I was really trying to hold out on not posting about these teasers, but Wonder Girls forced my hand by making them so awesome. I was skeptical about the whole band concept since they had given no indication that they could play an instrument before, so I’m glad these teasers were of the instrumental variety and they put aside all my concerns about the band concept.
First up was Sunmi on bass, and basically everything about this worked.
From the tone to the set to her, it worked, but what especially struck me was the use of space and lighting, which just made everything feel that much more important.
Sunmi herself looked sultry and sexy as well.
In the next teaser was Yubin, who is just ridiculous on drums.
Again, the use of the lights is effective and engaging in itself…
…much less with somebody like Yubin looking like Yubin.
When will everybody else recognize that Yubin has one of the best bodies in K-pop and that she is awesome, in general? I guess she’s too tan or whatever bullshit like that. I demand justice.
In any case, my only problem is that the teasers were too effective and now I can’t wait, and inevitably I can’t imagine any song — by what is essentially a rookie band — living up to the hype. Though I suppose of all the problems to have, that’s a good one.
