I am excited as hell for them to debut in the U.S. coz that means there is a chance that they will be MORE well known in my country! But honestly speaking they still have a lot of improvements to do….they need to learn english & speak fluently and also they must have a wide vocabulary and not memorize speeches….they have to converse with people in the U.S. a lot and of course there will be surprise interviews which will not have them memorize speeches for it…so yeah…i guess they still have to study more…but i am happy that the girls are improving fast! Ye eun’s english skills are superb! and she’s probably the best & the most fluent one in the group! but she can’t handle the talking all by herself so the other members must be fluent also… I remember their interview in L.A. & ye eun do most of the talking….
anyways i hope JYP makes a good decision with this….but i’m scared for the girls….the U.S. Music Industry is some scary place….it would be better if JYP promotes WG to Japan first or China then the U.S.
