Former Wonder Girls' member Lim revealed the story behind her acceptance into JYP Entertainment.


She was one of the guests on 'Taxi' on March 16, where she talked about auditioning for labels. She said, "I lived in Hong Kong for 14 years. I came to Korea when I was in my third year of junior high. I came to Korea after being accepted into JYP Entertainment."

She then added, "I liked BoA sunbaenim ever since I was young. I originally wanted to go to SM Entertainment, but I was young back then, so I didn't know how to properly submit my documents. While I was applying there was an error and I couldn't. I was going to apply again the next day, but then JYP Entertainment had an audition in Hong Kong that day. So I took that audition and got accepted. I don't have any regrets."

    Well another BoA admirer. What's new? The whole world loves the Queen of Kpop unless you're a newbie.

    okok haha i get your point, btut dont you what my point and allexhay's point is that within the Big 3, SM is probably the most known agency with so many artists/talent filling a case bec SM doesnt treat them well

    That's true, but also is known for having most of their artist renewing their contracts (SNSD, Super Junior, TVXQ, f(x))... Always trying to point out the bad thing about SM, but they also have many good things

    No hate but it's better if she's staying as actresses instead of singer. I've been listening to all wonder girls songs but her voice is just ughhhhhh. Wonder why jyp cast her as a singer in the first place.

    Well to be fair. All WG members don't have any uniqueness to begin with.

    Nope, they surely don't. WTF is wrong with you, talk about uniqueness. Ha:tfelt has a solo debut which was way above the word 'unique' Yubin showcased her rap skills, sunmi's personally is alone above unique and Lim actually is a good rapper as well however she doesnt get to show it due to WG songs.

    They are plain, get it? There is nothing recognisable about their skills as a singer/performer. Sheesh. They have no stage presence. Their vocal skills are average. Everyone can have a solo debut as well so what's your point here?

    That's because they are from JYP and they got their fame from their Nobody. If they are from another company besides the top 3, they will really be nobodies.

    Google prior to responding. Their main hit is Tell me, however their debut 'Irony' was a hit too, as well as Be my baby (xmas theme song that was used everywhere) and nobody. And based on your reply you are aware that nobody is huge also. talking about 1 hit ? GTFO do proper research next time.

    Please do google about the group prior to commenting your trash hate. Lemme brief you about wonder girls Debut - Irony /with Hyuna. Got all rewards and won rookie awards. 1st Come back - Tell me, was a song that its still a hit right now and this is their biggest song. This song is still being used a lot and one of the kpop stereo type songs. You can still see lots idols dancing/singing this. 2nd comeback - So Hot, once again successfully took all awards, another massive hit, they sustained as #GG whilst SNSD were 2nd their competition was SNSD Black Pearl and Kara 3rd - Nobody - Massive hit that even exposed them into some of the USA artists. Once again slaughtered all the awards. Be my baby was a huge hit once again, it was used as a xmas theme song in literally everywhere in south korea. Like this - it wasnt as successful as previous songs however they managed to gain lots awards with this. and achieved an all kill (again) 2 English songs - DJ is mine, Like money. These were not as successful however they debuted in USA with a movie, which was streamed all over the world ;). Comebacks not successful - after member crisis 2 Different tears, and Why so lonely. However queens slaughtered again with Why So Lonely, competing with new generation groups and getting awards as well as an all kill that kept in charts for a while. Draw me - was not charting, but this is due to being a digital single release only. In the very end - Wonder girls has 40 songs, many tour concerts and respect. They're the girl group that opened and spread kpop to the world, they opened a new generation with their hit tell me. Now, off you go to google - do your research.

    You're retarded. Ask the general public who gives a shit about Irony and Tell me. Who gives a shit about what won what and who won what? They came from JYP, THEY ARE BOUND TO WIN AWARDS AND TROPHIES. Anyone who comes from the Big 3 can easily get recognition just from some basic promotion even without having any talent because that's just the unwritten privilege you dumb fuck. Google doesn't do shit. What do you think this is? Google Scholar to cite and reference your PhD thesis? Are you even a uni student to understand what I just said? You pathetic garbage. Do you think people generally knows what Be my Baby is or what 2 Different Tears is? or do they recognise the tune of Nobody when you hum or sing a few lines of it? Just fuck off. You are a cancerous bitch. If you want me to do research, I can easily search for tons and tons of other groups and even soloist who have greater success than WG and actually have uniqueness. Also winning awards does not mean you are unique. Fuck you and your rotten cunt brains.

    SM has the highest group success rate.  catch is they expect u to work hard.  crazy thing is she maybe could've made it in Soshi, its round about that time soshi was training.

    She didn't come in until after WG and SNSD were formed and debuted. She was originally supposed to debut with the girls who ended up in missA (minus Suzy), but she was moved to WG when Mimi bowed out. She would probably have been in f(x).
