Release Date: July 5, 2016

Track Listing

  1. Why So Lonely
  2. To the Beautiful You
  3. Sweet & Easy


Why So Lonely is the fourth Korean single released by the Wonder Girls. It’s difficult to believe that this is only their fourth single given that how long this group has been around. Arriving 6 years after 2 Different Tears, Why So Lonely is a mid-tempo dancehall flavored song.

On the surface it may be stylistically similar to 2NE1’s Falling In Love but otherwise it feels like Why So Lonely has a more seductive swagger and is chill enough to fit within the realm of a summer anthem. What sets this song apart from the Wonder Girls’ previous effort since their reformation is that it doesn’t fall into the whole retro pop concept.

The b-sides however, do sound like they continue the whole old school pop concept they built their last comeback around. Both songs are great showcases of the Wonder Girls at their best. But if you’re looking for something that is closer to the what their current presentation is, then To The Beautiful You is probably the song you should gravitate to after the a-side.
