Girls’ Generation-TTS Singer Seohyun Is ‘So Proud’ Of Girl Groups In K-Pop

The popularity of K-pop group Girls' Generation-TTS' new album "Holler" has continues to swell since the album's release in mid-September. 

Nearly two years have passed since their debut as a subunit of the nine-member girl group Girls' Generation, the trio continues to represent women in K-pop as they top music charts across Asia with their recently released EP. 

"When we first debuted, there were a lot of all-boy groups so even our name 'Girls' Generation' represented girl power and our desire to create a generation of girls. Now there are so many girl groups so we're very proud and think it's a great thing," explained Girls' Generation-TTS member Seohyun during an appearance on the Korean music program "Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook."

The trio's album ranked No. 1 on Korea's Hunter Sales Chart for two consecutive weeks. The idol group also topped Taiwan's sales chart FIVE MUSIC for two weeks straight, according to the Korean publication Osen Entertainment. 

Aside from music charts, Girls' Generation-TTS came in at No. 1 with their performance of "Holler" on Korean music programs, including Mnet's "M! Countdown" and "Music Bank."

The three members of Girls' Generation will be performing on "M! Countdown" and "Music Bank" this week once again. They will also be performing their single on the MBC music program "Show! Music Core" on October 11 and the SBS program "Inkigayo" a day later. 

Girls' Generation-TTS has gained popularity outside of Asia as well, ranking No. 1 on the World Albums chart, following the success of their debut album "Twinkle" back in 2012, according to Billboard. "Holler" also debuted at No. 11 on the Heatseekers Albums Chart while their single under the same name came in at No. 6 on World Digital Songs chart. 

The girl group reportedly became the third K-pop group to rank No. 1 on the World Albums chart while they set the record as the only female group to top the chart more than once. 

The success of "Holler" can be credited to each member's contribution to making the album.

"This album was really fun to put together because the songs were handpicked by all the members," explained LA native Tiffany

"So, we have the A&R rep sit down, give us a bunch songs and we go, 'no, no, we want this one! We want this!' From the video to the styling to the tracks, this album was really personal for us and it was fun for us to put out a much more raw side of our music. Rather than saying something, everything sounds cooler in a song, so it's finally time to say, 'hey, we've done that. We've been there.' We hope that we can kind of express that.," 

"All the other Girls' Generation songs were more, I think, cutesy and more energetic," she said. "The music we put together has so many more layers, so much more depth to it in terms of sound, choruses or harmonizing together."
