A lot of Americans are into hip hop and rap nowadays. Not saying ALL, but A LOT. Most hip hop and rap artists are solo, so boybands aren't the thing around America. Many Americans tend to go with what's cool, and what's not. To a lot of Americans, boybands aren't cool, they're considered "lame" and "gay". The hype goes all around, then sooner or later, more Americans start thinking boybands aren't that cool.

I don't really care about what's cool nowadays and what's not, that's why I'm more into Asian music than American. I don't know why Asians like boybands a lot, but I do, too. I like their music, and the guys are really cute and hot

What the hell is with all these boyband threads? It's like we're trying to start a war or something XD

American now is wayyyy too occupied with hip hop, rap, RnB, and rock. They just can't accept boybands anymore because for them its "outdated" if any Asian countries tries to bring in a boy band at this moment...thats gonna cause some controversies :\

That's one good thing about the american music industry though. They don't rely ALL on looks, while looks play 80% of your fame in the asian music industry.

Because in America, people always criticize bands for not making one person solo, or taking one person out of the band.

its like once they hit mid-20's their not young and hot anymore
in asia boy bands are supported a lot, so yeah they last longer

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.


AGREE WITH YOU.
Just to add some...
I think that the American boy band r not so popular theseday bcoz their member don't cooperate, everyone want to be the number 1, and they end up splitting. They have too much ego. [just opinion, no offence]

Yeah, with Asian boybands, there's not really THE guy that's the center of the band. It's like with Nsync and Backstreet Boys--There were about two that everyone knew and the rest, no one had a clue what their names were. In Asian ones, every member has their own equal fanclub.

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.



That's the exact opposite of how I feel..........I feel like it would be harder to approach an Asian artist than an American one... maybe because of the language barrier or because some asian artists like Myavi for example wouldn't do certain things with a fan in fear of what his other fans would think but I see American one go all out for just one fan all the time.

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(:


Wow! My thoughts exactly. Plus I think asians age better in general, hope no one is offended. In America boybands are reserved for those under the age of 25 but in asia things seem to be different. As long as the ppl have talent it doesn't necessarily matter how old they get, their fans will still continue to support them.
