The I Got A Boy "Controversy" Examined by ‘My Daily’ Writer Lee Seungrok
To say the least, it’s clear that Girls’ Generation didn’t release a song that’s like every other song. There was no girl group before Girls’ Generation with such bitter controversy over one song. Controversies girl groups get caught up in are usually over “suggestive” things: suggestive dancing or outfits that expose too much skin. However, people are talking not about their choreography or outfits, but about Girls’ Generation’s song.
What kind of song is “I Got A Boy” to have people divided into either “liking” or “hating” it?( "Through Girls’ Generation’s selection of “I Got A Boy”, they’ve broken away from limitations and the currently existing road of girl groups."Collapse )

though its main focus is igab, it touches upon a lot about girl groups in general. i really like how the writer discerns "mature" from "sexy". a recommended read!
