Here it goes again ;). Another survey featuring our 9 favourite ladies by the Korean version of Elle magazine.
Well, unfortunately, not all 9 this time around ;).
The June 2011 edition of Elle magazine recently featured Yoona and Taeyeon of SNSD in their ranking of top Korean idols.
[Other idols featured were Wonder Girl’s SunYe, Kara’s Goo Hara, 2NE1′s CL and Sandara Park, f(x)’s Victoria and Sulli, and T-ara’s JiYeon.]
The following criteria were used in the survey:
A- Singing & Performance; B- Appearance (Face) & Style; C- Talent & Artistic Abilities; D- Other
Here are the results as published:
Girls’ Generation: Yoona
A- Nobody can stand at the center. Even that is an ability. But let’s work on the singing.★★ -Bang Hye Jin
B- The most universal beauty. Egg-shaped face, detailed features. There are no flaws. ★★★★ -Park Hye Eun
C- Even though she just has ordinary talents and sensibility/wit, she gives sufficient satisfaction with her ‘Yoona Effect’. ★★★☆ -Jo Min Ki
D- Be careful not to get pushed/beat out within SNSD, or by rookies outside of the group! -Park Hye Eun
Girls’ Generation: Taeyeon
A- If you were to pick out all the main vocals in female idol teams, she would probably be at the top of the list. ★★★★ -Kim Bong Hyun
B- When it comes to Taeyeon, one man said, “She has the face that would make any man agree that she is pretty”. I agree. She is pretty. But her style is… ★★★ -Kwon Eun Kyung
C- Laid-back ‘MC’ image. She stands out more on the radio than on TV. ★★★ -Choi Min Woo
D- Don’t have too much faith in samchon fans. They’re already starting to shift their eyes to IU. -Kim Areum
[Personally, I think all the results from these random surveys should be taken with a big pinch of salt :D. I may be biased in my opinions on the matter, but I feel that both ladies are extremely talented in their own ways, and each has something that makes her an asset to the group individually, and, to the K-Pop industry, as a whole.]
That is the reason why the popularity of the angelic 9 is now sweeping across the world at such a phenomenal rate. SNSD is a winning formula indeed !
