Yuna's Interview on L'Osservatore Romano, daily newspaper of Vatican
For those who are averse to religious undertone, please skip, but then I thought it was very insightful and different interview with now retired Yuna.
It is quite long and it touches upon a lot of things.
The title is "Like caresses in the wind"
Is this translated? I don't see a translator cited and I don't recall her being this eloquent in English.
Anyway, I thought it was a lovely interview (even for the unreligious like me), I grow to like her more every time I read or hear a new interview with her.
Probably translated as it is very eloquently written as you said. But I have no idea who the interpreter was or who translated this.
However, I see versions in other languages too but they are not complete and much shorter. I can only read French fluently amongst these languages to speak with certainty.
They probably have a lot of highly qualified scholars/priests/translators from all over the world in Vatican.
**Addition** The "original" Italian article: http://vaticanresources.s3.amazonaws...4_184_1308.pdf
Abstracts in different languages:
I don't see the article in German website.

Nice interview, what a thoughtful young woman. Can a Korean speaker help me, is the word Jeong she refers to = Chinese character of 忠 ?
The article only reaffirms what I already knew about Yuna. She is a caring, humble class act.

Thank you for posting the article. This is lovely.
It's great that her attitude to life is a one that instead on focusing about self, is about focusing on others.
The fact that she is a UN ambassador and is very generous with her money to help important causes (yet keeping quite quiet about it) and that her faith helps her to live life this way makes her distinct and unique.
For sure a humble, yet very classy act!
As otrique said, jeong (정) is for 情. The character you mentioned would be 충 in Korean.

i guess that's how yuna probably stayed strong mentally.. i'm not saying that those athletes who are faithful w/ their religion are stronger mentally.. but i think it contributed to her inner strength during competition..

It is nice to know she think about things like that, makes me think she is likely to be highly sentimental to those around her (pretty much all of Korea, outside Korea, fans), and likely a philosopher and a private person. This is a rare glimpse of her personality, her thoughts on her faith, I don't think she has ever divulge so much info... in English anyway.
