Posted: 16 Mar 2012 09:00 AM PDT

Super Junior's Yesung shared a pretty picture of himself.

On the 16th, the photo above was shared by Yesung though his personal Twitter account. He tweeted the photo and wrote "i'm in Thailand now. let's enjoy our party for three days my ELFs!!" as the caption of the image.

Wonder why I wrote pretty instead of cool or handsome? It is because Yesung posed like a girl in the picture that he shared. Yesung has a ribbon in his hair that makes him prettier.

If Yesung will be a girl, for sure he is pretty.
