Sunny will be lending her voice for the original soundtrack of MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘The Queen’s Classroom’ for a song titled ‘Second Drawer’ (두번째 서랍).
The drama, a remake from a 2005 Japanese drama ‘Queen of the Classroom’ (Joo no Kyoshitsu), stars big name actress Go Hyunjung as the cold-hearted teacher and her students.
The song ‘Second Drawer’ is the theme song of one of the main characters, a student Sim Hana portrayed by child actress Kim Hyanggi and the song will depict the feelings of her character. ‘Second Drawer’ is said to be an emotional ballad, which has lyrical melody that goes well with Sunny’s vocals and a preview of the song was heard in the first episode of the drama aired on June 12th.
‘Second Drawer’ will be released at noon on June 13th across major online music sites.
It’s May 15th and it’s a Sunny day today! In conjunction with Sunny’s 25th birthday, let’s take a look at the A to Z of the irreplaceable sunshine of Girls’ Generation!
Alcohol: Sunny’s drinking prowess is well-acclaimed by her members!
Birthday: Sunny shares the same birthday as her two older sisters!
Catch Me If You Can: Sunny played the role of Brenda twice in the Korean production of the Broadway musical; first, in the second quarter of 2012 and the second time from December 2012 to February 2013.
Dubbing: Sunny participated in dubbing (or voice-acting) for animated film ‘Koala Kid: Birth of A Hero’ with SHINee’s Taemin.
Energy pill: One of Sunny’s nicknames. Why? Just take a look at her famous aegyo!
Fashionista: While most of Girls’ Generation are fashionistas in their own rights, Sunny is the one who pulls off the best sporty-casual fashion, which is evident especially in airport photos!
Gamer: Apparently, Sunny’s an avid gamer and I’ll bet that she can probably beat the majority of us at it too!
Handsome: Sunny came top in a poll where she took the majority of being a female celebrity who is both pretty and handsome! Fellow member Yuri came in second.
Intelligent: Sunny is smart and agile when it comes to handling surprising incidents that happened out of the blue. Don’t believe me? Watch this.
Jitters: or the lack thereof. Have you seen her handling chickens, snakes and cow without fear?
Kuwait: Sunny was born in California but her family moved to Kuwait she was just an infant but due to the Cold War, her family moved to South Korea.
Lee Soonkyu: The endearing Korean name of Sunny. She once jokingly said that Soonkyu is her offstage personality/alter-ego while Sunny is the glamorous Girls’ Generation member that people see on stage.
MC: Sunny played the role of emcee for several shows including music shows ‘The M’ and ‘Music Island’ as well as major events such as the Super Joint Concert in Thailand in April 2013.
Nomination: In the 6th ‘The Musical Awards’ in 2012, Sunny was nominated for ‘Best New Actress’ for her role as Brenda in musical ‘Catch Me If You Can’.
Original Soundtracks (OSTs): Do you know that Sunny participated in several OSTs for dramas? In 2012, she sang ‘It’s Me’ with f(x)’s Luna for the ‘To The Beautiful You’ OST and previously, she has also lent her vocals to the OSTs of other dramas such as ‘Oh! My Lady’, ‘Heading to the Ground’ with Taeyeon and more.
Pyrotechnics: Even the bravest person has their weakness too! Sunny has a fear of loud noises and she still gets surprised at the sounds of pyrotechnics! Poor Sunny!
Quotable: If you look past that first impression of Sunny’s aegyo and cuteness, she is probably wiser than most of us. She said a lot of quotable things in recent times such as “It’s most rewarding when I hear that fans gained strength from watching Girls’ Generation. Girls’ Generation will put on more performances to give you strength so you can say those things for a long long time.”
Radio host: Sunny was a DJ for the radio show ‘Chunji’ until July 2008.
Slam Dunk: She once mentioned that her favourite manga is the sports-themed manga ‘Slam Dunk’. She also said that she enjoyed reading ‘One Piece’.
