1. HEART TO HEART (JAPANESE VERSION)

4minute in Japan had been releasing singles and the main track were giant club bangers so HEART TO HEART is a little twist to the fans of them because it’s more poppy and lighter than songs like “FIRST” and “WHY” but I like the original Korean take of it for sure but the Japanese one is quite nice as well.  I mean the good English hooks are still there and the chorus is still damn catchy and with the language switch I felt a little more comfortable with this one…I like it.

2. YOU KNOW (KOREAN VERSION)

Unfortunately like their previous few singles, especially “WHY”, the rest of the singles is full of their Korean songs from “4minutes Left” which is pretty damn annoying to see a bunch if not all the songs originally from that here.  Starting with You know, I still love this song a lot since it’s not hard but not poppy like “HEART TO HEART”.  Plus it’s kind of cute for a song that basically says there’s no one else like you…meaningful and one of my favorite tunes from the group.

3. BADLY (KOREAN VERSION)

I didn’t know what track was this because it seems when the track is written in Korean it goes into it’s English translation when it goes to a JPN singles.  This is Nappeuge and this was a pretty interesting slow R&B tune from the group since it felt so relaxed.  I was a little taken aback when I heard accordion join in the song but I grew into liking the track for being what it is.

4. HEART TO HEART (KOREAN VERSION)

Yeah, no surprise that the single would come with the original version of the A-side.  The Korean version of Heart to Heart has a lot of punch even though the song isn’t calling for that but I still enjoy this song because it has a lot personality and JiHyun just sounds orgasmic…then again she sounds powerful in any song let’s be honest XD. 

5. MIRROR MIRROR (KOREAN VERSION)

To me Geoura Geoura is definitely the booty poppin song on the single and even though it’s still Korean, I doubt they could pull off a JPN version if they tried.  Still this song is catchy and the chorus with them repeating ~geoura geoura~ is quite catchy as hell.  Yeah this is pretty awesome of a song and is still my second favorite after “You know”.

6. SWEET SUGA HONEY! (KOREAN VERSION)

Of the songs from their Korean album, Sweet Suga Honey! was and is still one of my least favorite songs from the group because it’s way poppy and it didn’t really suit the members really.  Like I said before, HyunA’s rap just did not work here either and made the song worse by doing that.  Lame song!

7. FIRST (KOREAN VERSION)

The only song that I would’ve expected to have seen on a JPN release somehow is the Korean take of FIRST.  I really think FIRST sounds a little different than the JPN version for some reason but I think it’s because of the lyrics and how they’re sung.  They even took out some of the English lyrics to put in some Korean and it feels VERY awkward to listen to.  It just didn’t work being reversed like that and I just rolled my eyes for this version.

 

 

Really 4minute?  Another single was an absurd amount of already released Korean songs and only one true Japanese song (and at that, a JPN remake of Heart to Heart).  I liked HEART TO HEART no doubt but as a whole this single feels a lot like “WHY” as a presentation and I’m sorely disappointed.  Luckily there’s only a few Korean songs left to really shove on a JPN release sooooo…who knows…
