Today it was announced that popular South Korean multi-entertainment group SUPER JUNIOR will make their first appearance in a Japanese commercial in addition to news that they’re releasing a Japanese version of “BONAMANA” in June.
Their commercial will be for the popular convenience store chain “Circle K Sunkus” that currently operates 6,257 stores throughout Japan. The members are going to promote the chain’s “South Korea Fair” that will be held in all stores from May 17th to June 13th. During that time you will be able to purchase various special products such as onigiri filled with bulgogi and other Korean dishes. The commercial will start airing on the 17th.
SUPER JUNIOR will also provide the theme song for the commercial, “Bijin“, a Japanese version of their hit song “BONAMANA”. That song will also become the first Japanese single that is going to become available in digital form on May 18. The CD release is going to follow on June 8th.
It is said that the recording with the Japanese lyrics back in March wasn’t much of a problem for the members and the commercial, that was actually already filmed in February, was almost done in one take, underling the professionalism and versatility of the group.
The group commented, “We hope that you will get to know as a bit more through our appearance in the commercial and our song ‘Bijin (BONAMANA)’.”
The group is also going to participate in the “The 4th K-Pop Super Live” concert in Chiba on May 15th.
