A few months ago, we reported that SNSD’s Taeyeon and Seohyun would be dubbing the 3-D animation movie Superbad, otherwise known as Despicable Me in the US.
Despicable Me was a box office hit in the US, grossing over $230 million as of August 22nd. Photos of Taeyeon and Seohyun standing beside their respective animated characters, dressed in similar outfits, have become a hot topic.
SNSD’s Taeyeon has taken on the role of Margo, the oldest of the girls in the movie. Margo is a smart and spunky girl that initially isn’t too fond of Gru. However, as the story progresses, she opens her heart to Gru and begins to show understanding. Taeyeon is very much like Margo in that she is SNSD’s leader and takes care of her members, just as Margo takes care of the younger girls in the movie.
On the other hand, Seohyun has taken on the role of a girl who is rather different from herself. Seohyun is voicing the role of the shy, yet off-the-wall, Edith. Seohyun’s image transformation surprised many of the production staff.
Superbad will be released in theaters in Korea on September 16th.
