Precious Moments as Wonder Girls Member
Sunmi and the other members of Wonder Girls are very close. Moreover, while in Wonder Girl’s, this group had variety show programs about the group’s daily life. The programs are, MTV Wonder Girls, Wonder Bakery, Welcome to Wonderland, Made in Wonderland, and Made in Wonder Girls. Because of the programs, Sunmi and the other ex-members have known each other very well. Here are the precious moments!
Re-joining Wonder Girls
Amid the success that even brought Wonder Girls name to the USA, Sunmi decided to be absent or on hiatus from her career as an idol. At that time, there’s wasn’t much explanation about why Sunmi decided to vacate her role in the group. JYP Entertainment only said that the idol singer wanted to focus on pursing her academics.
In 2013, after her hiatus, she finally decided to return the music industry. She released hits such as “24 hours” and “Full Moon”, while showing her image as a female soloist. However, this didn’t last long. In 2015, Sunmi rejoined with the Wonder Girls, but with the new formation consisting of Sunmi, Yubin, Yenny, and Hyelim.
Wonder Girls had a different concept, they were no longer just a girl-group, but a band. The Wonder Girl’s new formation had Sunmi as bassist, Yenny as keyboardist, Hyelim as guitarist and Yubin as drummer.
After they had already worked together, JYP’s shade group officially stopped working in the band’s formation. In other words, these four beautiful girls agreed to decide to disband.
This decision was first published by JYP Entertainment in a farewell video titled ‘Thank You For Being Wonderful’. In the video, all of the members said thank you and apologized to their fans (Wonderful) about this. Unfortunately, during their apologies, none of them revealed the exact reason why they were disbanding.
As we know, Wonder Girls don’t get promotions for their music career so far. Plus, the members haven’t been shown as successful soloists as achieved by the members in music groups. After disbanding, Sunmi was the only one who didn’t renew her contract with JYP, instead, she moved to Makeus Entertainment and debuted as soloist. Even though the group no longer exists, Sunmi is still close to the other members.

At the beginning of 2019, Sunmi released her latest single, a song titled “Noir”. Her new song is really popular after ‘Gashina’. Sunmi held her first world tour, “WARNING World Tour” 2019, in New York City on March 15. There, she delivered exclusive news to her fans about her plan to return in 2019.
