(A song — and an acronym — that describes what Kwon Yuri is to SONE.) S.T.A.R. Sincere. No matter who we are and what paths we walk, we all know this: it is exceedingly difficult to be genuine. And for most of us, that’s without also being under the constant scrutiny of the public eye. […]

When any SONE well-versed in the vault of classic Soshi variety shows thinks about Hyoyeon’s personal sense of style, one of the words that might just pop into your head—along with a barely suppressed giggle—is “fashion terrorist.” Coined by Sooyoung in Intimate Note in 2009, this nickname was used to highlight the loving exasperation Sooyoung and many of […]
