History

Pre-debut
Each member was professionally trained in singing and dancing, but some were also selected to be trained in acting and modeling. Many of the members already had made names for themselves in the Korean entertainment industry through their participation in magazine ads, television commercials, and small television appearances. Before their debut, there were rumours that the group were going to be called "Super Girls", after their male counterpart, Super Junior.


2007: Debut and first album
In July 2007, Girls' Generation had their first performance on M.net M! Countdown. Although this performance was never broadcast on television, many videos were shot by fans and uploaded onto the internet. The song the girls performed was called "Into the New World" (Korean: 다시 만난 세계), which became their first single. A show documenting the girls' debut titled "M.Net's Girls Go To School" was filmed during this time.

The group began promoting the single soon after its release. Girls' Generation performed their single on SBS's Inkigayo (literally Popular Songs), MBC's Show! Music Core, and on KBS's Music Bank.

The group began its album promotion on January 2009 on MBC Show! Music Core. They sang their new single, "Gee", and "Him Nae/Way To Go", another track from the Gee mini-album.
