SNSD Yoona says, " I regret being stereotyped

Yoona has expressed her ideas about strenghts and weaknesses about her being singer and actress in Star News's latest interview with her.

"It saddens me to be seen as though there are inherent weaknesses in being singer and actress," she said.

"The fact is, I get more attention for being a singer and an actress, yet I regret being underestimated by the stereotypes surrounding it.

"I only try my hardest. If I only did acting, perhaps I would've gotten different reviews. I want to strive to be acknowledged as an actress," she said.

"So Nyeo is literally the first person pronoun which means unmarried woman humbly referring to themselves. If I don't get married, I will be active being part of SNSD," she said, smiling.

Yoona, who had received training in acting as a trainee for two years, gets positive reviews from her first major role in "You're are my destiny"

Girl Generation's Yoona- “I have never had a boyfriend before

SNSD’s Yoona revealed that she has never yet been pursued by a guy, nor has she had experience in a relationship with a guy before, a revelation that has been gaining immense popularity.

Yoona was featured on the 27th broadcast of KBS 2TV entertainment program “Sang Sang Plus”. On the show, Yoona had to answer “What is the oldest guy that has ever pursued you?” after losing a game on the segment “Popping Balloon Talk”.

Before she was able to answer ths question, the other people on the show asked her “Has anyone ever pursued you before?” and Yoona surprised everyone by answering “No”. They asked her if a celebrity has ever pursued her and she answered no to that as well.

She was then asked “So you’ve never had a boyfriend before?” and Yoona answered “Yes, I haven’t”, saying that she has never had experience in a relationship before.

In response to the question “Haven’t you ever wanted to have a boyfriend?”, Yoona answered “I thought about it but I think it would be difficult while I’m doing my work”, expressing that she wishes to put her career before a love right now.

Also, Solbi, a member on the show, said “I heard something. I heard that Andy’s ideal is Yoona. But you also said that Andy is your ideal as well,” asking about their relationship. Yoona answered her, “We’ve been on shows before and I thought that he was very impressive”, but revealing that Andy is not her ideal guy.

Lee Hyori + SNSD Yoona share stories about performing

Lee Hyori shared her stories about debuting on the broadcast on the 27th on the show “Sang Sang Plus Season 2″.

Lee Hyori, who was so happy just being able to go to the broadcast studio, said that she concentrated more on the clothes she had to wear for rehearsal, rather than the clothes that she would be wearing while performing.

Moreover, Yoona also confessed “More than just wearing comfortable clothes to the rehearsal, I also focused alot on looking nice for the rehearsal.”

The reason for this was because during the rehearsal, there are many other singers there that are watching them and moreso than during the actual performance, so they pay alot of attention to the clothes they wear to the rehearsal as well feeling alot more pressure to sing and dance well during the rehearsal.

More of Lee Hyori and Yoona’s stories will be shown during the episode of “Sang Sang Plus Season 2″ that will be aired on the 27th.

Yoona - the Singer and the Actress

Yoona is currently having her busiest schedule ever since she debuted. This is because along with the homerun hit songs “Into the New World,” “Girls’ Generation,” and “Kissing You”, she is also currently the main lead in the KBS 1TV daily drama “You Are My Destiny”

After a role in the MBC drama “9 Ends Two Outs” and a cameo on “Park Jung Geum”, she has taken the lead female role in “You Are My Destiny”, a role that is different from all others she’s done.

Especially since its predecessor “Miuna Gouna” had a high viewer rating of 40%, Yoona is currently getting only 3 hours of sleep a night as she pursues her passion for acting.

Yoona’s role as Jang Saebyuk requires her to act as a girl who regained her eye sight after a cornea transplant surgery.

“At first, it was difficult for me to understand the character of Saebyuk because she had undergone eye transplant surgery. However as I continue acting, I realized that her honest and open self, quick to tears and also to laughter, as well as her young personality matches with mine.”

In order to understand Saebyuk’s difficulties, Yoona deliberately practicing moving around at her apartment with her eyes shielded. And then to experience the emotions of suddenly regaining her sight, Yoona also practiced with one eye shielded and the other open in order to see how it must feel as Saebyuk.

Among the SNSD members, Yoona unusually has alot of female fans. Her first presents as a trainee and her first preents after debuting were all from unnie fans.

“I think I unusually have alot of unnie fans. When I heard that I have been gaining some uncle fans, I was surprised and said “Really??” (laughs)”

Recently, Yoona’s anti-fans have decreased. Although she cannot remember all of their faces, she has learned to recognize the fans who come to support her at the broadcast studio and thinks of them as kind unnie friends, grateful for their presence.

“I thank them for always welcoming and supporting us (SNSD) wherever we go. I can’t memorize all of their names, but I’m working hard to remember their faces and nicknames.”

In order to repay the fans for their efforts, Yoona says she will work hard to get to know them. She explains it as being not a large goal but a small goal, that can be attained through small steps, one at a time, that will one day have deep meaning for her.

“Right now, my goal is “You Are My Destiny” and SNSD. Through these small goals, I want to some day become a star in Asia.”

YoonA: "I Plan on Chasing Two Bunnies at the Same Time, Singing and Acting"

A member of the popular female group "So Nyuh Shi Dae," YoonA (18), has recently been casted as the main female character, Jang SaeByuk, in KBS1's Daily Drama "You Are My Destiny." Her long hair, doe-like eyes, and slim stature reminds everyone of a manga character. It's like a Cinderella's story for her as she dominated the music industry like a comet as So Nyuh Shi Dae last summer and was also casted as the main character of a daily drama, which is quite uncommon for a teen star like herself. Even though she may only be a young girl, as she and "Chun Hyang" from the Korean classic, "Chun Hyang Jun," are the same age, and seems to be weak in appearance, she's a thoughtful, bold, and serious "young adult" that's strong on the inside. You can tell from the way she speaks that she's gone through extensive and tough training for a long 5 years, nonstop, in order to acheive her dreams.

