Tue Jun 04, 2019 2:07 am

I don't get it, it sucks just like the pop here the west. Honestly I just don't like pop general (idc if its in english or another language).but can someone elaborate this?

Pretty boys and sexy girls. That's the appeal of K-pop.

My sister is a big fan. I can't stand them, just like I can't stand most of Western pop music.

a lot of my girl friends (not the dating kind) say that's why they love K-pop and are very protective about it.

Boy bands are cyclical, I think. We have not had any good boy bands since NSYNC/BSB. It is time for more. I get it. I like a few K-Pop songs. That BTS with Halsey one I didn't even know was BTS.

While we're talking about K-Pop - it seems to me that the fan base is heavily skewed towards female?

At least from my observation in HK (and Taiwan to lesser extent), you rarely see dudes being huge K-Pop fans, but it's VERY easy to find girls being K-Pop fan looking for their "oppa".

But yes, otherwise it's all about "pretty boys". K-Pop music haven't exactly changed since the first Hallyu (Korean Wave) anyway.

You could ask what the appeal is about any genre though. I can't stand rap or smooth jazz but appreciate many people do see the appeal.

Young girls like pretty boys - and visa versa. It's that simple.

What's to elaborate? If you don't like pop in general, then you're not going to like K-Pop.

People have different tastes in music, art, whatever.
