Thank you for the translations! I've been contemplating on whether or not I should buy the book when I can barely read Japanese but it seems like such a great book to have as a fan. Now that you're translating, I definitely have more incentive to make the purchase, haha.

Thank you for your hard work!

POPULAR

Whee~ Glad to see you guys enjoying the book so far. I'll do my best to keep going. Onto chapter 2, which is all about the girls themselves. I'll be posting up each girl a week, so keep looking to see if your favorite member has been posted or not.

Small disclaimer: Anything written is from the view point of the author, which in this case is the SNSD reasearch committee, so if they got any info wrong or mistaken, it is probably because of the info they found when they wrote the book.

With that onto the first member: Yoona!


Chapter 2

Getting to Know Them More: The 9 Member’s Cute Secrets

Yoona

A prank-loving, cute, and naturally beautiful girl

Profile
Name: Im Yoona
Birthdate: May 30th, 1990
Height/Bloodtype: 166cm/B
Hobby: Watching movies
Education: Dongguk University, Theatre Major
Specialty: Acting, Dance
Strong point: Calming the environment, natural and bright
Weak point: Uncomfortable around strangers

Number one among males?! Yoona fans rapidly increasing even among celebrities!

Even among the top females, Yoona, who starred in a record breaking 41.5% viewer rating KBS big hit drama, “You Are My Destiny” in 2008, was awarded Best New Artist and Netizen Award at KBS Baeksang Arts Awards and her name recognition soared. Even on stage and being in the center singing, her high popularity can also be said to be natural. There are many popular members in Girls’ Generation, but it is be possible that the most popular in group could be Yoona.

And speaking of her popularity, it is not only among the normal male fans that like her, but it extends to Korean male talents as well.

A lot of males, such as singer Lee Seung Gi, Jo Kwon of idol group 2AM, badminton star athlete Lee Yong-dae, and more, have named Yoona as their ideal girl and we can imagine how this girl is the charming female.

Of course, when male celebrities hear that Yoona herself will also be appearing as a guest on the show, there is no end to the super happy male talents. Not only entertainers, but even people related to the industry as well, the circle of “Yoona-pen (Yoona fans)” is certainly expanding.

Incidentally, Yoona, who has so many people supporting her, recently announced that she did not have any particular boyfriend. Many Yoona-pens, including entertainers, were relieved.

Crying while watching KimuTaku’s drama! The reason for those tears

Yoona, who is often placed in the center in Girls’ Generation, also does activities as an actress.
The girl that has charmed so many people is captivated by a certain Japanese male. Also hugely popular in Korea and synonymous with cool, that male is SMAP’s Kimura Takuya.

Not only has Yoona watched all the dramas that Kimura Takuya has appeared in, but she’s even confessed on a variety show that he is her ideal guy! Anyways, she has fallen in love with KimuTaku’s charm. There may be people out there who might think that this means she is just a fan of KimuTaku, but her feelings towards him is not wishy washy.

When they were in Japan, Yoona, who was rooming with Yuri at the hotel, still hadn’t come back by 3am. And when she returned to the room, her tears were flowing. When Yuri, who thought this to be strange, asked, “What’s the matter?” Yoona replied, “I met Kimura Takuya.” When Yuri asked for details, Yoona saw him on a variety show, and while watching, she felt sad and couldn’t stop her tears from flowing. Moreover, she mentioned, “Since I like him so much, and because I couldn’t understand Japanese, I couldn’t understand what he was saying and felt sad.”

You can see the cuteness, her pure-heartedness, and the strength of her love towards KimuTaku and if seen from a male point of view, it definitely makes them envious.

Wanting to become a person who can take on responsibility

Since the group debuted from an amassed amount of strict lessons, every member is diligent and full of hard working people who all have the same goal.

And Yoona is always strongly aiming for the top. Her motto is becoming a person who can take on responsibility. On the bright stage where the spotlight is shining on her, that motto doesn’t seem to fit her and is quite the sober reply, but when you think about it and how it relates to her job, those words exude wonderfulness.

For Yoona, Japan was a new place to do her activities, and when answering the interviewer, she replied, “Boa-sempai and Tohoshinki-sempai were able to speak in Japanese when they debuted in Japan. But I’m still not good in Japanese, so it’s frustrating,” while biting her lips. Yoona shows a glimpse of her resolution and professionalism in doing activities in Japan from now, “I want more people to know about Girls’ Generation, so in order to have that happen, I have to learn more Japanese,” and shares her goal, “Someday, I want to appear at Tokyo Dome.”