◇From an Idol Star to "National Little Sister"
YoonA shyly smiled as she mentioned how after appearing on television through "You Are My Destiny," more age groups have recognized her than before. She explained that while being active as So Nyuh Shi Dae, the fans' age group was very limited, but nowadays when she goes out, even middle-aged men and women as well as senior citizens recognize her as "the kid from the drama," and it's really encouraging. Last year, YoonA offically debuted as an actress through MBC's weekend drama, "2 Outs in the 9th Inning" and earlier this year, she left a strong impression to viewers when she cameoed in MBC's "Woman of Matchless Beauty, Park Jung Kum." Nevertheless, she said that the hardest part about playing the main character of a daily drama, which requires an arduous task of memorizing a week's worth of script, was indeed memorizing the script. "For singers, they can rest after their performance is over, but it's overwhelming for actors and actresses because they have to memorize their parts even on days when there no shoots. That's why I'm always reading and holding on to my script even on the days that I get off." Thanks to the advices and encouragements from respected veteran actors and actresses like Sah MiJah, Jang Yong, Jung AeRi, and former singer-turned actor Lee JiHoon, she feels confident.

◇Cinderella? More like a Tumbler (a Self-Righting Toy)
Though YoonA may seem like she became famous overnight, she's a "veteran" that has gone through about 150 to 200 auditions since her predebut days. She wanted to become a celebrity ever since she was a young girl, so in 2002, she passed a weekend audition for her current management company, SM Entertainment, and thus began her life as a trainee. Even though she was at an age where she was always full of curiosity and wanted to hang out with her friends, she'd always go straight to practice right after school and practice for about 4 hours each day. "Although there were a lot of times when I was exhausted, it was fun, and I liked it." Whenever she was feeling down or unmotivated for a while, she would always watch other artists' performances in order to discipline herself.

◇First Post-Debut Birthday Party
YoonA shyly said that it has only been 9 months since her debut. Even though this past May 30th was her first birthday as a celebrity, she spent the whole day on the set of "You Are My Destiny." She said "I will never forget that day because the staff and cast threw me a surprise birthday party." She received a cake at 4 in the morning from the crew members, and at 10 o'clock that night, after finishing all the shoots for the day, the staff and cast threw her a surprise party, so she got to celebrate her birthday twice. Fans even packed meals for the staff members. She gave a thumbs-up while adding that even though this is her third drama, she loves how all the cast and crew members are like a family now, thanks to family-oriented plot of the drama.

◇My Family is My Source of Energy
Her family was always very supportive of her. They've also give great advice when monitoring her ever since her trainee days. Her older sister, who is 5 years older than YoonA and just as beautiful as her, is the most supportive. YoonA is also sad that things have gotten a bit awkward with some of her friends after she debuted. "My best friends have always been the same, but other friends thought it was weird and awkward to see their friend, who was just a regular student like themselves even just a couple of days ago, on television. My 2 month break was maybe a bit too long." It is bit burdening to play the role of SaeByuk, who is in her 20's, but I thought it would look very awkward if I tried to force myself to act maturely like an adult, so instead, I pay a lot of attention to my tone when I speak or what I wear Regarding her popularity that she quickly gained just shortly after debuting, YoonA responded maturely by saying "if you always try hard, people around you will notice it. I feel like I was given this chance because I've always tried my hardest." About how she got casted for the main character of a daily drama, she said "though as a rookie, I'm in no position to choose what drama I want to shoot, I auditioned for 'You Are My Destiny' because I thought I could learn a lot about life and acting from it. It is less burdening for me now, since there are a lot more veteran actors that I can learn from. And because we're all shooting the drama over a long period of time, the atmosphere is very relaxed."

◇I Plan on Chasing Two Bunnies at the Same Time, Singing and Acting
I'm always texting or calling my fellow So Nyuh Shi Dae members whenever I can. Even if I'm too busy, I can always see them sleeping when I get back to our dorm. All the members are like family to me now, and SooYoung and YuRi, who I took acting lessons with, help me out with reading lines. Though she is currently a 12th grader that should be preparing for the "Soo Neung Test" (the college admissions test) she'll be busy promoting So Nyuh Shi Dae's second album, which will be released this summer, and wrapping up "You Are My Destiny" in order to thank all the fans for their love and support. At first, it was hard for YoonA to understand the feelings and unfortunate circumstances of the blind and orphaned SaeByuk. However, after a lot of effort to think and act like and also be SaeByuk, she recently felt like she became SaeByuk, as she was accused of being a thief at a sauna, then was kicked out, and as a result cried in a public phonebooth.

YoonA says that her goal is to become an actress like Jun DoYun that can act out any type of persona naturally and comfortably. She also stated that she wishes to work with Lee SunKyoon from "White Tower" and "The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince"; she shyly smiled as she added that she liked his charming voice and acting. YoonA said that if she had to pick out a flaw of herself, she would say that her hands and feet are unattractive, and she's a bit close-minded as well as sometimes having a lot of thoughts on her mind. YoonA brightly laughed as she said "you can expect me be an active and hard-working singer and actress just like SaeByuk was in order to become a brighter and more confident person."
