Hoot (훗) is also considered the third best-selling album in 2010 and won the group two awards in the category of Artist of The Year.
In this comeback, SNSD had Super Junior’s Siwon star in their music video and used a retro cowgirl concept which made this comeback more unique and different. In the music video, there is a mysterious woman who was actually Sooyoung.
The lyrics of Hoot (훗) tell a story about a woman who was falling in love with someone but he didn’t know she existed. The woman started to think that the man should learn a lesson and gave him a second chance since he was a trouble in her life.
