With the release of their album "Sound-G" in August, the 4 member Korean girl group Brown Eyed Girls have planned to release their debut Japanese single on January 26 2011.
Originally the title track from the previously mentioned Sound-G repackage album, the Japanese version of "Sign" was chosen to be their first single. The song's lyrics reflects the trembling feelings of a woman's heart upon a crisp and beautiful melody. The coupling track will feature a cover of the theme song for the TV drama "Stairway to Heaven" by Kim Bum Soo called "Aitai (Bogoshipda)" in Japanese.
There will be 4 types - Limited Edition A, B, C and a Regular Edition. Limited Edition A will feature the music video and behind the scenes footage on a DVD. Limited Edition B will include the group's latest photographic calendar while Limited Edition C will feature the karaoke version of Sign and an alternate jacket. Fans will be sure to look forward to this!
And if you haven't seen the original version of Sign, here it is.

BRB SHAKING AND CRYING, I AM HAVING A BEG OVERLOAD. TAKE MY MONEY PLZ. And I am really happy that they're choosing to promote Sign as a proper single. My only concern is the places in Sign where the melody is quite high and when it's sung in Japanese, it'll somehow get higher due to how Japanese language is. This happened in Abracadabra's Japanese version and I hope it won't change the tone of the song too much. :s
