A South Korean girl pop group under the watchful eye of Park Jin-Young and JYP Entertainment, the Wonder Girls were popular and prone to bouts of bad luck, to put it mildly. Their first appearance, on a Korean pop music television show in February of 2007, was followed by the mini-album The Wonder Begins (which was released a few days later). Before the group could get rolling on their debut album, however, a series of events occurred that threatened to derail them. First, Ahn So Hee was injured in an accident during a video shoot, then Kim Hyun A was pulled from the group by her parents out of concern for her health -- she was later replaced by Kim Yoo Bin. Finally, the entire band was injured in a van accident whilst returning from a gig. In September of 2007, the group was finally able to release that debut full length, The Wonder Years. The lead single, "Tell Me," was a hit, and the group made appearances in China and the United States. ~ Chris TruePortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
