They have quite a few tv appearances lined up ranging from heavyweight of the tv talk show world, David Letterman and Live! with Kelly.
Girls’ Generation is the third group to join the race of making an impact or about to embark for success on Western soil following the earlier mentioned, Wonder Girls and other popular girl group, 2NE1 set to join the battle for US/European stardom. 2NE1 have yet to start formal promotion plans for themselves, however their clip for hit song, ‘I am the best’ is gathering steam with 31 million hits on YouTube and the majority of those views have been from non-Korean markets.
