I saw the Japan Times mention "we don't even want to count KARA as a K-Pop act anymore, since their transformation to AKB48-clone seems to be complete, both image-wise and music-wise".

While I don't agree 100% with everything they said in there, it is definitely true that they've gotten rid of most of their K-Pop style. Ah well.

New Certifications!

Jet Coaster Love is now Platinum for Chaku Uta Full (was Gold), which, combined with its Gold for PC, makes for a total of over 350,000 downloads.

Go Go Summer is now Gold for Chaku Uta Full! These are July certifications, so figures should be going up ; )

^ That's not that weird. Arashi also released Dear Snow in October and you see more seasonal songs being released before the actual season : P

Besides, despite the fact winter doesn't start until December 22nd, I guess plenty of people already see all of December as Winter... or a snowy season. Plus "Autumn Magic" or "Fall Magic" hardly sounds appealing : P

^

haha, you're right


But I'm pretty sure Winter Magic won't be released in Korea (doesn't sound like a Korean thing/song) so that's a good thing

Because its longevity throughout the winter season will be like "magic".


K, I better stop there...

another jumping is what they should be aiming for imo. it was the perfect fusion between their K-Pop style and classic j-pop/eurobeat. their 2011 singles are good but just TOO J-Pop imo, they need to keep that k-pop edge.

In terms of style, I agree.

From a company's point of view, never.
