I tried to not let my mom listen any Asian music I listen to as much as possible, because she'll think I'm much weirder as she thinks I' am although she look at the CD I wanted for xmas (DBSK-T) and the price of it and ask me wtf would I want to get a cd for $36 bucks?! anyways she knows, that I like Hispanic music and I half know Spanish (currently trying to learn Japanese and finish my Spanish) so It's cool that as far as I let my mom know of my music taste. If she hears me playing Minmi's fly high I turn it off.

Yes! I thought no one had the se situation as me. XD I'm Filipino, and I love Japanese music. Whenever my mom comes in the room, and I'm listening to my Japanese music, she gets so mad. She says that it's annoying and stuff. I can't believe she says that. I love Japanese music. She keeps bringing up the past in WWII with the Philippines and Japan. >< It gets me soooo frustrated.

i loveee listening to korean and japanese music. even chinese, i m an open person who listens to all music(tho i dont like rock very much). But i tend to listen to asian music more, because im asian. My parents don't really mind, as long as i dont get too absorbed(eventho sumtimes i do!) and the lyrics arent offensive. Half the time, i dont even know what im saying, but i sing it anyways~ which i think is pretty cool cuz i can sing in another language!!!! But it's kinda sad that none of my school friends understand WHY i listen to something i dont even understand. When they make me listen to their DARN M-C-R rock songs, I make them listen to BIG BANG!!! XDXDXD

My parents don't get mad at me because I make sure that my addiction to Jpop and Kpop and DBSK in particular doesn't affect my studies and everything else that is more important! I prove to them that I am clear with my priorities and certain about my goals so they don't have anything to worry about.

I am Asian but I only speak Filipino, our national language and English. I don't understand Japanese, Korean or Chinese songs at all unless I look up for their English translations. I don't know what's with these songs that makes them so addictive though I can't even understand a word. Listening to and watching DBSK makes my day!

my friends + my roommate couldn't understand why i'm sooo in k-pop & j-pop.
glad, i found some other friends who has the same interest. Lessen that weirdness...
when my parents found out, my mom was like "why r u listening such songs when u don't understand them?"
then she approved when i told her i understood the song (i've seen the translated lyrics, haha)
