dancing queen, FIERCE, happy birthday, hyobaby, hyoraengi, hyoyonce, my 1st bias, you inspire me to dance, you were the 1st reason why i liked SNSD <3
Middle Child Syndrome [mid-l chahyld sin-drohm]:
1) When a middle child – typically in a family of three kids (OR nine) who are close in age – feels left out or neglected.
NOTE: Because the older sibling is the first born and typically an over-achiever, they are the most important and therefore get the most privileges. A younger sibling is the ‘baby’ of the family and gets away with more as well as being the most looked-after. Middle-child syndrome starts when the middle child is squeezed between these two and has trouble finding their ‘niche’ in the family.
But what happens when you have the eldest who’s nearly the shortest, and the youngest acting as the most mature; how could the middle child be anything LIKE a victim of Middle Child Syndrome?
It’s simple. It’s because she’s not. And this my friends is what we call: a paradox.
SNSD as the whole itself is a paradox. Here’s a short list of things they haven’t conformed to: 1) the size of a typical group 2) ONE music genre 3) just one specialized talent (whereas theirs include djing, variety shows, fluency in several languages, acting in dramas and musicals, being adept in musical instruments and farm work, etc etc.)
When we break down SNSD we have titles that can be thrown around to each member left and right: “The Leader,” “The Maknae,” “The ‘Dark’ One,” “The Actress,” so on and so forth. This is the face they wear at work, but who are they at home and how do they keep it together?
The answer to the former is that no one knows. Everyone has a right to privacy, especially our girls, and it’s important that everyone S<3ne knows that, but to answer the latter:
HyoYeon keeps the group together.
Yes, everybody contributes to the Soshi Bond in their own distinct way (Manager Hwang, the Energy Pill, the Shikshin, and even the lazy
ass Sergeant) but HyoYeon’s contribution is subtle and effective, so much that most people don’t even notice it.
HyoYeon keeps SNSD grounded and sane.
If it’s not something ridiculous like mistaking the word Golden Retriever for Whoopi Goldberg, busting out a random dance,
throwing up gang signs to accompany her silly Konglish,
then she’s at home doing the housework,
or just perfecting her craft so that no one (and yes I mean you 2-left-shoes-Hwang) in the group ever falls behind in dancing.
The birthday girl has Modest Child Syndrome. It’s as simple as that.
1) a bashful, quiet simplicity

For a more serious reflection on HyoYeon‘s role in the group I highly recommend reading:

Happy Birthday!!! Hyoyeon Noona
Zhang Xin Xin said:
She is the best when come to Dancing.
She the Queen of SNSD in dancing.
She sacrifice herself for the groups most!
Swallow all the humiliation when she told to do something she does not want.
She is like an warrior(angel) that protecting her Family and SNSD.
She might not be the best in everything, but she the best in hard-working.
Practice does not make perfect, but permanent. Her hard-work might not be appreciate, but it does not deny her improving skills be it dancing or singing.
She is just like a phoenix that always come back stronger after it fallen.
She make mistakes just like ordinary human. But what make her extraordinary is her will and determination to never give up in her belief.
Who is she?
She is no one but the Invincible Hyoyeon.
Congratulation for your 23rd Birthday. Hyoyeon Noona.
Great article. Like it! 😀
To Hyoyeon, “happy birthday to you, and just keep on fighting alongside with the other girls and I’m wishing you all the best and the brightest.”
Way To Go! Hyoyeon! 😀
Happy Birthday! Hyoyeon!
Happy Birthday Dancing Queen ! We love you!!!
Happy birthday, Kim Hyoyeon ^^ From a silly choding to a gorgeous lady in such a short amout of time, we sones couldn’t be more proud and we’ll forever support you all the way =D
wow, that’s an awful photoshop. educate yourself.
don’t get it twisted, i’ll give credit where credit is due but it wasn’t even watermarked. do you know the original editor? i’ll gladly give credit… and it wouldn’t make any sense now if i left the ’09 caption there would it? kthx.
I didn’t care about you not giving credits. I was just saying it’s a terrible shop and makes her look awful.
hellooooo~ tiffany is prtteier, in my opinion. yoona is too plain o: jessica~! :] i like jessica’s voice more, but maybe i’m biased o__o hyoyeon, of course. yuri :3 so prettyyyy~ hmm.. yoona. although there areee times when seohyun looks like a goddess ;D hyoyeon again :D this is hard but i guess tiffany? taeyeon is better. SUNNY~my favorite member is Jessica~she’s so pretty :3 and such a pretty voice tooooo.you should B2ST! if you haven’t already :]
AHHHHHhhhhhhHHHHH. I see whatcher saying. I just compared the pics right now.. I didn’t alter the image in anyway, I just cut off the caption but wordpress didn’t resize the image proportionally when I reposted.
It’s wordpress’s fault haaaaa, my bad. Honest mistake.
I like the second link a lot better @_@ The first one makes HyoYeon’s eyes really creepy ><
SNSD are my 9 genies said:
often underappreciated and overlooked but equipped with lethal dance moves and killer choding-ness, our Hyoyeon is a secret ninja/assassin as well!! happy birthday Dancing Queen/Kim Choding/Middle Child/Modest Child/clown of the group/(whatever nicknames are left) Kim Hyoyeon!!!
Happy Birthday Kim Hyoyeon! ^^

Happy Birthday Kim Hyoyeon! wish you all the best, may only good things happen to you!
Happy Birthday, gorgeous Dancing Queen ♥
Anti’s that tell her that she’s ugly, are blind.
People who say she can’t dance are even blinder.
HyoYeon, the most beautiful lady out there,
Happy Birthday ♥
Happy Birthday Hyoyeon!
Nice work Mae!

