f(x) Confirmed to Debut in Japan

SMTOWN recently released a link to f(x)'s Official Japanese Teaser Site through their Facebook:

f(x) JAPAN official TEASER SITEがオープン致しました。今後のアップデート、お楽しみに!

f(x) JAPAN official TEASER SITE has been launched!
Please look forward to the upcoming updates!

The site doesn't have much save for a group profile and a link to their Facebook. But I guess this is an official announcement of sorts. Should've had them debut in China tbh.

I was actually expecting a Chinese debut...I know they've had Victoria speaking Japanese but she already is FLUENT in Mandarin and has a tv show coming out there...so yeah

Plus Amber of course...that's two members who speak

lol your guess is as good as mine.

Bit late, aren't they?

Shouldn't they focus on Korea?!? I would figure they would go to China like EXO-M so then they would have two groups in China and the rest in Japan/Korea
imyoona 28th-Jun-2012 03:41 am (UTC)
its been like 3 years since they debuted. they're pretty established
sweetdary 28th-Jun-2012 02:37 am (UTC)
yeahhhhhhhhhh wiiii finally, i think that they will do good in japan. They signed with avex when suju signed too.

lazmy 28th-Jun-2012 02:48 am (UTC)
considering they have two japanese members this makes a lot of sense!!!!

/screams and falls into a lake.

why not china. omfg.

Having them in China makes technical sense bc of Vic and Amber, but their style is WAY more suited (WAY) for J-pop. And maybe even J-pop over K-pop. Japan will eat their schtick right up whereas they would do nothing for Chinese audiences, honestly. I just can't see their crazy frantic style working in China so while it may seem like a Chinese debut is the more obvious choice, I'll bet they'll earn way more money in Japan than they would in China.

SNSD has most members who can speak and understand Chinese but why didn't they debuted in China instead? I really don't understand it too.
scubajr 28th-Jun-2012 04:25 am (UTC)
No, stay in Korea! Or go to China.

I loove that song ^.^ I got a feeling it'll just be Electric Shock though for some reason
cagallisakura 28th-Jun-2012 05:11 am (UTC)
lol I still think SM is stupid for throwing f(x) into Japan just when their popularity in Korea is finally starting to really pick up. Totally just take them away from rising to the top and throw them in along with a sea of nugus.

"アメリカ系中国人エンバ(Amber)、ビクトリア(Victoria)" lol wat

Ember. O.o
lee_chikin 28th-Jun-2012 09:10 am (UTC)
Oh finally! Weren't they supposed to have their debut in January?
drfaith101 28th-Jun-2012 09:34 am (UTC)
LOL I like the shoutout bb
xalexandriam 28th-Jun-2012 03:51 pm (UTC)
lol I thought you would!

Besides, we need more active members.
asnindie 28th-Jun-2012 12:30 pm (UTC)
F(x) will make it. Their image is enough for old men to fap over and their music is the best from all of SM (sorry Soshi but your K stuff has been shit for two years).
punkylana 28th-Jun-2012 03:05 pm (UTC)
omg good luck to my bbs!
bear100 28th-Jun-2012 04:26 pm (UTC)
Don't go!
I would have liked to see them in China as well.
hugtimes 28th-Jun-2012 05:43 pm (UTC)
ooh, i would like a japanese version of la cha ta or chu please~
fakelunacy 28th-Jun-2012 06:10 pm (UTC)
Isn't' it more logical to go to China instead? They have two Chinese members who can help teach the others but instead they have to learn a whole new language. o_o
neo_valkyrie 29th-Jun-2012 08:36 am (UTC)
While it's true they're popular in China. This Japan debut has been a long time coming so I am all for it.
sergel02 30th-Jun-2012 04:39 pm (UTC)
This isn't the reality I wanted D=
I liked that they were one of the few major groups that hasn't gone there. Was hoping they'd keep it that way.