Talented: She is one of main vocals of the group, she dances, she acts, she models, she hosts events, tv programmes and radio shows plus she excels in variety shows. Need I say more?
Uncle: It’s a widely-known fact that SM Entertainment’s founder Lee Soo Man is Sunny’s uncle.
Variety shows: Sunny is well-known for being a variety-dol (an idol who excels and is entertaining in variety shows) and she has taken part in various variety shows such as ‘Invincible Youth’ with fellow member Yuri, ‘Invincible Youth 2’ with Hyoyeon and ‘Star Golden Bell’ in earlier days.
Witty: One of the factors of Sunny’s success in variety shows is probably her wit and humour, bringing the shows to life with laughter!
Xantrochroic: Initially, Sunny gave everyone a huge surprise when she appeared with short, blonde hair during ‘The Boys’ but I think it is safe to say that most of us fell in love with that cool and chic transformation!
Youthful: Ever since Girls’ Generation’s debut, Sunny has been given the nickname ‘fake maknae’ because she was often thought as the group’s youngest member!
Zealous: Sunny may have been the last to join the company and the group but she was by no means lacking. She had previously diligently trained for many years at another entertainment company before auditioning for SM Entertainment, nailing it and debuting as the last member of Girls’ Generation!
So, the A to Z of Sunny are just the tip of the iceberg for this lovable person that you have to get to know over time! Words and facts aren’t enough to show you how wonderful she truly is. And for now, while still on the never-ending path of getting to know her and loving her, we shall conclude this with a sincere birthday.
From all of us at Fanwonder.com, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUNNY! We love you!

The new ongoing SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘To the Beautiful You (아름다운 그대에게)’ has been receiving a lot of attention for the cute and youthful romantic comedy storyline, which boasts a cast of idols for most leads roles including f(x)’s Sulli, SHINee’s Minho and Lee Hyunwoo. The story is based on a Japanese manga series ‘For You in Full Blossom’ (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e) by Hisaya Nakajo where Minho portrays the role of Kang Taejoon, a high jump gold medalist, who meets his fan Goo Jaehee (Sulli), who disguises a boy to stay in an all-male high school.
Meanwhile, the first part of the drama’s OST was released on August 15th, a week ago, featuring a duet ‘Butterfly’ by Girls’ Generation’s Jessica and her sister f(x)’s Krystal as well as J-Min’s (제이민) ‘Stand Up (일어나)’.
On July 19th, a contestant of ‘Superstar K’, Yoon Bit Nara (also known as Esna) posted an update on her personal Twitter account, “Thanks to Yuri, I had a fun and exciting time watching the musical ‘Hairspray’. Gong HyungJin sunbaenim awesome, everyone is awesome! To all the pretty juniors, you guys are awesome too. Hairspray was AMAZING! Fun times with Yuri, Sunny & Seohyun.”
In the photo uploaded, Yuri, Seohyun, Sunny and Yoonbit Nara went backstage to look for actor Gong HyungJin and snapped a photo together with a ‘V-sign’ pose. Although the girls did not wear much make-up, their natural beauty stood out.
Netizens who saw the photo commented, “Seohyun is pretty”, “I wish to know where to get the blouse that Yuri was wearing”, etc.
Sunny will be leaving KBS 2TV’s ‘Invincible Youth Season 2′.
Through a telephone conversation, a representative of SM Entertainment told TV Report on July 6th, “The July 7th episode of ‘Invincible Youth 2′ will be the final episode that features Sunny (as one of the regular casts of the show)”.
About the possibility of a member filling the void left by Sunny on the show, the representative replied, “At the moment, there’s no such plan to do so. Hyoyeon who appears along with Sunny will still be on the program”.
In addition to that, regarding Sunny’s future activities, the representative explained, “For the time being, Sunny will only be focusing on Girls’ Generation’s activities. Her involvements on individual activities cannot be confirmed at this point of time”.
