I just came back from the chocolate recording. Not many of you (sones) know about this I decided to write some highlights of the recording.

The first stage was a dance stage. They danced to a pop genre music. I couldnt remember what song was that but that melody often being used in most of the CFs. emm... 
Fany wore hot pants and fishnet stockings...she took a chair...and started to dance. My eyes were like camera, I kept focusing on her. My heart cant take it anymore...
In the middle part of the song, fany was standing in the middle and her choreography was kinda different from the others. She looked like an foreign actor...her pose especially...Please enjoy the broadcast(performance) with an oxygen mask. Then the sequence of the following performances were Hoot, interview, mistake, oh and gee. Their live performances were great...

Because of the limited seats, only quite a handful of sones/fans were at the recording. As for the remaining audience, they were other singers' fans so when its our girls' turn to record, many of them left. So there were not much audience for the second half of the recording. I'm kinda tired too...I was like sitting on a needle-bed and yet I saw such a cold reaction from the crowd. I rather they dont accept this schedule if they were to receive such a cold treatment...But I'm thankful that I saw such a glamorous stage perfs put on by our girls despite the cold treatment from the crowd...
Fany ah...thanks for all your hardwork...TT

Additional: The song that they used for the first dance stage is If you seek amy. And during that dance stage, fany was looking so charismatic. Fany proposed/suggested alot of ideas for the stage then discussed the ideas with the kids and they practiced it.

SeoHyun "being in the fake marriage with Jung YongHwa is a very valuable experience"

SNSD SeoHyun expressed her special feelings with CNBLUE Jung YongHwa on the 2nd during an interview at  SM Everysing music room in Apgujeong. SeoHyun revealed that she is satisfied with her fake mariage life on MBC's We Got Married.

SeoHyun said "after meeting Jung YongHwa in Inkigayo,  I gave him our CD. He said that he really likes our songs, and even trying really hard to follow our dance in 'Hoot'MV"

Hyoyeon jealously said "even though it was during broadcast, two of them were always together (the chinese words said something like the persons and the shadows do not separate), gave everyone who saw them goosebumps~"

Tiffany supported this couple by saying "SeoHyun is more expressive in this album. Seems like it is because of Jung YongHwa, SeoHyun even told him to pay extra attention on her own part in the song"

SeoHyun shyly expressed "sisters always tease me. they like to watch WGM more tham me, gave me lots of directions and opinions, they even encourage me to hold his hand"

SeoHyun said "nonetheless, this is a new experience, to me it is also a very valuable one"

SeoHyun mentioned that recently WGM aired the 200 days anniversary where Jung YongHwa gave her a Japan life guidebook. It gives her a lot of help.

SeoHyun said "we often have events in japan, and we don't know where to find food that we would like to try. Thanks to his book, we get to go to wellknown places to eat delicious food." Hyoyeon jealously commented "so nice", creating laughter.

SNSD is now promoting their mini album with the main title "Hoot"

SNSD is into the "Son Byungho Game"

As posted on soshified:
[My Daily Reporter Kang Sunae]
SNSD is into the "Son Byungho Game".
[Note: The Son Byungho game is explained later in the article.]

On November 2nd, SNSD held a press meeting with reporters at the Apgujung Everysing store. During this time, they talked about their successful entry into Japan and their sudden comeback into the Korean entertainment.

SNSD's schedule must be extremely packed with foreign activities, but they are continuing with activities in Korea as well with their "Hoot" comeback. Because of this, concerns of their health are rising amongst fans.

About this issue, Sunny said, "We like to refresh ourselves during our breaks rather than just resting. We like going places with each other or performing special stages. Even when we go to film something, if we have fun at the shooting, then we come back energized and recharged because of that. Even recently while we're going back and forth from Japan, the members play games every night at our dorm. If we enjoy our time like that, we are overflowing with energy."

Sunny also said, "We're really into the 'Son Byungho game' recently. We say things like, "Whoever likes sweet potatoes, fold a finger" or "fold a finger if you're married"".

The game was coined the "Son Byungho game" when the actor Son Byungho introduced the game on an episode of KBS2 TV's "Happy Together". The players in the game go around one at a time to say a statement. If that statement does not apply, the player has to "fold" a finger."
[Note: So for example, everybody holds out five fingers. If it's Sunny's turn, and she says "I like apples," all the members who don't like apples have to 'fold' a finger so they only have four fingers left.]

Tiffany added, "Whenever we hear that somebody is concerned for us, we are consoled and strengthened," relaying a thankful heart to the fans.

SNSD, who has made a comeback with "Hoot", will be going back and forth from Korea and Japan to rotate in activities.

