2012 is the year for all you K-Pop fans and that is the gospel. Not only is one of the world’s biggest K-Pop groups making their way over to our shores for the first time, now we hear that another one’s well on their way too.

C’mon. You know ’em dance moves by heart by now, right? And yes, it’s the Wonder Girls!
The South Korean girl group whose hit single you just heard/watched made it into charts around the world when it was released in 2008. In fact, it did so well that by late 2009, “Nobody” charted at #76 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making the Wonder Girls the first South Korean group to enter the chart.
Ironically, the meaning behind the group’s name came from the idea that they are “the girls who can amaze the world“. Boy did they live up to that expectation – and more!
2009 also marked another Wonder Girls milestone as they began their entry into the American market as an opening act for The Jonas Brothers’ World Tour, where they performed the English version of “Nobody”. In 2010, they snagged an opening act gig for Justin Bieber’s Valentine’s Day Concert.
More recently, the five girls, Sun (선예), Yenny (예은), Yubin (유빈), Sohee (소희), and Lim (혜림), collaborated with American R&B and hip hop artist Akon for “Like Money“:

Or at least for the second time around. Has it really been two years since we last saw them during their first concert here?
