It's unclear what could possibly be unauthorized about a pop group whose very creation and development was fodder for a weekly television program. Likewise, this recording's "souvenir" status is questionable, since it's nothing more than a rehash of the biographical and timeline information any fan of the show will already know. It does juice the hyperbole meter -- Souvenir's impossibly dull narration often refers to the girls of Eden's Crush as "pop icons." The girls themselves are bubbly and sincere in their interview segments, but their excitement only solidifies this recording's artifact status, given the group's brief arc of diffused celebrity.
