The South Korean rookie girl group LE SSERAFIM is all set to make its Japan debut. The announcement concerning the latter was made on January 24, 2023. The group has a few TV appearances lined up in Japan where they will release the Japanese version of their debut extended play, ‘Fearless’. Sources suggest that the group is scheduled to make an appearance on January 27, on TV Asahi’s ‘Music Station’. 

The latter-mentioned appearance will mark the official release of the Japanese version of ‘Fearless’. Following ‘Music Station', the group’s next appearance will be on January 30, when the group will appear on CDTV Live. Apart from mainstream music broadcasts, they will also be seen at a variety of other Japanese radio and TV events. As the preparations for their Japanese debut kick-off, fans get a teaser of ‘Fearless’ (Japanese version)

This extended play was released by the rookie girl group on May 2, 2022. The lead single ’Fearless’ has over 138 million views on YouTube. The girls were praised for how well their vocals and moves blended with each other. The song, with its high notes and simple composition, has a sort of minimalistic charm. 

The latter set of traits and the music video’s impeccable visuals are what truly helped the song blow up. With no overly loud electronic music in the background, the song has an element of softness that makes it easy on the ears and subtly addictive. Fearless is also LE SSERAFIM's only release that featured the group’s former member Kim Ga-ram.


The group derives its title from an anagram stemming from the phrase ‘I am Fearless’. This rookie girl group is the brainchild of Hybe Corporation and Source Music. Initially a sextet, the group currently has five members - Sakura, Kim Chae Won, Huh Yun Jin, Kazuha, and Hong Eun Chae. Kim Ga Ram left the group upon the conclusion of her exclusive contract with the company in July 2022.
