On December 16th, a netizen uploaded a set of profile shots of SNSD‘s Yoona titled ‘Yoona at work‘, which showcased her pure and innocent charm.
In the photos, Yoona appears to be on set, wearing a yellow barrette to hold her hair back, unveiling her naturally beautiful face.
She garnered attention for her perfect features and captured the hearts of her fans with her angelic countenance.
Netizens who saw the photos left comments such as, “What does she eat? How is she so beautiful?”, “Daebak. I gasped when I saw these“, “The word ‘pretty’ doesn’t do her justice“, “It’s just a candid, but she looks so surprisingly good“, and more.
Representing the three major agencies, Big Bang‘s T.O.P (YG Entertainment), Wonder Girls‘ Sunye (JYP Entertainment), and SNSD‘s Yoona (SM Entertainment) have volunteered to show their support for the SBS ‘Survival Audition K-POP Star‘ contestants. Viewers are already curious as to what kind of wisdom these three will share with the hopefuls. Reportedly, they showed their professionalism and sincerity by offering good pointers, and encouraging words.
Rather than informing the contestants of what to expect from judge BoA, SNSD’s Yoona drew attention for sharing her thoughts on what label mate and senior, BoA, is like behind-the-scenes. “Senior BoA has a side that’s soft and sensitive. When the SNSD girls spend time with her, she easily jokes around and makes us feel comfortable,” she said. Yoona also reminded the contestants that it is most important to be confident during any given performance.
Big Bang’s T.O.P whose face was captured in the pilot teaser stated, “Don’t try to make up extra things up as you go. CEO Yang Hyun Suk hates when you try to please someone so bad that you make others feel uncomfortable. It’s most important to show him your potential. If you do that, then you’ll have well delivered your true talent.”
J.Y. Park previously remarked that he was determined to meticulously turn each page in his book, so that he would not accidentally skip over someone, ruining their dreams forever. Sunye was deeply touched by his determination, and the singer who auditioned before J.Y. Park ten years ago offered her encouragement to the contestants with, “All of the judges including J.Y. Park are such perfectionists that they will be able to easily catch each of your talents.”
On the November 15th episode of ‘Strong Heart‘, SNSD‘s Yoona praised the INFINITE members by saying, “We are cheering for INFINITE. They’re extremely synchronized when it comes to their dance, and they work really hard“.
Fellow member Tiffany added, “When we watch them dance, it reminds us of ourselves when we first debuted“, as she smiled thinking about the past.
MC Lee Seung Gi then bluntly asked Tiffany which member had left the biggest impression on her, causing everyone to jeer at his obvious attempts to create a love line as INFINITE’s maknae Sunjong anticipated her answer. To his dismay, however, Tiffany honestly admitted with a shy smile, that is was “Hoya“.
Sungjong was quick to express his hurt feelings by stating, “Oh, maybe Hoya should’ve come out today instead…“, continuing the laughs on set.
SNSD (Girl’s Generation)’s Yoona was selected as the most attractive star who can’t just be my friend.
In the poll of ‘the most attractive star who can’t just be my friend’ carried out from September 14 to October 9, Yoona was selected as No. 1. This poll was conducted as a part of the event of the new movie Friends with Benefits, starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, opening on the 27th.
In this poll, 94% of the participants selected Yoona. Following Yoona, 2PM’s Ok Taec Yeon, 4Minute’s Hyun Ah, and B2ST’s Gi Kwang were ranked No. 2.
Netizens said, “Yoona is the best,” “Yoona deserves it,” “the gap between No. 1 and No. 2 is huge,” and so on.
