Korea's leading girl group the Wonder Girls recently released their single "Nobody" in the Chinese-speaking world.
The song ranked at the top of the J-Pop/K-Pop chart at music website KKBOX, a leading music portal for the greater Chinese market. It also topped Taiwan's mobile music charts including those of three major Taiwanese mobile operators -- Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile and FETnet.
Even before the group made its debut there, Chinese media created much hype, reporting that it would release a Chinese version of "Nobody" as well. In fact, the group had planned to release the version in February but postponed the plan indefinitely because of the departure of member Sunmi.
The Wonder Girls last week visited China to promote a Chinese commercial that they will appear in, and are scheduled to perform at the opening of Justin Bieber's concert at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Saturday. They are also planning to work on an album for the U.S. market.
