A Look Into Sunye’s Life: From Childhood to Now

Just in case you’ve lived under a rock the past couple months, Wonder GirlsSunye is getting married! That’s right! Today, January 26 is the big day! How about that.

So to celebrate the first idol from the current generation to get married, we compiled a little gallery from her younger days to the present. And my, I find myself tearing looking through the pictures. She’s grown up so well!

Without further ado, here is Sunye aka future Mrs. Pak.

– Born in Seoul on August 12, 1989
– Sunye’s mother passed away when she was 4 years old and she moved to Gangwon-do, Sokcho with her grandparents for about 10 years

– Grandmother needed an operation so they went back to Seoul
– First time she had regular contact with her dad

– She went on an audition program similar to today’s “Super Star K” and “K-Pop Star”
– She was accepted into JYP Entertainment and started her trainee life

– Her father worked at night. He was a runner in his 20s, but he caught tuberculosis so he had to get both of his lungs removed. He lived without lungs.
– He didn’t take care of his health, so his body deteriorated. He stopped working. That with grandmother’s illness, they had to pinch their earnings and lived with her father under one roof.

– Debuted after 6 years of training as part of Wonder Girls with “Irony”

– Debut Date: February 10, 2007

(2007) “Tell Me” caught the nation in a crazy dance craze. Everyone copied their song’s dance moves

(2008) “So Hot” – continuing the retro craze.

(2008) “Nobody” – If you haven’t heard this song, I question whether you know your K-Pop.

(2010) The girls went to the U.S. after “Nobody” and were out of the limelight for a while. They came back to Korea to promote “2 Different Tears”

– Unfortunately, it was during this promotion period when her father passed away. She was able to be by his side and see him before he passed away on June 24


(2011) “Be My Baby” – The girls learned from their previous album and came back prepared. This song was a smash hit.

 (2012) “Like This” – The girls came back more confident than before. Sunye already announced that she’s dating a special someone. ^^
