So yeah, this happened. I don't know if anyone mentioned it in the KPop spam or not, but here it is.
It's not too farfetched for an Asian artist to be inspired by Latino genres. For example, in the mid-2000s, Bon-Bon Blanco's act pretty much revolved around it (see "Namida no Hurricane", "Datte, Onna no ko Nan da Mon", etc.). For single songs that come to mind, there are Tanimura Nana's "SEXY SENORITA" and, you can even say, Morning Musume's "Iroppoi Jirettai". I've been hearing more reggaeton lately like lecca's "Sky is the Limit" and Wassup's "Hotter than a Summer".
