Chavryl didn't attend school enough to be considered educated enough to be able to speak the English language. She was too busy assaulting black people and drinking, then she had sex with her label CEO, Simon Cowell and will.i.am and she's where she is today.

Let's be honest, Interscope doesn't care about anyone that isn't named Lady Gaga or Eminem when he's releasing an album. I'm so against a US debut, who the fuck needs the US, SNSD can make 10x more money (because that's all SM cares about) in Japan than they can in the US. Is it just for the concerts?

SNSD does what you could call the Asian equivalent to Britney Spears during her first single release. By this I mean, SNSD artist does not come for extensions, weaves or wigs, no my dear Koreaboos, SNSD will come for your real hair and will literally rip the hair follicle out.

But SNSD's career trajectory has followed a different route completely. They were like 9 rihanna's, scoring moderate hits and then they had their umbrella moment. Difference is, nobody beat them and their presence in the Korean industry is unrivalled.
