Girls’ Generation – TTS

Debuting in 2012, TTS is the first subunit of the South Korean girl group Girls’ Generation under SM Entertainment. Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun who were the lead vocalists of Girls’ Generation are the members of this new subunit. Till now they have released three extended plays: Twinkle, Holler, and Dear Santa. Eventually, this group arose after most of the members of Girls’ Generation decided to do their own activities outside the group, like shifting their focus to television dramas, variety programs, and other activities. Since the hiatus of the main Girls’ Generation, Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun still wanted to work in the music world. So, on April 19th, 2012, SM Entertainment formed a group of which they said, “The members of the unit are gathered according to the music and concept of each of them to create a new group album.” Finally, TTS, or also called TaeTiSeo, was officially launched, and no one could underestimate them since their voices were the ultimate vocals in Girls’ Generation.

2nd EP – Holler

Holler is their second EP after Twinkle, which was released digitally on September 16th, 2014. This second EP broke the Billboard World Album Chart and the Gaon weekly chart reaching the number 1 position. Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun said on their interview, “This album was really personal for us and it was fun… to put out a more raw side of our music… the music we put together has so many layers, so much more depth to it in terms of sound, choruses or harmonizing together.” They said that the purpose of this group is to be vocally entertaining. However, the girls did not stop there, TaeTiSeo also created a variety show program about their daily lives which was their project during the promotional album.

Music Videos

The music video of “Holler,” is quite entertaining as the shoot direction is different. It started with one by one appearance in a luxurious building, then they went missing on the camera and came up suddenly like magic. The music video is really interesting and unique, especially underlying the extraordinary voices of the three of them. The song “Holler” starts with the verse: “Ladies and Gentleman, can you hear me?” which is often said as a remark of the Moulin Rouge cabaret and Mizrock‘s B-side “Hello.” This music video is also a combination of a 60s vibe and a piece of modern pop music. One of the reasons that made this song popular is the catchy part of the lyrics in the refrain, “holler, holler, holler,” which makes the chorus easy to remember and sing. No doubt Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun can bravely pull off any kind of fashion style. They went glitz and glam which created glamour and the visual effect of a goddess. Must watch above!



In fact, Tiffany is the one who acts as the visual director of the concept of the “Holler” music video. “Holler” was digitally released on September 16th, 2014, and physically on September 18th, 2014, by S. M. Entertainment. Here is a part of the lyrics that caught people’s attention: Ladies and Gentlemen, Can you hear me? I hope you are ready for a fast ride Cause that’s what we’re going for tonight So sit back and buckle up Cause you’ll be racing with the stars tonight Listen! Wow! Catch the video now!

Adrenaline (아드레날린)

The song “Adrenaline” is actually even more catchy than “Holler.” Here is a glimpse of the lyrics of this song: What is this feeling? Am I the only one who doesn’t know? You’ve been hiding your black hole A new world greets me This is my heart’s joke An illusion called Cupid There’s no such thing as forever But your eyes are shaking me up My eyes Only look at you My breath Is quickening My body Isn’t listening to my heart I’m falling, I’m falling for you You’re special, my adrenaline Oh sweet, you pull me in Oh wait, I’m only looking for you I’m falling, I’m falling for you You’re mysterious, my adrenaline So good, I can’t stop So cool, I’m addicted to you I’m falling, I’m falling for you Adrenaline ah adrenaline ah adrenaline ah You’re already in my radius My eyes are already a pair of binoculars Other guys are outside my vision Only you are growing bigger Just like Newton’s apple The secret to the theory of relativity You pull me in more and more The world around you is swaying

Whisper (내가 네게)

“Whisper” is an R&B slow jam backtrack that smoothly fits their diamond vocals. Here is a part of the lyrics of the song: Oh Baby, come to me little by little No Baby, not too fast The moon is bright tonight Your moonlight shines on me Your moonlight shines My eyes that are looking at you Are filled with the starlight Until this night is over I’ll shine brightly, I’m your starlight My shy trembling My racing heart for you I can’t hide it, no no no Now I’ll confess Yeah Yeah Yeah Softly touching lips A kiss that sweetly melts like cotton candy I’ll close my eyes for you So I can only hear you, ooh Gently come closer to me My favorite moment I’ll tell you I’ll secretly tell you In your dreamy and warm embrace I’m held tonight I wanna whisper From me to you, I’ll tell you The pain I’ve hidden away until now Has all disappeared I’m weak and soft-hearted But I’ll strongly embrace you It’s like my heart Has fallen into a mysterious magic spell I wanna show you Before the day is over Your soft lips A kiss that softly melts like caramel I’ll close my eyes for you Yeah baby it’s for you yeah
