The album consists of the Japanese versions of their Korean hits ‘MUZIK’ and ‘I MY ME MINE’, as well as four new tracks namely ‘Hide and Seek’, ‘Already Gone’, ‘Can’t Make Up My Mind’ and ‘December’.
“We view this full album to be a good turning-point of 4minute’s popularity in Japan, as the first ever Korean girl group to advance into Japan,” stated Cube Entertainment
4Minute is all set to hype up both Japanese and Korean market with this album since it is a combination of Korean and Japanese songs.
Listen to the tracks:
After forgetting how old they are and getting dissed on a Japanese TV show it seems 4miniute is done with Japan (at least for now)
6 months after releasing their last mini album “Hit Your Heart” 4minute is ready for a K-pop comeback
It is not clear what the title of the album will be but regardless the girl’s could certainly use a welcoming party after the hard work they have done in Japan promoting their music since early May.
But yet despite their hard and the fact they released an original single their latest single FIRST/DREAMS COME TRUE BOMBED the charts, charting at no.28 on the Oricon Weekly Chart their lowest charting single to date.
Guess Japan just isn’t warming up to the muizk :/
4minute recently appeared as guests on the Japanese show NTV PON this week where they went to promote their new J-pop single First/Dreams Come True, instead though the girls were humiliated and ignored by the hosts
The girls only received about 10 minutes of airtime during the whole show and rather than engaging with the hosts they were pushed to the back of the room where the hosts paid no attention to them. In the end the girl’s ended up really not doing anything except watching as the hosts cooked.
Netizens released their anger and frustration towards the show writing
“Just come back here in Korea and we’ll give you more love here.”
“Is this the proper treatment that idols with more than 2000 fans should receive?”
“They cut off the music in the middle of the dance to cook.”
“Do they even have any common sense on what they have done?” (more…)
FIRST, 4Minute‘s 3rd Japanese single, is going to be released in 4 days. Before then, enjoy the MV for FIRST uploaded in their official YouTube channel. (more…)
Well they sure don’t waste anytime!
Korea’s king of pop Rain recently returned to the small screen in the spy-action drama The Fugitive Plan B (a.k.a. Runaway Plan B), his first TV series in five years. Rain and Lee Na Young, herself making a TV comeback after six years, play competing operatives who cross paths on the hunt. They hide their true motives from each other, but budding romance puts an unexpected dent in their respective missions. From the director and screenwriter of Chuno, the highly anticipated globe-trotting drama co-stars Daniel Henney, Lee Jung Jin, Yoon Jin Seo, Uehara Takako, and Takenaka Naoto.
Rain didn’t participate in the soundtrack for Fugitive Plan B, but his proteges MBLAQ did. The popular boy band’s energetic theme song RUNNING&RUNNING matches the drama’s action-packed pace. Shin Seung Hun sings Rain’s character ballad theme “Do Not Believe in Love”, while Brown Eye Girls member Jea takes care of the heroine’s theme Poison. Hot girl group 4Minute and newcomer ORAN-G also contributed songs to the soundtrack.
