Girls Generation to Release Album in Europe

Girls Generation will release an official album in France on February 13. Their agency SM delivered the news on February 7 that Girls Generation will release their album "The Boys" through Polydor, the French branch of Universal music. The album will be a special album of their album "The Boys" that was released in the USA last month.

Girls Generation's album release in Europe is an outstanding achievement in the Korean music business. The group Coreana held activities with the group name "Arirang Singers" in France in the 1970s, and they released a single album through Polydor, but Girls Generation will be marked as the first group that a Korean company organized and released an official album for in such a large volume. SM said, "Girls Generation had already proved the possibility of success in Europe when they appeared on 'SM Town Live' which was a joint concert of singing groups belonging to SM last year. Girls Generation has finally begun holding world-wide activities by releasing their album in France."

Girls Generation released "The Boys" last month in the USA and successfully finished their album promotion in the American market with their appearance on the popular talk show on CBS, "David Letterman Show," and another popular talk show on ABC, "Live with Kelly," one after another. The columnist Jeff Yang of America's Wall Street Journal (WSJ) wrote a column entitled "Can Girls' Generation Break through in America?" and the writer predicted Girls Generation’s success while praising their fluent English.
