YG artists G-Dragon and TOP will be revealing their first Japanese single under their sub-unit in November. The single’s title track will be a Japanese version of “Oh Yeah” which features 2NE1’s Bom as an extra vocalist. “High High” was said to be included into the tracklist as well. Both songs had their lyrics revised for a Japanese release, and were made to fit to the original one as much as possible. Both songs were originally featured on GD&TOP’s debut album.
The Big Bang unit made it easier for both its members to put out music that wouldn’t be fitting for the whole group. Their first album was revealed last December and was well received by the Korean fans.
On the 12th, SBS aired the Chuseok special of Dalgona and Sooyoung of SNSD was a guest of this episode. Her first love, Jang Yik Hyeon, also appeared. Jang’s looks has drawn attention from the public because he apparently resembles Big Bang’s T.O.P.
Hearing how Jang looks like T.O.P, comedian Byeon Ki Soo commented to Sooyoung, “You look like Han Ga In then.”
It has been awhile since Jang saw Sooyoung. He revealed, “I was mesmerized by Sooyoung. I was trying hard to concentrate with my studies but she still caught my attention,” which made the people in the set laugh.
He elaborated, “It was only during a school picnic that I confessed while playing the “truth” game. However, Sooyoung refused my confession.”
