HYOYEON
It has already been 10 years since Soshi and SONE became one, first of all, clap clap clap, many congratulations on 10 years! ❤ And! Ta dah~~ 10th anniversary gift!! Our 6th full length album has come out~~^^ Not only the title songs, but we really like all of the songs on this album, so we prepared it excitedly, hehe. There are so many people to whom we want to express our thankful and loving hearts. First of all, manager-nims who spend the most time stuck to Soshi! (Sungwoo oppa, Yongdeok oppa, Minjin unnie, Sungjoon oppa, Seungwoo-sshi, Songsook-sshi, Changju-sshi) You work so hard, hehe. Thank you for being with pretty Soshi for a long time. ❤ And everyone who worked on this album with Soshi this time, Heemok oppa, Ara-sshi, and staff, thank you so much to everyone~! I remember each and every one of you. Yes, alright~~ And our SNSD members! It has been over 16 years that we’ve spent together, where we practiced, debuted together, received the title of the best girl group and we are now celebrating our 10th anniversary. Thank you to my very precious members, I love you ❤❤ Our SONE who cheered us on and gave us lots of love so SNSD could always shine bright for a long time!! It’s reassuring to have SONE by my side, thank you and I love you~~❤ Lastly, thank you to Lee Sooman teacher, President Kim Youngmin, CMO Nam Soyoung, CEO Han Semin and director Tak Youngjoon for their on-going support^^!!

SEOHYUN
Hello~ Our SONE, my people who I’m thankful for… I still can’t forget our first meeting~ At SNSD’s first debut stage where fear and nerves co-existed, we were able to have courage because of your warm gaze of support and your loud cheers~!! You were always there behind and beside us, like a shadow, and you became a big shade that protected us, and because you were always with us, you don’t know how reassured we felt… Now SONE are comfortable like friends and have become a precious existence like family!! Each and every one of the countless memories that we created together have become a part of my life and it will remain forever in my mind as the most sparkling memories of my life… We experienced so many moments together… In countless moments that only we can feel, we became each other’s strengths and matured together… Because there was all of you who gave us unchanging love, the person that I am today and the SNSD that we are today could exist… I’m truly, truly lucky to have met all of you in my life. To all of you who are giving us love without change, I will become dependable artist Seohyun who you can be proud of…^^ I’m thankful and I thank you again, to the point where there aren’t enough words to express it… I love all of you, exactly with this feeling… ❤ My unnies… Our unnies who I love~~ Now really… You know that we all know what each and every one is thinking just by looking at each other’s gazes and expressions~ Hehe. It has almost been over 10 years since we’ve been together… My unnies who I love who are really beyond family now!! All of the times that we spent together for 10 years are passing by like a kaleidoscope… Times we laughed together, times we hurt each other, times we resented one another, times we were happy together, times that were difficult, times that were fun… Because we were together for all of these times, it was precious, I was happy, and I could withstand it… Our time when we became each others’ strength… For me, all of these times have become the most precious memory that I will remember forever… In every moment, unnies were beside me so I was never alone and I felt reassured… Meeting unnies was truly big luck in my life… I’m very thankful, I’m thankful again, I’m sorry and I love you… You know my heart, right~ ❤ Even if 10 years pass, or 100 years pass, I will still be SNSD’s maknae Seohyunnie… ❤

YOONA
High school girls who would kick diligently have already spent 10 years of time and are preparing such a cool 10th anniversary album. It still doesn’t feel real but it’s really cool and I’m happy that we were able to reach such a milestone day! It’s very difficult to write about each and every person as there have been so many relationships up to now. First of all, my family who is always beside me to become my strength and our staff, who gave me countless help, cheer me on and work hard so I could become the SNSD that I am today, thank you so much. When I look back, I spent my teens and 20s, an important time for growth, radiantly together with our girls. SNSD is an existence that gave me countless opportunities and a huge sense of self-esteem. I am most thankful to our members who I love, who are my unnies, my dongsaeng and also my friends!! Lastly and most importantly – our SONE. Don’t forget that SNSD is here now and Yoona is here, because our SONE was here! To me, SONE’s love and encouragement is always a restless and biggest source of strength~❤ SONE and members. As we always have, going forward, whenever we are happy or things are difficult, I want us to comfort each other and tell each other to have strength~ Many, many congratulations on 10 years and going forever, I love you forever for the rest of my life~~~ Thank you all for always standing by my side ❤

SOOYOUNG
When no words seem like they will provide comfort, when you feel alone, when you feel like these things are only happening to you… When you feel like the world is unfair, when everything feels cold and heartless to you. If one person received comfort through our smiling faces, our hopeless cuteness or our clear and pure singing, it made me think that the last 10 years of my life were enough with that… That’s the thought that came to my mind. It makes me think SNSD’s identity is ‘warm comfort’. Right now in this moment, if there’s someone somewhere listening to “Into the New World” with renewed dreams, I hope this album is a gift that opens up a new and different world… That is the definition and meaning of our 10th anniversary. I hope countless people overflowing with energy who were comforted by us gather and become an even warmer generation. That generation which is still to come will be even more beautiful than Girls’ Generation. ^^ I want to thank all of these people for existing.

