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).
