Yoona Answers Questions About Acting in ‘Love Rain’

Girls’ Generation’s Yoona and Yuri are going head to head in dramas, and it has been revealed that they are burdened by the comparison of their acting skills.

On April 27th, Yoona met with reporters in Sangsudong where KBS 2TV’s “Love Rain” was filming. She gave her honest opinion on the citizens’ thoughts. Yoona was asked about the comparison between her and Yuri’s acting skills. She replied, “Our worries are different. It’s Yuri’s first time acting while it is time for me to strengthen my path as an actress”, and “I was surprised when I first saw Yuri acting. It was much better than my first time”.

Also, she explained the change in her acting, saying, “It’s been two years since I last acted, and during the two years, I feel like I matured a lot. While I’m reading the script, my field of vision on dramas becomes wider. If I looked at only my character before, now I think about the drama in general and then analyze my character.”

When asked about Girls’ Generation members’ reactions when they watched “Love Rain”, Yoona replied, “They all said they liked that I came out very pretty. They were especially surprised at the kiss scene.”

Sooyoung was selected as the member who monitors her the best. Yoona said, “Sooyoung unnie personally recorded my Japanese lines. I always listened to it right before I started acting, and from time to time, I was surpised because Sooyoung’s tone of voice popped out in my lines.”

Girls’ Generation’s YoonA discusses Suzy’s acting + how she feels about negative comments

Girls’ Generation member YoonA revealed her desire to take on a role in a major film.
YoonA recently attended the press conference for KBS 2TV‘s ‘Love Rain‘ held in Seoul April 27th.

I always watch the projects that feature my peers,” she said. “I heard a lot of good things about Suzy‘s acting in ‘Introduction to Architecture‘, so I saw it. The backdrop is pretty similar to ‘Love Rain’. Suzy was so perfect for her role, she fit like a glove.”

When asked “Did you receive a casting offer for ‘Introduction to Architecture’?”, she responded, “I didn’t even know about the movie until they finished filming it,” and cutely pouted for the camera.
I don’t have any experience filming a movie,” she continued. “If ever given the opportunity, I would like to play a character as pretty and innocent as Suzy’s.”

I want to try to play a “bad” character too, but I think people watching me will feel awkward,” she said with a laugh.

YoonA’s drama ‘Love Rain’ drew major interest ahead of it’s pilot episode, as it is a project by PD Yoon Suk Ho who in the past worked on hits such as ‘Autumn Story‘ and ‘Winter Sonata‘.
However, the ratings are lower than expected, drawing in an average of 5% viewer ratings despite being 10 episodes in.

My first drama ‘You’re My Destiny‘ drew in about 40% of viewer ratings,” YoonA said. “Back then, I didn’t know those ratings were high, but I realized they were pretty impressive when I filmed ‘Cinderella Man‘.

Back then when I saw negative comments, I used to laugh it off, but these days I find them very hurtful,” she added. “I think now is a time for me to develop and become stronger.”

YoonA comments on Girls’ Generation’s hectic schedule and physical health

Singer and actress YoonA of Girls’ Generation discussed the hectic schedule and outstanding physical health of the group’s members.

During an interview on April 27th for KBS 2TV‘s drama ‘Love Rain‘, YoonA commented, “It’s a killer schedule… I think that it’s a little different from the other actors. Though other actors can usually rest after filming for the drama, there’s either an endorsement shoot to go to or etc., Even when there’s no drama filming for the day, I can’t rest because I need to either practice with the other Girls’ Generation members or fulfill another thing in my schedule. I think that’s why I hear [that it must be tough].”

She went on, “Truthfully, I do get tired sometimes. But the bright side is that since there are 9 members, we can split up work. Sometimes a few of us shoot for an endorsement deal first or we share activities… Though everyone’s busy, no one has fainted yet (Laughs).”

YoonA then revealed that the girls sometimes joke around about ways to get out of their hectic lifestyle, stating, “Among the members, we’ll joke, ‘Someone please faint or something. We need to rest.’ I think everyone’s very physically strong and healthy. We all exercise a lot as well.”

Girls’ Generation members were shocked to see Yoona and Jang Geun Seuk’s kiss scene!

Yoona revealed her group members’ reactions after seeing her kiss scene with Jang Geun Suk in ‘Love Rain’.

On April 27th, during a recording of the Monday-Tuesday KBS 2TV drama ‘Love Rain’, which was held in Sangsu-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, an on-location interview was conducted with the ‘Love Rain’ cast. Yoona was asked, “What is the reaction of the Girls’ Generation members after seeing you in the drama ‘Love Rain’?”

Yoona replied, “Not long ago there was a kiss scene with Jang Geun Suk, and after seeing that, the members were all shocked saying that the kiss was too deep”. She carried on, “I was also shocked after seeing it too. It didn’t seem so bad at the time when we were filming it, but actually seeing it on screen was quite different. It was quite deep.”

She also added, “At the time of filming the kiss scene, because Jang Geun Suk’s character was a playboy, it was his responsibility to ‘lead’ the kiss. This scene would have been harder and more embarrassing for Jang Geun Suk than me. All I had to do was stand still and get kissed.”

Yoona also talked about the kiss scene between Yuri and Lee Jae Hoon on SBS’s drama ‘Fashion King’ and how it caused a fun argument at the dorm. “Yuri and I would argue whose kiss scene was ‘deeper’. But in the end, the other members would just close the argument with “both of your kiss scenes were extreme”.”

Meanwhile, in the drama ‘Love Rain’, Yoona plays the character of a modern day girl of 2012 called Jung Hana, as well as a character based in the 70s called Kim Yoon Hee.


