Fans of Girls' Generation know that nothing much can be done about the lack of activities for the girl group that dominated the entire second generation of K-pop as the group has been inactive since 2017. However, with the 15th anniversary since their debut approaching, fans are now getting more and more hopeful as a comeback seems inevitable. Member Taeyeon recently hinted at something that has caused fans to start theorizing.

All eight members of SNSD gathered together for the first time in years at the variety show, ‘You Quiz on the Block’ in late 2021, which soon sparked comeback rumors as the official Twitter layout of the group was suddenly changed. However, nothing came out of it, leaving fans heartbroken. On March 16, a video call between Taeyeon and a fan hinted at a possible SNSD comeback that has caused unrest in the Girls’ Generation fandom.

Is a Girls’ Generation comeback possible in 2022?

On the other hand, some fans believe that this is the most ideal time for SM Entertainment to have a comeback for the veteran girl group. However, many conditions stand in the way of the girls being open to still be a part of the group in the years that follow. Though SNSD has not officially disbanded, all eight members have been rather occupied with their personal lives as well as their flourishing solo careers, which means that some of them are busier than others.

Fans pointed out the current situation of Girls’ Generation members is not ideal for a full album comeback, which means they would be lucky to even get a single for the 15th anniversary. Trying to get all eight SNSD members together could itself lead to scheduling conflicts, which has led fans to take the comeback information with a grain of salt, though they'd be thankful for anything the members give them. One fan said, “Realistically if a comeback were to happen this year, I'm thinking simply a single.” Another remarked, “With how many of the girls are doing musicals or shooting dramas/movies, it would be VERY hard for schedules to line up properly, because they're so long to shoot.” Another fan said, “I'd say the 15th is their last realistic one left so they better capitalize it. What are the odds are all 8 members are unmarried, have no children, are active in the industry and want to comeback in 5 years?”

‘Gather up clowns’

Fans are calling out SM Entertainment for clowning them again and again with hopes of an SNSD comeback. One confused fan asked, “Where is my clown shoes?” and another responded, “Mine are on my feet. They never came off.” One fan joked, “Gather up clowns we wait till nothing happens until another big announcement.” One fan alleged, “I'm convinced it will happen and it will be OT8. SM can't delay this anymore if they want to keep the SNSD brand relevant. The 15th anniversary is a perfect opportunity,” to which another said, “Here you dropped your mask: 🤡”

One fan said, “Don't do that, don't give me hope.” Another fan said, “I will only believe when they start saying “will” or “actively working on it” or “tehee we’re recording something what could it be wink wink” instead of “might”.” One hopeful fan said, “I actually don't think this is terribly farfetched after watching their appearance on Yoo Quiz on the Block,” while another responded, “They've all been saying they're going to do something for their 15th, the question isnt "if" to me, the question is what.” Another fan said, “Don’t play with me taeyeon.”
