She added, “If there’s a thing that has changed the most after I starred in ‘Fashion King’, it has to be the fact that now, aunties and uncles can recognize me more than before. In restaurants or streets, they seem to be able to recognize the Yuri inside ‘Fashion King’. It’s really amazing. Now, I know the power of dramas.”
In addition, Yuri also expressed her enthusiasm in acting by saying, “In the future, it would be great if I have the opportunities to act again. I would like to continue challenging myself in acting.”

Yuri said, “A singer channels all his/her energy to make an impact for a short period of time but for acting, since one has to take a long breath and live as the character being played to produce an impact, I think it’s more difficult.” She added, “I’m having so much fun taking up this new and recent challenge.”
‘Fashion King’ is SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama and it will begin airing on March 19th.
In conjunction with Valentine’s Day, Yuri gave chocolates as gifts to the production staff of ‘Fashion King’.

It was said that Yuri went around markets and departmental stores in New York for more than 4 hours to shop for the gifts and she said, “For the sake of filming, the production staff are spending the Valentine’s Day away from their families and loved ones. I’ve prepared this gift for them with the hope that it would give them some joy.”
The staff who received the unexpected gifts said, “The Valentine’s Day in 2012 is an unforgettable one.”

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.

On November 15th, part 2 of ‘Strong Heart’s Talk Selection Contest’ was aired. Girls’ Generation’s Yoona, Tiffany, Taeyeon and Yuri appeared as guests and they showed off their talking skills once again.
As the topic shifted to blood types, Yoona talked about her losing temper at a stalker outside their dorm, revealing her hot temper as a B-type person.
After touching on the previously discussed ‘Jessica’s stalker incident’, Yoona continued, “I’ve also met the man who peeped around in front of our dorm. As I saw him going up through the staircase while I took the lift, I lost my temper immediately, shut the door of our dorm and kept staring at the direction of the staircase.”
Finally, Yoona witnessed the man peeking silently and shouted at him before signaling for the man to go to her. Yoona continued explaining, “Because I suddenly lost my temper, I asked the man if he lived here, then told him that he should not be doing that (trespassing).”
Yoona then said, “However, after knowing more, he turned out to be a very nice fan of us so I wasn’t angry anymore.”
Besides that, Yoona also told the story of her becoming ‘Torn Yoona’.
Yoona said, “We had special stages during the Japan SMTown concert a few months ago. There was a dance step where I was required to collapse onto the floor with hands stretched and stand up again. The moment I sat down, there was a weird sound. Although I felt something weird, I could not check anything. So I started dancing cautiously.”
Yoona continued, “I was afraid that photos were taken, so I went to search for them. Fortunately, no photo caught the moment. I’m worried that as I said this, people who have the photos will upload it. I sincerely hope that people will not do it.”
Funnily, after hearing Yoona’s story, Yuri confessed that she also danced cautiously as she thought the same would happen to hers, making the studio burst into laughter.
Taeyeon also confessed, “I once had my stage costume torn at the side and the clothes stuck to the body as I perspired a lot. As I covered the area with my hand and continued singing, I couldn’t bear with it and said ‘Help me!’ into the mic.”