How does Girls’ Generation’s YoonA feel about being compared to Yuri?

Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA expressed the burden she feels about having her acting compared to the skills of fellow member Yuri.

On April 27th, YoonA met with reporters at the vicinity of her shooting location for KBS 2TV‘s ‘Love Rain‘, where she candidly revealed her thoughts on the drama.

When asked how she felt about being compared to Yuri’s acting skills, YoonA answered, “Our stress factors are different. This is Yuri unnie’s first time acting, but I am at the stage where I have to solidify my path as an actress. I was very surprised after seeing Yuri’s acting because she is so much better than I was during my first project.” 

She added, “I rested from acting for two years, but I think I matured a lot during that time. Whether it’s working with the other actors or analyzing the script, my eyes for seeing the work have widened. Let’s say if I only looked at my parts in the past, now I look at the work as a whole to grasp my role.”
YoonA was then asked about the reaction she received from the other Girls’ Generation members for ‘Love Rain’. YoonA responded, “Everyone says I come out so pretty in the drama and likes it. In particular, they were all very surprised after watching the kiss scene.”

YoonA then chose Sooyoung as the member who monitors her acting the most, stating, “Sooyoung unnie personally recorded the Japanese dialogue for me. Because I would listen to the recording to practice before the scenes, there were times where I spoke in Sooyoung unnie’s tone, which left me very surprised.”

Yoona Impresses with Her Improved Acting Skills in ‘Love Rain’

Yoona has been impressing with not only her incredible good looks, but also with her portrayal of two different characters in “Love Rain”. Now a third of the way through just her third drama, Yoona’s improved acting skills have been catching the eyes of critics.
Kim Yoonhee, the 70s college student, and Jung Hana, the bright and quirky present day girl, are polar opposites. The former is calm and deliberate, the latter cute and cheerful. As Yoon Ga-ee of OSEN writes of Yoona’s acting, “She doesn’t just put her pretty visuals forth. She has been capturing the screen with rich emotions and polished expressions. Viewers’ eyes can only be kind towards this ‘actress’ Yoona.” In her scenes as Kim Yoonhee, Yoona plays her character very calmly and exhibits her feelings with subtle facial expressions and movement that draw the audience into the serene setting that director Yoon Sukho has created.

The transition to the present day allowed Yoona to showcase her skills even more with the younger character, Jung Hana. Yoona’s natural exuberance flows freely through Hana, but her ability to effectively portray a wide range of emotions has improved dramatically. Choi Inkyung of Review Star says of Yoona, “Her laughing and crying, which was only pretty before, has certainly changed. She drew tears from viewers when she cried giving up on her first love, senior Taesung (Kim Youngkwang), and made viewers laugh with her awkward and funny body movements in front of the camera.” Indeed, Yoona is able to take the audience on an emotional roller coaster through her nuanced portrayal of Hana. She makes sure that a fully developed and deep character with many sides is shown. In the latest episode, Choi Inkyung says Yoona was prettier than ever, continuing, “Of course, it could have been her pretty clothes and makeup, but more than anything, her facial expressions and ever improving acting were the biggest reasons behind it. After always having carried the ‘idol origin’ label, Yoona is completely immersed in her character and has now become ‘Hana’ herself.”

“Love Rain” is Yoona’s third drama after “You Are My Destiny” and “Cinderella Man”. Even though she is a veteran singer in Girls’ Generation, she is still considered a rookie as an actress. Yoona’s improvement has come as a bit of a surprise for critics, not because it wasn’t possible, but because she improved in her acting while at the same time performing all around the world in Girls’ Generation. She has taken the criticism from her previous acting experiences and used it to become even better, practicing hard at every opportunity. Yoon Ga-ee writes, “The speed at which her acting is improving is blinding. She has matured to the point where you want to ask, ‘When did her acting get so good?’ The criticism that trailed behind her during ‘Cinderella Man’ is now nowhere to be found.”
Yoona has met the challenge of playing two different roles in the same drama. Perhaps the most impressive part of Yoona’s acting is the fact that she is breaking free of the “idol-actor” stereotype and showing that she can be considered simply as an actress rather than as an idol who also acts. The future is bright for actress Yoona.

SNSD Tiffany - Because It's You (Love Rain OST)

Cr : Owner

Because It's You
[Lyrics Translation]

미안하단 말 하지 말아요
Don't say that you are sorry
내게 사랑은 끝이 아닌데
This isn't the end of our love to me
이렇게 우리 헤어진다면
If we part like this
어떡해요 어떡해요
What should I do, what should I do

*사랑 하나뿐이데 사랑할수 없고
I only have you as my love, but I'm not able to love
정말 하고 싶은 말 할수도 없는데
Those words that I really want to say, I'm not able to tell you
점점 멀어져가는 사랑이 지키지 못할 말들이
Words telling me that we can't keep our love from gradually breaking apart
날 울게 하네요
Make me cry

고맙다는 말 하지 말아요
Don't say that you are thankful
내 모든 사랑 주고 싶은데
I want to give you all my love
이렇게 우리 남이 된다면
If we become strangers like this
어떡해요 어떡해요
What should I do, what should I do

Repeat *

사랑해요 사랑해서
I love you, because I love you
What should I do

아픈 사랑이라도 괜찮아
It’s ok even if love is painful
지워도 지울수 없는 그대니까
Because you are the one I can never forget
슬픈 운명이라도 그대를 보낼수 없어
Even if you are my sorrowful destiny, I can’t let go of you
Because it’s you, the one I love

내겐 그대니까요
Because to me, you are the one
