Girls’ Generation’s single, 소원을 말해봐 (Genie), was digitally released on June 22, 2009, as the lead single for their forthcoming mini-album.
If I had to express on a scale of one to ten how impressed I was after hearing 소원을 말해봐 (Genie), I’d probably have to go with a 9. After their ubiquitous pop number Gee, Girls’ Generation shelled out this bad boy, a mature beat-and-synth driven affair. This song contains one of the catchiest choruses I’ve heard in a while, and the simple English parts (I’m a genie for your wish) make it really memorable.
Summary: Yeah, Gee was fun in all its sugary pop glory, but THIS. I really don’t know if SNSD could have done better than this if they tried. Fun, sexy, classy, trendy – Genie has pretty much everything going for it. Highly recommended.
Single Grade: A+
