The Wonder Girls, South Korea’s pop sensation now active in the United States, Monday made a successful appearance at the U.S. TV talk show with its hit song “Nobody.”
The five-member girl band sang the song in English at the daytime Wendy Williams Show in New York and drew a standing ovation. The members enthralled the spectators by wearing the same clothes they used to do in South Korea. The producers also created a stage similar to that from the music video of “Nobody.”
The Web site of the talk show was plastered with postings usually praising the Wonder Girls’ performance. One of the postings said, “ I love the Wonder Girls! Thanks Wendy for having them on your show. I love you and the wonder girls. I love watching your show and I also hope everyone will support the Wonder Girls debut in America.”
Park Jin-young, CEO of JYP Entertainment, the group’s agency, was quoted as saying, “They killed it! They always deliver in crunch time.”
Other hit songs of the Wonder Girls include “Tell Me” and “So Hot.” The five members are Sun, Yenny, Mimi, Sohee and Yubin.
The Wendy Williams Show was created by Emmy Award-winning producer Rob Dauber and made its debut on July 13, 2009, covering celebrity interviews, cooking segments and the latest beauty and fashion trends. (Korea Times)
