A lil’ something for WGBB fans: here
* Big Bang and Wonder Girls went to Bangkok, Thailand for a fan meeting in April and May 2008 respectively. Its pretty amazing to see how phote editing and creativity can work wonders. And very convincing too as if both groups attended Paen Pleum tv show at the same time.

  24. congrats! i always figured wondergirls to be exceptional at the professional aspect, maybe because to me, they always seemed to maintain their posture and poise on many appearances from variety shows, to fan meets. big bang too, but with an extra spice on media influence. they certainly turn up the hype with clothing, accessories, and now books.
