Name of Fan Club: Soshified

Year formed: 2008

What is your role in this fanclub?: Founder

Was there any special reason that led you to form this club/gave you the idea to form this club?: Before starting the club, I would sub videos and post to other forums. When I saw how much people were looking for and enjoying my videos, I decided to create my own space so people can come have a common place to gather and talk about SNSD without feeling isolated. In the earlier days of SNSD, there weren't events like KCON where like-minded people could gather, so having this space was special for many fans. I also loved how SNSD was a role model to other girls so part of my mission in starting the site was also to empower other girls.

What do you like about SNSD?: People ask this question often, I've been following SNSD for 9 years now (since 2007) so I think my love for them goes beyond their music and typical answers like how beautiful they are. To me those are givens. Honestly, I think every SONE can agree that their love for SNSD revolves around the Girls' love for SONE as well as each other. It's a rare relationship that we really cherish. Really it's almost like we're a family, where even though there are bad moments and there are good moments, our love is unconditional. ♥

Have you ever met the group/members of the group?:

Yes! I've met all of them. I think the only thing that sucks about meeting them is you constantly want the opportunity to see them and greet them. It's almost like a drug. They are literally the nicest and most accommodating girls that never forgets a fan. ♥

What events does your fan club do?: We host a variety of fan projects every year. From Anniversary gifts to the members to hosting real life meet-ups for SONE around the world to gather at. We've donated over $100,000 to various charities under Girls' Generation and have also bought billboards to support them! :D

How do you communicate with other members in your fan club?: We communicate through our forums (Soshified.com), but we also have a strong social media presence on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Proximity of members (all from same the country/city, etc)?: International! :D

What message would you like to give to SNSD fans around the world?: Even though it's been 9 years, let's continue to support Girls' Generation for 90 years and more. Let's continue to sail towards forever! ♥♥♥
