BoA looks STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL! But the Japanese version is cringe worthy for me right now. I prefer the Korean version MUCH more! The Korean pronunciation is more accurate with the instrumentals of the song and flows/sounds MUCH better in my opinion. It just sounds right to me...the Japanese not so much.

But what does 'Cocktail' mean? A more creative way of saying 2-sided single?

I may have misunderstood my browser's auto-translation (which is very poor to begin with), but I think it's actually a drink that you can order at some bar -- a cocktail called "Only One."

I think the song works quite well in Japanese! Very pretty.

Hot damn, the pics look amazing! I love her hair with the reddish tint!

As for the song, I think it's on par with the Korean one. I liked the original a lot already haha, but this isn't bad. Some parts are a bit strange to me only because I'm used to the Korean though.

Now for the ultimate question... Being a Japanese release, will we see this on the US iTunes Store? I really wanna buy it!!! Unfortunately, not a single Japanese song of hers exists in the store :(

This song is so beautiful, I loved the Japanese version! I really hope BoA's fans from Japan like it too. It's a song that's so easy to relate that I think it will be well received by her fans and the Japanese people. Anyways, I would like a english version too. And God! The coffee thing is so cool! I never seen something like this before (which makes sense because this is the first time something like this happens LOL) and I could never even imagine it. This is so cool it makes me wanna live in Japan so I can download the song from the coffee XD Great way to promote the song. I'm pretty sure people will be curious about it. I am!

Cool way to promote the song! Can't wait to see her perform on Japanese music shows!

Actually, now that I think about it... She may not be able to as much b/c of Kpop Star? Sigh.

You'd have to order a physical copy or pirate it. Japanese music industry has no plans whatsoever to spread their music worldwide which makes it hard for international fans like myself. I mean there's a chance it won't even be on the Japanese iTunes because the main digital download place for Japan is mu-mo.net
