#1 She's Enthusiastic And Always Ever-Ready To Learn New Things
South Korean media has named Yoona as one of the best role models for young people because of her enthusiasm and zest. In an interview with Soompi, Yoona said that she always like to learn new things. The beautiful actress said, "I want it to be a time where I can do many things I want to do and hope that I'll have consistent energy that allows me to do so" That's awesome, girl! We will support you. Yoona recently passed her Chinese language test. Now she is also learning English and is good at it.
#2 She's Good At Cooking And Baking

During lockdown or isolation, most people spent their time binge-watching movies/dramas, reading, or lazing around at home. But Yoona spent her time cooking and baking new recipes. She shared pictures and videos of all the food that she cooked and baked on her IG @yoona_lim that are delicious to look at. Good job, girl!
#3 She's Kind And Generous
Like IU, Yoona is also kind, generous, and loves doing charities. Last February, Yoona donated 100 million won (82,000 USD) to the Community Chest of Korea. The money Yoona donated was used to purchased sanitizers and masks for health care workers. Good job, girl! This prooves that Yoona is more than just a pretty face. She is a beautiful woman with a heart of gold. Besides Asian Aphrodite, I also describes Yoona as the modern-day Grace Kelly. Plus, she is also as elegant as the Hollywood-legend-turn-royal.
#4 She's All Guys' Dream Girl
As the Asian Aphrodite and modern-day Grace Kelly, Yoona has a lot of fanboys and admirers. There are a lot of male celebrities (South Korean and international) who admired Yoona and named her as their ideal type. Beautiful, elegant, graceful, intelligent, and kind-hearted. Yoona has all the qualities to be every guys' dream girl and ideal type. She is also all-ahjumas' dream daughter-in-law.
#5 She's Estée Lauder New Babe
Yoona used to endorsed for a Korean cosmetic brand named Innisfree. She endorsed the brand for 11 years. Yoona recently ended her contract with Innisfree. After being released from Innisfree, Yoona signed a contract with an American giant cosmetic brand named Estée Lauder. Last week Estée Lauder announced Yoona as their new endorser. Estée Lauder is a prestige cosmetic brand. I believe Estée Lauder will make Yoona a global icon.
Ok, so these are the five reasons I admire Yoona. As a fan, I wish Yoona all the best in her career and future.
