i checked SMent’s YT page, and there’s nothing yet. its currently 12 AM in JP/KN right now…but its 9 AM (may 20 PST) time for me. either they release this afternoon (4PM PST) for me or 12 PM (PST)….gosh I’m so excited. some of the Shinee members will be introduced on SNSD’s upcoming japanese tour. rumors are that after seeing the girls at the English Village wearing their Mr. Taxi outfits. they are to film a new mv for this japanese tour which involves Key of Shinee!
THIS WILL BE THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! Can’t wait to wake up on my birthday (July 13) and see all the pictures and videos *squeals*
OMG! I wish so bad that i could be there to see this live…SNSD + 4MINUTE = SpazzOverload!!! @_@
Although it is labeled a “K-pop” concert, I’m sure that the songs sung will be in Japanese, right? All of the groups in that poster have more than enough Japanese songs to fill out a concert. Now here is the interesting part: Since Soshified said it will be a live broadcast by KBS Music Bank, has KBS or any Korean broadcaster ever allowed any kpop group to promote full Japanese-language tracks on their airwaves?
And a philosophical question: Is it true “hallyu” if they are singing in Japanese? People all over the world love Kpop even though most of us don’t speak Korean. Even in Japan, SNSD got a lot of people to come to their Japanese showcases and cosplay strictly on their Korean DVD material. And didn’t Kara have a Japanese TV personality gushing about them way before Kara debuted in Japan? So even if this “K-pop” festival was strictly with Korean songs, I’m sure it would be a hit too.
Does anyone know the set list of January’s SMTown in Japan? How much of DBSK/SNSD/Boa material was sung in Japanese?
Actually, I’m reading elsewhere that this will indeed be a Korean-language concert, hence the “k-pop festival” in the title. So I guess KBS will be covering the kpop idols as national heroes conquering the hearts of their nearby rival. So it would be like a Dream Concert, but in Japan, and broadcast live on KBS (not tape delayed as SBS does), and with paying customers (instead of fanclub tickets)..
For SMTown concerts in Japan, the SM artists performed Japanese versions of their Korean songs that were remade into Japanese, and stuck to Korean for songs that don’t have Japanese remakes. But since this is technically Music Bank which is a Korean broadcast program, the entire concert will be in Korean language.
i really want to buy their album, but unfortunately i cant…T.T
snsdkorean can organize competition to gift out?…haha…joking…
hallyu is expanding in japan…
SNSD, fighting! ^^
