We all know that Wonder Girl’s “Nobody” is a big hit in Korea and all around Asia. JYP is even starting to promote the song in America too. Personally, I love the song and all the remixes by the Wonder Girls so why, Why, WHY?! does the Cambodian group RHM have to ruin the song for me?

RHM is getting a lot of flack for stealing the choreography and style of both “Tell Me” and “Nobody.” JYP Entertainment along with Sony BMG will be looking into the case and most likely take them to court.

From RHM’s crappy imitation of the dance to the horrible singing voices, RHM has just ruined my day.

Tsunku, one the most prestigious producers in Japan, has been getting a lot of attention for his interest in Wonder Girls, SNSD, and Kara.

Tsunku had a news conference on the ninth at the Intercontinental Hotel Allegro Hall about the first ever Korea-Japan joint audition project called “Meet Tokyo Girl”.

Tsunku who is the producer for the whole Hello Project artists, including Morning Musume, has been praised highly for his producing ability, thus giving him the authority for the final decision of this audition. Leaders of top Japanese girl groups, Saki Shimizu from Berryz Kobo, and Maimi Yajima from C_ute, also attended the news conference with Tsunku.

On this day, Tsunku said, “I think that the level of Korean music industry is very high. I was not able to access the Korean Music industry easily before. I just recently got familiar with the Korean Industry as the exchange of the entertainment goods is getting more settled in.”

He also added, “I realized that if I don’t try harder, than the Korean music Industry will take over the Japanese music industry. I want to bring Wonder Girls, SNSD, and Kara into my own company, as well as Kangta from H.O.T.”

“Meet Tokyo Girl” is a joint project between Up-Front Entertainment and Mnet Media, in which they will choose a Korean member through open auditions. Starting from the coming 10th to the 19th of April, Tsunku will be choosing the 10 finalists. After the audition, these 10 members will go through an intense training for 8 weeks, and at the end, only one will be chosen to become a trainee for Hello Project. The winner will then go to Japan, and take all the steps that a normal Japanese entertainer would take to debut in Japan.

In this year’s concert, Park Jin Young is bringing his JYP-USA team who is set for debut such as J Lim (제이림), G-Seoul (지소울), and others who are currently receiving much attention from outside of Korea such as Wonder Girls and 2PM as guests.

One representative of JYP said “The organization and plot of the concert has been upgraded along with much anticipation to be received, even more than the first tour of Park Jin Young’s ‘Bad Party 2,’ complete with a plot, structure, and organization” and also “This concert is special because not only is it the JYP-USA team that will be performing, but other artists such as Wonder Girls and 2PM who will bring an amazing performance.”

Also said by one of the sponsors of the concert ‘Good Concert’ was that “This performance is yet again special because due to 2PM’s appearance, many from South East Asia have been giving calls for concerts to be held there also.”

WonderGirls who are currently discussing their plans in America, attended the The  Worlds on Fire exhibition hosted by The exhibition showcased today’s modern artist’s portraits of some of the Grammy nominees. Since many of the works were a wild range of artistic talent, having the girls dress in 60s retro outfits remeniscing of that period’s art deco fad seems fitting.

The girls definitely stood out and that’s good thing given how JYP is trying to have them network. A lot of famous people there and I’m sure they noticed and asked about Wonder

Girls. And for those who patiently struck up conversation with them, I’m sure they were delightfully impressed.
