The group perhaps most responsible for shifting the Overton window of sexy towards ‘encouraged” will be making its comeback in a couple of weeks. SISTAR is coming to wreck shit, yo.
SISTAR could have called it quits after 2012 and K-Pop would still be forever in their debt. Through a mixture of sexiness and smiles, SISTAR’s influence on K-Pop has extended far and fans of AOA and Girl’s Day as well as pretty much half the girl group release over the past two years can point to SISTAR as their inspiration. By the looks of things, SISTAR isn’t quite ready to cede their signature style to anyone else yet and we should all bow our heads in thanks.
Also, for those who are hoping to get a break from Brave Brothers releases, there’s some news to be thankful for on that end as well. SISTAR’s frequent producer will not be involved in the group’s upcoming comeback (presumably because Brave Sounds has been busy producing for everyone else in K-Pop right now).
According to an exclusive by OSEN, SISTAR will not work with their go-to producers Brave Brothers and Duble Sidekick this time around and will instead team up with composersRado and Choi Kyu Sung for their new song.
Considering that SISTAR hasn’t worked with Brave Brothers for their last two summer releases (“Give It to Me” and “Loving U”), this may not be that surprising.
What is definitely not surprising is that July is gonna be a good month.
Girl’s Day returns on July 14th. Exactly one week after that SISTAR returns with a similar concept (by the looks of things here). No matter who ends up on top of the charts, humanity wins.
