Kpop. Kpop for those of you that don’t know is short for Korean pop music. I have always been a fan of this genre ever since the Wonder girls formed in 2007 so I will always have a soft spot for the Wonder girls.
In my opinion they triggered the korean music wave with their addictive dance song tell me and so hot and YES I did learn their dances! They also had addictive ballads such as “This Time.” When they first started there was a young lady named Hyun ah and she left and went on to join the band 4minute. She was replaced by rapper Yubin who became my favourite. I was excited when they decided to take their music to the states with their track Nobody but I personally felt it wasn’t good enough, their concept was not “The Wonder Girls” I saw it as “The Dream Girls.” But I had faith in them, Sun mi left and my faith in them began to die. New bands such as 2NE1 and Sistar fueled my Kpop addiction and Wonder girls slowly disappeared into the background, even with their comeback “2 different tears.”
2011 November… THEY HAVE COMEBACK.
Their new album Wonder World shows they have matured and their tracks have more of a commercial sound to it with that cheesy quality they started off with WHICH I LOVE, they also have those dim light session soulful songs and Hyelim proves she isn’t just Sun mi’s filler with her rapping on track 10! They have twelve tracks and their first release was Be my baby and they even have a catchy dance video, its a bit single ladies by Beyonce but as usual, they take it and make it their own. Wonder Girls well done! I’ve been listening to them since the beginning, they always have moments where I slowly lose interest but they always slap me and wake me up to remind me how much I adore them!
ALSO, I AM STILL ADDICTED TO THAT BODY WAVING SONG MA BOY BY SISTAR! The song and dance is just so catchy, the meaning of the song is pretty sad and relatable to anyone whose feeling broken hearted BUT ITS WIERD how they make it sound so fun and hopeful haha. I got this video off youtube and its of all of Sistar performing Ma boy! (source: youtube user – sistardang)
