    Something people don’t know, is that Sunny knows basic in French.
    According to herself (in that korean site you can talk to the member and she will answer), she said she did French classes as 2nd language.
    And Jess, Sun and Tiff are Lead Vocalists. And SooYoung and Yoona Lead Dancers.

    (’cause SNSD has 2 groups: singers, dancers. who is not a main of that group is a lead.)
