Wonder Girls

^U^ wOnDeR GiRls

환영합니다. !! [Hwan-yŏng-ham-ni-da] Cerita k-pop kali ini adalah mengenai sebuah kumpulan yang sememangnya amat popular di seluruh asia dan telah memasuki pasaran Amerika. Kumpulan ini amat popular dengan lagu ‘Nobody’ yang menjadi siulan para remaja dan juga turut digemari golongan dewasa. Bait-bait lirik lagu ini telah melonjakkan nama mereka ke persada antarabangsa.

I want nobody, nobody but you
I want nobody, nobody but you
How can I be with another? I don't want any other
I want nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody

Kumpulan yang dimaksudkan adalah Wonder Girls (원더걸스)- WG ditubuhkan pada awal tahun 2007. Terdiri daripada 5 orang gadis remaja yang super cute iaitu Sun Ye, Ye-eun, Sohee, Yoobin, dan Hye-rim. Kumpulan ini mengeluarkan debut mini pertama The Wonders Begin pada awal tahun 2007 .Pada masa ini berlaku pertukaran ahli dimana Hyuna meninggalkan WG dan digantikan dengan Yoobin. Kemudian melancarkan album The Wonder Years pada bulan September.Dimana lagu Tell Me telah melonjakkan nama kumpulan ini. Kemudiannya WG melancarkan single So Hot pada June 2008 juga berjaya mendapat tempat dihati peminat seterusnya WG bertambah popular dengan lagu Nobody beberapa bulan kemudian dan lagu ini telah dinobatkan sebagai lagu paling popular pada tahun tersebut.

Seterusnya kumpulan ini melancarkan konsert jelajah mereka yang pertama di Bangkok pada Febuari 2009 dan agensi mereka mengumumkan pada pengujung konsert di Seoul mereka akan terbang ke Amerika Syarikat untuk melancarkan versi bahasa inggeris Nobody.

WG kemudiannya turut terlibat dengan kumpulan pop Amerika yang sangat terkenal dikalangan remaja iaitu Jonas Brothers semasa konsert kumpulan itu pada 2009. Ini melonjakkan lagi nama WG di US sekaligus menyaksikan Nobody mendapat tempat di Billboard Hot 100. Ini merupakan kejayaan yang amat membanggakan bagi sebuah kumpulan dari asia.

WG terus melalui perbagai perubahan dan dugaan apabila salah seorang ahli mereka iaitu Sun Mi mengambil keputusan untuk keluar dari kumpulan bagi melanjutkan pelajaran pada Febuari 2010. Ini memeningkan pihak agensi dalam mencari pengganti yang sesuai dan dapat serasi bersama mereka. Namun pencarian itu akhirnya menemukan kepada seorang penyanyi kelahiran Hong Kong iaitu Hye-rim dan WG mengeluarkan sebuah mini album pebgai bahasa pada May yang bertajuk 2 Different Tears.
