Seohyun and Sooyoung became the latest cover girls to grace the ‘High Cut’ magazine with their beautiful spring and summer-themed pictorials.
Dressed in Tommy Hilfiger outfits which consisted of denim clothings as well as simple tops and shirts, Seohyun and Sooyoung showed off their subtle but sexy charms and flawless model-like figures.
In an interview conducted with the magazine, the girls were asked about various things from ‘chopstick legs’ for Sooyoung to sweet potatoes for Seohyun. For that, Sooyoung said it gave an impression of a slim and nice body but she wants to gain some weight for her legs to look more healthy and beautiful while Seohyun said that she has gotten a little tired of the sweet potatoes she once loved a lot.
Besides that, they also picked fellow SM Entertainment artistes, whom they thought would fit in best in various roles such as politicians, chefs, fashion designers, secret agents and so on. Don’t miss the interesting interview with the girls!
The girls are featured in the 101th issue of ‘High Cut’, which was released on May 2nd and is available through most major bookstores. An interactive version of the magazine is also available on the ‘High Cut’ app from Apple’s App Store, where the readers can see the pictorial as well as the video of the photo shoot.

Following the completion of Girls’ Generation’s second Japanese tour, it was announced today that the girls will be heading on a world tour soon!
The ’2013 Girls’ Generation World Tour – Girls & Peace’ will kickoff in Seoul on June 8th and 9th before heading off to other countries in Asia and around the world. The Seoul stop of the world tour will take place at the Gymnastic Stadium in Seoul Olympic Park at Bangi-dong, Songpa-gu, Seoul.
Anticipations for the world tour are high after the hugely successful second Japan Arena tour, which was completed recently and was attended by over 200,000 fans. As with their first and second tours, Girls’ Generation are expected to captivate the audience by putting up spectacular performances with their amazing stage presences and charms.
The tickets for the Seoul concert will be available for pre-order online on Gmarket starting 8pm on May 9th and ticketing wars are expected to be fierce. After all, it has been two years since their second tour in Seoul back in July 2011. Besides that, the S.M. Global Package will be available at 1pm on the same day for oversea fans at the SM C&C website.
Meanwhile, Girls’ Generation had successfully toured 7 cities in Japan with a whooping number of 20 concerts from February to April this year and it looks like they will be bringing the success to other parts of Asia and the world soon.
Today is April 18th! It’s the time of the year again, the time when we celebrate the birth of our princess who rules our Sone World, the one who was also the one who placed fifth in the list of world’s most beautiful woman in 2012, Jessica Jung.
Jessica is exactly how a typical princess should be like – she whines, she demands for things and she loves to sleep in her chamber.
When she throws something, it will always fall not far from her feet no matter how far she aimed them at, and when she draws something, it will not resemble the original object or person.
But she’s just being Jessica and that’s her charms.
And we love this imperfect little princess.
She may not be an excellent ball pitcher, and she’s not really into head banging like her friends, but she’s not lazy. Yes, she’s not. Everything you believed was a lie. They even brainwashed us into believing that she was lazy with a subliminal song ‘Lazy Girl’. Sneaky, isn’t it?
Since late last year until mid-March this year, Jessica had been giving her all for her musical ‘Legally Blonde’. It was her second time reprising the role of the beloved blonde girl that made fellow group mate Tiffany jealous. And she did an amazing job yet again.
Amidst her musical practice was the preparation for Girls’ Generation comeback, and this princess managed to juggle them both even if it meant cutting down on her sleeping time. She still fulfilled her commitment to the musical even though she had to fly back and forth to Japan for Girls’ Generation second arena tour. Even when she was tired, she stood on the stage and stayed strong until the curtain call for the sake of the waiting audience and her hardworking cast mates. It was said that she even passed out after ending of one of the plays but she came back to fulfill her schedule the night after with a brighter Elle Woods.
“I need to become emphatic on my own. I need to do it because I’m Elle Woods, and that’s why I’m able to do it.”
That was a professionalism of a true star.
There was another misconception about Jessica – that she was a cold person. Don’t let her old nickname, Ice Princess fool you. She was the one who personally asked to meet the fan in the wheelchair who came to her musical. She asked for him and met him just to say thank you and to take photos together.
“A lot has changed. People call me ‘Ice Princess’ because I look cold at first glance, but I’m not. I may be shy, but I won’t be cold towards people I know.”
Whenever Jessica was with her baby sister Krystal, not a trace of her cold image can be seen. They have a close relationship that becomes the envy of others. The way they always look after each other made you wish you have an older or younger sister like them.
“She’s a friend that I can talk to about everyday life and give advice to. I want to protect her and be able to lead her in the right direction.”
Even though Jessica won’t be in Korea to celebrate her birthday with her family and baby sister, I am sure the lovely sisters will find a way to spend time together on the special day, be it a sweet phone call, a string of loving messages or selcas!
Happy birthday to Jessica Jung!!!
You are an amazing and beautiful woman with a warm heart, a great singer, a hardworking actress, a loving sister, a fashionista and one of the best idols we’ve ever seen.
We love you, your highness!
