That's right, guys! Wonder Girls' vocalist, Sunye, is tying the knot! She released a letter translated by allkpop below.
However, apart from my overwhelming excitement that an idol is espousing with the partner of their choice, I'm still wondering about the future of Wonder Girls from here on. Yes, Wonder Girls is still one of Korea's top groups arguably after Girls Generation and 2NE1, and, yes, Wonderfuls are still full of fans who support Sun's decision on tying the knot. Nevertheless, with Wonder Girls being a popular and established group, having a member who no longer is referred to as "innocent" or even "still available" will not receive good attention in the eyes of one of the most conservative, developed countries in the world--South Korea. And even if there was with a small chance that South Korea wouldn't mind, Sunye cannot remain an idol, going around the world and not even at the least communicating with her newly-wed husband for time periods ranging from days to weeks would be impossibly manageable. As Sunye is tying the knot, I would not be shocked to think that Sunye would want to settle down and leave the high and mighty life of being an idol with a farewell message and a few hugs shared and tears shed as she said her final goodbyes to her company and to her fans.
Yet now, I still have to contemplate about the Wonder Girl's future. JYP already stated that Wonder Girl's Sunmi will not rejoin and Wonder Girl's Yenny already confirmed with a message that Sunye are receiving loads of hate for this huge decision. With Wonder Girls Sunye not ending her contract with JYP in Wonder Girls as of now, it can be inferred that the Wonder Girls as a whole are receiving loads of hate because of their now newly engaged member as well. Though, subtle, Sunye's large contribution to the 2012's relationships gives Wonder Girls no longer their Wonder Girl title and instead makes uncle fans who meditated to the thought that the Wonder Girls will never grow up flip tables angrily in shock and cause nothing but trouble to Sunye and the Wonder Girls as she marries her fiancee in January and they whole-heartedly support her. It can also be inferred that not only because of her engagement but also because Wonder Girls prolonged inactivity which resulted in their lost of number 1 girl group that Wonder Girls will disband or do something drastic within the next few years, the unbalance and instability of JYP's arguable whole-group breadwinner becoming near if not already too much to handle.
Furthermore, though I am dreading the effect of Sunye's recent engagment, I am also ecstatic that she has a person in which she can call her love.
