Wonder Girls will be making a comeback in three years this July as a four-member band with Yeeun, Hyelim, Yubin and Sunmi.

On shifting gears from a dance group to a band, JYP stated, "Wonder Girls is a nine-year-old idol group. They have been active for a long time and have participated in diverse activities during that time. They discussed that they wanted to show a new side, that it′s time they tried reinventing themselves musically and began preparing to come back as a band."

According to JYP, Hyelim will play guitar, Yubin will play drums, Yeeun will be on the keyboard and Sunmi will play the bass.

Member Sunye will not be participating in the upcoming promotions. Sunmi, who left the group in 2010 and began solo promotions, will join instead. Sunye got married in January of last year, and after giving birth to a son, left for Canada to focus on her family. The rep from JYP explained, "It′s true she came to Korea recently, but it was for personal reasons, unrelated to Wonder Girls. She won′t be participating in this Wonder Girls comeback, but she hasn′t left the group."

Meanwhile, Wonder Girls filmed the music video for its new song on June 24 and plans to make a comeback in July.
