Korea’s hottest female group Wonder Girls will hold their first solo concert. This will be the first solo concert given by a female idol group since 2000.
An official with JYP Entertainment announced that the five-member group will perform in a 5,000-seat venue sometime in February 2009. More details on the date and venue will be released later.
The last female idol group to hold a solo concert was S.E.S. in 2000. There had been a number of female idol groups since S.E.S. and Fin.KL, but none had attempted to hold a solo concert, because they lacked the ticket-drawing power compared to male groups.
However, Wonder Girls created a storm in the Korean music industry by releasing a hit after hit. Last year’s “Tell Me” was followed by this year’s “So Hot” and “Nobody,” which motivated Wonder Girls and JYP Entertainment to take a chance with a solo performance. They were further emboldened by their experience as a special guest in Park Jin-young’s concert in the U.S. earlier this year. The spokesperson for Wonder Girls said that the five girls are very excited about the opportunity and hard at work to prepare for the next year’s show.
