The Japanese audience will get to know more about the girls than through a mini concert in the SHIBUYA-AX and a 「Konnichiwa, 4minute desu」.
While waiting the beginning of their promotions on May 1st, several Japanese magazines will – or have already done so – release interviews and, in some cases, pictorials shot for the occasion. Here goes the current list :
Magazine title – Release date
ODINA – April 5th
Nikkei Entertainment – April 3rd
Pia Hanryu – March 26th
WPK 2010 SPRING – March 25th
TV Guide – March 24th
KEJ (Special Vol. 13) – ? (already released)
Besides, the Japanese branch of Korean cable channel Mnet will air several footage of the girls. Between March 16th and March 30th, a special corner will be dedicated to 4minute via the show Mnet「k-girl project」. The broadcasting date and hour are yet to be revealed. Moreover, an episode of another upcoming show, 「NO CUT STORY 2」, will feature the girls in a more intimate way ; the airing is set for April 21st.
With such featuring on both paper and screen, it looks as if the girls are currently active in Japan and that their promotions have already started. Their Japanese promotions in May will actually end their busy Asian touring which looks, for the moment to be successful.
Remember that you can already preorder a version of the Japanese single 「Muzik」 which is set for release on May 5th.
