They are often referred to as SoShi (소시), or SNSD (mainly outside Korea), the first of which is an abbreviation and the second an acronym of the group's Korean name So Nyeo Shi Dae (or So Nyuh Shi Dae). In China, they are known as 少女時代 (Shàonǚ Shídài; or Siu Nui Si Doi in Hong Kong) and in Japan as 少女時代 (Shōjo Jidai).
The group has released two full albums, two mini-albums, and various singles. Their 2009 hit single "Gee" holds the record for being the longest running #1 song on KBS's Music Bank, having held the #1 chart ranking for 9 consecutive weeks. That year also saw the group winning various awards, including consecutive Artist of the Year (Daesang) awards at the Seoul Music Awards, Golden Disk Awards, Melon Music Awards, and the Korean Cultural Entertainment Awards.
The group began a foray into the Japanese music scene in late 2010, with the Japanese remakes of their 2009 Korean hits "Gee" and "Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)". In Japan they are under the label Nayutawave Records, a part of Universal Music. Late 2010, So Nyeo Shi Dae released the mini-album Hoot, which won various awards. In 2011, Girls' Generation entered the Japan's market with the double a-side single Mr.Taxi/Run Devil Run. Later, the group released a brand new japanese album, which contains twelve songs including hits like Bad Girl and The Great Escape.
The members were professionally trained primarily in singing, dancing and languages while a select few were also underwent further training in acting and modeling. Many of the members had already made appearances in magazine ads, television commercials, and small television appearances. For nearly two years, Korean websites speculated about which female SM Entertainment trainees would be placed into the group.

“At last, my soshi unnie. Nine of us are just like fate right? When I am sad, 8 unnies accompany me to cry and comfort me = sad ÷ 8. When I am happy, 8 unnies who will happy and cheer for me just like it’s their own business = happy x 8. When I am sick, 8 unnies who give me their vitamins and take care of me = illness - 8. When I am happy, angry, want to cry and anytimes…I feel happier because my members always support me by my side, comfort me when I am sad, 8 unnies who understand me because we are together = happy + 8. We complete our dream with unremitting efforts and enthusiasm. We can make music and performance because there is 9 of us.
I love you all. We must always start from this moment! Now is Girls’ Generation!”

*Clearing my throat* AHHEM ! This is my very 1st time, to post my birthday message towards my dear friend's wife ~
Honestly, you didn't really attract me at the 1st time I knew SNSD.
As I start to discover more about SNSD, especially facts and personalities . . . .
The 1st thing that come out from my mind is dancing, when I watch SNSD previous dance covers or performances !
Next one, you're witty, when it comes to variety shows ! Sometimes, you're making me bursting in a great laughter, my mum also can hear my laughter at living room, even though I'd closed my room's door !
You must knew this screenshot, yes, it's from Let's Go Dream Team Season 2 You're good in sports and stamina !
Usually, whenever SNSD comeback, I usually "spazzing" over my wife and bias . . . .
But . . . . . . . . .
The Boys comeback, you're really giving me a STRIKE !!!!!!
You're really stunning ! The rap and dance ! ROCK !!!
*Smiling* I really like your style in this picture. Simple yet stylish !
When you're smiling, you're pretty ! *Happy*
Happy Birthday, Hyoyeon ! *Clapping*
Wish you always living happily with your dearest family and 8 sisters
Remember, always be confident ! SONEs will always supporting and loving you
Now, I admire you, as SNSD members and sisters !

Happy birthday, Hyo!
Kim Hyoyeon, words cannot explain how much you mean to me. I have nothing, but the greatest respect for you and everything you do.
This year, you made me cry like a baby! I have never wanted anyone to win anything as badly as I wanted you to win Dancing with the Stars II. When the winner was announced I broke down completely. If anyone has ever deserved to win something it was you. But what did you do? You did what Kim Hyoyeon does the best. You putted a smile on your face and moved on as a true winner!!
Even after all the criticizing words you’ve encountered throughout your career you just smile and ignore it all. You never give up and that’s why you’re more than just my ultimate bias.You give me strength and courage.You are my inspiration, my hero.
You give me so much happiness. I love everything about you: your amazing dancing skills, your dorkiness, your husky voice, your smile, your shy and awkward self, your ability to make people laugh
And last but not least your beauty! Kim HyoYeon, you are beautiful in every way possible!
I wish that you have an incredible day with your eight sisters and with those who are close to you.I love you, Hyoyeon. Happy Birthday!
