  4. Haha! I remember that my friends and I all found out about Wonder Girls thanks to Youtube too =D and I’m glad we did ’cause now we’re all big fans <3.

  5. @coolsmurf: If it’s not too much trouble, a screenshot of the world map and traffic graph in the Views tab of the Insight page?

    It’s good that JYPE opted to leave the video up. 🙂 I hear Universal and Sony usually go for a DMCA takedown instead.

  6. @jaime, not over my channel. JYPE just has access to that So Hot MV because they only filed a copyright claim for that. Stats for that video will be sent to them and they can edit the broadcast options. I got the notice on 12th June.

  7. last piece of my curiosity.

    which videos do they actually have control over? including WGM? X-Man? WG’s perfs? technically it should just include the WG’s MVs since their perfs are by the broadcast stations?

    rreallly curious on how “open-minded” JYP is. hehe

  8. may i ask when did you get this “notice”? and how do you know if anything gets changed or editted? do they leave you messages and warnings?

    just curious. ^^

  9. wow. i didn’t know that JYP has control over your channel. now thats wierdly cool. the coolest thing is that he doesn’t control it too much. he knows that YOU also have a huge fanbase and that many netizens will be pissed if your vids get deleted. that’s why JYP is my fave. he thinks. ^^

    btw, the chances that the girls know about you and your work is immensely huge.

    imo, one of the reasons why they are soo popular on YouTube and worldwide is because of you, well duh.

    coooll. fighting, oppa! =)

  10. OMG coolsmurf you have to msg JYP back and tell him that I love yoobin and that my brother wants to marry her T.T lol jk

    that’s cool though that they didnt delete the vid >.< JYP actually has an official Youtube but it’s not as popular as coolsmurf’s page so I guess they figure they have to get the views and comments some way. and coolsmurf’s videos always has so many viewers. ^^

    aLthough I aDmiT thAt theY are not rEaLLY grEat singERs bUT thEY are grEat EnterTaiNers…GO WG!!!!

  17. @dooberap, they can place advertisements which they did but it was removed. It means they can edit the video details and how it is broadcast like me. they have control over that video just like me. But they allow it to remain which I’m glad. JYP is so open-minded. They disabled embedding so it can’t be hotlinked on other sites. I can change it back but I respect their decision.

  18. I know some Americans love the WG and I have a friend in the UK who totally fell in love with them after seeing So Hee in Tell Me and bought the album without checking them out and now he bought So Hot. I’m so slow on making my first Wonder Girls purchase. I already have So Hot as a ringtone.

  19. That’s so great to hear that WG are so popular!!!!!!

    Please Wonder Girls come to Germany one day!!!!!!!

  20. @flipflop, screenshot of which part of Youtube insight?

    Yes, the video is the one I have on my Youtube channel, but since the Korean article didn’t state, I didn’t want to be shameless and include it. By the way, JYP had sent a copyright letter to me via Youtube. But it wasn’t to ask me to remove it, just telling me that they have some form of control of my video.

  21. hey don’t forget malaysia too!!haha..all thanks to youtube especially coolsmurf’s channel!

  22. so proud of wonder girls!!! i always go on youtube to find anything Wondergirls related, and so hot is sooo catchy that even non Koreans (such as me) can get addicted to it.

    WONDER GIRLS ❤ FROM ENGLAND, come to London girls lol.

  23. eiiii~Don’t forget SG too!!The whole world loves them. They are ‘world singers’ literally. So HOT is booming everywhere right now(including the recent weather climate!!lol~) name it…on the charts, radio station, tv broadcast, internet forums, etc…they’re basically EVERYWHERE. And even though your post is based on your own personal view, it’s a basic fact actually.There is no doubt on their increasing popularity right now..They deserve it..I agree whole heartedly with you on this=))

  24. HAHAHA! coolsmurf they were talking about your video!!!!
    I’m soo proud of you and the girls..
    Wonder Girls you have fans from everywhere!! CANADA LOVES YOU!!

  25. coolsmurf, I was wondering if you could post a screenshot of the YouTube Insight page for the So Hot MV you uploaded?

  26. ัำััyep,

  27. xprezionz
