Wondergirls to Make US Debut


South Korea's top female pop group Wondergirls will make their debut in the United States this summer, releasing an album in English and joining U.S. idol group Jonas Brothers on a concert tour, according to JYP Entertainment, one of South Korea’s leading agencies Friday.

The all-girl band recently signed a management contract with the Jonas Group and Hollywood's Creative Artists Agency (CAA) will be working as the band’s agent, JYP said.

Wondergirls will debut with an English version of ``Nobody,’’ its big hit in South Korea last summer. The five-member group’s first U.S. album will also feature English versions of other hit songs including ``Tell me’’ and an electronic house song written and composed by the Jonas Brothers.

Wondergirls will tour with the U.S. band as the opening act in concerts throughout Portland, Los Angeles and Atlanta beginning June 27 through August.

A JYP official said the retro mood of ``Nobody’’ appealed to the American musicians to a large extent.
