SNSDÂ sat down with reporters in their waiting room to express their gratitude for their music chart â€˜all-killâ€™ with â€œThe Boysâ€œ.
The girls began, â€œWeâ€™re both excited and nervous every time we release a new album. There was some anticipation because it was our first Korean comeback in a while. Since â€˜The Boysâ€™ is different in style to the music SNSD previously presented, we were kind of worried as to how people would react. Still, our hearts were beating, and we were all more excited than ever.â€
They continued,Â â€œWe recorded our comeback in front of our fans today. Although it was our first stage, they all perfected their fan-chants, which weâ€™re both glad and grateful for.â€
With regards to their â€˜all-killâ€™ on the charts, SNSD remarked,Â â€œBecause we were all so preoccupied with our comeback preparations, we had no time to go on the internet. It wasnâ€™t until today that we found out about our ranking on the charts. Itâ€™s something we didnâ€™t expect, so weâ€™re really thankful for that. There were a lot of songs that we had specially prepared for our album. We wanted to show them off to our fans so weâ€™re glad that they even listened to our album. We have yet to begin our official promotional activities and are already receiving such love, so it makes us feel a bit more responsible to live up to everyoneâ€™s expectations.â€
When asked whether theyâ€™re anticipating a music program win, they responded,Â â€œWe havenâ€™t thought of it. The members havenâ€™t talked about winning yet. Instead of working with the thought of â€˜placing firstâ€™, we want to prioritize showing what we couldnâ€™t before. We trust that we will be met with positive results if we continue to work hard.â€
