No really...
When i listen music then i feel quite relaxed and happy. In real manner music is my love and passion. When i get to make myself sad then would like to listen muzzzik.

Not really. They think it's weird that I like the music when I don't necessarily understand the lyrics, but they accept that it's part of who I am and don't really say anything to me about it. Although, I did get my mom to listen to BoA's Best&USA and Utada Hikaru's Heart Station albums in the car once and it didn't really bother her that much.

Any parent who disapproves of their children's music for anything related to it being in a different language is a bit of a twat.

"A bit of a twat" doesn't even begin to describe it. Try ethnocentric and xenophobic. It's astounding how many kids in this thread confuse their parents' wilful ignorance with plain old strictness. That's worrisome at best. And the whole "but you don't understand what they're saying" argument is weaker than a granny trying to deadlift. The whole point of exposing oneself to the unfamiliar is to gain a deeper understanding and ideally, crush any prior misconceptions.

SO, KIDS: Stop putting up with your parents' racist asses. Maybe. That's definitely not going to have the same result for everyone. On top of that, we all know how dogmatic and stubborn the older generation is. What I'm saying is, I guess I'm really not sure what to say here?

I'm glad that I'm not the only sensible one here~

My parents don't mind me listening to J-Pop because they don't mind me listening to ANY kind of music. The music I listen to has nothing to do with them. Any parents that crtitisize or ridicule their children for something as trivial as a genre or language of music is a shallow person~~

No. They really don't mind about me either listening to Asian music or even others. ^~^

My mom is okay with me listening to Kpop but my dad gets SOOO annoyed by it! He gets mad because I listen to it 24/7 (which I do). He tries to tell me that there is other good music, but it's not my fault that Kpop is the only music that appeals to me. Kpop helps me get through life, and it's the one of the only things that's been making me happy. My dad even said to me today when I was listening to MAMA by EXO-K,"Don't be suprised if I committ suicide!" I mean, that's really hurtful, he should give Kpop a chance, it's actually amazing music. Atleast i dont listen to that emo and goth music. I like some regular pop songs, but Kpop is so much better.Atleast my mom understands my need for Kpop. Kpop, HWAITING! :)"

My Parent's are so-so I guess, luckily. Though they always make fun of me because I really listen to Jrock a lot.

For people who do get grounded by their parent's:

Just be who you are. They gotta accept you! Make them if you must! (Loud speakers and such maybeh?)
