Who is Wendy?
Born Son Seung-wan under the sign of Pisces on the 21st of February 1994, in Seongbuk-dong, Seoul South Korea, Wendy is a 24-year-old Asian singer of Korean descent, perhaps best known to the world for being a part of the popular South Korean girl group named “Red Velvet.” She has also had a number of other successes as a musician over the course of her sometimes lucrative singing career over just the last few years.
Early Life: Growing up in USA and Canada
Wendy, she actually grew up in the USA and Canada, as her parents of unknown names and professions moved from the city of Jecheon in the North Chungcheong Province in South Korea, to Brockville, Ontario Canada with her when she was in fifth grade elementary, but then relocated to Faribault in Minnesota, where she attended Shattuck-Saint Mary’s boarding school. Here, she was an honor student and athlete, having earned several rewards for academics and music-related activities. She also began using her English name, Wendy Shon; later she moved back to Ontario, and attended Richmond Hill High School, where she took part in the school’s show choir also known as “Vocal Fusion.” She was now fluent in English, and also learned to speak Spanish and French. Although there’s no information about her college education, she is thought to have matriculated from high school in 2012.
Career: From a Student to a Star
Wendy had a strong desire to audition for a job in the entertainment industry from an early age, and while her parents didn’t support the intention of becoming rich through talent, and not finishing school, in 2011 they eventually allowed her to send a video for an online audition for Koreaboo’s Global Auditions with Cube Entertainment. She was then pronounced one of the 15 finalists from 5,000 contestants who were the personal pick of the legendary Korean singer Gina Jane Choi, and Koreaboo’s officials.
Finally, having participated at the S.M. Global Audition in Canada in 2012, Wendy struck a contract with SM Entertainment, which introduced her as a new member of the pre-debut group entitled “SM Rookies”, officially on the 14th of March 2014, while she released her first song entitled “Because I Love You” not long after, followed by the song’s video. Ultimately, on the 1st of August 2014, Wendy was officially pronounced the new member of “Red Velvet,” and since then, she has released over 10 songs, the most significant entitled “Spring Love”, which reached #7 on the peak chart positions in South Korea in 2015.
Love Life: A Mystery
As for Wendy’s romantic involvements, she hasn’t thus far revealed anything concerning this matter. Mostly, anything that she can or cannot tell to the public is monitored by SM Entertainment, so it’s not known whether Wendy is prohibited from addressing this subject or simply single and without a care in the world. It is unknown whether she had any boyfriends in her life.

Did you know that Korean superstars have very strict diets? Such is the case with Wendy and the remainder of the “Red Velvet” crew. They all have a specific way of dealing with their weight, although it’s not problematic to begin with, but their talent company likes to keep their figures in perfect check. Therefore, Wendy spent at least three years eating only half a portion of anything she likes every day, and she said to the public that she has to drink pumpkin juice every afternoon, which also helps her lose weight. It is common knowledge that Wendy is afraid of consuming just about anything in the company of her manager.
What is Wendy’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how rich Wendy is, as of mid-2018?
