Netizens are responding with hot interest to Sun Mi singing Lexy’s “Novice” on this week’s “So Yoo Jin’s FM Inkigayo’s Wonder Girls Special” radio show.
On 15th October, the Wonder Girls were captured having “Nobody YaJa-Time NoRaeBang” on “So Yoo Jin’s FM Inkigayo’s radio show. (’NoRaeBang’ is Koreans way of saying ‘karaoke’. ‘YaJa-Time’ is when you ignore age and talk on an equal level with each other. In Korean, there are formal, polite, and informal ways of talking – you decide which to use based on age and status.)
During this time, the Wonder Girls laid down questions to each other using BanMal (informal talk). If someone was unable to gave an inappropriate response or forgot to use BanMal, they had to sing as punishment.
Ye Eun picked out Sun Mi, “Unnie was very hungry and you said you were going to change, 30 minutes passed and the result was that we couldn’t eat.”
Sun Mi explained what happened on the day. Sun Mi said to Ye Eun, “I’m completely hungry”, so she made plans to go out and eat with Ye Eun. However, Sun Mi took around 30 minutes to pick out the clothes and put them on, and the result was that Ye Eun had to go out to eat alone.
During that time, Ye Eun had called out pathetically, “Sun Mi-ya, Unnie is hungry~”. As they were in the midst of moving, the clothes weren’t organized, so mindlessly Sun Mi replied, “You go ahead!”, while picking clothes.
Even though Sun Mi did offer an excuse to Ye Eun’s cross-examination, the rest of the members and host So Yoo Jin sided with Ye Eun. And so the young member, Sun Mi was given the penalty of singing “Novice”.
The response to her singing however was hot and well-received by netizens everywhere, “Why are my eyes and ears so happy like this?”, “The perfectly pretty Sun Mi’s voice”, “Sun Mi, I believe you and you can sing this well”, “I’ve always liked Sun Mi’s mid-tone voice. I wished a lot of people did as well, and then I saw the search standings go up and was happy”.
