Gwaenchanha ~Daijoubu~ (ケンチャナ〜大丈夫〜; It's Alright ~It's Alright~) is Maeda Yuki's ninth single, and her last as a member of Hello! Project. It was released on February 25, 2009. "Gwaenchanha" (괜찮아) is a Korean word that has the same meaning as "Daijoubu."
This single is Maeda's first Korean themed single in a series of three. She collaborated with Korean song/music writer Yoo Hae-Joon and lyricist Mori Chiyoko. The duo would go on to produce all of her Korean themed singles, with the help of different composers.
