UFZS to debut in Korea

It was recently announced that UFZS will be making their debut in South Korea. Their producer DJtaba, said that UFZS has reached their first milestone in the front line as a K-pop dance cover team. And that UFZS’s next step will be to have Korean songs made by Korean artists. And he approached a Korean duo, who debuted in Japan, Tensi Love to provide them with two original songs.

Excuse me while I have a mini heart attack. I am am beyond  thrilled and excited for thi news. Finally my beloved Akari will finally get to make music again, instead of just covering dances. I honestly didn’t think she’d get the chance again to release a single. I am so happy for her. I don’t even mind that she’s releasing songs in Korea and not Japan. I’m just happy she gets to release a song. So could be releasing something in Brazil and I’d be just as excited.

A lot of people are completely dooming this before it even happens. However, I am not at all. I know that UFZS has an uphill battle, and it’s going to be extremely difficult. But I think they could actually do it. Korean idols have been extremely successful in Japan. Why can’t it be the other way around as well? People will probably say that Korea is more into sexy instead of cute. Which is completely true. A lot of artsits like SNSD and Super Junior are trying to mature their sound because of it. However, it’s also only true to an extent. Listen to Orange Caramel. Their whole theme is cute. Or any recent Secret or Girl’s Day songs. Secrets’s Shy Boy and Starlight Moonlight are completely adroable. As are Girl’s Day’s Twinkle Twinkle and Hug Me Once. Both have the same cutesy sounds that Jpop has. Even T-ara’s Roly Poly was cute sounding. And I don’t see those groups failing because of it. Just last year SNSD released the very cutesy Oh. And if being cutesy was going to hurt them, then why do male Kpop fans go crazy over aegyo?

So, I wouldn’t bet on their failure so easily. And even if they do fail. At least they tried and at least they did something. Would it be better if they were simply a Kpop dance cover group forever?

One thought on “UFZS to debut in Korea”

  1. Well, I understand what you’re saying, but I think that while cuteness is appreciated in the Korean idol scene, it is a slightly different kind of cuteness. When I watch Korean PVs their cuteness is definitely there, but there’s still the assertion that they’re not little kids. I’m really not sure how to articulate this properly, but when Japanese idols try to emphasize their cuteness, it’s in a more childish way. Sort of like their selling point is their child-like innocence, but when the Korean idols do it, it’s a more mature cuteness.

    I think that if they were older they might fare a bit better. (Although I really don’t see why they can’t debut under H!P and be the newest fiercest group, but w/e lol)
