These days, it seems like everyone has become familiar with the South Korean girl band “Wonder Girls”. Their debut happened about the time I began listening to K-pop, so they’ve been a mainstay of my Korean musical selection since the beginning. There is just something fun and catchy about their songs, I can’t be ashamed to admit I listen to them a lot (they’re topping my last.fm charts).

What you might not know is that the Wonder Girls are currently touring North America, opening for the Jonas Brothers. Last month, they were featured on FOX’s Wendy William’s show singing their English version of “Nobody”. According to their website, they’ve been doing numerous promotions, even attending the Teen Choice Awards. It is certainly going to be interesting to watch them try and break into the American market. They’re not the first Asian artists to try, but their fans seem to be really behind them (on the official site is a link to a poll for “Artist of the Month – September” and they’re winning with 89% of the votes currently).

If you’re looking to try them out for the first time, I recommend the music video for their song “Nobody” (English or Korean version). It’s slightly comical, but also pulls in the “Mo-town” influence they were going for. My personal favourite song choices are “So Hot” and “Saying I Love You”.