On June 19th, Sunny made an appearance on KBS 2TV’s ’1 vs 100′ to challenge for the prize money amounting to 50 million Won.
On the show, Sunny said, “It will be Girls’ Generation’s 5th anniversary soon.” MC Han SukJoon then asked, “How many more years do you think Girls’ Generation could carry out activities together?” In reply to the question, Sunny smiled and said, “As long as there is rookie mentality in us, I think we could still be together as Girls’ Generation, even after more than 10 years.”
Sunny added, “The most rewarding moments were the times when we heard that our fans gain strength from watching us. In order to hear such words for a very, very long time, we will be presenting our strength-giving performances to our fans for a very long time as well.”
Meanwhile, Sunny was eliminated in the 6th round in the game show.
T-ara’s Hyomin revealed a certification shot with Sunny. The photo was most probably taken during the filming of ‘Invincible Youth 2′.
On May 30th, through her personal Twitter account, Hyomin posted, “Today is May 30th, I’ve received my birthday present. This kid…Sseobyung’s resurrection’. Along with her tweet, Hyomin attached a photo of herself and Sunny.
Sunny and Hyomin showed their close friendship by putting their faces close to one another while having the photo taken. Sunny’s cute facial expression particularly, has been garnering a lot of attention.
Sunny and Hyomin were known for their close friendship in the first season of ‘Invincible Youth’ back in 2010 and the special bond between the two had since become the topic of interest among fans and viewers of the show.
It’s 515 again! The bright SUNNY day has arrived. 23 years ago today, a cute and talented girl named Lee SoonKyu was born. Like her stage name, she is the sunshine and the energy pill to everyone around her and because of her, everyday is a sunny day in our hearts regardless of where we are and how the weather changes.
Whether it’s calling for punches or collar grabs, no one could resist her heart-melting excessive aegyo and her brighter-than-the-sun smiles. What makes her even cuter is her shy personality in real life. Deep within the playful girl that she is, Sunny has shown great maturity and determination in everything she does. Don’t mess up with this girl though. Maknae Seohyun once warned that her Sunny unnie looks scary when she’s angry.
Although small in stature, do not underestimate this cheerful girl as things that she can do and achieve would definitely wow you big time. Through KBS 2TV ‘Invincible Youth’ particularly, her variety talent and skills are well-acknowledged. Among the G8 members who were cast in season 1, Sunny is the only member to appear in the second season of the variety program. To fans, viewers and PD alike, Sunny’s contribution and experience to the program is hugely significant.
From catching chicken and fish to MC-ing for MTV Music Island, Sunny continues to impress through something she has never done before, a musical appearance. Alternating her role as Nurse Brenda in the musical ‘Catch Me If You Can’ with CSJH The Grace’s Dana and Choi WooRi, Sunny has once again proved that nothing could stop her from being an all-rounder. Even before her musical ended on May 12th, Sunny was nominated for ‘The Best Female Newcomer Award’ at ‘The 6th Musical Award’ for her role as Brenda in ‘Catch Me If You Can’. We hope that our Aegyo Queen would take home the award as it will definitely serves as an encouragement for her to advance further in the musical field.
Like other Girls’ Generation members such as YoonA, Jessica, Yuri and Sooyoung, it would be nice to see Sunny in a drama as well. As there is nothing this girl cannot do, We are pretty sure that she will pull it off excellently. Sunny’s energy, confidence, perseverance, hardwork and level of maturity on top of her irresistible aegyo have been the source of inspiration to all, not only her fellow Soshi sisters and SONEs. Therefore, It does not come as a surprise that SoonKyu is receiving lots of love and respect from everyone she has been working with.
fanwonder.com would like to take this opportunity to wish our beloved Lee SoonKyu a happy and blessed 23rd birthday. May all your dreams and wishes come true always. Thank you for being such an inspiration and also for your unconditional love towards SONEs. We love you too.
Happy 썬탄절 everyone!
