury cosmetic products
(Editor’s Note: Sorry for the confusion. It’s come to our attention that only some, not all gifts came from uncle fans. Also, the following two gifts were given to Yuri, not Jessica. Thanks for the heads up Soompiers!)
