Wonder Girls

14 January:
The Wonder Girls recently volunteered to teach Hangul, or the Korean language, to children of multicultural families in South Korea.

According to a charity PR notice, the Wonder Girls paid a visit to ‘Global Sharing Love‘, an organization that supports multicultural families. While there, the members gave lessons on the Korean language to thirty children by explaining several Korean onomatopoeias.
Though it was for only one day, the children enjoyed the lively atmosphere created by the Wonder Girls’ warmth and enthusiasm.
Commenting on the experience, member Yubin expressed, “Children are our future and our hope. It’s not important where they come from, nor what skin color they have. Living together equally is what’s important.”
The girls decided to choose Hangul as the subject for their one-day course because they realized the importance of the Korean alphabet while performing all over the world. Hyerim expressed, “Korean is a very warm language, it creates a bond with people. It relaxes you.”

On February 10, 2007, a five member group debuted under the title Wonder Girls, snagging the hearts of the Korean public. Three years, five smash hits and over fifty official Korean music awards later, the girls have found themselves betwixt two critical markets: while a hit-laden career has launched them into becoming household name throughout Asia, they have also become fixated with reaching similar heights of fame in America.
In 2007, the ladies swept Korea by storm with their highly addictive track, Tell Me, which, with its catchy yet simple dance and addictive tune, arguably revolutionized kpop choreography for good. Later on, the quintet continued its widespread success with So Hot, earning titles as ‘Korea’s Little Sisters,’ then dominated Asia with the Nobody craze. Although the hype has died down in Korea since the track’s release, Nobody is still gaining attention internationally and is commonly played on the streets of many Asian countries today. While gearing up for their official American debut in 2010, the Wonder Girls also released 2 Different Tears, which, with only a few weeks of minimal promotions in Korea, won the Girls awards on music shows and charts.
Since arriving in the United States, the Girls have opened for the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Earth, Wind & Fire, cracked the Billboard charts twice, and have mix and mingled with America’s elite as guests to NYC Fashion Week and other prominent events. They’ve worked with Perez Hilton, appeared on the Wendy Williams Show and performed on So You Think You Can Dance. They have top-notch producers molding their official debut album set to drop later this year. Even in America, they get recognized and stopped on the streets for photos and autographs.
Yet the Girls have seemingly decided to stay close to their humble roots, opting for modest lifestyles in New York. Today marks the group’s fourth anniversary, and the Girls celebrated with a live video webchat with their fans from the JYPE office this morning. During this chat, Twitter fans showed their support as the term ‘4WonderYears‘ hit the Trending Topics list.
In true Wonder Girls fashion, the five foodaholics began by talking excitedly about dining around the city for Restaurant Week and baking special chocolates that morning in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. They also opened an anniversary gift from groups of Wonderfuls in New York and Korea. While reading one of the Korean fan letters, leader Sunye had to pause as she teared up.
The members reminisced about their Wonder Girls World Tour last summer, citing Chicago (Sunye), Hawaii (Lim), Washington DC (Yoobin), New York (Sohee) and Toronto (Yeeun) as their favorites. They also chatted about the JYP US Tour and performing in China over Halloween. The Girls then revealed information about future performances, talking about their upcoming stage in Thailand and hinting at possible performances in Australia, Europe and Japan later this year.
The Wonder Girls also spent time answering questions and requests from their fans. At one point, they sang ‘Happy Birthday’ in Chinese to one fan, and Sunye sang Maybe (from the Dream High OST) live to fans. They shared their favorite numbers, favorite iPad apps, favorite types of chocolate, favorite movies, Lim’s entrance & adjustment into the group, and thoughts on living New York. ”It’s so good to walk on the streets here,” Sunye exclaimed and reminded, “Walking is really good for your health.
The Girls also showed close, laidback relationships with the JYPE staff, playfully trying to get a few of them to come into the videochat.
On the subject of their album, Yeeun said, “We’re definitely working on [the album] and it’s going great, and some of the songs are already done recording … We’re very excited to release the songs.” Although they were reluctant to reveal any details about their upcoming songs, Sunye offered, “There will be our name in the song. It’s going to be really fun, addictive… yeah. I bet you’ll like it.“ Lim continued, “I would have to say is that it is very different than what we have done.

10 Februari: Wonder Girls and producer Claude Kelly have been scaling their way up the headlines with their recent recording sessions in the studio this past month. Today, a two minute exclusive on Cambio has been released, giving fans a sneak peek at what Claude and the Girls have been up to!
For those of you that don’t know, Claude Kelly has worked with a large number of huge American artists including Britney Spears (Circus), Miley Cyrus (Permanent December), Bruno Mars (Grenade) and Flo Rida (Who Dat Girl), so his close participation on the Wonder Girls’ upcoming debut album has drawn lots of interest.
Although the video (watch it here!) doesn’t reveal any teasers of the tracks themselves, Claude gives us insight on the process he undergoes to produce a hit track. “The best songs come out of knowing [the members'] personalities and, having met all five of them and worked with them now, I really know the differences between them and how they move, how they talk, how they sing,” Claude explains as the girls dance and cheekily throw snow at each other throughout the video. Later on, the Girls teach Claude a bit of Korean. “When we’re done, I’ll be like ‘daebak (대박)!‘” he exclaimed.
Furthermore, the producer talked about the importance of creating a hit that caters to both the American audience and the international fanbase they already have.
I want [the track] to be edgy and fun and catchy and danceable so that people of all ages and all ethnicities really can sing along to it,” Claude continued. ”That’s my goal. I’m probably not going to rest until I get it done that way.
With Claude Kelly and other top producers working on this album, which we’ve been told is now scheduled for an April release, we’re going to have a ton of great music to look forward to this spring. First TVXQ, next Big Bang, and in a few months, the Wonder Girls…
