Red Velvet's Wendy appeared on JTBC's 'Cook Representative' on May 4.


She revealed on this day, "While living in the United States, I received the Obama President's Award [for Academics] while I was in middle school there," and introduced herself in great English to the chefs from Dubai who were present that day.

Kim Sung Joo asked the chefs, "Have you ever received President's Awards?" and they said they had not.  Ahn Jung Hwan then revealed he had indeed received one for being good at soccer.

Don't mean to rain on her parade but..lots of people get those types of awards..lol. The Korean people don't know that though so...keep showing off, I guess.

Wendy went to my high school (which was super focused of academic excellence) needless to say she was an average student (like 80s). Definitely not the in the top 80th percentile of our year. She didn't take any AP courses and was enrolled even took the ESL french class with all the FOBs. I didn't get the impression that she cared that much about her grades seeing as how she left for Korea to train with SM in the middle of grade 11 exams (i.e. didn't write any of her exams)

They literally give that award to everyone in middle school. Now the real things is college my friends. But oh well, if this works as inspiration for someone out there I guess It's all good.

Praising her for her perfect English is like praising a Korean idol for their perfect Korean...

For the confused... Wendy was born in Korea, grew up in Toronto Canada, and went to a high-end boarding school in Minnesota for a time (2 yrs?). She is Canadian, not American.

I got it in 5th grade. And I thought she was Canadian

She was born in Korea, moved to Canada when she was 10, studied abroad in the U.S. for Middle School at Shattuck's Saint Mary's boarding school in Minnesota and then she went back to Canada and finished high school there.
