The Wonder Girls‘ return to the Korean music scene has been nothing short of explosive: after releasing twobatches of photo teasers that blew everyone away with the ladies’ mature transformations, the Wonder Girls have delivered an incredibly fierce video teaser for their comeback album!
With equal levels of sophistication and elegance exhibited in the previous releases, this video has got everything that fans have been anticipating: a gorgeous set, and a rocker-chic transformation that exceeds expectations. The teaser opens with a powerful vocal note, followed by flashes of each member amid a room of hanging lightbulbs and music equipment, with visuals full of hairflips, studs and leather.
Before embarking on their venture into the American market, the Wonder Girls were known as “Korea’s Little Sisters”, but this maturation proves that the quintet has done quite a bit of growing up over the course of a hiatus that seems to have been well worth the wait. After introducing the retro trend to the k-pop scene years back, the ladies are ready to dominate with an edgy rocker-chic concept that fans new and old will be sure to love.
JYP Entertainment stated, “The teaser photo revealed today is a teaser photo for Wonder Girls’ second official album, and contains the image of Wonder Girls who have perfectly completed the preparations to greet fans in Korea.” They added, “We ask for your continuous interest and love.”
Even if you weren’t a Wonder Girls fan before, this is definitely a video teaser you don’t want to miss. Check it out below!
The song is especially meaningful in that not only is it composed by Brave Brothers and sung by SISTAR, but it’s also written with contributions from users of the Samsung Mobile Shop Facebook in celebration of its opening.
Fans were able to contribute lines for the lyrics over the course of 15 days. The powerful beat and fun rhythm is enough to make anyone get out of their seats and dance.
The MV basically follows the girls around as they record the track in the studio, check out the MV below!
Although it was announced earlier that the show would be titled, ‘My Pet’, the name has since been changed to ‘Birth of a Family’.
The new show will document various idol groups taking care of abandoned animals for 8 weeks or so – until the animal is adopted by a new family. In addition, the show will also feature rare animals that are not commonly seen in the company of people. The show hopes to raise awareness about issues involving animal neglect. It hopes that by bringing in celebrities on the show to care after these animals, they may help increase awareness and capture the hearts of citizens. As the celebrities laugh and cry raising these animals, the show hopes to inspire citizens to take a deeper interest in abandoned and homeless animals.
MBLAQ and APink were announced as the first idol groups up to take part in the upcoming show. However, due to scheduling issues, MBLAQ has now been replaced by INFINITE.
INFINITE and APink will become the first idol groups to participate in the show emceed by Boom, Lee Hui Jae, and Kim Byung Man. The first day of filming will start on November 1st, and the first episode will air on November 12th.
The photos released in this teaser are much different from the concept photos of the ladies fourth official album, ‘Sixth Sense‘, which was released on September 23rd. If the ‘Sixth Sense’ album’s concept was dark and intense, the photos this time around give off a much more bright and feminine vibe with vivid, colorful eye makeup and lipstick.
Their agency stated, “Despite the two year hiatus, for all the love people have shown the 4th album, this special repackaged album was prepared to express our gratitude for our fans in Korea, as well as overseas… Through the special edition album, we plan to reveal pictures of Brown Eyed Girls that have never been revealed before.”
The repackaged album will be released on November 4th with the original songs included in the ‘Sixth Sense’ album as well as one new title track (a ballad), a film of making of the music video, and a special photospread calendar, and a ‘Thanks to’ written by the members.
5dolls’ Hyewon revealed, “When ‘Co-Ed’ was first created, plans for unit promotions were already being made. There won’t be a disbandment of Co-Ed. Just like how the girls are getting their own unit, the boys will be making their unit as well and are currently preparing for it.”
Fans have been waiting a long time for an update, and on November 1st, Kim Jungwoo finally delivered one through Twitter.
The idol stated, “The Male unit will be early next year.. It’ll be hard [to debut] this yearㅠㅠ We’ll practice a lot~”
He also expressed some of his worries, as he wrote, “I like practicing right now more so than when we were promoting… I need to practice more in order to make up for anything I’m lacking in… That’s the right thing to do… But I feel a little dreary. I need to work harder to produce a better outcome for the people who are waiting, but my head gets ahead of me and thing aren’t going to way I want it to, so I’m getting stressed out. I should sleep ㅠㅠ Good night everyone~”
