sandalima dewmini my favourite Korean music band is girls generation. i really like song " gee " I love so much.

victoria i really like the song"i got a boy" by girls generation. My sister played it on her phone a long time ago and said her friend was korean and loved the song. Ever since then me and my two brothers would dance in the living room, trying to force out the correct lyrics from our mouths.

Ps: we still do it today !!!

love the song! :) tks!
