Well, personally .. I have heard lots of people praising boy bands, calling them talented, charming, charismatic etc. But, from my point of view, it's not they are talented .. mass media makes us believe that they're talented. It's like the popular dude in our high school, who isn't really anything special, but we start to think he is because people around us tends to believe so. Who also probably got influenced by few others.
Now, if a broadcasting channel compliments a bunch of teens day and night, calling them handsome, talented, charismatic etc .. I wonder how many of us will actually remain unaffected.
Now, if you look at it objectively,
Does Hero jaejoong really sing as well as people believe he does? He definitely has a beautiful voice and carries tune, but then again .. there are a lot of people who can as well.
Their dancing isn't even as great as people make it seem to be.
So, do they really deserve the title of an 'idol'?


looking at it that way makes sense as the media is one of the most powerful forces around, and as i've always been weary of the media i don't pay much attention to what they hype up so that would probably be why i don't see those people as talented. though objectively there are probably people who genuinely like that type of music and it has nothing to do with the band

i completely fell in love with them><


LOL! I Love KAT-TUN from First Sight XD





my friend first showed me kat tun from their QOP concert Hell No...
n well, i don't particularly like Kame's hairstyle from there...i was so shocked that he was odagiri ryuu from gokusen2...coz i LOOVE odagiri ryuu...
but yea><


after of course, i listened 2 their music...i fell in love with them...n....i startted looking up their pics n stuff online...well,who knows that akanishi jin is one sexy guy??
xD


lmfao~ I fell for Kazuya first, his voice melted my heart, his acting made me feel his character and his personality was cute and fun.
but When I saw Jin, Gya! Not only he's good at singing, good at acting, good at creating lyrics he's also super cute...His personality is a bit...but He is a cool guy xD


well, i fell for kame as odagiri ryuu...n when he's in tatta hitotsu no koi....n nobuta....but after that....
after he CUT his hair.......well, idk y...but...all his hotness kinda melted away....lol
out of all the kat tun members, my fave singer would b him....(altho i like him sumtimes....but i prefer JIN<3)
but then, looks/talent wise would b Jin(talent as in dancing+modelling+acting.....+HIS HOTNESS)



I Actually Adore Both...but Yeah Jin....Kazu Is great an all but he's missing "Cute".
He's slightly below average in my eyes, no matter what hairstyle he has.





hmm

well, the thing is....ive been infactuated by akanishi jin 4 quite a while now....n ever since he left kat tun....i've been effing depressed
coz kat tun is a good band...i had hoped that they would stay a 6 instead of a 5....><
it's really upsetting.....n the way he's very americanized rite now...

to answer the original post - cause, well.. girls do have eyes and ears...

It's an industry that aims specifically for those fans and some of the music is quite good - and face it, these kids are chosen for their appeal.

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


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.


You Know What! At Least They Don't spit out non sense...
They're songs speak really well...like about romance, youth, friendship...(Mostly....Japanese bands)ect.

Good question. My theory is that more and more people are into East Asian boy bands is because they still have that allluring different cultural aspect but the dancing, clothes (I've yet to see a famous East Asian boy or girl band wearing traditional clothes from their respective countries while singing and dancing), visualization in MVs, rappish lyrics, & etc are very Westernized so its somewhat like watching what you are familiar with also with a mix of exoticness.

No offnce 2 any1 (I still wanna visit S. Korea) but I cant stand any of the S. Korean girl bands I've tried listening/watching to but can tolerate and love the boy bands because since I'm off the opposite sex which I know paints a picture of double standard & makes me seem like a shallow person

I honestly don't know. . . never checked into any of them.

But most asian bandmates look cute.

I don't want to say that I'm obsessed with Asian boy bands but ever since I saw Big Bang perform on Music Bank in 2007.....I was hooked. My main bias is Super Junior. They are just so different from what I'm used to seeing. They don't act like idols and I love that about them. The music, choreography, and the friendship they have is something fresh to me that I don't see here in America. Also, the loyalty that the fans have for their favorite idol group is amazing!

I guess it's beacause in their opinion the boy band members are hot and they are producing nice music.
