Taetiseo Talks About The Advtanges Of Promoting As A Subunit

This past week, Girls' Generation's first subunit Taetiseo has been busy promoting their new song "TWINKLE" on various music programs. In between performances, the girls sat down for an interview.

According to the group, there are some advantages to promoting as a group.

"When promoting with all 9 members, each member is assigned to a certain style. Because of this, throughout the promotion, we have to display the same style. However, performing with 3 members, we are able to select from a wider variety. I think we will be able to show more variety of styles than we were able to as Girls' Generation," Tiffany stated.

"As Girls' Generation, the group choreography was the important element, but with 3 members, the stage focuses more on vocals than choreography. I think this is the point that changed the most," Taeyeon added.

Taetiseo also revealed that forming a subunit has actually strength the bonds between the members of Girls' Generation. While its difficult to see each other all the time with their packed individual schedules, the members always keep in touch with their smartphones.

"I'm embarrassed to say this, but these days, us members say that we miss each other a lot. Since middle school-high school, we haven’t taken many pictures together, but now when we meet, we always take pictures together," Taeyeon stated.

"I'm really thankful that the members sincerely cheer us on. I watched the music video with the other members and they enviously wondered if the agency invested more into this video than for Girls’ Generation, causing much laughter. I think we grew fonder with one another," Tiffany said.

    I'm very glad that Girls' Generation is branching out... if nothing else, this just means more songs :D

    I am not really a fan of SNSD but some of their stuff is really good!! I think their subgroup is something different giving others to do other things!

    That's a positive way to see it. :3

    But I wish SMEnt. (other entertainment companies should do so as well) would give proper attention to their other artists too. Most sub-units are made up of the most prominent member of each group.

    i agree to this, they just take out the most popular ones...

    Sure it's easier and has a lot of advantages in 3 than in 9 !

    i hate sub-units, i think it kinda ruins the spirit of a band. but perhaps it's unavoidable

  • Reply by YukiLee VIP  

    I don't think so. I think it's a way of promoting different side of the band. And it wont have any consequences if the main band stays the main focus

    I am already wanting them to just make their SNSD comeback. Taetiseo is good... but.....

    i like the fact that it has brought the members closer together and that it is more individualised, but i am really gonna miss SNSD as a whole

    i never liked the vibe SNSD gave off, and sadly it seems like Taetiseo has that same image. don't get me wrong the song is good though.

    Yah, but AKB has the 60+ people that calls for subunits... heck, almost everything they do is some sort of shuffle or another so a subunit just makes it more official. On a related note, by one definition, pseudo-subgroup DiVA is actually bigger than all of SNSD as it has 10 members (I think only 4 are AKB though).

  • Posted by RedMongoose · 320 Jpops · 65 shares · 4 years ago  

    Of course there are advantages to a subunit... but there are disadvantages too, and I still think SNSD is too small of a group to need a permanent subunit.

  • Reply by sapphiresky  

    i agreed. also the focus would be more on these 3 girls and the others would be overlooked over time..

  • Reply by janellie09  

    actually the other 6 girls are also gonna have sub-units so i think its okay.
