How to Stream Girls' Generation 4th Mini Album "Mr.Mr." on Melon

Hey guys, if you can't afford to buy SNSD's songs, you can at least listen to a 1 minute preview via Melon. It is rumoured that this will help count to the music charts (although you should still buy the album if you can from legit sources, that is the only guaranteed charting method). Read on for a guide on how to do this.

This guide is adapted from the f(x) guide for streaming RPPP, with an update on Melon's latest form formats.

1) Go to Melon's website. Click 회원가입 (See pink box) to register a Melon account.

2) Check this box to agree to all terms & conditions.

3) Click to proceed.

4) Fill in the form accordingly. You must click to verify that the email/ID etc are available, or the form won't submit successfully. WARNING: Some email domains (like hotmail) are not permitted. Gmail is safe.

5) Authenticate your email.

6) Wait to receive the email that your account is successfully created, then go to the Mr.Mr. album here.

7) Select all the songs, then click the button with the headphones to download the Melon Player.

8) Click the green button to download. Once downloaded and installed, you should be able to listen to the song previews. Enjoy!

Light You Up: allonsooyoung 1st Photobook

Choi Sooyoung has legs so slim and so long they seem to stretch out to infinity and beyond. She is the epitome of the ideal female body: Tall, slim, and with a metabolism so monstrously active she can eat more than most men and still have a body that is the envy of 99% of the species. Ordinarily, I would say she's a defect to our evolutionary pathways. Someone like her is too high maintenance and too inefficient in the survival of the fittest. But we're living in advanced civilisation now, and the fact that she is one of the Divine Nine gives her a free pass of sorts.

Anyway, I have a strange feeling that allonsooyoung had been careless. I'm not entirely sure all the fangoods promised are there, but I can't pick through this bit by bit. I don't do inventory checks at the minute level because I simply don't have the time. Plus, I don't care about free gifts (unless it's something I need, like a bookmark or a life-sized Taeyeon poster). The important stuff I'll account for it, but otherwise I don't give a damn.

This photobook has four sections. The first three are on her public and airport life. I highlighted pictures from these sections in the gallery linked below. The last section I've chosen to omit, for it covers her personal, private life. The private photos from this fourth section had been obtained and distributed with permission from Sooyoung's family, for I've heard that the fansite master for allonsooyoung (formerly it'S You) is a family friend of Sooyoung. Isn't that awesome? How many people can claim to be personally related to Soshi? Anyway, I think it is better not to allow those personal pictures to run rampant on the Internet, permitted as they are.
