Girl’s Generation subunit TTS (TaeTiSeo) have released a new, Christmas themed EP and the title track, Dear Santa, has and English version.  While we tend not to post English versions of kpop tracks (because it’s either a bad one-to-one translation or the sentence structure is still in Korean and the lyrics are hard to understand), we can’t help but to do it this time because it sounds really good.  The ladies do an excellent job of turning what starts off as a Christmas breakup song into something more hopeful for the upcoming year.  The vocals are just energetic enough to match the seasonal production without sounding overly cutesy and their accents are near perfect with only a couple of pronunciation issues (which can be easily understood in context).
