[SINGLE] Bolero - 3:17 PREVIEW + Movie OST Info

A new longer preview of Bolero (TBR on January 21st) was released on Bigeast Station.

For pre-order information, go here.


BOLERO is going to be a Japanese movie's OST! {EDIT 2} This information is not cofirmed it seems, as the post made on DNBN (Cassiopeia's official forum) was removed because a legitimate source couldn't be tracked down. Also the release date of the single and the movie have a gap. However, I have seen mentions of this OST on some Japanese fan sites myself so I can't be sure. IT IS NOW CONFIRMED!

The movie is called "Subaru", set to release next year on March 20th, 2009 and it seems to have a diverse set of stars and production crew from Japan, Korea and China. Japanese actress Meisa Kuroki plays the female lead ballerina and and Korean actress Go Ara plays her rival. Sounds pretty exiting!

About "Subaru" (Anime News Network):

Warner Bros. Japan announced that it is producing a joint Japanese/Chinese film adaptation of Masahito Soda's Subaru manga about a budding ballerina. Actress and model Meisa Kuroki (Vexille's titular character, Crows Zero's RUKA) has already been filming on location in Shanghai with director Lee Chi-Ngai since October 28, after an earlier Tokyo shoot in September. The film's partners are planning a simultaneous 2009 opening throughout Asia, and are also hoping for releases in Europe and America.

The manga centers on Subaru (Kuroki) and her twin brother, both of whom love ballet and constantly visit ballet classes to watch the dancers. One day, the brother is bed-stricken by a brain tumor. While visiting her brother in the hospital, Subaru meets a formerly famous ballerina (Kaori Momoi) who was forced to give up dancing due to her declining physical condition. The former ballerina agrees to train Subaru to perhaps achieve her own ballet dreams.

The manga's 11 volumes have sold 1.8 million copies in Japan. The manga has yet to be released in North America, although it has been publishing in France, Germany, and Spain. Kuroki has been training for three hours nearly every day since June for her role, while Momoi is already a trained ballerina since she spent three years studying abroad at London's Royal Ballet School when she was 12

The song fits perfectly for it. Espcially if you read the translation of the song below, you will understand why. "I saw you dancing on the moon's stage" ... "Soar high, you will discover a place that will even heal your sadness"

In the movie, beautiful actress Go Ara (also under SM Entertainment and featured in DBSK's HUG music video) will play the main character's biggest competitor (rival), a talented ballerina. The origins of Ara's character was especially changed from Japan to Korea. More info on Go Ara's role here.

Meisa Kuroki, the female lead, is a well-known Japanese actress that starred in popular dramas such as One Pound Gospel, and has also worked on many Japanese movies. A special one to note would be the one she starred in with Jang Geun Suk, "One Missed Call: Final".

Looks like these two hazel-eyed actresses are gonna make this movie a hit!

the song's so, so pretty~! it's really perfect for the winter.
this version is different from the recorded version at the music program, though. is the song over 5 minutes long? that might explain why there are no repetitions between the 2-minute and 3-minute versions of it.

Thanks for posting the link!

sweetkimchi said...

This is a beeeeeaauuuuutiful song!!! It definitely suits the movie or at least from what I hear the movie's about. It kind of reminds me of "Insa" somehow. Maybe because of how sad the music and melody is. But I can't wait for it to be released! DBSK fighting!!!

The clip of them fighting is from Gold Fish - a parody skit that Jaejoong and Micky acted in. Its quite hilarious, I would highly recommend anyone to watch it! (its actually quite oppsite to the feeling that this video brings with that scene lol)

The download to the episode is available in the Downloads section under video.
