Who are the WONDER GIRLS?
The Wonder Girls are a really popular female group in South Korea. There are 5 members and they are:
Yenny (Ye Eun)
Mimi (Sun Mi)
Sun (Sun Ye)
So far, they have released 4 albums and three songs have been enormously popular.
First of all, the most successful song is 'Tell Me' in 2007.
'Tell Me' Music Video:
This song was sampled from Stacey Q's Two of Hearts. During the time when they performed 'Tell Me', there was a big wave of UCC (User Created Contents). Thousands of people put up videos of themselves dancing to 'Tell Me' choreography. Some of them got really popular and actually performed on various TV stations. This video below is one of my favorites.

After this hit song 'Tell Me', they came out with another hit song 'So Hot' in Summer 2008.
