SNSD Ahri: Making My Dreams Come True

Two of my favorite hobbies come together to make MEGA SNSD AHRI.

Let me just start by saying that I am an insanely devout SNSD fan. No, I don't speak Korean, and most of them don't speak English, but we have this crazy chemistry that has me waking up at ungodly hours for new album/music video releases. The GameSkinny office was even gifted with the presence of two SNSD posters above my desk.

However, as a League of Legends player, I also enjoy seeing dance references through champions. Ahri and Syndra, two of my mains, both use SNSD dances; Ahri uses Run Devil Run, and Syndra uses Hoot.

Today, League announced that a new Ahri skin, pictured in the header, will be releasing soon and is titled Popstar Ahri. But let's face it--with SNSD recently taking the YTMA despite nominees such as Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and Beiber (much to the confusion and irritation of many unhappy fandoms)--is it really a surprise to see this skin cropping up? Is it really not SNSD Ahri? Because, I mean... it is. I will be buying it immediately.

    'The Boys' is still my favorite SNSD song.
    The English version in itself isn't bad either:

    The skin reminds me of SNSD's "Tell me your wish (Genie)," which is my favorite SNSD song! RIOT really likes to play up their pop culture references, as they've put some Haruhi Suzumiya and AKB48 references in the dances as well.

    *EDIT: I just watched the teaser...yep, that's definitely a "Genie Ahri!" I know that dance anywhere!

    Yup! There was a fan-made skin not too long ago of her in the same general outfit they used in Genie:

    There were a few two many acronyms for me to really get the gist, but yay! New League skins!

    Fun read. I have no context for any of it. But I understand it a little better.

    I'm actually really fond of playing Syndra as my main AP champion.
