Yoona sheds tears on Hyori's Homestay, giving viewers a rare glimpse of her personal worries


She started tearing up after Lee Hyori played Son Sung Jae's 'Goodbye' (Link). The singer's voice is really calming and the overall feels are melancholic. The song is so sad ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ I translated the lyrics into English.

I'm leaving 

Couldn't even say "goodbye" 

I only have the moments we've laughed together in my heart 

Let's spend all night talking about the things we couldn't finish talking about the day we meet again 

Goodbye, goodbye 

Goodbye, my love 

My love 

Goodbye, goodbye 

Now I can't even see or touch that lovable face of yours 

Goodbye now

The guests, Lee Hyori, and Yoona were sitting around in the living room and just talking. One of the guests is a vocal arts major and Lee Hyori commented that the girl must be really good at singing but the vocal arts major guest said that her sister is even better than her (her sister is also a guest at the homestay). The vocal arts major guest said that if she looks at the future realistically, now that she's close to graduating, she feels as if she's not that exceptionally great at singing compared to others - saying there's just others who are way better than she is. Lee Hyori commented that when you feel like you're not exceptionally great at things, it's really distressing - and revealed that she has thoughts like that often. 

Yoona then added that there's nothing she's exceptionally great at. Hyori said that Yoona's exceptionally pretty but Yoona said that skills wise, she feels as if she's not exceptionally great at anything. But she also brought up the fact that there are people who look up to the vocal arts major guest and compare their skills to hers, thinking they're not as exceptional as the guest. 

NOTE: If you're going to upload (this includes taking screenshots, quoting my translations) ANY of my translations anywhere else (forums, twitter, etc), please credit me. From what I've seen, there weren't any English translations for this song and it would be really nice if I got credit for my work. Please remember that I work hard on these posts and my blog, in general. Thanks~    

1. [+5224, -348] She seems to have gotten stressed over the fact that her looks were always emphasized instead of her skills. For me as well, there's a gap between the work I want to do and the work that I just have to do so that's what I'm worried about ㅠㅠ

2. [+3920, -409] Yoona unni's worries are really relatable.. ㅠㅠ When you're younger, you were able to say: "I'm good at this, I'm good at this, and I'm good at that~!", and that would make yourself proud but as time goes on, you realize: "ah.. There's nothing I specifically excel at, every thing about me is average~" and this causes you more stress.. But Yoona unni, you're exceptionally pretty ㅎㅎ that too is a skill~~~ Stay strong!!!♥

3. [+2009, -399] Our Yoona stay strong 

4. [+2765, -247] The lyrics of the song Lee Hyori played during yesterday's episode... 
I'm leaving 
Couldn't even say "goodbye" 
I only have the moments we've laughed together in my heart 
Let's spend all night talking about the things we couldn't finish talking about the day we meet again  
Goodbye, goodbye 
You can't help but cry.. 

5. [+2155, -461] She looks pretty even when she's crying 

6. [+858, -133] Only Yoona herself would know why she's sad but seeing her smile again after crying and then sweeping the snow, she's a really positive person. It must've been hard for her to maintain her immense popularity for 11 years with no scandal, she's amazing 

7. [+740, -108] When they were filming this, it wasn't that long after her friend Jonghyun passed away... the song's lyrics.. the song's content is "I'm leaving, couldn't even say "goodbye""... You can't help but cry.. ㅠㅠ 

8. [+599, -106] I cried too after listening to the song yesterday.. "I'm leaving, couldn't even say "goodbye"" Yoona must've thought about her friend who passed around the time they were filming this...
