Cause I hear in some Korean Dramas they're like playing some American songg.


in korean dramas, when they are in a cafe or restaurant, there is always english music.
when you know popular english music, i guess you could say you're considered "cool"?
in my korean summer camp (i was a teacher's assistant) many of the korean kids asked me to write a list of popular korean music for them haha

Of course we do, although I don't think that many people listen to the Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana. Their image doesn't appeal to asians as much. I'm asian and I can't stand them, ugly and untalented in my opinion. Most asians when they think of american music they think of hip hop, and r&b.

Filipinos generally listens to local music and songs from the US and UK

It's rare to find us listening to jrock,jpop,kpop,chinese songs......

I see. Well I was just stating some singers that came up in my head at the time. But I mean American singers in general. Because here in the US, basically 6/10 girls in my school love the Jonas Brothers or anything Disney related. So I figured if they're so popular here, if they were popular in Asia.

But from you guys' responses, it seems that they don't even know who they are. XDD

I went to Vietnam last summer and saw on Disney Channel Asia. Gawsh... all the Asian girls scream for Hannah Montana. Probably not Japan. Maybe Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam itself!
Actually, it's funny. One Vietnamese newspaper said Miley is the new Britney Spears. Ahaha. But yeah. They do. SOME do.

lol, yeah, living in America, it's kind of hard to ignore what everyone else around you is listening to but I also listen to music from Asia
I listen to anything that sounds good but country, screamo, and rap dont appeal to me at all

oops, misread, not sure about other countries, but my cousin in China hasn't heard of any of the singers in America

Its highly unlikely people in Asia listen to Jonas Brothers but I know for a fact that they listen to Beyonce and people from the 80s and 90s
