British Supermarket giant Tesco is currently selling the live version of HyunA’s Change in MP3 format on their media selling website ‘Tesco Entertainment’.
The MP3 is going for £0.89, 10 pence more expensive than on iTunes. Unsurprisingly, there are several mistakes in the post, with the image displayed being one of T-Ara, Junhyung being spelt ‘Junhyun’ and the use of BEAST’s old name, B2ST – which is also stylised wrong. T-Ara – written on the page as ‘Tara’ – is also listed as an artist on the post.
Despite the mistakes, it’s great to see K-pop sold on the Tesco website, if only in MP3 format. HyunA’s Change was previously available on Virgin On Demand, although it’s no longer listed. However the English version of SNSD’s The Boys is still available, making it the only K-pop song on the service. There are still K-pop songs available on Tap Tap Revenge 4.

UPDATE: The site is also selling SHINee, 2NE1, Super Junior, SNSD, DBSK/TVXQ, MBLAQ and 4Minute MP3s along with several BEAST, 4Minute and HyunA albums – in CD form.
