Girls' Generation on Letterman and Kelly



Nine-member K-pop group, Girls’ Generation, also known as SNSD, made their U.S network TV debut by performing their hot single, “The Boys,” on The Late Show with David Letterman last night (Jan. 31).

One of the most watched late night shows, The Late Show is famous for its celebrity guests, from politicians to Hollywood actors and actresses. This is a breakthrough for K-pop because this is the first time Korean singers have been invited as the musical act.

After their stellar debut last night, Girls’ Generation performed “The Boys” again on Live! With Kellytoday to a cheering crowd and taught some of their dance moves to host Kelly Ripa and guest co-host Howie Mandel.

While Girls’ Generation has started to accumulate a worldwide audience, K-pop is also rising in popularity with other leading K-pop groups such as the Wonder Girls, who made their U.S. TV debuton The Wendy Williams Show in 2009 and is considered GG’s biggest rivals. The Wonder Girls are set to screen their TV movie, a cross between FameStep Up, and Bring It On, on TeenNick tomorrow, February 2 at 5PM pst/ 8PM est. To watch the movie trailer, click here.

Due to Hurricane Irene affecting Puerto Rico, Turks & Caicos, The Bahamas and later the Northeastern United States, this episode was delayed considerably.  Yes, I don’t live in all of those places, but my Internet was down for 3 days after power returned to my neighborhood.  My family and I are fine, but there are a lot that are suffering in the wake of the first Hurricane this season.
