Since the Wonder Girls is the first successful Korean female idol group to break into the U.S. Market. JYP, of JYP Entertainment, has become quite the visionary and had announced (in January) that he will be debuting a new girl group. This time the group will be a mix of Chinese and Korean members–basically a Chinese version of the Wonder Girls–who will tour the Chinese-speaking world. ALLKPOP reported that the last member of the Chinese Wonder Girls will be chosen from an open audition online.
Starting (March 10), they began receiving video auditions from women born between 1987 to 1996 on Daum tvPot. Those who make the cut from this online pool will be invited to audition in person at the JYP Center on April 4.
This online selection process was first used in 2006, when JYPE found YeEun, who later became the 5th member of the original Wonder Girls.
