First up. PLEASE DONT START BASHING AND COMPLAINING AFTER READING THE TITLE.

We all know that the Kpop wave is sweeping across Asia. But are they that phenomenal?
Here's a sober second thought.

SUPER JUNIOR
Well, I mean 13 people..with that name is obviously the company just wants all their profits. Super Junior is an pretty awesome dance group like most of the other groups in SM entertainment. After the Hangeng incident...well...who knows? But we have to be honest that not ALL thirteen of them look stunning gorgeous rite? We all have our favorites and etc...All of them can dance no problem for sure. No arguement there. But do they really have the voice? Once their lives are MR, do you still think that way? If anyone is going to tell me that they sing like angels, i won't comment on your views on angels.

BIG BANG
I don't know this group well, and I probably can't argue this without fans bashing me. But, they are really overrated. Big Bang members have solo projects and their music is suppose to "touch your soul". Honestly, it doesn't to me at all. Taeyang's a great dancer, most arguably that best one out there. HIS DANCE has soul. He loves dancing and he's good. But his voice? Not so much so. Honestly, they aren't down right gorgeous either. But if you say entertainers don't have to be gorgeous or they are gorgeous in your opinion, and I dunno what to say.

DBSK/TVXQ/Tohoshinki
With them disbanding,(not official but probably) millions of fans are crying their hearts out. DBSK has the best vocals. Not every single one of them are drop dead gorgeous either, but enough that they can hold a concert in Tokyo dome. To me they are the best group out there, but let's not start a war on who's better and who's not.

SNSD (Girl's Generation)
Korea's national fairies!! Known for their beautiful faces and legs they are creating a phenomenal sweep across Asia. With their hits this year, "Oh, Run devil Run and Hoot" and remakes of japanese mvs of "genie, tell me your wish" and "Gee" they have entered the Japanese Oricon charts. But are they are as great as they say? Not everyone of them have beautiful faces. Taeyeon has the voice, but she's isn't really down right pretty. Yoona is the "face" of Snsd, but I think she looks more innocent than she's pretty. She's pretty, but NOT HEAVENLY beautiful. I like her nonetheless, she's is pretty XD But Yuri or Sooyoung could have most camera time. Besides, she's a wonderful actress, sadly not a singer. No one's perfect though rite?

Lastly, their lyrics aren't that great. Most of their songs are shallow, and "bubble gum pop". All their concepts come from America and it's being wayyy too american. Like Snsd's "hoot"...totally America in the 1950s...

Any thoughts? Please don't bash me. I listen to Kpop all the time, it's just that I don't see why it's really that phenomenal. Like for asian people, eating rice is okay, but rice can't be DELICIOUS without anything with it rite? But if you do, well good for you.

1. "Once MR is removed"...once Music Removed is removed?
2. "007 concept. Where did that come from? America!" Actually 007 is written by a Brittish author in the 1950's
3. TVFQ?? lol
4. People arn't aloud to like "bubble gum pop"??? you make is sound like "bubble gum pop" is a bad thing. I mean SNSD was originaly aimed at young girls. Some people like it some don't...whatever
5. Yoona got pretty average reviews for her acting...you say it's wonderful -______-

What's not to like hot guys/girls singing and dancing catchy songs...?
You can't go around calling people overrated just because you don't like their music. You obviously don't have a good ear to recognize good talent you only can recognize things that you like (refer to point 5.) ...there's a difference. Eg: Big Bang, they write their own songs plus Daesung and Taeyeng are considered to be some of the top male singers in Korea (atleast top 50)
Just because Korea is becoming the new Japan** you don't have to make butthurt threads about it...
**Japan had the same affect that Korea is having now in the 90's

Some people like fried rice some like plain boiled rice. At the end of the day don't wonder why people like what they like, just stick to your own tastes.

To point one and two. Woops, sry my mistake. Either way, their image is really centred with America. OR British or whatever you want to call it. Their hairstyles definitely came from America in the 1950s!
People aren't alloud? I didn't say they weren't allowed. It's like candy isn't good for you, but you don't have to BAN it.
I think Yoona's acting is pretty good, regardless of reviews. Just like you think Big Bang is great and I don't. Just because most people like Big Bang doesn't mean it's good? "You obviously don't have a good ear to recognize good talent you only can recognize things that you like" Just because "Big Bang, they write their own songs plus Daesung and Taeyeng are considered to be some of the top male singers in Korea (" doesn't mean I agree.

And i'm not wondering what people like? I mean if I was wondering about, I wouldn't start this topic o_O If you mean, don't even start this conversation, then how about you don't communicate with people?

all ur doing is proving my point...for arguments sake lets say u dont like rock music, like really hate it. but then a u see the best guitarist in the world shread a awesome solo right infront of u. u would still probably hate it coz its rock even tho hes the best guitarist in the world....

thats why kpop is so "phenomenal" coz they have "phenomenal" talent

^ Well you answered my comment :/

no offense it sounds like your just ranting and contributing to hate threads. To me I think your basically sharing your opinion on what the groups flaws and talents they have. Their no need for these threads as their are lots of groups , threads etc with these discussion.
