Yubin Goes Blonde and Gangster
Wonder Girls member Yubin transformed into her own version of Léon’s Mathilda.
For the December issue of Singles, Yubin mixed things up and strayed from the usual girl group-designated poses, choosing instead go gangster, with a short and sassy blonde hairdo in the cut and style of Léon’s Mathilda (Natalie Portman).
An official from Singles said, “The concept was Yubin’s own idea. Yubin was lauded by the staff because she kept coming up with bright new ideas.”
A photo of her posing on a bed in a slightly revealing one piece dress with 30cm killer heels was certainly the most impressive. In the interview, Yubin spoke of what happened while she was working on her group’s new album, and what how she felt while she was in America.
On how many people recognize her when she walks the streets in America, she answered, “Because the image of us onstage is so strong, people just think we’re five Asian girls walking on the street when we’re in our everyday styles,” and made the staff laugh.
When she was asked whether she didn’t feel sad because she has short rap parts, she answered, “I don’t think I should be sorry about it. I’m the rapper, but I think that I shouldn’t try to force a rap into a song that doesn’t sound good with a rap in it. The quality of the song is more important than the number of parts I have.”
