In a recent article on the Billboard website, the Wonder Girls were praised for their popularity, their ability to push Big Bang out of the #1 Spot on the Billboard ‘Kpop Hot 100 Chart’ and that their ‘sensual’ track “Girlfriend” landed #26 on the chart. Their latest hit “Like This” was even compared to “an updated version of Beyonce’s ‘Get Me Bodied.’”
“Wonder Girls have truly proven what a force they are in K-Pop with their latest “Wonder Party” EP. After a lengthy period spent touring and learning English in America, the group made their comeback in late 2011 with the former K-Pop Hot 100 No. 1 “Be My Baby.” While there was a ton of hype for them to come back to South Korea, could they do it again so soon?
Despite big competition from other popular groups like Big Bang, IU, and f(x), it turns out they could with the fivesome earning another No. 1 on this week’s K-Pop Hot 100 chart with new single “Like This” pushing BIGBANG from the top. With synthetic handclaps and vocal chants, the track can be likened as an updated version of Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied.”
