Sunny hates red bean paste, so whenever they eat bungeoppang (fish-shaped pastry stuffed with sweetened red bean paste), she only eats the head and the tail of the fish, the parts without too much red bean paste, and she gives the body of the fish to Taeyeon, who loves red bean paste. Great teamwork!
