Putting to rest any fears of a group disbandment, member Yuri has confirmed that the girls will return some time this year with a new album and a more mature image, but unfortunately failed to provide a specific date for the group's big comeback.
“Girls’ Generation is slowly preparing an album," she revealed at a press conference. "We are working hard in order to show an even more mature image within the year. Please look forward to it.”
The girls are also preparing a new Japanese single, although again, there's still no release date for it.
While Girls' Generation have been working hard on new music and various other activities, ex-member Jessica has been keeping busy as a celebrity socialite in China, attending endless red carpet events and promoting her fashion brand wherever possible.
Hopefully both Jessica and SNSD will have a lot of good stuff to bring us this year!
Twitter just released their official list of the most-active music fan bases this week, and you might be surprised by who made the cut.
This is yet another big victory for Girls' Generation, who are already the most-viewed girl group on YouTube.
Besides Girls' Generation, K-pop boy band BIGBANG came in at No. 18 thanks to the efforts of their VIPs.
K-pop princesses Girls' Generation are set to make a comeback early next year with a brand new Japanese single.
Not only will it be the group's first J-pop single since Galaxy Supernova was released a year-and-a-half ago, it'll also be their first new music since member Jessica Jung was fired in late September.
The remaining Girls' Generation members just wrapped up their special Tokyo Dome concert last night for 50,000 fans, while Jessica recently performed with rapper Ja Rule in Las Vegas and is currently promoting a signature line of $200 scarves in China.
It'll be interesting to see how the group's first release without Jessica does on the charts; do you think they'll tank, or come back stronger than ever before?