A hidden side, the frail image is the exact opposite of Yoona

There are many fans who think that the proportions of Girls’ Generation members are the ideal figures.

Showing even more style in a stylish dance, their slim figures are so admirable that it makes males want to protect them and makes females envious and think of wanting to be just like them.

Among the owners of those polished and slender bodies, the number one girl played to have the weakest image is Yoona. However, she is actually number one in strength in Girls’ Generation.

She became known as the member with superhuman strength due to a certain TV program. On that show, she arm wrestled with a fellow male talent that appeared on the show and astonishingly won by a mile. And when the show aired on TV, that strong arm suddenly became well known among a lot of people.

And because she has so much power rivaling that of males, the original role of men carrying the heavy luggage during moving time has been assigned to Yoona. Therefore, even if you saw Yoona carrying the heavy luggage, it is not because they are bullying her, so please be calm Girl’s Generation fans.

However, even after hearing that story and looking at her slim body, one can’t help but wonder where she hides all that strength.

A secret complex of a too beautiful girl

Giving out a remarkable light on stage, Yoona continues to rise in stardom. Even though attractive, beautiful, and talented complimenting words have piled on one after another, she has to take in negative words from a lot of people. However, she is your typical girl after all. When comparing to other people, she has two small self-conscious complexes.

Those two points are “having a long neck,” and “big hands and feet.” For many people they may think that these two points are nothing big. On the contrary, there is a rising opinion among female fans that are jealous of her long neck because she has small face, but for Yoona, herself, she hates her long neck.

Also about her feet being big, she worries to the point that she seldom goes bare feet because she thinks her feet are not small and pretty.

However, it is naive for an adolescent girl to not like some parts of herself; but instead, fans who love Yoona are still increasing.

Incidentally, for the opposite complex, the part she likes and pays most attention to in regards to her appearance are those big eyes. Certainly, if one looks into those round bright eyes, it will not only be males, but females will also start to like her!

Girls’ Generation Center is actually weak at singing?

Lead dancer and vocal Yoona is often appointed to be the center of the group, but in actuality, she is weak in singing. In her profile, dance is listed under her specialty, but singing is not. There also is a lack of confidence in that area.

The phrase “weak at singing” in a way is a controversial remark. For that phrase to come about, it is not to the level where people are saying she is tone deaf, but where fans point out she “occasionally goes off key,” or her “voice is unstable.” However, many fans who like “high, cute and unique voice” support Yoona’s cute singing voice.

Incidentally, her favorite songs also include her seniors in the same company and also debuted in Japan, Tohoshinki’s “Magical Castle,” and J-pop artist, Utada Hikaru. Also, recently, she especially has interest in Exile and it seems she borrowed the Exile DVD from Sooyoung to watch.

The girl who dislikes speaking is actually a tomboy?!

There are many ways and phrases to compliment a girl and this is one of those phrases: “You are as beautiful as a flower.” If it comes to the day where a Japanese guy would say this phrase in front of a girl he likes, it is supposed to be embarrassing and he would not be able to sleep the night before. However, if it was in front of Yoona, it might come naturally for anybody to say that phrase to her.

That cute Yoona has a strong fear of strangers. Her character is completely different in front of people she does not know. Though in front of people she knows, she is often called “elementary school boy.”

The real Yoona loves pranks and is the owner of a strong, candid personality. Her mouth opens wide when laughing which is completely different from her lady-like appearance. She is a bright girl who is like a boy running around the school grounds full of energy.

By the way, other than her unique big mouth laugh, there are other various episodes regarding her mouth. Some episodes are “mouth wide open while sleeping,” “asking her what she is eating and opens her mouth wide to show you,” and “during meal times she opens her mouth wide when she’s excited.”

Even with that, the fans fall in love more and more with un-idol-like playful Yoona, an “elementary school kid” with a personality of a young boy and a fond nickname of “alligator,” thanks to her big open mouth.

thank you for translating this! i think the research team (or writers) did a pretty good job describing yoona.. well, they can't put everything in it.. and these are things they found through shows I think, seeing SangSangPlus Sunny comment and Yuri's story on Chocolate among them..

Thank you for the translation. I think you guys are taking a big undertaking, translating a book is not an easy feat. I tried doing it for my foreign language requirement when I was in school, and it was tough. Thank you guys so much, and looking forward to your work.

Hmmm...I was initially trying to respond to the 1st page's post. Then when I posted I noticed there was a new section regarding Yoona. Thank you for translating that. Love reading this kind of stuff, there is always something new to learn regarding a member. As expected, the SNSD never ceases to surprise and amaze me. They are continually growing, and I feel as fans we are lucky enough to be growing with them.

