KTF (Korea Telecom Freetel) released some figures this morning with regards to the best selling songs (most downloaded) on their mobile service, with the top 100 songs listed. The most downloaded song was So Hot by the Wonder Girls, which according to KTF, accounted for 14.4% of downloads in 2008.
Wonder Girls Sun Mi, Ye Eun, Sun Ye attended Alicia Keys “As I Am” Concert at Jamsil Sports Complex this evening where Tae Yang was the opening act.
Don’t ask where So Hee or Yoo Bin is. They didn’t go. Full-stop.
After losing to Tae Yang for the past three weeks on M! Countdown, the Wonder Girls had a new competitor which was Brown Eyes who had a successful comeback since releasing their new album.
But the Wonder Girls long wait eventually paid off as they were awarded #1 on M! Countdown after four weeks. Their Wonderfuls fan support edging out Brown Eyes. But, neither groups performed at M! Countdown today.
Another week, but same result! Wonder Girls were in the running for #1 at M! Countdown, 3rd July with Tae Yang. But possibly fearing the worse (ok, I made this up), the Wonder Girls didn’t even turn up and perform. Tae Yang performed “Only Look At Me” and a remix version of Big Bang’s “Lie”.
It was pretty neck-to-neck stuff in the votes per round with Wonder Girls nicking all of the rounds bar one by a few votes. But that one round proved to be crucial as it was a big gap. In the end, Tae Yang won by 942 votes to 895 for Wonder Girls. Congrats to Tae Yang for the M! Countdown hat-trick.
The Wonder Girls were recently featured in an MNet Wide News coverage of this year’s summertime comebacks with Wonder Girls up against Tae Yang.
During the interview, the MNet host shared that while he was in Big Bang’s car, they played the “So Hot” single to no end. Ye Eun declared, “Tae Yang might like our music, but really, his manager is a great fan of Sun Mi’s!”
The screen then cut to a clip from the April shooting of Big Bang’s Baskin Robbin’s CF. G-Dragon and T.O.P teased their manager for being a bigger fan of the Wonder Girls, Sun Mi in particular over Big Bang.
They also revealed embarrassing details about the fanboy. In addition to having a Wonder Girls ringtone (at that time), and listening to infectious Wonder Girls music all day, he also had about fifty pictures of Sun Mi on his desktop according to G-Dragon. T.O.P added, “His computer’s password hint was ‘my love’… I typed in ‘Sun Mi’, and it worked!”
Sun Mi played it down saying
He probably likes Wonder Girls more than me, right?
