because boy bands in America looks matured even though they're still young while Asian boy bands doesn't look old or matured no matter how old they are

haha yeah, ive wondered that too ! but i think its just cuz boy bands in asia just have better music and r hotter ! haha, i dont like american boy bands. lol

im just gonna say that i agree to both sides that boy bands in asia are more popular than in america because most of america (except the people who love them) just flat out think that boy bands are gay and have no talent and to some exstint i agree but there are some who have the talent but like someone here said they just have way too much ego for their own good and to a simpler point boy bands in asia..............ARE JUST PLAIN FREAKING HOT!!!

i think that maybe its becoz americans doesn't really like guys that are skinny and have a girly face. Since americans guys are all so muscular and such....

i think its becoz americans can't accept the concept of boybands stereotypes r stuck to boybands i.e can't sing,gay...etc. also they can't get along with each other long enough they all want to be in the spotlight etc

well i think b/c the ppl in america think boy bands are some gay ppl in a group

they automaticly say their gay T,T

Eurgh, same with me- but I've noticed most Caucasians generally have that opinion which really annoys me; I find it extremely rude and uncalled for. My friend's first comment when they saw a picture of DBSK was, "haha, they look gay" o.o; They did not even stop to think it might offend me or bother giving them a chance. I certainly don't go calling idols they admire and respect, "gay"...

I don't understand what gives them the right to call them that just because they're part of a boy band ._.
Meh, different cultures and a separate set of values. True, Asian guys tend to have a less solid build and more delicate features...but that doesn't mean they're gay O_o

yep, i agree...and maybe because yea the culture is different...uhm...they've been brain washed with rap and hip-hop and other songs that doesn't really make any sense...and all they really care about are the beats and how "gangsta" it sounds and so then it makes people feel all "gangsta" too..?

hmm...i've been wondering about it too...though its not just boy bands...its pretty much the songs itself....i guess...ah~ who knows...

No offense but I gave up on the American Entertainment business a long time ago. (Although I was born in America.)
They just all end up having scandals and fans move on to other celebrities.
I'm NOT saying that Asian celebrities don't do that.
But I'm Asian and Asian celebrities appeal more to me. (NOT saying that all Asians like the Asian entertainment industry.)

because the way America does boyands is stupid. really really stupid. they put everything in their looks and pansy dance moves, and Asian boy bands, can ACTUALLY sing, not to mention they can actually dance (prime Examples: Big Bang, DBSK, not mentioning any JE boys here because yes they can dance, but its kind of the corporate pelvic thrusting, which of course we still love anyway and they make up for it by being completely amazing personalities and mutitalented) Ahem, yeah anyway, thats why.

and seriously, though, can you find a Tegoshi Yuya or a Yamapi or T.O.P. or Hero Jaejoong in USA? No. you can't.

cuz america has its phases
the boy ban phase was long time ago like around the year 1998 or 2000 until ppl realized they were mostly followed by their pretty faces, they sold more posters and tshirts than records... even though i say nsync sounded really good

right now amrica is into the emo punk poser phase, so u would see a lot of emorockpunk wannabs, that will dress up in a certain way usually with piercings and dark eyeliner or the typical scene kid hair

sheesh americans find practically whatever is "in" in asia is gay! you know guys with long hair with certain styles, boybands, "pretty" guys, cute things, etc. Well america is just in a phase where certain thing is popular so other things will just fade away, asia as well.
