I don't know if anyone asked this before... but does DSP manage Kara in Japan? Or does UMG do it? @_@ I'm a bit confused.

Ugh yeah I don't want the single to keep on being postponed. Give us a release date already! Grrr.

^Universal manages them in Japan (thankfully that's the case, i'm not sure what would happen if DSP managed them in Japan :D )

From that lq, their voices seem different in the Japanese version? Maybe it's just the low quality. But the song seems to flow decently well in Japanese which is good. Hopefully a higher quality one will float around later.

It seems like they used autotune or put a voice over[maybe] to make it sound japanese-ish. I dunno the japanese versions of their old songs didn't have that japanese feel[except honey cuz honey was just made for a japanese version]

I'm not mad though, at least they are trying to fit in. I mean, pronunciation seems very important and the song sounding japanese.

Thank for this LQ version !

It doesn't sound weird but their voices doen't sound the same

I wonder if it's due to LQ or if they were asked to sing in that way

The good point is that the japanese lyrics seem to flow and fit the song

I hope we will get a better quality soon and of course the PV

This is making me more excited that ever! I hope they don't use too much autotune, tthough. They need to show Japan that they are capable singers!

Although chances are really slim, I hope they make a Lupin in Japanese too ^^

I read it they already recorded Lupin in Japanese, that's why we assumed Lupin would be the B-Side for Mister single.

I wonder if it's due to LQ or if they were asked to sing in that way

I thought that as well :eyelove:

I hope it's due to LQ

Another #1 single from Arashi coming out strong, even I like "Monster" better, Arashi sure will put all of their single in top 10 single of the year.

The #2 single is from one of Arashi member Ohno Satoshi for the drama adaptation of the manga

So that's 2 Arashi single this week.

SKE48's single is also coming out strong at #3, they're getting more and more popular. Probably could match up with other Johnnys in no time.

hmm..i didn't much impressed with the leaked version though...

i hate the autotune..and the voice it's just feels weird for me..

can't comment about the lyrics and pronunciation though...

but yep, i think i'll just wait for the HQ version to came up, and the PV to judge more about it...

i'm still wondering how will they manage their schedule too with japan debut and all of their regular shows in korea..

kara's japan debut looking sketcher and sketcher......

nicole: heroes

hara: IY

gyuri: SSTP

sy & jiyoung: mcing a pet show on mbc?

i dont think dsp plans to have them promote in japan for more than a month at most! or do they expect the girls to keep their commitments flying back and forth from korea to japan?! disappointed. i think if they much some effort into the japanese market it could really pay off for them........

is DSP has that much money? idk.

but arent the japanese would hate kara if they just do their promotions about 1 month,

and then flying back to korea to work on their varieties, or maybe work on their new album *i hope so*

Another #1 for Arashi :) I personally didn't like Monster very much; I actually like To be free better.

Thought Koda Kumi would sell a little better than that, but it was a strong week so it would have been pretty hard.

Wonder how Ayu's sales will be next week since she released her single today :)

I don't really understand what they're planning for Kara in Japan since they're either going to be so busy flying back and forth at least once a week or more, or they're just going to release their single and then come back to Korea immediately (which would really not be good at all :/ especially with the increasing influx of Korean girl groups into Japan).

I totally agree ! A this rate it won't be a surprise to see all their single on the top 10 of the year :P

I love Arashi so much and what amazes me the most about them is the fact that they keep growing stronger and stronger as time goes by

They are together for more than 10 years now and are still the number one artist in Japan !

Yeah, I do agree that mister in japanenes flow back then wanna and japanese. I was always wondering that, are girls wer quiet during the first 2 months, but now it seem like all them have regular schedule. Before, we knew that hara would have to leave IY for a couple episodes, and our goddness would have to leave SSTP. But now nicole has this new program, and I don't know abt ham and jiyoung; so it seem like are the girls not going to promote very long in japan. Cuz SS501 promte their song in japan for almost like 3-4 months, and dbsk is like a year and half. So I just wondering since our girls have regular schedule program, how long are they going to promote in japan. Like nicole she just started heros, and she going to have to leave. Cause i assume that the girls were going to promote in japan for like 3-4 months and come back to korea, but see how our girls have regular schedule, I wondering are they going to travel back and forward (I don't think so, since DSP brought a place for them there).

OHHHH I'm liking the PV preview so far! It looks kinda low-budget but the girls look amazing and THERE'S FINALLY A MUSIC VIDEO FOR MISTER! -throws confetti-

I like the single covers! They're really simple and kind of elegant <3 I like Versioin C the best!

Version C includes the original Korean version of Mister as a bonus track!

how you guys find the mister pv teaser? the military background is apparently omitted, sure it's part of strategy in keeping fans off their seats. arouses mystery, raises eagerness & hence achieves higher results. i had been replaying it for so long now i just love it, hope do the new fans. more sales, more fans & more acknowledgement to the girls.

sharing my earlier post elsewhere here, i understand the concern about their health & japan duration but we fans can only wish that all plans can turn out to be the best for all parties. :o

now with all the commitments in iy, sstp, heroes & iluvpet, believe dsp is leaving the korean the impression that the girls will be back, despite the japan debut which may take weeks/months. the girls are now at the stage where they are to be kept "busying" with programs. given a choice, they would never say no. they should be happy appearing here, there & everywhere, doing what they love. believe be it dsp or the girls themselves, they are working hand-in-hand happily to promote & bring kara to the next level(s). the girls are tired but they are enjoying their prime time too. it can only get better. we are getting worried because we love the girls of being brought down by weariness. as fan we can only support whatever the dsp made & look at the bright side. at least dsp is fighting to bring up kara popularity while providing best possible conditions.

to the girls, stay health, fight hard & remain cheerful

edit: oh i missed the debut single release info posted by leftys_rock, i'll be back.. :thumbup1:

I wonder why the b-side isn't Lupin... since they recorded a Japanese version already. Please don't let Lupin be the next single =/ I want an original song! Maybe Lupin will be the b-side to the next single.

COUNTDOWN TO AUGUST 11TH!! WOOHOO!

I must say Gyuri and Seungyeon looks amazing on the header! And of course Jing, Hara, and Cole looks great but the two unnies just stand out a lot.

I keep on replaying the PV preview haha. It's so addicting :thumbup1:
