I feel this is an unfair comparison.

What OP is comparing is American bands (Paramore and Panic!) to the likes of Asian "bands" (Big Bang and SuJu).
However, Big Bang and SuJu are indeed classified as "Korean boy bands" they are not BANDS in the conventional sense.
Although some members may have the ability to play instruments, they do not play their own music/instrumentals. They are boy bands.

I feel comparing Paramore to KAT-TUN or Arashi is a pretty big leap, if the OP was making the comparison to UVERworld or Royal Pirates, I would find that suitable. However, in this situation, comparing those Asian groups to the Western versions of boy bands - 1D (UK band), Backstreet Boys and otherwise is more appropriate. On that front, I would have to go for Asian boy bands as they put more time/effort/money into promotions, appearances, not just singing/rapping but dancing, releasing music, fan service and concerts.

I think mainstream music across the board, not necessarily pop, is not really my preference. However I do like many songs, especially the dance music. What I don't like are people who evaluate music based on how vague the lyrics are. This doesn't apply much since many people listen to music without even understanding a word of that language.

I just really hate it when some guy who listens to Train just comes in to insults pop music because they lyrics "weren't good enough". I guess that logic suggest that Beethoven was a bad musician too hm? Many miss the fact that the music is not one by itself, but is correlated to it's dance. I mean, are people suggesting that music should be like Train? Like it's a crime to listen to dance music. Make them look like a ignorant twit.

Some bands in asia are better than america, some in america are better than ones in asia. Can we agree that it is preference rather than who is better? If you looked hard enough you'll find something you like.

Don't discount brits from the mix, there are plenty of good western bands in general, just take a look at the classic rock genre...

I can't even listen to Japanese and Korean music because there's nowhere to buy it.

To be honest no.

But for the Asian bands, I really like their guitar sounds.

I am getting bored pretty soon when listening to american songs, it's just the same commercial sound over and over again. But asian music have something different and lyrics are much more better if you understand it.

I like music no matter where it comes from; though, I do prefer English music because I can understand it.

You don't get stuff like Animal Collective, The Velvet Underground, or Talking Heads in Asia. I'm glad that people can find things that they enjoy, but what I have to say is that for music that is culturally significant, fresh and innovative, America's got a lot of variety.

I think Asians listen more to American and British bands and Europeans listen more to KPOP and JPOP etc.

I honestly couldn't care less where the music comes from. If it's shit, it's shit. That said, I can't stand 99.99% of Japanese/Korean music, because it all sounds so inaccurately executed, and shallow. By shallow I mean in instances such as heavy metal music, where they make it sound cheery. You know you missed the whole freaking point, hence shallow, when you make heavy metal music sound cheery. These types of people need to tumble into a very deep well and never be able to climb back up again, for sure.
