We’ve had a slew of bad news involving the 2nd generation K-pop idol groups (read: the departure of Hyunseung, Minzy, Jessica, and disbandment of 4MINUTE), but if anything, Wonder Girls have showed us that it’s possible for our favourite groups to stand up against adversity.
With former leader Sunye and member Sohee leaving the group, many speculated that the group would be disbanded. But after a hiatus of 3 years, Wonder Girls not only made a splash in the K-pop music scene with their comeback track “I Feel You” in August 2015, but is currently gearing up for another comeback with “Why So Lonely”.
A few psychedelic and trippy teaser photos were released by JYP Entertainment, and it features the girls surrounded by a lush green background and holding blooming flowers. We have a feeling the upcoming comeback would be retro-themed, which is Wonder Girls’ signature concept.
The flowery teaser images are not the only thing hyping up fans, as a “schedule announcement” was released on Tuesday (21st June), announcing the arrival of more teaser images on 27th June (Monday) and 29th June (Wednesday), with a music video teaser on 1st July (Friday). Looks like we have much to look forward to before the official music video drops on 5th July!
Even after the release of the music video, there’s still another gift for fans: the dance practice video! The girl group will also be meeting fans on a V App live broadcast on 4th July to premiere their upcoming album.
It seems like Wonder Girls are spoiling their fans, but with Wonderfuls’ loyalty after all these years, we can see why the girls love their fans so much!
UPDATE (29th June, 2:55pm):
In anticipation of Wonder Girls’ summer comeback, JYP Entertainment has released 4 more teaser images for the girls’ upcoming album, “Why So Lonely”. The photos show the girls dressed in 70s bell-bottom jeans and colourful dresses.
Check them out in the gallery below:
However, this comeback is not without its setback, as one of the tracks titled “Sweet and Easy” has been deemed inappropriate for broadcast by KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) as it mentions the name of a brand.
Don’t worry though, Wonder Girls will be allowed to perform the other tracks on Korean television, so look forward to their performances on music shows! ;)
