Little Mix releases Korean version of Wings

UK girl group Little Mix who found fame as winners of the 2011 UK X Factor, today released a Korean language version of their hit song Wings.

Translated to and titled as 날개 in Korea, the verses are sung in Korean while the chorus remains in English.

You can listen to the first minute of the song here.

The single has been released as a result of the global boom of Korean pop culture, its local music distributor said.

“Little Mix members, who have much interest in Korean culture, were greatly impressed by a cover video of their song from SBS TV’s ‘K-pop Star,’ ” Sony Music Entertainment Korea Inc. said, referring to a local television audition program.

“So we suggested them to sing the song in Korean and release it worldwide, and that’s how the Korean version of the ‘Wings’ was born,” the company said.

The digital single can be purchased here on the online Korean music store Melon (basically like a Korean iTunes).

Here’s the video of the girls that covered the song on K-pop Star

Funny, I was just listening to their (flawless) DNA unplugged performance.
Hows their pronounciation, native speakers?

They're not bad. The arrangement is abit off for me though.

I love all their unplugged perfs.
I enjoyed their album.
But lol why.

I wish kpop would come out with songs that are upbeat and fun but can still showcase the group's singing ability to the fullest. Then again, they also would need a group like little mix where all members can belt out.

I don't really liked the song but this is better than everything girl groups released this year, that's actually sad.
