This is really shocking! I’m lost for words again but for a different reason this time. i never thought that this would happen to Wonder Girls at the time when they are doing so well in US. This is a sad news for Mimi’s fans but let’s continue to show our love and support to 4-D and hope everything goes well for her. Hope WonderFuls will give as much love and support to the new member, 17 year-old Lim who will be joining the Wonder Girls in March. This is JYP Entertainment’s official statement:
JYP Entertainment has announced that Mimi from the Wonder Girls has decided
to postpone her musical career to pursue an academic career.
Mimi, the rest of the Wonder Girls members, her family, and JYP Entertainment
have collectively decided to postpone her musical career for the time being.
JYP Entertainment said, “Mimi had a truly memorable, once in a lifetime
experience while living in the U.S. and touring over 50 cities. We support her
decision to pursue an academic career at this time. We will also support Mimi if
she chooses to return to singing after her academics are complete. In the
meantime, she plans to frequent JYP facilities and continue her dance and vocal
Mimi will remain with the Wonder Girls in the U.S., continuing with any scheduled
performances and activities until the end of February. As of March, she will return
to Korea and prepare to focus on her studies. JYP has named 17 year old Lim as
