‘Time Machine’ comes straight off of Girls’ Generation’s repackaged Japanese Album, ‘The Boys’. The first teaser showed a Japanese actor crying about the memories of a distant past and left much to be desired but also peaked our curiosity.
We reported earlier that it looked like the girls would be doing their first ‘Story MV’ (about time!) because of this little 30 second clip featuring the actor (he ain’t no future EXO member that’s for sure, aka the guy in the Japanese Genie PV). It appears our hunch may be right as the latest teaser shows the girls acting in some rather dramatic environments.
There’s already a ton of buzz on Twitter/Tumblr about this new ‘Time Machine ‘PV/MV that is definitely worth a good look over.
According to Girls’ Generation’s Japanese Facebook the MV will be released on March 13, 2012 in Japan.

Thoughts/Summary on Time Machine (Steve)
Inside the short minute and 44 second video, the girls all have their own unique scenes and obviously the theme of time is prominent. Since it’s one of my favourite SNSD songs, I decided to dive into the teaser and share some thoughts and things I noticed.
In order of appearance.
Yoona (Day) – Walking along a pathway in the snow, but it must not be cold because nobody is really wearing any laters. Again, she’s looking rather amazing in another full dress (like The Boys) but it’s interesting to note that this one looks more like a wedding gown. The concept of time is less prominent in her scene than the others.
Taeyeon (Day) – Our lovely leader is actually seen basking in the daylight (Goddess of the Sun lol). It’s hard to tell whether she’s waiting for someone or deciding whether or not to go somewhere since she isn’t leaning on the wall and has body language that suggests ‘movement’. Again no real concept of time, and the scene ends with her staring at the sky.
Sunny (Night) – She checks her watch (time not distinguishable) in the middle of one heck of a rainstorm (get into some shelter!). This element is similiar to Yoona’s in a way and may be a theme within the story. By far the thing that stands out in this scene is her outfit which is glittery and almost futuristic. Even her watch seems unique in appearance. Time Traveller?!
Tiffany (Day) – Staring at a clock that reads 3:07, it’s a very brief clip. Interesting to note that snow is falling behind her, very similar to Yoona. Tiffany looks at the sky like Taeyeon but their environments are different. (Still TaeNy fans can rejoice)
Hyoyeon (Day) – Also waiting for someone in what appears to be an alley with her hands in her pockets anxiously. Checks her watch (time cannot be distinguished). Her outfit does not look dated by any means (unlike Seohyun).
Yuri (Night) – Checks the time on her phone which reads 2:02 (horse background?). The girl is either waiting or missing someone judging by the tortured expression on her face and the phone held tightly in her hands. Surrounding her are a bunch of balloons and streamers, so clearly something worth celebrating had happened.
Jessica (Night) – Waiting in a Maybach car (baller), checking out the time. She writes something on the moisture that has built up on the car window. It’s cursive and I can’t seem to distinguish the first letter, but ys follow it.
Seohyun (Day) – Really bright, elegant setting. Note the design of the clock which suggests a different time period. It reads 4:10. Curiously, she’s looking at what is either a photo or a letter.
Sooyoung (Night) – Picks up the phone from the opening bit of the teaser. Time, 2:12 – 2:13 from the earlier part of the teaser. Possibly connected with Yuri’s scene? The time and the event seem to match up. (Yuri was holding her phone after all). (Night-Night, 2:02-2:13)
So all-in-all, I only really see aconnection with Sooyoung and Yuri (SooRi?) and the rest are just observations.
Here are some photos from the teaser below.
