[NEWS] Wonder Girls Given Tour Offer

This is a wgjjang exclusive. Please do not post elsewhere.

Mostly Bi (a.k.a Rain or Jeong JiHoon) fans populated the Hawaii courtroom on Monday, March 16, 2009, which is why this little Wonder Girls-related tidbit got lost in the hype of the court trial.

Luckily, a good Bi-fan friend passed me on the news for this wgjjang exclusive. Here’s a hint as to what it was:

Wonder Girls & Jonas Brothers

According to JYPE’s vice president and chief financial officer, Byeon SangBong, the Wonder Girls are a highly successful five-member girl group in South Korea. They recently had a great concert in Thailand, and also held three more concerts in the United States.

The success of the U.S. concert tour was so great that JYPE received an offer from the popular Disney-sponsored U.S. group Jonas Brothers to tour with them.

It was not explained as to who made the offer or how official the offer was (made in passing? phone call? contract offered?), but JYPE’s CFO Byeon said that there was an offer.

I waited a whole week before posting this because I wanted to make sure that no one else had the news. What do you think? According to my friend, it sounded like Byeon was saying that how successful the WG U.S. concerts were could be judged by this Jonas Brothers offer. It would be an interesting concert… I’m not a huge Jonas Brothers fan, but to see the Wonder Girls? I’d risk the teeny-bopper crowds.

I’ll be posting all week while I’m recovering from Spring Break. Haha! Next up is a little more WG news relating to their training lives that was revealed in Bi’s court trial. I’m encoding all my subbed videos now while I do some cleaning up today.

  4. 4 RIA March 23, 2009 at 5:59 am

    OMFG! your back Kay!
    im sure you dont know me but i followed you @_@ yes i lurked……

    thank you for the news and yeah… im not really a Jonas fan… but theyre image and WG image is like eh….

  5. 5 pie March 23, 2009 at 6:03 am

    JYP mentioned during the US concert that WG was going to open for a #1 artist… I must admit I was hoping for someone different than Jonas Brothers so that they would get a more diverse base of exposure.

    However, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t go… I’ll just leave early after WG and stalk the backdoor or something 😉

  6. 6 RIA March 23, 2009 at 6:03 am

    i meant as in together it just doesnt match it >_<

  7. 7 breezy March 23, 2009 at 7:27 am

    great news…though not a fan of jo brothers (omg~~)…that’s a great crowd for them …that’s where the money is at, disney.

  8. 8 GiGi March 23, 2009 at 10:33 am

    I’m not a fan of the JoBros either, but think of the exposure they’ll get! Wonder Girls music is catchy and quite poppy so it seems like the perfect music for the Jonas Brothers’ audience (ie. preteenage girls).

    This could help their American debut a lot!

  9. 9 juicebox March 23, 2009 at 10:39 am

    woah. as much… as I’m not a fan of the jonas brothers, if the Wonder Girls got Disney’d… that would be fantastic for the merge into the American market. Oi. maybe this means i’m going to end up a a JonasBros fan.

    by the way, Kay, i am WOW’d. hahahahaha… /hide.

  10. 10 juicebox March 23, 2009 at 10:53 am

    Oh wait. If this goes down…. Korean Pop Princesses? hehehe.
    As much as Disney would aid them in getting popular in America, I kind of hope… Disney doesn’t work its way into being their label in America (…does JYPE cover the US market too?). I’d rather not see them get bashed on by the folks who bash Disneystuff (primarily music artists, i’d say).

    still WOW’d.

  11. 11 anonymousxgook March 23, 2009 at 10:59 am

    wow , this is amazing , hope the news spread around in korea !

  12. 12 kjpop March 23, 2009 at 11:25 am

    THAT WOULD BE EPIC

    LOL

    Even if I dont like the jonas brothers and I think tickets would be impossible to get, I would risk leg and limb to go XD

  13. 13 krysti March 23, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    This is great news. I mean come on, its the Jonas Brothers? Even though I don’t like them, they’re popular by many teenage-girls in the US. And if WGs is touring with them..OMG; this is great opportunity to share their fame to the world. More exposure to the Wonder Girls. I’m so happy to hear about this offer. JYP you better take this chance. This is the way it is done. OMG! Gotta TELL Everybody! YEAH! OHMYGOODESS! Thank you so much!

  14. 14 jhyekyo March 23, 2009 at 12:36 pm

    HAHA whoaaa !!!
    jonas brothers is so big that they actually made a movie,
    and getting an offer is like YEEE~
    wonder girls is gonna dominate the us market soon since they already own asia. ^^

  15. 15 wgjjang March 23, 2009 at 3:05 pm

    thanks everyone for the welcome! ^__^

    i agree with a lot of you about this deal… in the end, i think it could be good for the wonder girls as the exposure would be HUGE.

    i’m not sure if i’m back for good or not. will have to see after a couple of weeks. but there will more tomorrow~!

