Red Velvet's Wendy pursued her singing dream by auditioning for the S.M. Global Audition in Canada 2012. She made her debut with Red Velvet, as the main vocalist, two years later. Known for her amazing singing ability, positive attitude and huge reactions, Wendy has become well-known for her hilarious variety show appearances.

Let’s get to know more about Wendy!

5. Her favourite celebs are Louis Armstrong and Christina Confalonieri (her Louis Armstrong impression is on point! Haha)
