For those who have been waiting for the “Hoot” Album Japan vers.,  they have finally been released today. 4 versions –‘Normal Edition’, ‘Limited Edition’ (ALBUM + DVD), ‘Limited Pressing’ (ALBUM + DVD), and ‘Deluxe First Press Limited Edition’ (ALBUM + DVD) — ranging from about $22.25-47.99, are ready to be bought in stores or shipped out.

The album consists of 11 Korean tracks (the 5 tracks from the original ‘Hoot’ mini album plus 6 bonus tracks from former SNSD’s albums –‘Hoot’, ‘Mistake’, ‘My Best Friend’, ‘Wake Up’, ‘Snowy Wish’, ‘Gee’, ‘Genie’, ‘Oh!’, ‘Run Devil Run’, “Show! Show! Show!’, ‘Be Happy’) and  although you might be thinking we have already heard them and the Japan vers. might be redunkulously overpriced, the album exclusively includes a DVD with the girls’ ‘Hoot’ music clip/mv & ‘Premium Show Case Live in Ariake Colosseum 2010.08.25’. The fact that there is an exclusive DVD has many Sones hyped up, especially Japanese Sones.

Fortunately, fans have taken pictures of the promotional displays at Shinjuku Tower record in Shibuya, Tokyo and the album itself for us to see.

“* watching the Ariake showcase live DVD *”

“”Tokyo, Put it back on!!!!” 有明のライブ、思い出すなあ。”

“この通訳さんの声は、、、「中年時代」さん? (Ariake showcase DVD)”

“I think the camera work and scene editing of the Ariake showcase DVD are great, featuring both #SNSD ‘s excellent formation dancing and each member’s really cute close-up shots, totally different from TV shows’ ones. Due to this, their performance looks refreshing.”
