Biography

Seoul, South Korea (2007 – 2013)

Wonder Girls (원더걸스) is a girl group from Seoul, South Korea, and consists of Sunye (선예), Yeeun (예은), Yubin (유빈) and Hyerim (혜림). Their producer and manager is singer-songwriter Park Jin-Young and the Wonder Girls are signed to his talent agency, JYP Entertainment. Each of the five original members were selected through auditions.

Debuting in early 2007, they became popular in the fall of that year with the song “Tell me.” They have scored three consecutive #1 hit singles: “Tell me”, “So hot”, and “Nobody”. In 2008, they won two Daesangs (“Artist of the Year” Awards).

The group began their entry into the American market in 2009, with lead single “Nobody”; the single became the first song by a Korean group to enter the Billboard Hot 100. They are co-managed in the United States by JYP Entertainment and Jonas Group. They managed to place 4th with their hit single “Nobody” on the Canadian single charts for the past 2 weeks of March 2011.

The group consists of the following members:
선예 (민선예 / Min Sun Ye)
예은 (박예은 / Park Ye Eun)
유빈 (김유빈 / Kim Yoo Bin)
혜림 (우혜림 / Woo Hye Lim).

Former member 현아 (김현아 / Kim Hyun A) left in June ‘07 due to health problems. She is now in girl group 4minute.

At the end of 2009, 선미 (이선미 / Lee Sun Mi) left to continue her education. She was replaced with trainee Hye Lim.
She later on returned to singing with the release of her hit-single 24시간이 모자라 in 2013.

In December 2013, Sohee (소희) left the group and their agency to focus on acting.

    I really don't want Sunmi to go back she's so much better as a soloist, she can do things that really bring out her talents and what she's best at rather than having to conform to what Yeeun and Yoobin are good at.

    I honestly think they can comeback as 3... Yeeun as main vocalist, Yubin main rapper and Lim lead vocalist and lead rapper, Lim is very talented tbh. [2] Sempre penso nisso, as três podem muito bem dar conta. Fora que é injusto elas ficarem mofando, principalmente a Lim.

    "Duvido que a Sunye volte, ela está dedica a ser uma boa irmã da igreja e está feliz com sua família. Fora que ela falou que não tinha planos para voltar." Concordo e eu ri alto do "boa irmã de igreja". Sunye esta fora mesmo, é uma pena, porque a voz dela era legal :'D PLMDDS JYP, coloca a Sunmin e volta com o grupo (só se Sohee poder participar rs)

    O JYP quer comeback do WG como 6 (= com todas), e há rumores de que possa acontecer mesmo já que a nova empresa da sohee concordou com esse comeback OT6..... fora que o chefe sabe respeitar o espaço das meninas, então acho que depois que a Sunye voltar do hiatus com a família, nós teremos as rainhas de volta </3
