The Wonder Girls

The world is getting smaller because of the internet. And we have the ability to see and hear things from other countries and cultures that would have been virtually impossible twenty years ago. With MTV bringing us global videos and Youtube's reach, we can get a slice of the world anywhere.

So today I'll show you K-pop, which is short for Korean pop music. It is only fitting and just that I give you an example of some great K-pop after the hair curling Korean karoake video from last week.

And while it is bubble gum pop, I can't help but like it. One because the video cracks me up. You'll know why as soon as you see it. Hey! It must be in our blood or something. Koreans just love toilet humor!!! But this group is a little different. It's bubble gum pop with an R&B 60s twist. They are not the Dreamgirls, but the Wonder girls are pretty darn cool. Oh and while there are no subtitles, I think the video is pretty self-explanatory. And if you don't get it, the message is, always check for toilet paper!

Cute! I'm going to have "Nobody Nobody but you!" in my mind all day! I will always check too, I certainly don't want any hot chicks dressed in gold stealing my career! :)

Couldn't you maybe play some Korean heavy metal? I'd much prefer that.

I loved it! The first guy kind of reminded me of James Brown.

This was such fun and proves that one never knows when luck -- as in opportunity -- will strike. Also had to smile at seeing "Piggty" bounce along to the music! *BG*

Very catchy! Ditto Kelly.

I never go potty (in the American sense - I frequently go potty in the Irish/English sense) without checking the paper situation first. I'm convinced that Irish people and Koreans share a common ancestry. The humour is too similar. So Happy Paddy's Day Ell..

**Nobody, nobody , but youuuu**

I luv to hear music from other cultures!

My friends are going to hate you because I'm going to make us all reenact this dance.

My girls are crazy about K-pop, but how frustrating: I can't watch this, for some reason. I'll have to come back...
