The reporter also talked about YoonA’ sexy exposure of her abs during the ‘Dream Concert‘ and asked, “Are you in charge of the sexy image in Girls’ Generation now?”, YoonA answered, “No. Was that even sexy?” But when YoonA was asked who has the best figure out of the three of them, she also laughed as she picked her own photo.

There’s rumors floating around the web that Girls’ Generation member Hyoyeon is in a relationship.
As many of you know, the Girls’ Generation members had a well deserved time off after the conclusion of their Japanese concert tour and the members vacationed in various countries including Taeyeon andJessica in Europe.
Last week, Hyoyeon was spotted by media outlet Apple Daily in Hong Kong walking the streets withTyler Kwon (CEO of Coridel Group and boyfriend of famous Hong Kong singer/actress Gillian Chung) and Jay Joonhyung Kim (Korean Socialite and Author). Shortly after this video was posted online, a thread stating that Hyoyeon could be potentially dating Jay Joonhyung Kim was posted on Korean portal site Bestiz.
Jay Joonhyung Kim then traveled to Thailand and coincidentally Hyoyeon also went to Thailand as well, he also took to his personal Instagram account to post a photo with friends that included Hyoyeon.
The photo is innocent enough as it is with a group of friends and when the rumors he was dating Hyoyeon popped up, Jay quickly denied it and stated that Hyoyeon was like a little sister to him.
End of Story? Well, not quite.
Earlier today, a Thai model and actress named Niranath Victoria Coates posted a photo onto her Instagram with a couple of friends that included Hyoyeon. When a user under the handle iamme989asked Niranath, “Woww is that a girl from GG?” She replied, “@iamme989 yeh she’s dating a friend of mine“.
Did Niranath let the proverbial cat out of the bag? It appears so. Although there’s no confirmation that Hyoyeon is dating Jay Joonhyung Kim, the evidence seems to head in that direction.
What do you think? Is Hyoyeon in a relationship?

In the 2013 K-League (editor’s note: South Korean football league) official guidebook, Taeyeon was voted as the ideal type of K-League. Out of 755 players who voted, 540 voted for Taeyeon as their ideal type, naming her “Miss K-League”. Kim Taehee and Kim Sarang took second and third place in the poll, respectively. The official guidebook, titled “2013 Beautiful K-League”, also included an interview with Taeyeon.
The Woman K-League Loved, Taeyeon
We asked the somewhat cheeky question of “Who is your ideal type?” to players who will be playing in the 2013 K-League Classic and K-League Challenge. While married players didn’t answer with their wives in mind, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, who received enthusiastic support from unmarried players, beat actresses Kim Taehee, Kim Sarang, as well as another girl group member, miss A’s Suzy, and became “Miss K-League”. We had to hear from Taeyeon, who received a generous amount of love from the K-Leaguers.
–Beautiful K-League: Passing prominent candidates, Kim Taehee, Suzy, and Kim Sarang, you have become the number one ideal type amongst K-League Classic and Challenge players. How do you feel?
–Taeyeon: I can’t believe it. (laugh) But I feel really good. Thank you.
–Beautiful K-League: Are you, by any chance, used to soccer players’ affections? Why do you think Beautiful K-Leaguers chose you as their ideal type? I want to hear your honest, inner thoughts.
–Taeyeon: I’m not sure. I’m really not. I’m starting to wonder what that reason is too.
–Beautiful K-League: Most of the players who chose you as their ideal type were born in the later years of the 1980′s. Looking at just those results, rather than ‘samchon (translator’s note: uncle)fans’, it seems the fan composition has changed to ‘friend fans’ or ‘dongsaeng (translator’s note: younger) fans’. Is that how it really is?
–Taeyeon: I think the type of people who like Girls’ Generation is always diverse. If we gain fans who are good at sports, I think it would be very nice.
–Beautiful K-League: In 2008, there were performances at various soccer matches, from a Korea-Japan all star match, to a Manchester United visitors match, to a Peace Queen Cup. Is there a difference between concerts and other events?
–Taeyeon: I always perform at concerts happily, but there has been a moment where I worried about the soccer field grass being damaged.
–Beautiful K-League: If you were to choose an ideal type amongst soccer players, who would it be?
–Taeyeon: When I see players sweat on the grounds, they all look hard-working and cool, so it’s hard to pick just one person.
–Beautiful K-League: Which Girls’ Generation member has the most interest in soccer?
–Taeyeon: All my members are active, so I think they all like soccer. Personally, I sometimes play Winning 11 (translator’s note: football game). (laugh) I like soccer!
–Beautiful K-League: K-League has been met with its 30th anniversary. Could you give the players and fans a line of encouragement?
–Taeyeon: I think it’s most appealing seeing you focus and sweat during each match. I will continue to look forward to great matches. And please love Girls’ Generation lots!
