On January 14th, Nayutawave Records made an announcement on their official website that a Japanese version of ‘Run Devil Run’ would soon be available for download as a ring tone. Roughly translated, the message says:
Last year SNSD released their introductory Japanese single [Genie] and a second single [Gee], followed by the hit DVD [New Beginning of Girls’ Generation] and their latest Korean album [Hoot]. This year the hottest group, SNSD, want to give the first gift of the New Year! A Japanese version of the Korean hit [Run Devil Run] will make an appearance!! On January 18th a mobile ring tone will be available and on January 25th the full ring tone will be made available via digital download on the website.
This is exciting news! Perhaps there’s a Run Devil Run Japanese single in the works as well?? At this point we can only hope/guess. No word yet on the status of ‘Oh!’. Stay tuned and we’ll be sure to fill you in on any further developments as Soshi dominates overseas.
