The boy band Choshinsung will debut their new, image-revolutionary single in Japan, with fellow South Korean groups TVXQ, SS501 and Big Bang this September.
The band announced the plan during their last concert at music venue Shibuya O-East in Tokyo, at the end of a three-city tour in Japan. They revealed their decision to return to Japan after playing their older hits to cheering fans.
The band’s new Japanese debut was facilitated through Big Bang, who has previously released records in the country through Universal Music.
The song, “Superstar-Reborn,” is a re-make of an older single. Group leader Yun Hak-eun said, “until now, all of our songs have had a bright, light-hearted image,” referring to the band’s older love ballads.
“Please forget what we were like before now,” he added. “Wait to see a whole new Choshinsung.”
The band’s name means “supernova” in Korean and the group rose to popularity in 2007. They distinguish themselves from other boy bands by donning only formal attire. Their past hits include “Romance” and “Only You Forever.”
The band will release their new single in a large-scale event in Tokyo Sept. 13, with additional exclusive performances on the 25 and 27 in Osaka and Tokyo.
