NEWS さくらガール/ Sakura Girl single has been postponed to one week later..

Just letting you guys know.. in case you didn't already.  I hope this is ok.. >.<;

"Johnny’s Entertainment group NEWS was scheduled to release their single さくらガール/ Sakura Girl on March 24th, which happens to be the date in which TVXQ is scheduled to drop their new single Toki Wo Tomete / Let’s Stop Time.

After some discussions, NEWS has decided to delay their release of Sakura Girl by a week. A JRA (Japan Record Association) representative stated, “The reason for the delay by NEWS is probably because they’re afraid to go head to head with TVXQ in sales and on the charts. NEWS has had 11 straight #1’s on the Oricon and that streak could very well be broken if they faced off against TVXQ. For NEWS sake, it was wise for them to make this decision."

P.S:  I'm a HUGEEEEE NEWS fan.. (have been for 6yrs~)
Honestly, I don't even listen to TVXQ despite being a huge kpop fanatic. lol
This upsets me but it is a wise marketing decision.. :P

P.P.S: Yesasia seems to have confirmed this news as well! :3  Oh well..its ok.. a week later isn't really a big deal anyway~ :)
