Wonder Girls Get Exposure

Well, well, well, it looks like the Wonder Girls have already gotten some exposure in the U.S. before their tour with the Jonas Brothers kicked off. The Seattle Times has written an article about the Wonder Girls on their website. Whether it was in print or not, I don't know, because I don't get the Seattle Times. BUT--it was featured in the "Music and Nightlife" section of the Seattle Times website. It's pretty good exposure, and even if many people don't read the post, at least their name has gotten out there.

And apparently, they've decided to sex-down for this tour. Take a look at this quote from the article:

"And unlike racy American girl groups such as the Pussycat Dolls, the Wonder Girls are much tamer, with '60s-style matching clothes and hairstyles."

And check out this quote from Yenny:

"Asians like more cute and pretty girls, they're more like conservative. Americans like more sexy and funky, like Lady GaGa."

Hopefully the Girls won't be like Lady GaGa who did those poses on the cover of Rolling Stones. But it seems like the Girls are going to keep their act tame...probably only for the length of the tour, I suppose.

On a completely unrelated note...

Rain was on CNN! =) He was on their explaining about how Michael Jackson influenced his music and his dancing style. "He was my idol," Rain had said. Wow. Poor Rain--his idol died on his 27th birthday. =(

Cute layout!

The person who compared them to the Pussycat Dolls needs to be smacked. The Wonder Girls are teenagers! Not 20+ women who CAN sex it up.

Yeah, the Seattle Times also did bits (before this) about Se7en and BoA.

Poor Rain :/

At least the Seattle Times is bothering to feature undiscovered artists. =)

Then again, Miley Cyrus is a teenager, too (probably a little younger than SoHee) and she's not afraid of wearing a super-short cocktail dress to the premiere of her movie. So maybe the writer was gathering information about that, and was too scared to put Miley Cyrus? =D

I know, poor Rain! D= :i: I think he needs a hug.
