KARA was originally intended to promote Jumping in Korea before the Japanese release, but (according to what I’ve heard) Seung-yeon injured her spine while working out so the Korean promotion had to be postponed until after the Japanese release date.
The Korean version of the video is very similar to the Japanese version, but it’s shot a little differently and has a few new scenes.

I usually prefer Korean versions over Japanese versions (I find Korean smoother and less “staccato” than Japanese), but that hasn’t been the case with Jumping. It could partly be because I heard the Japanese version first and I haven’t listened to the Korean version so many times yet. But one thing that “bothers” me with the Korean version of the song is the excessive repetition of the same words. Did they run out of lyrics? Don’t get me wrong, though. I still love it.
Jumping is the title track of KARA’s latest Korean mini-album.
