Yeah, you read right! All credit goes to The Korea Herald
You know what… this isn’t half bad. It’s actually not bad at all. Little Mix‘s Korean is on point, and although I’ve seen these girls all around Tumblr I never listened to their stuff before this- their vocals are tight! Read The Korea Herald‘s article on Little Mix and their Korean version of hit track Wings below. I’ve also included the actual audio so check that out and lemme know what you think. I wonder if this’ll start a surge of non Korean groups creating Kpop songs? That could be really cool, but at the same time it would throw a lot off- we’re talking about a total paradigm shift here, and I don’t know how I feel about that just yet. We shall see! Little Mix are on it though!
British girl group Little Mix released a Korean-language, digital version of their hit single “Wings” on Monday amid 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.
Korean TV shows and pop music, known as K-pop, have secured hordes of fans in Asia, Europe and the Americas in recent years.
Little Mix, the winners of last year’s “X Factor,” a popular TV audition program in Britain, have gone straight to the top of the U.K. chart with their single “Wings.” (Yonhap News)
