NO!!!!! I <3 SUNMI so so much!!! She IS one of my favorite Wonder Girls members!!!! How can she do this and be replaced?!? But I guess education comes first because when she ends her music career, then it will be easier to get a job. Sunmi better come back to the Wonder Girls later…at least before 2015 comes!
