Sunmi previously confessed that she originally wrote ‘Siren’ for Wonder Girls back in 2016. Plans fell through, and Sunmi ended up releasing it as a solo track back in September 2018.
Sunmi surprised fans at the end of 2018 by dropping the original version of the track that she made for Wonder Girls!

The original lyrics told a story of Sunmi telling her lover to leave her as they’ve grown out of love for her.
Now I’m being forgotten
That your heart is empty
Tell me that instead
Even though you know how sad my heart is
Your cold and heartless expression
I can’t stand it anymore
Don’t make it difficult
Me, the girl who doesn’t fit your fantasies.
— “Siren” (2016)
The original lyrics conveys a completely different story, where Sunmi dares you to fall in love with her, despite the fact that she will hurt you.
I told you not to be deceived
That the moment you take this hand, you’ll be in danger
Now you’re bleeding, but are you still attracted?
You clearly know but why are you staring at me?
Don’t hesitate even a little
You know that I’ll hurt you
The beautiful me of your fantasies doesn’t exist
— ‘Siren’ (2018)
After hearing how much the song changed within the two years, fans are in love with both versions! They’re demanding that Sunmi stop leaving them hanging and release the full track!
c-can we get the full version oh my god?
