Japanese music largely bores me...except maybe U-KISS's Japanese albums and a few SNSD songs...

b1a4 tho...

i don't even like tvxq, but tohoshinki as 5 and a duo is where it's at.

I just realized that Kyuhyun is probably the "visual" of SuJu KRY...

Anyway, the song sounds nice if a little boring. I guess all those rumblings about KRY activities must have been true, just not in the way we expected. Unless they will release something in Korea, but somehow I doubt it.

LOL, I can picture Kyuhyun silently nodding to that statement. Although I'm also biased and think Yesung is looking hotter each day.

I hope that if they're successful in Japan it'll open more doors for them as a vocal trio. Whether that means a long overdue Korean album or a stronger focus in Japan remains to be seen.
strawberry_efeu 22nd-Nov-2012 08:28 am (UTC)
Well, I would be okay with a Japanese album. It's kind of obvious Japan likes them more than Korea and it would be nice if they got popular there. Though, of course, Korean promotions are always more fun~
carmine_pink 22nd-Nov-2012 08:35 am (UTC)
It'd definitely be nice, plus K-Pop's pride of their acts "making it" in Japan might actually help increase their star power back home.
the_erotomanic 22nd-Nov-2012 08:07 am (UTC)
they performed with a live band. that's not a usual suju setup. did something happen to yesung's mic? i could hardly hear his adlibs at the end.

the song sounds nice enough. it's definitely propelled by kry's lovely voices.
allegsiseu 22nd-Nov-2012 08:32 am (UTC)
literally the only form of super junior, outside of m, that is relevant to me.

the song may be basic, but the vocals are so amazing you can't turn it off.

I've been sat in a dark corner of 'What about SJM' for a few days.

But if it is just a single, and not an album, I have doubts they'd really promote it. KRY has a bit more sell-ability in Japan but SJ's Japan efforts are lazy at best.
carmine_pink 22nd-Nov-2012 08:43 am (UTC)
Funny how I've had "What about KRY" moments in the past as well. :) To each their own, I guess.
sobaek 22nd-Nov-2012 08:50 am (UTC)
I've had a bit of both tbh. KRY is way, way overdue and I kinda do hope they do get a full album and a bit of promotion time but because those members are in other active units that are currently recording and have been promising fans an album for about....a year (Mi started promising an album this year in February) it's just a bit weird to think SM couldn't have spaced out the activities and...organised these releases a bit better.

Like...are KyuWook going to be run ragged promoting in two different units, in two different countries and two different non-native languages back to back? It makes a lot of sense to revive some sub-units while members are going off to military but I'd...schedule their activities a bit better. Not that this is ~going to happen~, just hypothetically, but one group is going to have to compromise. And it's probably going to be KRY. And that sucks because fans have been waiting for a KRY album since the dawn of time.

Reminds me of Perfection released in Japan and sold 16,000 units on the first week....

Well, SM is making SJ underrated in Japan, though SJ is trying Japan since the time Hallyu isn't that large enough until three years later. They started from their Japanese Premium Live in 2008 and released two special singles.

Lmao I burst out laughing

But yes that is really awk. Just hope they don't complete the hair color/logo color trifecta...
carmine_pink 23rd-Nov-2012 02:32 am (UTC)
Oh lol I just realized the hair/logo colors.

Actually reminds me of:

... Damn, SME.

KRY is the vocal powerhouse that Korea will probably never fully appreciate, unlike Japan, who is known to have vocal powerhouses like Kalafina.

Koreans debuting in Japan have, generally, been rather unimpressive to me so I hope KRY can change that because I really, really do love this combi.

I have been out of this fandom for so long orz
xxhna 22nd-Nov-2012 12:53 pm (UTC)
KRY! I wish them luck! Japan is the main music field these days.

izabera 22nd-Nov-2012 05:07 pm (UTC)
I want KRYS with Sungmin added for this project, the Japanese like him and his voice is almost as good as KRY

and less boring songs please
