Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, our second for July 2016.
There have been a few interesting new KPOP releases over the past few weeks, however we’ve chosen the new release from girl group Wonder Girls. The song is titled “Why So Lonely” and it was released on YouTube on Monday July 4th, in that short time it’s been viewed around 4million times on the JYPEntertainment YouTube Channel. Here are our reasons for choosing “Why So Lonely” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song has a cool almost reggae vibe to it, very relax summer feel. Mixed in with the Wonder Girls sound you’re used to.
  • Secondly the video features a strange storyline which is interesting and engrossing at the same time.
  • Finally Wonder Girls have been around for closing on 10 years now, they’ve stood the test of time. They’re still popular and it’s great to see more longevity in the KPOP industry.
  • On the negative side; its a little dull vs. other recent releases.Wonder Girls Why So Lonely (8)