Happy birthday, our Dancing Queen!
happy birthday hyo unni!
happy birthday kim hyoyeon our dancing queen…..i love u and the 0ther 8 angels……i just love the way u girls are…..love x100000000000000 you all.,…
happy birthday hyo .. you’re the funniest one
I’ve always Adored Hyo ever since I first laid by eyes upon SNSD.
Along with Yoona, she was the first member who actually ‘STOOD OUT’ for me because she looks
a lot like Song Hye Kyo.
anyway… happy 22nd Birthday Hyo! I hope all of your wishes come true and I wish you more birthdays to
happy b’day dancing queen… ur dance its so cool.. best wish for you..
Happy Blessed 22nd/23rd birthday, Hyoyeon 😉 !
You’ll be the One and Only Dancing Queen to me (Abba’s iconic “Dancing Queen” tune starts playing in my mind :D).
Awesome post, ladies 😉 !
I especially love the linked reflective piece on Hyoyeon and how she copes with being the “un-noticed” one in the group (although I must honestly say that this is no longer a given, considering she’s blossomed into a real lady now 🙂 !)
It really hurts me when I hear people say “I think hyoyeon should leave the group since she doesn’t belong” or “she’s not as pretty as the other members” I just wanna be like b**** shut the f*** up! Without hyoyeon SNSD wouldn’t be the same! We S<3NES love all the members no matter what because just like it says above every member has a special role and hyoyeon's role is probably the most special! I'm not being bias but I can't imagine SNSD without hyoyeon or any other member! We love u hyoyeon! Happy birthday to our forever choding, modest, middle-child, athletic, danshin, silly, beautiful dancing queen!
I wonder if these people consider themselves as fans of SNSD after saying such hurtful things? To me, they are even worse than the worse anti-fans. People underestimate how painful such comments can be, and there’s no doubt in my mind Hyoyeon holds a lot of hurt from this.
But despite this, Hyoyeon always shows a positive attitude, and her strength and will to keep smiling, show kindness, and be a great team player is a very inspiring act.
I love Hyoyeon, and I love all nine girls equally. To me, they are all one and the same, who have grown together and become integrated as one.
happy bday my kim hyoseol!

happy birthday unnie! 🙂
you truly are one of a kind~! definitely deserving of the title
To the 8 girls that you roll with, you are part of their family, whether any outsider deems you worthy or not, and any true soshi fan should always support you and love you like your other 8 sisters. Your undeniable talent on the dancing field and the constant praise you get from your sisters when keeping the family together is more important than any negative comment that is thrown your way.
P.S. MAE!!! 2-left-shoes-Hwang!!! I KEEL YOU!!!!
you know it’s true bb. you know it’s true.

Enoch Tan said:
Hyoyeon is placed in SNSD to reveal who the true SONEs are!
True Sones are able to see how Hyoyeon plays a vital and irreplaceable role in SNSD.
Even all their birthday decades add up together to form their debut day (6 x 89) + (2 x 90) + (1 x 91) = 805. August 5
Every member in SNSD outshines all other members in other groups, because every part possess the shine of the whole.
Every member that finally debut in SNSD was capable of fitting into the collective group consciousness. That includes Hyoyeon.
Nice job Mae! Simple and to the point! Nicely written!
The only person in kpop who deserves the title of ‘Dancing Queen’ ~ Cute, funny, and always jjang! Happy birthday hyoyeon~~
Very well said~
Happy Birthday Kim Hyoyeon. I love you ❤
loved the video… loved the post… HPBD KIM HYOYEON!!

I apologize for this post in advance, as it’s going to be super nerdy. But I’m a super nerd so there you go. I am a huge Supergirl fan, have been most of my life. However I just found out today that Supergirls’ fictional birthday is the 22nd. The same as Hyoyeons. I find it ironic that for a while our 9 were going to be called the Super Girls. It’s also interesting that Supergirls’ real name is Kara. ( you know cause they are friends with Kara ) Regardless, both Supergirl and Hyoyeon are inspirations to me. So, Happy Birthday Hyoyeon, you’ll always be super to me.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful dancing queen! Bringing to much joy into all of our lives ❤ So silly yet mature… smart, beautiful, talented… I can go on and on
ahh hyoyeon… dancing queen and in my eyes variety show queen 🙂 happy birthday!
by the way, what is the song in the video tribute?
More birthdays to come for Hyoyeon. I think she could be casted on movies about dancing like the Step Up and You Got Served kinds.
I will never forget when Hyoyeon’s modesty first touched me,
It was when I watched Hello Baby, when she reveals Tiffany’s
caring side to baby Kyungsan by cleaning all the mess done
by other members and Kyungsan and noticed Tiffany’s concern
to Kyungsan from afar.
From this moment, I am certainly sure Hyoyeon is a very kind-hearted,
lovable, and caring person.
You are an amazing person!
Happy belated (argh stupid me) birthday!
I shed my manly tears when read this & the recommended reading..so true. i understand if she always felt that way but she can’t express it properly to anyone 😦
