Hmmm not just music but anime as well since im english. Its not just parents but other family as well, friends are mostly ok, the odd joke. My manager makes fun of me all the time, but i dont care. Usually for that question "do you know what there saying?" the answers usually no or i have a rough idea, usally i dont care whats being said(often its translates badly and doesnt seem as good when i know lol) its just how it sounds, how it makes you feel, just the same as if it was in english, i cant think of any songs i like just because of what they say, its all about how i feel when i listen to it, so what language its in doesnt make any difference in my opinion.

For the most part, where parents are concern i can always say you raised me to be independant, to make my own choices and decisions based on my thoughts and feelings, not to follow the crowd and do what everyone else does. Though im older now, so they dont really bother me with anything, but it was worse a few years ago.

i'm an asian living in an asian country, so there's no reason for them to get mad at me it's just normal.

In my country it is not very usual to listen to asian music (or watch jdoramas - and anime is still like something for kids ) so my mum thinks I'm weird... but she is not mad she just ignores me and my music and everything

NO! They're very supportive. My aunt's addicted to BIGBANG. Even though our neighbors found us weird, we still continue to playing asian songs aloud

I'm Brazilian so when I listen to J- or K-Music my parents think it weird , but they listen to English songs and don't know what it says so...
My brother who knows English annoys me about it, especially if I sing along, but I don't care I have friends that sing along too so its all good

My parents think I'm really weird for listening to it, but they have no real problems. My mom even likes a few songs The thing they do have a problem with is that I download them off the internet. They're big on the copyright laws... I'd totally buy them if I could find them for sale anywhere... >.<

I'm Asian, I listen to K-pop and Japanese Music, My parents doesn't get mad though, They're just confused why I prefer K-pop and Japanese songs to English songs! They always ask why do I listen to K-pop and J-pop even i don't understand them, My brother always insults the Asian Bands I like, I'm MAD.....

No because they know that their child (me XD) is very addicted when it comes to Asian songs especially J-Pop & K-Pop.

No. Cause I've been singing asian songs since two or 3 years ago. They're used to it. Even the neighbors who are passing by our house. Because our computer is at the living room and I play music very loud. Even if I use my laptop upstairs, I play music in the highest volume as if somebody is having a concert. lol
