“We thought it would be fun to put out a special Korean version of ‘Be Sweet’ preceding our upcoming performance in Seoul," Zauner said in a statement. "Im very grateful Yaeji helped me with the translation over a year ago. So!YoON! is one of my favorite indie artists in Seoul right now and I’m so happy we got to collab."

Japanese Breakfast is currently on a lengthy set of live dates that run until the end of 2022. Earlier this year it was announced that Zauner's best-selling memoir Crying In H Mart will be adapted into a movie. Seo So Neon's latest EP Nonadaptive was released 2020.