TAEYEON
In all of my time as SNSD, I don’t think there was a time when I had as many thoughts as this time. It’s an album that’s that much more meaningful. Thank you so much to staff and all SM employees who worked hard together with us and made our 10th anniversary possible. And more than anything, our members ❤ We grew up together since we were young and we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary… Thank you for protecting SNSD and let’s be together for a long time going forward ❤ Lastly, the reason that SNSD could exist! Our SONE ❤ Thank you so much for always giving us love and being by our side so SNSD could reach our 10th anniversary. Let’s grow old together and meet for a long, long time in health ❤ I sincerely love you and thank you. Let’s go for a long time.

YURI
The reason why this day didn’t feel that special, like a birthday you have every year, is because I’ve never once thought about this as our end… To us, the tenth year is only 10, merely a passing number^^ 10 years of time have indifferently passed and the fact that we are still together today means that to us, we are already each others’ greatest gifts. I’m still thankful, you’re still precious to me and also, I’m sorry… I love you members, a family who loves even my pains! Mom, dad, oppa, first-born Hani ❤, second-born DooE ❤, our SM family who’s always with us, each and every precious person who helped make a happy day like today… Thank you so much. Be sure to grab the wish (SONE) that has grown with two hands, don’t let go of it. We wanted to say these earnest words, that my life-long wish (SONE) is only you^^ [Referencing lyrics to “오랜 소원 (It’s You)”, a song that she penned for the album.]

SUNNY
God, who is my source of strength, I’m always thankful and I praise you. Our family~ I really love you a lot. Thank you for always being my source of comfort. I will be even better going forward. Lee Sooman teacher. Thank you for constantly trusting me for over 10 years. I respect you. President Kim Youngmin. CMO Nam Soyoung. CEO Han Semin. Thank you. I love you! My nest, SM family, who always become my strength. Thank you. I will work hard going forward so I can be an artist you can be proud of. Our managers who I love and hate~ Taksama. Kkong leader. Deok team leader. Minjin unnie. Sungjoon oppa~ And different managers who I need to become closer with going forward! You are the only people who I can open up my heart to and share opinions comfortably. I’m always thankful. Please take good care of us going forward. Our staff who we’ve spent a long time with! God Sookyung. Heewon director. Other experts who we’ll continue relationships with going forward~ You work especially hard with me, who has no interest in her appearance… But thank you for always making me pretty! Let’s be together going forward~ People who I love who I drink or eat with when I’m having a hard time or when I’m happy and comfort me my patting shoulders, or patting my butt… I’m really thankful. Going forward, if I suddenly contact you and say I want to see you and I hope you’ll continue to gather, meet and be with me. I always owe a lot to you. Thank you. Members who I love~ What my heart feels for you cannot be adequately expressed with words. For being together with me for over half of my life so far, for withstanding when things are difficult and for laughing with me when things are happy, thank you so much. Whatever happens to me going forward, I will always be “SNSD” together with you. Let’s not fall down in the face of whatever wind that comes our way. Let’s hold on to each other and not let go. Thank you. My SNSD. And our “SONE” who continuously sent us love so that “SNSD” can exist. I’m sorry that we couldn’t always have happy things happen to you.  And I don’t think I can say that only endlessly happy things will happen going forward. However, what I can promise is that I will always be sincere going forward, like how there has never been a moment up to now where our hearts were not sincere. I was so thankful for your heart that I sometimes felt sorry and I was afraid. But when you think about it, all of those times have collectively created a solid relationship between us. I’m so thankful. I love you. Now, I trust you wholeheartedly. So I hope “SONE” can trust me and we can be more comfortable. I will express more. I hope we can love each other going forward as we have up to now. Thank you for allowing me to give my best efforts. I will work hard to become an even better person going forward. Thank you for being my “SONE”. I love you.

“HOLIDAY” VERSION ‘THANKS TO SNSD’

YOONA
I can’t believe we are a group that’s celebrating our 10th anniversary, we are so cool… ❤ Our SNSD who radiantly spent our youth together ^^ Going forward, let’s be together for a long, long time like we are now. I love you, members ❤

