Seohyun, Our Sunflower: A Birthday Tribute

June 28, 2013

Have you ever felt that awe-inspiring feeling when you look at rows and rows of grand and brilliantly-bloomed sunflowers in a sunflower field overlooking the blue sky and sunshine?

The breathtaking sight stops one in his or her tracks, while taking a moment to appreciate it. And this is also how I feel about Seohyun sometimes.

As we step into June 28th once again, we are celebrating maknae Seohyun’s birthday as well as another step in her transition from a young adult to an adult, where we bear witness with proud eyes from her growth as a teenager to the well-rounded adult that she is right now.

Like the sunflowers, Seohyun brightens up the lives of all that’s around her; her family, her members, friends, fans and so on. Her eager and enthusiastic look on life serves as a motivation or encouragement for those around her. She always tries to go to class whenever she can and she is always reading to gain more knowledge. What more can be said about this ready-to-learn attitude that we can definitely take a page from?

Sunflowers are relatively big flowers with strong, thick stem, which keeps them standing strong even in the wind. That is not unlike Seohyun; her unchanging and unwavering principles in life keeps the very sensible girl focused on her life and her future. After all, how many people do you know that looks up to an influential figure like Ban Kimoon as an idol?

Having grown up and bloomed very well over the years, Seohyun is more than just beauty and grandness at first sight. Getting to know this quirky girl with an equally interesting personality was a joy and a lesson in itself. Like the heliotropic young sunflower which chases the sun, Seohyun is ambitious and yet down-to-earth. She sets a goal for herself and she makes sure she does whatever she could to achieve it, which is hugely admirable.

However, Seohyun isn’t narrow-sighted at all; she has grown to be more versatile and fun-loving over the years, thanks to the company of the eight goofy and funny members that she spends most of her time with. Also, like the sunflower of many uses, Seohyun is equipped with many talents and skills, some of which are only achievable through hard work over time.

When our precious maknae isn’t too busy studying or learning new things, she does actually have a very cute and fun side as a prankster. Which isn’t always successful but I think it’s still really cute and precious. Check out the clips below!

And so, we would like to take this opportunity to wish Seohyun a very Happy Birthday! Never lose sight of your ambitions but don’t forget to have fun. You are perfect and precious just the way you are and enjoy your birthday with your unnies and fans!

Seohyun and Sooyoung show off their alluring charms in ‘High Cut’!

May 3, 2013

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.
