Wonder Girls Comeback Early June in Korea, Blowing Away the Summer Heat

Wonder Girls is planning to make a comeback early June.

According to entertainment industry representatives Wonder Girls is to release a new mini-album as early as the beginning of June. This is rather a relatively quick comeback only after 7 months since the release of their second studio album title track ‘Be My Baby’ released last November. It’s been reported that the majority new album tracks have finished recording except for the title track.

It seems that Wonder Girls will attempt a transformation in their music style in the title track. The girls that became a groundbreaking sensation through their hit songs of ‘Tell Me,’ ‘So Hot,’ ‘Nobody,’ ‘2 Different Tears,’ and ‘Be My Baby’ have sung more of retro melody and addictive tunes is now predicted by music representatives to comeback with a new song that is more intense sounds. It’s reported that the girls are preparing for a more powerful dance song that will blow away the summer heat.

Apart from Korea’s comeback the Wonder Girls preparation for the release of the US album is also moving along smoothly. Recently JYP posted on his Twitter, “Wonder Girls 12 song US album completed. We started to work on producing another Korean album as well,” indicating Wonder Girls imminent comeback.

Something tells me that one or more tracks will be Korean versions of the English songs they have finished, but nonetheless I am surprised and impressed with JYPE for the quick turnaround. Makes up for the 2+ years of not having any new music. Also GNO was fire so I have confidence in WG and dance tracks.

YAY! But can Sun Ye and Ye Eun please sing some verses this time?
uniqlos 4th-May-2012 11:02 am (UTC)
yeah, i know sohee is the ~face~ so she prob sings the most the same reason that siwon opens suju's songs but lawwwwd i couldn't with her two full stanzas in bmb lol. jyp makes it so that for some reason the weaker singers sing the stanzas and idgi. is it because most of his songs have really great choruses so he makes the best singers sing that?
tabi 4th-May-2012 01:33 pm (UTC)
Someone mentioned this before and it's apparently because choruses are the essence of the song, so that's why the better vocalists sing them. Makes sense when you think about it.
soheefan 4th-May-2012 02:13 pm (UTC)
I think most of the WG choruses are great but also hard to sing so he makes Sunye and Ye eun split them. I cant imagine Sohee or Lim doing any of the lead singles choruses. Maybe Sunmi but she's not there anymore so
surisays 4th-May-2012 03:10 pm (UTC)
The choruses are actually really simple, which probably why they are so catchy. Sohee and Lim would be capable of singing at least part of them.
uniqlos 5th-May-2012 01:12 am (UTC)
hm maybe they can just harmonize? or amp up the backing track.
lazmy 5th-May-2012 03:34 am (UTC)
well sohee could have done the "please be my baby please be my baby" and then sunye and yenny would pick it up and mariah carey it out for the rest of the chorus
akaich0u 4th-May-2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
Yeah like soheefan said, it's JYP being obstinate about his original formula for WG. The chorus is the most memorable and repeated part of the song so it goes toward the strongest singers. The verses are the second most dense part of the song so it goes toward the third best singer--Sunmi, previously. Then Sunmi left and JYP tried to get Lim fill the void with the verses (like in 2DT) but since Lim isn't vocally talented or popular enough (fully aware I sound like an ass here, but it's true) they can get away with putting someone else on the verses....namely Sohee who is a lot more popular, even if she doesn't fill the same shoes vocal-wise.

