Wonder Girls has been a real success story thus far with their “Tell Me” song being known to nearly everyone in Korea, be it small children to senior folks. In fact, “Tell Me” song is quite a possible candidate for song of the year in 2007 despite its simplicity. It has been quite a while since the days of S.E.S and Fin.K.L that another girl group has managed to get so much attention as them.
Their success has not come easy as they had to cope with So Hee being sidelined while filming a movie, Kim HyunA leaving the group through illness, a serious traffic accident that had casualties and the introduction of a new member, Yoo Bin. All that happened over the past year. They may have caught a lucky break with their retro song but there is hard work involved as well.
For those who have just hopped onto the bandwagon and unfamiliar with them, the following will be a picture guide to the Wonder Girls from their formation till present. The wonder begins now:
First up is our leader, Min Sun Ye. She came out tops among thousands of people from an audition. She had to train and wait for five long years before finally able to perform on stage. Doesn’t she look like Eugene from S.E.S from her audition pictures?
Wonder Girls became a reality because of her presence. Under her smiling face lies a strong and warming heart, always there for her group members and moving the fans.
Although Mandu So Hee is the youngest member but she is considered to be the most experienced member as she has a movie to her name. Doesn’t talk much but is the cover girl for the Wonder Girls. Her doll-like appearance and in-born talent in posing makes her destined to embark on this path to stardom.
Her debut really made eyes turn!
Her now infamous dumpling face!
Sun Mi just like the next door girl in class, pretty and lovable.
Now capturing the hearts of many with her beautiful looks.
And now more often than not, her eccentric behavior.
The Queen was once the last member to join the Wonder Girls. A girl who harboured dreams of being a star and became a Wonder Girl.
Becoming an established vocalist in Wonder Girls after hard work and training!
HyunA is a real pity and evokes painful thoughts when her name is mentioned. No matter when or where you are, we can never forget her child-like coolness and her dancing vibe.
She is unlikely to return to the Wonder Girls but we wish her all the best in her future career. We will always remember her and keep a lookout for her!
Yoo Bin’s arrival got us all excited once again with her cool persona!
Her incredible rapping ability will no doubt push Wonder Girls to another level!
Debuting with “Irony” and getting lots of attention…
And how can we forget the storm that “Tell Me” created in 2007!
Popularity are like bubbles but their friendship is everlasting…
Another one showing their friendship…
Their child-like smiles and looking pretty w/o makeup…
Their achievement of “Best Newface Female” award @ MKMF 07
We have gained a lot after following them from their debut days till now, we have learned and grow along the way. Here’s to a wonderful future for the Wonder Girls and us fans, remember to give them all the support they need!
