So-hee and Sun-mi, two teenage members of Wonder Girls, have dropped out of high school to focus on their careers in America. The girls’ representative at JYP Entertainment admitted that the two girls voluntarily left school a while ago. They were both born in 1992.
According to their agency, So-hee and Sun-mi thought long and hard about dropping out of school with their families before making their final decision. They could have stayed in school if they were working only in Korea, but their overseas career necessitated a long absence from school, compelling them to stop their studies.
Meanwhile, Wonder Girls plans to release a single album for the first time in the United States on June 27th. The songs in the album are the English versions of their biggest hits, “Nobody” and “Tell Me.” The girls will also open the concerts for American pop idol Jonas Brothers from June 27 through mid-August. The first regular album of Wonder Girls in America will roll out sometimes in ! September or October of this year.
