Current Members

Full Name: Kim Taeyeon

  • Contagious Laughter
  • Hidden Depths: No one really knows exactly what she went through emotionally a couple of years ago. She loves colouring books, as she says they calm her, and colour therapy is actually a method of coping with depression. She pulled through nonetheless.
  • The Leader: Unfortunate responsibility as the oldest.
  • Multicolored Hair: Seems to have a thing for dyeing the tips of her hair.
    • Had blonde tips in 2011, affectionately dubbed "Pepero hair". (Pepero: Korean pocky sticks).
    • In "The Boys": brunette, pink and blonde.
    • Had a fuschia strip through her hair in Twinkle era.
    • Green tips on blonde in I Got A Boy
    • Red ends in Galaxy Supernova PV.
  • No Sense of Direction: Apparently, once her destination was directly across the street but she took a taxi. The taxi driver gave her a strange look... and made a U-turn. Ten seconds of driving, tops.
  • Older Than She Looks: Looks like a 10 year old kid sometimes. As the saying goes, Kim Taeyeon is immortal.
  • Pretty Butterflies: Her signature contains a butterfly.
  • Refusal of the Call: Expressed her desire to step down from the leader position at some point, but Sooyoung talked her into staying on.
    • Resigned to the Call: Most fans still regard her as the leader of the group, and she seems to have come to terms with this.
  • The Workaholic: She gets antsy and moody when she's not working. The amount of time she spends working on a single song is, at the very least, three or four hours. No joke, she said so herself.

Full Name: Susan Soonkyu Lee

  • Friend to all Children: Best Mom, as seen in how she took take of a child in Invincible Youth.
  • Kaleidoscope Hair: Has been brunette, blonde, red, pink, green, purple...

  • Older Than She Looks: Often mistaken for the youngest member despite being the third eldest thanks to her overly cutesy actions and petite frame.

Full Name: Stephanie Young Hwang

  • The Klutz: Made mistakes and fell a lot in their early days, so fans decided to call her DdilFany (Clumsy Fany).

  • Multicolored Hair: Rainbow candy colors on blonde for I Got A Boy.
  • A Wild Rapper Appears: Even though her vocals are heard in Younique Unit's "Maxstep" during the chorus, she doesn't get her limelight until near the end of the song. She also raps in "You Think", "The Boys" and on Taeyeon's solo song "Up&Down".
