I never thought my musical taste outside of K-pop or J-pop would be interesting at all, but this surprisingly isn’t the only time I’ve gotten an inquiry about it.
Apart from K-pop and J-pop, do you listen to other Asian music? Why or why not? What makes it appealing or not appealing?
No, I don’t listen to any other Asian music besides Korean and Japanese.
Why? Well, if I’m being totally honest, it’s because I don’t find the other Asian languages aurally pleasing. Dunno, just not pleasant to listen to for me.
Additionally, the production quality seems generally inferior as well, apart from some quality Chinese stuff I’ve heard.
Personally though, I can’t get past the language thing. I listen to music primarily because it sounds good, so it’s a deal breaker.
Just keeping it real.
I have nothing better to do, so send me your questions here: Ask Asian Junkie.