Sometimes I feel bad for WG because they were JYPE's first idol group in this 'new era' and thus were guinea pigs for a lot of stuff. They're also arguably the most successful idol group in JYPE (not at the moment but cumulatively) so at the same time he's less willing to mess with their formula like he does with miss A or 2PM or 2AM. If only he'd snap out of it and realize that the album tracks are also STELLAR and there's a much better distribution of parts there and that could work for title tracks too.
uniqlos 5th-May-2012 01:12 am (UTC)
they should just harmonize the chorus. or amp up the backing truck.
anconeous 4th-May-2012 11:13 am (UTC)
THIS. They should really stop giving the verses to Sohee.
funkaliciousss 4th-May-2012 04:25 pm (UTC)
sohee should just dance her ass off in the middle and not open her mouth at all.
miwa201 4th-May-2012 12:32 pm (UTC)
yep. Sohee can get the bridge.
soheefan 4th-May-2012 02:10 pm (UTC)
On songs on the album, I feel like Sunye and Ye eun sung alot. It was really bmb that they were underused but thats just because JYP usually does the same formula for his lead songs and have Sun and Ye eun do the choruses
surisays 4th-May-2012 03:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah I meant for the lead song. Tbh I'm sick of JYP's "magic formula", but at least he changes things up for Miss A and 2pm.
herro_kitty 4th-May-2012 10:19 am (UTC)
i'm ready
kiminikaeru 4th-May-2012 10:54 am (UTC)

i still can't believe how great their last album was.
rawbabyoctopus 4th-May-2012 11:18 am (UTC)
Wonder World was really an amazing album

asnindie 4th-May-2012 11:37 am (UTC)
Can't wait, their last album was fantastic. Pls less Sohee singing though.
gathyou 4th-May-2012 11:53 am (UTC)
WonderWorld was so fucking amazing I can't wait for them to come back ! And wooow that's really fast. Thank JYP for moving from two years silence to this new program... I like :)
miwa201 4th-May-2012 12:34 pm (UTC)
I can't wait, WW was amazing. And yes to all the people who said less Sohee. And hopefully Yubin's raps will be better.
funkaliciousss 4th-May-2012 04:26 pm (UTC)
omg ikr. yubin is a good rapper that BMB rap was LAME.
tabi 4th-May-2012 01:26 pm (UTC)
About time. Just stay in Korea and rebuild your #1 status, then maybe you can try the US market again.

Obligatory "less Sohee". More Yoobin and Hyerim please and thank you. And yes to a Korean concert even though I won't be able to watch it at all.
blkjck 4th-May-2012 02:13 pm (UTC)
hope it's as good as wonder world one of the greatest albums of all time

I still kindof wished they made Me, In a music video with more perfs than that tragic one they did at gayo daejun.
soheefan 4th-May-2012 02:19 pm (UTC)
I still listen to tracks on Wonder World daily (Stop, GNO, Nu Shoess) so I am excited about this one. Never been disappointed by them yet and I cannot wait for some fan cams from their Korean concert. I need Nu shoes to be performed so I can see Sohee sing a chorus
yasmine2009 4th-May-2012 02:27 pm (UTC)
Hellz yes! I'm listening to Wonder World right now. And I better get my US albums soon. Been waiting since freaking '09! Happy I didn't preorder that damn CD.
domokuniscute 4th-May-2012 02:44 pm (UTC)
I hope it's not a generic JYP song. the concert is quite confirmed but not the korean album cos the US one is dropping first. WF cafe @ fb just updated that.

I want ahnbb to have a dance break or subrap and maybe new hair. parkoppa with red hair, minleadah short/eebabo hair and adlibs, more yub raps.
akaich0u 4th-May-2012 10:00 pm (UTC)
IA w/ this entire comment. I loved the hair Sunye had for the 2010 tour though so that hair would be good too.
domokuniscute 5th-May-2012 03:44 pm (UTC)
That was fab too, and so hot hair I almost forgot, just none of that random curl crap. Can't wait for my bbgirls to comeback :')
soheefan 5th-May-2012 12:41 am (UTC)
Oh man I miss me some Sohee dance breaks. I still hope she will do a Tell Me dance break just for old times sake. She's such a good dancer and no one really knows it
domokuniscute 5th-May-2012 03:43 pm (UTC)
I do too :'( I get annoyed when people think she's just some act cute useless face of the group, when she is clearly not and doesn't try to be. Needs to use the 'lead dancer' title a bit more bb can do so much more hardcore stuff.

kiminikaeru 4th-May-2012 04:31 pm (UTC)
soheefan 5th-May-2012 12:42 am (UTC)
GNO is perfect to me. Especially Sunye's riffs at the end and Yubin and Lim's rap part
funkaliciousss 4th-May-2012 04:27 pm (UTC)
