A fancam taken before SNSD peformed ‘Etude’ on Music Core last June 27 captured Yoona lifting Tiffany’s skirt and looking so shocked at what she saw underneath. Yoona then can be seen mouthing ‘You didn’t wear it?’. She was of course referring to their ‘shorts’ that they have to wear underneath their skirts to avoid flashing the audience during their performance. Yoona obviously worried, Sooyoung who’s standing next to her grabbed Tiffany and turned her over to check if anything’s visible. After checking, Sooyoung and Yuri who’s behind Yoona assured an embarrassed Tiffany that ‘it’ won’t show.
When the video was uploaded over the internet, fans had mixed reactions over this issue. Some fans were appalled that Yoona would dare lift Tiffany’s skirt in public and on stage! They thought she was rude for doing this especially since she’s younger than Tiffany. Others though defended her, saying Yoona looked genuinely worried and that she was just being a good friend trying to prevent possible ‘accidents’ to happen. Other fans also criticized Tiffany for being ‘slutty’, not wearing the shorts on purpose, etc. Sigh. Koreans are so hard to please.
If you ask me, this seems a perfectly normal situation between these 9 girls – checking and making sure that they’re all ok and everything’s workin fine. As for Yoona flipping Tiffany’s skirt, she probably notice that something’s amiss that’s why she checked but she shouldn’t have lifted her skirt right then and there. And Tiffany should have worn the shorts if she didn’t want her panties exposed to the world. Hope they’re careful next time.
Check out the video and decide for yourself. The ‘lifting’ starts at 2:00.
