right when I heard the title, I immediately though of electric shock. So maybe it would be more techo pop, just hope no autotune please, just because it techo doesn't mean it need autotune. I can't wait to hear the song.

There's a rumour that Yasutaka Nakata (Perfume, Capsule, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, etc.) wrote/produced Electric Boy.

Is this true?!

OMG.

It's better then I thought it would be ^-^ It has that cute side somehow that mades KARA the fairies/angels of Korea. But they manage to still look sexy!

I love the dance too! I can't wait to hear the full song and hear the full MV!

I'm so out of date lately. Can't keep up with current Kara releases and activities. Need to step up again. KARA JJANG! Can't believe their new single and KARASIA Japan Tour DVD will be released at the same time. I'll be totally broke again! :D

At first, I was so used to Kara's usual sweetune sounds that I was a little disappointed. But, after listening to it multiple times I've really grown to like the song electric boy! ^__^ It's really fun and poppy. I have to look up translations for it tho ~o~;; I only understand about 70% of it. xD

The full song is okay I guess, the bridge before the chorus sounds a little out of place though, but the rest are good. The break when they are in the whit dresses is melodious and it really reminds me of Step's break too. Overall, it's still Pandora over this track for me though, but the instrumental seems to be a good jam.

Is it a new hairstyle or Hammie's hair looks novel on her when she's wearing the pink outfit? The parting makes her resemble one of concepts of an SNSD MV, just forgot who or what MV it was... Ahh I recalled, the hairstyle reminds me of the hairstyle and concept of Honey, and a little less retro.

Nicole should put her hair behind her ears more often. She looks really good when she does that.

I've gotta say I love all the outfits. Totally can see the Japanese style and design of them, like they're anime characters. Especially Jiyoung's blue outfit. Finally an outfit that makes her look a little smaller to fit the rest lol. :tongue:

I really love the song.

Maybe because I really love KARA, there isn't many musics from them that I don't like (except KARA4 songs).

Also, I'm a sucker for J-Music, so that's a big plus

But Electric Boy is cool. I'm gonna see the PV again! >_<

If you haven't noticed by now, the lyrics jjy posted are fake (and really poorly written as well) so please await the official lyrics (which I may or may not post, since I'm technically on a hiatus >__<) ~ Anyway, I just want to say that I like this song~ I'm not a fan of electric-y (?) songs but it's really catchy and fun, cute but not overdone (lol it rhymes), which is classic KARA. It's this over Pandora for me as well. I can't wait to hear what Orion sounds like! I hope it's about stars/constellations because I'm quite into that kind of stuff lol

I love the little solo parts each member has, especially when Seungyeon is fake djing.

I've listened/watched the song/PV so much today, I left it on repeat all day today. Counting up the repeats and the times, I hit 10 hours (152 replays and 2:08)... I love the song, and I love the video. Seungyeon is so gorgeous too.

I'm quite afraid that this single can't reach 100k copies in 1st week since it' s a lead-in single. They will release the DVD/Blu-ray KARASIA in Japan and it will hurt the sales of both materials :( Not to mention that J-Kamilias already know that UMJ will release 3rd Japanese album on 14th November, so they will hold on and save up for the album coming out later. The situation is just like Jumping-Girl 's Talk or Winter Magic-Super Girl.

My prediction is

1st day: 30-40k

1st week: 70-85k

Total: 120-135k

We just have to see what happen. It seem after their first single they been release things very close together. I believe that some did jeopardy kara sells but they always manage to sell well. I think that the first day would be 35k first week would be 55k but overall they would get gold.
