Girls' Generation subunit TaeTiSeo 或者 TTS for short recently released a winter mini-album with the banner "Dear Santa" on December 4th of this year.
Immediately upon release, "Dear Santa" topped on both domestic and international charts including iTunes where the album sang at the first place in nine countries including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Macau, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia, and Cambodia.
It also reached the 最佳, 返回页首 10 in albums chart in many other countries such as Indonesia, Japan, Hungary, the Philippines, and Costa Rica. The album topped charts in 欧洲 and even climbed up to No.1 in the Pop Albums Chart in many Asian countries.
Domestically, the album comfortably received an all-kill staying at No.1 in eight various 音乐 charts like Genie, Melon, Mnet, Naver, Olleh, Soribada, Bugs, and Monkey several hours after its release.
Meanwhile, the 粉丝 are growing fonder of member Seohyun, who is also the youngest and, apparently, the leader of TaeTiSeo, for her contributions to the lyrics of the very 标题 "Dear Santa." It can be recalled that Seohyun also participated in 写作 of the lyrics of "Only U" for their 前一个 mini-album "Holler" which was released last September.
This signals a very gracious opportunity for 更多 artists in SM Entertainment to 加入 in the production of their albums. It is not uncommon knowledge in the K-Pop 音乐 industry how little the company provides for the artists to contribute for their own music.
Perhaps that tight culture is slowly being reformed as Girls' Generation's leader and first soloist Taeyeon has also been reported to have participated in the lyric 写作 of her 标题 track "I." Before that, the girl group's junior Jonghyun also wrote the lyrics of his group SHINee's 标题 track "View" although he has been 写作 some of their songs way before.
Being busy for Girls' Generation's 音乐会 tour "Phantasia" in different countries including 日本 in which they are currently in for the 说 tour, the girls of TaeTiSeo Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun have ended their performances in weekly 音乐 shows in Korea. The last stop was in SBS Inkigayo on December 6th where they grazed the audience with "Merry Christmas" and "Dear Santa."
Just like gift giving during Christmas, part of the proceeds from the sales of Girls' Generation TaetiSeo's "Dear Santa" will be 给 to UNICEF as a donation along with EXO's 圣诞节 mini-album "Sing for You."
