What was supposed to be a great Saturday to catch the girls via online tv for us non-Korean fans and for Korean Wonderfuls in Ulsan to see them live at night went up in smoke after a series of incidents made both of them non-events.
First of all, the Wonder Girls was scheduled to appear on Music Core yesterday afternoon. But with MBC being a free-to-air broadcaster, they had to show a generic baseball game instead. So while the Wonder Girls recorded Music Core like scheduled, the entire Music Core program wasn’t shown. As such, the Wonder Girls performance on Music Core will be shown next week instead.
There was supposed to be a Big Music Fiesta Concert at Ulsan to commemorate MBC’s 40th anniversary last night. Stars that were slated to perform included DBSK, Big Bang, So Nyeo Shi Dae, Wonder Girls, V.O.S. and Jewelry. But strangely enough, the concert was cancelled at the very last minute. No reasons were given for the cancellation although most said that it was due to poor planning. But it is strange given that this concert was announced in late August and it was a concert to celebrate MBC’s 40th anniversary. Probably some groups couldn’t turn up as scheduled IMO forcing the non-event.
The updated preview and pictures of Kim Jong Kook and the Wonder Girls as the guests for the upcoming episode of MBC “Come To Play” talkshow on the MBC website hosted by Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Won Hee has got netizens buzzing. On one hand, you have the most popular girl group currently in Korea, the Wonder Girls appearing together on the show for the 1st time (So Hee was by herself promoting her movie in January), then you have Kim Jong Kook appearing on TV for the first time since his release from the military. And this is ahead of his album release even. It doesn’t hurt that both are my favourites as well!!!
Now Shin Hye Sung and the Wonder Girls have worked together twice last year, appearing together on Park Kyung Lim’s Wonderful Outing and then the latter appeared as guests on Hye Sung’s concert and even performed “Tell Me” together. Another collaboration is on the cards as the Wonder Girls will be appearing on Hye Sung’s concert once again on the 18th of October.
