Wonder Girls notched their third Mutizen award in a row on SBS “Inkigayo” today. They were up against Baechigi, Shinee, Tae Yang, V.O.S, Super Junior Happy, Epik High having won Take 7 for the past two weeks.
Wonder Girls and Epik High special stage was kind of underwhelming. It was first of all pretty short and it was obvious that their styles didn’t mesh at all. Wonder Girls came out first lipsyncing to Jewerly’s “Baby One More Time” before Epik High came in and then rapped a little and then the whole thing ended. Epik High’s “One” next but it only featured Sun Ye as she sang Ji Sun’s part. She was trying her very best but she couldn’t quite hit Ji Sun’s range.
Epik High then did a little of their “Umbrella” number before Wonder Girls checked in with a remixed version of “So Hot” which had quite many extra dance routines and made the song looked way cooler and slick than the usual fare. I thoroughly enjoyed their solo remixed “So Hot” stage I must say. Was kinda worried at the start where Sun Mi and Ye Eun did the shake and the latter’s shirt strap came off. But thankfully she realised it and adjusted it back.
Sun Mi was so random with her “Umbrella” at the end. ^^ The crowd was red hot throughout. Yoo Bin and Ye Eun also added their “Umbrella” comment too before their encore performance. Hope they consider performing this again because it gives their “So Hot” a new lease of life.
