In conjunction with Girls’ Generation’s YoonA’s birthday, international fans have put up ads with their birthday wishes.
Recently, on an online community board, a post entitled “Magazine that published SONEs’ birthday messages for YoonA” was published. Captures of the Malaysian entertainment magazine were also attached along with the post.
In the pictures revealed, the birthday messages from Malaysian fan group for YoonA were published on a popular music magazine 'EPOP' in celebration of YoonA’s birthday. This activity is similar to what is being practiced in Korea where fans put up ads on newspapers for their favorite celebrities.
Particularly, as a testimony to Girls’ Generation’s reputation as one of the biggest names, not only in Korea but also the whole of Asia, Malaysian fans have managed to fill every single space on a single page of the magazine with their birthday messages for YoonA. The girls’ popularity can be truly felt and is highly admired.
Netizens who saw the post gave various reactions and commented, “Girls’ Generation’s YoonA’s popularity has gone global”, “YoonA will be really touched by this”, etc.