  16. 16 fkgor March 23, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    Welcome back!!

    that would be a great opportunity for WGs to get into US market..JoBro no comment and not interested but at least i know their popularity in US and that would make WGs recognize by people over the world..DISNEY..thats awesome!!…

  17. 17 wgchristine March 23, 2009 at 6:06 pm

  22. 22 mikka March 24, 2009 at 6:11 am

    UGH i dont like the jonas brothers. when jyp was talking about them opening for a #1 US artist, i was thinking about r&b or just someone who had more of a status in the music industry. well if thats the path they are going to take, i ll still support them no matter what! yay for wonder girls if its true

  23. 23 nae March 24, 2009 at 11:25 am

    nick jonas has same age with MiSo. right??
    He would better not touch our babies.

  24. 24 Kari March 24, 2009 at 12:27 pm

    This is so freaking exciting!!! XD

  25. 25 sunmikiwangjang March 24, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    Wow I am so excited. I think they should totally accept the offer.

  26. 26 breezy March 24, 2009 at 2:42 pm

    yaahhhh… those Jonas bros better stay away from Miso =.=
    hahahah… whitney, i miss you girl .. sigh

  27. 27 nhinaa March 24, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    GO WONDER GIRLS ^_^

    I’d love to go to the concert!
    Although I’m not so much of a fan of the Jonas Bros.

  28. 28 angelkamille March 24, 2009 at 8:12 pm

  29. 29 Meme March 24, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonas_Brothers_Tours#Jonas_Brothers_World_Tour_2009
    I don’t know which one the tours that our girls had offered..

  30. 30 Hong March 25, 2009 at 5:28 am

    i like only kevin in JB so i don’t know what to think about this. I was actually thinking of someone else but i hope that it also just an offer & not wanting to sign the girls to disney label. I mean aren;t the girls after more of a mature fans?

  31. 31 meteorstarbb829 March 26, 2009 at 8:03 am

    HOHOOOO. great chance for me to see them for the second time xDD im so going with my friend HAHAHA. even though i don’t like the jonas brothers. im just going to see the opening TEHAHHEHE.

  32. 32 sharon March 26, 2009 at 11:26 am

    I don’t know a single jonas brothers’ song but this is great news! I have not been unaffected by the deluge of jobros in the media, and if WG is attached to them that would be really great for their step into the US market =) =)
    thanks for this news and welcome back, like everyone’s said 😉

  33. 33 BabyV March 26, 2009 at 2:10 pm

    Where you got this news??
    Are you sure??
    When??
    I hope this is true and Wonder Girls gonna be Hit in US (Sorry for my bad english)

  34. 34 Nepurr April 14, 2009 at 7:21 pm

    Holy freaking cow man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the Jonas Brothers!!! and I think the girls could learn a lot about stage presence and charisma from these three!

    Oh congrats Wonder Girls!!!!

  35. 35 Hellojeffy April 17, 2009 at 8:44 am

    I think I will go emo if the Wonder Girls toured with the Jonas Brothers.

    But I agree, it is huge publicity, like HUGE. But looking at the majority of Wonderful’s ages I don’t think Jonas Brothers would be the best crowd to show their music too though, the audience of the Jonas Brothers seems to be middle school girls…and most Wonderfuls seem to be 17+. I’d still go to the concerts only for the Wonder Girls. I was hoping for another pop artist though…

    Yeah Jonas Brothers better stay away from girls…or lots of Wonderfuls will be mad. lol.

  36. 36 heartfacee April 22, 2009 at 11:00 am

    i love the jonas brothers lol
    and this is reallllyyyy freaky
    because i was thinking about them touring for the longest time
    although, this probably isn’t true since
    jordin sparks and honor society are opening for them…
    but if this were true, i would DIE

  37. 37 Mina April 30, 2009 at 1:59 am

    The jonas brothers are alrights, their fans are a bit on the younger side but they do have teen-younger adult fans also just like wonder girls. I don’t want them to go on tour, I feel like they would be neglecting their korean fans =/ but I mean it would be great…I would miss them though 😦

  38. 38 zhey June 5, 2009 at 1:24 am

    OMGGGG! They are the BOMMMMB! OMG! I hope this is true! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Im dying! LOL

  39. 39 sarangkpop June 5, 2009 at 9:24 am

    OMG!! YAY It’s TRUUU!!

    ALLKPOP Has confirmend it!

  40. 40 Romeopinoy June 6, 2009 at 7:04 am

    Why the Jonas Brothers? I love WG, but I’m not buy a ticket for the Jonas Brothers concert. It would make more sense to tour with BoA.

  41. 41 juicebox June 12, 2009 at 11:34 pm

    kay is win for reporting this before it was officiaaaaal.

  42. 42 Victoria August 27, 2009 at 6:34 am

    i am a new WG fan but i think that is awesome! i found out about WG because i am a dance addict and i’m always looking for new dances to learn. i saw a tutorial on youtube for So Hot and was instantly addicted to the music!

  43. 43 thalush January 2, 2010 at 2:17 am
