Happy Birthday, Im Yoona!

To SONEs, with nine significant birthdays every year, you would think that birthday tributes become repetitive and boring as the time goes by. However, when you think more about it, with time, everyone grows and things changes; same applies to us and especially the girls.

Growth is evident in the birthday girl Yoona in the past year, be it in acting, singing and more. Yoona became an all-rounded celebrity as we saw her playing the lead role in drama ‘Love Rain’ opposite Jang Geunseuk, singing and showing off her vocals more in Girls’ Generation’s songs, modelling in magazines and photo shoots, as well as hosting several major events in the past year.

Yoona tried her hand in acting since 2007 with ’9 Ends, 2 Outs’ to ‘Woman of Matchless Beauty’ in 2008 before landing her first leading role in ‘You Are My Destiny’ also in the same year and ‘Cinderella Man’ in 2009. Two years later, it was obvious to everyone that her acting matured with her double roles in ‘Love Rain’ with Kim Yoonhee in the 1970s and her daughter Jung Hana in modern days. The ups and downs in the lives and romance of the two women in different ages touched many to tears as Yoona lived out her passion as an actress.

Although she is the second youngest member of Girls’ Generation, Yoona has a mature side to her along with her fun-loving and bright personality. Throughout the years, Yoona had to deal with comments and criticisms for things she did and did not do, just because she was the face and image of Girls’ Generation. She did not falter despite all that and when given a choice in a recent interview, she said she would continue to play the center role in the group.

If you check out interviews of male celebrities in recent years, chances are that a significant number of them named Yoona as their ideal type; Lee Seunggi, G-Dragon, badminton player Lee Yongdae and more picked the doe-eyed beauty as their ideal types. Besides that, her well-loved beauty has clinched her numerous CFs and endorsements, such as cosmetic brand Innisfree and outdoor wear Eider with actor Lee Minho, which are earning her big bucks, making her the highest earner in Girls’ Generation.

With her popularity, looks and earnings, one would expect Yoona to have the airs of a diva but no. Girls’ Generation has always been known as a humble and modest group despite their achievements and it is no different for Yoona. At the end of filming for ‘Love Rain’, she presented gifts and messages to the staff of the drama as a sign of gratitude for their help throughout filming. It wasn’t only ‘Love Rain’ though; in her past drama, it was revealed that she hand wrote letters and cards for the staff and handed them personally, showing her humble and sincere attitude.

With an individual with a heart as pretty as her looks, it is no wonder that fans everywhere around the world are feeling the joy of the special day, even when we are physically far from the birthday girl. With that, it is hoped that Yoona will be able to spend her birthday with loved ones and that she will rest well after the long and hectic filming for ‘Love Rain’. Happy Birthday Yoona! May this day always be a special one to remember! Hope to see you back with your eight sisters soon!

YoonA’s childhood photos spotted in ‘Love Rain’

YoonA’s actual past photos made an appearance on KBS 2TV’S drama ‘Love Rain’ which was aired on May 28th.

In this episode, ahead of her eye surgery, Kim YoonHee (played by Lee MiSook) flipped through a photo album with pictures of her daughter Jung HaNa (played by YoonA) when she was still a child.

Filled with the fear of losing her eyesight, Kim YoonHee who was looking at the photos of her daughter said, “I will keep all these in my mind. I think I’ll be missing them a lot”.

Did Jang Keun Suk and Yoona Really Fall in Love?

KBS2’s Love Rain is nearing its end, and Jang Keun Suk and Yoona are now closer than ever. They’ve become so close in fact, that curious eyes continue to wonder whether the two really are going out with each other.
A rep from Love Rain said, “Jang Keun Suk and Yoona won’t stop laughing when they’re together. I think they could be mistaken as lovers.”

Jang Keun Suk and Yoona are currently pouring all their effort into looking like lovers, filming kiss scenes and dates scenes in Hongdae.

When photos from such shoots were released, fans started wondering whether the two really weren’t dating. Their close friendship shown on set lent strength to the rumors.

The rep denied, “You can be mistaken. I think we should just think the rumors are a form of interest. I think such stories came up because of their actual friendship and their acting in the drama. On set, however, it’s not just the two that are close; Seo In Guk, Kim Si Hoo, Kim Young Gwang, everyone is close. Everyone’s such good friends and they’re all similar in age so I guess that’s why such rumors came up.”

The rep finished, “Many say that the air on set won’t be good because the viewership ratings are so low, but it’s actually pretty good. All of the actors are working hard so please send in your support.”

Yoona Can Now Take Off 'Idol Born Actress Label'

The acting of SNSD’s YoonA in KBS 2TV drama “Love Rain” finally glows.

Although YoonA has been challenging acting through a variety of dramas before, but from the the perspective of the audience, she is not completely proven, and suffered the questioning about her acting along the way.

In fact, this was because of not enough time for practicing and inappropriate choice of the dramas and the roles. At that time, YoonA starred in the dramas which did not suit herself, and for her age, starring in roles with heavy acting seemed only manageable with difficulty. But the most troubling is the label of ‘idol,’ making people think that it’s unplanned challenge of acting. Moreover, unlike general actors who start from supporting role and move up to leading role, a lot of newcomers easily get the leading role because of ‘idols,’ and therefore contributed to YoonA who is the same ‘idol born actor’ to inevitable subjects to rigorous examine by others, although she also began from supporting role.

In this context, YoonA who has been suffering from doubt on her acting returns after two years through “Love Rain”, causing many worries. Is worries become true? Looking at only the first half of “Love Rain” is not able to evaluate her acting. Because the part of 1970s is just an innocent role, it’s difficult to determine her acting strength from it.

However, bright girl Ha Na who debuts in 2012 amply proves the acting skill of YoonA. The Ha Na played by YoonA is YoonA herself. What’s saying here is not similarity between the character and YoonA herself, but acting that creates the illusion of treating the character as YoonA herself, a very natural acting.

A variety of expression acting, fluent Japanese, it can be seen that YoonA completely immersed in her role. Her voice and tone is not unfamiliar. The questioning of ‘acting that makes people’s hands and legs curled up’ completely disappeared. While wear thick clothing of several pieces stacking together, she gets rid of the bound by beauty, showing acting which letting people feels lovely without exception.

In addition, even when co-starring with Jang Geun Suk who has been acting for a long time, she is showing acting strength that compared favorably. Now she performs naturally and comfortably as if finding a fitting clothes, and also possess the ability to bring audience into the drama.

Thus, YoonA has got rid of the previous worries on her through “Love Rain”, as an actress, we can see infinite possibilities on her. Now for YoonA, shouldn’t the troublesome label of ‘idol born actress’ be cast aside?
