The five-man group Paran will become the first Korean singing group to record a song in Thai, to begin activities in Thailand. The group’s debut song “First Love” will be released in the Thai language late this month. The music video of the song has already been produced in the Thai language and aired throughout southeast Asia through music channels.
Earlier, the group attended the 2006 Virgin Hitz Asia Awards in Thailand last October to promote itself, and in November, released its first album in Korean, which soon grabbed the top spot of the country’s album charts.
“We have succeeded in gaining some recognition in Thailand, but it is not enough,” a member of Paran said. “We thought that it is important to sing in a local language to appeal to local people, so we decided to record a song in Thai.”
