    "I Feel Lacking When It Comes To Talent"

    [​IMG]

    Yoona had a heart to heart with Lee Hyori and some guests on Hyori's Homestay 2.

    She expressed to the others how she feels she isn't exceptionally talented at anything.


    As many know Yoona is my ultimate bias. I recognize she's no great singer. No great dancer. No great actress. She is not singular in any one thing.

    Nor must she be.

    For Yoona is not 1 dimensional in that regard.

    She is not defined by her excellence in 1 single skill.

    Yoona is not that kind of idol.

    Those that love her recognize her limitations and love her for everything that she is, not everything she is not.

    I'll leave you with something I wrote regarding her a year or so ago.

    I think it applies.


    "A common criticism I hear about Yoona is that she is “overrated” and that she is “not that talented”. These critics allege she is “not a good singer” or “not a good actress” and point to these alleged shortcomings as proof of her being overrated.

    To these critics I would respond: I disagree that Yoona is overrated and feel they have fundamentally misunderstood her worth.

    If Yoona were valued solely on her vocal ability, she would perhaps be deemed merely a pleasant singer. If she were valued solely on her acting talent, she might be considered charming enough, yet maybe not particularly expansive in range. If valued solely on her attractiveness, she may not perfectly fit every person’s conception of beauty. If Yoona were valued on these attributes in isolation, then yes, maybe one could say she is “nothing special” or “overrated”.

    However, Yoona is unique in that she is the whole package. Her admirers do not love her based solely on one single attribute. They love her for the combination of virtues she exhibits.

    Yoona is intelligent, hardworking and talented. She has a fun-loving, warm personality and possesses an intoxicating charm. She is kind and empathetic, respectful and humble. She exhibits an enticing vulnerability and gentle femininity. She is graceful and poised, elegant and beautiful. She is all of these things and more, and that is why she is so greatly admired, and deservedly so.

    Yoona is beloved by the world because she represents an aspirational feminine ideal. Her male admirers see the kind of woman they dream of marrying. Her female admirers see the kind of woman they might like to be.

    She is more than the sum of her parts. And judging whether or not she is overrated based on a single of her attributes or endeavors without considering the whole is an inaccurate and unfair assessment of her value, or lack thereof."



    You needn't be the greatest singer. The greatest dancer. The greatest actress.

    The greatest anything.

    All you need to be is yourself.

    We'll love you all the same.

    I agree I believe she is talented.

    I think what she is getting at is she's not recognized as "exceptional" in any one thing, such as Taeyeon being recognized for her vocals or Hyoyeon being recognized for her dancing and so on.

    Have you seen any of the show? I didn't know if it had subbed episodes yet anywhere. I want to watch it so badly.

    I had to downplay it for effect.

    Yoona is a great dancer.

    However, if she is referring to not being the best, then she is right BUT at least she's humble about it and admits that she is not the most talented.

    Other girl group members should take notes from her lol
