"GAGAGA" to be released simultaneously in Japan and Korea

So, did something catch your ear while listening to GAGAGA?  Something like, Korean lyrics, plus a sound that seems to borrow from KPOP?

Well, there's an app for that a good reason for that:

AkiP (otherwise known as Akimoto Yasushi, the general producer of the official ◯◯◯48 groups, has announced that GAGAGA will be released simultaneously in both Japan and Korea.  Planning for that, he had a Korean composer work on the song, and also added in the Korean rap section you all heard (or maybe will keep an ear out for now).  The concept of the song was "JPOP that's aiming for KPOP".

Well, I'm not sure how well they'll do in Korea (of course I wish them success), and I'm frankly more concerned with how they'll be received in Japan, but good luck with your international debut, SDN48!

Wow, I didn't think I'd be saying "international debut" so soon. XD

  1. now that explains it!

    I remember joking about Aki-P trolling Kpoop by discreetly making an AKB48 song look/sound like kpop or something. But damn, so he is doing it now huh, and not even discreetly but all out! and with SDN48 elbows! xD

    good luck to them! the song is so addicting! Can't wait to hear the other songs on this release, especially Nachu's :D
