No secret K-pop is invading Japan aggressively for the past couple of years. Yet many have enter but only the elite stake claims to Oricon victory.

While K-pop is on the path to globalization thanks to the greatest universal promoting tool of the world music. The whole year of 2011 is a mix blend of dynamic Korean comebacks with Japanese ambition.

While summer Japanese comebacks is coming to an end with TVXQ,2pm, MBLAQ and Big Bang  on the cool down. Winter will keep the coils burning as more K-pop idols bump heads,put on some glitter and try to sing in their best listenable Nihongo.

Shoujo Jidai Mr Taxi Full MV -Japanese-

I find people are having mix reactions to Shoujo Jidai (SNSD/Girls Generation) new song “Mr.Taxi.” Usually an MV can sell a song even more. I find the MV to be very simple and mainly focusing on the girls. Stressing the importance of their individual beauty.  A classic pop group MV with some futuristic themes thrown in. The song isn’t bad bit is it right for J-pop?

Don’t forget Shoujo Jidai Mr.Taxi/Run Devil Run is out

Mr.Taxi Full MV Japanese

SNSD/Shoujo Jidai Mr.Taxi/Run Devil Run Single Album -Japanese-

I’m sorry but I must confess my admiration for SNSD (Shoujo Jidai/Girls Generation). Believe it or not I really like “Mr.Taxi.” Although the beat isn’t fresh but still resonates SNSD’s charms. I don’t know any other K-pop group out their that can surpass SNSD’s success in Japan. Only Kara can compare on bringing forth K-pop to the land of the rising sun. Even though I read comments on how much people hate SNSD. You must give these ladies some credit and respect. They are becoming legends in their own rights. If it wasn’t for them groups like 2ne1 wouldn’t even exist. ***1/2 3 and half stars.
