UK girl group Little Mix who found fame as winners of the 2011 UK X Factor, today released a Korean language version of their hit song Wings.

Translated to and titled as 날개 in Korea, the verses are sung in Korean while the chorus remains in English.

You can listen to the first minute of the song here.

The single has been released as a result of the global boom of Korean pop culture, its local music distributor said.

“Little Mix members, who have much interest in Korean culture, were greatly impressed by a cover video of their song from SBS TV’s ‘K-pop Star,’ ” Sony Music Entertainment Korea Inc. said, referring to a local television audition program.

“So we suggested them to sing the song in Korean and release it worldwide, and that’s how the Korean version of the ‘Wings’ was born,” the company said.

The digital single can be purchased here on the online Korean music store Melon (basically like a Korean iTunes).

    Well this is interesting to read. So the members said they’re interested in Korean culture, have they said anything about being big fan of K-pop, and did they say anything about wanting to collaborate with any K-pop artists?

    I think this is amazing and I’m so tired of people hating on them because they don’t like english music. I’m not a little mix fan, but this song is good, and it is very much the kind of song kpop girl groups would make. I speak Korean and their Korean is very good, even better than some rookie groups with foreigner members. Also, their song topped charts in Korea for popular foreign songs, not to mention the girls that covered their song, just like there are people overseas that listen to kpop there are lots of koreans who listen to foreign music, so yes, they made their song for their korean fans, because they HAVE korean fans. Fact is, if we want more people to accept and listen to kpop we need more non-korean artists doing things like this. *deep breath*
    Well done little mix, keep doing what you’re doing and I hope you become daebak in Korea 🙂
