    biggri [DISC]The reason why "The Boys" is the title

    Fans' Interpretation of SNSD's Concept Photos from their 3rd Album 'The Boys'

    SNOW WHITE - TAEYEON(태연)


    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    In the fairy tale, Snow White falls into deep slumber/stupor after taking a bite out of the poisoned apple offered by her disguised evil
    stepmother, The Queen. The spell was broken only after Snow White was rescued by the Prince.

    However, in Taeyeon's concept photo, if you look closely, she has taken a bite out of the apple and yet, she is still standing firm in the photo, i.e. not affected by the poisonous apple.

    SWAN PRINCESS - JESSICA (시카)
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    In the fairy tale, the Swan Princess were protected by doves. But in Jessica's concept photo, she was releasing the dove into freedom with her own hands.

    LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD - SUNNY(써니)
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    Sporting a stark difference with the innocent and naive Little Red Riding Hood that we know, Sunny looked witty and smart in her concept photo, as though she will never be bluffed or taken in by any big bad wolves.

    THE LITTLE MERMAID - TIFFANY(파니)
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    In order to meet her Prince, the little mermaid gave up her beautiful voice in exchange of a pair of legs with the "help" of the sea witch.

    In Tiffany's photo, we can see that not only does she have a pair of beautiful legs, she was also holding on to her dreams of performing on stage, as represented by the numerous glitter balls.

    THUMBELINA - HYOYEON(효연)
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    In the fairy tale, Thumbelina, as her name implies, is a tiny girl, the size of a thumb. She emerged from a flower of a barleycorn, which was given by a beggar woman to a peasant's wife in exchange for food.

    However, in Hyoyeon's photo, we can see that she adorned many beautiful flowers on her head. Does this mean that she overcame her size and everything else that came with it?

    THE RED SHOES - YURI(유리)
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    The Red Shoes is one of the darker fairy tales in the list. In the story, the vain little girl was obsessed with the new red shoes, which she tricked her adoptive mother into buying. She pays no attention to service in church and attends a party in her new shoes, desserting her sick mother. She was then cursed to dance all the time without stopping, until she amputated her legs.

    In Yuri's photo, we can see that she managed to take off her red shoes and yet still possesses a pair of beautiful legs. And what are those red specks on the ground? ^^

    RAPUNZEL - SOOYOUNG(수영)
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Rapunzel was locked and trapped in a tower with no doors and stairs by the Enchantress. When the Prince chanced upon her in the woods by following her beautiful voice, she had to let down her long hair to let him climb up the tower before they can meet.

    However, in the photo, it is obvious that Rapunzel's (Sooyoung) symbolic long hair has been cut short (imagine Rapunzel's hair from the top to the bottom of the tower).

    BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - YOONA(윤아)

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    In contrast with the Belle in the story, Yoona boasted a strong, charismatic aura in her photo while yielding a sword. Perhaps this signifies that she is not a weak girl and no longer require saving and protection by the Beast.

    SNOW QUEEN - SEOHYUN(서현)

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    A passage from the Bible was used at the end of the fairy tale: "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven."

    This perhaps carries a hidden meaning where the public hopes that SNSD will always remain as "SoNyuhs". With Seohyun's appearance and a cold expression in the photo, maybe she was trying to break the "spell" casted by the Snow Queen.

    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

    Basically, it appears as though every members were portraying different roles in various fairy tales. It also happens that most of the photos captured the essence/changing points of the fairy tales, such as Taeyeon's apple, Yuri's shoes, Jessica's dove, Sooyoung's hair, etc.

    Put together with the title of the main song 'The Boys', one can perhaps envision the concept/main theme of the third album to be:

    While keeping and maintaining the qualities and images of the female heroines in fairy tales, the girls are also trying to walk out of the boundaries of such tales to become truly modern and independent women.
