Girls’ Generation Ends 2013 with a Bang at SMTown Week Concert
Girls’ Generation recently celebrated the approach of Christmas and the end of another year with fans at their “Märchen Fantasy” as part of the SMTown Week Concert series on December 22.
The girls performed a variety of their hits, some of which topped Oricon charts such as “The Boys”, “Hoot”, “Express 999”, “Galaxy Supernova”, “Love&Girls”, “Gee”, “I Got A Boy”, “Honey”, “Romantic St.” and “Snowy Wish.”
In keeping with the holiday and Christmas spirit, they also performed “Love Melody”, “Diamond”, “Santa Baby” and “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” In addition, they rearranged certain tracks just for the holidays like “Kissing You”, “Over The Rainbow”, “When You Wish Upon A Star”, “Magic Castle” and “Märchen Fantasy.”
The girls also prepared special performances to show fans something new and different. For example, Tiffany sang a duet with SHINee’s Onew for the Disney classic, “A Whole New World.” Taeyeon stunned concertgoers in a mesmerizing red dress while singing “My Grown Up Christmas List.” Seohyun played and sang the acoustic version of “Kiss Me.” Other members took on popular K-Pop hits as a special treat for fans. Tiffany and Yuri covered SISTAR19’s “Ma Boy”, Sunny took on Ga In’s “Bloom”, Sooyoung performed Sunmi’s “24 Hours” and Jessica covered Lee Hyori’s “Miss Korea.”
The girls wrapped it up by saying a few words to thank the fans who had attended the event. “Today was such a gift to us all. While performing these songs for you all, it’s been a source of strength for us. We feel like it’s been such a heartwarming way to end the year. We’re so grateful,” they said.
“Here is our real gift to everyone who came here today” they announced as they revealed a special teaser for their 2014 comeback, causing fans to go wild with anticipation and excitement. The fans also prepared a meaningful gift in return by wearing pink santa hats while the girls were all performing “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and raised up banners that read “Thank you, We Love You”, “We’ll Only Give You Happiness” during the girls’ “Snowy Wish” performance.
