Taiwanese singer Yao Yao covers KARA’s Honey
Taiwanese singer has Yao Yao (郭书瑶) released a song that sounds very familiar.
The song is a cover of KARA’s Honey. As a popular Taiwanese artist, she wanted to try something that people would love. And to portray the sweet feeling of the song, Yao Yao had to spend 40 hours filming in a cream coated evening dress, with the air-con at full blast since the heat from the lighting equipment would melt the cream.
Ahead of her album release on August 21st, she released her title song on July 29th to give her fans a preview. She sounds similar to the original since she has a cutesy voice like the girls. She sings the song in Mandarin but obviously the melody won’t be new for you guys.
Korean netizens have actually expressed their fondness of the song saying that it’s not as good as the original but it’s still very cute.
She will start promotions with Honey soon. I’m sure she sounds fine but I don’t understand why she wants to promote with a cover song?
