  1. According to CJVE's website, the bonus footage on the type A DVD for bliss consists of footage from: - 2016 Calendar shooting - Christmas Fan Meeting - DON'T STOP release event in Tokyo source
  2. Saigo no Sayonara -unveil edit-: YT: Dailymotion: The original file is in the mediabox for anyone who wants it. edit Also the secret edit (re: the normal version) for anyone who might not have seen it. Can't post the raw file to the mediabox though, as I ripped it from the DVD ;~;
  3. Added some corrections to the lyrics of "I'm Not into You" above. There's a video compilation of all of Jiyoung's greeting messages -- the English one is the same as above, and I had linked the Chinese one in the shoutbox a couple of days ago. In the Korean one, she introduces herself as Jiyoung Kang, noting after about her stage name JY. Also, she mentions to wait for her after mentioning about those in Korea... perhaps she's preparing to actually return there at some point? (If someone who understands Korean can clarify what she means, it'd be nice :'>) The Japanese portion is more a proper interview -- some of it is reiteration of the English/Korean sections on who she worked with for RADIO and Saigo no Sayonara and the kind of songs they are. She notes that with Saigo no Sayonara being her debut song, she felt nervous and pressured with it being her first time with a ballad, but also felt she did her best with it. On the other hand, she noted RADIO was a song she wanted to try doing upon hearing it, mainly from liking songs that put her in high spirits. She also notes she'd like to try a variety of song genres moving forward, and also wants to put her own thoughts into her songs (she points out "Sayonara Watashi no Shoujo" with this, as she had co-written the lyrics for it).
  4. "You're radiant, like an angel." "Oh my God, no. Nonononono, you're wrong." lol Nicole Also like they played some of HAPPY in the background, didn't catch that part of what was posted to Twitter of this.
  5. There's a third version of the single coming out, which is exclusive to Bicycle members. The CD tracklist is the same, except "RADIO" is added as a bonus track. The primary difference is the DVD, which has the unveil edit, BTS footage and RADIO's PV. They have a card bonus too; however, the designs are taken from RADIO instead of Saigo no Sayonara like the other two editions.
  6. Order a copy from HMV anyway lol Really wish though they'd give the bonuses at more than just HMV, Tower Records, etc. ;~;
  7. Full PV when lol ;w; Also release events were listed on her official site: April 23rd -> Osaka, Abe no Q's Mall, 3F Sky Court April 24th -> Tokyo, Odaiba Venus Fort, 2F church plaza April 30th -> Aichi, Tower Records Nagoya-Kintetsu Passe store, roof event space source
  8. Fixed some of it for you, namely the chorus (since she's usually saying "it's up in the air"). Also lyrics for "I'm Just Not into You", done by ear since there's no actual lyric sheet for it (there's a couple of lines that sound right but look really odd to me, if anyone has better ideas on them editchanged some lines with suggestions from PKKamilia1):
  9. Gyuri tweeted about 30 minutes ago, saying "I want to go to KARA Night"... wonder what she's referring to though?
  10. They did promote it though? She had a good amount of radio appearances and fan meetings in stores for it at least, and I recall there being notes of her being on a couple of shows as well (Buzzrhythm being one off the top of my head). For some reason clips of Nicole on Japanese shows tend to not be shared often though, which in turn does make it seem like she's not doing much in terms of promotions -- Something Special had the same issue there. The single was released in Japan, so there's no real reason she would go on Korean shows to promote it as it's not a release for there. The same thing will also apply to bliss when it comes out. As PKKamilia1 noted, Nicole has been hosting Beauty Station and was also at Hera Seoul Fashion Week on Wednesday, and will be taking part of more of the events there on Saturday (according to her fancafe).
  11. Kind of wondering if card B is the only one people got lol, it's the one I've seen the most.
  12. Updated OP with album covers and first press bonus info.
  13. Short clip of Jiyoung promoting "RADIO": Also "Saigo no Sayonara" debuted at number 7 on the weekly Oricon charts. source
  14. Pic I took while looking at iTunes Australia, for those wondering on the tracklist for RADIO's international release. The artwork is also different from the Japanese release.
  15. Jiyoung finally revealed that JY is her (not that we didn't know already lol). The first image is for Saigo no Sayonara, the second is for RADIO. In her Korean post she notes that RADIO also has an intended release for the US, South Korea and other areas in Asia, but doesn't note a date on it.* She also notes she worked with English producers MNEK for the song. Both the Japanese and Korean posts aside from that note the reveal, her apology for keeping it a secret the whole time, and thanked her fans for their continued support. The short version of RADIO's PV will be released at noon JST (so in less than an hour as of this post), as will an alternate short version of Saigo no Sayonara's PV. *edit Sony's website notes that RADIO will be released in 47 countries, and will be a 3 song single available through iTunes. The site doesn't make the release date obvious though on whether it is the 16th as well or not. A different site notes that RADIO's release will be on March 17th, but no idea how accurate that is ;-; The description for the song's PV notes the release date is the 16th, so it'll release alongside Saigo no Sayonara.

  19. Someone at CJVE has some sense then. I've had cases of larger booklets in general not being separate and it looks awful. Also: the regular edition of bliss has the Japanese version of MAMA as its bonus track. Figured they'd have released that as her debut single honestly (or as one of the tracks on it), but waiting about a year and a half to release it is fine too... ~_~
  20. Regular edition. Bonus tracks are the best addition you can put on a single/album to get me to buy a copy lol :>
  21. Hara's official Japanese site opened today. Currently there's not a whole lot on it though -- you can sign up for her newsletter (will come from info@koohara.jp), and there is also a note that she will be hosting "The Power of K - Korea TV Fes in Japan" alongside Leeteuk of Super Junior on April 24th. (It's worth pointing out she is noted as "Hara Koo (KARA)" on the listing ) Hopefully this is is a sign of more Hara activities, even if it's just in Japan :>

  24. No, I don't think anyone on there has either the A or B editions (I have the CD-only copy on its way to me, and only intend on getting the CD-only version of the album as well). The A and B DVDs for Something Special are also missing. Also, the B version in the case of the untitled album has a booklet. Though honestly, booklets that come in normal CD cases are typically awful (in terms of quality and that it usually makes the case a weirder size). If that helps shiris figure out which one to get lol -w-;;
  25. Full details for Jiyoung's single were released today.
