K-pop group sings opening theme for Japanese soap



K-pop girl group 4minute are the artists behind the opening theme for a new Japanese soap.

4minute's song "Why" features on the soundtrack for the Japanese drama "Akutou: Juuhanzai Sousahan (Villains: Felony Investigation Team)," which first aired on Asahi TV, Jan. 21.

"'Why' is an electronic dance number armed with a super-tense beat," said 4minute's agent, Cube Entertainment, Jan. 24. "The members' powerful tone well matches the intense action and fast-paced plot development of the detective drama series."

The series stars Katsunori Takahashi, 45, who plays Togashi, a police detective described as the "most powerful antihero ever." His felony investigation unit goes to all lengths to complete their investigations, even committing blackmail, violence, and deceiving their superiors.

4minute debuted in Japan last May, and is set to release a single there March 2 which will include the track "Why." The track has created a buzz amongst fans, who have been listening to a preview since Jan. 19.

4minute is currently recording their next Korean album.



포미닛, 日 드라마 삽입곡 불러

여성그룹 포미닛이 일본 드라마 삽입곡을 불렀다.

포미닛은 지난 21일 첫 방송된 일본 아사히TV '악당-중범죄 수사반(惡黨-重犯罪搜査班)'의 오프닝 테마곡 '와이(WHY)'를 노래했다.

소속사인 큐브엔터테인먼트는 24일 "'와이'는 긴장감 넘치는 비트로 무장한 일렉트로닉 댄스곡"이라며 "멤버들의 강렬한 음색이 수사극의 화려한 액션, 빠른 전개와 잘 어우러졌다"고 말했다.

지난해 5월 일본 가요계에 데뷔한 포미닛은 3월 2일 일본에서 '와이'가 포함된 새 싱글을 발매하며 현재 국내에서 발표할 신보를 녹음하고 있다.
