On December 26th, Girls' Generation made a special appearance on SBS's "Midnight TV Entertainment", a show hosted by Sooyoung and YB's Yoon Dohyun. In their short but very funny segment, the members of Girls' Generation were told their fortunes by Sooyoung, who revealed what Jessica, Tiffany, and Yuri could expect next year.
Sooyoung began by asking which of the members were born in the year of the Snake, which fell on 1989, and said, "The fortune for the snake zodiac in 2013 is in my hand." Taeyeon, Jessica, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, and Yuri, all born in 1989, raised their hands.
Sooyoung then revealed Tiffany's fortune, saying that Tiffany would be offered a representative position in business. However, she continued, "Rather than starting something new, it would be better to wait it out a little longer."
Jessica was told, "You will have luck in dating. Your partner could be overseas." Sooyoung also added, "Is it by any chance, Daniel Henney?" Jessica quickly responded, "Yes~."
Finally, Sooyoung revealed to Yuri, "You will have good energy, and energy for a drama is especially great. There is a high possibility of you playing the main role."

Psy's catchy song "Gangnam Style" has been named among Collins Dictionary's words of 2012.
According to the Collins Dictionary homepage, "Gangnam Style" was picked up as candidate for new words, along with "Eurogeddon", which refers to the financial crisis of the Euro zone, and "fiscal cliff", which is a hot issue in American politics and refers to a sharp decrease in government spending and an increase in taxes that could throw the economy back into recession. The new words will be added to the online dictionary in its next site update.
The 12 new words came from among almost 7,400 new word submissions from the general public, after Collins opened its online dictionary up to suggestions in recognition of "how language is constantly evolving through pop culture, events and trends".
Collins selected one popular word to represent each month from the whole range of those submitted. "Gangnam Style" was picked up in November.
Collins stated that PSY's "Gangnam Style" became the most viewed video on YouTube in November with over a billion views. It has since spawned many spoofs in countries across the globe.
Collins classified the 12 new words into two groups. The first is "candidates", which will be added to the online dictionary in the next site update, and the second group of words are 'under review', meaning that evidence of use is continuing to grow and be collected, while others still have been 'rejected' based on the dictionary's criteria for inclusion. "Gangnam Style" is a candidate.
