He also added, “I don’t want any of you to miss this concert because this is not just a huge event but also the first independent Wonder Girls concert outside of Korea. The best and special part for Thai fans is that we will get to see each of the Wonder Girls member show us their solo performances too.”
After the announcement from the JYPE representative, the moment that most fans had been waiting for finally arrived. A video clip with the voice of the Wonder Girls straight from Korea was shown to Thai fans.
After the clip ended, it was time for Nickhun Horvejkhun, representing 2PM to speak. NichKhun was aked by the MC about how famous were the Wonder Girls in Korea. He revealed, “They are very well-liked and popular. Not only do they have teenage fans, even ahjussis and ajummas like them a lot. They can easily sing along and everything so they are really popular and hot with them.”
He also revealed the Wonder Girls habits and characteristics in his own opinion, “To me, Sun Ye has a lot of self confidence. She’s the leader type and she is really the right person as the leader of the group. Ye Eun, she’s a really hardworking person. She’s studying and working at the same time. She also tries her best too. And for Yoo Bin, you probably noticed her deep boyish voice right? For rapping. But to tell you the truth, she’s always acting cute (laughs). For So Hee, she’s a quiet person. But whenever she smiles, the world seems to be brighter. Everytime you see her smile, you would also let out a smile instantly. And finally, Sun Mi. She’s an adorable person. She has her own world, her own jokes, and most importantly, her own way of talking. Sometimes, she would joke with people but they just don’t understand her joke (laughs).”
Nickhun also revealed that he is really close to So Hee after working together (tango performance at the 2008 MKMF). “I am kind of close to So Hee because we had to practice tango together for a show recently. Therefore, we had the opportunity to go out, eat together, etc. So we’re especially close.”
