The Wonder Girls took the hit reality show “So You Think You Can Dance” by storm last night (Dec. 9) and may well launch the Korean invasion of U.S. pop music.
The oldest Yubin , 21, joined band in late-2007. Sunye (Sun) is the leader and Ye-eun (Yenny) is the group’s newest member. Both are 20 years old. At 17, Sunmi (Mimi) and Hyunah are the youngest members.
The band’s performance on last night’s show gave them their first exposure before a major U.S. audience, and they are already working on their next album with Dave Stewart, formerly of The Eurythmics.
Stewart is producing their first album, set for release in February. The group is also planning to launch a headlining U.S. tour in January.
The Wonder Girls became the first Korean singers to ever enter the U.S. singles charts in October, landing at 76 on Top-100 singles charts with virtually no promotion.
