Japanese Idols SDN48 To Debut In Korea & Japan Simultaneously

Japanese idol group SDN48 will have their major debut next month on the 24th with their song “GAGAGA”. The song will be released simultaneously in Japan as well as Korea. Their producer Akimoto Yasushi announced it on the 23rd at a hotel in Seoul where the “Asia Music Industry Leaders Forum” was being held.

SDN48 is a sister unit to AKB48 which Akimoto also created. Their debut song was done by a Korean composer and there is a Korean rap also included in the song. Akimoto says it has a strong beat like SNSD, KARA, 4minute and other Korean girl groups. He says it also has a melody that will be stuck in your head. He introduces the concept of the song as, “J-POP that aims to be K-POP”.
