Our Interview with the Wonder Girls

May 27, 2012


Share Post

Woot! Here’s the first of our three interviews we did over at Google and YouTube headquarters. We’re doing them in the order that we filmed them (it’s only fair!), and the first group we interviewed was the Wonder Girls. Woot!

So here’s our interview with them. It’s in two parts, and we put it in a playlist. If you can’t view the playlist, here’s part 2 of our interview embedded below:

So, let’s just say how happy we were to do this interview. Not just because we were able to sit down with one of the most famous, most influential Kpop bands in the universe (though that IS hella awesome). We were just really happy during the interview because the Wonder Girls are so level headed and fun and easy going, and by no means as inflated as they should be. Seriously: THEY’RE THE WONDER GIRLS! They should be like “PFFFT Go Away!” in their best Snape voice, but they didn’t have a drop of arrogance to them. They laughed with us, were giggling with each other at our cheesy jokes, and were able to speak with openly and casually. They made us feel so comfortable, and had such a warm sincerity about them that gave the interview a really relaxed vibe to it. We had a great time with them. Wonder Girls, if you’re reading this, thanks!

Anyhow, if you don’t know, they’ve got a new song coming out in June! We can’t give you that song’s album signed yet, of course, since it’s not actually out yet, but we do have their LAST album covered with their signatures and DNA! OOOH YOU WANT IT DON’T YOU?!?! Well, all you gotta do to get it is:

A) Subscribe to our YouTube videos. and
B) Let us know what you’d ask them if you got the chance to interview them.

BOOM! That easy! Who knows: maybe one of these days we’ll get to interview them again and we could ask your question! Give us good material, and we’ll give you their CD. Yay!

Leave your answer either in our YouTube video’s comments, or in the comments here. If you’re gonna leave them here, make sure you leave your YouTube username as well, so we can know if you’ve subscribed, of course!

  2. Could you ask them about their childhood? For example:

    1. Up till the age of 5, what was their favourite toy/s? (eg. Barbie, Lego, sandpit, piano….)
    2. Mention one belonging they still keep from childhood, and why.
    3. Is there anyone that they haven’t seen for over 10 years and really want to meet again? What would they do when they meet?
    4. What’s an event that happened in primary school that made them cry?
    5. When did they start taking formal lessons for singing/dancing/musical instruments? Did they enjoy it or resent it? How do they feel about it now?
    6. When they were young, did they have times when people would look down on them, bully them, or call them failures? Have they ever had the urge to now go back to those people and say, “Look at me now!”

    If you could take anything back from your career and go back to life with your families, or anything else that you aspired to do when you were younger, would you do it? If so, what would you do if you werent in the position you were today? Like what was your dream when you were little, besides being an idol if that is what you aspired to be? ^^

  27. did i just heard yenny said malaysia !! AWESOME !!! and the question i would want to ask is what if the wonder girls are not formed by JYP would they have that many opportunities to shine in the american market??? -hoddylim-

    8 years ago
  28. If I were to ask them a question, I’d ask how they feel about their CEO whispering “JYP” at the beginning of all their songs. I don’t know if they’d be able to answer honestly, considering he’s their CEO, but he seems like a pretty cool dude, so you never know…
    I’d also be curious to know what they’re favorite song they’ve ever done as a group is.
    I’d want to know so much more! But I’ll leave it with just those two questions.

  39. Hi! I’m “MiSS405” on YouTube! :D

    Ooo.. I hope I win their CD! (or the MBLAQ’s! hehehheheheee)

    I would ask them:
    “It’s natural to always compare ourselves with others, epecially in the same industry.  So tell me about a time where you felt jealous over another group’s sucess (on the music charts) when they released a song or an album the same time as you.  When was it and how did you feel?  Did any point did you get angry or feel like you want to give up?”
