Ever since Girl’s Day‘s debut, K-Pop fans all across the board always thought that their cutesy concepts and loveable images would do well in Japan’s music market. The theory was finally put to a test, as on December 10, Girl’s Day finally held their first live concert in Japan!
The girls performed at the Shibuya O-East in Tokyo, Japan, and presented a fun-filled two hour concert brimming with their characteristic “aegyo (cute charms).” Over 1,200 fans showed up for the event, with 65% of them being male. Despite never having promoted in Japan, the audience followed along to all of their hit tracks, including “Twinkle Twinkle,” “Nothing Lasts Forever,” and “Don’t Let Your Eyes Wander” in Korean.
Girl’s Day sang nearly 20 songs all live along with their respective choreographies. About 200 Japanese industry officials from the fashion, CF, and media outlet industries also watched from the audience with interest.
One music industry official said, “I had no idea that Girl’s Day’s Japanese popularity would be this hot. Not only are they visually outstanding, but all five members have such diverse charms. I’m sure that if they contract with a Japanese company, they’ll be met with big success.”
Girl’s Day concluded the concert with their OST track, “If I Can Give You Your Heart,” crying tears of joy. Their encore was a sweet and romantic Santa Clause version of “Twinkle Twinkle” in time for the festive season.
