No money, no honey.
They're under Japanese record labels, produced by Japanese producers, their songs made by Japanese composers, and dances choreographed by the Japanese too, but they're called K-Pop.
Well, it seems like they are about to be expelled from Japan but it also looks like Japan will be expelled from the whole of Asia.
Was J-Pop even that popular in Asia to begin with?
The way all the Yoshimoto talents praised KARA and Girls Generation at one point was horrible.
It was probably a business order and that was their job, but they all just lacked ethics.
Of course people will get tired of them.
I think that the male groups are still popular.
It might be impossible for the girl groups though.
I still see them on TV but I don't feel anything anymore towards them.
It seems that there are still some radio stations though that are still pushing for them.
Do you guys only watch TV? They're filling up domes, you know.
The K-pop boom might have been able to continue if they had at least one artistwho was like Namie Amuro.
Now, they're all saying "MomoClo this, MomoClo that".
I'd understand AKB, but I don't think Stardust has that kind of authority. There must be something going on back there.
I heard that K-Pop is declining even in Korea
If you don't like them, don't listen to them
I don't see anything wrong with K-Pop leaving Japan while other Asian countries are still welcoming them. They'll probably go away from those countries too in 2 years' time. Then maybe they'll go to Africa next.
Even the people who used to scream and go wild 2 years ago whenever they'd hear the word 'Korea' are saying "Oh Korean? No thanks..." nowadays. I seriously want to gather them up and tell them "See?"
80% of their global sales are from Japan? So will they even survive if they're not appreciated in Japan anymore?
Johnny's wasn't able to prevent the male groups from invading Japan. That's why they're still here.
Burning Publishers owns the rights to K-Pop so that was an impossible task for them. They're more powerful than Johnny's.
They only have about 3 different facial patterns
I only see dancers coming out of them.
I think they were also planning to market a Korean band, but it would have been impossible since even the Japanese bands aren't that popular.
These groups don't have any distinct characteristics. All their songs are also pretty similar.
I kinda liked BOA during her time here though.
I heard that she did some anti-Japan stuff when she went back there so it's impossible for me to like her now.
