Scans from a mag called K★Star Lovers, vol 2, with dance moves and makeup tips. Might be just the pages with Azusa.

Reckon this is the mag: http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B005I5FJNA/

 :heart: !
They may not have made it further in the competition, but for J-idols they are pretty damn good. Why can't they debut as a proper group?? I don't understand. They're cute, they have talent, this Kpop choreography learning has made their moves sharper etc. I wish they were H!P and not... idk. Low budget floaters D:

The biggest problem is that for Kpop, they still sing too "nice". Sengoku's rapping sounded like she was talking to puppies. Like when she's supposed to fiercely go "COME ON! >:|" she goes like "come on~~ ^____^" But THIS WOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM IF THEY DEBUTED AS A J-IDOL GROUP and didn't do this Kpop cover thing.

LOL

I'm a little bummed yeah. I see all this greatness and it earns them nothing. Wut.

Moved this from the news section to make it their official thread ^^

I'd just like to remind that there are more random videos at their niconico:
http://ch.nicovideo.jp/channel/up_front_girls

With the videos of Konatsu and Ayanon practicing dances... Konachan's butt looks great in those pants, let me say :lol:

Wow, that's some exciting news!

Even though they didn't win the K3 Japan audition, they're going to be learning Korean and trying to make it there anyway!
Two original songs, huh?

No wonder Akari thought at first it might've been a prank!

Unfortunately, I think Maana's teeth and Sekii's nose might be enough to hold them back in the Korean market.

Not knowing much about Kpop myself, can anyone else shed any light onto what the Korean market might accept or not accept?

Based on the kpop girl groups I've seen... Lookswise... There is only one very popular group with "ugly" members (as in, non-cut eyes) and that is 2ne1. And they often have a very edgy or colourful styling to make up for it. But even they have perfect teeth. Everyone has perfect teeth.

Then again, it might not matter that our Japanese ladies are imperfect if they are advertised as a Japanese group and the target audience understands that they come from a different culture (where wonky teeth are cute and perfectly acceptable etc). Since Morning Musume etc. have some fanbase in Korea as well, they can't all have been completely brainwashed by manufactured perfection :lol:

I hope that the Egg training of the girls will be mentioned when they try to make it. Korea has a lot of respect for girls who train for years before debut. It's always such a big deal "this and that person trained for SEVEN YEARS before debuting!" For 1st gen Eggs, it has been 7 years... Of course, Korean training machinery is very different from Eggs, since they are training for an American type pop career with the power house singing and sexy choreographies. But still, it'd be worth a mention.

IDK I think the girls will still have to work very hard to reach the kind of level that would gain attention in Korea, but with good songs and image they might do relatively alright. I'm not sure how serious their management really is about this. They'd really have to give the girls more budget if they want them to have a chance. Then again, production costs might be cheaper in Korea, I dunno??

I really don't like that autotuned track they want the girls to cover, but Korea seems to love autotune so who knows. The 2nd track sounded better.

I'm super curious about what their original tracks would sound like. Would they actually go for a Kpop sound, or would it be J-idol pop sung in Korean :?
