"Into the New World" (Hangul다시 만난 세계; RRDasi Mannan Segye) is a Korean song and the first single by South Korean girl group Girls' Generation. The single was released on August 2, 2007.

History[edit]

The song was produced by the founder and chairman of famous Korean music company S.M. Entertainment, Lee Soo-man.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The music video features a small amount of dance scenes. The video starts with a plane landing, followed by a silhouette of the girls forming a line and then dancing. During this, text appears saying “Into the New World, Or Not.. It’s Up to Your Choice.. [sic]”.[citation needed] Throughout the music video, it shows the girls doing activities, either alone or coupled with another member. The activities done by the girls are:

  • Yoona is designing clothes for a boutique.
  • Taeyeon is flying a light aircraft with Sooyoung accompanying her. In the video, the light aircraft Taeyeon flies is broken, and she attempts to repair it, with Sooyoung praying. The light aircraft is successfully repaired and both of them are happy. In the last part of this scene, Sooyoung is seen chasing Taeyeon's light aircraft.
  • Yuri is a barista, and she is seen making a latte. In one scene, she puts a pot of flowers onto a desk.
  • Hyoyeon is purchasing a pair of white training shoes at a department store, after which she dances on a stairway.
  • Sunny and Jessica are making graffiti. The graffiti says "New World 2007".
  • Tiffany is repairing a scooter (specifically, a Yamaha Fino 115) and repaints its body with pink color with flower motif and customizing its license plate. The customized license plate says "Tiffany" with the hanja version of Girls' Generation above it.
  • Seohyun is doing ballet while holding a paper plane, on the rooftop of a building.[citation needed]

There are two dance settings featured in the video. The first one is a room with a white background, and the second one is a lobby of a shopping mall.[citation needed]

Release[edit]

The song was originally first performed by the group in SBS's The Music Trend on August 5, 2007.[citation needed] "Into the New World" reached number one on Mnet's M! Countdown.[citation needed]
