YesAsia Editorial Description

The Wonder Begins with K-pop's latest girl group Wonder Girls. Though pop groups may seem plentiful in the Korean music scene, the Wonder Girls are almost certainly bound for great things as the members were selected and trained by none other than Rain's producer, Park Jin Young. All five members went through a series of competitive auditions through shows sponsored by SBS or MTV, before making it to JYP. The five girls, aged 15 to 18, are still quite young, but are already showing uncommon talent in their debut single. The Wonder Begin consists of three songs and one remix track, all produced by Park Jin Young. Irony is a catchy, up-tempo hip hop number, while Bad Boy is an innovative electronic R&B song. The girls also show their softer side with the mid-tempo ballad "A Sorry Mind" (Track 3). The Wonder Begins marks a very promising start for K-pop's newest sensation.

Wonder Girls 1sr Single - The wonder begins. JYP엔터테인먼트, 2007년 가요계를 평정할 여성 그룹 데뷔

박진영의 첫 여성그룹 출사표로 기대를 모았던 원더걸스(Wonder Girls)가 드디어 오는 2월 13일 첫 번째 싱글을 발매하고 데뷔한다. 이 여성 5인조 그룹은, 2001년 SBS를 통해 방송된 박진영의 "영재 육성 프로젝트 99%의 도전"을 통해 최종 선발된 민선예를 비롯, 각종 오디션을 통해 선발된 인재들의 조합인 것으로 알려져, 기대치를 증폭시켰었다.

이번 싱글은 박진영이 직접 총 프로듀서를 맡아 작업을 했으며, 특유의 귀에 쏙쏙 감기는 후렴구가 일품인 '아이러니(Irony)' 타이틀 곡을 비롯, 2곡의 댄스 곡과 1곡의 발라드 곡, '아이러니(Irony)' Remix 버전이 담겨 있다. 타이틀 곡 'Irony'는 힙합 리듬 위에 누구나 쉽게 따라 부를 수 있는 중독성 강한 후렴구가 매력적인 곡으로, 크리스 브라운의 'run it'등 빌보드 상위권 곡들을 믹스한 미국의 Brian Stanley가 믹스 작업을 맡아 최상의 사운드를 들려준다. 역동적인 안무와 보컬이 10대 소녀들이라 믿기지 않을 만큼 인상적인 곡이다.

이외에도 일렉트로닉한 사운드가 돋보이는 하우스 장르의 곡으로, 당당하고도 힘있는 보컬을 만나볼 수 있는 곡 'Bad boy' 와 멜로디가 아름다운 R&B곡으로, 한국적인 서정적 멜로디와 강한 힙합 리듬이 조화를 잘 이루고 있는 '미안한 마음' 이 함께 수록되어 있다. 타이틀곡 'Irony'를 강한 빅비트 힙합 리듬으로 새롭게 재해석한 'Irony (Tae Kwon - daybreak Remix)'이 마지막 트랙으로 실려있다.

미안한 마음♥ Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
The Wonder Begins was a great album in my opinion. Wonderfuls especially should get this :)

Irony was definitely a hit, the song was fresh, sexy and catchy at the same time. It also showed the strong and feminine side of Wonder Girls, and I personally think it's perfect for a debut song :). The choreography was quite impressive also.

But I must say I don't really like Bad Boy. The beat was too fast and the melody was kinda cracked up. The girls' vocals was nice but the song in my opinion, was crazy overall. It has Wonder Girls style, but not in good way...

Still, '미안한 마음' was really a beautiful track. The melody was soft and sweet and the girls' vocals really soothe my ears (after listening to Bad Boy *___*). It's a perfect ballad and I totally love it. Wonder Girls always deliver the best ballads in comparison to other Korean idol girlgroups, in my opinion ^^.

The CD packaging was very nice. The booklet was amazing and I personally think the best thing is their outfits. They look so chic and fashionable, but still young and really feminine, just exactly the Wonder Girls that we know! It's also very nice since each girl's clothes resembles herself, Hyuna is sexy with shorts, Sohee is cute with skirt, Sunye is chic with her hat,... I love how JYP gave them the schoolgirl concept, but instead of super short skirts and pairs of puppy eyes, Wonder Girls has a quite rebellous and strong look with ties and long-sleeved shirts. The girls' challenging expressions perfected the image.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the single :)

Good Debut Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
When wonder girls first debut I am not sure if they can do well. But they prove me wrong. Irony is very good, I love the first single. But every time they release it will get better. Their voices are good in this song and they have the old rapper, who is very good also.

Great. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Definitely a must have for all WG fans. It nice to hear what their music was like before the "Tell Me" phase. Irony is one of my all time favourite tracks from the girls.

Also the Photobook is amazing, i spend most of my time flicking through it~

quite refreshing Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
I never liked the girl bands but these 15-18yo girls were picked and trained by Park, Jin-Young, Bi(Rain)'s producer, and they are really hard-working kids just like any entertainers from JYP entertainment.

The song is quite catchy and their "making" movies on youtube show they are here to last for a long time. I hope they are liked in and out of Korea and hope to hear more loaded songs that could appeal to broad audience groups.

Good luck.
