Ok i didn't see any thing with the same topic there were a few that looked similar but what i want to know is

why? is it just how they guys look because most of them can't sing so what drives girls to like them? every time i look at the music section of the forum it's all "what asian boy band are you obsessed with?" or "what band member would you marry?" i just find it strange people could have such an attachment to something so superficial


if this is a dupe feel free to lock it

I have no idea...
Some of my friends is obessed with some band... don't recall the name thought...
As for myself i think that SOME but only SOME FEW of these asian band/group thing songs are good.
But i'm obbessed with almost everything asian -.- just not the bands >.<

As for your question "why"...
I think it's cuz they're too obessed with anything asian including the boys and by some weird instinct (dunno if i spelled that right) ppl get more loved if they're famous too -.-

Those bands are targeted at them. It's pretty normal for them to like it. I mean, c'mon, baby faced boys who sing bland but catchy pop songs? Teenaged girls everywhere go crazy for that. Always have. Look at Justin Bieber.

I mean, God love The Beatles, they were fabulous and were pretty much the biggest thing in music ever, but let's face it, when they were young, they honestly couldn't play that well. They just couldn't. Their songs were great and they were adorable, but they weren't exactly the best musicians. But still, teenaged girls lost their shit over them. They still lose their shit over them. I still lose my shit over them! Of course, with The Beatles, they grew up and got experience, plus they had always had two amazing songwriters, and at the beginning they were something totally and utterly new and revolutionized music forever. But still, it's the same thing in a way. They were cute and they had catchy music and people loved them.

Ugh, I just compared Justin Bieber to asian boybands to The Beatles. I need a nap.

im a crazed fan of everything asian, includin music, and i dont find it offensive if girls go crazy for a boy-band....so what if we download all their songs, even if other people think the songs are not good ? we like the songs, we find em catchy and fun - its our thing.....so what if we like the guys jus cuz they're cute ? again, its OUR thing.. ...u dont have to make us feel like outlaws just for that....!

It's mostly because I love their songs. And that they're good singers o_o
I didn't think SHINee were good looking at all when I first saw them,
but then I started listening to their music alot and then became attracted to themm :0
(i don't think most boy bands are good looking at all, but I still listen to them >__<)

the difference here is it sounds like you are actually listening to the music, what i don't understand is the mentality of "they look good so i'll listen to them" if you honestly like the music although i don't i won't judge, but the ones that are like " i want to marry whoever from whatever group" they really know nothing about this person they just look at them and decide to practically worship them i bet half of them only listen to the music because of what they look like and that's what i don't get

Umm i really don't know. I think it's their music. I mean when you compare their lyrics to the American ones, it's like uhh really different. to me i think all of he bands i listen to can sing VERY well. like DBSK, SJ, SS501 and etc. For those who says i want to get married with them and ohh they're the best. I'm pretty sure they saw them on game show, interviews, shows that they go on to like them. Also i think it's not only Asian boy bands. I mean Justin biber (which i do not find attractive at all), Robert Pattinson (don't really find attractive) and Taylor Lautner. uhhh wait they're not bands. whatever close enough. I think this pretty much happens to every popular celebrities.

Hmm well I don't think it's like those fangirls dislike the music and only listen to them because they're hot.
They may like the music but are REALLY obsessed with them because they think they look delicious : P
Like when a girl sees a really really hot guyy, she's going to be interested in him,
and have the urge to observe/stalk him. and it's very easy to stalk someone when they're famous. xD
maybe if you put yourself in their position you might understand ?

that was pretty much the point of this thread to gather peoples opinions on the subject and see if i can get a better grasp of it from other peoples point of view,

for example when i see a really hot girl my immediate though is "dam she's hot" but even with celebrities that's about as far as it goes i find no real desire to follow them, so i'm trying to see if the way other people see it helps make more sense for the ones who can't see it like that

It's the same way western boy bands used to be popular. But in parts of Asian, they make it into a huge package thing where the guy has to be able to dance and sing. (look good too of course) i think the companies are better at marketing them. The US just has the history and built up reputation right now; but Eastern media is growing now.

obviously they're a group of HOTTT and talented guys and their music is great. it's much better than american lyrics too.

define good lyrics because i consider most of the american pop culture scene (rap, hip hop, pop, some rock) lyrics to be crap, music these days seems more to be about getting famous than making music, i tend more to listen to music that has a meaning to the song than just catchy stuff

OH MY GOD!!! LOL!!!

Are you talking about Boy band lyrics as actually being something that's good?

All they need to do is make the at home fangirl feel like the boy band is speaking to her about love and sh*t, and they're good to go. It's the same generic crap all the time.
