Nervous tackling The Virus alone

Nervous tackling The Virus alone
Kim Yu Bin of Wonder Girls.

Going solo for her acting debut in new TV drama The Virus has made member of Kpop girl group Wonder Girls Kim Yu Bin treasure her bandmates even more.

Speaking to the Singapore media in a phone interview from Korea, the 24-year-old singer said in a mix of simple English and Korean: "I felt very nervous and I had to take on more responsibilities being alone. I think about my members and cherish them."

Kim is the rapper of Wonder Girls, which also comprises Sunye, Yenny, Sohee and Hyelim.

The quintet, who made their debut in 2007, made a huge splash in Asia and subsequently the US with catchy tunes such as So Hot and Tell Me.

They reached the peak of their popularity when they released their infectious hit Nobody in 2008, sparking a dance craze around the world.

Word has it that Wonder Girls were going to disband after group leader Sunye, 24, got married in January. She is pregnant and her baby is due next month.

But the band's talent agency JYP Entertainment dismissed the rumours last week.
