A Pink to debut in Japan under Japanese company, J-ROCK

Sankei Sports recently reported that the girls will be debuting in Japan soon. The group signed a contract with J-ROCK which is the company that also manages T-ara and B.A.P in Japan.

An insider reported that A Pink will be holding their first solo showcase in Japan’s Stella Ball on August 4th. This showcase will allow the group to build up more fans in Japan which will then lead to their official debut later in fall. It is reported that A Pink is planning to adapt their Korean songs to Japanese versions to gain the interest of fans.

Sankei Sports reported, “Sexy girl groups conquer Korean music, but A Pink has widened the area of innocence. Their clear voices and innocent aura will give them many fans in Japan as well. They’re planning to translate their Korean songs into Japanese to appeal their best points.”

Meh. Japan already has a surplus of groups with the "innocence aura" niche (They're really milking that as a selling point tbh). I doubt they'll stand out that much.
I don't think that it's such a great move considering they're just getting a decent footing in Korea too.

Praying that their pronunciation isn't shite tho.

Should just stick to Korea and grow that way their fandom both in and outside Korea and only go to Japan later when they are a lot more popular overall.

Ah, so it's one of those debuts again! ~.~

I doubt that they will make a huge impact (Japan already has enough girl groups with an "innocent concept"), but maybe they can make some quick money.

BAP are under King Records. The only place I can mention I can find of BAP under J-ROCK are in articles refering to A-Pink's debut. But J-ROCK is such a hard company name to search. e.e

edit: nvm, I found J-ROCKs website, and they do manage BAP: http://www.j-rock.jp/pc/manegement/index.html BAP are under King Records + J-ROCK, T-ara are under EMI Music and J-ROCK.
