    Has anyone listened to Kimi Igai? It was played last night on JJANG!KOREA. Looks like it is an upgraded version of Kenchannayo(or perhaps Tomorrow?).
    The song is kinda like mixed of NMB48 and Nogizaka46(?), I'm not sure though, but that song reminded me with them.

    :lol: "Creative producer" is the position with so many says in music choices. Usually, creative producer also regulates how the costume and choreography should be. If he just writes the lyric, he's lyricist, not "creative producer".

    Your condescending attitude again ....
    So writing isn't creating ? that's new !

    You didn't even read the article ....
    Look again ! I never wrote he is "just" a lyricist.

    For me:
    Love Bubble > Kimi Igai > Vampire > Shigaisen Nanka Buttobase

    Fresh from the oven

    Tbh, putting Love Bubble in this release really makes other jpn songs just like some low-tier quality.

    ^I'm convinced they recorded Love Bubble in Korea. To make my point clear, it's not even whether we think the tracks in Vampire are good or not, the sound quality is just different. An analogy is like Love Bubble has Blu-Ray quality, while the Japanese ones are like VHS. It's as if AKS runs some decades old dinosaur equipment in their recording studio.

    Yup, when you compared their Japanese track Neko ni Naritai JPN version with the KOR version, the songs feel so different. Although those are the same one(except the lyrics), but their Korean version are really better than the Japanese version (in term of sound quality)

    Tbh Love bubble doesn't sound really good in the above video either from sound perspective. Not sure but I noticed that when AKS put teasers or MVs on youtube(izone and 48,46G) they degrade the sound quality by purpose because you'd be giving away music for free basically. However if you listen to songs on the actual album via physical or digital they sound much better. I don't think OTR or other Korean agencies do it though...

    From what I knew it's not the uploader, but Yt downgraded itself.

    Have listened to Fushigi Lucy. The song is good and bad at once.
    In fact, it is not bad, just sometimes it sounded weird to me

    Over 100k is safe for Izone especially money wise.
    I just think they need a big hit and most important thing is to be big in Korea.

    I don't think so. K-pop agencies eye on Japanese market for concert/fanmeet, not so much CD sale. I believe the income from the 1st Japan tour can top the income from all 3 Japanese singles combined.

    It depends who are "they". For Sakura and Nako, it's possibly better to hit big in Japan. Kara vs. Girls' Generation showed popularity in Korea and Japan wasn't tightly correlated. Girls' Generation was much bigger in Korea to the point of titled "national" girl group but, Kara sold much better in Japan.
