Koisuru Fortune Cookie English Version – Twitterverse Reaction
JKT48 have just released their Koisuru Fortune Cookie English Version when an uploader upload the Audio rip to SoundCloud that ignited various reaction around Twitterverse from both local and international fans.
Here are some of the reactions from Twitterverse :
“It’s pretty good!” Reaction
Translation: Eat your high expectation for Koisuru Fortune Cookie – English version out! Their version disgust me!
Translation: Are they gargled themselves while singing?
And many more, especially from the -surprisingly- local Indonesia fandom that criticize either the girls pronunciation for not “English” enough and criticizing the lyric for being “Weird”.
My own take? well, I’m not a native English speaker nor do I have the credibility to create a good English lyric (Refer to my “poem” for Shan’s in our YouTube account for my take on creating English lyric) as well as my weird English pronunciation (Refer to my review for the Official Guidebook Vol.02 in our YouTube account) so I’m not in any position to give a full-fledged review for the girls’ effort in singing the song in English. Perhaps either RHKilis, Kurisu, Sultan or Ros who use English in their daily conversation can do one in the future.
But I have to admit that their first take of singing a song in English is pretty good. I could understand some of the lyrics at my first take listening to the song which means their pronunciation is not that bad. The lyrics, translated by @hasief, are pretty well written as well, at least for me.

So there, my short take , what about yours? what do you think of the English version? Write down your opinion down there in the comment form!
One of our authors with English as her mother tongue, Kurisu, already gave her opinion
