Vivian took on a variety of looks for 'International Bnt,' dressed in bright pastels, and completing the look with natural, feminine makeup. 


During the interview portion of the photo shoot, Vivian touched upon the topic of using her cousin Yuri's name to make a debut in the entertainment world. She clarified, "I was under the spotlight as Girls' Generation Yuri's cousin even before I debuted. I didn't begin this work using Yuri's fame; I've been receiving offers from a while back and at that time, I only wanted to focus on majoring in music, but around the time I was about to finish up a semester at a school overseas, I received an offer from the company I am at now, and I slowly [entered this field] because I wanted to simultaneously work on my major and work in the field that I take an interest in. Because my cousin is such a popular singer, there were talks that I 'used Yuri's name to debut' but it's not true."

Vivian also determined, "As this is just the beginning, I feel pressured to try my absolute best so that I won't be giving Yuri a bad name."

    She 100% used Yuri's name to get popular. No one would have even known who she was otherwise considering she hasn't done anything noteworthy without being attached to Yuri. However, that's the perk of having connections.  Yuri helped her because she wanted to.  It's not like she did it in an underhanded way.

    I don't think she used yuri's name to get popular, I think Yuri's name is what made her popular. People approached her because of Yuri but I don't think she was like "Oh yeah I'm Yuri from Girl's Generation's cousin you should hire me!!!"

    She herself said she didn't start working until she did things with Yuri. She said she received offers but didn't do anything because she was focused on school. So what are you even talking about? I never said anything about modeling....

    lol you're just splitting hairs here. You don't have to make announcement that you're using your connections to use them. If you get hired at a real job because of someone you know, you don't walk through the door saying "Hire me because I know xyz", you just take the job and count your blessings. People approach folks every day, the point is she didn't start working until she started doing things with Yuri. People started showing interest in her BECAUSE of her association with Yuri. She's not using her cousin in the sense that she's only around her to get something she wants. We know they are close and Yuri is the one who wanted to promote her. However, that still doesn't change the fact that she utilized (used) Yuri's name to get her own name out there.

    For what I see, Yuri really love her cousin to the extreme to take her cloths off for a photoshoot together, first time for a SNSD member doing that.

    If you're using the name someone created with their talent and hard work to get your own fame you don't deserve nor are you qualified for it

    It wont help her in the long run. You need something else to hold peoples attention for a long time.