SEOHYUN
Unnies~~ It’s me~ It’s unnies’ maknae maknae makdoongie Seohyun!! Keke. I can’t believe it has already been over 10 years since we’ve been together… Time passes really fastㅠ Right…? Now no one makes fun of us for being young.. but since we were really young, we grew up sharing and feeling everything together and because unnies were there, I could withstand difficult and exhausting moments and I could overcome them.. Of course, there were times we resented one another and hurt one another but through those experiences, we understood one another better and our hearts for one another deepened~ It must have been difficult because of maknae who has a lot of greed, is overflowing with drive, nags a lot and is inflexible but thank you so, so much for loving even that side of me and cherishing me~ There were many times where I couldn’t express my heart toward unnies well because my expressions were clumsy. Unnies who are always beside me sometimes felt natural so there were times when I didn’t realize that gratefulness and preciousness. Because we were together, we were happy and because we are together, I dream of days in the future that will be even happier.. Wherever, whenever we are, even if time passes, the one thing that is definite is that all of the time we created together will be forever and that going forward, SNSD will be forever too… With all of my heart, I sincerely love you… My unnies ❤ Unnies’ forever maknae Seohyun

SOOYOUNG
Members who were there at the same time, in the same situation, in the same moment, in the same mood as me. There are 7 others of me, and because I wasn’t alone, I was able to come to 10 years. Moods that only we know, memories that only we know, sighs that only we know. I’m happy because I can share this overflowing happiness of the 10th anniversary with you. I love you ❤

SUNNY
I love you going forward, and you might laugh saying it’s hasty but… with sincerity, I love you to forever

HYOYEON
Times that I will never forget,, Because you girls were there.. For me, it was time that felt too difficult at times but because I was together with you girls, I didn’t know it was difficult, I was able to overcome a lot, and I was happy.. I will always be with you girls and I will triumph over a lot. I love you.

YURI
Hyoyeonnie, Sooyoungie, Taeyeonnie, Tiffany, Sunny, Seohyunnie, Yoona who were always with me during the same time, thanks to you girls, I think I laughed a lot and cried a lot at the center of the world^^ Truthfully, I still don’t feel the meaning of the time that is the 10th anniversary.. because I believe that you will forever be my friend and family like how you are by my side right now! Thank you, I’m sorry and I love you.

TIFFANY
Happy 10 years and to many more to come! You are my forever & always! I love you, girls*

TAEYEON
You girls are truly incredible! You girls are my past, my present and my future. I love you Soshi ❤

“HOLIDAY” VERSION ‘THANKS TO SONE’

YOONA
Thank you so, so much for being with us for SNSD’s 10th anniversary~ Because all of you were here, the cool SNSD that we are now could exist! Going forward, be together with SNSD ❤ I love you.

SEOHYUN
When I would laugh, in front of my eyes, there were innocent child-like SONE who were happy and laughing with me and when I was hurting, there were mom-like SONE who would tear up and be hurting even more than me… When I’ve lost my way, there was always lighthouse-like SONE… If someone insulted me, there was SONE who was dependably on my side who protected me until the end… In every moment and memories of the last 10 years, SONE had a place like this.. Thank you so, so much for holding our hands tightly for a long time…. Our memories will be forever, and my heart that loves SONE will be forever too… I love you ❤ And going forward, I will love you a lot too

YURI
Even though I can’t always be with you, you’re much more precious than the indifferent things that are always with me… I love our current appearance. And our appearance that will change with time too… Like how I was your dream, now my dream is you too.

SUNNY
I reflected back on my life because of you. And I braced my current heart once again. I want a future with you. You are very precious to me. I hope you trust me. And I sincerely love you.

TAEYEON
Our fans, whose existence is too hard to express in words ❤ You’re so precious and thank you^^ Whatever we do, whenever and wherever, SONE always dependably protect us and give us strength ❤ Let’s watch each other for a long time like this

TIFFANY
“Even if a long time passes and yours and my appearances change a bit, I want to dream with you forever like this, you’ve become my wish (SONE), you’ve become my trust, even if long eras pass, I want to dream with you forever.” (Lyrics of “I Want To Dream With You Forever”)
Many, many sincere congratulations for the 10th anniversary. Thank you & sending all my love.

HYOYEON
Because SONE is here, I’ve always been able to start challenges, instead of end. Even if I say thank you so much to SONE, who have been my big support system and strength, until my mouth wears down, it will not be enough. The memories we’ve made together are so precious, the time we’re spending together right now are so happy and the time we’ll spend together going forward makes my heart flutter and I’m anticipating it! I want to dream with you forever, SONE.

SOOYOUNG
I’ll be turning thirty soon and I feel like I’ve become a child who is dancing looking only at her parents at a recital. I want confirmation from SONE that we did well coming to this point, and that we’re still doing well and that we’re still pretty  and I wanted to show you first. When I see you being satisfied while looking at us, that makes me the happiest in the world. Because I want to hear “As expected, it’s SNSD”, because so many people are watching us, I thought that we needed to thoroughly prepare because of that burden and responsibility, but the people I want confirmation from and want to hear compliments of “you did well” from is SONE, and I felt that even more so while preparing this album. If you say ‘you did well’ to us, that’s enough. Whatever happens, if you like it, we like it too ^__^ Thank you for allowing me to run on stage, with your sparkling eyes. Without your gazes, we wouldn’t have been able to make these 10 years. I love you ❤
