Let’s define short.
1. Abounding in sunshine; exposed to, lighted, or warmed by the direct rays of the sun
You know who gets strength from the sun? Superman.
And you know who the sun gets strength from? Sunny. Therefore, Superman is indirectly powered by So Nyuh Shi Dae’s Lee Soon-kyu, and also a sone at heart – irregardless of whether or not he wants to be one. It’s not a choice.
With the ability to light up
a room the world, she is not much different than that fiery ball of gases 1.512×10^8 km away from our lovely planet. Whether it be her Tiffany-like eye smile, her enthusiastic attitude, or her soul-crushing aegyo, this girl is bright, and it shows in the eyes of those around her – because they’re obviously in love with the kid.
2. When the strength of an entity is inversely proportional to its size
e.g.) It is said that ants have sunny strength.
Being a member of G7, the shortest sister in Soshi has run through a variety of side jobs both on and off Invincible Youth. Having her strength showcased in variety shows and fancams, she is not only physically potent, but also has the courage of a… Sunny for a great KOmbination that comes in a tiny package with lots of punch.
Chicken, snake, cow, mudfish, and bear handler? – check.
Bungee Jumping? – check.
Kim Taeyeon’s bodyguard (i.e. one that guards Taeng’s body…) – check.
3. Aegyo Queen; an individual that is skilled in the mastery of aegyo.
Something that certainly couldn’t be left out in the definition of Sunny, is of course the title Aegyo queen. Cuter than a bunny, Sunny has the power to conquer countries and destroy worlds with a storm of.. rainbows or something. It’s like.. you want to punch her, or kick her, or beat her with a stick, but at the same time.. how can you bring yourself to attack something so cute?
Besides, you know you’d definitely lose in a fight. What good does it do when you’re just standing there in awe?
4. Park Sun Young (aka Hyomin)’s Pillow, Napkin, Pillar of Support, and Midnight Snack.
Often confused as Choi Sooyoung’s armrest.
Yes, I’m biased. Together with T-ara’s vocalist that shares the same birthday as our Deer Yoong, they are what I like to call Sun-Screen. HyoSun can be confused with HyoYeon and Sunny, while SunMin can be confused with Sunny and SungMin; two pairings which obviously cannot exist due to the reality that Sunny and Hyomin are dating behind the
As a friend, a co-farmer, and a fellow girl-group idol, Sunny is someone you’d want to have by your side whether you’re a star or just a kid living halfway around the world. Unfortunately for you, this hero is already taken. Lucky Hyomin!
5. By My Side.
Thanks to ruraldaze for the video:
Song choice was pretty tough. I was torn between English and Korean songs. You know, when you listen to a song and you think “Jackpot!”, and then when you start working on it, it doesn’t seem to really hit the spot anymore? The “oomph” factor is gone. So this would be the most difficult part; the arrangements were easy. My intention was to capture moments from 2007 and 2008 (and a little from 2009) since we’ve all seen a lot more of Sunny from recent years. And since this was pretty much a last-minute thing, I think there are lots more to improve on given more time! It was a pleasure making this video and hopefully I’ve got something lined up for Yoona’s birthday as well (fingers crossed!). Enjoy.
p.s. you might wanna tune your volume down cause I think I screwed up with the volume adjustment. See what works for you 🙂
Happy 23rd Birthday to Lee Soon-Kyu!
Wow! Happy birthday Sunny noona! One year older,one more ray of sunshine added to your aegyo-ness!
Even though i’m a little sick because of stress right now,but i feel the warmth of sunshine outside my house and inside my heart bcause of your b’day!!

Happy 22nd bday, Lee Sunny noona ^^
GreeenTee, i love this post, thank U! For a crazed Sunshiner (me!) today is like Chinese New Year in Hong Kong =)
Instead of taking a wall of text to profess my tremendous and undying love Sunny, I’ve decided to do something a bit more fun and crafted this rap in her honor. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUNNY…this is for U! ❤
They call me Sunny, the All-Kill…Energy Pill
on stage and variety shows, I’m “berri gud, yo”
Aegyo Queen with my own Folding Screen
Five/Fifteen is my birthday, but every day Sunny Day
I may be short but Sunshiners know that I’m strong
if insoles don’t help me stand out, I have my own songs
Sone Sone Sone…I Love you, I Need you
and Finally Now…I even have my own cow!
and take care of babies like a nanny
now SKE is saying I’m a granny??
Oh!…i don’t give a Hoot
I’m a shoot shoot shooting star, shining star
Hit you hard!
with CCP that causes nose bleeds

Soshi so hot we make the Devil run
SNSD…Super N Sexy Delicious!
they call me Sunny Bunny
you can tell me all your wishes 😉
ps- Ruraldaze, excellent job on the video!!
When I first started getting into SNSD, Sunny was the first one to catch my attention, and my first bias. She will always be a cute little ball of aegyo to me! She has a killer smile, beautiful eyes, kissable lips, and a strong heart that is brave. She will always be able to touch our hearts with her charm! Happy birthday Sunny!
oh Sunny Bunny!!!! how to describe my joy and love for you!!! hmm…. let’s start with the beginning….
I was watching the mv for Oh! and when I first saw Sunny I was like, “Aw! she’s so cute!” I didn’t know her name, her age, or how cute (and adorably annoying XD) she was, but I instantly fell in love with her and she became my number one favorite girl in SNSD. I’ve listened to her sweet aegyo so much I have automatically started aegyoing (is that a word? XD) my voice like hers. some people think it’s cute, while others want to punch me in the face, kinda like Sunny!! anyway, happy birthday to my numbe one most favorite member of SNSD, Sunny Bunny. ^^ ❤ Sunny Fighting!!!

Keep your aegyo and keep “sunkyu” hehehe…
Saengil chukahamnida Sunny♥
Happy birthday Sunny Bunny! It’s okay that you won’t grow anymore, you’re not short. You’re fun size! hahaha happy brithday!
Great post that illustrates all of Sunny’s awesome powers and why she is like the pillar of support of this girl group. SNSD could never be the same without Sunny exerting her very small yet powerful presence through her aegyo, her care for the 8 sisters and her love for the fans – energizer bunny in every sense of the word. Happy birthday to the eternally sunshining Soonkyo of SNSD.
P.S. – Greeetee: thanks for the wonderful bday post as expected from you. ruraldaze: Thanks for making that awesome video, I really enjoyed watching it. SunnyBunnySoFunny: I really like your rap, it’s really summarizes everything great about Sunny.
happy birthday to Sunny unni saranghaeyo

Happy birthday Soonkyu! ^_^ I hope this year will be a good year, and i hope next year will be better! 😀
Stay well and be healthy aegyo queen! ❤
Happy birthday Sunny! May God bless you more in this new year of your life 🙂
What’s with the abnormally large “Read more” sign? Oh wait, it’s meant to emphasize how ‘large’ and ‘powerful’ Sunny is. Despite her relatively short physical stature, she compensates for it with an endearing character and irresistible Aegyo.
Beautifully written! I love reading the birthday posts, you guys really know how to sum it all up (character, personality, role, etc) for our ladies, always a fun and touching read
And also a beautiful video by ruraldaze! I really enjoyed watching that as well, and the song choice? perfect fit.
Berri good yo! haha
Happy birthday to Lee Soonkyu noona!!!! Sunny noona’s 23rd! I hope it is the best and brightest of them all! May you make many special memories and I hope that nothing but joy and success come your way!
Happy birthday Sunny!!!!!!!!!!!
