SNSD Tease Long-Awaited “Lion Heart” Comeback With Classic Retro Spin

After releasing the pleasant, if immediately forgettable, “Party” last month, SNSD will be releasing two music videos in the month of August.

Of course, this has been known for quite some time as the group had already teased it’s three comebacks for “Party,” “Lion Heart” and “You Think” back in late June.

From what was known beforehand, “Lion Heart” seemed like the most vaguely defined of the bunch. Thankfully, SNSD has now released some teaser images for “Lion Heart” that helps clear up what direction the comeback will take and it looks like the group is aiming straight for 1950’s Americana.

Somewhere, the ghosts of SECRET’s past is wondering who made off with their wigs and wardrobe.

Judging by the individual teasers, it seems that the group has the look nailed, even if Yoona’s hair is an unfortunately accurate homage to hairstyles that went with poodle dresses and Sunny somehow got stuck with an unnaturally orange pixie cut (the pitch black hair that she rocks for the group teaser is much better).

First blond and now this.

One day Sunny. One day you'll have the best hair in SNSD. One day.

On the flip side, Tiffany, Yuri and Hyoyeon (Hyoyeon!) came completely correct.

Yase.

Yase.

Yaaaaaaaase.

Yaaaaaaaase.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase.

And I ain’t mad at how Taeyeon, Seohyun or Sooyoung were styled either.

Impossible to be mad.

Not always a fan of blond Taeyeon, but it works so well in this shot.

Sooyoung: Amazonian, laced space goddess circa early Mad Men is something else.

I’m still not too keen on the snippet of the song that’s been released so far but these teaser images are a definite step-up from “Party’s” utterly boilerplate summer concept. “Lion Heart” is being released on the 18th and “You Think” will hit the interwebs the day after that.

    I can’t help but wonder how Jessica would have pulled off this look. I’m slayed just imagining it.

  2. I really, really didn’t like the blonde Tae at first either, but it’s grown on my fast. Glad Yoona went back to something closer to natural (judgeing by the fancams of KCON NY)

    I never thought this day would come, but I must admit – Hyoyeon looks good.
    In addition, Taeyeon… just wow! Gorgeous!

    1. Yeah, Hyoyeon’s been working it as of late.
