f(x) to take “Hot Summer” to Japan next month

K-pop female idols f(x) will heat up the summer season in Japan by releasing “Hot Summer” ringtone.

An official from SM Entertainment rep told the magazine in a phone interview Thursday that the Japanese version of f(x)’s “Hot Summer” ringtone will become available in the country next month.

“f(x) will first meet their fans in Japan with the ringtone but the date of its release is still in discussions as well as their official debut in Japan,” the official added.

Last month, the girls hinted on the new official Japanese website that they were gearing up to expand their singing careers into Japan.

“Hot Summer” is the title track listed in the repackaged version of their first full-length album “PINOCCHIO” released last year.

The song has placed within the top tier of various online music charts and helped the girls score several wins on major televised music programs.

the function of x?
liime_arix 19th-Jul-2012 08:20 pm (UTC)
Just FX.

haha your question reminds me of my sis. She actually call them 'function' -- making me doubt of how to actually pronounced their group's name since I always call them FX since the very beginning. :>

If I remember correctly, it's pronounced as "effects"
wasabisushi404 20th-Jul-2012 06:35 pm (UTC)

Hot Summer isn't a bad song to launch with imo. Chu and NuAbo are other good choices.

Also not here for hallyu wave shade.

I wonder if they'll still included the bit about sweaty foreigners in the song.

I remember during that part at SMTown NYC Sulli said that line and pointed to the audience and my friends and I were "eh? aren't you the foreigner??" lol.

erm, in a way I'm excited but at the saaaame time it's either a hit or a huge miss. I'm going to wait for the 2 tons of bricks for them to be thrown at because of their pronunciation

I'm not going to lie, I will probably die if they release a Japanese version of Danger. their voices sound just too...childish and some freaking anime girl trying to talk to a guy 'cutely' ugh. I'll pass on that single

All I say is good luck.
sweetdary 20th-Jul-2012 02:26 am (UTC)
i think their second single will be NUABO or Chu and their last remake will be electric shock.
andreeupandaway 20th-Jul-2012 03:23 am (UTC)
I won't mind a remake of Electric Shock. it's a really great song
curisuti 20th-Jul-2012 04:32 am (UTC)
HECK YES!! I don't mind if they don't promote in Japan, I just want to sing this in Japanese at karaoke LOL~ Very excited :D
yuma_daisuki 20th-Jul-2012 06:19 am (UTC)
Hope they make it big~ GO AMBERRRR!!!

liime_arix 20th-Jul-2012 01:40 pm (UTC)
It's a remake of that song.
sweetdary 20th-Jul-2012 06:46 pm (UTC)
