    Excellent work! One small thing, though – I always thought the roles were divided as so:

    Taeyeon – Leader, lead vocalist
    Tiffany – 2nd lead vocalist
    Jessica – 3rd lead vocalist
    Seohyun – Main vocalist, maknae
    Sunny – 2nd main vocalist
    Hyoyeon – Sub-vocalist, lead dancer
    Yuri – Sub-vocalist, main dancer
    Sooyoung – Vocalist, 2nd main dancer
    Yoona – Sub-vocalist, 3rd main dancer, face of the group

    (I put Sooyoung as vocalist instead of sub-vocalist because she’s getting more parts nowadays, and 2nd main dancer because she’s getting a lot of attention for her dancing – for example, being featured in TaeTiSeo’s “OMG” stage, and performing “Sway”.)

    • lightaheadi says:

      I personally agree with you on all of these, but I have to write down the official positions that SM puts down to be accurate. And if what I have is not the official one please tell me!

    • Jammie Lou says:

    – Jessica – 2nd Main Vocalist
    – Seohyun – 3rd Main Vocalist, Maknae

    – Sunny – Lead Vocalist
    – Hyoyeon – Main Dancer, Sub-vocalist
    – Yuri – 2nd Main Dancer, Sub-vocalist
    – Yoona – Sub-vocalist, Lead dancer, Visual
    – Sooyoung – Lead Dancer, Sub-vocalist

  3. mimirimim says:

    one question: which position is higher, sub-vocalist or vocalist?

    • Paple Luv says:

      Sub-vocalist is higher than vocalist .

      • lilacsparks says:

        Uhm no.

        The order goes like this:
        1) Main Vocalist (Person who gets the harder to sing parts in the songs, ex. high notes, etc)
        2) Lead Vocalist (Person who sings a lot of the song but doesn’t necessary sing the difficult parts)
        3) Vocalists (Just singers)
        4) Sub-Vocalists (More like background singers … or singers without a lot of main parts (solos, etc)).

  6. Arden says:

    I think this can be a nice move and one developers made
    I’m positive to draw in as wide as audience as possible. Check out the results here and compare and see which ones right for you. From there you can check ‘delete all’ to remove all unwanted e-mails.

  7. Ermelinda says:

    Prince of Persia was a uniquely PC on the console dominated genre.
    This means that it follows in the footsteps of some classic arcade games, most notably Arkanoid.
    Also it doesn’t use Xcode as it’s coding environment, only for finalizing and uploading to iTunes Connect.

  8. Use other networks than the phone was manufactured
    for. It allows you to give commands to your iPhone’s unix terminal or execute remote commands through SSH. If the device is running an older version of IOS it might be necessary to update the firmware on the device.