Update: Apparently YongHwa also played this game on Happy Together. Thanks for the commenters below for pointing it out.

Here is a description by scatterbrain@soompi:
I dunno if anyone happy together where yonghwa was guesting, there was a game where they give out statements, and if the statement describes you, you have to fold your finger. if all your 5 fingers are folded, they will spray you with water....sorry for the confusing explanation, hope you all understand...

here's the important part!when the statement was"if you're married, fold your finger" and i think yonghwa did fold his finger. coz before this statement was said, he had folded one finger. and after that, we couldn't see him on screen, but the MCs pointed at him and said"three(meaning 3 fingers left) he did confess that he's married to hyun

SNSD share their thoughts on the YongSeo Couple

As posted on allkpop
The SNSD members cried “Jealous~” in unison as the topic of “YongSeo Couple” came up in their interview on November 2nd, causing Seohyun to blush in red.
Seohyun stated, “It seems like my unnies are interested more than me. They monitor the show often for me. Their attention must be due to the uniqueness of the relationship, right? Unnies keep telling me to take his hands. I’m embarrassed.”

The SNSD members elaborated on Seohyun’s change after the marriage. Tiffany said, “This album has tracks where her changed vocals really shine, she really improved. I guess there is emotion behind her voice? Her vocals and feel improved. I told them, ‘We have all got to date’.”

The romantic teasing did not stop even as Seohyun shoot her hands in denial. In fact, Seohyun turned redder with each shout of “Oh!!“, “Really?” and “yoohoo“.

Tiffany continued, “Truthfully, this has never happened for our maknae. These changes are really funny to us. She’s changed. She’s changed.” Taeyeon stated in her softest voice, “I was married too (to Jung Hyung Don), but forcefully divorced”, cracking up her members.

Seohyun: “Because of ‘We Got Married,’ I became known as sweet potato.

As posted on allkpop:

SNSD talks about their Japanese experience

Having made their comeback with “Hoot,” the members of SNSD recently met with reporters on November 2nd in order to share their thoughts on their achievements as the new Hallyu leaders.
- Do you feel the level of your popularity in Japan?

Taeyeon: “I was really surprised when I heard ‘Gee‘ as the ring tone of a random passerby. One time, a French person even noticed who we were.”
Tiffany: “I left the house with my face covered and went into the city. I saw a crowd of about 10 or so teenage girls taking a picture with our SNSD pose.”
Sooyoung: “I never feel our popularity so I always ask our manager. ‘Are we really that popular?’ We never meet anyone other than celebrities so it’s hard to feel it for ourselves. It still makes me proud when I see people that go, ‘Wow, it’s SNSD’ whenever we go to broadcast halls.

- Do your Japanese fans acknowledge each member like your Korean fans?

Taeyeon: “They can go on the internet so it’s easy to find out stuff about us like our personal nicknames and whatnot. I recently saw some fans that were holding up placards with my nickname, Taenggoo, and Sooyoung’s nickname, Piggy. There are even some fans that are trying to learn Korean as well.”
Seohyun: “Because of ‘We Got Married,’ I became known as sweet potato. Even in Shanghai, I saw a board that had ’sweet potato’ written on it. I wondered if they were referring to me and waved to them.

SeoHyun's Gift?

WGM Episode 30 cut off last Saturday just as SeoHyun pulled out her present for YongHwa from her bag. We'll have to stay tuned to find out what SeoHyun's gift is.

In the meantime, here are some pretty good observations and guesses by fans:

credit: SeoHwa soompi

 Indigo Pearl is the resort that SNSD stayed at while in Phuket early August. (Coincidentally indigo is also a shade of blue). Since Hyun had mentioned that she had gotten something for Yong from Thailand, it's entirely possible that the box is an Indigo Pearl box. What's inside is harder to guess.

Which means we'll need to stay tuned to find out ;)

Note: I feel really bad I couldn't find the original soompi post and credit the poster. Anyone saved it or can help this blogger out?

Eunhyuk: Also the last time you guys were here all together, Lee Teuk took very good care of maknae Seohyun. Everyone is pretty, but who do you think is the prettiest.
Lee Teuk: All 9 girls are very pretty for this album.
SNSD: Ayyyy~~~
Eun Hyuk: then in your opinion, who do you fits this concept the best?
Hyoyeon: Sooyoung! Her hair looks very good on her.
Yoona: We tease her saying that she looks like CN Blue Jung Shin.
Tiffany: I told her that if she doesn't put on a hairband, she looks just like him so I tell her to wear it all the time.
EunHyuk: oh they do kind of look alike.
