I was busy hosting the show and receiving an award.

SNSDs leader Tae Yeon recently cried out with happiness for her successful career and accomplishment.

At the 1st Gaon Chart K-Pop Award, which was held at the Blue Square Card Venue on February 22, Tae Yeon proved her talent as a host and a singer.

Showing up at the event with a glamorous smile, Tae Yeon shared her excitement on an interview with Starnews.

Tae Yeon says, I hosted the Korean PD Award two years ago, but this is the first time for me to host a music award. It is really meaningful for me to host the music award of such a big scale.

Tae Yeon co-hosted the show, which lasted for three hours with musician Joo Yung Hoon, showing brilliant team work. The collaboration of a musician with expertise in music and an idol singer with greatest popularity was sensational enough to get huge attention.

Tae Yeon used to show her talent as a host while she was appearing MBC Radios Best Friend, and recently, she has taken emcee of MBCs Show Music Core. However, this was the first time for her to be cast as a host of this huge scale music award. Despite the lack of her experience, she was highly praised for having hosted the show successfully.

Tae Yeon says. Im honored to have hosted the show. I appreciate for having selected me as a host. As a singer, I hope there are more of this kinds of music event. I met senior Joo Young Hoon through this event for the first time in person. He was a really nice person and gave me a lot of useful advice.

On the other hand, Tae Yeons group SNSD won the Singer of the Year and the Oricon Special Prize. SNSD set the record of number 1 in album sales during the fourth quarter of 2011 with The Boys. The Oricon Special Prize was especially awarded by the president of Oricon Group in person.

Tae Yeon says, After we started promoting abroad, more and more people started enjoying our music. And that seemed to make it possible for us to receive the award. Id like to say thank you to the fans of SNSD all over the globe. I wish to attend this event next year again.

Lastly, she added, We have a dream that we attend a music award abroad. I hope our dream come true soon, and SNSD go over the world wide.

Meanwhile, the 1at Gaon Chart Music Award, which was co-organized by Starnews and Gaon Chart, pursued the objectivity and the fairness for the first and the utmost. The winners of various categories were selected based on the data collected from the 2011 Gaon Chart.
