Wondergirls debut in America
Oh my, after Rain, Se7en and BoA and many more, the floodgate has been flung open. Of course, i’m refering to the Korean-artistes-breaking-into-the-Amercan-market gate. After Rain and company, singers like Son Dambi joined in the gang. And now Wondergirls have officially broken into the angmoh market.
English names for the Wondergirls
Unlike other Korean celebs who entered the US market, WG decided to pick english names for themselves (probably to ensure easy remembrance of names). Sun-ye, the leader is now known as “Sun”, Ye-eun “Yenny”and Sun-mi “Mimi”. Yu-bin and So-hee however decided to retain their Korean names.
Best of luck, WG. Nevertheless, let’s see how long these ambitious musicians can last in the American market.
