Yena Is A Quadruple Threat
To many K-Pop fanatics, Yena is considered to be a Triple Threat, which is a great dancer, singer, and actress, all rolled up into one. She is a "performer" in the truest sense of the word. Everytime she's up on stage, it's like watching a story unfold before our eyes, and it's flawless. Yena has mastered what it takes to be a superstar.
However, in our minds, Yena is more than a Triple Threat... she is a Quadruple Threat.
What is a Quadruple Threat you ask? That is someone who can dance, sing, act, and... is a virtuoso at eating giant sandwiches. Watching Yena munch away, bite after bite, it truly made her a legend in the world of Sandwich Rock. She's everything we look for in a K-Pop idol, she has it all.
All joking aside, we really think that Yena is amazing and look forward to more incredible music from her. And now, as an added bonus, here are three of our favorite Yena songs.
WithOrWithOut by Yena (최예나)
Is it only me, or is there a bit of a 2NE1 vibe going on? This definitely has a Generation 2.5 flavor and style to it... and that's pretty cool.
Make U Smile by Yena (최예나)
For some reason, this tune doesn't fare well when Yena sings it live. So, here is the original audio version. On a side note, sometimes we hear a small voice singing, "When you wish upon a star..." and "Somewhere over the rainbow..." in our heads.
SMILEY by Yena (최예나)
What else can you say? This song has everything a gamer and anime lover could hope for. Generation 4 is in full swing and we're just along for the ride.
We hope you enjoyed our list of Top 10 Yena Songs, and hope you can come back and enjoy more entertaining Sandwich Rock articles in the future!