"Next week: Our giant shikshin, Sooyoung" I had to laugh at the line and can't wait to read about her. Anyway thanks very much for translating the story again, I seriously need to snatch that book before too much attention goes to it and then it will all sold out, because once it's sold out they ain't coming back. Now if I was Yoona's friend we'd have a blast laughing our @$$e$ off and pranking everybody from left to right. I'm like a kid when play time comes. I read each member facts on Soshified and my goodness some of the stuff that Yoona and Yuri do to the members got me dying. I mean Yuri scaring them with a fake rat and put fake insects in Fany's bed and on her ceiling. Oh yes those are my kinds of fun stuff to do. Yoona showing food in her mouth to her members, that's me doing that to my brothers and lil sister. Yes we'll definitely have some great laughs if we were friends. Yoona so lovable, intelligent, beautiful of course and so freaking determine to conquer any obstacle that comes her way. Precious little angel that we love very much! Kamsahamnida!! :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Another great bit from the book, thank you for the translation! Your translation is really smooth, it makes it really easy to read and follow along with what's happening. I thought it was funny that the first thing mentioned was Yoona's popularity with guys.. it seems like the every growing list of guys to call Yoona their ideal type convinced the authors of this that that aspect of her should go first. I'm surprised they didn't also mention Leeteuk though, who apparently keeps saying she should marry him later, lol. They also didn't mention her position as the second shikshin of the group, and how she consumes massive amounts of food but doesn't seem to gain any weight. They DID bring up Him Yoona though, hahaha. I always thought that the origin of that came from the episode of Girls Go To School where she was seen on camera moving all of their boxes by herself without a problem, and so the netizens dubbed her as the strong one.

It's kind of interesting that the authors would make a judgment call on the most popular member of the group. I've always believed that with SNSD, being the most popular is seasonal, and just comes and goes to the point where you can't really call one member the "most popular". During one era it might be one member, during another era it might be another. When You Are My Destiny was airing, I think Yoona was definitely very popular (especially among grandmothers watching the drama who knew her as Saebyuk more than Yoona :P) but all the way til now too...? Well, their call haha.

Her "complexes" are very interesting, it seems like no matter how much everyone might think her appearance is just perfect, she still has complaints about herself. I never noticed the barefoot thing, but now that I think about it... hm, maybe I'll go rewatch Hello Baby and see.

Ehhh, weak at singing... well, she can still outsing, outdance, and outact the huge majority of people who say that she's "weak at singing", so it's ok. Fans know the truth. When you're in a group that contains Taeyeon, Jessica, Tiffany, and really all of the girls, it's hard to be considered "strong at singing" anyways, just as it's hard to be considered "strong at acting" or "beautiful" when you're in a group with Yoona.

Ahahaha oh man, they mention her alligator laugh and contrast it to her lady-like appearance. I can't wait to see what they bring up about Taeyeon's ahjumma laughter, that's even more extreme. I especially love the "open her mouth to show you what she's eating" bit, I wonder how many guys who list her as their ideal would still like her if they knew about that. Maybe even more, cause personally, I find it kind of attractive. Thanks for the translation!

@  Emperor Ryu (10:49:01 AM)

<<<  It's almost as bad as the Iranian Revolutionary Guard trying to pass themselves as the Proud Boys in the U.S. in the vain hopes to stir more chaos in the country.  That didn't work.  In fact, it backfired on them.  Guess whose coming for the Guard?  Here comes the Proud Boys.  Good luck trying to stop them.  https://www.youtube....h?v=NIgfiSzCy1o  President Donald J. Trump is the only hope in keeping the Proud Boys away from the Guard.  They better be praying for his re-election.  ^_^  I know, the irony of it all.  But back to China, . . . it's best to await confirmations from these artists to be sure everything is clear and factual about these online posts.  When that has been established, then we can all move along to the next thing, . . . asking why.  ^_^

<<<  Checking more videos.  ^_^

@  Emperor Ryu (10:39:20 AM)

<<<  His f(x) and Cosmic Girls bias are, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  Has anyone bothered to inquire and fact check whether or not those online flyers about the Chinese Military supporting North Korea during the Korean Conflict are indeed authentic and not some fabricated propaganda to sow division in the K-Pop Industry?  We're they forced to do that online?  It's understandable about the historical point about the Chinese Military intervention during the Korean Conflict shifted the balance between the two Koreas' fight.  Nobody is disputing that fact.  The point of contention is the usage of artists in South Korea to push a narrative that China and North Korea wants to attack South Korea all over again, pushing them all back to Busan.  It's understandable for North Korea to be uncomfortable about military drills and exercises happening in the South, but China?  That doesn't make sense.  Unless China is trying to intimidate South Korea over the coronavirus and make them think not to send any lawsuits against China over the pandemic?  If true, how childish.

