I think some Asians are kind of embarrassed of their country's music, especially if they're rather white-washed and try to compare it to American media and whatnot.
I've grown up listening to Thai stuff, and anyone that knows me knows I'm a Thai entertainment nerd~ =B
But even so, there are still some aspects about Thai media that kinda make me embarrassed, like the low production quality sometime, sometimes frequent covering of others' songs, and now the current trend for the teeny bopper groups to be massproduced clones of Jpop and Kpop styles u_u And I hate it when people degrade Thai music by comparing it to like American or whatever.
But dispite all that, there are still many Thai artists with much talent who I'm very proud of

My own nationality aside, I still enjoy Asian music from every Asian country. I don't know every language, but language barrier isn't a problem for me if it sounds nice~ Granted there are some Asian languages that sound better than others in my opinion, but I have something on my ipod I love from every Asian nation <3

All those who catagorize all Asian music as bad,simply because they can't get past the language barrier or whatever other reason is missing out on a buttload of good music only limiting themselves to english :3

hey guys.. just posting this cuz i'm curious.. why do
people whatever your nationality is.. don't like some asian musics?


..well, at most cases, foreigners dont understand the language. also, it doesnt mean that if you're an asian, you understand all the Asian languages..

personally, im not a fan of mainstream filipino music. no offense, not that they're not good or anything.. just that, their too mainstream. but i like filipino classics.. and old school pinoy rock.

It may not be mainstream in your country, but it is mainstream in their respective countries. Let's take Korean music for example. A lot of people I know do not consider groups like Super Junior and DBSK as mainstream because they do not play it on their local radio stations and on local MTVs. However if you've seen Korean TV channels, they often dominate the screen. At the same time, I ask the very same people if they know who Jung Sung-Ha is (he's really awesome by the way), they'll give me a blank look. I guess people don't dive deep down enough to find good music.

I'm vietnamese, but I'd totally prefer korean or japanese music any day, any time, any moment. Personally, I just don't like vietnamese music, there's not enough variety and everything sounds the same to me. What makes it worse for me is that even though I can speak it fluently, when people sing...I just don't understand them...:D

Yeah. my whole playlist is actually only asian music. only like 2 or 3 of them are english.

because they don't understand other languages that's why they lack of interest in listening to it.

Some I can't understand.I only speak 3 different languages. Vietnamese,English,and Spanish.
And most of the songs are Love Songs.English there's more variety.
The reason I like most are because the artist have very nice voices.
