A Look into the Wonder Girls (Wednesday February 18, 2009 Korea)

Posted on: February 18, 2009

A Look into the Wonder Girls: Yoo BinWhat would the Wonder Girls be without their power rapper Kim Yoobin? Yoobin was trained under Good Entertainment for about two years before she was chosen to replace former member Hyun Ah. The change was very quick, and needless to say, it was a tough situation for her. The Wonder Girls already experienced some fame with their hit song “Irony,” but hit a rocky point from both the loss of Hyun Ah and the injury Sohee incurred while filming the movie 뜨거운 것이 좋아 (”I Like It Hot“).


But Yoobin made her debut right in time for the hit song “Tell Me” in September 2007.″

“It was really hard because all of the other members already had their musical debut together, while I had to experience it alone. I worried a lot, but luckily, “Tell Me” did very well. It was the turning point of my life.”
And what an amazing turning point it was. Obviously, a lot of responsibility was put on Yoobin, and she needed to adjust to the situation quickly, and that she did (not to mention doing it very well, too). Because of her effortless sense of soul and spiciness, it took no time for fans to love her for her hot flows and her sultry appeal. She may be the newest addition, but she’s the missing piece of pure hip hop flavor the Wonder Girls needed to complete the pop puzzle. Go Yoobin!

A Look Into The Wonder Girls: Sun MiAt the age of 12, Sun Mi’s love for singing and dancing eventually turned her into a JYP trainee, where she trained alongside future Wonder Girls Sun Ye and So Hee. Despite her successful and busy career, she continues to attend school and has no plans on giving up on her academic goals.


In June 2008, Sun Mi was rushed to a medical center because she was having trouble breathing. Later, it was revealed that the cause of her hyperventilation was stress and fatigue. As you may have noticed, her bubbly humor is quite infectious, but underneath her lighthearted exterior also lies an extremely focused and ambitious person. Her medical emergency is a strong reminder that beyond working hard, we also need to take care of ourselves with humor and positivity. Fighting, Sun Mi!

Under all of the glitz and the glamor, Sun Mi is the quintessential girl next door—the one who can turn your frown very upside down. On her down time, she prefers to retreat to the solace of the cozy indoors and likes to snuggle up to read one of her favorite sci-fi/horror novels. And that’s what’s so great about her: beyond her beauty and her talent, she is a refreshingly real role model. Sun Mi may be part of an iconic pop group, but at the end of the day, she is still very much a silly, creative and imaginative young woman, and those are all qualities that resonate with many, if not all, young girls.

Name: Sun Mi

A Look Into The Wonder Girls: So HeeWonder Girl Ahn Sohee has accomplished much in her short sixteen years of life. Asides from being part of the #1 girl group in South Korea, she’s also an accomplished actress and model, as well as a general cutie to boot. What’s surprising is that she’s done all of this while managing to attend her classes at Changmun’s All Girls High School.


At the age of 12, Sohee became a JYP trainee. She doubted herself at times, but was encouraged by fellow future Wonder Girl Sunye to keep going and to follow her dreams. Sohee’s generally considered the shyest member of the group, which can unfortunately be mistaken for aloofness to people unfamiliar with the group. Being the youngest Wonder Girl, she’s also seen as the “cute maknae” of the group. But despite her age, she’s gained a lot of wisdom and is more mature than most people her age.

Sohee has also shown great interest in both acting and modeling outside of Wonder Girls. In early 2008 she starred in her first movie “Hellcats (I Like It Hot)” and most recently guest starred in the sitcom “That Person is Coming.” When it comes to modeling, Sohee has been featured in various fashion magazines, including Numero, Vogue, Elle Girl, and W.

In only two short years, Sohee has constantly proven herself to be a star in every sense of the word. And now, there’s a fair amount of certainty that Sohee will continue growing as a Wonder Girl, and as an actress and a model.

Name: Ahn So Hee
Birthday: June 27, 1992
