Who is Wonder Girls?

Wonder Girls is one of the South Korean Girl Groups produced by Park Jin Young under JYP Entertainment. Wonder girls debuted in 2007 and it consists of 7 members: Sunmi, Sohee, Yubin, Hyuna, Yenny, Sunye and Hyelim. This group was co-managed in the United States by Creative Artists Agency (CAA). CAA is an American talent and sport agency business and manages numerous prestigious clients. Wonder girls choose K-pop, retro and pop rock music as their genres. Their hit single in late 2009 was Nobody and it was a success, gaining a spot at seventy six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Wonder girls became the first South Korean group to enter the chart.

Not only that, in Asia, wonder girl was successful at entering the Chinese market with the compilation album and they included Chinese language version of their hit single which is Tell Me, So Hot, and Nobody. Unfortunately, the group officially announced that they would disband on January 2017 because the negotiation of the contract renewal of some members was unsuccessful. Then, after their 10 year long run, it came to an end on February 10, 2017. It was their last show and as celebration of their 10th anniversary, they released the last song which was Draw Me. Hopefully, all the members of wonder girls members always succeed in the future.
