Girls’ Generation (SNSD) talked about the times when the group fell victim to the Black Ocean.
During March 17’s broadcast of SBS’s Healing Camp, the SNSD members guested on the show to share ‘SNSD’s Five Daebak Incidents.’
Explaining one of the five incidents, Yoona said, “At the time when we were promoting the first album Into the New World in 2007, we performed in Dream Concert, and faced ten minutes of boycott. We started performing in front of the dark audience without any lights or sound, as if no one was there.”
“When we went up to the stage, everyone had turned off their light sticks. We could only see the pink sticks from our fans,” reminisced the SNSD member.

Taeyeon also shared, “When we performed for SM Town concert in China, we saw some fans making the ‘X’ with their red light sticks,” to which Yoona added, “I thought they were making hearts at first, so I started performing harder,” bringing out laughter.
MC Yuri, who was a member of a first generation girl idol group, FIN.K.L, also shared her painful memories of the Black Ocean, saying, “The fans actually turned around in their seats. I had to perform by looking at their backs. But now I can understand why they did that. The female fans just really liked their male stars.”
