We still have a lot to do as a nine-member group.”
She also revealed how she will treat summer as a ‘Ice Princess’ as she said, “I like ice cream and red-bean sherbet so much that I even eat them in winter. I guess I will be enjoying them this summer as well. I am actually scared of summer so I am afraid of how I will get over this summer. I think I will have to spend it in a cool place while eating those food.”
On the other hand, Yuri, Jessica, SooYoung and SeoHyun will be showing off their fashion sense in the July edition of ‘@star1′. It is said that Yuri, Jessica, SooYoung and SeoHyun showed off their usual fashion sense in the paparazzi concept photoshoot.
Jessica met up with her pre-debut vocal trainer, Kim JoHan once again.
During the recording of JTBC’s ‘Girls’ Generation and Dangerous Boys’ which will be aired on January 29th, Girls’ Generation carried out the outdoor classes prepared for their mentees.
For the sake of her student, Goo JiSoo who aspires to be a singer, Jessica had arranged a meeting with Kim JoHan to conduct a vocal test for JiSoo. As soon as Jessica met Kim JoHan, she gave her teacher a warm hug, showing their close friendship and expressing her pleasure to see him once again. Jessica then introduced Kim JoHan, who was also Taeyeon’s vocal trainer, to JiSoo.
In front of Kim JoHan, JiSoo performed Lee Juk’s ‘I’m So Fortunate’ and received some comments and tips from the talented singer. Judging by JiSoo’s singing ability, Kim JoHan believes that JiSoo has the potential to be a singer.
To determine JiSoo’s vocal range, a vocalization test was conducted. As the test progressed, JiSoo who could not hit the high note stopped abruptly. Jessica then encouraged JiSoo by saying, “Do not stop at this part. At first, I could not do it too but as I practiced continously, I managed to hit the high notes,” sharing her experiences like a senior to a junior artist.
In addition to that, Jessica also showed her firm singing ability and her unique charm by performing the OST of ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Part of Your World’ in the presence of JiSoo and Kim JoHan.
Besides Jessica, Sunny had also arranged a meeting with Dynamic Duo for her mentee, Kim SungHwan who wants to be a hip-hop musician. Seohyun, on the other hand, took Kim HoiHoon who has no ambition to a special place for various meaningful outdoor class activities.
Ahead of their drama debut, Yuri and Jessica are in the midst of learning and working hard to sharpen their acting skills. Recently, they have been putting their focus on receiving guidance and acting tips from a veteran acting instructor.
A representative from SM Entertainment said, “From the acting instructor, Yuri and Jessica have been receiving lessons on character analysis, vocalization, breathing, etc which is a prerequisite for a newcomer. After mastering the basics of acting, Yuri and Jessica are working very hard to meet the fans’ expectations”.
With Girls’ Generation’s promotional activities for their 3rd album ended at the end of December 2011, the members will be concentrating on their individual activities during the first half of 2012. During this period, Yuri and Jessica will be focusing on their acting stints.

Her fellow member, Jessica will be featured as Kang JongHee, who is Lee DongWook’s ex-lover in KBS 2TV’s Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Violent Romance’ which will be aired starting January 4th.
Those in the drama production team also showed their high expectation for both Yuri and Jessica. According to a representative from an outsourced production company of ‘Fashion King’, Lee KwanHee Production, during the first script reading practice, Yuri received praises for expressing her emotions well and in terms of her acting, there is nothing to worry about.
