It has been a while since we’ve seen everyone’s favorite second-generation group Girls’ Generation. While each of the members has been busy with their solo activities and careers, the group has not gotten together as a whole in a long time. The last time we saw all the eight members together was in 2017 during their sixth studio album ‘Holiday Night’. Fans had no idea that after wrapping up promotions of ‘Holiday Night’, that would be the last they would see the whole group.

After a couple of months, SM Entertainment disclosed that three of the members — Tiffany, Sooyoung and Seohyun — had not renewed their contract. Instead, they were focusing on their individual careers. But the rest of the members had signed the contract and the group as a whole had not disbanded. The last information regarding the status of the group was that discussions were taking place on how the group would carry out future activities. But we might see Girls’ Generation much sooner than expected.

Girls’ Generation to reunite after 4 years

Looks like 2021 is the year for SONEs (Girls’ Generation fans) with the group returning on a variety show. In fact, a few weeks ago, the group’s leader Taeyeon came back with her latest single ‘Weekend’ and fans were overjoyed as they got to see her promote it on music shows. It has also been announced that Hyoyeon is set to come back as DJ HYO in August. Additionally, we get to see Tiffany as a mentor on the Mnet survival show ‘Girls Planet 999’. We also heard from Yuri during an interview about her latest K-drama that the group was planning on returning soon.

Taeyeon too hinted that the girls were planning something and they were constantly in touch with each other. It was just a matter of time. And for that, we have to thank comedian and host Yoo Jae-suk and his variety shows. Known for doing the impossible, he created project groups that included the likes of Rain, Lee Hyori, Uhm Jung-hwa, Jessi and Hwasa. His latest project group MSG Wannabe was also noticed by Ed Sheeran and BTS. And now SONEs have put their whole trust in him, stating that if anyone can bring Girls’ Generation together, it is him.

A spokesperson of Jae-suk’s variety show ‘Yoo Quiz on the Block’ announced that they were currently working around each of the member’s schedules and were trying for an appearance of the full group. While the date is not yet confirmed, the discussions are going in the right direction, and they are positive that they will be able to unite all of the girls for a variety show appearance. Having debuted on August 5, 2007, many are hoping that this will be some sort of 14th-anniversary celebration. The show airs every Wednesday, and with August 5 falling on a Thursday this year, it would be the perfect timing.
