Girls’ Generation‘s comeback TV special, ‘Girls’ Generation’s Romantic Fantasy‘, suffered from surprisingly low viewer ratings.


According to AGB Nielson Media Research, the January 1st broadcast of ‘Girls’ Generation’s Romantic Fantasy’ achieved a lackluster 3.8% viewer rating.


The comeback special was filmed with 400 fans on set and unveiled the first ever live performance of title track, “I Got A Boy“, as well as an interview segment during which the members shared their personal stories. The highly anticipated broadcast left many fans questioning the low ratings but it could be because it aired on New Years and late in the evening (11:45PM).


Meanwhile, KBS 2TV‘s ‘Win Win‘ and SBS‘ ‘Thank You‘ garnered 11.4% and 7.4% viewer ratings, respectively.

1. [+641, -133] Their songs get trashier with each release ;;

2. [+510, -204] ㅋㅋㅋ People kept saying the song sounds similar to Crayon so I went and listened to it for the first time and... are you guys deaf? Just because it's a club tune, you guys are making that omparison?? There's such a huge difference between the two songs

3. [+336, -92] An entire show dedicated to their comeback seems a bit overkill

4. [+150, -56] Daebak... disappointed

5. [+148, -68] Seohyun's face has really swelled up ㅠㅠ she looks like a piggy bank

6. [+142, -209] I thought the song would be an utter failure when I first listened to it but the performance was great and now I like the song ㅎ

7. [+135, -31] If a rookie group came out with this song, would it have caught this much attention? Honestly speaking, the song itself is bad

8. [+118, -23] I served in the army so there's no doubt that I'm a Soshi fan but wow, I'm going crazy ㅋㅋㅋ maybe it's because I'm used to being too impressed by Psy's stages lately and I expected there to be a bit of a let down in SNSD's comeback but this is just so bad ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+105, -166] Everyone had a great live, it was an amazing stage!! The best

10. [+103, -31] I'm a guy and I'm losing interest in SNSD with each release. I think they're losing their worth as a product... And they're 25 years old now, their name's a bit of a mismatch.




Article: 'SNSD Comeback Show' viewer ratings in the 3%, what explains the low number?

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+651, -41] I didn't even know they were having a show..

2. [+645, -37] A common misunderstanding with broadcast officials is that they seem to think they will get high viewer ratings no matter what if
there is an idol on the show. Inkigayo's viewer ratings are in the 4% range, and don't they remember that Sunday Night tried to salvage itself
by bringing in SNSD and still failed... Idols are only popular with their specific fanbase.. They have nothing to do with viewer ratings.

3. [+613, -93] Isn't this to be expected? Who would start the first day of the New Year watching some idol's comeback show unless they're pathetic with nothing else to do? Only otakus or elementary/junior high school students on winter break would do that. Do you guys have nothing better to do with your time? Teach yourself something new in that time.

1. [+427, -79] The song is so trashy, why so much media play over it? I'm sick of it already

2. [+354, -40] Looks like SM power is strong. They managed to land an 11oclock spot on a new year day for their main artist and turning it
into a comeback show.

3. [+327, -43] Am I the only one that thinks their style overlaps with f(x)

4. [+94, -8] The song is trashier than Super Junior, more convoluted than f(x), and makes about as much sense as Orange Caramel

5. [+91, -21] The song is trash, what do you need to watch the stage for;;

1. [+286, -42] Yoona, pease don't rap... I'm seriously so embarrassed for them... Why do they think they can pull hip hop off ㅡㅡ Practice singing in that time instead... I really hate it when idols rap because they can't sing

2. [+248, -23] Please don't rap ㅠㅠ please ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

3. [+232, -20] Mmm... Yes... I felt like I was listening to many songs at once..

4. [+63, -13] Everyone who said the performance would be better than the song lied

5. [+59, -9] Seriously, don't rap. Actually, don't even call the song hip hop. Just stick to your concept like your name, something girlish and sweet. Not only do they not match hip hop but I almost grew 8 legs out of embarrassment for them when they said A YO GG.

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+232, -28] This is the first time I thought I would lose my ears while listening to a song

2. [+205, -22] Sunny's gotten a lot more stable compared to the past. Yoona and Sooyoung just sounded like they were singing a children's song.. Everyone kept saying all of their lives improved so I gave it a view but you really can't call their level of talent that of a singer with 5 years of experience under their belt... They're just pretty, it doesn't seem like they have any intention of improving their vocals. Yuri and Hyoyeon, however, really did improve.

3. [+200, -23] All of the replies calling the performance pretty?? Yeah they're pretty but you seem to forget that their main career is singing ㅋㅋ A singer needs to be able to sing well regardless of how ugly they are. It looks like they're just relying on otakus calling them pretty no matter what. SNSD needs to practice their singing more aside from a few of them. And people keep blaming their composer for the song but that's double standards right there. Did Super Junior ever write their own songs?

1. [+169, -20] Did Sooyoung get work done on her face? They should try to be discreet with these things. Men usually can't tell but I can tell right away

2. [+158, -27] I like Soshi... but this song is so bad.. Can't they please change to another song ㅠㅠ Is it too late?? Am I the only one that thinks this song is ridiculous...

3. [+147, -21] Exactly what is fresh and amazing about this? SNSD seems to be getting lost in the mountains with each release. They were legendary during Genie, but their quality has been on the downfall since then. I thought at least up to The Boys, it was still worth a listen but I don't even know what to say about I Got a Boy... It must be so difficult for their fans to shield this...

perhaps it's interesting to point out that idols' comeback specials don't really get good ratings. According AGB Nielsen Media, BoA's comeback scored 3.2%, and Big Bang's, 3.0%.
EDIT: The ratings I mentioned are only for 2012 btw
