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."

Who doesn't love BoA? She IS the Queen. :)

if wg had gone to sm.... maybe better treatment and no disbanding T_T

Pre_Historic_Fan borabora_97 Thursday, March 16, 2017

i doubt that.

allexyah borabora_97 Thursday, March 16, 2017

SM better treatment?

Pre_Historic_Fan allexyah Thursday, March 16, 2017

IKR hahaha he/she must be new :))

borabora_97 Pre_Historic_Fan Thursday, March 16, 2017

no lol but nice try

Pre_Historic_Fan borabora_97 Thursday, March 16, 2017

I dont get the point of your comment :))

borabora_97 Pre_Historic_Fan Thursday, March 16, 2017

ok tbh me either lmao. my point wiht the first one is jsut comparing how well snsd are doing with wg, jyp couldve done better and if it was wg in sm instead of snsd then they wouldve been treated better. thats all

Pre_Historic_Fan borabora_97 Thursday, March 16, 2017

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

Yago Pre_Historic_Fan Thursday, March 16, 2017

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

anna_sueweeties borabora_97 Thursday, March 16, 2017

everyone have their own fate and journey... you can't predict one's future lol...thus u can't decide which is better for whom dear ^^

borabora_97 anna_sueweeties Friday, March 17, 2017

i can dream

nanaluvhyunjoong Thursday, March 16, 2017

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.

youcangoeatshit nanaluvhyunjoong Thursday, March 16, 2017

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

iBrogax youcangoeatshit Thursday, March 16, 2017

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.

shubhajan nanaluvhyunjoong Thursday, March 16, 2017

her voice is amazing! she can rap and sing! that is hard to find in this KPOP world, finding a singer who can sing amazingly and rap amazingly is hard to find!

youcangoeatshit iBrogax Thursday, March 16, 2017

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?

iBrogax youcangoeatshit Friday, March 17, 2017

Yeah nothing recognizable, yet they done pretty well with their latest come back :).

youcangoeatshit iBrogax Friday, March 17, 2017

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.

iBrogax youcangoeatshit Friday, March 17, 2017

Well wondering how the ''nobodies'' got the biggest hit in kpop wolrd up to now :). GTFO nugu dont waste my time

youcangoeatshit iBrogax Friday, March 17, 2017

Learn to read what I said you illiterate loser. I said they got their fame from Nobody, their one-hit wonder. Or do you not understand simple English? Fuck off bitch you are the one wasting my time here =)

iBrogax youcangoeatshit Monday, March 20, 2017

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.

iBrogax Monday, March 20, 2017

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.

youcangoeatshit iBrogax Monday, March 20, 2017

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.

youcangoeatshit iBrogax Monday, March 20, 2017

You know what. Just stop. You are just a blind cancerous fan in denial. Just stop for your own good.

youcangoeatshit iBrogax Monday, March 20, 2017

Also since when am I a hater? Just because I disagree with you? Fuck off you childish bitch.

iBrogax youcangoeatshit Monday, March 20, 2017

Weird how you say its all JYP, they're the one that created the famous JYP, after them 2PM and Miss A had their chances . . Also ''Childish bitch'' do your research once again dumbass.

alphabeta91 Thursday, March 16, 2017

she's such a beauty!

smokeee Thursday, March 16, 2017

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.

Kminyoungiee smokeee Thursday, March 16, 2017

COmpared to the other girls who didn't make it into the group I dont think she would have made it

BigBlueagain smokeee Thursday, March 16, 2017

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).

ChrisNKSYJ BigBlueagain Thursday, March 16, 2017

or she could've ended up on ReVel

liviekate ChrisNKSYJ Thursday, March 16, 2017

wow thats weird to think about, shes been in the industry so long that to think she's actually in the same age range as rv is weird haha
