Lee Yoon Ji (better known by her stage name Yena) is a South Korean idol singer and dancer. She is best known for being a vocalist in rookie group Playback.
As is the case with most rookie groups, there isn’t that much material to go off of when writing up these sorts of profiles. However, after having gotten multiple requests for Playback-related posts from people with good tastes (that’s people reading this blog), here’s the first of what will assuredly be many posts on Playback and its members.
Based on this sort-of-self-interview/introduction video, Yena is known as the mother of the group thanks to her “gracefulness” (and the fact that she’s the oldest member of Playback). Adding to that persona, Yena is also apparently the group’s go-to person for questions and she looks after her three group mates when it comes to stuff like cooking and cleaning.
As for her place in the group, Yena has a very strong voice which could feasibly be the star in a different group if it were not for the clear charismatic power that resonates from maknae Woo Lim. To put it in crude terms at the admittedly very young stage of Playback’s career, Yena could be seen as Playback’s Soyu to Woo Lim’s Hyorin. Still, that’s no dig at Yena at all. She is more than capable of holding her own on stage and she’s as pretty as any of the stupidly pretty faces that litter the K-Pop landscape. (Who am I kidding, Playback is gonna run through Waifu Wednesday)
Yena is so sexy that she can melt entire galaxies with a smile.
Yena is so stunning that she can freeze the tide in its tracks.
Yena’s voice is smoother than a glass plane covered in butter.
Yena is hotter than the center of the sun.
Yena’s beauty is of such mythic proportions that Greek scholars devoted whole universities studying its phenomena.
