EXO To Debut in Japan: Who Has The Best Japanese Singles?

So I just heard that EXO is debuting in Japan...
"According to music officials on August 25th, preparations for EXO’s debut Japanese album is underway, however, the release date has not been set though it is highly possible that they will release it at the end of the year."
And it got me thinking about all the Kpop/Jpop crossovers that I LOVE.

Below I listed my four favorite Japanese tracks by Korean artists that you MUUUUUST listen to.

Big Bang - Koe wo Kikasete

I love all of Big Bang's Japanese singles - mainly because I was in Japan when they first debuted and I had to convince my host family that Kpop was the next big thing. For some reason though, this is the song I love the most. It's a gorgeous video plus just a gorgeous track!

Infinite - She's Back (Japanese Version)

I'm usually not a huge fan of Japanese remakes (I prefer original Japanese songs) because the Japanese lyrics tend to not fit will with the beat that was written for the Korean words. For some reason though, I really, really like the Japanese version of She's Back.
Hoya's rap is amaaaaazing.

TVXQ - Why Did I Fall in Love With You?

I will always be a TVXQ 5EVER Cassiopeia. I honestly can't bring myself to listen to the new TVXQ stuff because these five boys are the reason I got into Kpop in the first place.
TVXQ were the first Koreans to really break into the Jpop scene. They had to start back at the bottom of the food chain and were treated like rookies and nobodies because, in Japan, they were! Now it's easy for Kpop groups to make Japanese debuts and that is all thanks to the suffering of TVXQ. I seriously love these boys to pieces and just listening to this song makes me want to cry for them.
This song is heart breaking, beautiful, and shows just how talented the members of TVXQ really are.

TVXQ - Stand By U

I studied Japanese for two years and this was one of the first songs I listened to where I actually understood every word.
This is another heartbreaking song that takes my breath away. I'm not really a ballad person when it comes to Kpop but something about Japanese ballads makes me so happy.
I could also add B1A4's Japanese singles (but not their Japanese remakes cause the Japanese just sounds awkward LOL), SNSD, and CN Blue to the list!!!

I want to get back into studying Japanese so send me tracks to listen to! List your favorites in the comments:

Also just a shameless VIXX promotion but they just dropped a new PV...

Wait wait wait so then exo M is gonna be singing in chinese korean and japanese. I hope they dont stress out so much cause that is mucho languages
daesungs Japanese solo albums, duh. lol
I love anything TVXQ does in Japanese. they are my absolute fave...BoA as well. Koe wo kikasete is also one of my favorite Japanese big bang songs mainly because it was used as the opening song for the dram Ohitorisama. Koike Teppei is crazy adorable! 😙
My favorite Kpop Japanese song is SHINee's "Can I Get Your Number?".
All of SHINees japanese promotion lol

It gave me strength to keep going on and on. During this journey, many vinglers have placed time to send me gifts and warming letters to me. which i still have. When im down, i read them one by one to smile like an idiot lol. The vingle team blessed me by reaching out to Taeyang from Big Bang. Telling him my story. Taeyang gave me more strength to keep going by sending me one of his CD all signed and with a small message. A message which helped my journey. Ofcourse, my beautiful husband Kwon Jiyong. The man who kept my heart alive and my life going. He is not just an idol, but my hero. His music and going to his concert gave me more life to keep going each day. Now here is the biggest news of 2018!!!!!!!! Today January 27th 2018, is the day that i was declared clear. I AM CLEAR FROM CANCER EVERYONE!!!!!!!! The battle was hard and crazy but Ive made it. I may have fallen manny timeesss. but im still standing and with my head up high. It feels good to be free and feel the life in my toes. lol I thank god, and my family.

Why Don't Idol Groups Work In America?
In Japan and Korea, idols are a huge deal. The fandoms surrounding idols and idol groups are massive, with a ton of merch, lingo, events, etc surrounding the entertainers. So why isn't that happening in America? The UK tried it out with One Direction and we have a few girl groups like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix, but for the most part the classic pop group ensemble faded away in the early 2000s. Here are a few reasons why it might not work: I'm not saying either opinion is correct - just stating how the general public views celebrities in America vs Korea/Japan. I'm not an expert on either so please share your opinions as well! 1. The Concept of Being An Idol Sure, celebrities in the US know that they are role models, but do they really take this as their job?! In Japan and Korea, a single slip up can mean public humiliation (such as when an AKB48 member had a boyfriend - she had to shave her head as an apology) while in America celebrities insist on their personal rights to do whatever they want. In their opinion, just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you aren't allowed a personal life. They should be able to be in the lime light but also have a lot of personal life that shouldn't be judged by the public, In Japan/Korea, every aspect of an entertainers life is analyzed and people know that is just part of the job. You must be a model citizen at all times and any bad behaviour (whether its on or off camera) is bad for your company, your career, and your fans. 2. Company Loyalty In America, we know the big companies like Warner, Sony, etc, but we rarely pay attention to what label each artist is on. And even if they're on the same label they don't really work together so its hard for fans to be loyal to one company. The closest I think we can get to that is waaay back with Motown Records or more recently the bands that came out on Fueled By Ramen. Smaller hip hop labels still keep this group style too! We could actually see the connection the artists had on those labels and could support the label as well as the artists. Now in Korea, we all know that companies are a big deal. YG Family, JYP, Cube, SM, etc. They do things together like concerts, Christmas songs, etc. We are able to anticipate the company's new project or collaboration. It's easier for the fans to get hyped over multiple groups at once. 3. Pre-Packaged In America, bands are usually put together by the band members. Whether they start in a garage or they put up flyers to find members, it is the band that forms first, then the label that signs them. In Korea and Japan however, we have a TON of trainees all hoping to be perfectly placed in a group. Think of the show Produce! Perfect example of prepackaging :) One Direction is an example of that happening where the boys were somewhat put together by a label, but musical and personality differences got in the way :/ 4. Training Idols train a LOT. Sure, in America entertainers practice, train, get vocal lessons, learn new instruments, get prepped for interviews etc but they are not forced to practice for 12 hours a day. Living in dorms without cell phones or internet, being forced to learn languages, dances, public speaking, etc - its totally normal in the idol world. Because of this, idols should be pretty prepared for anything. I'm not so sure American entertainers would be up for this style of training. Can you think of other reasons why the "idol" style of the music industry doesn't work in America?
