On the night of Friday, January 20th, the much anticipated premiere of the Wonder Girls’ self-titled movie was held at the CGV Cinemas along with the debut of their 3-D video for their new single “The DJ is Mine.” Before I even arrived to work the red carpet, screaming fans were already gathered by the cinema waiting for their idols Yenny, Yubin, Sun, Sohee and Lim. First to step onto the red carpet though was the School Gyrls, followed by Booboo and Fivel Stewart, Wes Aderhold, J.Y. Park, Nick Cannon and more. As the Wonder Girls made their appearance, every minute you would hear screams of “I love you _____ (insert one or more of the girls’ names here)!”
I got a chance to ask the girls a few quick questions about the TeenNick project and how it’s been entering the US market.
Audrey Magazine: What got you into exploring your acting skills?
Lim: Well well… (looks at her band mates for help). We were just always interested in acting!
AM: How has it been working on this project?
Lim: We’re really happy that we got to act together – all five of us.
Yenny: It was really fun! We played ourselves so we got to know ourselves more since we had to like… kind of investigate ourselves. [In the movie] we had to fight and put on a performance, so it’s been fun.
AM: But the rivalry only occurs in the movie, right? In reality you’re actually all good friends?
Yenny: Yeah we are like a family.
AM: How has it been trying to enter the US market?
Yenny: It’s been good so far because our American fans have all been so nice and accepting of our music.
“The Wonder Girls” follows the K-pop girl band in a talent competition against the School Gyrls. In the movie, you will get to see the girls fight, put on some amazing performances and even engage in a little romance. Executive Producers Nick Cannon and J.Y. Park also make an appearance in the movie. Catch it on Monday, February 20th on TeenNick.
