Wonder Girls Wonder World Tour Singapore
The Wonder Girls' Wonder World Tour was amazing! I have always wanted to go for their solo concerts, but it seems so impossible cuz I can't go to those overseas, and the chances of them having a solo concert here in Singapore is pretty small.... But guess what, the opportunity came and I got to watch the concert! Feeling extremely thankful and happy because my exams start 2 days later, so it's not very wise for me to go for a concert. But still, I couldnt miss this opportunity. Having not seen them on our shores for 2 years; and I've been waiting for the day I can go to their solo concert for more than 3 years! Although I havent gotten the chance to hold the WG lightstick be proclaim that I've been part of the Pearl Burgundy sea (oh organizers, why couldnt you bring in the concert merchandise?), it just feels really great to watch them perform live!
Show started off with JJ Project - Jr and JB! JB's my favourite because I think he's quite good looking, and his smile is so charming. Jr has this really impish character. They performed Bounce and Hooked (꽂혔어), and I'm surprised that I could fanchant Bounce even though I only watched the videos a few times, haha! There were a few moments where I had eye contact with JB (fangirl squeal), and there was this funny moment where his bling swung too far back cuz he was jumping about, and it kinda choked his neck so he was trying to grab it, haha!
Wonder Girls appeared with Like This! Everybody, are you ready to party? HELL YEAHHHHH! Then was Nu Shoes, which was quite a pity that I was unable to see their LED-lit shoes because I was sitting at the 4th row, so I couldnt see their feet except when they lifted it up! Sweet Dreams is one of my favourite songs, so I really loved it! Yeeun was such a goddess when the backup male dancers lifted her up! The DJ Is Mine was nice as expected, hehe! They introduced themselves, like the usual stuff. One of them talked about the mainly-female crowd, then Yubin flirted with the guys by saying that there's cute guys in the audience too, haha! I sang along during Girls Girls, which was fantastic! This Fool (이바보) was good too, because it's such an old song but yet they still do it during concerts :)
Love this MinAhn photo! Reminds me of 2PM's Hands Up "오빠 믿어도 되지 OK?" &Sunye is licking her lips mmmmmm.
They played a VCR containing Yeeun's childhood till now photos! Initially I thought it was going to be of all the members, but it turned out to only be hers. So she did her solo of Hello To Myself, which was reaaally powerful! The speakers were too loud so at some parts it was quite painful to hear, but that's a good thing because it meant that her voice is "big", haha! I was also quite worried that her voice might break during the higher notes, but thankfully all went well! :) Me, In was good, because I love the whole guitar choreography thing! I particularly noticed Sunye, because she always puts down her guitar last cuz of her lines, so yeah I just kept looking at her! Her charisma was totally overflowing and she has really great stage presence. Clapped my hands along during the ending, following the girls' lead.
Yubin did her solo of So Hot, which I found really amazing because she rocked the entire song, all by herself! I was really taking note and absorbing her low, husky voice ;) The rest of the girls then came on stage, dressed in black tight-fitting clothes. Yeeun&Yubin then proceeded to flirt with each other, there was just so much YeBin in this concert!
They asked the audience for what ballads we wanted to hear, and so they sang small snippets of A Sorry Heart (미안한 마음), I Tried, and Wishing On A Star. Dugo Dugo was next, and instead of being a Yeeun-Sunye duet as the original song it, all 5 of them sang it! It was refreshing to hear all 5 voices try out this ballad. Last ballad was Girlfriend, which Yeeun wrote! They danced with the male dancers, and it was a really beautiful and slow dance performance.
Sunye's solo of miss A's Touch was great! As she was playing the keyboards, I couldnt really see the main stage so I had to look at the big screen instead. Everyone, including me, kept chanting her name. It was one of the rare times when the fanchants were united, lol. The camera focused on just her head, so I was just staring at her, wondering to myself how can anyone be so perfect... For the faster part of the song, she danced together with some backup dancers and it was so sexy! ;)
Next VCR, was the one featuring Nichkhun, JYP, JJ Project and San E - for Lim's Act Cool! Since San E wasn't here, JJP did the male raps for her! It was pretty cool, and I love how Lim can be so cute and adorable, but yet still rap so well! They even had this Titanic move, and both boys took turns to do it with her! This was at the extended stage, so I had a really good view of it, yay!
Girls then came out in the SIA Stewardess Kebayas for R.E.A.L.! So this was the surprise that they were talking about! Since Sg has no national costume, and they probably didnt want to bring their fairytale character costumes which they wore for the Seoul concert, I guess they decided on the SIA costume, which I think is really beautiful, plus it really accentuated their features! Sohee came out first at the side closer to me, so I kept looking at her, hehe. Gotta say that Yubin looks the best in it, because she has a really good figure! *-* Lim has been receiving flak for the fact that her top was unbuttoned, but come on, she had the least time to change so it was probably a mishap! They threw sweets instead of fruits, but I didnt manage to catch any :( Be My Baby was next, also in the SIA costumes! I need to re-emphasize the fact that Sohee looks really pretty in the SIA costume, dancing BMB!
