소 “So” – Stands for a girl group that communicates well.
Girls’ Generation has made it through the years together due to their strong bonds and friendships. During pre-debut, the members had daily 5 minute talks in which they would share their feelings over the course of the day and express anything they felt. That way, no bad emotions would build up, and all of the members could work together to create strong bonds and solid foundations of friendship.
Some notable moments of friendship from Girls’ Generation include: Yoona and Sunny holding hands and being the best of friends.
As well as messing around with each other on social media.
And even throwing the most incredible birthday parties for each other.
