Not content with just being a dark horse in Korea’s music industry in this latter part of the year, popular girl group Wonder Girls “Tell Me” song has also manage to turn eyeballs in far-away Thailand.
“Tell Me” by Wonder Girls stormed to the top of MTV Thailand’s International Chart (Nov 24 – 30) and in doing so, trumphing established international acts like Britney Spears and Alicia Keys. Results are tallied weekly through how many times it has been shown/dedicated on the channel plus the number of views.
Wonder Girls first album had only started to be available for sale in Thailand at the beginning of November and their popularity has been on a upward surge since then. Their top spot comes hot on the heels of their second place ranking in the third week of November. The time from which their album started selling until now, it has not even been a month and this is indeed some achievement in Thailand.
Wonder Girls management company, JYPE was delighted with this and said, “We have had a good response when we released the “Irony” single in February. We were kind of surprised and pleased when before even the album was released, the album had already stormed into the top 10 in the charts. We expect “Tell Me” to continue the Korean wave and create a similar whirlwind all over Asia.” Even the Thais can’t resist the “Tell Me” charm.