Even Sunye's back view looks so good in the kebaya! ;)
They played another VCR, which was just Yubin lazing around, and then there was a texting sequence. Started off with Sunye texting Yubin, so the SunBin fan in me went cray cray and I kept shouting "SUNBIN!!!", only to find out that the other 3 girls were also in the texts, LOL. There was this part where Yubin goes to take a bath, and the crowd went wild when her clothes slid to the ground, hahaha!
Then, all the girls appeared in the pink double-breasted suit! They performed G.N.O, Stop!., Bad Boy, I Wanna. Stop! is one of my favourite songs, so I'm so glad that they performed it! :D I remember one of them (Yeeun? Yubin?) shouted "Wonder Girls shuffling!" and then Bad Boy started and they shuffled, haha! The girls and their backup dancers also danced with poles. Sohee's dance solo (I guess you can call that a solo...) brought up the heat! All her body waves with the pole *-* A really different Sohee from the usual chic quiet girl.
VCR of their achievements till date, and preparation for Like Money was shown. I felt kinda embarassed for Sunye when her ugly wig for Like Money appeared, and was hoping that the audience who dont really know them well wont think that she's "ugly" because of her hair in the MV -.- Like Money was in the silver costumes, which they always wear for LM. Before Sunye had a chance to sing her lines, she suddenly disappeared! I didnt even notice that she was gone until I realised that there were only 4 girls on stage! I started to panic and tears were brimming, because I was so worried about what had happened to her! The people around me were equally shocked but no one knew what had happened! Yeeun took over Sunye's lines in the chorus. Sunye only reappeared towards the end of the song, after Yubin's rap, meaning that she didnt even sing much at all. I stood up and cheered for her when she returned :') Despite her short absence, the other 4 girls still put up a strong performance without any hiccups that would hint of her MIA incident. Then, they said they were going to do their last song, and asked us to guess! Most of us guessed Nobody (because it's the obvious song that they have not performed yet), but then they started to do the famous shoulder dance and sang the tune of Tell Me!
I knew it wasnt going to be the end yet, because how can there not be an encore? So, the girls then reappeared for the encore, dressed in the WG T-shirt with shorts! Yubin's blue starry high-waisted shorts are really pretty, I love it!
Lots of people stood up, and danced with them for Nobody! Afterall, it's a classic, and it really brought KPop to the world, so everyone knew the song and the dance moves! It was really fun, and the girls were just walking around on stage, giving fan service and all! Yeeun, being the fan service queen as usual, even went down to the moshpit! They also threw the WG tshirts to the audience, of which I caught none. I was trying to catch Sunye's attention with my fanboard, but failed to do so :(
Then, they gave their thank you speeches, and then the concert ended for real.
This is their thank you speech, and at 2:24, right after Sunye says "I'm Sun", there's this high-pitched scream. Yes, that was me HAHAHA! Despite my voice being half gone, I mustered all my energy and remaining voice to scream for my girl :D Sunye, did you hear how much I love you?
I kept screaming for Sunye, whenever I could! I remember screaming "Min Sun Ye, I love you!" HAHAHA I hope she heard me :P
It was lucky how my area V4, consisted of so many hardcore fans! We screamed the loudest, we were the first people in the audience to stand up, we were just crazy for the Wonder Girls! So it was really fun that the people in my area was so fun! Also, the 2 seats to my right were both empty, so I kept shifting around to get a better view and to take better photos! Vietnamese Wonderfuls were seated in front of me, and it turned out that one of them is PikeYenny, a famous Wdf who uploads WG videos religiously, and I have also worked with her previously on some WonderSubbers projects!
This whole concert feels really surreal, I still cant really believe that I finally attended a solo Wonder Girls concert! I guess maybe due to the lack of interactions and not receiving any fan service, I'm not suffering from withdrawal symptoms... I really wish that one day, I'll get to meet Sunye up close and talk to her :)

Min's 3rd Twitter reply + Janice's 1st IG reply
Oh well, it seems like Twitter replies I get from famous people are all I blog about nowadaysssss. Just wanna remember them cuz I'm afraid one day Twitter might close down~
First up - Min's reply! This was pretty unexpected cuz they were in Tokyo! So I didnt know that she was gonna check her mentions. Tweeted her a portrait sketch done by the talented guy who draws Kpop idols portraits, Wilmer Tay, and she replied 6 hours later :D
Well, I would probably be happier if I were the one who drew it, but too bad I dont have any talents so....... hahaha.
Next is my first Instagram reply from Janice! :) She's replied me quite a few times on Twitter already, but this is the 1st Instagram one so it's worth archiving it :P Beside quiet waters, there's no place I'd rather be. huixianloves Looks lovely... is it in Australia? Doesn't look like it. \ thejanicelee: @huixianloves yes sydney is beautiful :)
