The group consists of the girls from “WEATHER GIRLS”, a weather forecast group on internet TV in Taiwan. Unlike other weather forecasts, the girls on “WEATHER GIRLS” dance around in various outfits during the report.
After some Japanese programs such as “Tokudane!”, “Mezamashi TV”, and “Nonstop!” introduced them one back in April, the girls caught attention in Japan and led to their debut, and the 7 cute members, who are skilled in singing and dancing, were chosen for the group.
Their debut song titled “Koi no Tenki Yohou“, a pop dance track, will be released under PONY CANYON on October 17th, and has been produced by Jeff Miyahara, who has worked with various artists.
The leader of the group, YUMI, commented, “Our dream is to appear on NHK’s Kohaku Uta Gassen. We would like to make an appearance on weather report programs in Japan as well.”
The group will be making an appearance as the opening act at the “a-nation musicweek”, which will be held on August 10th at Yoyogi National Gymnasium, to perform their debut song.
