Now I am not sure why there’s all the negativity towards Min Sun Ye being the leader of the Wonder Girls recently. She might not be the most talented or create much headlines or you make up your own reason. But she’s the leader for the fact that the Wonder Girls were created by JYP for her. She is just contented to stay in the background and let the other members shine. When things get rough, she will step up and handle everything. That’s Sun Ye.
Everyone has a role to play in the Wonder Girls. And right now, there’s absolutely no reason to change the leader or whatsoever. Who changes a leader when everything’s fine? And BTW, I am a Sun Ye fan. Not So Hee.
The following are text written by a Korean Wonderful titled “Do you know Min Sun Ye? If you don’t, don’t say anything” and translated by wonderkid.
She’s a leader who makes sure that the other members get more screen time.
A couple of days ago, on PKL’s radio show, she told the other members that she feels guilty because she feels like she hasn’t done a lot for them as a leader, and so she apologized to them and said she was really sorry.
She’s a leader who is checks, double checks, and makes sure that the members and the mic stands stand in the right position. ^^
She’s a person who gives two big thumbs to the fans,
Whenever she makes an acceptance speech she has never, not even once, forgotten to thank WonderFul…it’s a small gesture but we’re always thankful…
The note above was written by Mark PD on his cyworld diary…
Sun Ye grew up under the care of her grandma and grandpa. A few days before their “Tell Me” comeback, her grandpa passed away. We were so worried about her, and as expected when we watched their comeback performance, Sun Ye had lost all the fat in her cheeks to the point where it was just heart-breaking to watch her. (note: Mark PD is the producer of the Wonder Girls’ MTV series and is a close friend to the girls)
Would a person like this really single out So Hee? When So Hee was sick with a cold @ MKMF 2007, Sun Ye took care of So Hee. (note: during “Tell Me” days, there were outrageous rumors going around saying that the other members were singling out So Hee and making her into an outcast)
“When we were just getting beginning to promote ‘Tell Me,’ we got into a car accident. I quickly got out of the car to check and see if all the other members were okay, and when I found out that they were all safe…I said ‘Thank You’ more than a 1000 times” – Sun Ye’s <Arena Magazine> Interview
Even though she said this, she’s the one who got hurt the most. As many of you know, Sun Ye grabbed Sun Mi, who was in danger, and rescued her to safety.
Reason why JYP believes in Sun Ye? Reason why Sun Ye is the leader? Sun Ye came to be Wonder Girls’ Sun Ye by effort more than talent. While the others went home to rest, she stayed behind so that she can practice more.
“One of the biggest reasons that motivated me to achieve my goals was because I wanted to look after and take care of my grandma…”
A message to her grandma, “When I ask you ‘do you need anything?’ or ‘do you want anything to eat?’ you can just tell me now..now…I want you to spend the rest of your life a little more happier. I want to relieve all your stresses so you can rest peacefully, and to do that I will be a hardworking granddaughter.” – from <The Star Show> interview
“The reason why I have to push myself so hard is because right now, my dad’s health isn’t that great. Another reason is because I have to repay my grandma back for all the unwavering support that she has given me all these years. That’s why I must succeed…when I think of my family…”
Her face might be pretty but her heart is even prettier, that’s why I love Sun Ye so much. The reasons stated above are the reasons why I’ve fallen for Sun Ye and the reason why I trust Sun Ye in whatever she does. If you ask me, why I like the Wonder Girls, I can say proudly that, I might not know everything about these five girls but what I am certain is that I believe in their humanity.
Knowing Wonder Girls is one of the greatest gifts in my life.
