So why do you think there are still so many boy bands here in Asia while in America, they've already been EXPIRED a long, long time ago? lol

i wished america didnt end the rise of boybands. asian boybands are A LOT!! i mean i just saw this new korean boybands like shinee,

I think it is because celebrities in the US like to put themselves in an exclusive societal class... so they can't do the funny things that celebrities in asia do... there aren't as many funny reality shows in america that let boy bands gain our love and in the US, being cute has been overrated for most people, but nevertheless I still love my boy bands <3

Well, to me, (not to sound rude)
but japan and places do a lot of things that america does,
and so when we had "boy bands"
it later got cool, so they did it,
and when we got our scene/ emo kids
they got there j rock people
so they just copy.

personally i think its because asian boybands are way more appealing!
American boybands had quite ugly guys in it.[my opinion]
asian boybands have such hott guys in them that makes people more attracted them.
take dbsk as a fantastic example(:
although dbsk has actual talent to back them up with(:

my opinion -
People in America aren't feeling the whole BOYBAND thing.
People in Asia on the other hand love them.

I think Asian Boy band could've made it in the 90s in America, that's when boy bands were very popular.

or they could of not want to be like everyone else where the boy bands were popular in the 90s, so they waited to bring them out after all the other boy bands died out.

tho im more into the girl groups

Because Asians (and of course for people like us who are are non-asian like me) have good taste in music! Rap music has consumed to many American minds.

Because american people have big opinions. They would think boy bands are gay. Maybe dbsk can make it in america because they have actual talent and they dont do much FAn Service (Which american public will call it GAY but asian people loves it.)

probaly because American industry thinks boybands are cheezy or smth, and
just got this idea that having solo artist are way better,
but i personally dont care becasue as long as their are asian groups i'll be happy, asian boybands seem
way more approchable then american stars.

Because Americans (not me) think boybands are gay, and if I were a someone who's never seen Asian entertainment, I'd think they're gay too. Thank God I'm not like that. The only boybands that were popular were Nsync and Backstreet Boys. I think America has tried to bring boybands back into the music scene, but they've failed. P-Diddy made a boyband, but I don't know much about them. Plus, America is into hip hop and R&B.