@  Emperor Ryu (10:25:09 AM)

<<<  Terroristic threatening is a crime in the U.S., and there's a fine line when it comes to opinions, giving feedback to businesses, suggestions, joking, throwing an insult, defamation, blackmail, and whistleblowing to report a crime or wrongdoing, all based, and even depended on what type of sense of morality and values are being applied to the circumstance.  While the U.S. enjoys the 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech, giving a very wide latitude to say a number of things without being criminal prosecuted, or imprisoned and tormented for a very long period of time, or outright executed to death for it.  That classic nursery rhyme about sticks and stones may break the bones, but words will not ever hurt thee.  So hopefully, things won't turn out to be some authoritarian child that hasn't grasped the basic fundamentals to properly deal with comments without turning to sadness and despair.  But rather sticking to the facts, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=Dj6UEQoXHSo  ^_^

@  Emperor Ryu (10:02:53 AM)

<<<  His Red Velvet bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  Finally, everything is understood and peace was achieved.  ^.^

<<<  His S.E.S bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  *Prays for Shoo and her family*

<<<  His Mamamoo bias is, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  Solar needs to watch this, . . .  https://www.youtube....h?v=Isa5c1p6aC0  ^_^  It can be difficult to trace one's blood lineage, unless there's lots of authentic documents proving the bloodline.

<<<  His Female Soloist bias are, . . . wait for it, . . . "all of them."  ^_^  I seriously hope IU doesn't try to blur the lines when it comes to free speech in South Korea.  Not to mention blurring the meaning of words and intent like a radical, uneducated SJW, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=mMtD1ZuqUZg

<<<  Hopes Amazon Prime doesn't even try to incorporate anything from game of thrones into the Lord Of The Rings streaming show, because it'll be complete hypocrisy and lunacy to do so.  If they ever do any SJW pandering too, they'll fail and anger many Lord of the Rings fans across the globe.  It's Lord Of The Rings that came first way before that hbo show (And the books for that show is still way better too.), not the other way around!  Amazon Prime has to dive deep into the realm of the Fantasy genre and understand why J. R. R. Tolkien is one of the most prominent expanding founding fathers in history.  If they deviate from everything that makes Lord Of The Rings, The Lord Of The Rings, it'll be a waste of money and time that resulted in division and scorn for what they did to it.

<<<  And if anyone is interested as to why the culture shock, someone just needs to study the history on both countries.  It's not that hard to see as to why there's any need to be overly dramatic about it.  And if any of you still cannot see it.  Here's a tiny part of it, . . . Just ask yourself who fought against the U.S., and who fought alongside the U.S.  ^_^  I could type out a huge essay on this, but I would feel like I need to get paid to do it instead.  ^.^  Tehehehehe.

<<<  That K-Pop Media is getting weird again.  *facepalm*  Why are they citing Swedish and German media criticizing K-Pop, while trying to compare it to the Olympics?  https://www.youtube....h?v=_GP5_NQ_LEs  Comparing apples to oranges.  These media groups need to realize it's South Korea and its culture, not Swedish culture, and surely not German culture!  Both of these media need to grow up, or K-Pop Fans will go Donald Trump on their sorry media asses.  ^_^  Tehehehehe.

@  Emperor Ryu (01:57:18 AM)

<<<  What if, . . . Sakura will also be part of SOL48 as its leader?  This way, not only does she keep her promise to her 48fans back in Japan, but also keeps her K-Pop career going too.  It's not unheard of for a K-Pop Artists to be involved in 2 groups at the same time, but she would become the first to do so between a J-Pop girl group and a K-Pop girl group.  SOL48 and IZ*ONE.  She's not going to have that much time to game if she should accomplish this.  It's a whole lot of work and responsibilities.  Remember, this is a possible theory, not fact.  There will be no doubt about some difficult times ahead when SOL48 debuts.  To imagine the sheer might SOL48 will have with K-Pop training and discipline and morality infused into it, the girl group will surely take the top spot in the 48Group.  Or the 48Group management might take this opportunity to downplay K-Pop's industry as a whole by using SOL48 as an example of failure?  We shall see what happens.
